I think that it’s a beautiful tower. The extra bracing would have looked nice from the outside, but it would have been a negative for tenants whose views would’ve been obscured. That’s a problem for Verre.
Great point. We only look at it from the outside. I didn’t think about how that would suck for tenants.
The quadruple spire chop though, can’t get over that. It would have been something different in the skyline.
Anyway, I like articles about more of the building selling out space. It will only push for 2 to go up.
The company has been scoping out buildings in Midtown near Bryant Park and 3 World Trade Center for somewhere between 250,000 and 300,000 square feet, sources told Crain’s.
Lol, you just touched on my biggest issue with modern development.
Literally millions of people will look at the outside of this building while only a hand full will see the inside.
Curb appeal is a million times more important than someones bedroom or office view. It’s a matter of “the greater good”
WTC 3 looking a lot like the original WTC 5,6 and 4 in this pic.
They’re still working on the retail section on this tower? Anyone know when that will complete? Especially that small entrance with the 2 elevators
Silverstein turned a setback on the 17th floor of 3 World Trade Center into a massive outdoor terrace for tenants of the 2.2-million-square-foot building. The 200-foot-tall terrace spans 11,000 square feet, making it the largest office terrace in the city — at least according to its developer. Only half of the terrace, roughly 5,500 square feet, is open to tenants at large. The other half is reserved for GroupM
Kelley Drye & Warren Lease Space at 3 World Trade Center.
“The 103,000-square-foot lease encompasses the 66th, 67th and 68th floors”.
“The firm plans to relocate in 2020 from its current offices in Midtown at 101 Park Avenue”.
While I don’t like the NY Post some interesting information about the retail space at WTC 3.
“And retail mall operator Westfield blames the Port Authority.
Westfield says it can’t bring in store tenants because it still doesn’t have the keys. “The space hasn’t been handed over yet,” a company spokesperson said — meaning by the Port Authority.”
“ Two huge restaurant deals — with Eleven Madison Park super chef Daniel Humm and with British steakhouse Hawksmoor — collapsed last year when they got fed up with waiting”.
“The PA plans to open a new transit lobby this week that will connect the Oculus mezzanine with Three World Trade’s office lobby”.
It would be nice if Larry announces tomorrow that he’s building 2 WTC on spec.
Sorry for the Apple link, i will update with regular link later.
Big and good news for WTC tho
that’s like, 50k sf short of a 2 WTC anchor lease. Well, they’re running out of space fast to lease at 3 WTC. This would put the building at around 75% iirc.
Does anyone know where the transit lobby lets out underground?
