On the topic of the WTC Campus Security Plan...

Quote:
Construction of the Proposed Action is expected to commence in 2013. With or without the Proposed Action, it is unlikely that the planned street network within the WTC Campus would be completely constructed and accessible prior to 2019. As such, 2019 has been selected as the analysis year for the environmental analyses in the EIS.

Once more, incompetent leaders in both the private and public sectors. It won't be long until the whole complex is announced for completion around 2050. If so, NYC and maybe anywhere else in the country can kiss all Olympic bids goodbye.

55 percent of 1 World Trade Center leased:
http://www.newsday.com/business/55-p...1.5255615?qr=1

"The iconic new 1 World Trade Center will fill much more floor space than the 55 percent currently leased 18 months before its expected completion, according to the tower's developers and urban planning experts."

"In fact, prospective tenants are eagerly waiting to look at the actual space once construction is finished before making a deal"

"completion of other projects in the area, such as the Fulton Street transit hub, will be a major incentive for companies"

"As we get closer to 18 months from now we'll see a lot more leases,"



Experts, developers say WTC tenants will come:
http://www.amny.com/urbanite-1.81203...come-1.5255542

"The first four tenants at 1 World Trade Center

So far, 1 World Trade Center has 55% of its space leased out. Here is some info on its tenants.

Condé Nast: The magazine publisher signed on to the building in 2011 and is currently its biggest tenant. The company will lease 1.2 million square feet for 25 years and move 5,000 employees to the building.

U.S. Government: The U.S. General Services Administration signed a 20-year lease last year for six floors in the building.

Vantone China Center: A Chinese investment group was the first to sign a lease in the skyscraper in 2008. The group will create a chamber of commerce and cultural center that will take up six floors.

Legends Hospitality Group: The sports and entertainment company that the Yankees co-own will manage the tower’s observation deck. (Ivan Pereira)"

I hate to say it, but it looks like many of us could be dead before the WTC complex is completed. Sigh...

Nope, unless you plan on dying within the next 5 years.

I don't think I will be dead (one never knows) but ... when it is completed I will be retired and my first social security checks will be coming in.

5 years=wishful thinking! I'm guessing (not a prediction, mind you) that 2WTC won't even be started by then, and maybe 3 might be close to completion.

Why cant they just come out and tell us when the complex will be done. Its completely bizarre the whole situation a mean what about people who are really wanting to see and visit this complex in their lifetime? Seriously this is pathetic, I understand the whole tenant situation but come on didn't the towers sit empty?

First of all, congrats to NY and the USA for the almost completed One World Trade Center! Can't wait to see WTC 2 (also iconic in height) and WTC 3 rise above lower manhattan!

Maybe it has already been posted, I don't know. A little remembrance/tribute to the old twins.
