BREAKING CurbedWire: Collapse at 290 Mulberry

[290 Mulberry collapse by skittlbrau/Curbed Photo Pool; more pix from the scene.]

NOLITA—The building at 290 Mulberry, whose dubious structural integrity we've written about before, partially collapsed Saturday afternoon. Word from two diffferent tipsters on the scene: a) "the building standing at the 290 mulberry street site partially collapsed into houston today. mulberry is shut down, as is eastbound houston at lafayette." b) "Collapse at Mulberry and houston, southeast corner. Lots of trucks. Fire's out now but half house remains." The mild irony of the FDNY using this building for training notwithstanding, let's accelerate those undulation plans for the site already, eh?
