Port Authority officials in New York are considering building two low-slung buildings that could eventually become pedestals for skyscrapers at ground zero. The buildings would rise two to six stories, and would become bases for towers after the real estate market recovers. In the interim, they could house shops and office space. "The last thing the Port Authority will do is to leave holes and pits in the ground downtown," noted Port Authority Executive Director Chris Ward.
