Arrested Development: 250 West 55th Tower Halted!

New, 14 comments

For all those who dreamed of another glassy, boxy office tower for midtown, look away! This afternoon, construction has been halted on 250 West 55th Street. Seems a law firm with interest in the space ended up passing, leading developer Boston Properties to stop work on the SOM-designed tower. And what of the construction site itself? Reads a press release, "Construction of foundations is well underway at the site and the Company intends to complete them to facilitate a restart of construction when it deems it propitious to do so." In other words, fans of giant gaping pits, rejoice!
