    Default Bloomberg Tower (Alexander Tower)

    My company was involved early on in the pre construction peruiod. I know the whole project team at Bloomies. I will make a call and take the final design mystery out of this chat.

    Thanks alot Brain.

    I had a friend that said he could get me into the Bloomberg site, he was a crane operator, it would definetly be cool to get a view from the cranes.

    Brain what was your position there?

    Wow...Gulcrapek

    Great cam view looking down on the site! *Really gives one an idea of the design and set backs. *

    Hopefully, the tower's height will be at least 850'...we will be waiting w/ baited breathe from the..."brain".

    Slender's good. Right, Fabb?
    Yes, sure.
    As long as it doesn't look like an anemic dick.

    Wow. I guess that remark was more memorable than I thought.

    Right. But that was easy.
    Now, what kind of memorable remark could you make about that one ?

    Well, I've already said it looks like one of those icy dildos you occasionally see in Penthouse. But you don't remember, so it must not be a winner.

    Aw. Come on guys. Stop thinking like that.

    I like the slender design of the tower also, but still wish it had a spire of some kind, for more of a presence on the skyline. *A cousin to the Chrysler...

    I live about 8 blocks from the bloomberg building and often take the 59th and Lex subway to work. Any word on if the station will be revamped and incorportated into the base of the tower???

    btw, just converted from skyscraperpage.com, there was alot of mention of wirednewyork so decided to give it try. NYGuy pointed it out

    That would be real nice of Bloomberg, its unexpected though, they will be adding another 4000 employees to an already congested station.

    Yeah, that station is incredibly crowded as it is -- Especially in July and August on the platform with a thousand other people, it's as hot as Africa down there. *

    I'd love to see to see a crown on this building.
