In the News: Sterling Mason

••• The New York Times profiles the Sterling Mason, the half-new, half-old building at 71 Laight: “There will be six 2,000-square-foot two-bedrooms starting at $3.9 million; four 3,250-square-foot four-bedrooms starting at $8.6 million; and five 3,700-square-foot five-bedrooms starting at $9.2 million. The three penthouses—one is a 4,600-square-foot three-bedroom; another a 5,600-square-foot five-bedroom—will have fireplaces and terraces; they will start at $16 million. The building, which will have three apartments per floor with two elevator banks, also plans storage spaces, a fitness center, a library, a children’s playroom and 12 parking spaces.” The article laments the lack of inventory in Tribeca; too bad the Times doesn’t consider Broadway Tribeca, because that street is on fire. (Wait, I just now got the Sterling Mason name—the left half has a metal facade.)

    They must be serious about developing the property as the news story says the landing gear piece was discovered by surveyors.
