The last time we checked in with our Lower East Side friend BLUE, construction crews were halfway done installing that distinctive glass. Now, an informed tipster passed along a note from the Corcoran team to buyers in the building. An excerpt:
The building has been "topped off" and the beautiful Blue glass is now up to the 16 th floor with exterior work near completion. At the same time we have been hard at work on the elevators and interiors. We are cautiously optimistic that BLUE will be ready for you to call home by the end of 2006.Adds our tipster, "Offering plan went effective a couple weeks ago, with 24 out of 31 units sold." (Natefind's got the metalistings, include a 766 square foot 1BR for $835,000). N.B. invitation-only welcome party tomorrow night on the common outdoor space; rumor has it Team Curbed may be in the house.
