CurbedWire: Bowery Lux, Howard St. Hotel and a RAINBOW!!!

New, 3 comments

MADISON SQUARE/FLATIRON?We are not heartless. We can enjoy some nice rainbow photographs as much as the next guy, especially when they involve the towers?completed and otherwise?of the Madison Square Park and Flatiron area. The pictures were snapped yesterday, and our photog writes: "Looks like the southern pot of gold is on the 20th floor of One Madison Park." Shouldn't the pot of gold be a bit higher, like, say, the $45 million penthouse? [CurbedWire Inbox]

EAST VILLAGE?The clock may be ticking on architect Robert Scarano's ability to do business in New York, but his Bowery tower at 52 East 4th Street chugs along. A press release just went out about the building's penthouse, and it's a keeper: "While the Bowery accommodated new immigrants in the late 1800s, then punk-rockers throughout the 1990s—now the Bowery is in for something new—luxury. 52E4's penthouse is the most valuable piece of property to ever hit the Bowery with a ticket price of $2600 per square foot for the 1317 square feet inside and 1000 square feet outside ... The common association with the Bowery traces back to tight conditions in former tenement houses during Ellis Island’s hey-day, but that’s all about to change." [CurbedWire Inbox]

SOHO?Writes an anonymous tipster, "Please post an anonymous tip: The corner property on the NW corner of Howard Street & Broadway is being considered for a hotel development site." Yes ma'am. Or sir. You'll never know! [CurbedWire Inbox]
