But really sometimes the CTBUH is a little behind or just wrong though, likely not in this case of course

The last update via the 45 Broad Construction Update;

SUMMARY
Over the past three weeks, we’ve been surveying and reviewing the site.

WEEKS OF 10/14 + 10/21 + 10/28
We will be coordinating foundation work with contractor, subcontractor and design professionals. There will be no active construction work during this period.



Lots of coordination occurring.

This was last updated on 10/14/2019.

Great details about the background of this building and why it seems to be progressing so slowly... so much detail to get around but no doubt in the coming year as we start to see tangible progress it will be well worth the wait!

Yeah I think its going to turn out okay. I think we are just all being impatient. Remember how long 111 W 57th took. But I cant blame folks for being impatient (I'm one of them) because 45 Broad is stunning. Either if the design with the external bracing or not rises, its still stunning in every aspect.

But its definitely assuring if it starts within the next 6 months. Some of us get paranoid thinking about the market outlook when it comes to towers like this considering the shenanigans going on with One Manhattan Square and the LES towers.

I'm hoping its just administrative roadblocks or lag-time as opposed to market related risk mitigation.

In my part of Italy, "pizzarot" is a colloquial term meaning a bumbling simpleton.

Just thought I'd throw that out there.

I bet 3 years from now it'll say the exact same thing, and the site will look exactly the same

I think it has more to do with the softening condo market. Banks are more hesitant to lend than in the past few years.

From a YIMBY comment:

After what feels like years of pounding in piles, the site looks exactly like it did before. For all we know the pile pounders plundered Pizzarotti, pocketed their pay and pulled off to Panama, Papua or the pampas of Patagonia.

I think Macklowe should buy this site and build his 1,500+ tower here, or maybe 2WTC since I'm convinced neither will see the sight of day at this point.

It's a shame since this building was just gorgeous (2WTC not so much)

Hell no lol. Lower Manhattan is the aesthetic pinnacle of what is Manhattans skyline. Midtown is nice, but aesthetically, downtown is the image of the city. Can't have the obese 432 Park clone with an axe to the face built there. Would really stand out. Not enough height and mass to block it out.

I meant with a better design, ideally.

I think downtown needs something in the 12-1500 foot range to complement the WTC.

I guess we'll have to put this thread to sleep since all we seem to get is ridiculous speculation.
