Before depositing a couple checks this morning, I took the opportunity to ask the question that’s been at the forefront of everyone’s minds. Not “When is Heather Quinlan’s birthday?” (answer: Tuesday) but “When will construction finally be finished in front of Citibank?”
A bank employee told me Citibank leases the space but they had no idea when construction would end; apparently the bank manager gets asked about it nearly every day. I then asked the foreman who did not want to be named; he told me they’d had about two weeks’ delay because of the rain but they should be finished in two weeks. When I asked him to confirm, he said, “Maybe more like the end of October. You should call the management company.” He didn’t know the management company’s name, though I found out through Property Shark that it’s FGP 90 West St., LLC.; however, the number listed is no longer working.
So there you have it—two weeks or the end of October. Hopefully the path will be cleared in time for the 31st and you trick-or-treating devils, though I’d almost bet the house they’ll still be pouring concrete on All Saints’ Day.
