WTC East-Side Development Plan Made Official

"Under the plan, Tower 4 -- now up to the 7th floor, at the southeastern corner of the site -- will be built in full by 2013. The Port will provide credit support for the $1.81 billion tower and its lower-level retail, including approximately $1.36 billion of Liberty Bonds and $450 million of insurance proceeds."

"All insurance proceeds and Liberty Bonds previously allocated to Towers 2, 3 and 4 will be committed to only Towers 3 and 4 under the new plan."

I'm not sure, but I do remember them talking about stopping steel construction at one point a long time ago.

Quote:
At last, Larry Silverstein and the Port Authority have a deal regarding the financing of Silverstein's 4 World Trade Center, the first of three towers he's to build at Ground Zero. Now what?

Expect to see the rise of a steel infrastructure that looks like an office building on a fast track before the end of the year.

With the PA's 1 WTC already up to 350 feet, the long dormant pit at last shows signs of restoring at least half of the great commercial core destroyed on 9/11.

The deal calls for the PA to provide "backstop" financing (loan guarantee) for 4 WTC, which is funded by $1.36 billion of Liberty bonds and $450 million of insurance proceeds. The 2-million-square-foot tower will rise to 64 stories and 975 feet.

Structural steel has risen to a mere four floors above ground and below-grade lobby and retail areas are complete.

Perimeter steel should rise to the seventh floor -- the first office floor -- by Oct. 30. Then, structural steel is to begin fast-track construction through topping out in spring 2012. The steel should rise at about one floor per week and should reach the 45th floor by Sept. 11, 2011.

The curtain wall devised by architect Fumihiko Maki will begin appearing in winter 2012, and the tower should open in fall 2013.

The PA and the city have pre-leased a combined 1.2 million feet of 4 WTC, but 800,000 feet remain available to commercial tenants.
