I wonder if its 360 10th Avenue? If so, it would justify the enormous price tag.
I could see it being done too with the enormous floor plates and ceiling heights, and some architectural elements plus mechanical. Although if you ask me, I prefer more supertalls downtown. If it is indeed 80 South Street, that is a plus from an aesthetic standpoint as you mention Hunser, to balance it out.
What excited me is the possible Brooklyn supertall. Between JC and DoBro, my dream of a Hong Kong like feel to NYC is coming true with multiple skylines flanking both rivers. DoBro is like the NYC Kowloon or maybe JC. IDK, but either way, its unreal.
I've been saying this would eventually happen since I joined in 2013.
ShoP definitely deserves a medal. Them and Garry Barnett. We need statues of him because he is NYC's dear leader. Helping build a great city.
