“We are delighted to welcome Blue Wolf to 3 WTC,” said Jeremy Moss, Executive Vice President of Leasing at Silverstein Properties. “Downtown is home to the world’s leading financial institutions, including Goldman Sachs, American Express and Citibank. It is also close to the where New York City’s young creative talent lives, which is why firms like Blue Wolf, Hudson River Trading and IEX have moved to the World Trade Center.”
