FINANCIAL DISTRICT?The Cipriani family empire may be in a spot of trouble, but the Cipriani Club Residences at 55 Wall Street are getting gussied up. A tipster noticed scaffolding going up on the building and was troubled by the timing, but according to permits the Beaux-Arts landmark is just getting some facade repairs, not stripped and sold for scrap. Exhale. [CurbedWire Inbox]
JERSEY CITY?Would you believe that there's a CANCOamenity that we haven't CANCOdiscussed? Indeed, the ginormous condo conversion of Jersey City's American Can Company factory into CANCOlofts also includes CANCOpark, a public 15,000-square-foot green space across Dey Street. Construction just kicked off, which reminds us that a tipster sent along a rendering a little while back, remarking, "While not the best rendering, I'm sure whatever gets built will be better than the existing parking lot." The park is scheduled for October completion.
