Oh come on guys, the old design was horrible, at least for this spot! It would ruin this side of Manhattan! Looked more like a sculpture than a building if you ask me. =)

Thoes desings are far from final. But at least 80 South Street is far from dead and now progress is being made even if it killed the first design.

80 South Street is NOT canceled. It's only the older design that may be, but...
(Don't forget that the plot has been approved for a supertall.)


APRIL, 23, 2008:

"Frank Sciame of Sciame Construction finally called back after last week's column appeared to note that another developer could decide to use the Santiago Calatrava design for 80 South Street."

dum dum dum

So the Calatrava design still has a glimpse of hope, and there WILL be a skyscraper erecred at 80 South Street.

Although 80 South Street has been approved by the city, the project was later cancelled in April 2008. The building did not sell any one of its 10 multi-million dollar residential cubes, and the developer of the project also listed the declining U.S. real estate market as a factor in its cancellation /1/.

The project is dead:http://www.nypost.com/seven/04162008...own_106788.htm
