Skyscraper 1) What are few of the reasons that the World-Wide Plaza was considered for development by the Developer William Zeckendorf, Jr., in the film Skyscraper? The Developer William Zeckendorf, Jr., considered the four-acre site for Worldwide Plaza beginning in 1984, and the first person he contacted was Terry Seidenberg to propose the purchase of the proposed one hundred-million-dollar parking structure.
