World Trade Center Bond Yields Lowered as Investors Seek Safety
November 01, 2011, 4:16 PM EDT

"By Martin Z. Braun


Nov. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Developer Larry Silverstein, buoyed by investor demand for the safest assets, sold $1.23 billion of tax-exempt bonds to help finance construction of 4 World Trade Center at lower yields than forecast.

Goldman Sachs Group Inc., which managed the sale, priced $514 million of bonds maturing in November 2051 to yield 5.05 percent, or 0.05 percentage point lower than indications earlier in the day, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Yields on debt maturing in 2031 were lowered 0.1 percentage point to 4.85 percent.

The sale came as Treasuries gained, extending the biggest rally in 30-year bonds since March 2009, on concern that the European rescue plan will unravel. Thirty-year muni yields fell the most in almost a week.

“When you see a rally in a market and yields are declining very quickly, it makes people want to jump in,” said Kathy Bramlage, a director in New York at HighTower Advisors’ Treasury Partners Unit, which manages $7 billion. “The investor is definitely looking to lock in better rates and 5 percent is very enticing.”

Demand for the World Trade Center issue outpaced supply by as much as 8-to-1, said Bramlage, who earlier today said Silverstein might have to raise yields to attract investors. She said she had seen the 2051 maturity marketed with a yield of 5.15 percent, and said it might have to rise as high as 5.25 percent...."

I'm sure it's been said before, but the 1 and 4WTC construction reminds me of the original 1 and 2WTC going up in the early 70s. I believe 2 and 3 going up might look something similar to that as well?

To me this new construction looks very different from the old one because 4WTC is far smaller than the South Tower was.

^Coming from the guy that said that 1WTC and Beekman as well as ESB and 15 Penn look like twins, your opinion is void.

And yes, 4 is smaller then South Tower, but that doesn't matter at this point. Once 4 tops out, the comparison is no more.

The only major difference is the spacing in between the towers.

Their building a mechanical floor at the moment. It'll take a bit longer than a regular office floor.

I never said 1WTC and Beekman look like twins. I only said that 15 and ESB look like twins, which in my opinion they do And btw, saying that somebody's opinion is void is an insult

But lets go to something more pleasant, I have pics
