The Lower Manhattan Construction Command Center will continue as coordinator of some $21 billion worth of public and private development in and around the World Trade Center site even though its �parent,� the state�s Lower Manhattan Development Corp., is disbanding this fall.
LMCCC is taking on LMDC�s responsibility for the deconstruction of the 130 Liberty Street office building, damaged after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks by the collapse of the 110-story Two WTC across the street. According to executive orders of New York�s Mayor Michael Bloomberg(R) and Gov. George Pataki(R), LMCCC will disband on Dec. 31, 2010.
Charles Maikish will continue as LMCCC�s executive director. LMDC was the conduit for LMCCC�s funding from the Federal Transit Administration. There is speculation that the state�s overseer of urban development, the Empire State Development Corp., also the umbrella group for LMDC, will take over for LMDC, regarding LMCCC.
