Twenty9th Park Madison model unit to become gallery
Twenty9th Park Madison has formed a partnership with the Gabarron
Foundation, a non-profit organization that serves as a center for
Spanish and South American art and cultural activities in New York.
Together, they will transform a model residence into a temporary art
gallery, featuring 17 artworks curated by the foundation.
Additional pieces will be on display in the lobby.

Prudential Douglas Elliman’s Jason Karadus is the lead broker for the
project. The condo will have ground-floor retail, and the eight full-floor units range from
2,000 to 4,800 square feet.

Beacon Theatre renovation completed
Jones Lang LaSalle’s project and development services group has
completed the $16 million restoration of the Beacon Theatre, at 2124
