Midtown's Newest Modern Landmark; Artist Buys Building in 'Hot Gowanus'; Domino Opening Up to Visitors

New, 7 comments

MIDTOWN?Buildings less than 50 years old don't usually wind up in front of the Landmarks Preservation Commission, but today the LPC gave its blessing to 104 West 40th Street for landmark designation. Designed by Harrison and Abramowitz, the office building went up in 1963 for textile manufacturer Spring Mills (now Spring Global) and is an early example of the city's green-glass movement.

GOWANUS?Best email subject line of the day: "Warehouse Building Sold in Hot Gowanus To Artist." That's right, Superfund be damned, Brooklyn-based commercial brokerage TerraCRG has sold the 4,500-square-foot industrial building at 45-49 4th Street to a "Manhattan-based artist who has plans to renovate the industrial building into a personal art studio." That Gowanus, it's so hot right now. [CurbedWire Inbox]

WILLIAMSBURG?In need of some good karma as the controversial redevelopment plan continues to seek out vital approvals, the developers of the Domino Sugar site have announced a "Sunday in the Park at Domino" event. On Sunday, the site at South Third Street and Kent Avenue will be open from 12-3 for "free refreshments and family entertainment." The old refinery buildings themselves are off limits, of course, lest someone twist an ankle inside and wind up owning the place. [CurbedWire Inbox]
