Hunting for Truffles

From the October issue: The sign on the side of the nearly finished building on West and Desbrosses streets has drawn attention for prominently displaying the curious quote from playwright Edward Albee: “You gotta have swine to show you where the truffles are.” It’s a quote also displayed on the somewhat mystifying Web site for the building, which gives few details for the project also known as “Truffles Tribeca.” The 291-unit complex by the Jack Parker Corporation, the firm responsible for the 464-unit Biltmore in Midtown West, and the 1,329-unit Parker Towers in Forest Hills, Queens, will offer “market-rate” rents, according to Sha Dinour, president of the Triumph Property Group, which is marketing the project.
