Silverstein has faith that new WTC buildings will be fully leased

Developer Larry Silverstein is certain that the new buildings at the World Trade Center will end up fully leased, he said on NY1's Inside City Hall. Tower 7 is already fully leased, and Silverstein said he thinks other the buildings will soon follow. He said he is already in negotiations with several large firms to lease space in the towers for "large blocks of space in Tower 4."

For Tower 3, he said he is in discussions with large tenants who require major space in a new building because they use a significant amount of technology, and are interested in a "green" building that is LEED-certified. Since the buildings that are currently home to many companies are 60 years and older and are hard to retrofit, there is a massive movement to new buildings, he said. He also pointed out that no other place in New York will be served by so many mass transit options.

Silverstein is the man of the hour, if it weren't for him we would probably still be looking at a hole. The PA was and still is wasting time for nothing. Instead of giving the WTC site a high priority status, they turned the whole thing into a puppet theater. Shame on them! I have deep faith that Silverstein will find tenants and ergo finish both 2 and 3WTC. By 2015/16 everything will be done.

I agree with that. This site is a kind of open wound (in more than 1 way) since 9-11 which needs to be closed.

I agree I want to see it all finished, it will not look right until it is. They will have to build some of buidling 2 because it looks like that the archway from the transportation hub is connected in part to part of the building.

3WTC is such awesome design but I don't like that it's now only 30 meters taller than 4WTC

I think we were spoiled by the original version of 3WTC. The current design is of course inferior, but it's still stunning outside of the context of its own development. I actually prefer the crown now to what it was.

It was sacrificed for a worthy cause, though. It looks like they really want 1 and 2 to be the centerpieces from afar.

In fact, the new design has kind of grown on me.
