Can you people read? All this means is that Tower 3 will go up first, and Tower 2 will stay on hold. It doesn't mean it's canceled.

This is actually good news, because one tower rising and one on hold is better than two on hold.

We all knew that one or the other was going to be built. The disappointment for some of us stems from the fact that we would have preferred Tower 2 to be built first. Assuming Silverstein sticks with this current strategy, even if it doesn't mean Tower 2 is canceled outright, the longer that it takes to be built the more likely that it will be redesigned or turned into a stump.

hmm what can i say, i'm glad that at least one tower will be built. but tower 2 is really the best among the other WTC towers, it would be such a shame to cancel it. the only hope is 2WTC is on hold for the next years and by the end of the decade they start building it, eventually.

It's actually a very good strategy. There will be an uproar about everyone's favorite tower not being built, money may be thrown at Silversteen to build 2WTC.

Good point, but I don't know if that will work.

Not a bad idea, but I would still rather see 2WTC.

The Port Authority and Silverstein seem to be getting closer to a deal...

http://www.observer.com/2010/real-es...ower-wtc-offer

Port, Silverstein Move Closer with New Two-Tower WTC Offer
By Eliot Brown
March 4, 2010 | 4:16 p.m

"The offer calls for Mr. Silverstein to raise $300 million in new private capital and for the city to put in a significant contribution toward the redevelopment before the Port Authority would put up money to back financing on two towers—Tower 3 and Tower 4—according to multiple people familiar with the proposal."

"The Port Authority's proposal would also give Mr. Silverstein two years to pre-lease 500,000 square feet in the second tower, the Richard Rogers–designed Tower 3, as a condition to the agency's backing of the financing. The rents would have to be at least $80 a foot, a rather high level for Lower Manhattan (Most of the higher floors in Mr. Silverstein's 7 World Trade Center were asking $75 a foot at the market's peak) for a large amount of space."

"There also seem to be other issues, as a redesign of Tower 2, which would likely be replaced by a podium or open space, and a redesign of Tower 3 that has been requested by the Port Authority."

Why can't the build Tower 2 and leave Tower 3 as open space? Doesn't common sense exist in this equation?

2WTC will cost $260 million more to build than 3WTC. It's not about choosing favorites, it's about money...

Maybe....
Certainly don't know what Silverstein thinks of this offer. It sounds like it may be a good deal for the PA but not so good for him. This may be just another smoke screen they're putting up to look good. The redesign will not only be another expense but also will delay things further, something the PA wants but nobody else does.
