LMDC Shares 130 Liberty Decontamination Update

Lower Manhattan Development Corporation (LMDC) officials shared a brief update about the 130 Liberty Street deconstruction project at the November 10th Community Board 1’s World Trade Center (WTC) Redevelopment Committee meeting.

Spokesman Michael Murphy explained to the board that floors 13, 14, 15, and 16 have been cleaned and cleared by environmental regulators, who are expected to inspect floors 11 and 12 later this week. Workers are now in the process of cleaning floors 6 through 10, and if the abatement remains on schedule the building should be fully cleaned and regulator-cleared in January 2009.

The LMDC is collaborating with regulators on a revised building-deconstruction plan. Murphy said that the plan could be finalized as soon as early December 2008, and barring any delays, deconstruction should be complete by August 2009. Meanwhile, workers will likely begin removing façade windows from inside the tower, which is fully sealed with negative air pressure to prevent any dust from escaping.

The former 40-story building was deconstructed to the 26th floor when a fire halted abatement and deconstruction work last summer.
