281 Union Avenue Rises; Kid Who Climbed WTC Apologizes

New, 10 comments

WILLIAMSBURG—The new rental building with a red racing stripe down the middle is shaping up at 281 Union Avenue, and looking somewhat less attractive than the renderings, as these things tend to do. The MDIM-designed, Alex Brown Realty Inc. and Largo Investments-developed building will have 33 units and is set to start leasing in April. [Brownstoner; previously]

FINANCIAL DISTRICT—The punk 16-year-old kid who snuck past security and climbed One World Trade Center last weekend would like everyone to know that he is very sorry. "I seriously apologize to anyone who may have been insulted or felt disrespected by my actions. It was not my intention to do so," Justin Casquejo wrote in a tweet. It sounds like the Port Authority is in a lot more trouble than he is, though. [NYP; previously]
