7 years after 9/11 two buildings nearby Ground Zero still not deconstructed

Some people still have problems with the motive to demolish WTC 7 via explosives. I'll add one to the ones we already knew of.

I found this two articles in the last days and I'm safe to say that Lucky Larry had unbelievable luck with WTC 7, that was "deconstructed" on 9/11 itself, the clean-up costs paid by state and the insurance compensation of some 600 Million dollars for WTC 7 alone in his pocket. Now look at others who had not that kind of luck.


As for the current demolition schedule for the Deutsche Bank building, the source says that the goal ... is to have the building down by the end of the year. "We are working double shifts, six days a week with over 250 people in the building to insure that the building comes down as quickly but as safely as possible."

The source tells GlobeSt.com that the in the abatement phase and once the building is fully abated, the agency we will begin the deconstruction phase.



Fiterman Hall at the City University of New York’s Borough of Manhattan Community College was irreparably damaged on Sept. 11, 2001, by the collapse of 7 WTC. Now the 15-story building at 30 West Broadway is currently 16 months behind schedule on deconstruction, reportedly because of funding issues and environmental impact concerns. Originally [it was] scheduled to have been completed by February 2007...



And consider this:


The new 7 World Trade Center construction began in 2002 and was completed in 2006.

Despite the duration of all clean-up work, the insurance compensation (big hug to Michael Mukaseys role in court!) the new planning, the allowance process, the building process, he had a new building ready, while others are yet not even ready for deconstruction.

Imagine that luck.
