New, 2 comments


THE HIGH LINE?A yearlong art exhibition on the High Line kicked off last week, with nine international artists depicting playful takes on the traditional art form of the bust. The sculptures will be on display until next year, but until June 14, the High Line wants visitors to submit ideas for which person they think should be memorialized, in bust form, on the elevated park. When the submission window closes, officials will choose five finalists and the public will vote for their favorite. The artwork will then be commissioned and installed for half a year on a pedestal left empty for it. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]

UPPER EAST SIDE?We already knew some basic facts about HFZ Capital's The Marquand at 11 East 68th Street: there will be 40 completely renovated units in the 100-year-old, 14-story building, including two penthouses with private terraces, and apartments will start at $15 million and go up to about $40M. Now we know a bit more, and we got ahold of the new photos above. Apartments will range from 4BR to 6BR, with 3,795 to 4,654 square feet, and the penthouses come in at an even 6,000 square feet apiece. Architect Lee Mindel kept old-world elegance in mind when designing the revamp, with a host of luxurious new-yet-fittingly-prewar elements: oak parquet floors; oak-paneled walls; coffered ceilings; bay windows; and wood-burning fireplaces made of Travertine marble.
