Smoke Monster Visits BPC; The 505 Wants to Make a Deal

New, 10 comments

BATTERY PARK CITY?Been a while since the smoke monster has been spotted downtown, but it never vanishes completely. A tipster sends along this photo of 17 Battery Place (that prefab address) "belching black smoke." Explanations? [CurbedWire Inbox]

HELL'S KITCHEN?Condo building The 505 has finally come to the end of its rocky road: there are five units left. And according to building reps, the developer is willing to negotiate with buyers making deals in the next 30 days. The negotiation, though, has a bit of the daring flavor of the developer's earlier attempts to negotiate with buyers: the developer is only willing to negotiate up to 10 percent off the current asking prices. Which is the discount range most units seem to be selling for anyway. [CurbedWire Inbox]
