Land values are high so its only sensible to build up instead of spreading out.

Let's wait and see if this will actually become true. I have heard this talk before.

Hines is not a fly-by-night developer. They have invested a lot of money in this project. Moreover, this is a project that will yield an enormous profit.

^ Are you being serious? I don't think the developer would give such news to some random dude mailing them.

Why doesn't Hines source capital from some of the PE firms in NY?

I'm just surprised no one has jumped on this project; as far as high-end real estate goes this is it.

Hines is negotiating with overseas and domestic investors. Overseas investors, however, are more likely to seek a safe, dollar-denominated investment that US investors.
