CurbedWire: Christian Science Gets Current, Nouvel Is Hot

GREENWICH VILLAGEA downtown church has gotten a makeover. A tipster writes, "They are finally removing the austere 80s facade of the Christian Science Church on McDougal between 8th and Waverly in the Village." [CurbedWire Inbox]

CHELSEAOn the heels of last night's kick off party at Jean Nouvel's 100 Eleventh Avenue, we have an early report of brisk sales. A special Curbed correspondent writes, "I have shown the building to a customer of mine. The sales office features an incredible 12 foot high and maybe 20 ft long mock up of the windows that will be used...my understanding is that with signed contracts and contracts out, they are practically 50% sold already."

UPPER EAST SIDEAfter the press release comes the building. A tipster reports, "Scaffolding is going up on the 79th and third corner this morning. Your web site mentioned the announcement. I wonder if the ink is even dry." [CurbedWire Inbox]
