    Reminds me of the Ellicott Square building in Buffalo:

    This is actually good news as the writer points out. If Durst didn't think the tower could get the higher rents in the open market he would certainly come down on the rates for the government...

    Unlikely, but hey you never know...the good news is that with Amtrak involved the terminus would be Penn/Moynihan station.

    Fringe related to viewership numbers. I'm sure any such channel would be highly educated but likely a small audience.

    They almost always do. MTV is a classic example. Food Network also. Now we have MTV2 and the Cooking Channel to right all the wrongs.

    Discovery has some decent shows, as does NatGeo. I like Build it Bigger, Extreme Engineering, World's Toughest Fixes.

    The reason there's no such network is because it's likely considered a...

    It does look a lot like 10 Barclay. I don't like this building, although the gold facade has a nice contrast with the other towers in the picture.

    Go reread it, I didn't say ^. Basic design limits what can be done, that's the truth. Some people here start calling NY a "sewer" and such in this thread for this building! It's going too far.
  11. Poll: They said the same thing about the BofA tower,...

    They said the same thing about the BofA tower, and now that's the example of how to build modern gracefully. It's ridiculous. My opinion of 15 Penn is that it's along the lines of 1WTC, or 4WTC, or...

    What a cop-out. "We're not going to use what we know is a dumb argument like being afraid of tall buildings, so we'll use highly subjective arguments about design to be against tall buildings." So...

    ^

    The lot/building footprint doesn't likely equal the exact amount of ventilation they need, there must be overlap. In order to even be talking about apartments above, you need to have access. ...

    Buying air rights doesn't mean seizing them. There's air rights for sale in almost every block in Manhattan. The MTA wasted an opportunity with that, which was what I got from the article.

    These corners are prime for retail and apartments, to just use them as ventilation and emergency egress is a waste of the space.

    lofter,

    They're apples and apples to me. The point is that once built the new tower didn't ultimately interfere with the old.

    ^ Take a deep breath. The tower is not as sexy as Tower Verre but that doesn't make it 'horrible' and signal the "decline of NY". It's really tall, has a couple interesting elements like the...

    ^ It's a good thing to have an open window on the second station, no matter how small. 1-2 years is a long time.
