NEW YORK | 45 Park Place | 665 FT | 43 FLOORS

They should let people go up since it hasn’t been in use or completed. But of course I know the logical reason why they don’t. And 80 stories…sounds like they want to make the headline bigger

And no progress has been noticable, but a lot of inspections have happened this year even from FDNY themselves

Pics taken by me today from my office. Maybe when I retire in 40 years it’ll be complete.

The mechanical core at the center of each apartment looks like it takes up more that half the square footage of floor space. The good thing is that there will be great big windows (and view) from all sides of the building.

I wonder what is keeping progress stalled on this project? Thanks for the nice progress photos - or should I say NO PROGRESS photos. :wink: Thanks either way.

I look forward to seeing THIS at your retirement party. :rofl:

Here is some recommended reading for those of us who like to understand the ‘root causes’ of what ails us, and our society. It bit off-topic, but worth sharing. Mostly about politics - but still very relevant to how we build our cities.

Excerpt - Everyday Freedom | Book by Philip K. Howard | Official Publisher Page | Simon & Schuster

Something basic is missing in our culture. Americans know it. Nothing much works as it should. Simple daily choices seem impossible, or fraught with peril. In the workplace, we walk on eggshells. Big projects—say, modernizing infrastructure—get stalled in years of review. Endemic social problems such as homelessness become, well, more endemic.

I’m guessing financing is holding this back.
