A Tribeca tipster happened by the Harrison Street sales office for Five Franklin Place this morning, the troubled 20-story condo building designed by Dutch starchitect Ben van Berkel. The office, which once proudly showed off Berkel's curves, has been under wraps for days, and now we know what's on the other side of those covered-up windows?nothing. Where do black steel bands go to die? Perhaps the same recycling plant that's set to score some fancy water.
