From today's Real Estate section in the NY Post...

Reach For The Sky
One World Trade Center reaches new heights


By Lois Weiss
December 7, 2010


Quote:
This month, the soon-to-be skyscraping One World Trade Center will reach the 50-story mark, at approximately 500 feet tall. When completed in 2013, it will top off at approximately 1,776 feet, becoming the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere.

The recent decision by Conde West Nast to target a move to approximately 1-million-square-feet of the 3.1 million-square-foot building was very uplifting for the city and owntown denizens.

...According to Tara Stacom, Vice Chairman of Cushman & Wakefield, who is the lead marketing and leasing agen on the building, the expectatin is that Conde Nast will take some floors between the 20th and the 64th floor sky lobby which have an asking rent of $75 a foot.

Statcom said the building will hae a "podium lobby" at the ground floor with the first office floors starting at the 20th floor. The 64th floor will have a magnificent double height sky lobby that rises above the top of the nearby Seven World Trade Center.


"The 29th floor has huge views of the Midtown skyline," said Stacom. "You don't need to be that hight."

More offices will take up the tower from the 65th through the 90th floor but no asking rent has been made public.

"The floors on top have much higher ceiling heights and the theory was to wait to rent them until the market recovers," said Stacom.

Because the building will be Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified, the air intakes are close to the top with mechanical floors taking up the 91st to 99th floors. The obsrevatory will be on the 100th floor with public restaurants on the 101st and 102nd floors.

The building's very first tenant, Bejing Vantone, will have a total of 190,000-square-feet starting on part of the 64th floor from which they will have a stairwell to the 65th floor. The Chinese company will also have floors 66 through 69. They will also host a club that will be open to others, Starcom said.

"Everyboy who is in the marketlace is very interested in the site and very interested in the discussions," she said of Conde Nast and other tenants seeking space.

The building was designed to be the most environmentall sustainable project of its size in the world and is targeting a LEED gold rating.

Of course, it will also be technologically advanced, which is a selling point in a city where the majority of the newest buildings were constructed in the 1980s and are now 20 to 30 years old.

"A lot of leases roll in 2013 and 2014 and we have tours lined up ever week [for prospective tenants]," Stacom said. "People come to the site and two and a half hours later you are still sitting on the site. The forget the site is 16 acres and there is a lot to see. And then to get through the building it takes time."

One World Trade Center will have three office entrances on the north, south and east of the bilding. The west side is reserved for the public entrance leading to over 400,000-square-feet of underground retail, numerous restaurants and the building's own observatory.

While Stacom said the area now "feels futuristic", eventually the four towers will be filled with office workers, 400 oak trees will provide shade, benches will be installed and two mammoth waterfalls will lend soothing sounds of cascading water to the background.

"It will be a destination place for those working here as well as obviusly a place for the memorial [to Sept. 11th]," Stacom said.

Let's see, there has been no official change of the designation of the 89th and 90th floors, they are still broadcast floors unless someone want's 20 foot ceilings.(Maybe some rich guy would like to lease them, they would make a great apartment with some GREAT views !)( Actually, even though the MTVA deal fell through they will still have broadcast equipment on those floors, just not as much.)

The ceiling heights of the floors above the sky lobby are no different than those below, all the office floors have a 13' 4" slab to slab hight.

The OB deck and the restaurant are reversed, the Restaurant is on the 100, 101st floors, the OB is 102.

I ment mistakes in the article, not NYGuys typing.

Congregants of Church Destroyed on 9/11 Return to Ground Zero to Pray.
Do you guys remember the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church located just one block south from Ground Zero?

Well, the past day there was some kind of ceremony by the congregants of this church.


I hope this post doesn't bring back the discussion about Islam and all that stuff, so please, just observe.

All ceremonial stuff... I'm sorry for my reaction, I'm not religious. But, all people must do what they have to do. I appriciate more nice pics from the building site, that's all. By the way, is this St. Nicholas the same as the "Dutch" Saint Nicholas, a.k.a Sinterklaas? That is a childrens feast like Santaclaus, but then originated in the Netherlands and Belgium, based on the legend of Saint Nicholas of Turkey, protector of children, sailors, etc. in the Thirteenth century, if I'm not mistaken?

Mmm, the cladding is just lovely now on the tower. Btw why would a christian church bring up debate about Islam? Just curious to what you meant there.

Because of the name of the church (St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church):
December 6 is the feast of St. Nicholas (mostly in Greece and other orthodox countries)...

Yes, allright. In the Netherlands and Belgium we celebrate this on the Fifth of December with gifts as a celebration for Saint Nicholas as the protector of children. That's why it is a feast for children. We call him Sinterklaas, as in SantaClause. I believe that SantaClause in Christmas time is also based on Saint Nicholas, but much more commercial exploitated and connected to Christmas instead of the original celebration of Saint Nicholas in the orthodox Greek church and Catholic church.

Yes, December 6th is in some Europian countries day of St. Nicholas..Exactly what Martijn said..In Croatia and I guess in other countries, on December 5th evening kids put their shoes in the windows and to the legend, St. Nicholas fill them with candy and stuff..So kids get a lot of stuff in their shoes in the morning..December 6th..

I did not know that in Croatia this is also celebrated. What I know is that in Belgium and in the Netherlands the celebration starts from halfway November. Kids can put their shoes near a chimney or, more modern the central heating in your home..., and Saint Nicholas and his helpers (the black Pete's, black because of the climbing in chimnies and the charcoal in it) put little gifts in those shoes. On the Fifth we celebrate Gift Night, then a big sack with gifts is put in front of the front door or something, all for the children. The Sixth Saint Nicholas is supposed the go back to Spain (where he supposed to have lived sometime in history).
