Maybe there's still some dust that could be covered for the memorial. Of course constuction work would have to be stopped for about 2 years or so...
Hope not

NYguy, you're funny. Haha!! Who would want that ugly thing?!

Honestly, for someone to balk up against this monstrocity being torn down,
they must have very bad taste in architecture!

Oh. Maybe Libeskind might want to try to do something with it. He might be able to turn it into one of his shards of glass, as was originally planned for Ground Zero!

I wonder, now that deconstruction on THIS building will be hampered by delays resulting from fires and dangerous work or careless workers

WPCS Selected for World Trade Center Wireless Network Project

By Anil Sharma
TMCnet Contributing Editor


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WPCS International Incorporated, a design-build engineering services provider for specialty communication systems and wireless infrastructure, has been selected for World Trade center project.



WPCS serves the specialty communication systems and wireless infrastructure sectors and provides services that include site design, technology integration, electrical contracting, construction and project management for corporations, government entities and educational institutions worldwide.

The company, through its Heinz Corporation subsidiary, has been selected by Silverstein Properties as a wireless consultant in the design of an advanced wireless communications system for World Trade Center buildings 2, 3 and 4. The deal includes a needs analysis with technical performance specifications for a wireless in-building radio system that will insure the reliable communication for all emergency agencies including the Port Authority, FDNY and the NYPD.

Manhattan-based Silverstein Properties is a real estate development and investment firm that has developed, owned and managed more than twenty million square feet of office, residential and retail space. Silverstein Properties in July 2001 had completed one of the largest real estate transactions in New York history by acquiring the 10 million square foot World Trade Center, only to see it destroyed by terrorist attacks six weeks later on September 11, 2001.

Committed to the redevelopment of the World Trade Center site, the real estate company in May 2006, opened 7 World Trade Center, a 52 story 1.7 million square foot office tower at 250 Greenwich Street, just north of the World Trade Center site. The building is now approximately 75 percent leased.

Meanwhile, in September 2006, designs were unveiled for three new office towers on the World Trade Center site, which includes 200, 175 and 150 Greenwich Street and construction on the three towers is slated to begin when the Port Authority delivers the sites to Silverstein Properties in January 2008.

Larry Silverstein, president and CEO of Silverstein Properties, commented in a statement: "Beginning with 7 World Trade Center, we have set a new standard in technology and security for our buildings. This includes a commitment to the most advanced communication systems throughout our properties."

Richard Fann, president of WPCS/Heinz, added, "Our company completed a similar project for Silverstein Properties at 7 World Trade Center a few years ago and we are pleased to be selected again for this new project as we are aware of the high quality standards imposed by Silverstein Properties. We are looking forward to establishing the parameters for a best in class wireless communications system for such an important project."

I don't think he's scheduled to get the site of 200 until sometime around June. But there'll be plenty of madness before then.

For Daquan13,

It's 10 p.m. Do you know where your Freedom Tower thread is? LOL

But really, the rules of SSP are sometimes hard to fathom. And I've been posting here for years. But the new format is very similar to SSC.

To a supertall construction thread, and it's pissing me off: will the moderators PLEASE find a life, and do something else with their spare time besides constantly scrambling the skyscraperpage.com site map like an egg omelette?

Can whoever is responsible for destroying the ENTIRE point of this City Compilation (you know, to have all the buildings of the city in ONE place) be brave enough to explain to us what the point of removing the SINGLE MOST FAMOUS BUILDING IN SAID CITY to another place in the forum is??

Thank You. That is All.

P.S. How about having the FT thread shown here AND under the Supertall thread, Sparky?

That would be best, if possible. The new New York forum just started moving along nicely.

Well, MIIAIIRIIK just put the kabosh on that that idea...

Thing is, isn't the entire point of a city compilation to be able to find the buildings in ONE place?

Can you provide some reasoning at least behind your move MARK. This is one of the more ridiculous moves made on this forum.

Keep the NYC buildings together.

I absolutely concur. So Mark assures us that as soon as any supertall begins construction, it will go "poof!" from the New York forum and wind up mixed in with a gazillion other towers, from Chicago to Abu Dhabi to Hong Kong... Well, great going, guys!

Don't you think people come to the New York compilation chiefly to find out about the most famous towers? That those towers are likely to be the "Supertall" ones? I mean, seriously: just how much traffic do you expect 14 story tall condos on Roosevelt Island to attract???

Just for a change, how about taking some constructive criticism: the NYC compilation turned out to be a pretty good idea, so please don't fix what wasn't broken - or rather, please unbreak what wasn't broken - and put the FT back here, and drop plans to bit by bit remove all the interesting buildings and plop them back into the incomprehensible mishmash that is that new "Supertall" forum.

Forget about it. The great OZ has spoken. The forum should just go back to the way it was before the NY/Dubai division, because eventually, someone is just going to want to hack up the supertall forum. And really, this forum has always been more of a skyscraper forum, not a city specific one (although there are regional subforums). Therefore, following the supertall example, all skyscraper proposal/construction threads should be grouped according to size. For example:

-supertall construction -supertall proposals -900 footers/construction - 800 footers/construction - 700 footers/construction - and everything else. Everything would fall into place (and order).

WHATEVER they decide: once they do it, can they at least stop changing it every couple of months like a bunch of kids rebuilding their sand castle on a beach somewhere? Jeesh...

^ Those particular renderings came out in the latest round of WTC renderings.

Well, I think it's true: the supertalls are the most exciting buildings going up in New York, and to this poster, anyway, it seems odd to pull them out of a New York compilation.

Its too bad, really. The most high profile towers under construction will be yanked out of the NY forum, but the high profile proposals will remain at least. The best solution would be to have threads in both sections, as with the Freedom Tower (in both the WTC and supertall forums). People could post in either one.
