Discussion of the challenges of Rebuilding One World Trade After 9/11
The HBS Club of NY is pleased to offer a special opportunity to visit One World Trade Center, experience the views and other exhibits at the top floor Observatory, and then participate in a discussion of the challenges of rebuilding One World Trade after 9/11.

The group will meet in the lobby at 10:15 am. We have secured V.I.P. tickets, so we will be able to go to the front of the line. We will then go visit the 100-102 floors, where there will be absolutely unmatched views of the entire city. In addition, One World Observatory includes a number of exhibits and other attractions that are fascinating.

Lunch & Discussion About the Rebuilding of One World Trade Center
After the tour of the Observatory, we will go back down to the lobby and then back up to the 64th floor to One World Commons. We will be able to buy lunch (sandwiches and salads).
Then we will meet with a senior executive of the Durst Organization, which in conjunction with the Port Authority, built One World Trade, and manages the building. The topic of the discussion will be the challenges of rebuilding One World Trade after 9/11.

This is an incredible story that has never been fully told. The rebuilding of One World Trade involved politics, future potential acts of terrorism, conflicting interests among the Port Authority and other stakeholders, space for the Memorial and the Museum, and the overall development of downtown Manhattan.

This should be a special opportunity to experience great views and gain a better understanding of the history of the past 17 years.
