Stardate 60340.19 - View Blocker?


So here is what the new Slone-Kettering Cancer Center building (a new breast and imaging center) going up across the street is supposed to look like once it is completed. It is supposed to be 15 stories high, with mechanical equipment on 16. It is going to be 238 feet tall and will consist of 241,000 square feet. We're on the 14th floor (actually the 13th, but there is no 13th floor on our building), so we will look into the glass portion of the center. There are some off-sets from the street (on the 10th and 14th floors), so we're hoping that all of the natural sunlight is not going to be blocked from our apartment.

Of course, it won't be completed until first quarter 2009. Excavation has started, and will run until early October. The foundations will go in starting around August and will last until December. Erection is scheduled to begin in January 2007, and will last 2 years.

Pretty sure you're suppose to see a doctor if they last longer than 4 hours.

Tame complaining I must say, though I don't know if there is a special protocol when the building that may make your life miserable is a cancer center. You could say things twice -- for the cancer center you could say "we're hoping that all of the natural sunlight is not going to be blocked" and then say "if a 238 foot jail were going to be built across the street from our apartment I would throw grenades at the parts shading our apartment from the sun."
