^ Nice Skyscrapers144!

Speaking of models... I just ran into this the other night and I'm wondering if anyone has any info on this... I tried googling to see if I can buy a kit. No such luck.. Any info on price and where I can buy it?? Is this Lego??

It's pretty cool and would love to buy this and work on it whenever I have free time. I'm sure something like this could take me a whole year. It has tens of thousands of pieces. lol.

I believe I've found it. The model does appear to have been made out of Legos.

It took the guy 5 years to study and plan, 32 lbs of Legos, and 1 year to build it!

Thanks for the link.

5 years to study the plan? lol.. I think this may be above my skill level. It's awesome though. Maybe i'll give the paper model a try first.

Thread is labelled as U/C because technically the tower is still having internal work done to it in basement levels and on constructed floors, but it is NOT yet cleared for vertical construction, this may change next quarter though so keep your eyes peeled!

I guess I'm the only GroupM employee on these boards... we received word from our CEO late last week that we have officially signed the lease for 3 World Trade Center with the expectation of the building being completed in 2016. The prior signature was the letter of intent, not the lease.
If this is true, then

GroupM takes large 3 WTC space
By Steve Cuozzo

December 23, 2013


"In a spectacular holiday present for the World Trade Center and developer Larry Silverstein, media investment management giant GroupM has signed a 20-year lease for over a half-million square feet at 3 WTC, paving the way for the Richard Rogers-designed office and retail tower to rise to its full 80 stories.

GroupM will consolidate 2,400 employees into the new skyscraper from several Midtown locations — the latest, and one of the largest, migrations to downtown by a non-financial company.

GroupM is the parent of WPP Group media agencies including Maxus, MediaCom and Mindshare. The company follows on the heels of Condè Nast, which is moving to the Port Authority and Durst Organization’s 1 WTC.

Silverstein Properties and GroupM signed a nonbinding term sheet in July, as The Post first reported. The complex negotiation was said by jealous industry insiders to have bogged down and be unlikely to be completed until 2014 if at all – but they were wrong.

GroupM is taking 516,000 square feet in nine floors of the tower’s base. The skyscraper will have a total 2.5 million square feet of offices and 183,000 square feet of retail in the 6-story podium, which is now nearly finished.

The deal allows Silverstein to “move forward to complete the financing and construction of the tower, also known as 175 Greenwich St., according to a spokesman for the developer.

The project estimated to cost about $2 billion will be partly financed with $1.3 billion in low-interest Liberty Bonds. Silverstein still needs to obtain a loan for the rest. But although no start date has been announced yet for construction above the podium, he states with confidence the finished project will open in 2017."

'The deal allows Silverstein to "move forward to complete the financing and construciton of the tower"'

Hmmm. That seems to be purposefully worded somewhat ambiguously. The reporter must have recognized that as well considering it is the only quoted statement in the article.

My memory is foggy, but this deal just means that the PA, the state of NY, and the city of NY, are now all obligated to provide $200 million each for the construction. So there are still some I's to dot and T's to cross so to speak.

Silverstein still has to get the financing set up. But it's a slam dunk with the money he's promised from the public and an anchor tenant.

What could delay things is getting the public sector money to Silverstein. Government bureaucracies aren't exactly known for being expeditious.

Great news as expected! I was actually thinking we would hear news of this around Jan-Feb!

This only means we are a step closer for this...

NEXT



Then the Force will be complete!

Well, I know the PA and the City are on the hook for $200 million. I can't be sure if the state is too. I'll need to go back and re-read some old PA board meeting notes I've saved.
