New, 5 comments

HUDSON SQUARE?One of the teams that took part in that awesome Envisioning Hudson Square Design Charrette, Zakrzewski + Hyde Architects and Starr Whitehouse Landscape Architects and Planners, just received the American Institute of Architects' annual Design Award for their vision, titled Hudson Square Rise. There it is up above, and you can see more detailed glimpses of the design here, here and here. Congrats! [CurbedWire Inbox]

TRIBECA?The crane is back in action at the Jack Parker site on Washington and Watts Streets, following that little booboo a few weeks back. Did the incident result in more transparency for a massive project that few know anything about? Er, no. [CurbedWire Staff]

FLUSHING MEADOWS CORONA PARK?Rarely do we get excited about the wilds of Queens, but we must tip our hat to the borough, because tomorrow morning the city's first indoor public pool built in four decades will throw open its doors. From the press release: "The Olympic-size swimming pool is housed in the new Flushing Meadows Corona Park Natatorium and Ice Rink building, which was built in partnership with the Economic Development Corporation. The contemporary building, which also houses a NHL-regulation ice rink, is largest recreation complex ever built in a City park and will serve as a year-round facility for competitive and recreational use." You know we love a good pool. [CurbedWire Inbox]
