The British architect Richard Rogers, who helped create the Pompidou Center in Paris and is remaking the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in Manhattan, has been chosen to design a tower to be built by the developer Larry A. Silverstein at the former World Trade Center site.
Lord Rogers will design Tower 3 at 175 Greenwich Street, which will include two million square feet of office space. Tower 3 is Lord Rogers’s fourth major commission in New York. In addition to the Javits Center, which he is designing with FX Fowle, he is involved in a $200 million project to transform a two-mile stretch of the Lower Manhattan waterfront and a $1 billion expansion of Silvercup Studios in Long Island City, Queens.
