If the base cladding is delayed, they might need to do something to avoid leaving things sitting open to the elements for another year. Keep the steel from rusting or get some protection for interior work or something.

"I know this is a silly question, but will there be an underground concourse between WTC1 and the mall/transportation hub?
If so, where exactly will it be?"

Nice animation. The last part through the tunnel is under Fulton St., right past WTC1. I'd assume there'd be access directly from the tower.

Silverstein: WTC Will Be The New Rockefeller Center



NEW YORK CITY-After years of setbacks, construction at the World Trade Center site is advancing--but the best is yet to come, explained Larry Silverstein, president and CEO of Silverstein Properties, at the Real Estate Lenders Association’s (RELA) final breakfast of their membership year at Seven World Trade Center this morning. “I don’t think most people are going to have a clue about what’s to come, and when it does, you are going to see a transformation here overnight,” Silverstein said. “The impact and transformation will be similar to what Rockefeller Center did in 1930 for Manhattan’s West Side.”

As the neighborhood comes back, the $20 billion redevelopment of the 16-acre site has also spurred development around it, including the MTA’s new Fulton Street Transit Center, the $4 billion revamped PATH terminal, the 190-key Four Seasons Downtown Hotel and new multifamily structures sprouting up in nearby TriBeCa and Battery Park City. “The residential growth of this location is nothing short of phenomenal,” Silverstein said, describing Lower Manhattan as an emerging 24/7, live/work community, with more than 60,000 families in the area. “It is the total opposite of what everybody anticipated after 9/11. People have decided to move in, and one of the reasons it is as attractive as it is, is because you have a total coming together of 13 mass transit lines.”

But Silverstein also recalled the state of the neighborhood following the 9/11 attack, which sent a shockwave throughout the city and the nation as a whole. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey first made the World Trade Center site and utilities available again in April 2002, but Silverstein explained he was anxious to start rebuilding immediately. “We needed desperately to show some activity down here,” Silverstein said. The first designs were drafted in late 2001. “We had to start some kind of rebuilding process. We had to take people who were totally demoralized back into a positive state.”

And though initially criticized by Mayor Michael Bloomberg for charging $50 per square foot rents at the 52-story Seven World Trade Center, Silverstein said he wouldn’t have it any other way. “I said, Mr. Mayor, this is my money, not public money,” he said. “I am doing what I think is right, I am doing that today, and I will believe I will produce a successful result.”

Subsequently, Seven World Trade got its first anchor tenant when Moody’s Corp. signed a lease for the 11th to 28th floors in the building, which opened in May 2006. As a result, other tenants followed, including Ameriprise Financial, the New York Academy of Science and Mansueto Ventures LLC. Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, it became the first LEED certified building in New York City.

And momentum is continuing to build. GlobeSt.com asked Silverstein if the signing of Conde Nast’s one-million-square-foot lease at One World Trade Center could positively affect leasing at Three World Trade and Four World Trade. He responded that he anticipates lots of interest, though he did not disclose any potential tenants for Towers 3 or 4. Though unconfirmed, UBS AG is considering a move here, sources said.

“I think a corporation of that quality taking a million square feet opened everybody’s eyes and they said, ‘Oh my god, what is going on?’” he said. “That had incredible significance. In terms of leasing activity, it has been nothing short of phenomenal.”

It's great that the tower has grown again. At the next jump, the top will be a perfect octagon!

Yes, the photographer used Photomatix to get an HDR.

That new steel looks all over the place. I'm sure it will be fine when it's all connected, just wondered why it should look so haphazard now.

Optical illusion + the building does not just go straight up. It tappers inwards. The beams are GPS positioned. They are right where they should be!

Yes, I'm sure you're right. Though it would be funny to think that the crane driver was a bit pizzed from the night before.

Citigroup Said to Explore Taking Offices at Manhattan’s World Trade Center

Quote:
Citigroup Inc. is considering leasing offices at the World Trade Center site in lower Manhattan, two people with knowledge of the discussions said.
The third-biggest U.S. lender is exploring a variety of options and hasn’t decided which building it is interested in, said one of the people, who asked not to be identified because the talks are private. Four towers are in progress, including 1 World Trade Center, slated to be the western hemisphere’s tallest building upon its completion in 2013.
A Citigroup lease would be another victory for the trade center redevelopment, stalled for years because of indecision on its design, infighting among stakeholders and a lack of financing and tenant interest after the financial meltdown. Last month, Conde Nast Publications Inc. agreed to rent about 1 million square feet (93,000 square meters) at 1 World Trade, and UBS AG may move staff to 3 World Trade Center from Stamford, Connecticut, people familiar with the matter said.
“You can’t compare a brand-new building for efficiencies, systems, amenities, the way you can utilize space, versus an older one,” said Alan Desino, executive managing director at the New York offices of Colliers International, a commercial- property brokerage. “Pricing downtown is still very attractive, you can lock in 20-plus years in a brand-new building. That’s why you’re seeing a lot of the seemingly well-entrenched really wondering if they’re in the best situation.”
Early Stages
Citigroup, which has headquarters at 399 Park Ave. in midtown Manhattan, is in the early stages of studying its options, the people with knowledge of the talks said.
The bank also occupies offices at 601 Lexington Ave., a 59- story Midtown skyscraper known until 2009 as Citigroup Center. Both buildings are owned by Boston Properties Inc. (BXP), the biggest U.S. office real estate investment trust. Arista Joyner, a Boston Properties spokeswoman, declined to comment.
“Although we are always in touch with the real estate community about space that is coming on the market over the next few years, we have no plans to change our footprint in New York City,” Shannon Bell, a Citigroup spokeswoman, said in a telephone interview.
Queens, Tribeca
Citigroup’s offices tend to be close to stations along New York’s E subway line. Besides the two Midtown buildings, they include 1 Court Square, the city’s tallest tower outside Manhattan, in the Long Island City section of Queens, and 388 and 390 Greenwich St. in Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood, formerly headquarters of the Travelers Group insurance unit and now a trading complex.
The World Trade Center site is the southern terminus of the E line, which runs to Jamaica Center in central Queens.
SL Green Realty Corp. (SLG), Manhattan’s biggest office landlord, owns the Greenwich Street buildings as well as 1 Court Square. Rick Matthews, an SL Green spokesman, declined to comment.
The Durst Organization, which is responsible for leasing 1 World Trade, is in talks with companies whose space needs “are in excess of what we have available,” said Tara Stacom, a broker with Cushman & Wakefield Inc. who represents the developer. She declined to comment on whether they’re having discussions with Citigroup.

One World Trade
“One World Trade Center is a building of great interest to a lot of people, as it was, quite frankly, even before the deal with Conde Nast closed,” she said. “The entire site will surprise a lot of people come the end of this year in terms of the announcements, the levels and the number of deals that will be announced.”
About 1.2 million of the tower’s 3 million square feet are leased, Stacom said, including an earlier deal with Beijing Vantone Real Estate Co., a Chinese property firm. Tentative commitments from federal and New York State governments to take another 1 million square feet are flexible enough to allow additional private leasing, she said.
In November, Durst chairman Douglas Durst said the state may not take the space, given its budget problems.
Durst is the equity partner of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which owns the 16-acre site and is developing 1 World Trade. Silverstein Properties Inc. is building two towers, 3 and 4 World Trade Center, and has started foundation work on a third, 2 World Trade, under a lease from the Port Authority.
Dara McQuillan, a Silverstein spokesman, declined to comment.
