    i am sorry to say but the New York Post is not the most reliable paper in the world, if it was for the Times, that i would trust

    The NY Post is a reactionary rag that would be better located somewhere in the South. That does not mean it's an unreliable real estate source though.

    If this is public, I'd like to go see the unveiling and the public's reaction. Until then, I'll keep wishing that the post wouldn't leave so much ink on my hands when I thumb through it....

    Who cares about the Post ?
    Will the new building be an awful box or a nice one, that's the question.

    I would trust more that this is true if I'd heard it on NPR or read it in the Times.
    In anycase even if the renderings aren't out by Nov. 20 they'll eventually be out.
    They can take as long as they want, as far as I'm concerned as long as the new plans are magnificent!

    i guess it depends on what you call a "nice box" and an "ugly box" *You have to be optimistic with them, they can be ugly, but sometimes you gotta bear with it.

    A nice box is not overwhelming and has a pretty skin. The exact opposite of 55 Water Street.

    I get this source from a NYPOST editior who was invited to the showing. It will be shown at 11am so it will probably be in the Thursday Paper.

    Yeah, the New York Post is usually somewhere along the lines of the National Enquirer and MTV News in terms of (real) news coverage, though it's still one of the best rags about construction in the city.

    I can't wait to see these renderings, though I'm still not expecting anything grand...

    Developer to release plans for first rebuilt trade center tower *

    November 19, 2002, 4:46 PM EST

    Marking an important step in the rebuilding of ground zero, developer Larry Silverstein was set to release plans on Wednesday for a new 7 World Trade Center, just north of where the twin towers stood.

    The 52-story lower Manhattan office tower will incorporate "cutting-edge safety and environmental features," Silverstein's spokesman, Howard Rubenstein, said Tuesday.

    The original 7 World Trade collapsed on Sept. 11, 2001, at 5:25 p.m. _ more than eight hours after the twin towers were attacked. The building, which housed a Con Edison power company substation, the mayor's Office of Emergency Management and other offices, had been evacuated, and no one died when it fell.

    Silverstein was to release plans for the new building at a news conference Wednesday at the site of the future office tower.

    The developer, who owned 7 World Trade and leased the twin 110-story towers from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, at first hoped to start rebuilding 7 World Trade as early as last summer but yielded to community pressure to step back and redesign the building.

    The new building will be narrower than its 47-story predecessor so that Greenwich Street, formerly cut off by 7 World Trade Center, can be restored.

    Tomorrow's the day! *I am so excited!
