That headline is the way a Curbed tipster described the launch of the web presence for Northern Tribeca's most frustrating mystery building: the Jack Parker site. Intel indicates that the topped-off project will be a 300-unit luxury rental development (due to land lease issues), but really, who knows? The website builds on the Edward Albee quote printed on the scaffolding at the site, and more truffle-related quotes scroll by while a morose trumpet solo goes on ... and on. Speculates our tipster: "I think the truffles reference is actually to the LLC that is developing the building." The website leads you to a registration form that asks you to "Write us a note." Our message: Show us some damn renderings already!
