The design is not really special, but still pretty nice for (such a slender ) filler!

As bad as things are, there's no need to make them worse.

New York Times reporters should venture beyond their taxpayer-subsidized, eminent domain-enabled ivory tower on Eighth Avenue and actually look at the properties they write about.

On Sunday, the Times, for the second time in two months, included RFR Realty's Shangri-La hotel on Lexington Avenue in a story about hotel projects where work "has halted," supposedly because it was "bankrolled" by Lehman Brothers.

In fact - as is obvious to anyone strolling by, and as we pointed out on Nov. 4 - foundation work is noisily ongoing.

Developer Aby Rosen will need a construction loan next year but there has been neither a work stoppage nor a retreat from the original plan.

Moreover, Lehman did not "bankroll" the job - its relatively small, $145 million loan was for pre-construction uses. Most of that debt was sold off to ING Finance before Lehman fell, and Swedbank has since taken over the rest of the position

Why do you have to bring up old posts to ask banned members why they do the things they do? Try not to it derails the thread. There was no point to your post.

Wow, I am really upset that this is on hold. I just am enamored at the skinnyness of this tower, it is beautiful.
