Using his experience in construction and design, Dick McCormack began testing concepts to succeed the original World Trade Center campus in New York City. The San Diego television and print media found his story inspirational and wanted to share it with our local community.

Dick McCormack had a dream. One man. A leader. An American Patriot. McCormack worked day and night to have his voice heard. He inspired us. He understood how the people would work together for the future of the World Trade Center Site. To prepare the presentations for Mr. McCormack to submit to the Port of New York, AutoCAD, Photoshop, Revit and 3dsMax were used.

For your viewing and reading pleasure, we have included a PDF copy of some of his presentation materials to people in New York. We have also included web-friendly images and media coverage of Dick's presentation, including a replay of the Channel 10 News broadcast which launched Dick McCormack on his voyage to New York.

. The story behind the genesis of Freedom Plaza is told in this PDF file.
Five identical buildings arranged in a star pattern which preserves the footprints of WTC-1 and WTC-2.
. The promenade, which continues along West Street, will be home to one tree for each person who perished.
. The orientation of the five structures permits Greenwich Street to run through the entire site.
. The architecture incorporates some newer design elements of New York's financial district while using both contemporary and historic finish materials.
The buildings will be connected by a network of skywalks to improve planning efforts for inter-building foot traffic, fire fighting and evacuation.
. A ground-supported communications tower extends upwards 1776 feet, making it the tallest structure in the United States.
. The mast will be lighted 364 days per year, darkened only on September 11. On that day, the blue lights commemorating the original WTC-1 and WTC-2 sites will be lit.
. The Star and The Spire -- National Symbols viewed from the Brooklyn Bridge.
