It will fit the area perfectly.

Tower 4 will start up any day now. I think it will be one of the greatest even though it is supposed to be simple. Let's not forget how massive it is. Right now, if you compared WTC Tower 4 to every building in NY, it would make them all look small, perhaps excluding the ESB.

Demolition to Resume at Deutsche Bank Building


After nearly five months of inactivity, the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation is close to restarting the demolition of the former Deutsche Bank building, where work halted in August after two firefighters died fighting a blaze in the contaminated tower.
A long-simmering dispute between the redevelopment corporation and its construction manager, Bovis Lend Lease, has been resolved, less than two weeks after the development corporation threatened to fire Bovis, according to government officials.

As part of the resolution, the development corporation announced on Tuesday that it had approved the hiring of a new subcontractor, LVI Services Inc., to strip the building at 130 Liberty Street of asbestos and other hazardous substances and then demolish the remaining structure.

Good news for everyone.

Although this is not the forum for me to answer these questions with a full explanation, i'll make it brief,

The machines would not have to be entirely of metal or steel, as the surface gravity of the moon is 1/3 that of earth, (less stress on the structure of the machine(s)

Transport to the moon can be done with simple radio controlled rocket booster, (arrival time 1 or 2 days) and alot of countys have many of these boosters laying around.

And for what, you ask? the lunar soil is rich in Basaltic compounds and refractory elements (most notably aluminum, and titanium) and the lunar regolith (soil) is ideal for making the most common of all construction materials, that being concrete.

Once exploited, the profit margin would exceed transport and refining costs 10 fold....!!!!
