LINCOLN SQUARE—Unlike some university expansions, Fordham's plans for a larger Lincoln Center campus have been quietly progressing with little pushback from the neighborhood. The university's new law school and dorm is nearly complete, and today news hit our inbox that the school purchased nine floors of 45 Columbus Avenue, located across the street from its campus. The new space will allow Fordham to consolidate its off-campus operations into a more conveniently located area. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]

HUDSON YARDS—More details have emerged about the block-long development site near Hudson Yards that just hit the market. The gist is that whatever tower ends up rising there could be giant. By which we mean, up to 100 floors and 1,800 feet high, with 1.2 million square feet of residential, commercial/retail, and/or hotel space. Massey Knakal, which is selling the parcel, issued a release today (warning: PDF!) stating that "Hudson Spire" has an official address of 435 Tenth Avenue, facing the yet-to-be-created Hudson Boulevard, and runs from 501-507 West 34th Street to 510-528 West 35th Street. "Rarely does an opportunity become available to build
a city's tallest tower, especially in New York City, which is known for its iconic buildings. The Hudson Spire could one day become the tallest building in the US, surpassing One World Trade Center," MK crows in its release. "An observation deck would be the ultimate addition."
