TRD celebrates PBS airing “Building Stories”

October 17, 2011 01:02PM

PBS picked up The Real Deal’s documentary on prolific architect Costas Kondylis for its 2012 documentary series, and last week celebrated with The Real Deal by holding a private screening at 1 Bryant Park Tower in Midtown.

Like the movie premiere in May, the PBS screening attracted many notable real estate bigwigs, including Halstead Property President Diane Ramirez, Peebles Chairman Don Peebles and many other friends and colleagues of Costas Kondylis (see photos above).
Bank of America sponsored the event.

The movie, titled “Building Stories, New York Through the Eyes of an Architect,” and underwritten by Andrew Heiberger of Town Residential, examines the work of Costas Kondylis, an architect who designed 86 towers that mark the Manhattan skyline and was produced by The Real Deal Publisher Amir Korangy, directed by Toni Comas and written by The Real Deal Editor-in-Chief Stuart Elliott. It will begin airing on PBS sometime in 2012. — Adam Fusfeld
