$477/ft not including land cost. Ouch.
Office space cost for various cities: Web Link
"aesthetic touches...boosted the price to $37.2 million" That's an extra $14 million for "aesthetic touches". Double ouch. That pushed the cost to $755/ft.
$37.2 million for 110 staffers is $338,181 per person.
So that's what life is like for the these Wall Street one percenter types.

It's a beautiful building, and I applaud the fact that they've created landscapes around the building rather than viewing green space as a waste of development opportunity. I just hope enough rainfall continues to fill those underground tanks.

It's amazing what you can build when you have an unlimited budget.
