Proposed Mixed-Use Tower Integrates Gardens, Urban Farming at 80 South Street: Standing 70 stories and nearly

futuristic, thousand-foot, 70-story tower is being proposed for the 80 South Street site that was once slated for Santiago Calatrava’s equally fantastic “Sky Cube” tower that was a 2008 credit crisis casualty. Recently, Queens-based developer Cord Meyer selected a concept from Morali Architects which would include a series of 3000-square-foot gardens – each with its own urban farm – located within “cut-out” spaces every ten stories. The cutouts are a deliberate reference to spaces between each cube (individual condos that would have sold for $10 million each) in the original Calatrava design.
