  1. Wow! Could not be more proud that Ms. Turner is putting down stakes in my part of the micronabe of Chibeca.

  2. Any news about the mosaic banking hall in 1 Wall? Is it landmarked?

    • According to a diagram in the Trib’s article, it’ll be retail, but no word on who/what. The building is landmarked, but I don’t believe the interior is—not even of the famous Red Room. From a 2001 NYT article on the landmarking of the building: “To qualify as an interior landmark, however, a space must be customarily accessible to the public. A visitor on Wednesday evening was given a flier about the room by a guard who said cordially, ‘Admire it as much as you want.’ But Mr. Logan noted that while the public was admitted on occasion, the room, which serves the private banking division, was closed at the bank’s discretion. Nonetheless, he added, ‘We’ve always maintained it with the utmost care.'”
