gbNYC Audiocast, Episode 5: Greening Ground Zero

Episode 5 of the gbNYC Audiocast reviews the ongoing redevelopment efforts at the former World Trade Center site in light of recent remarks from Larry Silverstein about construction progress at the site, as well as uncertainty over the future of KPF’s Beer Belly Building in the aftermath of JPMorgan Chase’s pending acquisition of the failing Bear Stearns. As you’ll recall, in addition to the Freedom Tower, a number of high-profile towers that will pursue LEED certification are currently under construction at the site, including 200, 175, and 150 Greenwich Street, designed by Norman Foster, Richard Rogers, and Fumihiko Maki, respectively. Episode 5 discusses each of these towers in detail, as well as the Robert A.M. Stern-designed Four Seasons Hotel which will rise at 99 Church Street.
