1 W.T.C. is a beautiful building, but the 1776' roof height would have been better. The U.S. will eventually come up with something taller (some proposals are already out there). Anyway, let's keep this thread about the W.T.C. progress

Entitled? You can huff and puff all you want, but it's not going to go any faster. Sorry.

New World Trade Center skyscraper becomes world's most expensive new office tower

Published January 30, 2012
| The Wall Street Journal

"The price tag for One World Trade Center, the signature skyscraper under construction at Ground Zero in New York, has risen to more than $3.8 billion, making it by far the world's most expensive new office tower, according to people familiar with the matter.
The new figure, up $700 million from the latest public estimate, marks another twist in the rebuilding of the site of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The process has been marked by thorny political challenges and ever-lengthening construction delays..."

"...Driving the latest increase: construction-cost overruns and a decision by the Port Authority to now include leasing expenses in its public estimates. Those leasing costs are higher than the Port Authority had privately anticipated, people familiar with the matter said. The higher number is expected to be released as early as this week in an audit by the agency..."

People in the New York area who have to pay obscene bridge and tunnel tolls to finance this may think differently.

These cost over runs are unacceptable. Top management of the project should be removed as should some PA officials.

They should have cut down the cost so maybe this tower would have risen faster.

I think they have to prove their superiority because there is no such think as "been there done that"
