Just days before the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, officials unveiled renderings for one of the last-remaining structures to be built at the World Trade Center redevelopment.

Designed by Brooklyn-based firm REX, the long-delayed Ronald O. Perelman Performing Arts Center will take shape in the form of a giant glass cube encased in translucent marble. In all, the 90,000-square-foot venue will have three auditoria, as well as a cafe and public space in the lobby.

It was also revealed that Barbra Streisand will be the center’s chairperson.

“The performing arts connect us all and are such a vital part of New York City,” Streisand said in a statement. “The Perelman Center will vibrate with theater, music, dance, and film and bring life to this hallowed ground.” 

The Perelman is estimated to cost $243 million, and is due to open in 2020.
