We gotta fill this city with more supertalls and bring the WTC back in the future.
Not to get off subject...When will the WTC Freedom Tower begin again?

RATNER COURTS TOP TIMES TOWER TENANT

March 30, 2006 -- It looks like Bruce Ratner may finally have a big tenant interested in taking space in The New York Times Tower now under construction opposite the Port Authority bus terminal.

The Post has learned the law firm Dechert is in the market for some 200,000 square feet, where they would move from 30 Rockefeller Center.

Dechert has looked at several city offerings through a team led by Mitchell Konsker of Cushman & Wakefield.

"We are looking at all the alternatives in the marketplace and have not finalized the location yet," Konsker insisted.

Other sources said a lease had been issued for the Times space but it would not be unusual for a group of lawyers to negotiate on several spots at once.

Disney's ESPN is another 200,000 foot tenant seriously considering the 708,000 feet Ratner has available. The entertainment group would consolidate from several locations, sources said.

Ratner is being represented by a team led by CB Richard Ellis Tri-State honcho Mary Ann Tighe, who could not be reached.

Asking rents at the Renzo Piano-designed glass tower are over $70 a foot with occupancies scheduled for the end of 2007.

Thanks TowersNYC. That's an interesting "hidden" shot. You can see the Westin Hotel on the right but I have no idea where this is taken from.

I'm not sure, but could it be from the Met-Life building?

It looks like it's near Park Ave. @ 42nd to me.
The photo looks zoomed from a distance, hence my idea of Met-Life.
