CurbedWire: Lucida's Broken Window Theory, Avery 90% Sold

New, 10 comments

UPPER EAST SIDE?The WindowGate scandal at the Lucida is a controversy that refuses to die. Actually, there's no real controversy, but "WindowGate" just sounded catchy. The latest: "Photos of another 'broken window' at the Lucida (or perhaps the same one) reveal that the curtainwall windows themselves are not broken, it's the (probably temporary) protective coating on the windows! When the coating breaks off, you can see the window underneath is actually extremely reflective. I imagine when the rest of the protective panels come off after completion, the building is going to be a giant mirror for the ugly Petco building across the street." Delightful. [CurbedWire Inbox]

UPPER WEST SIDE?Following up on our reader report on closings at Extell's Avery in the developer's wacky Riverside South community comes official word that, indeed, closings are in full swing and folks are moving in. The Avery is 90% sold, we're told. [CurbedWire Inbox]
