CROTONA PARK EAST?Yesterday, Mayor Bloomberg announced the creation of the Office of Environmental Remediation, which aims to clean up New York's contaminated "brownfield" sites. One of those sites is the former Edgewater Concrete Plant (which closed in 1987) along the western edge of the Bronx River, where the press conference was held. The 2.7-acre plot will be turned into a park called Concrete Plant Park, and per the renderings provided by the Parks Department, some of the old industrial charm will be repurposed as gritty props in the urban oasis. Pretty cool stuff. A look at some park entrances after the jump.
SOHO?A day after we revealed developer Aby Rosen's new condo project at 350 West Broadway, an official press release on the building was released. Added details: The building is shooting for September 2009 occupancy, apartment sizes range from 2,875-3,539 square feet, and prices indeed start at $9.575 million. Yes, start. The sales office is located nearby at 345 West Broadway. See you there. [CurbedWire Inbox]
FLATIRON?We can't get enough One Madison Park news, and until Rem Koolhaas's addition to the glass tower is revealed, we have this to tide us over. Via a Curbed tipster: "The American flag went up yesterday as the building was topped out. Penthouse sale announcement coming very soon." That penthouse is listed at $45 million, so this could be interesting. [CurbedWire Inbox]
