In the News: More Details on Canal Street Market

by Stephen Kent Johnson for Dwell••• I  think this Dwell story on Jasmi and Peter Bonnén’s Tribeca apartment is new (they don’t really date their posts), but I’m not making a Loft Peeping post out of it because it feels like advertorial for Peter’s furniture company, Muuto. Still fun to look at, though. (Photo by Stephen Kent Johnson.)

••• “On October 13, Canal Street Market (265 Canal St.) will start opening its 12,000-square-foot art-and-food hub with Japanese notebooks, an artist-in-residence, and a dessert lab. 1.

••• “Jamestown has acquired 88 Leonard Street from Waterton Associates in Tribeca for close to $240 million, Commercial Observer has learned. […] Michael Phillips, the president of Jamestown, declined to comment, but a spokesman said plans for the [rental] building are as yet undecided.”

••• Wavertree, “the flagship of the Seaport Museum’s fleet of historic ships returns September 24, accompanied by much fanfare.”



  1. Canal Street Market sounds like a great addition to the neighborhood (although presumably it’s actually just across the canal in SoHo, you can row your boat right across in no time). I had assumed, judging by the name, that this would more of a supermarket or department store. Instead, it eems like a far more interesting hybrid between crafts fair, art exhibit, shopping mall, and performance art “happening”.

    May be a risky venture since the items on offer are esoteric and thus their market is unpredictable, though; hope it succeeds. I’ll be checking it out as soon as it opens.

  2. I saw very beautiful Fox Fodder Farm flower arrangements at Shinola. Not sure if they still use them, but these florists will be a great addition to the area.
