••• “After Murat Bugdaycay, the developer of two landmarked Tribeca buildings at 52-54 Lispenard Street, got a ‘no go’ from the Landmarks Preservation Commission for the previous demolition plan, the development team returned this week with a new proposal and won the Commissioner’s approval. Instead of razing the fire damaged remnants of 52 Lispenard, the creative crew from Section F Design came up with a three-story vertical extension that one Commissioner praised as a “worthy riff on cast iron.'” —Curbed

••• “Did Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany sell their Tribeca apartment?” It’s off the market. —Curbed

••• Eater picked up my Atera Kickstarter drive, which is nice, but check out the comments. I’m a “horrible, entitled, insane individual” who deserves to have his food spat in (or worse…?). Makes me once again appreciate the general civility of the commenters here. Also: Hospitality Design has a lot of photos of Atera’s interior.

••• “The Hudson River Park Trust is pushing for state legislation giving it the power to issue bonds, as it embarks on a multimillion-dollar effort to repair decaying piers and expand commercial development along Manhattan’s western waterfront.” —Wall Street Journal
