Big tech companies are eying space in 51 Astor Place, and the Commercial Observer believes that the hulking, boxy building currently under construction has made Noho "turn into a swan." The article argues that the proximity to NYU and Cooper Union students, plus 51 Astor's "infrastructure for companies that you can't find in many other places in New York City" make the building just what the area "has been looking for." "Whatever tenant moves into this building can brand the Astor Place area, like Google branded its neighborhood and AOL branded Columbus Circle." Agree or disagree? Discuss. [Commercial Observer]
