SILVERSTEIN WOOS FIRST BIG TENANT FOR 7 WTC

By LOIS WEISS and TOM TOPOUSIS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
October 26, 2005 -- Amid blistering criticism from Mayor Bloomberg over the slow pace of construction at Ground Zero, developer Larry Silverstein is about to sign a deal to bring a major tenant to his nearly complete tower at 7 World Trade Center.

The New York Academy of Sciences is negotiating a lease for 40,000 square feet of space in the ultra-modern tower that sits on the north side of Vesey Street, overlooking the pit at Ground Zero.

Sources said the scientific academy has a "term sheet" for a 10-year lease for the full 40th floor in the new building, set to open next year.

An academy spokesperson said the group has not seen a lease but is talking with Silverstein about it.

The academy was founded downtown in 1817 and would "like to bring down thousands of young scientists to our conferences."

The academy would be only the second major tenant lined up for the glass-walled skyscraper, with 1.7 million square feet of space.

A lease for 20,000 square feet with an American Express spin-off, Ameriprise Financial, is expected to be signed soon.

As the leaseholder for the World Trade Center site, Silverstein is under pressure to find tenants and show there is a market for office space at Ground Zero, which is slated to host five more office buildings.

Silverstein has so far filled only a small fraction of 7 World Trade Center and has yet to line up any prospects for the Freedom Tower, prompting Bloomberg to push for his removal and call for more residential development.

"It is worrisome that he hasn't rented 7 [WTC] yet. We've given him the incentives he said he needed and still, as far as I know, no tenants — 20,000 square feet out a 1.7 million," Bloomberg told The Post's editorial board this week.

A spokesman for Silverstein declined to comment on the talks.

Thanks

I love this building... so simple and powerful!

Anyway, what happened to that cross that stood next to the ground zero site? The one that was made from 2 steel beams left from the original twin towers... Did they remove that? I thought that was beautiful, but I guess if people were complaining about it it's understandable that they took it down. Did they trash it though? I hope not...

No no no, they've not even started working on that yet- too much political crap involved. This is replacing the old 7 WTC that was also destroyed on 9/11,

The base looks awsome, very original.


Facade close-up looks somewhat like Jean Nouvel's The Dentsu HQ in Shiodome, Tokyo.

I agree. There is something settling about it even though it is simple.

Exactly.. it's very comforting... I just love it.

Does anyone know what happened to that steel beam cross that stood around this area? Is that still there?

By the way I love how people say that this base is "bold" then the freedom tower's base is terrible, yet they are the exact same...

Nice updates. I'm a little worried, though, that there are no major tenants signing on.

It's the definition of undescribable beauty.
