CurbedWire: Arsenal Goes Weirdly Green, Does BCRE Have Any Green?

New, 3 comments

CENTRAL PARK?Yeah, yeah. Tis the season, etc. This is the Central Park Arsenal, now bizarrely lit up or in the words of Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe "a festive seasonal addition to this historic building." The lights are green because the building's been renovated to be a little more green.; Get it? The Arsenal was built between 1847 and 1851 as a repository for munitions." The city bought it in 1857 and got rid of the explosives. [CurbedWire Inbox]

SOHO?Remember the pic a couple of days ago of the dude with the sign at the sight of the Moondance Hotel saying Brack Capital wasn't paying its contractors? Well, our tipster follows up: "In an impromptu sidewalk interview with one this morning, a dentally challenged fellow who seemed to know nothing about the credit crisis, I was told that BCRE is using the mostly finished low-rise building at the corner of Grand and Thompson as a construction office for the hotel project across the street. Apparently they've given up hope for filling the place, despite For Rent banners strewn across the sides." [CurbedWire Inbox]
