Schick and the Deutsche Bank tower

While local officials began publicly debating a new use for the post-demolition Deutsche Bank tower site last month, another battle over the one-time office building at 130 Liberty Street has been unfolding, according to the New York Times. After Bovis Lend Lease, the company in charge of the tower’s demolition, filed a complaint in court last month claiming that the city had stiffed it out of $80 million for work at the site, the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation is firing back. The group filed a court document June 23 criticizing Bovis for having the “gall” to request more money after the repeated delays on the project. Avi Schick, chairman of the LMDC, said that Bovis has failed to adequately fulfill its role in the demolition. “There are two Bovises,” Schick said. “One that speaks with contrition and accepts responsibility for its safety lapses on the site, and then there’s the other Bovis with its had in the taxpayer’s pocket.” [NYT]
