    Given the state of West Street last week, we might expect some major design revisions down low.

    An article from two days ago in Crain's NY:

    Downtown Brooklyn building site fetches $40M
    Partners Carlyle Group and Flank Development are buying a 315,000-square-foot property including 210,000 square feet devoted to condos. The remainder will be a hotel.

    http://www.crainsnewyork.com/article...TATE/121109944

    ...The deal comes as Francis Greenburger, the chief executive of Time Equities, has been at work raising capital for a large residential condominium and hotel tower of his own at 50 West St. in lower Manhattan. For that project, which could be 65-stories tall, Mr. Greenburger has hired Cushman & Wakefield's structured real estate finance expert Steve Kohn to put together up to $300 million of equity for 50 West Street, which written reports have indicated could cost as much as $600 million to build...

    Some new information:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/13/re...he-moment.html

    "The developer Time Equities is rethinking the plans for its approximately 62-story condominium at 50 West Street. It is considering replacing a hotel with multilevel retail and, to make the building flood-resistant, moving the mechanical room onto the second or third floor. The developer is also looking at raising the sill height on the ground floor and using floodgates at the entrances."

    CD you missed the meat!

    "As for timing, “50 West Street is looking to expedite its design,” said Jack C. Becker, the executive vice president for design and construction of the Albanese Organization, “and we are hoping that by late spring or early summer to at least get the foundation started.”"

    I hope the design remains the same.

    Wow, and I was just thinking about this site. I walked by here maybe a week or two ago and it was still dead as a doornail.

    Wasn't the top of this project more rounded in the earlier renderings we have seen?

    and getting shorter...
    from curbed:
    "The building that's been planned for years was for a 65-story hotel-condo tower. Now the plan is for a 63-story tower minus that proposed hotel."

    I suspect it's just a counting trick and that the actual height of the building isn't really changing. Foundations were changed slightly, but approved 2 weeks ago. Everything was switched over to Hunter Roberts from Skanska a few months ago. This is probably going to happen quickly and soon.

    Well it's still about the same height, it's 735 feet to the parapet.
