In the News: South Street Skyscraper

••• Curbed says that the foxy building it thought was going to be 22 Thames won’t be there; New York YIMBY says it might actually be 111 Washington.

••• “Imperial Development Group, the team behind the renovation/conversion of 372 Broadway, will go before the Landmarks Preservation Commission on February 26.” —Curbed

••• The Wall Street Journal has an article about Hudson Square. The only part that struck me as news was “the Dahesh Museum of Art […] recently opened a shop and office space at 145 Sixth Ave. after five years without a physical location.” I’d never heard of the museum; its website says “The Dahesh Museum of Art is the only institution in the United States devoted to collecting, exhibiting, and interpreting works by Europe’s academically trained artists of the 19th and early 20th centuries.”

••• “The principal of PS/IS 276 [said] that she reluctantly favors freeing up two classrooms by ending pre-kindergarten at her school, at least until the 2017-2018 school year.” —Tribeca Trib

••• A big, striking building—”a 998-foot tall skyscraper bisected by skygardens that would have a boutique hotel on the bottom and apartments on the top,” says Curbed—is in the works for 80 South Street. —YIMBY (via Curbed)
