In the News: 113 Nassau Rendering

••• There’s a too-true letter to the editor in the Broadsheet about “pedestrian-blind traffic policy in our neighborhood”—specifically in relation to West Street—”which is overdue for a shakeup.”

••• “New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration is leaning on airlines and their insurers to settle a long-running lawsuit over the 9/11 attacks with World Trade Center developer Larry Silverstein, in a bid to help Ground Zero construction. Mr. Cuomo’s top insurance regulator, Benjamin Lawsky, recently warned airline insurers that the absence of a settlement has ‘undermined public confidence in the insurance industry and slowed redevelopment of the attack site.'” —Wall Street Journal

••• “Construction finally began at 113 Nassau Street—where a bunch of lots were combined in 2007 for a 28-story residential tower—just this past September. Now a tipster passes along the first rendering we’ve seen of the project, via the Cooper Union website (one of the school’s professors appears to be involved). […] We’re not sure whether the apartments will be rentals or condos.” Also, it’ snow 30 stories. —Curbed

••• Manhattan Loft Guy dissects a sale at 16 Hudson. The faucet really must be seen (click here then look for the darkest photo).

••• Eater is calling it Goldman Alley too.



  1. RE: 16 Hudson Apartment – Self portrait of a chair?
    Judging by the number of faucet photos, they must have shares in Sherle Wagner.

  2. That rendering is really hysterical — as if there were but a couple of 12- or 20-storey buildings on the blocks surrounding, and a multilane boulevard outside. Real fantasy.

  3. 113 NASSAU: There should be an investigation obout the background of the decisions to issue permits to build several skycrapers in the low-rise historical district, with very narrow streets. #deathtrap #FBI #Bloomberg #FiDi
