40 Willow Place made all sorts of headlines when it sold for $7,350,000 last summer. Designed by Mary and Joseph Merz in the 1960′s, the 6,500-square-foot pad had been on the market for nine months or so before closing in August. As noted by Curbed late last week, the property is now back on the market asking $7,950,000, a price designed to cover the broker’s fee and let the new owners get out in one piece. The market sure is stronger than a year ago, so it sounds plausible to us. It’s certainly a unique house.

A tipster sent us a construction-site rendering of the seven-story, 35-unit building going up on the large empty lot at 1035 Fulton, and we then found more on the website of the now-ubiquitous Issac & Stern. The red brick building resembles 19th century warehouses of the type you see in Soho, Dumbo and the South […]
