Cooper Square Hotel No More?
The site has posted numerous pictures (like this one) of the construction and reports that construction crews have been "seen using jack hammers to chew away at those crazy concrete columns" meaning that the hotel could be a tear down before it has even opened.
Which isn't that surprising given all the drama with Gregory Peck and his PeckMoss development company which crashed and burned not too long ago. But to hack down a building that's half-way up is a big deal. Curbed has some ideas as to who or what could be behind this and commenters on the story are saying something was built wrong so they had to tear it down.
Either way, it's just another example of overzealous developers and feuding hoteliers who never seem to get the job done.
