The World Trade Center Performing Arts Center (PAC) is a planned 1,000-seat performing arts center at the northeast corner of the World Trade Center site at the intersection of Fulton and Greenwich Streets in Manhattan.[1] As of 2014, plans for the construction of the PAC are stalled over financing and design, although construction is also hindered by the presence of the temporary World Trade Center PATH subway station entrance.[2][3][4]

The Lower Manhattan Development Corporation (LMDC) announced on October 12, 2004 that Gehry Partners LLP and Snøhetta, an architectural firm from Norway, would design the PAC.[5][6][7] Gehry's performing arts complex will house the Joyce Theater, as the Signature Theater Company dropped out due to space constraints and cost limitations.[7]
