Eataly will open in July – and other scheduling

The Tribeca Citizen reports on a number of Lower Manhattan openings —

Eataly is scheduled to open in 4 World Trade Center in July 2016.

100 of the Westfield World Trade Center stores are due to open within the year;  the first one will open August 16, 2016.

Demolition of the temporary PATH station is expected to begin in late summer.

3 World Trade Center is on schedule to open in 2018.

The Oculus, the space between the Oculus and Church Street, and Cortlandt Way (the pedestrian-only street between 3WTC and 4WTC) have been dubbed “arts-committed spaces,” that will host events and programs.

“The World Trade Center Performing Arts Center is now in the design phase and has 85 employees. It will be a home for the Tribeca Film Festival, and naming opportunities are under negotiation. There will be three theaters on the ground floor holding 199, 299 and 499 seats, and they can be combined to created one 1,200-square-foot theater. The WTC PAC will be open from morning to late evening with a ground-level café/restaurant and performances throughout the day and evening. Completion date is contingent on many moving parts, but they are hoping for 2020.”

The E train connection to the Oculus could open as early as the end of 2016.
