CurbedFebruary 06, 2012
CHELSEA—We're eagerly awaiting the debut of Walker Tower, the transformation of West 18th Street's Verizon building into 55 luxury condos. So are some Curbed tipsters, one of whom lingered outside the building long enough to snap a few shots of the window openings being broken into the building's East Facade. Excuse us while we daydream about being on the other side looking out.

MIDTOWN WEST—A reader with an eye on the far west side's Silver Towers reports in: "Apparently the Silver Towers has finally found a retail tenant. They have signs up on the entire 11th Avenue side stating "Coming Soon: Your Neighborhood Grocery Store". But, there is no company name for the store. And as far as coming soon, who really knows, Freedom News the other retail tenant at the Silver Towers has had their sign up for almost 6 months now with no sign of opening in the future." Know more? Intel welcomed in comments or to the tipline.
