30 Washington Is Complete; Stringer Speaks On Midtown East

DUMBO?This just in from Two Trees. On this, the first day of August, warehouse conversion 30 Washington is officially complete. You know, construction-wise. Rentals already started up on June 1, move-ins began later that month, and 61 percent of the building is already leased out. The building contains one-bedrooms, one-bedrooms with offices and two-bedrooms from $3,375/month; amenities include a rooftop terrace, fitness center, and kids' room. (Lots of photos can be found here.) All this despite having what one tipster labeled "the most obnoxious eyeroll inducing brooklyn/dumbo sign ever." [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]

MIDTOWN EAST?The world (okay, okay, just us zoning nerds) was waiting for Borough President Scott Stringer to weigh in on the controversial Midtown East rezoning plan. The waiting ended today, when he issued a loooong report [warning: PDF!] with his conditional approval. In short, he supports the plan as long as the rezoning doesn't involve funneling thousands of new commuters/residents/office workers into the area without first and foremost addressing its overtaxed transportation infrastructure (namely, the 4/5/6 lines). He also wants to see more residential use in the area, other guarantees that funding will come through for improvements, and modifications to energy efficiency incentives for new construction. The whole wonky analysis [again, PDF!] is worth a read. Next up, the City Planning Commission meets up August 5, and there's a public hearing on August 7. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]

MIDTOWN WEST?In the saga that is finding tenants for megaproject Hudson Yards, Related Companies was apparently attempting to lure Sotheby's by offering to buy their East Side office space in a deal that would hinge on their movin' on over to the West Side. But a Related rep tells us that, actually, that's not happening, and that the Post has issued a correction for its original story. Onto wooing the next tenant, eh? [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]
