design a 740-foot tall hotel that’s going by the name of Hudson Americano (ugh). To be clear, the design right now is strictly conceptual.

It would look decent, but for the cladding.

I don’t think that this nut will be building anything soon.

lol! I completely agree!

btw, Yimby today is saying that this proposal is for the same lot as Kuafu’s Hudson Rise Hotel?? I’m confused.

Sean Ludwick will be lucky to stay out of jail.
