    I think NT stands for "not telling."

    Hi, amigos.

    Is there any news about this development? I walked by yesterday and saw that scaffolding is being erected.

    As part of there West SIde plan the city has marked that lot as a office tower or a hotel, so i have no tidea why he is saying he cant tell. Its not going to be starting anytime soon with the Milstein lot still vacant, they have to get that one going before a new one

    I thought that the guys who bought the Duane Read site bought the rest of the buildings also and were going to make a residential tower.

    The city and state tranfered this site as part of the TS redevelopment project, it will be office or mixed-use. It may include residential but only as a portion of it

    This site needs to be considered in the long term and office or mixed-use is the right zoning.

    Your right Stern however there have been a few sites used for residential that should have been office, i truly hope that that site on lexington and i believe 51st is a office developmen, that location could attract so many good hedge funds its not even funny. Thats an area that NYC must go after as all these Hedges are basing in fairfield county

    I stopped by one of the stores on this site and asked if they were going out of business, they said they were not so I have to assume that no demolition is happening anytime soon.

    Is this a developer's plan or someone's dream building?
