If all goes according to plan, today we find out who will develop (or demo) the former World Trade Center Building. News broke at the beginning of the year that requests for proposals were being accepted for the vacant, city-owned building at the foot of Canal Street, and it's been the talk of the town since.

· Or will the Tricentennial Consortium's demolition deal go through with plans for a public green space?
