11/1/12: WFC Complex Open!
Brookfield Office Properties completed physical evaluations of its office buildings in New York as a result of Hurricane Sandy. Preliminary reports indicate water, window and other associated collateral damage are minimal at most of Brookfield’s Manhattan buildings.
The World Financial Center, the company’s largest asset in Manhattan suffered limited collateral damage from the storm. In anticipation of the storm, all properties were powered down. Power has been restored in all of Brookfield’s office towers at the complex which was recently renamed Brookfield Place.
The retail areas at the center have also been reopened and the Winter Garden is fully operational. The company invites workers, residents and visitors in Lower Manhattan to utilize the shops and common public areas as other retailers in the area remain closed.
