    yea as someone has said...
    citytech = cuny
    polytech = nyu
    we actually share the same bookstore though :shrug:

    they literally are side by side... the citytech gymnasium, which is where this building would have been built, is right beside the poly dorms..
    i wish it would have come to fruition. i would have something nice to watch outside my window instead of the embarrassing 111 lawrence st rising across the commons

    Developing Story: soil stability testing has resumed in front of Klitgord.

    There are some recent DOB filings but they appear to relate to the Polytech building that went up several years ago.

    Curbed:
    DoBro's Grand Piano Downsized to Casio Keyboard


    It wasn't so long ago, believe it or not, when visions of new 100-story Brooklyn skyscrapers danced in the heads of developers and their pet starchitects. Heck, even academic institutions wanted in on the fun, but as the world's economic outlook started to sour, so too did the plans for a Renzo Piano-designed academic/residential mixed-use tower brought to Downtown Brooklyn by Forest City Ratner and CUNY's College of Technology. But now Brownstoner notes some soil tests being performed around the property, as well as some serious tax lot shuffling. Does the City Tech Tower have new life? Er, not quite. According to the Brooklyn Eagle, there will indeed be a new City Tech building, only it will rise eight or nine stories. "Academic Building 1," as its called, will replace an existing auditorium at Jay and Tillary Streets, adding further insult to injury to developer Bruce Ratner because, oops, there goes another place the lowly Nets could've played in.

    Well if it's ugly, at least it won't be big ugly.

    These are two separate projects. Curbed is wrong (as usual).

    There's the City Tech academic site and the City Tech mixed-use site. They share the same block.

    This is the academic site. The mixed-use site was the proposed tower, but nothing will happen on this site for a few years, until the economy recovers.

    So it will just sit vacant with a construction fence around it?
