“From the core areas of fashion, dining, beauty, entertainment, and technology, our mix is well suited to the dynamic and diverse audiences we will serve including local and nearby residents, professionals and travellers from around the
US and the world,” said Miles.

“Our dining collection is simply extraordinary, and will be a unique draw that will cement Westfield World Trade Center’s place in the social fabric of New York City and as a destination for visitors from near and far.

“Our blend of casual and upscale culinary options will offer a full gourmet experience.”

“In addition to exceptional retail and dining, Westfield World Trade Center will offer visitors access to a wide range of events, arts and other cultural initiatives as well as best in class services and amenities supported by a state of the art technology platform that will transform the shopping experience.”
