Then again, a few years ago , this area was very forlorn, so it was too optimistic to expect something great.

Agreed. 101 West 28th is just down the street and I feel the same. I actually think this is decent to good for this area.

Durst has nothing but weaksauce on their 855 Avenue website: http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...ndRcGmOGe4XGFA


I wonder why they bother holding on to the site since they appear to have little interest in moving the project forward...

I walked by the site a few days ago, it's undergoing excavation, and there are signs with a rendering and the completion date (2015 I believe)so they're actually moving forward with this one.

Walked by here yesterday. It looks like excavation is complete and early foundation work is underway. The building has a really big footprint for how lame it's going to be.

It was never fully revealed but it's gonna look like a simple glass building based on the massing and other reveals.
