Tribeca Citizen | In the News: 11 Hubert goes back to the drawing board
11 HUBERT REJECTED BY LANDMARKS
A classic lede from The Post: “This Tribeca building cost $20 million, but its owner apparently couldn’t buy good taste.” The story goes on to say that the Landmarks Commission blasted the new plans for 11 Hubert as being “fortress like” and “almost Darth Vader-ish” and “very mask like.” The building will go back to the drawing board. (The proposal did have this evocative photo from 1946.)
ONE SEAPORT NEARLY COMPLETE

OBIT FOR DEAN & DELUCA
In what has to be an unusual feature for a fine art magazine, ARTnews has an obit for a grocery store – in this case, Dean & DeLuca. It starts with “It doesn’t seem real,” and has quotes from artist Betty Tompkins, dealer Jeffrey Deitch and the children of Donald Judd and Paula Cooper, who as little kids, would shop with little pieces of paper that served as credit. “What was beautiful about Dean & DeLuca was its invention,” Rainer Judd told ARTnews. “Artists at that time were creating the world anew, demanding of each other a certain originality of living and life and floorplan and art and dance and performance and music. Dean & DeLuca was in line with all of that.”
