LMDC - Remember Rebuild Renew


The Lower Manhattan Development Corporation has on display the design for the WTC Memorial. The 1,776' tall spire creates a strong skyline, as well as commemorating an important year in American history. Be sure to browse through the slide show to get an idea of the depth of this project.

MEMORIAL MISSION STATEMENT FOR THE WORLD TRADE CENTER SITE


  • REMEMBER AND HONOR THE THOUSANDS OF INNOCENT MEN, WOMEN, AND CHILDREN MURDERED BY TERRORISTS IN THE HORRIFIC ATTACKS OF FEBRUARY 26, 1993 AND SEPTEMBER 11, 2001.

  • RESPECT THIS PLACE MADE SACRED THROUGH TRAGIC LOSS.

  • RECOGNIZE THE ENDURANCE OF THOSE WHO SURVIVED, THE COURAGE OF THOSE WHO RISKED THEIR LIVES TO SAVE OTHERS, AND THE COMPASSION OF ALL WHO SUPPORTED US IN OUR DARKEST HOURS.

  • MAY THE LIVES REMEMBERED, THE DEEDS RECOGNIZED, AND THE SPIRIT REAWAKENED BE ETERNAL BEACONS, WHICH REAFFIRM RESPECT FOR LIFE, STRENGTHEN OUR RESOLVE TO PRESERVE FREEDOM, AND INSPIRE AN END TO HATRED, IGNORANCE AND INTOLERANCE.
