September 11 Memorial & Museum

Lendlease was selected to provide both core and shell and fit out for the National September 11 Memorial and Museum at the World Trade Center. Lendlease was one of the first responders after the attacks of September 11, 2001 and was honored to return to the site in an effort to bring closure through the construction of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. This hallowed landmark bears comparison to the Pearl Harbor Memorial, World War II Memorial, Iwo Jima Monument, and the Korean and Vietnam War Memorials.
