In the News: Tribecan Joins “Real Housewives” Cast

••• “The newest ‘Real Housewives of New York’ cast member is an Elvis obsessed catwalker—and she’s an actual housewife. ‘I never in a million years thought about [doing this show],’ Kristen Taekman tells The Post. The 36-year-old lives in a Tribeca pad tricked out with Elvis memorabilia with her husband, Josh Taekman—co-founder of the Eboost natural energy drinks—and their two children (son, Cash, 5 and daughter, Kingsley, 2).” —New York Post

••• The Old New York Page on Facebook posted a terrific 1936 photo of a hot dog vendor at N. Moore and West Street.

••• “One of the rare small lofts of Tribeca sells at 151 Hudson Street in need of architect for $1,374/ft.” —Manhattan Loft Guy

••• “According to a report from Real Estate Weekly, developer Mavrix Group is bringing a 75-story, 250,000-square-foot residential tower to 92 Fulton Street. The project raised $8 million through a crowdfunding startup called iFunding to buy up six parcels at 90-94 Fulton Street. It plans to raise another $42 million in equity once the deal is closed, and has a commitment from a large bank for a $150-200 million construction loan.” Then again, it could only be 51 stories, as in the rendering. —Curbed
