    Wow. Must be nice to have an extra 40 story Pelli tower in case they choose to expand some day.

    I wonder if they will illuminate it at all at night, or will they keep it dark since no one is in the building.

    And why wouldn't they want to rent it out? Seems like an aweful waste of potential revenue and badly needed office space.

    Badly needed ? The vacancy rate is currently pretty high. But of course, it's too bad modern offices are left without tenants.

    "Another construction project in Jersey City. I am not sure what it is."

    It's Plaza 10 Harborside, made by Mack-Cali

    I'm sure the light and heliport will still be in operation when the building's done, even though Goldman Sachs isn't going to use it, I'm sure it'll be rented out to other companies.

    I guess that means Flamingo, the restaurant 2 blocks away won't be destroyed. There were plans to destroy it to extend the road so the Goldman workers wouldn't have to be stuck in traffic in the area.

    Staying in New York probably will help Lower Manhattan bounce back (I see that as a matter of when rather than if). Which building do they occupy anyway?

    "I think this could be a real blow to Jersey City. *If Goldman stays, it might set the precedent for the other financial companies to stay in downtown. *Jersey City will have to settle for the support operations of the major financial companies."

    A burst of hope for Lower Manhattan definitely, but not a blow to Jersey City. On a Development map given to me by an architectural developer of Jersey City, there are 2 other companies planning to put up their own buildings in JC, not to mention all of the upcoming Houses and Hotels.

    Best wishes and Power to Goldman, and the rest of the Lower Manhattan community!

    Thanks.
    I love that picture. It clearly reveals the details of the skin.
    I wonder what the hollow top will look like.

    What is that structure in the middle of the building? *Is it scaffolding or the elevator tubes?

    Yeah, It was pretty cold but I had my car close by so I took a few shots before my hands froze. *

    Here's a closeup of GS:

    I've been taking pictures of it for a while, I'll upload the rest when I have the chance.

    I have a question though, what's with the wood panels that're on different parts of the building? They look like they're in place of some of the windows. Anyone know why these things are there?

    From Hill International
    (I guess they do resolutions for construction problems or something, visit the site, the intro is awesome!)

    http://www.hillintl.com/

    Goldman Sachs Building
    Jersey City, NJ

    Hill has been retained to negotiate a crucial Project Labor Agreement for construction of "Project Phoenix," a $1 billion office and commercial building on the Hudson River in Jersey City, New Jersey. The 840-foot building will house the new corporate headquarters of Goldman Sachs, one of the largest investmant banking firms in the world. The building also will include "Goldman Sachs University," hotel/corporate training center for Goldman Sachs' worldwide employees and "Crystal Hall," a glass atrium containing upscale retail and dining space for public use.

    http://www.hillintl.com/index.cfm?pageid=3

    That's awesome, I didn't know that's going to be where they're going to train investors too. And a dining place too? I had no idea how big this project is going to be. I hope all of these things will still be used and/or built even though Goldman has decided not to expand.
