Lets not give $100B more to the city that sponsored the current financial panic and sold many of the credit default swaps AIG bought. Besides, what unemployed people do you think are going to fill the office space in NY?

Yeah it's called a joke and I didn't say give it to wall street did I. And NYC the life blood of the country don't give us the money and see what happens lol. And I don't know to many people in NYC who don't have jobs. And if they're unemployed they've just been fired from one of the big banks or they never work to began with.

The price of living has go up but the unemployment rate is about the same.
I don't know what makes people think we got a bunch of homeless, jobless
people running around the city. A bunch of rich fat cats go broke and everybody goes crazy.

Speaking of money... This is from the Port Authority contracts link that Zensteeldude posted back here. Just one example of where the money goes...

Contracting activity : Fountain plumbing : 4J's Associates LLC : $41,425,000 : contract executed 29 Jan 2009

This is not the cost of the fountain(s), this is the just the plumbing contract. Nothing comes cheap on projects of this scale.

PORT AUTHORITY AND VANTONE INDUSTRIAL SIGN FIRST LEASE FOR ONE WORLD TRADE CENTER (THE FREEDOM TOWER)
The China Center Will Occupy Nearly 200,000 Square Feet in New York’s Tallest Skyscraper to Encourage and Facilitate Business Between Two Global Finanical Centers

March 26, 2009

Representatives of The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and Vantone Industrial Co., Ltd., today signed a lease that will create the China Center, a unique 190,810-square-foot business and cultural facility, to be located on portions of the 64th floor and the entire 65th through 69th floors of One World Trade Center (the Freedom Tower).

Immediately following the lease signing, China Center provided the Port Authority with a $10 million letter of credit.

The lease is for 20 years and nine months, commencing when the building is completed in late 2013. Rents will start at $80 per square foot and escalate in subsequent years. China Center also will have the right to lease up to two additional contiguous floors under the same lease terms, an option that expires at the end of 2009.

...The Port Authority also has commitments for more than a million square feet of leased office space in One World Trade Center from the U.S. General Services Administration and the New York State Office of General Services. Leases for these two public agencies are being finalized. These commitments, coupled with the China Center lease, represent nearly 50 percent of the total office space in the building.

...Key components of the China Center will include an Executive Business Club offering membership opportunities and extensive benefits; a conference center providing flexible, high-tech exhibition and conference facilities for corporate meetings and events; and first-class office space offering a variety of flexible layouts and options designed to enhance business operations and networking opportunities for a variety of small to mid-sized Chinese businesses.

Before anyone asks or comments, the cost of fitting out is paid by the tenant. In plain language, all those pretty renderings of the beautiful office space is NOT part of the cost of the building, if Vantone Industrial Co., Ltd wants it that way, they gota cough up the dough.

I swear one of those renderings is actually a retouched pic taken inside #7.

Officially, the name Freedom Tower never existed, but it isn't going anywhere because it's already stuck to 1WTC.

Freedom Tower name changed to One World Trade Center

The Freedom Tower is out. One World Trade Center is in.

The Port Authority, the agency that owns the building at Ground Zero, said Thursday that the signature skyscraper replacing the Twin Towers destroyed on Sept. 11, 2001, will be more commonly known as One World Trade Center.

The reason for the name swapping? One World Trade Center is more marketable, said Steve Sigmund, a spokesman for the Port Authority.

"We believe there's been a good response in the marketplace toward it," Sigmund said Thursday.

The 102-story building, under construction at the 16-acre site, was named the Freedom Tower in the first Ground Zero master plan. At the time, officials said the tallest, most symbolic of five planned towers at the site would demonstrate the nation's triumph over terrorism.

In the end, the tower's address, One World Trade Center, is the one that is easier for people to identify with, said Anthony Coscia, Port Authority chairman.

On Wednesday, the agency announced that the first commercial tenant, a Chinese real estate company, has signed a lease for space in the building. The Beijing Vantone Industrial Company has agreed to lease five floors - 64 through 69 - for nearly 21 years.

The office tower is scheduled to be completed in late 2013.

Friday, the Tribute WTC Visitor Center is planning to reach a milestone by welcoming its 1-millionth visitor.

The person who helps the center reach that mark will be presented with a plaque honoring all those who have come there to learn about the 2001 terror attacks against the World Trade Center, said Ben Urizar, a center spokesman.

The tribute center at 120 Liberty St., which opened in 2006, is expected to hit the milestone before 10 a.m., when a news conference is planned.

Mods should change title to "1 World Trade Center"
