    Right, they're not the very best quality, but you get extra credit for sharing the first exclusive photos of the glass to be posted on the web (probably). A for effort.

    In each of those four pictures the glass has different shapes, colors, textures, and qualities. Bloomberg Blue, Green, Etched, and White. This building should shimmer with all the different NY skies.

    SEC has sights on 7 WTC space

    Prospects are starting to look up for 7 World Trade Center, the tower Larry Silverstein is building at Ground Zero.

    The Securities and Exchange Commission is in talks about renting 200,000 square feet, sources told the Daily News.

    And a high-profile downtown law firm, Fried Frank Harris Shriver & Jacobson, is considering taking 450,000 square feet.


    It's early days in both would-be tenants' negotiations. But if the SEC actually leased space there, it would send a huge message - because the regulator was a tenant in the original 7 World Trade Center, which was destroyed by the terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers. The SEC has been housed since then in the nearby Woolworth Building.

    And if a Fried Frank deal were to pan out, it would be big enough to make the firm the anchor of Silverstein's 1.7 million-square-foot project, which is partly built.

    In an interesting convergence, Fried Frank - currently headquartered at downtown skyscraper 1 New York Plaza - does a lot of securities work. How convenient to be in the same building as the SEC.

    If either of these prospects winds up signing a lease, it will be a breakthrough for Ground Zero developer Silverstein. He doesn't have a single office tenant lined up for 7 World Trade Center, which he will complete late next year or in early 2006. For now, the only occupant of the 52-story skyscraper is Con Ed, which is operating a substation on the bottom 10 floors of the building.

    A spokesman for Silverstein declined to comment.

    Cool! I hope they take the space. If they do the building will be a good magnet for other leases that could take place at the future area of skyscrapers. :P

    wish I had my camera when watching 7WTC contruction from the corner of Greenich St. and Park Place this morning. From that angle the trapezoidal nature of the building made it look truly enormous.

    The building looks as fat as it's predecessor from West Broadway. From about Worth St, it is just above the low buildings. I'll get a photo when a few more floors are added.

    The view down Greenwich from Harrison St is fine.


    Early morning. The sunlit north side of 1 Liberty Plaza is reflected in 7 WTC.

    I thought the Port Authority was also planning to lease space in the new 7 WTC. How much space did they take up in the Twin Towers?

    According to a 2002 Canon Business Solutions newsletter available on the Internet, the Port Authority occupied 35 floors of One World Trade Center. Whether this number includes or excludes floors occupied by mechanical systems, I don't know.

    IMO, the new 7 World Trade Center building will be an improvement over the old one.
