••• Does someone at the Wall Street Journal read this site’s comments section? A news-free roundup of new condos in the Broadway/Leonard area—including 91 Leonard, below—sounds a lot like this thread.



  1. Lots about the glamour of Leonard Street, with a little about 111 apartments having a lobby entrance 8 (eight) feet wide. Sounds grand.

    “That 30-foot-long alley—only eight-feet wide in places—will now be the main lobby entrance for 111 new condominiums under construction in a 19-story building of large glass windows and dark terra-cotta panels. To compensate for its narrow width, the building entrance will soar to a 25-foot height and be lined with brick and illuminated bronze metal columns in keeping with the industrial motif.

    “The new condos went on the market last week by Toll Brothers City Living, a division of Toll Brothers Inc., at prices ranging from $795,000 for studios to $10.5 million for a four-bedroom duplex penthouse with outdoor space.”

  2. Does someone at the New York Times also read the comments here?



    “The private purchase, according to property records, was made through the limited liability company Euro TriBeCa; that firm has a Nashville address linked to Ms. Swift’s management company, 13 Management.”
