CurbedWire: 201 Pearl Looks Tall, Boring!

1) Financial District: A special Curbed correspondent tips us off to a just-announced project to be built at 201 Pearl Street with $90 million in Liberty Bond financing. According to the press release, it's "a 28-story mixed-use building with 189 apartments, 21,000 square feet of commercial space and 38 parking spaces." A new blog, Pearl Street Revival, has been set up to cover this project and all other downtown development. [CurbedWire Inbox]

2) Chelsea: Mistaking us for activists, an activist-type emails, "Call 311--illegal demo on 22nd Street. Guys on the roofs with pick axes and sledges, no protective gear, no permits, no abatement gear, no sidewalk shed! Two properties, same development: 340 22nd Street (btwn 6th/7th Aves) and 342 22nd Street (btwn 6th/7th Aves). Illegal asbestos abatement. Illegal demolition with out permit. No Construction fence."

3) Williamsburg: A reader wonders, "Do you guys know anything about the abandoned gas station on the corner of North 7th and Berry? It's been boarded up for over a year and has fallen into various states of disrepair ever since. Possible lead contamination to the lot? With the supersize developments going up a block in any direction this is a prime spot for development but as yet there's no permits or signs of demolition." [CurbedWire Inbox]
