    Surprised no hotels are being built there. Seems like a more desirable location to stay than where all those new hotels are a mile to the NE

    Shouldn't the choice be what's better for the site, rather than what site is better for hotels?

    I wasn't talking about this site in particular, but the entire area.

    There are dozens of hotels in Long Island City area, the vast majority of which were recently built or under construction.

    I know that. I was wondering why there weren't any around the Hunters Point South/waterfront area. None that I know of anyway.

    The reason people stay in LIC is because of the affordable rates. The land prices on the waterfront would negate that advantage

    I'll give them, they definitely went unique on these. Incidentally, was there any action at the next phase that Related is building? It would be the block south of this one.

    Ok, here's pics from, uh, September 11th. Don't know when I'll be in the city again.

    The view up Center Blvd.

    yes they are. The entire complex of high rises is sterile and desolate. The only redeeming quality is location and park facilities

    How come we can't build walkable, vibrant neighborhoods from scratch anymore?

    You give them a blank slate and all they create are these sterile, uninteresting, dead blocks.

    Even when they try retail on the ground floor, it just doesn't have the neighborhood feel to it.

    You won't get that neighborhood feel not only because of the architecture but because corporate stores are the main tenants renting the retail spaces. Banks and CVS won't give you that feeling.
