I saw her on the news here in Baltimore. It looked like she was about to melt! What a classy lady...always has been.

We had the highest temp on the East Coast today...105 at BWI and 106 at Frederick...a town a few miles west of B-more.

"Press Releases
THE DURST ORGANIZATION SELECTED TO NEGOTIATE EQUITY MEMBERSHIP INTEREST IN ONE WORLD TRADE CENTER
Date: Jul 07, 2010
Press Release Number: 48
Action Adds to Growing Market Confidence in One WTC and Momentum of Entire WTC Site

The Port Authority today selected The Durst Organization (“Durst”) to negotiate acquisition of an equity membership interest in One World Trade Center. Over approximately the next 30 days, Port Authority staff and Durst will work to finalize an agreement subject to the approval of the Board of Commissioners.

The selection follows an intensely competitive six-month process involving some of New York City’s and the nation’s most prominent private sector real estate interests – all vying for a stake in One World Trade Center.

The Port Authority chose to advance negotiations with Durst because its proposal best aligned with the agency’s interests in the long-term success of the office tower and because of the firm’s prior success in developing premier, “green” office buildings.

Port Authority Chairman Anthony R. Coscia said, “We’re extremely pleased that some of the most prominent developers in the country saw market value in this world-class office tower, and engaged in an extremely competitive process for a stake in it. What is most important is that we reach an agreement that is good for the building, for the World Trade Center site and for the region.”

Port Authority Executive Director Chris Ward said, “This confirms a clear and growing market interest in One World Trade Center and adds further momentum to the development of the overall site.”

Under the Durst proposal, the firm will make a minimum investment of $100 million to acquire a membership interest in One World Trade Center LLC. Durst will also bring its expertise in assisting the Port Authority with ongoing construction and take on primary responsibility for tenant fit-out, leasing and property management. In exchange, Durst would receive a financial return tied to its equity interest and performance of the building.

The family owned Durst Organization controls ten million square feet of commercial office space with a current occupancy rate of 97 percent. Most recently, it successfully developed and opened One Bryant Park, the 2.1 million square foot tower on 42nd Street, which is home to Bank of America.

Construction of One World Trade Center has now risen to the 28th floor – about 270 feet above street level.

When completed in 2013, the LEED Gold Certified tower will contain approximately 2.6 million square feet of world-class office space, along with an observation deck and a skytop restaurant.

Currently, the Port Authority has leases or commitments for approximately 1.3 million square feet of space in the tower. The Vantone Industry Co. has signed a lease for 190,810 square feet of office space, which it plans to use for the China Center. The U.S. General Services Administration and the New York State Office of General Services have commitments totaling 1.1 million square feet."



I'm surprised Durst won. They made some not-so favorable remarks about the WTC over the years (too much office space, not the right time). I hope it's a good partnership.

it nice the Queen took the time to visit our fair city. I'm suprise she hasn't been in 30 years. I thought she might have visited after 9/11. How long did it take for us to visit, after the Londan subway bombing? Anyway Hopefully she'll return to see the WTC finished.

That's a long shot. She's already 84.
