Silverstein Throws Himself a Party

You gotta give Larry Silverstein credit for making a big deal out of what others might just want to gloss over: finishing a building before anybody is ready to move into it. The opening ceremonies for 7 World Trade Center on May 23 will feature a midday concert with Suzanne Vega, Ollabelle and kids from PS 89 and PS 234. By that point, only Silverstein himself and his architects will have moved in. The other tenants-on-tap, including the New York Academy of Sciences , Vantone Realty Group and Ameriprise are to outfit their spaces by the summer and move by the fall.
