For the second time in as many months, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey on Wednesday postponed a vote on a financing deal to complete the 3 World Trade Center tower, an indication that the agency is still divided over how much it will commit to the long-delayed project.
The owner of the World Trade Center wants billions more in compensation from the airlines whose planes were flown into the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001.
The arrangement of nearly 3,000 names at the World Trade Center memorial is now available as a free iPhone app, memorial officials said Wednesday.
Silverstein, meanwhile, expressed surprise that a deal hadn't yet been reached and implied that he has been the one to make concessions.
"Over the past month we felt we had made substantial progress on the terms of a 3 World Trade Center agreement," he said. "Having agreed to the requests conveyed by Port Authority leadership, we are surprised that the discussions did not yield a successful resolution. We remain committed to working with the Port Authority to reach an agreement that accomplishes our shared mission of building 3 WTC."
