Developer Larry Silverstein recently told a real estate crowd that reconstruction of the World Trade Center site is a beacon of hope and the future of lower Manhattan is bright. 

Despite the slumped economy, he recalled making a prudent decision to rebuild 7 World Trade Center after the 9/11 attacks. At first, he said, "we were the only tenant and it was lonely," according to The Real Deal. Now, he pointed out, it is fully leased.
