I think so aswell

but what a crazy project... in the middle of a city... to bring all the materials to the site, it must be a hell to work on it... and then with the rainy weather when everything gets even a bigger mess...
Ofcourse they surely have a strong team working on it... but still... it seems tough!

They won't drill caissons into the bedrock. Caissons are only used when bedrock is very deep into the ground. This one will be built right on top of it. One of the plusses to building skyscrapers in NYC.

That's is a lot tougher than I had originally thought. As far as the new york fireproofing regulations, I'm not sure how they apply with large vs small buildings. A friend of mine has a company that does fireproofing new york and I don't think he ever does intumescent or cementitious fireproofing without at least a 2 hour fire-resistant time, or something like that. I'm not sure if that's new york law, but I know that his fireproofing company always sprays very thick. That could just be his way of ensuring it won't need respray though, so I'm not sure if that's regulation in new york.

Larry Silverstein Seeks Federal Stimulus Funds Before They Go to Waste

By Julie Shapiro

LOWER MANHATTAN — The World Trade Center site could get a boost from President Barack Obama’s stimulus package — funds that otherwise might go to waste, according to a state agency.

World Trade Center developer Larry Silverstein is seeking $200 million in stimulus bonds to help build Tower 3, a 71-story skyscraper that is scheduled to open in 2015, the Empire State Development Corporation said.

The $25 billion federal Recovery Zone Bonds program expires at the end of this year, so the bonds must be issued before then or they won't be able to be used at all, said Jonathan Beyer, senior counsel at the ESDC.

The bond program is part of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, and was launched last year to support capital projects in areas struggling with job loss.

The federal government divided the available bonds among hundreds of regions across all 50 states, but some of the regions may not have spent their allocations, ESDC said. Rather than let up to $555 million in "recovery zone facility bonds" allocated for New York go to waste when the end-of-year deadline passes, Silverstein hopes to use the financing at the World Trade Center site.

It is unclear how much of the bond money remains, and the ESDC is contacting the state's cities to find out whether they've used their share.
"We are in the process of trying to determine if there will be any excess capacity," said Frances Walton, chief financial and administrative officer at ESDC.

The ESDC, the state agency that would issue the bonds, held a brief public hearing on Silverstein's proposal Monday morning and is scheduled to vote on it Monday afternoon.

In addition to the stimulus bonds, Silverstein plans to finance the 2.1 million-square-foot tower with federal post-9/11 Liberty Bonds, insurance proceeds, private investment and other public money.

Running out of time? Getting a major tenant may also help.

I almost forgot why when I first saw the renders of the new WTC complex, this one I immediately called my favorite. I've been reminded now. Amazing work STR!
