The Chinese real estate investment firm Beijing Vantone Industrial Co., Ltd. has formally signed its 20-year, 190,000-square-foot lease with the Port Authority at the LEED Gold-hopeful 1 World Trade Center.
It’s both symbolic and important: the LEED Gold-hopeful Freedom Tower has secured its first lease with a Chinese real estate company for nearly 200,000 square feet of office space.
With $2 billion in construction contracts already on the street for the $20 billion redevelopment of the World Trade Center site, Larry Silverstein calls the project a “freight train – the only way to stop it will be when all of the [LEED Gold] buildings are complete.”
