Jean Nouvel's 100 Eleventh Avenue has been Porky Pigging it until now?smartly dressed up top, flapping in the breeze down below?but those days are over! Last month the Windows on West Chelsea was finally getting some of that fragmented glass installed on its bare base, and now that process is almost complete. We could be going out on a limb here, but the Vision Machine might just be the finest Pritzker Prize-winner designed building located next to a minimum-security women's prison in the world. And now for the most tantalizing tidbit: We hear closings will start soon, perhaps in a couple of weeks. Which reminds us, can somebody spot us $22 million? We really don't want to take that hit to our credit score.
