The World Trade Center is among several sites competing for Amazon’s second headquarters.

The city’s received more than two dozen proposals to vie for the company, which is looking for at least 500,000 square feet by 2019 and as much as 8 million square feet by over the next 10 years, Politico reported. Larry Silverstein, the Downtown Alliance and the Durst Organization submitted the plan for the city.

The World Trade Center has roughly 6.8 million square feet of office space available. Silverstein is still searching for an anchor tenant for the Bjarke Ingels-designed 2 World Trade Center, which would span 2.8 million square feet. There’s 700,000 to 800,000 square feet available at One World Trade Center, 1.8 million at 3 World Trade Center and another 1.5 million square feet at the former Deutsche Bank site, which hasn’t been built yet.

On WNYC’s “The Brian Lehrer Show” Thursday morning, Deputy Mayor Alicia Glenn asserted that the city wouldn’t offer major subsidies to woo Amazon. Though some have been skeptical about New York’s chances in the competition, the deputy mayor seemed confident.

“I suspect we’ll make it to the next round because we’re New York,” she said. [Politico]Kathryn Brenzel
