In the News: 93 Worth

••• As rumored, the building at the northwest corner of Broadway and Worth is indeed going condo. “The 165,000-square-foot building, at 335-337 Broadway and marketed as 93 Worth St., is expected to be fully vacant by the end of November. […] The developer plans to convert the 13-story property into 90 apartments and six penthouses as well as 10,000 square feet of commercial/retail space. […] Apartments will range from studios to four-bedrooms, according to Doron Zwickel, executive vice president of CORE, the brokerage retained as the sales and marketing agent for the project. Price, depending on the unit, will range from $1,250 per square foot to $2,000 per square foot.” Ambitious for Broadway, no? “The penthouses will have a private terrace. Amenities of the property will include a gym, children’s playroom, lounge and 3,845-square-foot rooftop.” —Crain’s

••• “Thousands of Occupy Wall Street protesters, their ranks swelled by union members, marched from Foley Square to the Financial District Wednesday in the most significant show of numbers since the movement began more than two weeks ago. […] A total of 27 people were arrested over the course of the evening.” —DNAinfo

••• In an article about the resurgence of petits fours—or at least the hoped-for resurgence of petits-fours—the Wall Street Journal had a long conversation with Madeline Lanciani of Duane Park Patisserie.

••• “Brushstroke, David Bouley’s Michelin-starred kaiseki restaurant in Tribeca, no longer offers a sub-$135 tasting for those who eat meat and fish, a de facto $50 price hike. Previously, Brushstroke offered a $75 vegetarian tasting, an $85 non-vegetarian tasting menu, and a $135 10-course menu. This month, the vegetarian menu is $10 pricier at $85, and the cheapest option for those who eat meat and fish is the $135 menu.” He says it’s still worth it. —The Price Hike, via Eater
