http://www.tribecatrib.com/news/2010...de-center.html

"This is the one Silverstein building on the World Trade Center site that actually is taking shape.

Construction on the nearly 1,000-foot-high Tower 4, at Church and Liberty Streets, began eight months ago and now the superstructure for the two-story lobby is complete. Designed by architect Fumihiko Maki, it will eventually house a retail complex and the entrance to the sprawling transit station below the site.

The tower’s concrete and steel core has been built up to the fifth floor.

Silverstein’s recent deal with the Port Authority guarantees funding for the tower’s construction, much of which will be financed through the developer’s remaining insurance proceeds and Liberty bonds. By the end of the year, the developer estimates that the tower, the smallest of the three he had planned for the site, will be up to 20 stories.
Due to be completed at the end of 2013, Tower 4 will open at about the same time as 1 World Trade Center—if it remains on its current schedule.

The tower will contain approximately 1.8 million square feet of office space, about a third of which will be leased to the Port Authority as the agency’s new headquarters. Another third of the space inside the tower will be leased by city agencies."



Only 20 floors by the end of the year? That seems a bit slow. I thought this had a shot for at least 30 floors by end of the year.

I thought their was a shot at both of these towers topping out at the end of next year. Now who knows. The PA has said that 1WTC will top out to its highest floor at the end of next year, the spire probably will be installed sometime in 2012. Their is still a chance 4WTC could reach it's final height before 1WTC will.
