LINCOLN CENTER?We're no strangers to sudden façade changes to gussy up a property, but adding columns could be a new strategy. A tipster writes: "What's going on in front of Two Lincoln Square in the Lincoln Center area? Phony, non-supporting columns are being built -- so it won't look like the upper floors cantilever over the street? This makes no sense -- functionally or aesthetically. All of this while Lincoln Center, across the street, undergoes a transformation with lots of added cantilevering." [CurbedWire Inbox]

CHELSEA?The 24-unit Carriage House building at 154 West 24th Street has flown under our radar. No longer. We hear, "I was walking east down W 24th St. from 7th Ave and noticed that scaffolding was being taken down on a new building called Carriage House. Loved the flower boxes!" A round of rendering/reality may be in the offing, friends. [CurbedWire Inbox]

HUDSON SQUARE?Tomorrow morning at 22 Reade Street (10 a.m., if you're feelin' it) the City Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on the Sanitation Department's extremely controversial plan to build a 12-story garbage garage on the western end of Spring Street. CB2 reminds us what's at stake: "Hundreds of garbage trucks will travel through our neighborhood each day to use the garage. These trucks will be in addition to the Sanitation trucks that will travel to our district from all over Manhattan to use the newly authorized Gansevoort marine transfer station. The Sanitation Department also plans to place a seven-story high, open-sided salt shed at Spring Street, which will blow salt into our streets, parks and the Hudson River." But isn't the river already salty? [CurbedWire Inbox]
