NEW YORK | 57th & 2nd | 60 fl | Duplicate

by SOM

The city will permit a private developer to build a soaring residential tower on a low-rise, under-utilized city-owned site in Midtown in exchange for hundreds of millions of dollars that will be used to build at least two new city schools.

wow!

but how can this be economically viable if the developer has to pay "hundreds of millions of dollars" in order to get the permission for that ...

I don't know, but it seems like one of the schools is already designed and it looks great.

I like this tower. I'd like to see a few more angles though.
