We did it! We the people. President Obama pushed for it, then-Mayor of NYC Michael Bloomberg supported it, the media actively campaigned for it the elites in their increasingly fragile ivory towers stumped for the mosque.
But the people stood up and fought it and won.
Hey Obama, YES. WE. CAN.
Ground Zero mosque officially scrapped Market-maker skyscraper planned for controversial site The infamous Ground Zero mosque debate is officially over. A market maker 70-story skyscraper will soon break ground at lower Manhattans 45 Park Place, ending any possibility of resurrecting plans for the religious building.
Imam Feisal Abdul Raufs proposal four years ago to create a 15-story Islamic cultural center near the site of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks sparked a national uproar. Developer Sharif El-Gamal of Soho Properties, who was originally on board with the plan, rendered the whole debate moot by opting to build a 667-foot condominium tower for the property instead, Crains New York Business reported Friday. El-Gamal told Crains his skyscraper will include 5 full-floor units of 3,200 to 3,700 square feet, and average prices higher than $3,000 a square foot.
Every day that weve been waiting, the market has been getting stronger and showing incredible signs of resilience, Mr. El-Gamal said, the magazine reported. The appreciation and absorption this market is showing is unprecedented.
El-Gamal put aside plans for the Ground Zero Mosque in 2011 after he had trouble finding financial backers, but until now was unsure what would take its place. Public records show he bought the lot in 2009 for $4.85 million, the magazine reported.
The developer expects to break ground on the project just two blocks from where the former World Trade Center towers stood in early 2016, Crains reported.
This is great news! Why was there a change in plans?
A 150 year old pet sematary was under the site?
Condo plan can still have a mosque put in on the roof, if it’s a Muslim building it.
Mussies screaming racism in 3...2...1...
“Why was there a change in plans?”
Because they now have millions of them coming into the West through our front doors - and they have to put all of their effort into organizing and arming them.
Think I’ll celebrate by eating some bacon.
Forgive me for noticing, but the owner has a vary Moslem-like name.
So let’s not be so sure yet.
Indeed. These people have the patience to play a long game.
