Industry veterans say lower-end retail shops between the newer properties are ripe for development
Please no more pedestrian killing buildings.

Eighth Avenue is filled with upscale restaurants that usually cater to tourists or the transient office worker. Remember, those Duane Reades and Chase Banks that line every corner up until Columbus Circle?

Yeah no one wants those. Why should another bodega be replaced with a generic drug store?

Is this Extell building exciting? Absolutely.
