    After being slapped with a partial stop-work order about three weeks ago for causing a local street to sink, Extell’s Lower East Side mega-development at 250 South Street appears to be back on track.

    wow, who knew there was that much in air rights available above pathmark. That's a colossal tower for that site, way out of proportion and wrong for the neighborhood (and I am very pro development)
