Got a notice that my apt will be closing on Jan 15, 2009. I bought at the very beginning... thought it was a good deal back then. Not so sure now! It is a great building, but the market is soo soft and it is very difficult to find a decent loan. At least I can enjoy it for a few months before it go into foreclosure.

Anyone else get the closing letter?

its hard to notice in Dark Knight, since its under construction at that time so it kind of blends in cuz its not that tall

well, now that is no problem.
