NEW YORK | 1 World Trade Center | 1,776 FT (spire) / 1,368 FT (parapet) | 104 FLOORS

From my understand it could be one large anchor tenant or several smaller ones. I believe the stipulation is to have something like close to 1 million sq ft of the tower leased to secure funding? Or close to that. It’s just easier to secure one large anchor tenant of that size versus looking for a bunch.


#363

I think 400k-600k sqft of leasing was the number being thrown around for the minimum to restart construction. I imagine it would be extremely time consuming to piecemeal that amount of space from smaller companies and no company would want to sign a letter of intent without a guarantee that the tower would be fully financed.

Thanks for the responses.


#365

Looks like this deal fell through. I wonder who these supposed “better offers” have come from. That middle section needs to be filled already!

EDIT:

Radio Station K104.7 has moved their broadcasting equipment to 1 WTC…


#366

Spire has been off for almost a week now. Wonder what’s going on…


#367

Is that the beacon shining at the top? I can’t tell.


#368

Yeah beacon is still on…I’m guessing the lights may need to be repaired or something along those lines. They’ve been off since 09/10.


#369

Is the beacon still broken, like it doesn’t rotate?

Also I thought they had the lights off as a deference to the 9/11 Tribute. Didn’t realize they were broken. This poor tower.


#370


So they totally built these new BMUs and now they just rotate them around the ring but never actually use them… just like the old ones


#371

The spire lights are back on, by the way


#372

81.2% leased. Slow but steady.


#373

Nice! 81% is pretty great for a tower of this size and for only being open for 4 years. Especially given this sites history. This makes it office tenant #55 in the tower (which includes all the small businesses subleasing through Servcorp) and 8 broadcasting tenants!

throwback to 1 WTC lit red (for Cardinal Dolan’s elevation, if I remember correctly)

Sadly, FB seeks to lease 750k sf in a 1960s eyesore on Madison. They could have anchored 2 WTC.


#377

which building robert? A quick google search isn’t revealing it to me


#378

Halloween lighting on WTC1 podium.

From Earthcam.


#379

It’s the only 60s-era building on lower Madison. It’s on the east side of the street.

Keep chipping away at those awful empty floors with worklights.
