It happened to Lincoln Square in Bellevue, Washington around five years ago. It got foreclosed while it was under construction. The construction stopped until around a year or two (I don't remember exactly) later, other developer bought it and finished it.

Great update!

Wow, this is a good start of the new year. If they continue in this speed we soon forget that it started with a whole different speed.

The Next World Trade Center Delay
by Eliot Brown
Jan 5, 2010

http://www.observer.com/2010/real-es...r-delay?page=0

"Since August, developer Larry Silverstein and the Port Authority have been clashing in an extensive, binding arbitration over the redevelopment of the World Trade Center site. And, throughout, key sections have been stalled, with giant holes for two towers on the site going unfilled as the two sides await a ruling from the arbitrators, expected soon, that could chart a path forward.

But as the ruling nears, another option looms: more arbitration, and, with that, likely more delays."

"But, according to the bond filing written by the Port Authority, he wanted three main items: relief on the development schedule, which currently requires completion of his three office towers within five years; an abatement of the rent "until the project is completed and generating sufficient ground rents"; and a declaration that the Port Authority had breached the 2006 "Master Development Agreement" for the site."

"Should no deal materialize, the Port Authority is preparing a self-proclaimed "Plan B" that would involve building around Mr. Silverstein's two empty holes for Towers 2 and 3. (He has built the smallest of his skyscrapers, Tower 4, up to grade, and is now working on the initial floors above street level.) That plan is not viewed in high regard by those watching the site, as it would cost untold hundreds of millions of dollars in additional investment; would deprive the site of key features such as a parking garage and a secure underground delivery road; and would mean a major redesign of certain features."

What do you mean it's "stuck"?
Do you mean the picture doesn't update frequently?

From looking at the RBZ cam you can see even more perimeter columns added since that picture above.

Good progress, for a few days. Isn’t the core going to be concrete? I must admit that for the “toughest skyscraper” in NY it looks pretty fragile, so far.

Yeah the core is a 'steel cage' that will be encased in concrete. Keep in mind also that the steel being used here is way, waay stronger than in other skyscrapers.

Unless they really are demolishing the wtc or earthcam can look into the future, earthcam is doing some strange stuff again. When I checked I saw those new columns. Then, when I checked again a few minutes later they were gone
