FINANCIAL DISTRICT — The 365,000-square foot shopping complex inside the World Trade Center is pushing ahead — and is now fully leased.
A slew of shops, about 125 in total, are slated to open in the first half of 2016, according to Westfield Group, the Australian mall developer that owns the space.
The massive retail area will take up space inside the WTC's Oculus — the huge, white winged centerpiece of the WTC transit hub — as well as inside 3 WTC, 4 WTC and underground corridors linking the PATH train and subways to the streets above.
Eventually, when 2 WTC opens in the next several years, Westfield will launch an additional 90,000 square-feet of retail, the company said.
News of the mix of retail — from expansive food anchors like Eataly and Epicerie Boulud to beauty and clothing chains, like Sephora and Cole Haan, have been trickling out over the past several months.
While the retail is fully leased, as first reported by Women's Wear Daily, only 57 shops have been confirmed by Westfield.
