    Centurion Realty has been buying up Soho properties in recent months, but this time around the Flushing, Queens-based firm is trimming its holdings in the coveted neighborhood. Led by Ralph Tawil, Centurion Realty sold a five-story, mixed-use building at 5-7 Mercer Street for $16.5 million, more than double the purchase price in 2007, according to property records filed today.

    Tawil bought the 21,000-square-foot walk-up property near Howard Street for $7 million. The site is fully leased, with nine rental units and a retail space housing the first New York City store of Irish fashion designer Orla Kiely.  [more]

    elevator bulkhead is higher than it should be, the windows are
    casements and the cornice is not designed as planned. The building
    switched architects midway through the project, with Joseph Pell
    Lombardi designing the building and architect Karl Fischer taking over
    once construction had begun. After approval from the Landmarks
    Preservation Commission, Lombardi changed the designs to incorporate
    recommendations from the Board of Standards and Appeals, and he never
