The World Financial Center is a complex of office buildings located in Battery Park City in Lower Manhattan in New York City. It is located near the World Trade Center. It is home to the offices of a number of companies such as Merrill Lynch, American Express, Brookfield Office Properties, and others.[1] It was opened in 1988. It was designed by César Pelli.

The complex was very badly damaged in the September 11 attacks. It had to be closed for several months while repairs were being done.

The complex will be renamed to "Brookfield Place" in 2013.[2]
