Woah, developer who isn't after money; this building could really get built. I'll wait with Frank for a few more years or until whenever construction starts, with any luck this year.
i never thought this project is dead

Reckless Claim: 80 South Street 'Still Alive'!

Reckless Claim: 80 South Street 'Still Alive'

Wednesday, February 28, 2007, by Lockhart

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With the recent debate about Pier 17, one might almost forget the nearby Tower O' Penthouses that developer Frank Sciame and architect Santiago Calatrava have planned for 80 South Street. When last we checked in, Calatrava was "full of hope." (Poor guy.) Today, we get this:


With the recent debate about Pier 17, one might almost forget the nearby Tower O' Penthouses that developer Frank Sciame and architect Santiago Calatrava have planned for 80 South Street. When last we checked in, Calatrava was "full of hope." (Poor guy.) Today, we get this:

In response to a query from CityRealty.com after a Community Board 1 public meeting [Monday] night at Southbridge Towers on plans by General Growth Corporation to redevelop the South Street Seaport, Gregg Pasquarelli, a partner with SHoP Architects, who works for General Growth and is also the architect for the city's planned East River Waterfront plan, said that the 80 South Street skyscraper project was "still alive."

When asked for more information, he repeated that it was "still alive," but offered no details.

Buyers with at least $29 million in fully liquid capital should immediately begin watching their mailboxes for the new 80 South Street marketing materials carrying the catchy new slogan.

80 South Street: Still Alive!

The DT Express article isn't more than a week old. It's still safe to assume there's a chance it wil go up. The developer has approval and he said he'll wait for years until the time is right to do it.

Moloko:

Give up yourself unto the moment
The time is now
Give up yourself unto the moment
Lets make this moment ... last

And we gave it time
All eyes are on the clock
But time takes too much time
Please make the waiting stop

Hmmm, now he needs to make this cubes much higher, because right next door (south of the Calatrava tower site), this tower is been planned. The site has already been cleared for construction...

I've never seen that one before. There's also another nice looking office skyscraper close to 80SS right by the water; I think it could be going up soon. Towers by the water always make the skyline look grander and we need more of them like the GS Global HQ and this, perhaps to extend the skyline to midtown as much as possible, while projects on the east and west sides reach downtown; In my lifetime, I think we'll see them connect at a point. Plow right through the NIMBY epicenter, boys.

I haven't been to the city since the summer so alot has changed. I can say I've had my finger cross for this building for about 2 or 3 years. And there's nothing saying it not going to be built. If Bloomberg can get all his rich buddies to buy into it, we would be in business. The price tag is high but it's worth it. This is the second best looking building going up in the city behind the MOMA. I wouldn't have said that 2 years ago when it was # one.

GOD BLESS NEW YORK CITY

This is a NEW design for 80 South Street, but it's from a different firm.
The developer who owns the plot still wants to build the first 80 South Street. Doesn't seem like the new one is going anyone:

^ Why build this boring azz building when u can build the one we all want. This other firm needs to go to hell. If they wanted to build the building here, then they should have won the bid. They just need to bring the price down and make more condo's, 20 30 million is way to high something thats not a house. I don't think Trump could afford to live in it. I'm sure he wouldn't see he has his owe projects in the city.

Let's hope they go with the old project.
