So since UBS pulled out, can Larry get an anchor tenant in time before they build out the stub?http://www.adweek.com/news/advertisi...tc-move-133788
The bracing as originally designed was graceful and delicate, a great contrast to the size of the tower. Not so anymore. It now looks like a super bridge truss turned on its side. The bulkiness of the bracing negates the tower, and grounds it in a very heavy handed manner.
A lot of the big banks, like UBS, HSBC and Bank of America are in sh.itty shape and don't have the funds to occupy new expensive space.
^Indeed, but UBS is still moving to and consolidating those already in Manhattan. That increases aggregate demand for office space, which is what will eventually fill these buildings.
Is UBS going to close branches?
Don't confuse how crappy BOA is doing with the other big banks. UBS and HSBC were both incredibly profitable in the last year.
they all suck. some just suck less.
You mean like the Republicans doing just about any of the things they'd like to do?
Well you would know all about that.
it's all been down hill since GW. can we get back to buildings now?
1.) Suggesting the Republicans are to blame for the current mess makes me neither an idiot, nor particularly partisan. I'm no lauding the Dems at the moment.
2.) This building is clearly suffering from the concrete workers strike, because it is rather ready for some pouring.
