A report released over the weekend highlights a plan to sell off many of the agency&rsquo;s sprawling property holdings, by far the most notable of which is the World Trade Center site in lower Manhattan. That concept has long been pushed within the agency, and it has been implemented gradually over the past decade and a half.</p></em><br /><br /><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd"> <html><head><meta></head></html> http://archinect.com/news/article/73850206/path-fail-the-story-of-the-world-s-most-expensive-train-station PATH/Fail: The Story of the World’s Most Expensive Train Station Archinect 2013-05-24T18:56:00-04:00 >2013-06-18T04:27:36-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/nk/nk6s0hharpzk7ehp.jpg" width="514" height="386" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>At $3.74 billion, plus another $200 million in contingencies, the &ldquo;Transportation Hub&rdquo; at the World Trade Center&mdash;not even the busiest station in the Financial District&mdash;will be far and away the most expensive train station built in modern history.

The visit gave him an opportunity to report on how the; infrastructural-logistical pressures of a post-Panamax infrastructure, along with long terms trends towards containerization, have resulted in a loss from 35,000 longshoremen to today 3,500 working at the ports.</p>
