    Larry Silverstein wants to pack lucrative residential space into his recently revealed 106-story West Side tower, but he’ll need the city to change the zoning rules in order to do so.

    Current zoning only allows for about half of the residential space Silverstein wants to include at 520 West 41st Street, Crain’s reported. The building is located within the Hudson Yard Special District, where rules stipulate that buildings should primarily provide commercial space. [more]

    Renderings of 3 World Trade

    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s real scandal isn’t the lane-closing on the George Washington Bridge — it is a decades-long practice of diverting the body’s funds into real estate investments, according to New York Times columnist Joe Nocera.

    The Port Authority, Nocera wrote yesterday, is charged with improving transportation infrastructure in both states. Yet tolls creep up while needed funds are funneled into real estate projects like the World Trade Center, which claimed at least $7.7 billion in the rebuilding of the area around Ground Zero after Sept. 11. An additional $4 billion “went to an over-the-top PATH station,” Nocera opined, while another $3.3 billion went to the building of One World Trade Center. [more]

    Silverstein Properties’ Marty Burger, who became the development giant’s sole CEO this month when Larry Silverstein stepped down from the co-CEO position two weeks ago, is looking to aggressively expand the firm’s presence outside New York.
