CurbedWire: Windermere Work, Stringer Likes MoMA Tower

HELL'S KITCHEN?Now that decrepit Ninth Avenue landmark the Windermere is in the hands of someone who'll take care of it, a tipster reports that work is underway on restoring the old beauty. [CurbedWire Inbox]

MIDTOWN?Ahead of next week's City Planning Commission hearing on Jean Nouvel's MoMA Tower at 53 West 53rd Street, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer has announced his conditional approval of the skyscraper. Those conditions? That the 1,250-foot tower "limit the number of dwelling units to no more than 300 and the number of hotel rooms to no more than 167; explore methods to limit and accommodate large crowds on public sidewalks, which include adjusting opening hours and waiting areas; and work with neighbors, the community board, government agencies and other local stakeholders to address construction impacts and issues." Yeah, but what's his take on the Vertical Neighborhood. [CurbedWire Inbox]
