An OCULUS is born ………at ground zero.

The OCULUS.….in front of the new World Trade Center………..a white marble mecca for opulent shopping.  Herme, Gucci, Pucci and one hundred other stores.  You can easily drop $250,000 or more……and have fun doing it.

Designed by Santiago Calatrava.…..the Spanish architect.

The skylight is retractable……..and does open up to let the open sky show through.

It looks like a enormous ice skating rink…………but it just 300,000 feet of white Lassa Italian marble…..at a cost of $400 per sq. foot……….and it is a crowd pleaser!
