Three reader reports on new developments rising, or set to rise, around town...
1) Gramercy: "Here are some pix of 50 Gramercy Park North and The Hotel (above)—making progress but definitely not going to make what was previously announced as July grand opening." [Hmmm. Let's see what Ian Schrager has to say about that!—ed]
2) Nolita: "Most new development in NoLita is taking place over on the Bowery, but keep an eye on the southeast corner of Mulberry and East Houston streets. The now-empty deli across from the Puck Building will soon be leveled, and from that space and the empty lot behind it will spring an 11-story residential building. Ground-breaking for the building, which will house nine luxury condominiums (including a two-story penthouse), is scheduled to begin this summer. It is being built by Cardinal Investments and designed by ShoP Architects, known for the zinc and glass Porter House in the Meatpacking District. For me, this is the official shark jumping of the neighborhood. I'm off to the East Village, where I hope to join the resistance against the glass tower invasion and NYU dorm explosion."

3) Washington Heights: "First new residential building east of broadway in this neighborhood in a century. It's going to be a 12 story condo building at One Wadsworth Terrace. Bobker Construction. $35 million, 41 luxury condos, $475/sqft. Architect Karl Fischer." [Early details from last year at Real Estate Weekly; current construction pix (seen here) at Drew Kaplan's Blog]
