Manhattan Luxury Tower Provokes So Much Thought

http://mobile.nytimes.com/2013/05/19/nyregion/boom-in-luxury-towers-is-warping-new-york-real-estate-market.html

There's so much in this one…I recommend it for anyone interested in: 

-the limits (?) of engineering for height of a structure occupied by humans

-income disparity in urban areas

-foreign real estate investment in US

-2nd (and 12th) homes

-the use of video in marketing real estate

-"staff" quarters that cost more than many of the luxury residences in Seattle

-when the cost of wine storage approximates the average cost of a single family home in Seattle

Fascinating.
