in a way, this project is a bummer because it's nuking precisely the sort of active street that the fidi is so hard-up for. pretty much everything south of fulton is a wasteland of road and tower. i'm prepping a move to nyc for next year and one of the major things for me is to make sure that i'm working in mid-town, because i find the fidi so unpleasant to be in. granted, i'm not keen on what this one with bring to the street in terms of retail and that, but assuming a garage ingress, this sort of tower project doesn't improve things. great for skyscraper creeps like us looking at the skyline, bad for the neighborhood qua destination beyond the office hives.
