It isn't old news, it's from last week.

Sorry, but STERNyc is a very reputable member at both SSP and WNY. He said on both sites that someone at Silverstein told him the projects were on hold.

^ question is did silverstein himself tell him that both project are on hold. If it didn't come out of silverstein mouth then it isn't true. But what do I know maybe silverstein a lier but I wouldn't call him that to his face.

According to Silverstein the project won't be going ahead without bank funding, assuming this report quoted him accurately.

Another cleared site that is ready to go will have a Four Seasons Hotel with a 912-foot residential tower on top, he said. The project will begin once the institutions come together and the banks start to lend again. “At the moment are they lending? No. Today? No. Tomorrow? Watch. Tomorrow they will start to lend again. We’re beginning to see the first signs of freeing up.” Office space in the area will underpin the business for the future, he said. The WTC is where the spatial needs for business is, “when the economy comes back and the market starts to grow again,” Silverstein said.

I said that a month ago you can't quote me a month later saying look what he said now point is he didn't say it then. So either he's a lier or times have change lots of thing can happen in a month.

I am pretty sure he did say that a month ago. Work is being done on the foundations still so there is still activity at the site and some days there is significant activity at the site. But I think the idea was always if by the summer when they should have funding, if they didn't then the project's structural work would not continue.

I like Silverstien and I hope things work out for him and this project.

My post wasn't about you kingsc, it was about Silverstein himself saying the tower wouldn't progress without bank finance.
You wanted evidence from Silverstein's mouth, and that's what you got.

Silverstein is nothing but talk. I refuse to listen to him in reference to when each project will reach completion because it's all BS. In January 2008 he stated his three Towers would be done by 2012. He said this without realizing he didn't have enough money to finance the three Towers. He gave the people something positive to look forward to. He made it seem easier said than done because the PA has finally turned over the Tower 2 and 3 sites to him since it took those morons forever to excavate it. Tower 4 is looking good and I hope it is done by 2012 because that site needs something positive. It's not enough 9/11 had to happen but now there are rebuilding delays and it's ridiculous.

You can't qoute what I say, then say your post wasn't about or towards me. I never said it was about me. I just wanted to know why, I was being qouted for something a said a month ago. But it is what it is I'll get over it.

There is sporadic activity at this site, it's not noticeably active every day i go, however they may be doing work that i can't see/hear from the street like welding or inspections. I'm going tomorrow i think so i'll try & get fotos.

^ If there is news it'll be posted here, there's no reason to bump old(ish) threads asking for news.

I thought that this project is on hold.

If and when it rises, it will be a magnificent pair with Beekman -- two approximately 900 foot towers near each other with one being ultra-modern and the other being classical.
