Developer Larry Silverstein is said to be close to inking a deal with tenants that would allow for completion of 3 World Trade Center, according to a published report.
With 1 World Trade on the rise, plans for 3 World Trade Center are reportedly getting off the ground.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg tells the New York Post that developer Larry Silverstein is close to inking to a deal with tenants that would allow for completion of the tower.
Sources tell the Post the likely anchor tenant would be GroupM, part of advertising giant WPP.
Silverstein has already finished the below-ground portions of the building but plans for the rest of the tower were up in the air after prospective tenants, including Morgan Stanley and UBS, lost interest.
Silverstein is hoping to have the 80-story tower complete by 2015.
