Durst Org/Durst Fetner Residential president Jody Durst and DFR CEO Hal Fetner spoke yesterday YM/WREA’s monthly luncheon at the University Club.
DFR is currently working on a development with Mount Sinai at 1212 Fifth Ave., and building a school on the site Durst owns on W. 57th between 11th and 12th Avenues. In addition DFR has been hired to oversee the construction of the New School’s 65 Fifth Avenue, Time Equities’ neighbor. Demolition on the building has begun and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill has been retained as the architect. I’m looking forward to a new, architecturally distinct building coming to Fifth Avenue below 14th Street. I’m not looking forward to many years of loud construction.
