NEW YORK (AP) — The developer of a $1.4 billion shopping mall at the World Trade Center says a majority of the 150 retailers that will fill the complex have committed to sign on.

Westfield Group tells the Wall Street Journal 80 percent of the retail brands have already signed leases or have leases out for signing.

Its co-Chief Executive Peter Lowy says it could have leased the 365,000-square-foot space “three or four times over.”

The complex is slated to open next year. It’s being built at the site’s new Santiago Calatrava-designed transportation hub.

More than 200,000 daily commuters and tourists are expected to pass through there.

Among the retail brands already signed on are designer-shoe maker Stuart Weitzman. British men’s shirt-maker Turnbull & Asser also has signed a lease.
