The PA would likely fill Tower 3 completely with tenants and once there's no aviable space, lease Tower 2.

Otie, when you say completely, do you actually mean COMPLETELY, or do you mean after they pass a certain square footage they can move on to Tower 2?

I hope it's the latter, because we're all impatient

He is just joking. I don't think is is up to the PA to decide which tower will be filled first.

Awesome news for the world trade center development again with all these tenants looking at the wtc one is bound to sign!

Morgan Stanley to World Trade Center?

By Laura Kusisto 6/17 6:23pm


Following a shocker from a couple of weeks back that UBS is considering moving some of its offices from Stamford, Conn., to the World Trade Center (if only for the sake of the social lives of those poor, young traders raking in six-figure salaries) comes another rumor that a major bank is checking out the shiny new towers under way.

A source said that Morgan Stanley, which is in the market for 800,000 square feet, has also kicked around the idea of a move to the World Trade Center site—as sure a sign as any that the center could once again become integral to the country’s finance industry.

Well, not so fast, said another source, who noted that Larry Silverstein is in no hurry to sign tenants right now, preferring to wait until towers two, three and four are closer to completion and he can fetch rents possibly into the triple digits per square foot on the upper floors.

Meanwhile, it was earlier reported that Morgan Stanley was mulling a move to Goldman’s dowager former headquarters at 85 Broad Street, but a source close to the matter said the bank is not negotiating there.

For now, our money is on a renewal at Brookfield’s 1 New York Plaza. It might not have quite the views of its shimmering WTC counterpart, but there’s always been something to be said for the familiar.

A call earlier to Morgan Stanley’s broker, Newmark Knight Frank’s Barry Gosin, was not returned.

I would be very happy if they just kept the current pace, and not stop at the ground level. Hopefully by the time that both this can 2WTC reach stump height, all the anchor tenants will be secured, and the towers are proceed to rise and finish by the end of 2015. But that's probably still the best case scenario.

But it does seem likely with UBS looking at 3 and many other companies looking at the WTC as a whole.

I'm not a business man or anything, but if a company is willing to let it be known on the news and such that they're considering the WTC, it's probably serious.

If UBS take place at 3WTC it won't stop at ground level..It will grow to the top without stopping..

So long X-bracing.

The lobby was blanded up as well. It was intended to be awash with video screens. Shame. This building has been gutted of everything that made it interesting.


Ugh.

I don't don't care what they do to the building, as long as the build it to the top.

On a side note what if they said the diamonds on tower 2 have to go lol.

Really? I'd have far preferred a shorter version of the original design. It's lost a hell of a lot.

Shame, this was my favorite. I think 2 is now. Let's hope they don't bland that one up when construction nears.

how did that change happen? Is it normal to make such changes even after construction commences?

This really sucks as they are taking away what little character this whole complex had.
