Silverstein may start building final WTC tower without signed tenant

2 World Trade Center might be built before it has a committed tenant, reports Lily Katz for Bloomberg.

Larry Silverstein of Silverstein Properties Inc., the developer behind World Trade Center 3, 4, and 7, told interviewers that the tower could be built on spec, saying, “For all intents and purposes, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to start on Tower 2 because it won’t be finished until about 2022, 2023.”

Citigroup Inc. and 21st Century Fox Inc. and News Corp. both considered becoming the anchor tenant for 2 World Trade Center, but ultimately decided against it.

2 World Trade Center will be designed by Bjarke Ingels Group and house 2.8 million square feet of space over 80 stories.
