More than 100 retail stores, ranging from the Apple Store to Eataly will officially open today at the 350,000 square-foot World Trade Center shopping mall today.

The mall, which will be open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sundays, is designed for maximum ease of use for the hundreds of thousands of commuters who pass through the transit hub every day.

The focal point of the subterranean shopping mall is the 160-foot-tall "Oculus," a design that's meant to evoke the image of a dove being released from a child's hands. The Oculus includes 18-inch glass panels that will open on Sept. 11. Read the full article for more preview pictures of the grand opening.
