Muss can't cut the mustard at Sky View Parc

From Crains:

Related Cos. is being tapped to manage sales and leasing for Sky View Parc, the massive mixed-use complex in Flushing, Queens, being constructed by Muss Development.

Sources said that Muss' financial partner, Onex, a private equity firm that has invested $66 million in the project, has been frustrated by pace of activity at the 3.3 million-square-foot development and demanded changes be made. Both partners approached Related, which has yet to sign a contract, although the deal is imminent, sources said.

The project features six residential towers and a rooftop park set atop a three-story, 800,000-square-foot shopping center. The first three towers are close to being completed. Muss would not comment, but in a press release last year, it said 70% of the 448 condo units in the first building were sold. It also stated that 30% of the units in the second building were sold. Sales hadn't started on the third tower, according to media reports.

These are "luxury" amenities to Asians who have lived in far worse conditions in the parts of the world they came from.

Muss is marketing to them.

His promotion materials have touted the good "feng shui" aspects of the project.

Ah...the tranquility of the "fragrant" mud flats of the Flushing Creek at low tide!


At least they're well built not like a Tommy Huang project.

And so to pander to developers and worship at the alter of multiculturalism (i.e. local politicians geting bought off), Flushing must be turned into a replica of a dirty, overcrowded southeast asian slum city. And for those of us who don't like what we see, who've lived here our whole lives, for generations even: F@#* YOU!! GET OUT, YOU DON'T BELONG HERE!!!

Imagine how appalled Tommy Huang was when he first got here.
Flushing with low-rise buildings, one and two family homes (some of them over 100 years old, OMG, OLD buildings??!! These round eyes are idiots!!)with front yards, lawns and trees and some stupid old theater??!! The horror, THE HORROR!

There you go - put on a show for the arriving natives at Main Street.

Leave the bathroom door open, too.

Love the name of the place - the only place to look is up that looks reasonable, but be careful what could drop down from the jets scrapping the roof-top overhead.

Really, tower one will fall down by the time tower 3 is started.
The rust stains and chinese sheet rock and non-union labor made sure of that...
