In the News: 93 Worth Debuts

••• “A long-awaited new Tribeca condo conversion has hit the market today after hiking its prices 10 percent just a few weeks prior to the launch. Units at 93 Worth Street, between Broadway and Church Street, are set to come online today with prices ranging from $545,000 for a studio to $6.33 million for a four-bedroom spread [….] There are 92 units at the property in total, including seven penthouse additions. Apartments range in size from 475 square feet to 3,300 square feet.” —The Real Deal; photos and floor plans are at

••• “Part of the uncertainty now, [BPCA chairman Dennis] Mehiel told the [Tribeca] Trib, is whether Asphalt will be able to open in time to operate its summer camp, a ‘critical component’ of its ability to make a financial go of it. ‘If it turned out that they couldn’t do that, it would cause a material change to the financing,’ he said. If Asphalt is able to run its summer camp, he said, contract concessions negotiated before the storm will remain ‘close’ to where they were.” As a reader just emailed me, this is beginning to resemble Argo.

  1. How could Asphalt Green not be ready by SUMMER, if they were ready to open up December 1???? And that summer camp is EXACTLY what Manhattan Youth doesn’t want to open. This is infuriating.

  2. It really is like Argo, feeding all sorts of conspiracy notions!
