CurbedWire: Hotel Le Puck? Hotel Le Gwathmey? Hudson Heights Tower?

New, 10 comments

SOHO—Even though Puck Building (right) rumors have become a rite or autumn, the info keeps pouring in from very reliable tipsters. The latest is that the Puck Building is going hotel, says someone who works in the building who now must find a new office. There's only one question to ask: What Would Toshi Do? [CurbedWire IM]

MIDTOWN EAST?"It appears that there's activity on the site for 400 5th Ave (NW corner 36th/5th Av) for the first time in almost a year... several heavy earth movers plus a few folks in suits standing around on the lot today. Curious to see if the actual building built will be the 57 story condotel designed by Gwathmey Siegel originally proposed." Wouldn't that be something. [CurbedWire Inbox]

HUDSON HEIGHTS?Hey, remember that tower that may or may not be coming to West 184th Street and Overlook? No? Here's a refresher. Now, a tipster writes: "They've moved pieces of heavy equipment into the small parking lot next to the A Train entrance at 184th and Overlook Terrace, and have placed concrete barriers in the street in front of the massive rock outcropping that makes up the lot on the other side of the subway entrance. They cleared the rocky hill of all trees and shrubs weeks ago in order to survey. It sure looks like that beautiful piece of Manhattan schist will be destroyed any day now." All in the name of progress, baby! [CurbedWire Inbox]
