Cortlandt Way, an above-ground shopping strip, was approved for the World Trade Center. The Observer reports the new shops will stretch between Tower 3 and Tower 4, and will include a few below ground shops as well.
The article explains: "Today, retail may be the least obvious part of the redevelopment of Ground Zero, as the memorial bustles with people, the museum awaits completion and two of the four new towers have already taken their place on the skyline. But shopping will still be an important part of the new World Trade Center, just as it was with the old one." In total, there will be 16,000 new square feet of retail added.
