End of an Era

Turns out that when , the Durst Organization's Bjarke Ingels-designed West Side rental pyramid tetrahedron topped out on Halloween, it marked somewhat of a turning point for its landowner. As per Crain's, on the end of a 150-year-old legacy: "The land beneath the Durst project, and that of an even larger apartment complex being built by TF Cornerstone a block south, belongs to the descendants of Charles Edgar Appleby, an austere developer who became one of the richest men in the city by the time he died in 1913 at 89." The Applebys belong up there with the Zeckendorfs, Macklowes, et al., so read on. [Crain's; previously]
