United States of America v. 55,325 Rentable Square Feet of Space etc.,

A relatively rare and complicated "war-time" condemnation proceeding commenced by the filing of a "declaration of taking" by the U.S. government following the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center, pursuant to which the government seized 2-½ floors and the garage of the Starrett-Lehigh Building to replace the destroyed Customs House space.
