Construction is moving with the speed of molasses.
This one might be further along than it seems. I don’t think BP would want to sit on an empty site for a few years or even see this built to ground level like Silverstein. I could easily be wrong but to me the clue is the steel; if the design hadn’t been finalized there would be no reason to put the columns in and there’s no reason to finalize the design if they don’t intend to proceed.
What confuses me is the apparent elimination of the more lucrative residential component from the new design.
THere will be about 4m sf of available space between 50 HY and the Spiral. This PoS won’t rise any time soon.
This tower will move fast. BP doesn’t mess around, and the neighborhood is white-hot with demand. BP is an A+ landlord.
So does anyone know for sure if this is actually going to rise or is this work going to be just for the base and then stop just like 2wtc?
As far as i know, there is no anchor yet?
There’s no way it will rise on spec. As noted, there are around 6m sf of available space under construction.
shooting for LEED Platinum, it will have a sizable price tag to boot.
