CurbedWire: Starchitects Get Comeuppance Edition!

UPPER EAST SIDE—A report to the inbox at 8:30pm last night: "Robert A.M. Stern's Brompton on 86th/3rd (rendering, right) is on fire. And I am not referring to the sales. It is actually on fire. I just walked by. Seems like the concrete forms and some lumber on the 3rd floor is burning. Fire department is only a half block away, so I am sure it will be taken care of." How this will affect The Brompton's race to the top versus the dark forces of The Lucida remains to be seen. [CurbedWire Inbox]

PROSPECT HEIGHTS—Speaking of Brooklynites buying in Brooklyn, here's a fun little tidbit from a tipster: "Has anyone mentioned to Curbed—or, for that matter to the those eager buyers—that the ceiling heights of the residences at On Prospect Park are less than 9 feet? They're about 8.5 feet. Maybe that is an expression of what Richard Meier really thinks of Brooklyn?" [CurbedWire Inbox]
