CurbedWire: Bow Down to the Lord

1) Miscellany: From the Curbed inbox to you, a useful bit of advice:

I am a huge fan of the work of Norman Foster and have noticed that Curbed frequently refers to him as Sir Norman Foster. UK titles do not have to be used in the US, but since you're using them, Norman Foster was actually made Baron Foster of Thames Bank a few years back. As such, he should be referred to as "Lord Foster." I'm not his publicist or anything, I just think Lord Foster sounds cool - like Darth Vader.Sure, either that, or Baron Foster of Thames Bank. [CurbedWire Inbox] 2) Propspect Park: Regarding Richard Meier's burgeoning On Prospect Park development, a tipster emails: "Just heard from broker, sales office opening pushed back from 10/26 to 11/2." [CurbedWire Inbox]

3) Flatiron: "Has Curbed heard anything about what the Haddad trailers are doing on 23rd Street between Fifth Avenue and Sixth? They've been parked the length of both sides of the street all week. Must be filming a movie in the area- happen to know the scoop, or when they're going to stop plugging up traffic?" [CurbedWire Inbox]

4) Williamsburg: New development alert: "I looked at an apartment at 145 Borinquen Place in Williamsburg. It was being shown by TreeTop Development and they are renovating the entire building. It is all vacant. They mentioned that they are doing another rental project on South 3rd in Wmburg too." [CurbedWire Inbox]
