    Financial District neighbors are used to chaos during the day, but surprisingly conservative when it comes to nighttime disruptions.

    At a Community Board 1 meeting on Wednesday night, residents expressed concern about the Gene Kaufman-designed, W&L Group Construction-developed Indigo Hotel, whose façade would act as a clock, lighting up gradually until it reaches full brightness at midnight, according to Curbed.

    Demolition is expected to begin at the site in mid-April, with construction slated for this fall. The 24-story building would light up floor-by-floor. [more]

    It’s no maiden voyage for Gene Kaufman. The new owner of 8 Maiden Lane has tapped the prolific architect to design a 25-story, 191-room hotel on the site — his second on the narrow Financial District street.

    The 75,742-square-foot project, to be crowned with a 25th-floor bar and outdoor terrace, will be located between Broadway and Liberty Place, according to a plan exam cited by BuzzBuzzHome. The cryptically-named 10-12 MLane LLC purchased the current four-story building in August for $5.6 million. The seller, Rusdan Operating Corp., had owned the lot since 1978. [more]
