A threat how? They are no more a threat to the WTC than Goldman Sachs.

Goldman Sachs is entirely owned and occupied by its tenant. It was built to suit their specific needs. It wasn't built on-spec, like these buildings are. It has nothing to do with the market at large. Not really, anyway.

I know what he means. WFC effect on the WTC will be the same as Goldman Sachs.

I meant that since the WFC towers are Class A (like the WTC) and already existing (unlike the WTC), they might pose a threat to Larry being able to get tenants for the WTC towers.

I don't think they are that much of a threat. Even though they are undergoing renovation they still can't be compared to brand new buildings. The WFC is there for tenants who don't wanna wait but the WTC is there for tenants who want absolute elite

Bank of America isn't leaving WFC until 2013. That's about the same time as 1WTC and 4WTC will be available.

I think it's more likely they'd move those employees into the existing space at One Bryant Park, rather than take up new leases.

But you never know...

I think 1BP is full. Most of the space BoA acquired in the WFC was from its merger with Merrill Lynch. I don't see BoA getting any new space in NY either. Not with all the problems that bank is having...

Damn, 4WTC is already over 700 feet tall! That's certainly a nice surprise! Can't wait till the setback begins.

1WTC = 319 meters or 1047 feet out of 418 meters or 1371 feet
4WTC = Approximately 208 meters or 682 feet out of 298 meters or 977 feet
1 57 = Approximately 125 meters or 410 feet out of 306 meters or 1005 feet

(Note: I used the 418 meter figure for 1WTC when measured from the lowest above ground entrance and I used the 298 meter figure for 4WTC.)

Btw, I have here a nice pic where we can see both 1WTC and 4WTC
