The hype over Santiago Calatrava's 80 South Street Tower O' Penthouses is kicking into high gear. We noted earlier this week that the project's website has launched, as have a slew of newspaper ads (including a double-spread in Variety), all of which leads Triple Mint to conclude, "a flurry of expensive advertising seems to suggest the project is alive and well." The Post's Braden Keil adds that the 10 units will range in price from $29 million (which we'd heard) to $50 million (which?wow?we hadn't), with average square footage prices well above $5,000 per square foot and monthly combined carrying charges for maintenance and taxes from $34,456 to $36,038.
