rex is the firm behind museum plaza headed by joshua prince-ramus. rex was once the new york office of rem koolhaas' office of metropolitan architecture (oma) but split off two years ago and took with them the projects focused in the new york office, those being museum plaza, the wyly theater in dallas, culture center in oslo, among others.
Thank you for clarification on these issues. I think that architect only had experience on "governmental or endowment" projects no conventional private sector function - right. Why are you promulgating this project when it is evident it is done as is.
Wilson plays no vital role and has absolutely no experience aside from farming and his wife's boutique hotel - and you are talking to his nephew's friend. Let's try not treat this forum as a gossip channel.
Let me be clear - forget waiting a year or two or three. Goldman Sachs will never - fund this project as is - or I'll buy everyone on this thread a steak dinner.
Again, the developer is "GONE" "MIA" - Goldman is trying to survive and no financing institution will fund such gross non performing assets again - even in a design stage even when the owners are naive enough to begin site activities, period, turn the page!!!!
I'm just f-ing pissed they have screwed up our river front, Poe, Wilson, Brown, Greenburg - the whole lot - after the tax payers have spent millions over the years to create a park and aesthetic front door to the city.
