Pataki to address Downtown redevelopment

Aside from the good news about retail rents, Downtown will also see a visit from Gov. George Pataki today, who will try to set a forward-looking tone for downtown redevelopment when he addresses the downtown Manhattan business and civic community. Apparently, he has appointed his chief of staff to take control of the rebuilding effort in Lower Manhattan, and Mayor Michael Bloomberg says the chances of luring financial services giant Goldman Sachs and its 8,000 workers to a new headquarters in lower Manhattan are still alive and well. Meantime, a full-scale replica of the World Trade Center memorial has been created in Canada and federal officials have decided to test for contaminated dust from the Sept. 11 tragedy in apartment buildings and workplaces along part of the Brooklyn waterfront and as far north as Houston Street in Lower Manhattan. In all the hubbub over the World Trade Center site setbacks, many may not realize that, like the Phoenix, Lower Manhattan is slowly rising from the ashes, says the Sun. more [Newsday]
