First ever master co-ordination plan established for Manhattan 

As the political and financial wrangling finally gets resolved and plans for the new World Trade Centre crystallize, so the focus inevitably shifts onto the immense challenge of delivering this vast scheme. In all, there are some 29 individual projects with an estimated cost of $21 USD billion planned for Manhattan. The WTC2 alone will require an estimated 907, 338 million cu yds of concrete, 222,437 tons of steel all erected by 5,900 workers and 17 tower cranes…Questions have been raised in the New York press as to whether there is sufficient concrete, steel and glazing production capacity to build WTC2. For the first time ever, a master co-ordination group has been set up, the Lower Manhattan Construction Command Center (LMCCC) is headed up by Charles Maikish, executive director of the city, state and federally funded coordination entity.
