    Hopefully we'll still get City Point

    Given the design this isn't much of a loss. The height was nice though.

    Not a big deal. The design was ok, but the site will still be developed by another developer.

    Remember that the City Tech part is on a separate site, so the lot where the Piano building would have gone will still be sold and developed. The councilperson mentions that he would prefer an office tower over the Piano residential plans, and I don't disagree.

    Don't worry, you'll get something here too, it will just be delayed and it probably won't be Piano.

    was it zoning that gave so much FAR or was it a deal for air rights from other city tech properties? wondering chances of someone else building that high.

    The Brooklyn Paper is such a joke.

    I believe this site is within the unlimited height special district that was created in 2004, but I could be mistaken.

    Well we may not be getting this tower but we got the next best thing recently - brand spanking new chicken wire fence around the perimeter! So lovely. Thanks NYU!

    City Tech = NYU - prestige.

    Actually City Tech is a CUNY. You guys are probably thinking of Polytech which is an NYU.

    Now I'm confused. I thought City Tech = Polytech. No?
