View From the Tippy Top of One WTC; New Broker TV Show

New, 2 comments

FINANCIAL DISTRICT?One World Trade Center is really tall. Like really, really tall. So tall it makes the Woolworth Building and New York by Gehry look like toy buildings. We thought the views from the under-construction observation deck were vertigo-inducing, but they pale in comparison to the view from the very tippy top of the tower. WTCProgress tweeted the above photo, which shows the Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens from right beside the spire. [Twitter]

TVLAND?There's no shortage of real estate reality TV shows, and now another will be introduced to the mix. A short-on-details casting call for brokers landed in our inbox today; here's the scoop:

Major home improvement channel is casting realtors to be the face of their new series! Liz Lewis Casting Partners is seeking three dynamic and competitive real estate agents/brokers to be the face of the series. In this show, the realtors will compete each episode to find the best house for a family that is outgrowing their current home. Will the family go with the choice they found on their own, or will one of the battling realtors beat their choice? The winning realtor will get their commission, win a prize, and get the bragging rights for the rest of the season.We like the idea of brokers competing, but we think a broker boxing match would be more entertaining.

UPPER EAST SIDE?The condo building at 515 East 72nd Street has been trying to shed its troubled past, and it's been charging full steam ahead with a new marketing campaign for the remaining units. Designer Mariette Himes Gomez decorated a newly-unveiled model three-bedroom apartment, pictured above. Gomez's work is often featured in Architectural Digest, and Traditional Home profiled her work in the Tribeca home of Skinnygirl/reality tv star Bethenny Frankel. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]
