With the hype starting to swirl over which restaurateur will snag space in the Freedom Tower, Crain’s brings news that the Four Seasons will be erecting an 80-story structure designed by Robert A.M. Stern to contain a hotel, condos, and a restaurant. The city’s tallest residential tower will open in 2011 at 99 Church Street, a block from ground zero. Taking inflation into account, we predict the martinis will be at least $30 by then.
