Because we haven't posted anything about the IBM Watson building in like 3 weeks
The April issue of The Real Deal takes a look at how the leasing came together for 51 Astor Place/the IBM Watson Building … if you're interested …
The building still has some 75,000 square feet to lease … not to mention the three retail storefronts, which total roughly 15,500 square feet.
Developer Edward Minskoff "estimated that the last of the office space would be spoken for in about 45 to 50 days. The building is seeing about five or six tenant showings a week, sources said."
Said Minksoff: "There is an old saying that an ugly building that is 100 percent leased is beautiful, but a beautiful building that is 100 percent leased is gorgeous."
And now we're off to brush up on our old sayings…

It certainly is shiny!
And sometimes a crappy ugly building is just a crappy ugly building, fully leased or not.
BOW DOWN BEFORE ME, CRETINS!
Hideous monstrosity. Look away.

Came back to the old neighborhood, to visit Mom's and was greeted by yet another heartbreaking symbol of disrespect to our town. This fucking ugly thing full of similarly dull but shiny people. (Some people are ok I guess, but tell me im wrong)
In this photo it looks like a prison from the future.
