But Foster’s neighbouring project remains stalled

The threat hanging over Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners’ World Trade Centre tower looks set to evaporate.

The practice’s WTC3 building was facing a cap at seven storeys if enough tenants could not be found.

But the Mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg, told the New York Post that the developer of WTC3 is “closer than anyone realises” to landing a key tenant. This would allow the project to complete in 2015.

But work on WTC2 by Foster & Partners was still on hold awaiting more favourable market conditions, said the Post.

WTC1, known as the Freedom Tower until prospective tenants said the name made it too much of a target, topped out in the summer.

The 104-storey SOM-designed tower will be the tallest in the western hemisphere when it completes this year.
