Scarano throws down the gauntlet re: S. Portland tower

Robert Scarano, via brownstoner commentary, has served up notice to the real estate world. Unlike Santiago Calatrava's 80 South Street megaproject, he claims that his South Portland Tower will actually be built.

He goes on to dig a stake into Brownstone Brooklyn's heart by saying that not only was the address incorrect, the height is also. It's not going to be only 190 feet, but a whopping 360 feet! He notes that this is a good 15 feet taller than J Condo, the currently tallest planned residential building in Brooklyn.

More and more, I think this is going to be on the site of Ashland and Fulton, on top of the fish and chips restaurant, the storefront church and the Hot Yoga place.

Apologies to Sean Meenan for calling him a sell-out.

The guy who posted was obviously not Scarano. The poster was trying to be ironic.

So you think the description was lying about the building being built on a vacant lot? Also, didn't the article in the Brooklyn Eagle about the Ashland tower mention a different architect?
