Work began today on the new WTC!

Quote:
fter months of feuding over rebuilding, developer Larry Silverstein accepted a deal from the Port Authority Tuesday that maps out a plan for the future of the World Trade Center site.

Under the plan, Silverstein will keep control of three of the five towers on the site. He will also build the signature Freedom Tower, but hand over control of it and another tower to the Port Authority.

Silverstein says he's giving up more than $2 billion in concessions under the deal, including insurance money.

The developer says it's a fair deal, but still wants assurance that he will not be penalized for delays beyond his control.

"Failure is not an option here. We need to get this done now,” said Silverstein. “We owe it to the people of New York who are tired of seeing a hole in the ground where the World Trade Center once stood."

"There just comes a time in every negotiation when you say, ‘Enough. We've all listened to each other, we've all moved, we all know that the time is now,’ and you stop the negotiating and you do it," said Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Silverstein has been pressured from all sides, including Governor George Pataki and the mayor, to make a deal. Under the agreement, both the city and state will commit to renting office space.

Silverstein says construction on one of the towers could start within a matter of days once the deal is signed.

Re: Work began today on the new WTC!

IMO it should be 5 buildings, like the ones that were photoshopped flipping off the middle east. that would be awesome.

but yeah, bout time they start rebuilding, though i wish it was just a remake of the old Twin Towers, but this time using both the external shell it used before as support, and an internal shell consisting of 6" thick fireproof interior chassis that encompasses a huge stairwell and elevator systems.
