The highly controversial ‘Ground Zero Islamic Center’ project that was shelved after protests looks set to be replaced by a 16,000-square-foot Islamic cultural center and prayer space set to be built in the same location in Manhattan.
Cordoba House was planned to be a 13-story Islamic community center in Lower Manhattan to replace a building that was damaged during the 9/11 attacks by plane parts. The plans for the Islamic center included an enormous “prayer space” to cater to the needs of 2,000 Muslims at a time.
Following controversy (deemed “manufactured” by some) and opposition from 9/11 families, the project was abandoned, but an Islamic cultural museum with a Muslim “prayer space” was subsequently built and recently completed.
New York YIMBY reports, “Construction has also yet to begin on 51 Park Place, which is slated to become a 71-foot-tall, 16,000-square-foot Islamic cultural center.”
A completion date has not been announced, but sometime next year seems likely.
