6:30 in the evening and the cranes are still in motion and people are on the site - looks like finishing up a pour.

I love it that they are maximizing work time.

Bear in mind that CIM acquired the land at a massive discount during the Crash.

I really don't belive in it, I had acess to the full availability last month and there were almost none one and two bedroom units in contract, and without great views - lower floors - it is almost impossible to sell all these units in that speed.

It's irrelevant to me. I don't care what the sales are, but if one-third were sold, it's possible they were the cheapest units.

I can see these units selling quickly. NY and London are safe havens. NY has an edge at the moment because the Sterling is starting to decline amidst the declining UK economy and the UK's declining status in the world. I hope that decline reverses, but investors will take it into account, since a Sterling today might be worth a lot less than a Sterling in five years.

So this thing is looking at a profit of $1.7 billion!?!?!?!?! That is, a 150% return on investment.

Doesn't seem possible. If that were the rate of return these tower would be going up all over NYC.
