Troubles At The World Trade Center
All this was reported by the AP today over on the HuffPost's NY page. The slowdown on World Trade Center 1, which was rising at a floor a week, is being attributed to technical difficulties as the building passes the 90-story mark. But problems with the other projects are more complex, involving a problem in the steel production for the site and political/budgetary disputes with the Port Authority.
The bottom line in all of this is that completion of the site is going to be delayed for months and possibly years, with the opening date for the 9/11 Museum being pushed to 2013 at the earliest. It's disappointing news considering how so much progress was made in the last couple years. Hopefully, the mayor can intervene and get these entities working together to complete this massive project sooner than later.
