The cool, geometric rental tower at 111 Varick Street was just completed this year, and now it’s opened an affordable housing lottery for 30 of its 100 apartments. The units are available to those earning 70, 80, or 130 percent of the area median income and range from $1,224/month studios to $3,219/month two-bedrooms. By comparison, the market-rate units start around $4,000/month for studios. Located in the burgeoning Hudson Square neighborhood, bordering the southern edge of Soho, this 30-story tower was designed by S9 Architecture with a unique undulating precast concrete facade. Because of where it’s sited, the building offers incredible views of the Hudson River and skyline.

Google will buy the Manhattan office building it currently leases for $2.1 billion next year.

As the Wall Street Journal first reported, the deal marks the priciest sale of a single office building in the United States since the start of the pandemic, as well as one of the most expensive ever recorded.
