Lowermanhattan.info is saying "tower crane to be installed inside site over weekend of Aug 4-5". I'm a little surprised a third crane is going in. Maybe they need it for the eastern side of things? LM.info isn't always 100% reliable, but there pretty good. Something to look for at least.

3 WTC would be nice for AIG, as would be Related's HY project.

AIG said to mull leaving Manhattan HQ

The New York-based insurer leased more than 800,000 square feet at 180 Maiden Lane as of Dec. 31SL Green said in its annual report.

By Bloomberg News
July 27, 2012 1:24 p.m.

The Maiden Lane property became AIG's principal office after the company struck a deal in 2009 to sell its previous headquarters at 70 Pine St. to Kumho Investment Bank.

(Bloomberg) - American International Group Inc., the insurer rescued by U.S. taxpayers, is weighing a move from its headquarters at 180 Maiden Lane in Manhattan, said two people with knowledge of the company's planning.

The approximately 2,000 employees there may be transferred to other locations as part of a cost-saving consolidation, said one of the people, who asked not to be identified because the deliberations are private. An AIG-owned property at 175 Water St., within walking distance from Maiden Lane, is among the buildings that may absorb the workers, the person said.

AIG has less need for space as Chief Executive Officer Robert Benmosche shrinks the company and sells units to pay back a U.S. bailout that swelled to $182.3 billion. The New York-based insurer had 57,000 employees worldwide as of Dec. 31, down from 116,000 three years earlier.

"Our attention is certainly on 180" Maiden Lane, Andrew Mathias, president of SL Green Realty Corp., which co-owns the building, said yesterday on a conference call discussing second- quarter results. "We're actively exploring the possibilities of both a redevelopment of the asset and bringing it to the market for new tenants."

AIG leased more than 800,000 square feet at 180 Maiden Lane as of Dec. 31, New York-based SL Green said in its annual report. About 850,000 square feet in the 1.2 million-square-foot building will be available in May 2014, according to CoStar Group Inc., a Washington-based real estate data service that tracks office leasing. SL Green co-owns the building with Moinian Group.

"No final decisions have been made regarding the 180 Maiden Lane lease," Jim Ankner, a spokesman for AIG, said in a phone interview today. "We are committed to preserving AIG's presence in New York City."

The Maiden Lane property became AIG's principal office after the company struck a deal in 2009 to sell its previous headquarters at 70 Pine St. to Kumho Investment Bank, a South Korean firm, and Youngwoo & Associates, a Manhattan-based developer. AIG also sold a Tokyo office property to Nippon Life Insurance Co. for about $1.2 billion.

Eric Gerard, a spokesman for Moinian, referred questions regarding the AIG lease to SL Green. Heidi Gillette, an SL Green spokeswoman, didn't immediately respond to a voicemail.

Is it me or does the space between the perimeter columns and the core not look big enough for retail?

Don't judge everything by pictures. There is too many people here that do that.

yeah, that would be twice the required minimum amount needed to continue.

I wouldn't expect cladding soon. They will install it. But probably not till the end of the year at the earliest. There's still concrete to pour for the floors and fireproofing that needs to be done before they install the glass.

They're saying they're only building it to the 8th floor so how much of the building can they actually complete?

Wow, that last picture is freaky! Look at the South pool. It's like you can see the Southern end of it!

Pondering the perimeter columns and intended building usage is perfectly reasonable. Don't interpret simple questions and ponderings as combative. Take heart, his post wasn't a negative judgement, but rather a real question regarding the layout of this building.

I too have pondered the footprint of this building relative to its usable space and wondered exactly how the podium will used/occupied. Does anyone have details on what will be on the ground floor?
