    The problem is that once the market bounces back, a lame box will most likely still be built here. The only difference will be that the box had been delayed a few years.

    So sad. Reading back through this thread, we all saw this coming. Let's all take comfort in the fact that WiredNewYorker's premature negativity of proposed construction projects rarely fail to ring...

    The good news is that the developer is still planning to build something on the site. The bad news is it will apparently take an additional 7 months before equipment even begins moving in and in the...

    I think my issue is what fronts the street, not what is behind buildings and away from view. The previous parking was broken up by a variety of buildings and there was no part of it that continued...

    ^That isn't really correct. There was a parking lot there before but it took up maybe 25% (not 50%) of the current lot. Check back on the first few pages of this thread for an overhead view showing...
