Oooooh....

I have an idea for your signature if you don't mind:

"Ramvid: the f.e.s.b.r. whisperer"


Besides that, I just wanna say it's nice to see Downtown getting denser. Fingers crossed for this one!

CREDIT CRUNCH HAS LEFT MANY MAJOR PROJECTS IN THE LURCH

By Lois Weis
January 15, 2009

Downtown, Time Equities has owned the site at 50 West St. for many years. CEO Francis Greenburger says he doesn't have to make a decision on moving forward with a 65-story hotel and residential tower designed by Helmut Jahn until later this year and can then decide to "landbank" it for a better time.

He already has some permits and some financing for the new building.

ANNOUNCED: June 2008
PLAN: A 65-story tower containing 280 condominiums and a 155-room luxury hotel.

STATUS: Construction began last summer but stopped after a few months. In December, The Real Deal reported that “construction financing will likely be delayed until third-quarter 2009.”

“The project is on temporary suspension right now,” says Dermot Johnson of Time Equities.

I like how people cried out for the crappy old building, that use to be there. Not every old ran down building in NYC a work of art. If I told you it was a crackhouse your tears would stop righhhht, well I can't say that because I don't know if it was lol.
