The three-million-square-foot, state-of-the-art office tower was designed by the world-class architecture firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.

Tenants will t access to at least 360,000 square feet of new retail and restaurants, in addition to s hotels.  The site will be served by multiple subways lines and PATH service at a new Santiago Calatrava-designed station situated at the heart of a bi-state transportation network.
