Business digest
REAL ESTATE RUSH: The terrorist attack that toppled the World Trade Center may have destroyed or damaged as much as 30-million square feet of office space, setting off a search for quarters that threatens New York City's economy. Rebuilding just half of that space -- the amount believed completely wiped out -- would cost as much as $6-billion at a prevailing cost of $400 per square foot, according to real estate experts. In the meantime, displaced companies, including Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and American Express Co., have begun to sign leases for offices in the suburbs. American Express, whose headquarters is at the World Financial Center, has already moved workers to sites in New Jersey.

Airline fears bankruptcy
