Via DeKalb Market Hall

With apartments ranging from $867/month studios to $1,123/month two-bedrooms, you might have some cash leftover to splurge on a Katz’s pastrami sandwich, frozen key lime pie, or smoked rack of ribs at Brooklyn’s largest food hall, DeKalb Market, just around the corner. You’ll also be just two blocks from all the action at 9 DeKalb Avenue, the borough’s future tallest tower. These 22 brand new residences at 237 Duffield Street, a 105-unit building designed by Karl Fischer, come online Tuesday through the city’s affordable housing lottery and are reserved for New Yorkers earning 60 percent of the area median income.

Built in 1897 in the Elizabethan Renaissance Revival style by renowned architect Clarence True, this brick and limestone mansion occupies a 43-foot-wide lot, not in Forest Hills or Riverdale, but at 323 West 80th Street on the Upper West Side. The New York Post writes that the owners, a Broadway producer who ran the downtown rock club the Bitter End and his wife, Donna, a casting director who happens to be the sister of Bernadette Peters, bought the house–then a rundown SRO–for $170,000 in the 1970s. Even then, they could see the potential in this grand, gothy 10,000-square-foot palace, at the time carved up into 20 rooms. A few years have passed, but we can’t help but wonder if they imagined they’d list the spruced-up house, complete with garage, elevator and enchanted garden, for almost $20 million.

A vacant waterfront site in the booming South Bronx will give way to an enormous affordable housing complex with 1,045 residential units, a home for the much-hyped Universal Hip-Hop Museum, a waterfront esplanade and outdoor performance space, a multiplex theater, and, of course, a food hall, in this case curated by Anna Castellani of Brooklyn’s wildly popular Dekalb Market Hall. The Real Deal reports that L+M Development Partners won the bid for the $200 million project, dubbed Bronx Point, which is located adjacent to Mill Pond Park and the 145th Street Bridge that runs into Manhattan.

Ai Weiwei’s installation will be underneath the Washington Square Arch beginning this October, rendering via Ai Weiwei and Public Art Fund

An art installation from internationally acclaimed artist-activist, Ai Weiwei, will be displayed at the same time as the Christmas tree underneath the Washington Square Arch this year, displacing the tree, which has been a holiday tradition since 1924. The exhibit serves as one part of the famed Chinese artist’s larger project, “Good Fences Make Good Neighbors,” which will feature ten large fence-themed works and more than 90 smaller installations across the five boroughs. As Bedford + Bowery learned, the plan is moving forward, despite objections from the Washington Square Association, who sought an appeal to have the project withdrawn because it will disrupt the usual holiday celebration, the second oldest tree lighting ceremony in New York City.

Archtober is New York City’s annual month-long architecture and design festival of tours, lectures, films, and exhibitions taking place during October when a full calendar of events turns a focus on the importance of architecture and design throughout our city in everyday life. Organized by the AIA Center for Architecture, in collaboration with over 60 partner organizations across the city, the festival raises awareness of the important role of design and the richness of New York’s built environment. Now in its seventh year, Archtober offers something for everyone—from the arch-intellectual who wants to talk Jane Jacobs to the armchair architect with a thing for skyscrapers, parks or historic buildings—in the 100+ event roster. Ahead, 6sqft has hand-picked 10 don’t-miss highlights in this year’s program.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z buy $26M East Hampton ‘Pond House’

East Hampton’s “Pond House,” located on the exclusive Georgica Pond and adjacent to a 17-acre meadow preserve, sat on the market for eight long years, despite the fact that it was built by famed classical architect Standford White and features luxe offerings like an infinity pool, outdoor dining area, and hand-carved heated marble bathtubs. But in July, the 12,000-square-foot home finally went into contract for $25,925,000, and Behind the Hedges has now gotten word that the buyers are none other than Beyoncé and Jay-Z. The power couple rented a similarly grand Hamptons home in the summer of 2012, paying $400,000 to spend the month of August there and film a music video. No word yet on whether their new purchase will get the same public attention, but it’s certainly worthy.

Madonna’s real estate saga may finally be coming to an end after a Manhattan judge on Thursday threw out the lawsuit the pop star filed against her Upper West Side apartment building, known as Harperley Hall. The “Vogue” singer sued the co-op board of her building at 1 West 64th Street in April of 2016 after they attempted to enforce a rule that prohibited members of her family or staff to be in the home without Madonna physically present (h/t Page Six). The judge dismissed the star’s suit because she filed two years after the co-op created the rule, in April of 2014, missing the deadline to proceed with legal action.

If you’ve visited Brooklyn Bridge Park then it’s likely you’ve seen 8 Old Fulton Street, the historic brick cooperative–with the red door–directly facing the park. In the 1860s, this building was constructed for the Brooklyn City Railroad Company. Today the landmark holds just 10 co-ops, meaning it’s rare to see apartments up for grabs. But this one-bedroom triplex has hit the market for $1.975 million, decked out with columns, exposed brick and twelve-foot ceilings. The previous owner was the artist Caro Heller, who passed away in 2014. According to public records, her children–an adventure writer and gallery owner–have listed the property for sale.
