Bloomberg finds London calling
With his time in office winding down, Mayor Michael Bloomberg has reportedly set his sights on London for future endeavors.
The New York Times reported Friday that a city block-size complex called Bloomberg Place will be constructed in London by 2016, complete with two towers connected by sky bridges, pedestrian plazas and perhaps branches of New York restaurants.
The site will be the European home of the mayor’s company and charity, according to the Times.
Bloomberg has also reportedly financed a major art gallery expansion in London, held lavish parties at his home there, regularly dined with politicians and celebrities, and donated to electoral campaigns.
