CurbedWire: FiDi Cashes In, Lotta Parties, Windermere Rumor

FIDI?A tipster sends in the above photo of a retail space at 5 Hanover Square, nothing the aggressive usage of our favorite Financial District moniker. Not surprising, because this is a Kent Swig building, and Swig Equities has been a big FiDi pusher. What is surprising, however, is that the average income of the neighborhood's residents is $240,000? Good lord! That's so much, um, less than us! [CurbedWire Inbox]

HARLEM?Former Development Du Jour Lotta Condominiums, a fun little 35-unit conversion job on West 118th Street, will be celebrating itself tonight with a rooftop/model apartments shindig. Sushi will be served, just to bang home the message of West Harlem gentrification. [CurbedWire Inbox]

HELL'S KITCHEN?The situation at Ninth Avenue's legendary and legendarily screwy Windermere is so messed up that no rumor about the boarded-up building can be counted out. But this one sounds like a longshot: "I have heard that the owners of the Hudson hotel purchased the Windemere and plan to convert it to condos." We asked where this information came from, and our tipster repllied, "From the barber at Roosevelt's (the neighborhood barbershop), who claimed to have heard it from the manager at the Hudson hotel."
