NEW YORK CITY-It may be that some real work will finally get done on the site of the World Trade Center. Just one day after master leaseholder Larry Silverstein unwrapped details of his 7 World Trade rebuild, the Port Authority–which is the owner of the property–has broken its silence and revealed that it has been developing its own master plan for the acreage.
