Mystery Clouds 61 Fifth Ave; Soho Bids FNO a Happy Farewell

New, 7 comments

GREENWICH VILLAGE/NOHO/CENTRAL VILLAGE?We've got ourselves a mystery on our hands. We reported almost a year ago that the Alta Indelman-designed condo project at 61 Fifth Avenue, meant to include luxury duplexes and triplexes, had topped out. (That's the rendering, right up there.) Yet we received word from the architect's PR reps that Indelman herself was happy to announce the topping out of the building?today. Curious. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]

SOHO?The Soho Alliance is jumping for joy now that Fashion's Night Out has been given the boot throughout the country. According to a release, the event evolved into somewhat of a shitshow in Soho, where "crowds of underage kids showed up to grab the booze that the retailers freely doled out, roamed the streets well past midnight, carousing half-drunk, urinating in our doorways, screaming, trashing and creating general disorder, including the attack on a motorist." Well, good riddance to... supposedly savvy city kids who can't hold their liquor. [CurbedWire Inbox]

MIDTOWN/MIDTOWN WEST—Over at 432 Park Avenue, which is set to be the tallest residential building in the wold when it's completed (someday), they've even branded their own cranes (above). Faaaaaaancy. Well, for construction equipment. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]

NEW YORK CITY?The city announced today that it will offer free consultations starting March 4 for property owners and design industry folks who are planning to make renovations to buildings affected by Hurricane Sandy. The program is meant to speed up the approval process for reconstruction projects, which might bump the city's bureaucratic pace up from glacial up to just plain slow. Email to request an appointment; don't forget bring your architect or engineer, natch. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]
