New, 1 comment

MIDTOWN?The Midwest has cow-tipping, and Midtown has crane-tipping. The latest mishap happened at Tower 111, the 47-story office tower designed by Costas Kondylis rising near the Manhattan Mall on Sixth Avenue. A tipster writes: "Crane came down on the project site on 31st st and 6th ave right before 2 PM today. Tons of gawkers and construction workers milling around." Another pic after the jump.

HELL'S KITCHEN?The tenants at troubled 57th Street condo conversion Sheffield57 sued developer Kent Swig over what they allege are millions of dollars in improper withdrawals from the building's reserve fund. A recent report indicated that Swig agreed to pay the money back, but a tenant tells us that's not the case: "Swig's attorney said that he would make the recommendations to Swig in a meeting with the Attorney General's Office and the Sheffield 57 Owners Assoc. Swig did not follow his attorney's recommendations." As mentioned earlier, Swig is currently being blocked from pursuing the sale of the building's debt due to a lawsuit filed by his partners in the conversion. [CurbedWire Inbox]
