    Thanks, Roldan.

    PS: That school has been empty for over a year. It relocated to Chelsea.

    That's interesting. There are still all the accoutrement of a school inside (kids drawings in the windows, lights on, etc etc). I wonder if someone else is using it temporarily.

    Doesn't 220 W58th have red X's painted on its facade which signifies that it's vacant?

    Oh it has the Xs alright, that's been the weirdest part about the whole thing this entire time. Anyway, no scaffolding on the school yet. All kinds of scaffolding on the backs of the 57th st facing buildings. I'll keep an eye out.

    Asbestos abatement has started on the school building on this site.

    And the netting is back up on the facades facing W 57th.

    Hopefully, Morton Williams will leave 225 W57th soon. Who even goes to that overpriced POS when a far nicer Whole Foods is located around the corner?

    Extell filed this with the DOB on July 1, 2011. It seems to state that they'll be demolishing everything above the third floor of 225. Hopefully, on-going demolition work above the store will prompt MW to vacate. Barnett should hire Macklowe the schmuck to strong-arm MW.

    There was an article a few weeks ago in which Barnett stated that demolition would start soon, but he still has not decided what to do with the site (e.g., all condo/hotel or condo/hotel with some office space). I assume that he will not build all office space. I hope that it's just a condo/hotel because he has enough air rights to build a 1,300'+ residential. Maybe on this site we could get the traditional de Portzamparc design we all hoped for at 155 W57th.

    Finally moving ahead with demolition. The lower wing is already gone.
