NYC is so massive that even 200m+ projects get kind of lost. The current boom is just incredible.

This is further along than I expected!

And yeeeh much like Atelier 2 - 605 W.42nd St. it seems to be going pretty much unnoticed! Because compared to Cities like London or Paris, this would be getting loads of attention there
