CurbedWire: Boutique Hotel Moon Wars, Rialto Gets a TCO

New, 28 comments

MEPA?While we thought the new boutique hotel rivalry was the Gansevoort vs. the Standard, it turns out that the Gansevoort is more concerned with the Cooper Square. A tipster writes: "I have never taken a picture of a nude guy through a window before (no, really, I swear!), but this is the scene I came across while walking down 14th Street Saturday afternoon. There was a crowd of people pointing up at the Gansevoort Hotel and laughing, so I looked. This naked guy was standing in the window; looked like he was unfolding and refolding the same shirt, over and over. This went on for quite some time." So that that, Coop! [CurbedWire Inbox]

WILLIAMSBURG?An update now from The Rialto, the new slice of Gene Kaufman-designed living curiously billed as a "carriage house conversion." Per a press release, the 31-unit building has received its Temporary Certificate of Occupancy, and is set to welcome its first residents. The Developer's Group has 11 active listings in the building on its website. [CurbedWire Inbox]
