Silverstein has children who, if I remember correctly, were in the towers on 9/11 finalizing his lease. I don't think they'd just up and throw away his legacy if he passed away.

At least I hope not. Silverstein will be remembered as the man who rebuilt the trade center.

Would anybody want his legacy thrown away? The towers will be built, it's just a matter of when.

I don't think this building will go in hold for more than a few months if at all.
Several companies are looking to lock in, it's been announced.

From what I know it'll be purely an office tower. As to when it'll be completed, that's kinda hard to tell. We dunno for how long it'll be on hold, hell we don't even know if it will be on hold for a while or if not. If you ask me a year, I say 2014/2015, which is a pure guess So many factors about this building are still unknown and will stay unknown for very many months

1WTC (Freedom Tower) is being built by the PANYNJ, with the aid of the government and insurance money from 9/11. 2WTC, 3WTC and 4WTC are being built by Larry Silverstein with the aid of the government. 2WTC and 3WTC are possibly gonna be on hold for a while cause Larry must secure some tenants first before he gets money from the government for the construction of these two towers

(Note: If I said something incorrectly please somebody correct me )

With 9/11 rapidly approaching and the memorial will be the center of the global stage for at least an entire day, many companies will likely become interested in the WTC when they see how far along it's come. I think that the towers will not go on hold, and that after 9/11/2011, tenants will come rushing in for a piece of these towers

I appreciate that coming from you, Kanto. Keep it up!

One thing though, while the PA is in charge to build 1WTC, the Memorial the Hub and the Vehicle Security Center, it is also in charge to build the below grade levels of Tower 2 & 3, as well as the first 6 floors of Tower 3 since all this space contain mechanical equipment and ventilation facilities for the Transportation Hub + there's a Vehicle Security Center running at B3 level.

That makes sense. So if Silverstein doesn't find a tenant, the PA will be the one building the 6 above grade floors of 3 WTC.

WTC 1 is being build by part private part state owned company called Port Authority. They hire a bunch of subcontractors who actually do the work. There are way to many of them to list here.

WTC 2;3;4 is being build by private company of Silverstein who in turn also hire subcontractors. Some of them are the same that WTC 1 used and some are different.

whole complex is a nightmare in terms who owns what and who builds that. All towers have different time frames in terms of when they will be finished. I even want to mention to you in case you missed our previous conversation - towers 2 and 3 so far are not even going to be build higher then street level in tower 2 and floor 7 in tower 3.

That is of course if there is no tenants found who wants to lease so much office space. So this information is current as of today and only as of today. I hope I am wrong about economy and someone with big office requirements is in the works. UBS just walked out of the plans to lease Tower 3

True, there are many radical enthusiasts of the wtc here in the city who'd be pissed if it wasn't. I'd be one of them!
