PLANS ARE TABLED FOR TRADE CENTER

November 10, 1946 ·

The only plan that has been worked out in detail for a World Trade Center in New York City was tabled last week by the board of directors of the corporation appointed last year by Governor Dewey to study what steps should be taken in establishing the project. It is the only plan the corportion has had under consideration and a final report on their findings must be made on or before Jan. 1.

The plan calls for twenty-one buildings covering ten blocks in the heart of New York City. The buildings, which are functionally designed to meet requirements of world buyers and sellers in terms of display space and commercial facilities, are tentatively planned for an unannounced site that would not interfere with north or south arteries. The layout includes extensive subterranean parking lots.

Buildings cover agriculture products, forestry, electronics, aviation, textiles, South America, a Symphony Hall, home appliances, Europe, industrial arts, transportation, administration, a World Trade Shrine, machinery and tools, medicine and chemistry, metallurgy, manufacturing, motion pictures, plastics, electrical goods, and automobiles.
