In the News: The Fulton Center Oculus

••• More on West Street bridge elevator repairs, including this about the Chambers Street bridge: “Repairs are now complete, but awaiting final inspection. No timetable for the inspection and resumption of service at the elevators servicing this bridge was immediately available.” —Broadsheet

••• How the Fulton Center’s oculus is shaping up (rather nicely, it turns out). It involves a net designed by James Carpenter Design Associates, which is based at 145 Hudson. If anyone there reads this, get in touch! Let’s so something. —The New York Times (which has photos, as opposed to the rendering shown here)

••• Community Board 1’s Landmarks Committee approved the developer of 5 Beekman’s plans “to build a few small additions on the building’s roof, chiefly the extension of an air-conditioning system and an elevator bulkhead, neither of which would come close to the height of the building’s two towers. The architects will also amend the building’s store fronts, making sure that they will remain ‘inspired by the 19th Century.'” —Curbed

••• “The N, Q, R Broadway lines will be shut down during overnight hours in Manhattan next week for maintenance work and repairs […]. The trains will not run between 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. from Monday through early Friday morning.” —DNAinfo
