...The Eighth Avenue whirlwind is breathtaking. On the East Side between 41st and 42nd streets, SJP's 40-story 11 Times Square is rising ahead of schedule, with steel having reached the eighth floor and the concrete core up to 18; curtain wall glass will begin to appear next month.
SJP chief Steven J. Pozycki expects to top the tower off by the end of the year and to complete the entire project by the end of 2009. He's confident of landing tenants and said, "There's a lot of activity right now."
Pozycki expressed relief that his building won't have exterior horizontal rods like those on the New York Times tower next door, where last week two people were arrested after having scaled the building. SJP has its marketing office for 11 Times Square in the building.
"It would scare the hell out of me to have guys climbing a ladder outside," he joked....
Although you can't tell us what, you can tell us if you are enthusiastic about what you know.
(or if you think it'll be a let-down).
1.1 million sf tower with a possibly anchor tenant that is very solid as well as NY State assistance in bring the project into the TS redevelopment area, thus helping get it off the ground like they did when they added NY Times site.
That's great news. This intersection will be unrecognizable in 5 years.
I wonder what the address will be. 12TS?
kliq, how close is SJP to landing a major tenant for 11 TS? What about the retail portion? We need something exciting to anchor that corner.
They had a potential deal for close to half the tower but it seems to have broken down. However it can still be done. They are also talking about two smaller leases as well with a law firm and a financial firm ( non hedge fund)
12 towers in this pic did not exist a decade ago and there are still 2 more to join.

My favourite kind of NY picture, foreground looks empty and deserted with skyscrapers towering nearby in the background.
from those angles nyc looks like tokyo
^ It's all that technoclutter. Looks like an oil refinery.
Have they put up blinds in the Times building? Thought the rods would obviate that.
Supposedly the Times Tower has electronically controlled blinds which all work in unison with the movement of the sun.
I'm sure there's probably a manual override so if someone thinks it's too bright or not bright enough, they can pull up or down the shades.
