The never-ending Deutsche Bank Building demolition has become a running joke, but Steve Cuozzo explains how much it's screwing with the rest of the World Trade Center. The underground Vehicle Security Center?which will screen every truck going in and out of the WTC?can't be built until Deutsche is gone, forcing a new VSC completion estimate of September 2013 (original estimate: Feb. 2011). So even if Larry Silverstein could get financing for his pair of planned towers, he'd have to wait that long to start building. [NYP]
