CHELSEA?What is it about Chelsea apartment sellers that makes them show off their prized possessions in listings? When it's not a stack of Emmys, it's fresh packaging for one of them iPad doohickeys. Writes a tipster: "iPad product placement on Corcoran? Not that Apple needs the help." Here's the listing. [CurbedWire Inbox]

GREENPOINT?Too-hot-for-Brooklyn barred-chitect Robert Scarano designed 53 Java Street, which means it has some quirks beyond the way it "seamlessly blends into the streetscape," as Brownstoner once wrote. Note how the rear yards that come with some levels are noted on the floorplans as "cellars." A tipster fills us in: "The patio is essentially an outdoor basement sunk about 15 ft below the ground. Notice the poor drainage. Not surprising given these are the same contractors who were responsible for a dump truck tipping over and hitting the neighboring bldg during the construction phase."

MIDTOWN?Marketed as a "big box retail opportunity," we're still not sure what's coming to SOM's famed glass box at 510 Fifth Avenue (currently owned by Elie Tahari). However, we do know that the Chase branch currently occupying party of the building will be closing in October. [CurbedWire Inbox]
