When we say downtown, we mean the Fidi right? I always thought SoHo was downtown.
Most of the small, winding streets downtown are de facto pedestrianized.

That's true at the moment, but it seems that millions of sf of stores, etc. are coming to downtown.

Nonsense. There are restaurants all over Lower Manhattan. Stone Street, the Seaport District (upland area, not the tourist pier) and others scattered about.

Anyway back on subject.

I think I missed it - do they build it all the way to the roof now? Did they find tenants?

Well, not exactly. They are in serious talks with two major companies that would like a lot of office space, however nothing was signed so far

i think since both companies want a decent amount and they only need 400k sq ft to start tower 3 i think they should send the other company to tower 2 so that bad boy can start to, i know im a genius

If you were developer, I don't think it's a good idea tell companies what to pick and where. You offer them what is available, and they can pick and choose.

That's true. In Slovakia we have a saying that says "Our customer is our master." A good businessman gives his customers as much freedom as possible

What a weird place to want to move to. You don't mind that it's a hot, suburban hell?

What's so weird about it? Have you ever been there? The scenery and geography in AZ is stunning. More spectacular than any skyscraper. So Phoenix is a sprawling metropolis. So what. Some of you urban elitists on this site and laughable.

Love how you bash conservatives as being selfish yet you claim to be the Illuminati leader. The Illuminati is all about selfishness. Selfish control over everyone else. Moron.
