••• “An unlisted, uber-luxury penthouse at the Robert A.M. Stern-designed 70 Vestry condo tower [above] just sold for $40.7 million to an anonymous buyer. The purchaser is listed as ‘DB Property Holdings Limited’ according to records filed with New York City’s Department of Finance Friday. […] The same anonymous buyer who snapped up this 70 Vestry penthouse appears to have been behind the $44 million purchase of a penthouse at 443 Greenwich in 2017, according to city records.” —Real Deal

••• “Saks Fifth Avenue, due to shutter its sprawling, two-year-old Brookfield Place women’s store at 225 Liberty St. on Saturday, is expected to be replaced by Convene, the chain of flexible coworking and event centers.” —Tribeca Trib

••• “FiDi lunch spot Don Wagyu, home to a $180 wagyu sandwich, begins dinner service on Monday.

••• “Last May, the City Store at the [Manhattan Marriage] Bureau, where 300-plus ceremonies, often called City Hall weddings, are performed weekly, switched from selling real flowers to renting silk and synthetic arrangements of sunflowers, white roses and calla lilies, among others. […] ‘We used the same flower vendor for eight years, but he closed down his business. Wedding season was approaching and we needed to have an offering for the brides,’ said Dana Rosario, 42, the director of City Stores, which operates from 141 Worth Street. […] Ms. Rosario, the brainchild behind the program, is also the creator of the bouquets. ‘The display was empty since the real flowers were gone, so I went to the flower district and bought fake ones,’ she said. ‘Then I made bouquets to fill the space.'” —New York Times
