And now, the moment the W Hotel & Residences has been waiting for. The Lower Manhattan Development Corporation has issued (via Twitter, 'natch) a progress report on the deconstruction of the former Deutsche Bank building at 130 Liberty Street just south of the World Trade Center, a long process marked by delays, scandal and the occasional tragedy. According to the LMDC's color-coded guide, the upper third of the building has been completely deconstructed. In January, contractor Bovis said the building would be dunzo by October 16th, but the LMDC now says the process it at least three weeks behind schedule. Left unanswered: the details of the next building at the site to get in the W's way.
