From March 29, 2012 Board Minutes

WORLD TRADE CENTER STREETS, UTILITIES AND RELATED
INFRASTRUCTURE PROGRAM – PHASE II, PACKAGE II – FINAL STREETS
AND SIDEWALK SURFACES, STREETSCAPE ELEMENTS AND OPEN
SPACES – TOWER 2 – AWARD OF CONTRACT


Quote:
It was recommended that the Board authorize the Executive Director to award Contract
WTC-324.359.02, through construction manager Tishman Construction Corporation (Tishman),
to Paul J. Scariano, Inc., the lowest bidder pursuant to a publicly advertised/low-bid process, for
the installation of final streets and sidewalk surfaces, streetscape elements and open spaces
adjacent to Tower 2, along Vesey, Greenwich, Fulton and Church Streets
, as part of Phase II of
the World Trade Center (WTC) Streets, Utilities and Related Infrastructure Program (WTC
Streets Program), at an estimated cost of $5,315,706, inclusive of net cost work and an eightpercent allowance for extra work.

At its meeting of October 22, 2009, the Board authorized Phase II of the WTC Streets
Program, which includes the final design and construction of street and sidewalk surface
finishes, trees, paving, bollards and streetscape furniture, at an estimated cost of $140 million,
including the provision of expert professional architectural and engineering services by
Downtown Streetscape Partners, in an estimated amount of $5 million. Via a related action at
that meeting, the Board also authorized the retention of Tishman to provide construction
management services to support the WTC Streets Program and other projects at the WTC site.
The scope of work for Contract WTC-324.359.02 supports the areas surrounding Tower
2, including Vesey, Greenwich, Fulton and Church Streets, and includes the installation of
concrete sidewalks, granite curbing, bollards, street lights, traffic signals, concrete foundations,
asphalt surfaces, trees and streetscape furniture on Church and Vesey Streets, interim asphalt
paving on Fulton Street, as well as the installation of utilities on Fulton and Greenwich Streets.

The pre-purchase of granite curb materials to be installed under the proposed contract was
authorized previously by the Board. The pre-purchase of bollard covers to be installed was
authorized previously by the Executive Director.

Pursuant to the foregoing report, the Committee on Operations, acting for and on behalf
of the Board pursuant to delegated authority, adopted the following resolution, with
Commissioners Bauer, Moerdler, Pocino, Rechler, Samson, Schuber and Steiner voting in favor;
Commissioner Sartor recused and did not participate in the consideration of, or vote on, this
item. General Counsel confirmed that sufficient affirmative votes were cast for the action to be
taken, a quorum of the Committee being present.

Thanks for that info. Looks good.
It would be good to start with the public space around WTC2 and not wait for its completion.

$140 million! That's crazy. They might as well make the streets out of gold while there at it.

I presume the 140m is for the whole remaining wtc construction area that needs streetscaping?! Just this 5.4m is for the area marked in red around WTC 2.

Though, that is what I presume it is, because otherwise it would be far to much for a few yards of stone, benches and a tree!

Of course the 140m is for the entire WTC site. That's still a ton of money if you ask me. We're talking about sidewalks, bollards, tree planters, asphalt, benches, streetlights, etc. $140,000,000 for just that?

Well, add here workers, probably a lot of them, machines, work hours and area which has to be done, it sounds a little bit more possible..But still a lot of money..

Welcome to New York.

I just found out how much it cost to make a "dog run" (a fenced area in a park where dogs can run off leash). It consists of putting up 4 foot high chain link fencing, putting in a gravel base, and a couple park benches for seating. The total area covered is maybe a third of a foot ball field.

Cost? $600,000.

Nothing is cheap here.

It would really suck if they removed the fins to save money.

bump...

...so what exactly is going on? Construction halted to make way for the surrounding street/sidewalk area correct? Will construction commence once the street/sidewalks/surrounding areas are completed? ...or will it be halted until they find tenants?

It has been said I hundred times in the this thread, the tower will not rise anymore until a specific number of sq-ft is leased. For now it wont rise anymore and the area around the tower will be finished.

I think you're thinking of 3WTC. This tower isn't going to restart for several years at least IMO. Not till T4 and T3 are leased up. And by the looks of it, that's gonna be awhile.
