Calatrava, Archdiocese make it official at FiDi church site

The Greek Archdiocese reportedly has a contract in place with architect Santiago Calavatra to design the new Church of St. Nicholas at 130 Liberty Street.

The designer will create a new and larger version of the house of worship destroyed on 9/11, a move backed by Governor Andrew Cuomo, despite the efforts of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which is co-developing 1 World Trade Center, to move the church one block west to its original location at 155 Cedar Street.

For his part, Calavatra is also designing a delayed — and $2 billion over budget — World Trade Center Transportation Hub, overruns that have drawn the governor’s condemnation.

So far, no reaction from the powers-that-be has surfaced to the Calavatra Church of St. Nicholas contract, according to the New York Post. [NYP]Julie Strickland
