NEW YORK | 3 World Trade Center | 1,079 FT | 68 FLOORS


#1782

For the first time in 17 years fencing is completely gone around the Trade Center on Church Street.

Today:


#1784

It looks like more of the space around 3 was opened. I did notice a cladding strip that seems to be missing? How will they add it if the space below it has been opened to the public?

They’ll probably have a crew come on site with lifts and close it off temporarily

#1787

Or use the BMU

Finally filling in that remaining section of the facade:


#1789

You were watching for that too?:wink:


#1790

Lol it’s been driving me nuts! Looks like they were just test fitting the pieces because they took it back down. Hopefully it’ll be done before the end of the year.


#1791

Done. :slight_smile:


#1792

Today:


#1793

Looks like they opened the pathway behind the building. I see pedestrians in that area now. Just in time for the end of the year.

They are taking 70,000 sq ft on the 39th and 40th floors.

Building 2 wtc would be a topper to Silverstein’s cake if he manages to fully lease his completed buildings first. That’s probably the priority even if they’re trying to snag an anchor. This puts 3 WTC around 40%, while his other towers are already virtually filled. 1 WTC (owned by Durst and the PA of course) is over 80% as well.


#1796

I hate how effective subway ads are. I got my mattress from Casper a few years ago when they were still in Soho? Cool to see them take off and move into a bigger space.


#1797

This. Once all the other space is filled, there’ll be reason and demand to build the final tower. Unfortunately, a slowdown seems imminent and we might have to wait yet one more building cycle for 2 to be built


#1798

So is the Casper bed good? I was considering one a while ago.


#1799

Hudson River Trading moving from 4 WTC to the top 4 floors of 3 WTC…


#1800

slowly but surely chipping away at a tremendous amount of space. It seems faster recently. Hopefully by 2021 they’ll be closer to 75%, if not greater.


#1801

That means that the terrace at 4WTC will be available once again.
