It's going to be a residential tower. I don't remember the name of it or how tall it will be, but some of our other members have posted details and pics of it in the past.

Come to think of it, whoever moves into that building is going to be miserable for their first few years, since construction on Tower 5 is right across the street and will probably begin around the same time this building opens. Yikes.

David Shuster is at it again. On tonight's show, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, he's going to be interviewing the Twin Towers II creator Ken Gardner. In the intro for the segment, they just talked about the bumbling delays at Ground Zero and showed video footage of an empty Ground Zero... from like 2005! Why do they do this? Ground Zero looks nothing like it did in 2005. They are intentionally trying to decieve their audience into believing that no progress has been made at Ground Zero by showing footage from years and years ago.

At least, the intro for the segment did. I'll write again once they show the actual piece. Tune in if you're reading this around, ah, 6:05 eastern time. (The show started at 6.)

Well that is not quite true, because of all the delays and all the "problems" with the design. The project is already way over budget. And the Silverstien part is "Only" ALL the towers!

Tower One is by the Port Authority, not Silverstein. That's the entire point.

that is washington st. Its is a residentail building. I was the surveyor there for the foundation about 4 years ago. The job has been going for so long. The building department keeps shutting down the project. They have had alot of difficulties after the fire at the deutsche bank.

The foundation was very intresting. If you can look up the project we had to freeze the ground to dig for the elevator pit, and not vibrate the adjacent building. The building next to it is leaning more than 13 inches.

Point being? Okay, so Silver does not own 1WTC. He stil owns all the other buildings, and the problem is the delay, every day a huge fine is added to Silver. Because Port A, can't start the work on the Subway hub, because Silver is not ready yet. And Port A, is thinking about stepping in, and taking over the whole project. So it doesn't get more delayed.. And we are in a global financial-crisis and the project is already 3 billon over budget, don't tell me that doesn't scare the new investors.

Freedom Rings Up! First Lease at World Trade Center Site

By Eliot Brown
March 24, 2009

The first office lease in the rebuilt World Trade Center is expected to be signed on Thursday, according to officials and others familiar with plans, as the China-based Beijing Vantone Real Estate Company has completed negotiations to take about 190,000 square feet of space in the Freedom Tower.

The Port Authority, which is developing the Freedom Tower, is slated to approve the deal at its Thursday board meeting, allowing the lease to be signed, those familiar with discussions said. Vantone, which signed a letter of intent to take space with the Port Authority in June, plans to create something of a portal for Chinese and American companies doing business with each other—dubbed “China Center”—in the 102-story tower that is scheduled for completion in 2013.

Should the lease indeed be signed, it would put an end to years of flirtations with Lower Manhattan and the World Trade Center by Vantone. The firm has nearly had deals at two other downtown locations, Larry Silverstein’s 7 World Trade Center and L&L’s 195 Broadway, both of which fell apart late in the negotiating process.

The deal is for five full floors of the tower and the terms of the deal are said to be similar to what was outlined in June. Those terms called for an approximately 23-year lease with rents that start at around $80 a square foot.

In January, the Port Authority transferred rent incentives once intended for a JPMorgan Chase tower downtown to the Freedom Tower, perhaps a sign that Vantone will benefit from the subsidies, valued at $5 a square foot. The Partnership for New York City has also committed money for the project.

A spokesman for the Port Authority, Stephen Sigmund, said in a statement that the agency is “continuing to work to turn the term sheet into the first signed lease for a private tenant in the building.”

Brokerage Jones Lang LaSalle, led by Peter Riguardi, represents Vantone and advises the Port Authority.

Between the federal, city and state governments, more than 2.3 million square feet has been committed at the four-tower World Trade Center complex, though leases have not yet been signed. That leaves more than 7 million square feet completely unaccounted for, including two entire planned buildings, Mr. Silverstein’s Towers 2 and 3, with no prospective tenants. Mr. Silverstein and the Port Authority are in discussions on how to adjust his lease and allow for him to build some of his towers amid the recession.

I dont want to cause any controversy but a big reason the project is delayed is because of the Port Authority.

That's great news. 190k sq ft is an impressive sized lease. I'm sure we'll be seeing more signings in the future.
