WHAT A WONDERFUL TOWN

  • Comment
ASTRAGAL

Ever wondered what happened to Battle McCarthy's plans for a vast wind turbine on top of New York's Freedom Tower?

Thought not. Here's the answer anyway. The engineers wound up being owed a small fortune by the developers after the plans were dropped. Settling in 2004 in a desperate bid to stay aoat, the practice agreed to 'forget' £200,000 of the cash expected.

Be wary of American property tycoons bearing impossibly cool commissions.
