Paterson asks for WTC plans that don’t include Silverstein
Governor David Paterson has asked the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to draft new designs for the World Trade Center site that would allow the project to go ahead without developer Larry Silverstein. Silverstein has been locked in a dispute with the Port Authority over the financing of his three planned World Trade Center office towers. The Port Authority wanted Silverstein to come up with $600 million in exchange for Port Authority financing of two of the three office towers.
