UNION CITY?On the other side of the Lincoln Tunnel, just two miles from midtown Manhattan (or so they tell us), lies Union City's first luxury high-rise, The Thread. According to press materials, the 15-story 151-unit building has sold out its first phase of pre-construction apartments, and the Grand Opening party is on Sunday. More: "The Thread is redefining luxury living in Union City through its spectacular views of Manhattan’s famed skyline and comprehensive amenities package, including a doorman, a first for Union City; concierge, recreation room with billiards table; state-of-the-art fitness center; children’s playroom; landscaped outdoor plaza with barbecues, putting green and children’s play area; and an onsite parking garage." Prices range from $300,000 to the $800,000s. [CurbedWire Inbox]

FLATIRON?According to a Flatiron Building worker bee, everyone in the building just got this memo: "Flatironers, You may have noticed (or heard) the construction in the street on the Broadway side of the building that started yesterday. The City of New York, in it's infinite wisdom, has decided to install a pedestrian plaza that will extend from 25th st south to 22nd st. Installing this plaza will essentially narrow Broadway and 5th ave down to two lanes from 25th to 23rd and continuing on the Broadway side to 22nd. When completed, tables, chairs, umbrellas and planters will be installed for your lunchtime enjoyment. In addition, a new food kiosk will be installed on the island just north of 23rd st. They will also reinstall the bus stop that existed on the Broadway side of the FIB until yesterday. The City expects the digging will be completed within about 2 weeks and all work will be completed within about 6 weeks time." [CurbedWire Inbox]
