Now let's hope Related keeps the excitement and momentum going by unveiling their other major proposal: the former Spire site

If we get Amazon, knock on wood, Related might need to go for the full 2,000 feet to feed the increased demand!

Do you mean Architectural Record? Architectural Digest is the one that shows off old-money's pads of questionable taste, much of which looks like Trumpolini's gilded penthouse, at least that's how I remember it.

Trump doesn't really deserve to be compared to Mussolini, since Mussolini straight up had people killed... but you're right, that penthouse is a bit much.

I'm thinking more of a weak dictator with grandiose plans but little to back him more than a gangster. I'm sticking with Napoleon III.

I'm not an expert, but I suspect corinthian columns (rather than doric) are gaudy overkill when they're so stubby, and having them in pairs is just ridiculous here. Also, that couch looks like something you'd buy in a dilapidated shop along Grand near Pulaski or somewhere.

-----

Photogs - The midrise opposite Margie's Candies now has its cores erected pretty high, probably about 3 of them, and currently they are by themselves like free-standing towers. Interestingly, all their openings for each level are framed in wood and for some reason the upper corners of every single opening have triangular pieces of wood that make them all look like church windows or something. You'd almost think they were staging a burned down church for filming a movie or something, though presumably they're just part of the concrete process.
