CurbedWire: 290 Mulberry is Faux Real, WaHI Residents Want to Cook, Georgica Sales Update

New, 9 comments

NOLITA?Sure, there's some controversy as to whether SHoP Architects' wavy 290 Mulberry Street is "real" brick façade, but we don't care! We think it's purty, and these updated Construction Watch photos sent in by a Curbed tipster do nothing to dissuade us from that opinion. We'll take that penthouse, please! [CurbedWire Inbox]

WaHI?Residents of 700 Fort Washington Avenue were joined by Manhattan Borough Prez Scott Stringer today at a rally against their building owner, the Ohebshalom family, also known as the Shalom family (they reportedly own over 100 buildings under various names). This latest protest against the notorious slumlords was held because Con Ed had to shut down gas to the 73-unit building in May, and cannot restore service until repairs are made to the cooking gas system in the building, which obviously will never happen.

UPPER EAST SIDE?According to a press release from developers the Ascend Group, Georgica, the latest family-friendly glassy addition to the Upper East Side, is over 30% sold. Must be all that sweet sweet khaki. [CurbedWire Inbox]
