Recall Julian Schnabel's looming tower on West 11st Street in the Far West Village? Radar drops fresh details on the project that includes a touch of genius so pure we suggest mainlining it: "Schnabel, who will be the building's charter tenant, intends to hand-pick the other buyers himself, presumably to preserve his vision of moneyed bohemian perfection." (Per our previous report, Bono is reportedly in.)
Oh, and interested in what the finished development will actually look like? You'll have to be one of the "ultra-high net worth individuals" on the mailing list for new luxemag 100 Thousand Club, where Schnabel intends to debut the design early next year. Speaking of: anyone got a recent pic of the construction progress handy they'd care to send along? We haven't espied it since August (above), when a friendly neighbor declared, "You're a fuckin' liar Schnabel!!"

DEVELOPMENT UPDATE-O-RAMA BONUS: About a month back, we heard word that purchasers at Philip Johnson's Urban Glass House would "soon" be moving in. Deborah Schoeneman reports that buyers are, in fact, still firmly in limbo. "They don't call with updates," one says. "It's not nice." [Daily Intel]
