    It's nice to see these junk buildings getting torn down but what will replace them?

    Newer junk?

    Hopefully, the developers will build something great since the location across from the jewel-like Bryant Park warrants something spectacular.

    Thanks for the info, Derek. It will be nice to see that crappy site redeveloped. Does anyone know how many sf they can build?

    All three buildings are coming down. Same crew, same equipment.
    Milliken down to last 2-3 floors. Other two buildings, one floor behind.

    My main question is what's going on with that back wall?

    Great photo. It's nice to see this sh.itty block redeveloped. Hopefully, we'll be pleasantly surprised by a London-calibre project there.

    That's the lot line wall between the big Milliken building that's coming down and the Spring Mills building to the west, which was recently Landmarked. It appears it's on the lot of the Spring Mills building, which would make it structurally part of that one; it can't be touched without OK from LPC.

    I'd hope whatever new goes up here will fully incorporate that wall into their plan, so that there are no bare edges visible, and also, as it rises, pull back away to the east from Spring Mills (seems there is very little space between the eastern wall of glass at Spring Mills and the lot line).

    Considering that the footprint here is rather small, it seems that a reasonably tall and thin tower could rise here. Might this reach 700 feet?

    Six months ago you calculated it to be ~ 600' ...

    I owe you a cerveza for the valuable information.

    A residential building of about 350,000 sf on this small plot could easily be 600 feet tall.

    At that rate, it should be 800 feet by December.

    I'm relying on someone like you who knows this stuff.

    If it were part of the Springs bldg, then the guys wouldn't be working on it. Especially from the Milliken side. Correct me if I'm wrong.
