    Hi,

    I'm not convinced that was a good deal. I understand location, location, location. just not sure if that location was really needed.

    Hey, they need a big building for their expected growth in NYC.

    High tech bunker?
    The building will become the high tech building of NYC.

    I suspect that they had to invest in something. The US government can and does threaten a company with punitive taxes if their retained earnings honeypot gets too large. It is a matter of spending it or risk having the government take some of it away because you didn't spend it. It happened to a company where I used to work.

    Given the direct access to a fiber trunk line, and the fact that they were already a tenant, it is probably a good move for them.

  10. I bet they are going to have a lot of people in that building, possibly reviewing websites like your site and my site.
