I would too, but it's expensive and hard to do well. 30 Park Place looks well enough to me, with its use of precast concrete, and is more realistic. Stern has a similar building in Chicago going up now. I can't see many buildings like 220 Central Park going up in many other U.S. cities. Hard to find many places where buyers will pay enough for condos to support a limestone highrise.
