The rebuilding of Ground Zero is one of the most architecturally, politically, and emotionally complex urban renewal projects in American history. From the beginning, the effort has been fraught with controversy, delays and politics. Aside from the staggering engineering challenges of the site itself, a major complication is the sheer number of interested parties. Politicians, developers, architects, insurance companies, local residents, and relatives of 9/11 victims all profess a claim to the site and are often in conflict with one another. With inside access to both the project and key players, 16 Acres tells the story behind the headlines. At the heart of the struggle that has encompassed eleven years, nineteen government agencies and over $20 billion, is the dramatic tension between noblest aims: The desire of all to "get it right," and the politics, ego and ideology that is New York City.
