Soho Building Site Reactivated; Famed FSBO Gets a Broker

New, 4 comments

SOHO?Plans were revealed a little while back for the empty corner lot at Broadway and Howard Street, formerly a flea market and Banksy canvas. But there's been a while bunch of silence at 433 Broadway, keeping us from a seven-story commercial building with an off-white aluminum facade. But what's this!? A tipster writes, "The construction has been very slow going, probably since it happened to start right around the same time the world collapsed. A broker told me they lost their funding for a while when Lehman went under. I don't know if that is true. So it was a sight for sore eyes this morning to see the concrete foundation being poured again." [CurbedWire Inbox]

FLATIRON?There's another twist in the saga of the bonkers $11.495 million penthouse at 5 East 17th Street, which you might know from the movie version of Rent, or from past Curbed coverage. After a brief spell as a FSBO, the apartment now has brand new brokerage representation. Check out this new listing, comin' atcha from Jamie Knuckles. The price hasn't changed. [Nest Seekers]
