Extell's bottom line would look far less impressive without the stats padding of its Upper West Side developments, but the company just can't seem to stop ticking people off up there. This time around, the Sun reports that a community group called the Riverside South Planning Corporation is asking a judge to block Extell's development at 80 Riverside Boulevard, arguing that the glassy towers do not follow the design guidelines agreed to by Donald Trump in the early 90s when he owned the land?guidelines that were passed on to following landowners. The problem? Too much of that sweet, sweet glass. But this little squabble is coming a little late in the game, no? After all, 80 Riverside Boulevard is the Rushmore, and our records indicate that it's been doing its thing for a while now. What's your game, mysterious Riverside South Planning Corporation?
