Seen & Heard: 30 Park Place Is Close to Topping Out

••• Nice to see the sidewalk shed down at 415 Broadway, which is being turned into a Walgreens one of these days.

415 Broadway••• Mulberry & Vine is now delivering to Brookfield Place and 1 World Trade Center, and having just had the curried cauliflower soup for lunch, I can tell you that it’s just the thing for this weather.

••• “Liberty Street granite and curb installation at north end of the VSC,” tweeted @WTCProgress about this pic of the Vehicular Security Center, which is under the forthcoming Liberty Park.

••• The Committee to Save North Cove Steering Committee is hosting a town hall tomorrow (Jan. 8) to discuss North Cove Marina: “This may be the last chance for you to speak out about what you want the fate of North Cove Marina to be.” It’s from 6 to 8 p.m. at the BPC Library, 175 North End Ave.

••• 30 Park Place appears to be nearing its apex—the narrowing we can now see at the top seems to jibe with the rendering.
