To add to my point, look at the huge amount of projects that are eternally stuck in the "approved" stage, if not have construction on hold (yikes!).

The rule of thumb in NYC, if the building isn't there, it isn't there. I remember hearing that when I was a little kid. The WTC takes this saying to the floor count! NYC is like the king of scrapped-tower proposals!
