Movin’ on Up

Silverstein Properties has just announced it will have a “Freedom Tower Mobilization” tomorrow morning at 8:30. Perhaps this is what people do when they already have held a “groundbreaking” for a building but then had to put everything on hold for almost two years. Or maybe groundbreakings in general have lost their meaning at Ground Zero since they have rarely coincided with the beginning of actual work.

The press release just sent out ends with: “News trucks will not be allowed onto the site in order to accommodate mobilization of heavy construction.”

These guys are serious, folks.
