56 Leonard and Other Stalled Projects Plan Major Comebacks

Thursday, July 28, 2011, by Sara Polsky



Spring was a big season for new developments hitting the market, including some we'd left for dead several years ago. Fall, judging by the roundup in today's Post, will see the trend continue—and this time, the projects for sale will be even pricier. Here now, a roundup of a few new developments to look out for. Get those checkbooks out, folks:

1) 55 Warren: There's not even a hint of listings for this project (and only a teaser website), but broker Reid Price of Town tells the Post the building contains four apartments soon to hit the market. There are three full-floor units and a penthouse duplex (with a pool!), priced from $6.6 million to $16.5 million.

2) 56 Leonard: Consider the news about 55 Warren a warm-up for this, the biggest shocker in the Post roundup: frozen 56 Leonard is expected to relaunch next year. The design changes will allegedly be only "minor," according to Corcoran Sunshine's Kelly Mack. Color us skeptical.

3) 84 Bedford Street: This is a new nine-unit building waiting for approval to start sales. Prices should be around $1,650/square foot.

4) 57 Reade: There's still no firm on-market date for this new Tribeca condo (best known for destabilizing the foundation of its historic neighbor). But it's on the way, the broker promises, with occupancy expected this fall and pricing to start around $1,173/square foot.

5) 2130 Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard: That's right: Harlem zombie building Dafina lives! It's returning to the market this week.

This is one of the projects that seem too tall to me. If it was roughly 50m smaller, it would look better. At this height, it just looks out of proportion. Besides the fact I'm not really fond of the location either.

I hope they're going ahead with other projects like Verre first, which are far superior to this rather odd one imho.

I see this as a chance to expand LM to the north. This one is roughly 10 block away from WTC2. Between 56 Leonard and WTC2 will be a "gap" in the skyline in the future, which will be filled up by the woolworth building and 99 Church. It might happen that future developer will build skyscrapers between Vesey street and Leonard street and create a new canyon.

Much as I want this to happen (it's my favorite other than Verre) the report does say 'color us skeptical.'

As much as I love this tower, tall buildings do not belong in TriBeCa which is a beautiful, historic area. I'll take this one but don't want more.

What's funny is that for all the talk about NYC developers eschewing starchitecture, several very high profile starchitect-designed buildings are pushing their way through the pipeline:

One57
56 Leonard
The Bjarke-Ingalls westside pyramid
Tower Verre
Raphael Vinoly's Drake site tower and Domino developments

-not to mention Frank Gehry's tallest building to date.

The only big job left to resuscitate is One Madison. So much for NYC being a barren architectural desert!

The amount of stararchitects is no measurement for quality though.

It's always a question of surroundings, the overall urban landscape and the final design.
Ego-architects get way too much attention these days.

I agree. If Renzo Piano never sets foot in NYC again, it'll be too soon.

Curbed has no insight. The developers wouldn't file NB permits if they did not intend to proceed.

There is a great demand in NY for "mid-level" apartments priced in the $2,500/sf range. A new building on the UWS with units in that range sold out immediately when sales opened a few months ago.

This building is incredible. It's my wildest dreams that something like this would find it's way to Seattle. Then of course the city would have to grow a pair and approve it...if only...
