The New York Police Department has issued a secret request for proposals to environmental consulting firms to look at the effects of proposed security measures at the rebuilt World Trade Center. According to the Post, those involved with the project are worried that prospective tenants will be scared away, rather than comforted, by the move. Condé Nast, while not involved in the security talks yet, is likely to have some sway as the probable anchor tenant at 1 World Trade Center, but the same can’t be said for other, less high-profile takers who have yet to enter the fray. Meanwhile, Larry Silverstein has reportedly tapped a CB Richard Ellis team led by Mary Ann Tighe and Stephen Siegel to market the already-rising 4 World Trade Center and the planned 3 World Trade Center and will announce the start of their leasing efforts next year. Yesterday, Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver called for more transparency in the NYPD’s plans in order to create “a balance between security and the very real need for access.” [Post]
