Richard Meier's quotes about the coming condo meltdown are priceless. As in, words that whoever writes the book about the Great Real Estate Meltdown of the '00s needs to include them. Says the designer of some of NYC's most expensive condos: "“I think that people who don’t have things under construction are probably reconsidering whether they’re going to go under construction, but if something’s under way, they’re not going to stop." Of his On Prospect Park West, which is 60 percent sold he says: "the next 40 percent will go slowly." Of the market in general: "I think there will be a lot of empty apartments." And the magnificent money shot: "Fortunately, I'm just the architect." Yeah, baby. [Intelligencer/NYM]
