All the latest real estate news from Curbed NY...
1) New York City: Thousands of buildings are protected by New York's Landmarks law, and we've made a map of the inaugural class, the first 31 buildings to be protected by the Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1965.
2) Williamsburg: The new Williamsburg's Yotel is being designed by architects HWKN, and that design was revealed this week to look, almost uncannily, like a big piece of sushi rising next to the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.
3) Brooklyn: Brooklyn townhouses are notoriously expensive these days, but there are still homes available in the borough for, well, under $2 million. So, not cheap, per se, but... Here are the ten least expensive ones that are currently on the market.
4) Midtown: One of the slew of new superluxury megatowers coming to Midtown Manhattan will be even taller than previously expected. New documents show that the SHoP-designed 111 West 57th Street will rise to 1,421 feet, making it the tallest building in the western hemisphere.
