Larry Silverstein: I wish I’d never sold any of my Manhattan holdings

Developer talks WTC, bubble fears and 30 Park Place at Corcoran Sunshine speaker series


If Larry Silverstein could go back in time, he’d keep all of his Manhattan holdings off the block.

“Every time I’ve sold anything – and I’ve only sold at very high prices – five years later, I’ve thrown my hands up and said, ‘I’ve done a dumb thing, ’” the developer said Wednesday, speaking at a Corcoran Sunshine event at the sales office for his latest condo project, 30 Park Place. “I always tell my kids, ‘When I’m no longer here, remember one thing: Don’t sell!’”
