CurbedWire: van Berkel Gets Dusty, Dire Dwyer Appliances?

New, 10 comments

TRIBECA?We've previously featured the building planned on Franklin Place from Ben van Berkel, but this is a different topic. It's unclear what the dust coming out of those dumpsters is, but it's enough to make you want to hold your breath just watching it. The creator of the video writes, "On my way to work every day I walk past the Franklin Place alleyway where Ben van Berkel is purportedly building that 21-story beast. There's been a lot of demolition lately and this particular morning I had to hold my breath as I walked past these dust-emitting dumpsters...this probably isn't the best way for an architect to ingratiate himself with a
neighborhood." [CurbedWire Inbox]

HARLEM?Was it only last week we had an item about drama related to a lack of move-in dates at the Dwyer on 123rd Street and St. Nicholas Avenue? One almost wants to see photos of appliances and things being carried into the building at this point, but an email indicates possible activity: "It looked like PC Richards was delivering appliances to the Dwyer yesterday. I didn't look in the truck at the load, but it was parked out front on St. Nicks and the door to the building was propped open." [CurbedWire Inbox]
