Perelman Performing Arts Center
Facade Work Finishing Up at New WTC Venue
Marble facade installation has almost completed at Ronald O. Perelman Performing Arts Center; the newest addition to the World Trade Center complex. Developed by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the center sits directly next to 1 WTC, where it will soon host a wide variety of music and theater performances. The center's modern cube design is the work of both REX, and Davis Brody Bond. General contracting the project is local NYC builder, Sciame Construction.
The 129,000 sqft. center will have flexible walls, allowing for up to 11 interior configurations. It will therefore be able to host events with different attendance sizes, ranging from 99 to 1,200 seats.
Although not scheduled to finish until mid-2023, the sleek exterior of the building fits right in with the modern architectural variety found within and around the WTC complex. The clean, yet beautifully simple design contrasts nicely with 1 WTC next door and The Oculus across the way. Also with plans for the facade to illuminate in the dark, strategically placed lighting will ensure that Perelman Center is a sight to behold after sunset as well.
