In the News: Blogger vs. Condo Developer

••• How many times do I have to tell you? Never piss off a blogger. You may remember how Ameena Meer was having trouble getting her new neighbor, the building underway at 11 N. Moore, to compensate for damage caused by construction-related flooding. Now she’s letting Zach Vella of the developer, VE Equities, have it once again. [UPDATE: Fixed the link.] He’s allegedly accusing her of extortion for writing about their conflict.

••• “The Colonnade Group, a New York-based developer, is doing another condominium conversion in Tribeca, this time at a five-story building at 77 Warren Street, according to a description of the project on BuzzBuzzHome.” If you like sports, I suppose living above a sports bar is handy. —The Real Deal

••• The New York Times says that the Butterfly will open Monday. (Update: UrbanDaddy says Tuesday.)

••• I guess there was a Nili Lotan sample sale that started today.  —Racked

••• “The Downtown Alliance, which operates the Downtown Connection free shuttle bus service, has put a fleet of seven new buses on the road as permanent replacements to the original fleet, which was wrecked by Hurricane Sandy in the autumn of last year. […] The new fleet of buses is also equipped with NextBus GPS tracking technology that allows riders to anticipate bus arrivals from any computer or web-enabled smart phone.”—Broadsheet
