The Economic Development Corporation says tomorrow’s hearing on $3.345 billion in triple tax-free Liberty Bonds for rebuilding the World Trade Center is still on for tomorrow morning—despite hefty speculation that the city will somehow convince developer Larry Silverstein to relinquish his claim on at least some of the 10 million square feet of office space—and get someone else (the impeccably well-connected Steve Ross, perhaps?) to build condos.

Good Jobs New York has posted Silverstein’s application online.
