Models coming back to New York for Fashion Week and wondering what the hell happened to their go-to, Double Seven, can rest assured: Owner David Rabin tells us he just got the designs in and construction will start at the former Rhone space on Gansevoort Street next month. Expect a new Double Seven several months thereafter. No timetable yet for his mystery project in the old Lotus digs, but the nearby Standard hotel ramped up construction in order to open its public space for an Interview magazine party last night. Padma, of course, made the scene. Whatever. Call us when the rooftop pool goes in.
The scene at the Standard.
