I'll be letting your superiors know about this. Your attitude stinks.

I think you owe the people of this forum an apology.
Seriously. I've never seen a Mod drop such vehement hate so casually before.

lol, people have such a hard time understanding that everything on this site will be built eventually. the question is when and in what form. it won't be a pit forever.

At least it's getting built, though. Imo, it's my favorite building of the site. Anyway, back on topic, it seems like the diamond shape is beginning to be shown in the steel. Pretty cool stuff.

Also, apparently this keeps forcing me to go here? o_O I'm responding to HK's post down below. derp.

Yes, it's all the Port Authority's fault that Silverstein couldn't raise the money to finance private office towers that the lower Manhattan commercial real estate market doesn't want or need. God forbid a government agency actually tries to be responsible with the taxpayers' money and allocate it toward projects that serve a larger public good.

Because Silverstein has the most to lose by a delay, and he'll be the only one that gains if they get built.

From the initial sounds of things, it looks like the deal hews a lot closer to what Silverstein wanted than what the Port Authority wanted. Assuming he can find tenets, which is iffy, it looks like we have another case of government socializing all of the risk and all of the reward privatized into corporate hands.

I noticed the same thing but I wonder if it just appears that way because the base of the building tilts slightly inwards which is how it was designed. Also, because the upper part of the building is going to have angles that also lean inwards maybe it just looks strange now but the angle will make sense as the floors progress upwards and the unusual shape of the building becomes more evident. I agree that it does look a little odd right now though.

World Trade Center Deal Reportedly Reached Between Larry Silverstein and Port Authority

World Trade Center Deal Reportedly Reached Between Larry Silverstein and Port Authority

MANHATTAN — Developer Larry Silverstein and the Port Authority have reached a tentative deal that could resolve 16 months of deadlock at Ground Zero, the New York Times reported.

The deal was still being worked out, and both sides were hoping to have it locked down in time for the agency board's Thursday afternoon meeting, the paper said.

At issue is the "final framework" for development at the site, the Times reported. Under the tentative deal, the Port Authority would finance construction of one tower, on Church Street. A second tower would be financed through funds raised by the Port Authority, Gov. David Paterson and Mayor Michael Bloomberg provided Silverstein comes up with $300 million and tenants for the building, the paper said.

The parties have also agreed to pool roughly $1 billion in remaining insurance money from the terror attacks and Liberty Bonds to ballast construction funding for both towers, according to the Times.

A third tower project would be put off for a later date.


Construction at 1 World Trade Center, the 1,776-foot tall skyscraper once known as the Freedom Tower, a transit center, the 9/11 memorial and other projects are ongoing.

The Port Authority's board was expected to meet at 1:30 p.m. Thursday.

Wrangling over who would pay for construction of the new office towers, and how much office space should be built in a down real estate market, delayed a development agreement for more than a year.

*1 tower is delayed until market will recover

Probably stupid questions here but how many office floors is the lobby equivalent to?

Also, the next 4 floors are referred to as what?

1wtc will be build, 4WTC will be build, 3rd WTC will be build (but there will be some restrictions), 2nd WTC will be delayed.

Final agreement WILL BE announced this Thursday. We will find out all details then. This might not be a 'very accurate" information.

The first beams of 2 new floors is already in place! I must say that I'm suprised by the speed now.

just release from the port authority not what we hoped!
WTCPROGRESS.COMhttp://WTCPROGRESS.COM



Tower 4: The continued construction of Tower 4, which is expected to be completed in 2013. With approximately 60 percent of the tower being pre-leased to the Port Authority and City of New York, the Port Authority would provide a master lease for the project supporting the issuance of Silverstein's Liberty Bonds to finance a portion of the tower's construction costs. Any Port Authority payments made under the master lease would be reimbursed by Silverstein Properties.


Tower 3: The immediate construction of the Tower 3 transit and retail podium, with the construction of the office tower to follow so long as Silverstein Properties hits the following private-market triggers: (1) Raises $300 million of private unsupported equity, (2) Pre-leases 400,000 square feet of the office tower, and (3) Obtains private financing for the remaining cost of the tower without a full public backstop. To help Silverstein Properties obtain this private financing without a full public backstop, it would receive a capped public backstop of $390 million from the Port Authority, New York State and New York City, together with $210 million of equity from the City and the State of New York, with each public entity's contribution limited to a total of $200 million. Any payments under the backstop would be reimbursed by Silverstein Properties and the public sector entities would also have a future Tower 3 capital events participation. The City's contribution is to be paid for using foregone revenues that will not be collected if the tower does not go forward. Until the public backstop is removed, Silverstein Properties would not be entitled to take profits out of Tower 3.

Tower 2: The Tower 2 site would be built to at least street level under a plan to be jointly developed by the Port Authority and Silverstein Properties. This plan would preserve flexibility for the future development of the office tower driven by market demand.

Insurance: Silverstein Properties would use its remaining insurance proceeds toward the construction of Towers 3 and 4 and the payment of ground rent to the Port Authority.

Liberty Bonds: Silverstein Properties would use all of its Liberty Bonds for Towers 3 and 4.

Construction Partnership: Silverstein Properties and the Port Authority would jointly develop a plan to better integrate their construction teams given all of the interrelated work on the east side of the WTC site. This would include a more formal process of information-sharing, decision-making and schedule development and implementation, as well as reciprocal mechanisms relating to delay to provide investors, lenders and tenants with reasonable certainty of timely project delivery.
