Yes. Something small (e.g., 5 to 10 stories), nice, and very expensive will rise there. It's long overdue.

NYC Developers Race to the Top

It’s a race to the top as developers are reaching higher and higher with impressive glass skyscrapers that house exclusive apartments and panoramic views across Manhattan, level with some of the city’s tallest buildings. Gary Barnett of Extell Development Co. is the man behind the 1,005 foot high One57 tower in Midtown Manhattan. He announced last month that he would be developing the tallest residential building in New York City (without the help of a spire). Adrian Smith, chosen as the architect for the job, is best known for his work on the Burj Dubai. The new building, still in its early stages of design planning and financing, will tower over the Empire State Building at a planned 1600 feet, that’s just 176 feet shy of World Trade One, the tallest building in Manhattan.

A nice hotel by Ten-Arcitectos was planned for this site. Does anyone know the status? I rarely get to this area.

Hotelier Ian Schrager Buys 215 Chrystie Street for $50M
Friday, December 28, 2012, by Jessica Dailey
Share on email
57

215-chrystie-schrager.jpgJust when we thought today would be another boring news day, the Journal reports that boutique hotelier Ian Schrager (of Studio 54 fame), along with a few investors, plunked down $50 million to purchase 215 Chrystie Street. The empty lot is set to host a 25-story tower with a hotel on the first 17 floors and condos on the rest. The land actually served as a garden for low-income tenants in a neighboring building, but a deal was reached to allow the development to move forward.

The new finger building will tower over the neighbors, who are already complaining about the plans. The Sperone Westwater Gallery pulled out the nimby card as the new building will block light into the gallery, and they have hired a big time environmental law attorney to start a legal battle to try and stop the hotel. If the suit doesn't stop the hotel, what can we expect? According to the Journal, Schrager plans for the hotel to be part of his new brand called Public, "which is designed to be avant-garde but less expensive than many boutique hotels."

World-Wide Group’s 57th Street project will rise 715 feet, will house larger units



Quote:
January 04, 2013 08:30AM

Amid One57, 432 Park Avenue and 225 West 57th Street, yet another luxury apartment tower — one that has been slated to go up on the thoroughfare there since 2009 – will rise on 57th Street, the New York Observer reported.

World-Wide Group’s long-planned tower at 250 East 57th Street, the mixed-use development that stalled in the recession, is no longer of indeterminate height, the Observer said. Records filed with the city show the building, at Second Avenue, will rise to the originally-planned 57 stories — some 715 feet.
The architect, Roger Duffy at SOM, is reportedly changing the design to smooth out the crisp angles in favor of "undulating curves", according to ArchPaper. Updates as soon as we get them...

Two Trees Management solicits proposals for portion of Domino Sugar site



Quote:
Two Trees Management is soliciting proposals for an interim use of a 55,000-square-foot swath of the Domino Sugar site in Williamsburg, Curbed reported. The request for proposals for the site, dubbed Site E, will go live tomorrow. The parcel is a vacant lot located on Kent Avenue between South 3rd and South 4th streets. It will be available come this March for a year or more.

First, Two Trees is seeking something that will appeal to all Williamsburg residents. Second, the developer wants a responsible group that is well organized and will be a good neighbor. In addition, Two Trees expects applicants to include details on the costs of their plans.
That's a generous portion of the site. neighborhood groups might want a supermarket there among other options...

36 Story Marriott Edition Hotel Planned For T.S.



Quote:
There’s a Marriott Edition hotel, a boutique outfit that Marriott International launched in 2007, being planned for Times Square — at 47th Street and Seventh Avenue, the Wall Street Journal reported. The project will be a 36-story hotel and retail development. The brand has reportedly struck a tentative agreement with a development group including Steven Witkoff and Mark Siffin, who are investors, and Winthrop Realty Trust to brand and operate the property.

The recession, which began not long after Marriott Edition brand launched, stunted the brand’s growth. It had originally been a partnership with hotelier Ian Schraeger.

“We are aggressively pursuing opportunities for our Edition brand,” a Marriott spokesperson told the Journal.

Pier 17 construction slated to start July 1



Quote:
The Dallas-based Howard Hughes Corporation is forging ahead with its plans to redevelop Pier 17 in Lower Manhattan. Following an engineering inspection of the site’s stability following Hurricane Sandy, which deemed the site to be sound, David Wenreb, Howard Hughes’ CEO, told the New York Times that it will begin construction by July 1.

The plan is still undergoing the city’s land use process and the July 1 construction deadline comes as part of an agreement between the developer and the city’s Economic Development Corporation.

The new pier building will have two levels of retail space, each of which with some 60,000 square feet.

“I think Lower Manhattan will only benefit from a density of retail experiences,” Elizabeth Berger, president of the Alliance for Downtown New York, told the Times.

However, as previously reported, the site could be closed for two years when construction starts.

Update on Galerie 515 on 9th Avenue in Hells Kitchen. This one unfortunately has turned out pretty crappy. Apparently the developers didn't get the memo this is New York, not communist era East Berlin. Maybe they'll do something more with the cladding? :shrug:

Looks like some work has started at 435 West 50th Street, which is a Ralph Walker building that is being rehabilitated by the same developer who is doing the Walker Tower. It should turn out nice. Some details from Curbed follow:

Walker Tower Gets a Sequel With Hell's Kitchen Conversion

Wednesday, August 1, 2012



Now that sales at Walker Tower, the conversion of a Chelsea building designed by Ralph Walker, are underway, developers JDS and Property Markets Group can move on to their next project—another conversion of a Ralph Walker building a bit further uptown. That building is 435 West 50th Street, and the Observer notes that the project just got $25 million in funding from Starwood Capital last week. Congrats, friend! Above, a before-and-after of the conversion. Seventeen stories of the building will get the condo treatment, for a total of 65 residential units. Chelsea's Walker Tower definitely has the edge when it comes to location, but perhaps it will help to inspire a more widespread Walker fever that will help its 50th Street sibling.

529 West 29th Street is a 15-story project that is well underway. It is developed by Related and located on the same block 500 West 30th Street.

I passed this project recently and it seems demolition is in full swing. The building permits have been filed but not approved.

New Tower Plan Headed for West 28th Along the High Line
Curbed

Monday, April 2, 2012

Crews are ripping up the roof of the former Club Quo at 511 West 28th Street, prepping the plot for a new batch of residences that will rise along both sides of the High Line, just west of Tenth Avenue. What's to come seems to be a rethinking of a prior plan from Lee Harris Pomeroy Architects, revealed back in 2009, originally a mix of hotel and residential with retail down below. The current plan is from Avinash K. Malhotra Architects for developer Kadima Tenth Avenue SPE; the hotel is now nowhere to be seen but the residential and retail remain. The zoning details are still pending, but the Schedule A on file indicates three separate components, with massing much like what was seen before. When it's all done, this will be a gateway, presumably in glass, a portal for park-goers passing through on their way to the mega-hood that Related and team envisions for the blocks to the north.

Along the High Line at 28th Street a 14-story slab will rise with 44 units above and a pool in the cellar, all butting up to the ginormous Avalon West Chelsea project that's now digging down next door. Rising over West 29th Street will be a blockier 14-story stack, with 128 units above and parking for 59 vehicles (and 162 bikes) on the lower floors. Across the High Line, at the southwest corner of Tenth and West 29th, a 25-story tower will rise, holding 140 units. Down at street level and below the High Line retail will rule. Whatever architect Avinash Malhotra brings to the block, this will be a big change from the days when this was club land, and another Malhotra partied hard and pole dancing was the way to play. When this development is up along this stretch of elevated park where wildflowers bloom, some re-thinking may be necessary. Perhaps a shade garden will be in order.

I agree. This building came out really nice. I see an upper corner unit with my name on it!
