Um he clearly posted it in the wrong thread, that was for a Korean tower obviously since the article was in Korean.

This building is not 106 floors.
"106 Manhattan high-rise mixed-layer

Manhattan's tallest residential building complex in the country stands at this example. New buildings will be the nation's tallest apartment (520 W 41 Street, bird's-eye view) of the 106-story height of nearly 1100 feet to. This is one of Manhattan's tallest buildings, such as developers, promoting the World Trade Center (WTC) lower than the height of the stories, but many more are on the second floor. New York City is the fourth in the entire building is expected to be high. A total of approximately 1,400 apartment furniture as it was known in its sale of the 208 households in the ordinary apartment. The 175,000 square feet with 300,000 square feet of office and commercial space is also included. Bureau of Building (DOB) after clearance of 2017 begins with the coming construction will be completed in 2020"

It's affordable housing, so it won't be double height floors like ultra luxury residential towers use.
Although it will have an affordable component and it won't be built for the billionaire crowd, there's no way this tower will be a cheap place to live in. It'll probably be priced similarly to the silver towers nearby...or more expensive.

I do think that there will be a couple of hundred units for far under millionaire status... perhaps affordable in this context is more $75,000-150,000 and not truly "affordable" housing which still needs to be addressed but the affordable context is why it's being embraced by otherwise hard core community activists on board with this ... there are going to be to many floors and smaller units than all those ritzy condos, many glamorous units probably higher up but this development differs from the usual solely highest of high end crap. (crap not meaning the amenities, lol but the fawning pampering of billionaires and the out of touch!;)

In NY, affordable housing programs are rentals -- not units that one buys. The overwhelming majority of Manhattan residents rent and don't own.

I awkwardly stated my point, sorry... but the apartments in this development would be rental, not condo. Affordable in this context, like I mentioned would likely be relative but I certainly don't think it means more than $75,000-150,000 in income for its residents. Only 250 or so units will be affordable anyway, with hundreds of units priced at $5,000-10,000 + per month for high end units. I doubt anything here is less than $2,500-3,000 a month though even in the affordable part of the development.
