Real Estate NewsMuch-criticized WTC transportation hub is seven years overdue and $2 billion over budget. The Port Authority’s World Trade Center Transportation Hub will finally open next week, but don’t expect any parades or ribbon-cutting.

Kenneth Cole Productions nabbed the building in June 2006 for $24 million, according to property records.
