It's a building the likes of which New York City has never seen. The opening of this new landmark – the Oculus entrance to the World Trade Center Transportation Hub – is a major milestone for both New York and Skanska.
The World Trade Center Transportation Hub's Oculus has a simple elegance, with steel columns that gracefully rise from the ground to become wings that hover up to 205 feet in the air. Behind that simplicity was an incredibly complicated construction effort.
Sometimes what we build transports people from one place to another. Sometimes it redefines a neighborhood. And sometimes it sparks creativity and inspires generations to come. All three of these achievements came together in New York's World Trade Center Transportation Hub – including the Oculus – making it the project of a lifetime for our people.
