The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey wants to scale back the plan for the new World Trade Center to include just two signature skyscrapers, according to a media report. The current plan calls for five towers. Port Authority officials are at odds with developer Larry Silverstein, who wants to move ahead with the five towers. The revised proposal calls for eliminating one tower and reducing the height of two towers to five-story "stumps," leaving two of the original towers. Mayor Michael Bloomberg has called a summit later this week so the parties can discuss the dispute.
