Edward Minskoff’s ambitious 51 Astor Place project now has a website, Curbed noticed, and it reveals the juicy details of the development, including additional renderings.

The 12-story Fumihiko Maki-designed office building will offer two roof decks and an outdoor plaza with an Alexander Calder sculpture. The lobby will have an art installation “constructed of back-lit cast glass, which complements the building’s overall design,” Curbed noted. Perhaps that shouldn’t be a surprise given Minskoff’s notable 20th century art collection

A tipster told Curbed that IBM and Microsoft have both expressed interest in leasing the entire building, which is exactly the sort of tenant Minskoff will need to make this project work. [Curbed]
