Berger Group, Bloustein alumni committed to WTC redevelopment efforts

Members of The Berger Group’s World Trade Center Redevelopment project staff.

The redevelopment of the 16-acre World Trade Center site, encompassing over 10 million gross square feet of new facilities, represents one of the largest, and certainly the most visible and politically sensitive, construction programs in the United States. The $20 billion redevelopment program comprises more than two dozen individual projects with a diverse range of structures, including multi-story commercial and retail space, a major transportation hub, a memorial and museum, streets and infrastructure modifications, a performing arts center, below-grade vehicle security center, storage, parking and a central chiller plant. The World Trade Center redevelopment program is funded by both public and private sources and involves more than 25 federal, state, local and other interest groups and stakeholders.
