Doctoroff’s Favorite Landlord

Deputy Mayor Dan Doctoroff couldn’t resist taking a dig at his adversary at Ground Zero during a Crain’s breakfast this morning in which he went ebullient about the future of Lower Manhattan:

Larry Silverstein is so confident in the future of downtown that he is already raising the rent on space the city will take in Tower 4.

He went on to praise Silverstein, though, and said the designs for Towers 2 through 4 (which will be shown to the press tomorrow), look “magnificent” and “spectacular.”
