Standing 1,000 feet tall in the wastelands surrounding the Javits Center and Hudson Yards, developer Extell's World Product Centre made for quite the flashy renderings. Alas, that's as far as this big guy will make it, the Post's Lois Weiss writes. Call it an educated guess. The anchor tenant in the Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed skyscraper, a healthcare products marketer, has pulled out, and the scheduled groundbreaking has come and gone with nary a mention nor new permit filed. (In fact, there's a Stop Work Order on the property.) The site used to house the Copacabana, and now its replacement is doing the cha-cha right out the door. Put 'em in a body bag, Johnny.
