And this site has such a crappy history of deception that it is easy to imagine an abutter who might want a little payback.

I've mostly stayed away from this thread because losing the old facade made me sad, but I have to admit I really dig this. Will go to shit quickly if they start shaving dollars, though.

Provided there's no changes here, I think that a decent facade analogue is rising in Lower Manhattan at 25 Park Row. Just to give an idea of what we might see.

Well said. This thing should be hitting 360', instead of 236'.
Worse still, the scam oversight committee will now commence with the grandstanding, delaying and extorting....
