You really don't know much, do you? Those towers were a white elephant for years, and as far as I know they never did reach full occupancy.

Rockerfeller moved many New York State offices to the WTC when it opened to achieve somewhat-near occupancy, and keep the WTC from being labeled a "white elephant".

Saving nearly half the cost of construction by topping them out at 67 floors would have made them almost instantly profitable.

Not true!

In fact it would have created huge losses for the WTC.

Think land acquisition costs, design costs, overhead costs etc.

Nothing in that post about cheap construction, Tukey. So I'm not interested in enlightening you with the WTC tenants' list or anything else. Now STFU.
