Rogers stalls at Ground Zero

  • Comment

Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners’ scheme for a 71-storey tower at the World Trade Centre site in New York has stalled, it emerged this week, as the practice announced plans for 35 redundancies

A spokesman said that World Trade Centre Tower 3 at 175 Greenwich Street, for developer Silverstein Properties, had been indefinitely delayed because of the ‘general world downturn in the economy and the impact of this on demand for new buildings’.

A Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners spokesman said: ‘The reason this has been delayed is for similar reasons as to why many office projects in London have been postponed, i.e. the general world downturn in the economy and the impact of this on demand for new buildings – particularly acute in a place like New York where so many large financial institutions are headquartered.’

There is no start date for the project, but the spokesman added that the project would still go ahead, ‘albeit at a substantially slower rate than before’.
