I believe you're thinking of an old proposal for 360 10th ave before it changed hands:



Manhattan West will not have any direct connections to the High Line. The podium, if it does get built, will be on the northeast corner of 31st and 10th.

But what is the point of the podium if there isn't a connection? Assuming 360 has the same layout I'd be shocked if they didn't make a small bridge to connect the two.

As much as I agree with your sentiment, I think News Corp just jumped ahead in the sweepstakes for 2WTC (in my head of course). I mean, is there a better spot for the most "patriotic" news channel in America but to have its headquarters at the WTC, facing the the 9/11 memorial?!

Fox News needs to be exiled to Bentonville Arkansas where they belong. They don't deserve to be in Lower Manhattan.

Why? Because they don't share your views? Or they don't exclusively promulgate your views? How tolerant of you.

You do know that Fox News is only a tiny fraction of what News Corp entails right? I've worked for 20th Century Fox on several shows and found that not only was it a great place to work, but the politics of my peers was often as far left as Murdoch or Ailes is to the right.

I couldn't have guessed that one! Thanks for the info! Guess sarcasm doesn't translate that well in written form after all.
Anyway I see where this is going, perhaps we should stick to talking about the development at hand before this forum ends up looking like congress.

Lol! Some people would have more of a problem with News Corp vs Al Jazeera??

About News Corp...

Last year in London Murdock consolidated all of his companies under 1 roof at the base of the Shard called the Place. I do expect Murdoch to do the same in NYC.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/n...aby-Shard.html

The only projects that will have enough sq ft for all of his companies would obviously be Manhattan West South, WTC 2 or possibly the Md D's site RW mentioned.

Again, I think 2 WTC would be ideal for Newscorp.

You've expressed this sort of baffling sentiment before, that certain companies don't "deserve" to be in Manhattan... who exactly do you think is going to occupy these buildings?

Al Jazeera is very unbiased actually. Their programming is also stellar. Much better than Sean Hannity shouting for an hour (also known as "American Journalism") on Fox News

Looks like it's going to be another famously productive day at Manhattan West.

They're about halfway through capping the steel on the second span. I don't think it'll be more than a few days till they move it into position. That is, if weather permits. More snow on Sunday!!
