Developer says 51 Astor Place will be fully leased by the end of January (2014)

Missed this post from Friday in the Observerin which 51 Astor Place developer Edward Minskoff, who built the whole thing on spec, sounded confident he'd have the place full soon.

“By January 30 we’ll be 100 percent leased there, and that’s all I’ll say,” he told The Commercial Observer today, declining to give any additional details.

In October, 1stdibs reportedly signed a 15-year lease for the entire third floor. And there are also rumors that Twitter is in negotiations for space here.

I just walked by this monster and it is hideous. I miss the open courtyard, with the coffee shop, and the Cooper Engineering building. This is a big mistake, and we can't take it down.

This is a bizarre description of that area.

"...The LEED Gold-rated 51 Astor Place towers above the rest of the neighborhood, where a 24-hour McDonald’s, Ray’s Pizza and an array of small shops and restaurants harbor strong foot traffic..."
