Following up on yesterday's news of development on East 29th Street, a Curbed correspondent reports: "It looks like St. Francis Church on West 31st St b/w 6th and 7th Avenues has likewise sold its air-rights. Earlier this month, Schuman Lichtenstein filed plans with the Department of Buildings for a 59 story (642? tall) apartment building located at 125 W 31 St." So much for that "life of penance" nonsense, eh?
