The new Three World Trade Ccenter is supposed to soar 80 stories. But construction could stagger to an end at just seven.

According to Crain's New York Business, developer Larry Silverstein plans to turn the tower into a low-rise retail center if he can't find a big-time tenant by the end of this year.

Silverstein could fill the building with retail stores for now. Then, when things improve, he could remove the cap and build higher.
