    Agreed - I hate the way it crowds over the set backs of the GE (which is a true beauty).

    Tired of waiting on this one, did a little research, project may be dead, owner is in some talks to sell the air rights to the new owner of the Knickerbocker Hotel. Not a sure thing but this one may not happen

    Does that mean there's a possibility of putting up a larger building where the Knickerbocker hotel currently stands? Would that entire portion of the block, between 1095 Ave. of the Americas and Broadway be torn down?

    no the Bush toweer is staying, they may sell the land where they wanted to build the addition (140 West 42nd street) as for what could be done i dont know, as stated all speculation AP still owns the site for now

    well there are three different owners of the land in question, plus i dont think that equity will demolish 1095 to clear the whole blockout out for them. Building in NYC is very hard, look at One Bryant Park, Durst had to deal with like 20 owners to gather that land up

    No I did not mean to tear down Sam's-1095. That should stay and from the info that CBRE put together on the web site 1095atbryantpark.com it will look even better then if they build a new one,
    I meant that that they should tear down the whole block front along Broadway between 41st and 42nd Street up until the plaza (which they will renovate) at 1095,

    In other the block should ONLY have 2 developments, NOT like it is planed now with the 1095 along 6th and 5 SMALLER BUILDINGS

    1.
    On the whole block front of 6th avenue bet 41st and 42nd side which they are doing now known as Verizon-1095...

    2. The whole block front of Broadway bet 41st and 42nd up until 1095...

    Unhappy

    possible scenario but reality is that either the land and airrights gets sold to the Knickerbocker or they build 140 West 42nd, but as time goes by lesss likely they will build as they are not really marketing the site at all

    Judging by the success of 505 Fifth, which was completely spec I believe, you'd think there is a demand for boutique-size developments like this, let alone the well known need for larger-block projects. Where's the disconnect/ why is the owner looking to bail?

    there is and my opinion a 200,000 sf at this site would lease fast but American properties is a small organization, with few properties and have never undergone a development project

    If you can lease it in "20 minutes" get a tenant and they will build it?
