HGVC New York Mid Town
Well as we are coming up to the mid September has anyone heard any news on the presumed October 1st opening date? My guess is it gets pushed back again. Friends and Fam in NYC have looked at the building and they said it still looks pretty closed up with no new tenants in the retail areas and still has paper over the windows to the lobby. On the positive note they said they did say they saw "some" workers inside the building. Crickets from HGVC so far, probably still awaiting word from Parkland. Horrible situation and not sure how this situations is eventually going to end up for owners.

We were in NYC this past weekend (at W. 57th). We walked past the Hilton Midtown a few times. Late last week there were bicycle barricades across the entrance area out at the sidewalk. Over the weekend those had gone away. I did walk up to the front and see someone inside and some lights on. So, some reason for optimism.

As to the stored in front. I'd seen some of them empty ever since they remodeled the front to add those retail spaces, so I might not read too much into that.
