Extell Gives It the Ol' College Try

New, 2 comments

The Times checks in on the World Product Centre, Extell's 60-story skyscraper filled with medical industry businesses across the street from the Javits Center, and no one is quite sure if this thing will actually get built. But they're trying: "They have assembled a team of salespeople to begin marketing the 10-year leases that would help secure the financing for the building, focusing their attention on some of the country’s largest health care companies, like Cardinal Health Care, a Fortune 20 company with $90 billion in annual revenue." Also, Gary Barnett totally clowned his partners by refusing to wear the construction helmet in the photo. That's why he's a MAVERICK. [NYT; previously]
