23 Park Row rendering••• First rendering of the 54-story tower going up at 23 Park Row. This angle artfully obscures the Beekman tower and the Lara. The white box to the left is 1 Beekman (33-34 Park Row), also under construction. —YIMBY

••• An update on the Water Street arcades: “Tuesday, June 7, was supposed to be the day when City Council’s Subcommittee on Zoning and Franchises and its Land Use Committee voted on what has been dubbed the Water Street Text Amendment but that didn’t happen. The Subcommittee vote has been pushed back to June 14 and the Land Use Committee, to June 15. This is to allow time for the text amendment to be modified because there has been so much opposition to the proposal as originally presented. […] The revised text amendment, currently in the works, would not be made public until June 15, when City Council’s Land Use Committee is scheduled to vote on it. After consideration by the Land Use Committee, the modified text would be sent to City Planning for comments with a final vote expected on June 21 by the full City Council. Opponents of the text amendment say that this schedule would not allow for any public comment on the modified proposal.” —Downtown Post NYC
