Land Infront

I was told, but cannot vouch for its validity, that Cayan wanted to buy the land infront in the middle of 2008 at a price which they then increased by 3x but the owner than doubled his expectations which would mean that Cayan would have had to sell any flats in a new building at 10-12,000 p.s.f. which compares with a much lower price today. Seems unlikely that any deal can be done for a long time into the future.

You know what would have made this building even more awesome?

(Warning: Super lame "photoshopping" below.)

TWINS! -- that twist in opposite directions:

Or even better, triplets, with the middle tower having no twist, the one to its left twisting one way, and the one to its right twisting the other way.

Now that I imagine it, twin "Infinity" towers would have been a great replacement for the twin WTC towers in NYC.

That's a fresh angle. Very cool. The marina looks so dense from that viewpoint.
