WTC 1 will be surpassed someday no worries. Keeping Nordstrom below 1776 is a nice act of respect if you ask me, especially concidering it's design, with the last bit of height being a spire/antenna. Beating 1776 ft. that way would be a bit cheezy.

Absolutely. And besides, who really cares? It's just a spire.

Yes. He gave it away when he started saying 'shekels' which is a pretty eccentric RW expression (not to mention John Boehner). In his defense though, Robert's calmed down a lot from past accounts (when even I got annoyed) and he contributes a lot too.

Chicago bashing aside, this man of many names has provided loads of photo content and, more importantly, inside info on real estate in Manhattan.

I still don't get why every few weeks a single user is the basis for the discussion instead of the buildings.

I just walked by, and there's still no rendering. While I expect a design basically like what Yomby revealed, this clearly is still a work in progress. If that were not the case, Extell would have to post something.

Probably one of the best when it comes to accurate and consistent inside information.

Just wanted to be sure because he was one of the best at that, until recently started reading up on his comments about Manhattan's real estate, which all seems accurate and concise. I knew the John Boehner part kind of gave it away, but wanted to be sure.

I agree! Lex inside info and contributions is invaluable to the New York threads. Keep on pouring it in Lex!

Um... pretty much everything he's ever posted has given it away, not just that one thing. Not that anyone should really care, the Chicago bashing is uncalled for but he does provide a lot of great info. Plus he loves NY, and I love NY.

Do you guys remember that dude James who, almost two years ago, said that he saw the renderings, and it looked like a Version of Trump Chi with hard edges? He was right.

Actually, yes I do. He went by JamesDL or something like that. Pretty much disappeared after a few posts.

EDIT: his posts are here
