WTC Eataly Scheduled To Open In July


Big developments are coming to the Westfield World Trade Center mall. Of the 120 stores scheduled to move into the new space, 100 are expected to open within a year, reports Tribeca Citizen. Moreover, many of these stores will be flagships; the Apple Store, for instance, promises to be “unrivaled in the world.” Other notable news surrounding the WTC PATH hub and its surrounding area:

  • The first Westfield mall store will open this summer on August 16.
  • Surprisingly, stores will be open seven days a week. New York’s Financial District is pretty much a ghost town on weekends, so hopefully these stores will bring some life to the area.
  • The Oculus and the plaza area that surrounds it will become “arts-committed spaces” with events, concerts, and other public programming.
  • The 40,000-square-foot Eataly inside 4 World Trade Center is running ahead of schedule and will likely open this July.
  • Demolition of the temporary PATH station is expected to begin late this summer.
