    This facade -totally unlike the facade of One Bryant Park (BoA)- enhances the architectural quality of this tower.

    Exactly, whoever chose the glass at BOA destroyed the whole building. And it wasnt a hard decision. How did they get to make such a huge choice on a billion dollar project.

    Hopefully, all the signage that will be placed will not destroy much of the glass' appearance.

    From the NY Post yesterday...





    YES , the New Year will be a stinker. Even if relatively few pessimistic market-watchers (like this column) are right to say that the world isn't ending, it might feel that way.

    The overall office-vacancy rate jumped to 10.2 percent in the fourth quarter of 2008 from 7.12 percent at the end of 2007, according to new data from Jones Lang LaSalle.

    "The overall vacancy rate breached the 10 percent mark for all property types for the first time since the first quarter of 2004," said JLL Research Director James Delmonte.

    JLL's numbers don't even take into account the new 11 Times Square, which has no tenants yet and will add another 1.1 million square feet to the market when JLL starts including them next month.

    But it's a drop in the bucket in a total Manhattan inventory of 424 million square feet, as counted by JLL.

    Much of this quarter's swollen availability resulted from sublease space, which now accounts for more than one-third of the Class-A Midtown market.

    To be sure, Manhattan is in much better shape than it was even 15 years ago, and few outside the real-estate industry will care how many 100,000 square-foot blocks are up for grabs.

    But at a handful of locations, it will be impossible not to notice that a giant hole or an entire new building stands empty.

    Here's a quartet of sites in urgent need of prayer:

    * 11 TIMES SQUARE:Steven Pozycki's SJP Properties is not pushing the panic button over its 1.1 million square-foot tower at Eighth Avenue and 42nd Street, as SJP still has a year to find tenants before the building opens.

    But it can likely rule out French investment bank Natixis, which was prowling for 200,000 square feet - but more recently lost over a half-billion dollars through investments with accused Wall Street scammer Bernard Madoff.

    Slow? Compared to what?

    One year ago it was barely more than a hole in the ground ...

    Maybe the comment was referring to the past few months when viewed relative to the previous pace of the project. I think it's fair to say that the pace has slowed considerably recently.

    Lots of interior construction is probably going on.

    I think I like those recessed edges every two floors, or otherwise the not-so complex shape of this guy would be dumbed down even more.

    So far this one is living up yo all of my expectations and then some

    It is pretty neat looking. From a PM perspective, it really seems to have been managed well. Organized efficient and timely.
