Here is some info about it.. but I think nothing is decided yet..

Two important passages:

"A subcommittee of the Lower Manhattan Development Corp. this week recommended funneling $100 million in federal grant money into a fund for the arts center, to be located just east of the 1,776-foot-high Tower 1. It is the agency’s largest funding authorization to date for the arts center’s construction, projected to cost roughly $450 million."

"Despite the decision, Menin said that she intends to continue advocating for the theater project to be moved to 130 Liberty St., where she still maintains that it could be built sooner and cheaper. An LMDC feasibility study indicated that building the theater on the 130 Liberty St. would cost approximately $125 million less than its current site, where it cannot be built until the transportation hub is finished in 2014."

ARCHITECT'S NEWSPAPER
By Tom Stoelker



AERIAL VIEW OF THE PLANNED ST. NICHOLAS GREEK ORTHODOX CHURCH AT THE WORLD TRADE CENTER.
COURTESY KOUTSOMITIS ARCHITECTS

Under significant pressure from Governor Cuomo, the Port Authority will allow St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church to rebuild their destroyed church on a World Trade Center site. An earlier deal had the state giving the church $20 million to rebuild while the Port invested $40 million in a blast-proof platform for the building over a new vehicle security center beneath. That deal moved the church up the street from their old location at 155 Cedar Street and onto a 4,100 square foot site at the corner of Greenwich and Liberty streets. Under the new agreement the church will stay on Liberty Street and the Port will build a $25 million platform, with the church raising its own funds to rebuild.

From 2003 to 2008, the church worked with the Port to develop the Liberty Street site. But as the church’s ambitions grew from the original 1,200-square-foot chapel to a community center of more than 6,000 square feet, the Port pulled out. The church in turn forced the agency’s hand with a lawsuit that was just about to go to court when the governor stepped in.

For their part, church officials say they were more than cooperative all along. “Whenever they asked us to move we moved,” said Nicholas Koutsomitis, architect for the proposed church. “We always looked at the bigger picture, we did that for eight years.”

Unlike the proposal for a mosque a block away, there remains substantial support for the church to rebuild on the WTC site. “I think that the issue with the mosque in a way saved the church from eminent domain,” said Koutsomitis. Donations to rebuild began pouring in immediately after the attacks. Despite the importance of the overarching World Trade project, using eminent domain to remove the tiny church with its congregation of 70 families probably wouldn’t have played out well in the press.

Father Mark Arey said there are two words to describe the new deal. “Win, win!” he exclaimed. Arey, the spokesperson for the Greek Archdiocese in America, said the agreement signed in Governor Cuomo’s Manhattan office between archdiocesan council vice-chair Michael Jaharis and the Port Authority's soon-to-be-departing-director Chris Ward would not cause the state financial hardship or delay construction.

Throughout the planning and the lawsuit Koutsomitis said his architecture office acted as a clearinghouse for all aspects of the negotiations. “It’s very rare, but it’s a special relationship with the client group,” explained Koutsomitis of the combination design, legal, and financial team.

Currently there is no final design, the architect said, but it will be clearly identified as an Eastern Orthodox church. While the old St. Nicholas contrasted with Yamasaki’s twin towers, the new church will play off the new buildings, the architect said, describing the new structure as a transparent “cube that’s floating on air.” If the current schedule holds, the church could open its doors by 2014.

WTC memorial light columns manufactured in Ulster County



The 90 light columns installed as part of the World Trade Center Memorial were manufactured in Highland by Selux Corporation. The company was commissioned to build the 16 foot tall structures that each has a four foot tall, eight inch square light fixture on top.

Selux manager Hansi Mueller said the columns were designed to resemble the shape of the Twin Towers.

“They are fluted as the World Trade Towers were. I think they provide a very pleasant atmosphere and light to the site,” she said.

The landscape architect, Peter Walker, and the architectural lighting designer, Paul Marantz, chose to work with Selux to create the lighting for the Memorial.

9/11 Memorial reaches visitor milestone

BY ALINE REYNOLDS

The National Sept. 11 Memorial and Museum reached a milestone this week, boasting half a million visitors from more than 100 countries worldwide since its grand opening just over two months ago.

While many Downtown residents feel proud to have an international landmark in their backyard, many of them fear of ever-increasing vehicle and pedestrian traffic on the already jam-packed streets of Lower Manhattan.

James Connors, executive vice president of operations at the 9/11 Memorial, assured members of Community Board 1’s World Trade Center Redevelopment Committee that the organization is making efforts to minimize congestion resulting from the influx of tourists to the site.

More than 90 percent of 9/11 Memorial visitors are arriving as individuals or families as opposed to groups, whose visits by bus can lead to added congestion Downtown, according to Connors.

“Less than 2.5 percent are coming via charter [bus], translating to about four charter buses a day for Memorial-specific purposes,” Connors told the committee. Those that do come via bus often arrive during off-peak hours, he said.

At the same time, the Memorial staff is ramping up its reservations and queuing system with the goal of achieving maximum occupancy at the plaza, or 1500 visitors. The current system only permits up to 800 visitors on the site at a given time.

Staff has already improved the reservations policy so people can reserve same-day visits to the Memorial, in addition to visits for a week, a month or six months ahead of time. “It really made a big difference in making it easier for people to make [reservations] who don’t plan well in advance,” said Connors.
