In the News: Franklin Place Rendering

••• “Developer Howard Hughes Corporation must announce plans for two long-fought-over historic South Street Seaport properties by June 30—or risk losing them for good, city officials said. The real estate giant […] has dibs on two large historic buildings that sit at the base of the pier: the abandoned Fulton Fish Market warehouses known as the New Market Building and the Tin Building. The company has first rights to develop the city-owned properties after signing a letter of intent with the city Economic Development Corporation—but Howard Hughes has not said what, if anything, it plans to do with the space.” This seems like a good time to mention New Amsterdam Market’s petition. —DNAinfo

5franklinplacenew_2_13-thumb••• ODA Architecture gave Curbed a rendering of its plan for Franklin Place, the new building going up on Broadway between White and Franklin. Gee, wonder why they didn’t show its neighbor to the south?

••• New York Post has an article about new buildings in “Eastern Tribeca,” including 56 Leonard, Franklin Place, and 50 Lispenard. Conspicuously missing: the 13-story building underway at 84 White.

••• New York Downtown Hospital “CEO Jeffrey Menkes resigned on the eve of a proposed takeover by New York-Presbyterian Hospital.” —DNAinfo

••• Missed this in DNAinfo’s report yesterday: “Sad news: the cool SHoP design [for the West Thames Bridge] is no longer in the picture. A new look for the bridge should be finalized in July.” Sad indeed. —Curbed
