<nettime> Irrepressible capitalism: WTC redevelopment


_Grid_ magazine, the lifestyle magazine for New York real estate
developers, today web-posted a news item/propaganda piece on Larry
Silverstein's hiring of architects as consultants in drafting WTC
redevelopment plans. Silverstein envisions "something of spectacular
beauty, something that again will become the icon of New York and serve as
the economic generator of activity of the financial district and [honor]
the 6,000 lives lost and the courage of those who came to help. "In five
years we can have this thing done," he concludes. The _Grid_ announcement,
with link to the story:

Robertson Architects to help him plan the redevelopment of the devastated
World Trade Center, the developer told GRID today. For more on the story,
