A New Drink on an Old Building

The Blanchard Building located in Long Island City has a total area of about 1,900 m2. I was unable to find out how old it is exactly but I'm sure it was a sweatshop at some point during the previous century. It is located in the very industrial area of LIC directly across from midtown Manhattan. Two years ago it was on sale for 20,000,000USD, but not sure who and if anyone bought it. At first I wondered how a new drink could afford to advertise on such a huge space, but then I found out this new green tea drink (claiming to burn calories?) is just another product of the Coca Cola company.

How hard is it to brew one's own tea?

Isn't it amazing what people will pay for someone else to do.
