    Let's hope that they don't pull a Viacom or L'Oreal move and fail to anchor a new tower. Hopefully, TW, Credit Suisse, and News Corp will sign leases for several million sf of new space.

    JP Morgan needs to get the hell out of the Union Carbide Building and make a statement here. What would David Rockefeller think of all this? Shame and a pox on Jamie Dimon!

    I think Dimon and JP Morgan should avoid making any big statements for awhile.

    Well the original Twin Towers were completed in 1973, while the original WTC 7 wasn't completed until 1987. One WTC will be completed by 2013, so that would be like 200 Greenwich being completed by 2027, if not later. To put into perspective.

    Looking at the milestones for the original complex...:

    One WTC: 1972
    Five WTC: 1972
    Two WTC: 1973
    Six WTC: 1975
    Four WTC: 1977
    Three WTC (hotel): 1981
    Seven WTC ("afterthought" building): 1987

    I could optimistically see a similar time table for the new complex:

    1 WTC: 2013
    4 WTC: 2013
    WTC Transit Hub: 2015
    3 WTC: 2017
    2 WTC: 2021
    5 WTC: 2027

    (With the performing arts center somewhere between 2017 and 2027)

    Well, I needed a tower to coincide with original WTC7 milestone. And the way I see it, the WTC7 building itself was not a part of the original complex design. When the complex was built, there was just a "Substation that could possibly hold a future building." Similarly the former DB lot is technically part of the new WTC complex, and the southern portion of that lot is basically "reserved for a possible future tower" as far as I know.

    Very nice as always, STR. Hopefully Silverstein is refusing to compromise on this building, since it is going to be his showpiece at the site. My main concern is the loss of the fins on the cladding due to $$$ and cheapening the crown.
