250 Vesey Street, formerly Four World Financial Center, is a part of the Brookfield Place complex in Lower Manhattan, which houses the financial offices of Merrill Lynch.

Rising 34 floors and 500 feet (150 m), and situated between the Hudson River and the World Trade Center site, Four World Financial Center is located in the heart of the Financial District. After the September 11, 2001 attacks, the building sustained major damage to its roof, however the general damage to the building was nowhere near as great as the other three towers.

On October 23, 2001, about two dozen senior executives of Merrill Lynch began returning to their offices on a limited number of floors within the building, making it the first tower in the four-tower complex to be reoccupied after the attacks.[1]

The structure was renamed 250 Vesey Street when the complex became Brookfield Place in 2014.[2]
