Interesting. That’s one way of looking at it. Others, I think, see it as a huge government handout. Corporate welfare as it were. And although that might be a mistaken interpretation of things, opposition on such grounds hardly counts as “Marxist.” Quite the opposite I should think!

But in any case, back on topic!

I deleted all of the rubbish with Amazon. Let’s keep this about CPT. Whats done is done. The Amazon thread will reopen if there is real news about it.

Now 21 floors above the mechanical floor, 4 floors to the setback. Near 1,370 feet, 88% up

Another 200ft is insane.


#2021

Yeah i seriously can’t believe it. Just the last 200 ft of this building would be the tallest building in every county except one here in Wisconsin. 200 ft in New York is different than 200 feet anywhere else.

Green lines are floors above the setback
