New York City finally got its bean. About five years and several delays later, Anish Kapoor’s mirrored sculpture was unveiled to the public this week, seemingly propping up Tribeca’s “Jenga Building” at 56 Leonard Street. As first reported by Tribeca Citizen, and confirmed by 6sqft, the longstanding barriers and scaffolding have been removed, with the monumental permanent public artwork taking its rightful place on the corner of Church and Leonard Streets.

“Today” co-host Savannah Guthrie and her husband, communications pro Michael Feldman, have put their turn-key Tribeca loft on the market for $7,100,000. The full-floor four-bedroom received a modern renovation by AD100 architects Ike Kligerman Barkley and AD100 interior designer Monique Gibson. After calling the apartment home for over five years, the couple has decided to sell because they have a “vision and dream of living in a townhouse,” Guthrie told the Wall Street Journal, which first reported the listing.

Manhattan is getting a new, marine science-inspired play area to teach kids about wildlife. The Hudson River Park Trust last month broke ground on the 4,000-square-foot play area at Pier 26 in Tribeca. Designed by OLIN, the Pier 26 Science Play Area will feature interactive sculptural elements where children can play while learning about marine life and the surrounding Hudson River habitat. The specialized park will also serve as an outdoor programming space for the future Hudson River Estuarium and complements the recently opened ecologically-themed Pier 26. Located at North Moore Street in Hudson River Park, the play area is expected to open to the public this year.

Designed by prominent New York City architect Stephen Decatur Hatch, the six-story building at 451 Washington Street was constructed as a warehouse in 1891 and converted to co-ops in the 1970s. Citing its striking combination of neo-Flemish and Romanesque Revival architectural styles, the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission designated the Fleming Smith Warehouse as a landmark in 1978. One of the 19th-century building’s six co-op apartments hit the market recently, asking $3,495,000 for a three-bedroom corner loft.

This crisp, contemporary condo at 7 Harrison Street may not immediately call to mind the building’s beginnings as a cold-storage warehouse, but AD100 architect Steven Harris has transformed this three-bedroom home, now asking $5,500,000, into a residence as striking as many of its neighbors on the classic Tribeca loft block. The architect kept the space elegantly functional as well as colorful by adding considered features like invisible light switches, integrated Sonos speakers, multi-zone central air, and electronic Lutron window shades.
