175 Greenwich Street

175 Greenwich Street is the address for a new skyscraper being erected as part of the World Trade Center reconstruction in New York City. The office building has also been referred to as World Trade Center Tower 3 and will be on the east side of Greenwich Street, across the street from the original location of the twin towers that were destroyed during the September 11, 2001 attacks. Pritzker Prize-winning architect Sir Richard Rogers was awarded the contract to design the building, which will be 1,155 feet (352 m) tall. The building slightly resembles the John Hancock Center in Chicago. The four spires in the design would give the building a pinnacle height of 1,255 feet (383 m).[2]. The total floor space of the building is anticipated to include 2 million square feet (186,000 square meters) of office and retail space. The building's groundbreaking took place in January 2008, and it is scheduled to be completed by 2011.[1][3] The structural engineer for the building is WSP/Expedition Engineering Ltd.[4]

Upon completion, 175 Greenwich Street's pinnacle height will be taller than the Empire State Building's roof (381 m) and it will become the fourth tallest building in New York City as measured from its pinnacle

We all were new at one point or another. But most of us took the time to check before write or making new thread. Since he didn't take the time, he'll pay for the crime lol.

You have to be pretty naive to think there wasn't already is reading about this building considering they were already threads about the others. Also if you start a new thread I would think you'd want to make sure that you have the newest (and correct) information available before starting it. He obviously didn't do either and just wanted to be a star by starting a thread right off the bat.

Silver hints W.T.C. consensus is to build more towers

By Julie Shapiro
June 5 - 11, 2009


The negotiations about the future of the World Trade Center site have been going on behind closed doors, but on Friday, Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver gave the first hint of what is happening.

The consensus among the stakeholders appears to be shifting toward developer Silverstein Properties’ goal of building as many office towers as possible with the Port Authority’s help, Silver said.

“That’s the purpose,” Silver said in an interview with Downtown Express. “Build more, and build more now. That is our purpose.”

Silverstein cannot build his Church St. office towers on his own because he cannot get construction financing. The Port has agreed to help with Tower 4 but refused to backstop the financing for Tower 2, saying Silverstein can build it when the economy improves and the Port should not be expected to take the risk of financing offices on spec for a private developer. In place of Tower 2 and the neighboring Tower 3, the Port wants to build temporary six-story retail podiums.

But Silver said Friday that now is the time to build the office towers, allying himself very closely with Silverstein’s position. Silver added that Gov. Jon Corzine and Gov. David Paterson are both being “cooperative” in the goal of building more towers now, and Mayor Michael Bloomberg has previously expressed support for building despite the economic downturn.

That is not to say that the stakeholders have sided entirely with Silverstein against the Port Authority. Silver and Bloomberg have called on Silverstein to devote more money to the project, and on Friday Silver said an agreement would require all the parties to make further investments.

“They’re trying to work through a conclusion that has everybody put in a little more: the Port Authority, the city, the state, and most important, Larry Silverstein,” Silver said. “And I hope to get there.”

The closed-door meetings began after an impasse between Silverstein and the Port Authority over the tower financing and delivery of key site infrastructure threatened to halt progress at the site. Alarmed by that prospect, Silver called all the site stakeholders together, and they held their first meeting May 21 at Gracie Mansion, at Bloomberg’s invitation. The meeting included Bloomberg, Silver, both governors, Larry Silverstein and Port Authority executive director Chris Ward.

Since then, Silver said there have been three major meetings with top stakeholders including Larry Silverstein. Those three meetings were held quietly and out of the public eye, often at odd times of the day, Silver said. In addition, Deputy Mayor Bob Lieber has been chairing daily meetings of lower-level staff representing all the parties, a source familiar with the discussions said.

The next publicly announced meeting of the principals will be Thurs., June 11, and the stakeholders have said they hope to have at least the broad outlines of an agreement by then.

“We’re not there yet,” Silver said Friday. “It’s a matter of money, it’s a matter of commitment, it’s a matter of saving money, it’s a matter of refocusing so we can get a result.”

Bloomberg’s office and Silverstein Properties declined to comment. Steve Coleman, Port spokesperson, said only, “Our position on the Port Authority putting in any more money or risk has not changed.”

All the parties involved have been reluctant to talk after Bloomberg made it clear he wanted the negotiations to be entirely private.

“We’re all sworn to secrecy,” Silver told Downtown Express, explaining why he could not go into more detail.

But Silver did repeat his position that now is the time to build Towers 2 and 4, even though the economy is down.

“We’ll be in a different business cycle by 2014 or 2015,” Silver said. “And there are some people who think, there is no other development going on in the city, no other office space. If you look at all the studies, everybody will tell you there’s going to be a need for expanded commercial space in New York City.”

Silver listed the other office projects that are falling through, from Hudson Yards to Atlantic Yards, which will make the World Trade Center towers all the more important.

“New York, Downtown Manhattan, ground zero is going to be the place to go,” Silver said.

Silver said the rebuilt World Trade Center could follow the example of the original Twin Towers, which initially filled with government offices because there was little demand for commercial space.

Silver’s first district office was in room 5489 of 2 W.T.C., he recalled, and later he was moved down to the 26th floor as the real estate grew more valuable. Finally, he was moved out of the building altogether.

“Hopefully there will be a market for it,” Silver said of the new office towers at the site, “and we can prepare for it.”

Apparently the PA wants to turn towers 2-4 into a shopping mall type area and cancell the three towers, let's hope to god that doesn't happen.

The Port Authority and the developer Larry A. Silverstein took one step closer on Monday to a standstill at ground zero, after Mr. Silverstein essentially rejected proposals from the governor for resolving the impasse over building office towers on the 16-acre site.

The developer said that proposals by Gov. David A. Paterson were unlikely to lead to building two of three skyscrapers planned for the World Trade Center site, the solution sought by Mr. Silverstein, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver.

Work is progressing on the first of Mr. Silverstein’s office towers. But he and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which leases the building sites to Mr. Silverstein, have been at odds for months over how to pay for the other towers at a time when there are no tenants on the horizon and no private financing available.

Mr. Silverstein, who has received more than $150 million in development fees but invested little of his own money, has insisted that the Port Authority finance two of the three office buildings. But both Mr. Paterson and the authority have been reluctant to invest in speculative office towers.

Mr. Paterson said in a letter to Mr. Silverstein on Monday that if the developer was unwilling to invest more than $75 million in the multibillion-dollar project, he should just proceed with the first tower, which is economically viable. He could then build retail centers and the underground portions of the other two buildings while waiting for tenants and additional financing.

“Our initial review indicates that these ideas will not likely put us on a path to a two-building solution,” Janno Lieber, who oversees the World Trade Center project for Mr. Silverstein, said in a statement Monday.

Both Mr. Silver and the mayor, who had been involved in an earlier attempt to resolve the dispute, quickly issued statements saying that Mr. Paterson’s proposals would not work.

“The path suggested by the governor will not get us there,” Mr. Silver said.

Andrew Brent, a spokesman for the mayor, said, “From the beginning, we’ve said both parties would have to compromise to avoid stalemate and further delays on the site.”

But in what has become a very public dispute, Mr. Paterson said in his letter that if Mr. Silverstein failed to come to terms over securing financing for the office towers, the governor would direct the authority to build all the public components of the trade center without him.

The city, state and Port Authority expect Mr. Silverstein to demand binding arbitration later this month under a 2006 development agreement. That process could take months, or even a year, possibly leading to further delays for other projects at the trade center site, including the memorial and the transit center.

Real estate executives who have spoken to Mr. Silverstein say that he would seek hundreds of millions of dollars in damages, arguing that the authority has undermined his ability to build the office towers because it is significantly behind schedule in rebuilding Greenwich Street, the $3.2 billion transit hub and a vehicle security center.

In his statement Monday, Mr. Lieber criticized the authority’s “chronic failures on the site.”

But in a move that would seem to undercut Mr. Silverstein’s bargaining position, officials at the Port Authority said they expected to finally complete the preliminary site work for the developer’s second and third towers and turn over the land by next Monday. The authority has been paying Mr. Silverstein $300,000 a day — a total of more than $100 million — in penalties since July 2008 because of the delays.

The Port Authority was never supposed to finance the office towers. Under the 2006 agreement, Mr. Silverstein was to build the three towers with a combination of insurance money, tax-free bonds and private financing. But the once-booming real estate market has all but collapsed. The downtown vacancy rate at office buildings is expected to climb sharply this year, and most executives say it would be a mistake to build a lot of new office space, although few are willing to say so publicly for fear of angering the mayor.
