You know, in the early days I was on Silverstein's side and defended his plan(s) for 2WTC. But now it's safe to say, that he is the major reason the building still has no tenant(s). Why? Simple really: because he's greedy! Just take a look at what is happening over at the Hudson Yards - that's what I call a success story. The HY towers are filling up nicely, whereas the WTC is still struggling. It's an embarrassment really. Silverstein is asking too much - no company is willing to pay such high prices when there's cheaper class A office space available somewhere else.
I can't believe that Silverstein is still playing this game - 'tenants will eventually come to the WTC no matter the price'. Yeah sure .. I mean it's been only 15 years since 9/11. What is he waiting for? How things are going, New York will see its first megatall before 2WTC is built.
