We don't even know the final heights and designs of these towers. We only know the total sf that Brookfield can build on the site.

More importantly, they need to get tenants which won't be an easy task considering that Related is offering space at a signicantly lower cost in a much nicer (albeit nearby) location.

Related's site will have tons on lavish park land on the Hudson River and a lot of nice retail. Also, it will be at the terminus of the new Hudson Blvd park.

difficult to get tenants = not likely to happen

Hardly. It's just that Related's HY will happen first. The financial capital of the world always needs new space.

Im not so sure about that. They will definitely have parts that occur simultaneously, but the Coach tower is obviously going to start first of all.

Brookfield has been taking things pretty far. There are already discussions on buying out the south and north foundations.

I can't see any company leasing with Brookfield until Related's cheaper space is filled first.

For a start, you don't live in dubai or even a particularly tall area and I also completely disagree with you're point. Like a poster said before, he is still amazed by the height of even 7WTC despite probably seeing the likes of ESB everyday.

Although most here want megatalls everywhere, most people living in NYC wouldn't give a flying .... if there were 10 BK or 10 WTC7.
