New Street Art In Little Italy; Sales Check at 1 Rector Park

LITTLE ITALY?The Little Italy Street Art Project, aka LISA, is continuing the artification of the downtown neighborhood. The latest addition is a mural at Mulberry and Grand Street by Yok & Sheryo. Sheryo likes to paint "imperfect gnarly characters that are calming to disoriented souls and might cause skitter skatter explosions in the brain," while Yok has "a passion for loopy moustaches, seaworthy beards and an an obsession with gargoyles." Both styles are evidenced in the new black and white mural, pictured above. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]

BATTERY PARK CITY?Reps send word that only five residences remain at 1 Rector Park, including two 2,636-square-foot four-bedroom units listed for $2.335 and $2.395 million. The other three units are all smaller, but they are located on the penthouse floor. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]

UNION SQUARE?The Union Square Triangle is getting a new piece of public art this Friday. Korean artist Jaehyo Lee will unveil Lotus, a slender conical-shaped sculpture that stands 18-feet tall, pictured at right. To create the piece, individual wood pieces were carved, burned, and shaped to a steel armature. The artwork will be on view through October. [CurbedWire Inbox; official]

MIDTOWN?The Baccarat construction has reached the 18th floor, which means that crews are now building the residential portion of the hotel-condo tower. It took just 13 months to get to this point, which means the project is ahead of schedule. Soon we'll start to see the 18th floor terraces, and a press release hinted that we'll glimpse the facade sometime next month. The 61 condos will be designed by Tony Ingrao, and they range in price from $3.5 million to $60 million. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]
