COOPER SQUARE?By the looks of the heavy scaffolding now up on the new Cooper Union academic building, it appears that work is underway on what we like to call, "the sloping middle thingy." We're not sure if that's the official Thom Mayne/Morphosis name for the sloping middle thingy, but hey, the nickname fits. [CurbedWire Staff]

HUDSON YARDS?The MTA has issued a press release formally announcing the extension of the "conditional designation" of Related Companies and its partner Goldman Sachs as the developer of Hudson Yards. One new bit of intel: Related is paying $8.6 million for the one-year closing delay, not $10 million as reported this morning. [CurbedWire Inbox]

UPPER EAST SIDE?The condo/resort mash-up Miraval Living on East 72nd Street near the East River is in the midst of a broker's open house as we type, which comes on the heels of that brokerage switch a couple months back. A glance at the new website and listings shows an emphasis on the 515 East 72nd Street address over the "Miraval Living" moniker (and 4% commissions!). Of course, in another life, this was the River Terrace rental building. [CurbedWire Inbox]
