Next month, the September 11 Family Room will shutter its 20th-floor space at One Liberty Plaza, a 2.3 million-square-foot Lower Manhattan tower. The closing coincides with the opening of National September 11 Memorial Museum on May 21. The family room space featured children’s toys, sofas and a variety of items from relatives of victims. Soon it will revert back to office space in need of a tenant.

Last year, Transatlantic Reinsurance Company signed a 15-year lease for 134,000 square feet across three floors at the building, as previously reported. [WSJ]Mark Maurer
