  • The Uncertain Legacy of Mayor Bloomberg, Part 2 By Daniel Muhlenberg | April 11, 2012

    As we mentioned in the previous part of this series, Mayor Bloomberg deserves a lot of praise. Our economy hasn’t missed a beat mainly because his policies accounted for the decline of Wall Street by expanding the range of businesses in Manhattan; in media, fashion, the arts, and technology, business owners look at Manhattan neighborhoods as attractive places to conduct business. He invested in the right places. But, in the long run, none of this may matter if Wall Street isn’t fully restored to its former self. And if it isn’t, Bloomberg will be partly to blame. His lack of political foresight, particularly in regards to what is becoming the biggest issue of our time, may prove to be his undoing.

Normally, a story like this wouldn’t warrant much more attention than usual, but this case is special. Macklowe has never been one to be deterred by adversity from thinking big, and the project reflects that mentality, to say the least. The current designs for Drake Tower have this luxury condominium standing at over 1,300 feet, which will make it the tallest residential building in New York City. If everything goes according to plan, the Manhattan skyline will be altered forever.
