Construction Watch: What's Up at the World Trade Center?

New, 9 comments

After years of inactivity and squabbling at Ground Zero, the last few weeks have been a whirlwind of activity. The Port Authority cleared out the "bathtub" on the eastern portion of the site and turned it over to World Trade Center developer Larry Silverstein for construction. The Survivors' Staircase, the last above-ground remnant of the old WTC, was moved. The Deutsche Bank building situation was resolved, and the sucker will be demolished. Progress on the new Goldman Sachs tower became unignorable, if unignorable was a word. We sent Curbed photographer Will Femia down to the Financial District to get a glimpse of the madness, and his report is presented in gallery form above. Can we finally start thinking positively about the redevelopment of the World Trade Center? Eh, we're sure there are more curveballs in store.
