It may not be a popular hotel or even a hotel at all, but where's your proof that it will remain empty? If occupancy is your qualifier for a building, is Detroit's Central Train Terminal not a building any more? You may claim that this new tower is not a building because it's unfit for inhabitation due to absence of HVAC systems and such, but then again, where's the proof to that? So far, it looks like any other construction site. Sure it's base is still barren, but so is 1WTC's base. I don't get your point.
