    It's definitely not land banking. I just hope they develop the site smartly and timely.

    Would have been nice to see the area around the stadium develop first, Westinghouse and Lincoln Motel sites are development ready. I believe that in the long term, the stadium could have become an...

    What's not ever mentioned is how nearly every cost overrun for the entire WTC rebuild was funneled into this project. People also fail to mention that the three temporary PATH stations are also...

    Those were just a concept for the NHA. Notice the warehouse still labeled as a children's museum. We haven't seen the new design yet, and we won't until after the RFQ.

    South bridge is to remain the same, they're going to match the cladding that already exists.

    A building this size on this site has been in the master plan from the beginning.

    This would be very out of scale near the train station. Downtown has much smaller scale buildings, for the most...

    Since when would a casino's location have anything to do with race? Most employees of Atlantic City casinos live outside of Atlantic City, many of them outside of even Atlantic County.

    The problem with a casino in Newark has nothing to do with crime. The design and function of a casino is not a beneficial development to an urban area. The only reason a casino would want to locate...

    Tearing down that baseball stadium would be a huge mistake. If properly managed, that stadium could be an asset to the people of Newark. It doesn't need a minor league team in the meantime, but...

    Not sure if anyone agrees with me, but I'm kinda glad the tower "turned its back" on the memorial. I actually feel that the best looking angle is that corner. It at least has the look and feel of a...

    I have not yet spoken to anyone who likes this tower, both architecture enthusiasts and non-enthusiasts. This is the type of design you'd expect from a mediocre 2nd or 3rd year studio project.

    I like it. It only takes up one corner of the entire block (maybe a quarter of it?). It's nice to have blocks that are made up of buildings with different uses, facades, and characteristics (those...

    The wind spray is much greater in that area, likely because of swirls created by the form of 1 WTC. So whether or not it's the bromine or something else in the water, it is in fact what caused these...

    There are chemicals in the memorial pool water to prevent bacteria growth. The north pool experiences more wind spray than the south pool, ie the swirling winds cause the water to mist into the air...

    I believe that's true, and is the reason why it was built to the height it was for the time being.

    Until I see photos of rats and/or droppings, I'm not buying any of it. Do rats really make their way 20+ stories up into vacant spaces with not a lot of food?
