Some Citi Field development porn, hot off the wire.
COLUMBUS CIRCLE—Let's get started with some de-luxe dish. A reader writes, "I was just reading my House Beautiful magazine from April 2007 and interior designer Marhall Watson is being interviewed about an apartment he did on the 74th floor of the Time Warner Center and says, 'However, despite this spectacular address, the interior of the apartment was shabby and very poorly laid out. The materials we sloppy and of the lowest grade. It was very much a 'white box' apartment set inside a trapezoidal shell.' The purchase price of the apt was not mentioned, but I can only imagine what his client paid for her 'white box' in the sky!" [CurbedWire Inbox]
PARK SLOPE—Anybody got the skinny on the Vermeil on Sterling since the Brown Harris broker on the project was let go? Here's a set of questions to get you started, courtesy a tipline querier: "Who is handling the sales? Were there more price reductions? Did any units even go into contract? Can the developer even finish the project? Any info would be appreciated." [CurbedWire Inbox]
HARLEM—This just in from our favorite mind-exploding development at 125th and Park: "A new sign has gone up for Harlem Park." It's on! [CurbedWire Inbox]
