HFZ might contribute to the starchitecture!

Ziel Feldman has now revealed two designs he is toying with for the upcoming 76 11th Ave. between 17th and 18th streets.
Speaking to the Young Men’s/Women’s Real Estate Association Tuesday in Midtown, he said the address could change also.
It is, of course, contingent on branding and culturally superstitious buyers. The Chinese “love eights,” Feldman noted, while 18 is “Chai” and luck for Jewish folks. (Or he could go the patriotic route with 17/76, but that’s just me.)
Feldman, head of HFZ Capital, is in contract to close in April on his purchase of the full block — a former parking lot — from Edison Properties. The possibly record land price, which Feldman declined to discuss, has been previously reported to be $600 million to $700 million and comes with the right to develop more than 760,000 square feet of residential, retail and hotel space.
The fiscally cautious Feldman, who said “Brooklyn scares us” with land pricing at $400 a foot and lower sales prices, was willing however, to take an even higher-stakes gamble with a dramatic project and higher costs — but that would garner higher sales prices.
That’s because it’s all about location — sandwiched between the High Line and Hudson River, both of which border the site to the east and west respectively (along with Chelsea Piers), while to the north is the iceberg-like low-rise IAC building.
A drone-created video shows long-range views as the prospective project rises to 38 stories and 400 feet — it would be a lost trifle in Midtown.
Feldman has very rough preliminary proposals in-hand for a two-building development from both Rem Koolhaas and Bjarke Ingels (founder of firm BIG), whose pyramid design for Durst at 12th Avenue and West 57th Street is currently getting some windows.
No one has been hired, and nothing is inked or set in brick for the full block site. Both architects have suggested somewhat triangular structures that won’t block views.
BIG’s is a low building for a hotel and retail and a higher one with more bulk at the top for the tower closest to the water. The project will include a small park while a porte cochere could run between the buildings.
“We have two buildings and need to make sure they don’t face each other,” Feldman added, drawing laughs when he referenced the nearby Standard Hotel as being “built for voyeurism and for having sex in the windows” — and not what he wanted for his project.
He will also be targeting smaller units as he says condominium buyers are worried more about the total costs than the square footage.

Here's an article from the Daily news reported last month in regard to HFZ's plans for the site.

Full High Line block to be transformed into mixed use building inspired by luxe tower One Beacon Court

Ziel Feldman's HFZ Capital is drafting provisional plans for the Chelsea tower

http://www.nydailynews.com/life-styl...icle-1.2075121



Quote:
Big time real estate developer Ziel Feldman wants to bring a little uptown chic to the High Line.

Feldman, whose company HFZ Capital is preparing to close on an $800 million deal to buy a whole square block development site in West Chelsea, said his plans for the property are inspired by One Beacon Court, the mixed-use tower often known as the Bloomberg Building at 151 E. 58th St.

The company is working on a concept for the site that would include a similar driveway-cum-courtyard as the one has become the defining characteristic of the 55-story Midtown tower, which was designed by architect Cesar Pelli and his son Rafael and has served as home to big name residents such as Flavio Briatore and Beyoncé.

The new "architecturally significant" 800,000-square-foot tower, which would occupy the block between 17th and 18th Sts. from 10th Ave. to the West Side Highway and could go as high as 400 feet, would include a retail component on the ground floors, a named brand hotel in the middle and condos up top, Feldman said of his plans, which are still provisional. It would be one of the tallest buildings in the neighborhood.

"We think this is the nicest piece of real estate in the city," Feldman said, noting that the hotel concept would likely be similar to the one that Larry Silverstein employed with the Four Seasons hotel at 30 Park Place in Lower Manhattan.

Feldman is buying the site from longtime owners the Edison family, who operated the site as a parking lot.

The median price for a Chelsea condo is currently more than $4 million, or $2,212 per square foot, according to listings website CityRealty. But if Feldman's tower truly has the same cachet at One Beacon Court, buyers could see prices drift as high as $6,000 a foot, sources said.

A penthouse at the Midtown building is currently on the market for a whopping $82 million.

A 400' tower would be no joke for the high line!

That's an old rendering from before HFZ got this. I hope that Ziel goes with BIG.

As for Mayor de Blasio’s affordable housing push, Feldman said that density and height are “music to my ears,” but “if I have to have more affordable, it has to pencil out.”

That's what Avalon just paid for the Am Bible site: $300m for $300k sf of building rights on a parcel that's probably a quarter of an acre at best!

It is confirmed! Bjark Ingels will be the architect for this 400 foot tower.

Apparently on this site there will be 2 buildings. (400' and 300'), The architect for the smaller building is up in the air, but previous articles mention it could be Rem Koolhaus.

Ziel Feldman and His Construction Binge Starts With a Pair of High Line Projects
http://commercialobserver.com/2015/0...line-projects/



Quote:
Commercial Observer: This is for our Midtown South issue, so let’s start with what you’re doing there. When are you closing on 518 West 18th Street, which spans West 17th to West 18th Streets and from 10th Avenue to the West Side Highway?

Mr. Feldman: We signed the contract in November of last year. We’re closing in April.

What’s the sale price?
It hasn’t been disclosed and I can’t [tell you] until after the closing.

What address will you use for it?
76 11th Avenue or you know, 18 is a good number, generally, but I’m not sure yet.

What’s going on there?
We’ll have a garage, we’ll have retail, potentially a hotel, restaurants, galleries. We’ll have a beautiful [public] park in front. One building is 400 feet high and one is 300 feet high. The blocks stagger between 80 feet high and 220 feet high. This was a special permit done by the seller [Edison Properties and its equity partners]—in return for giving a park to the city of New York. I think the footprint here is probably about [10,000] to 12,000 feet. And there’s a great entry into our buildings and our hotel through the park. You are going to enter [the building] from the side. All the retail will be [on the side]. This park will definitely have access to the High Line. Maybe we potentially build retail beneath the park. We were very busy between 2009 and 2014. We didn’t buy anything in 2014 until this site came along.

Why not?
Because we found things to be mispriced—a lot of aggressive underwriting.

What was the asking price?
There wasn’t an asking price. They whispered a certain number. At one point there were offers higher than ours. We just convinced them that we’d be the best buyers. There’s nothing to compare.

And how big will the retail component be?
Probably will have as much as 60,000 feet, generally. Whether or not we have [additional] retail [on 12th Avenue] as well, we did not include that because we’re not sure. Twelfth Avenue is a big retail corridor, so this may have townhomes, but it’s really a work in progress.

Who’s the architect?
BIG is our design architect. We are going to team [BIG head Bjarke Ingels] up with some others but we have not decided yet who. So we’ll have an interior design architect [and] an executive architect.

Where will the hotel component be?
If we have a self-standing hotel this would be the east building—maybe with residential above. Whatever hotel it is, it will service and brand the entire project.

Have you selected the hotel brand yet?
We’re talking to many. [It will be] four, five stars. This location is very young—couples, kind of hip. It’s increasingly wealthy. So I’m not sure that most of the five-star brands like the Four Seasons are appropriate for this location. A lot of the plans are still in flux.
If you look here [he points to an early project model], you’ll see both buildings are being designed, even as it changes, so that they’re not blocking each other. So the view of the water is unencumbered. See that gap? We have an office component on one or two floors because there is some demand for 100,000 feet maybe of office in the base.

Of the main building?
Maybe of both buildings and stretching over a bridge of sorts.

You’re responding to a demand for 100,000-square-foot floor plates then?
Well, this area has become a huge demand for office. Google keeps expanding.

Are you trying to get Google in here?
They were one of the bidders on the property. We’ll talk to them more closely.

Why did you want that particular site?
Well we’re building a block away, right at 505 West 19th Street, so we know the area really well. [The 11th Avenue site] allows you to build 850,000 feet. You’re on the water and you’re on the High Line. But the best part about it is it’s going to be the highest building allowed in all of the High Line. The property is what they call shovel ready; it’s all been remediated. It’s the cleanest site we’ve ever been involved with from a construction standpoint

What’s the status at 505 West 19th Street?
We’re just about finished with two 120-foot high towers by Thomas Juul-Hansen. It’s two 10-story buildings connected underneath the High Line. It’s residential [with] about 35 units. We’re going to be starting to close on this in about four months, so not that far away.

Why did you want two sites so close to each other?
Every developer would like to build additional buildings near other successful buildings that he’s built, especially if the earlier ones are already built and sold out.

Ok, so they won't be marketed to the Billionaires but it will still be pricey.

Bjarke Ingels NYC Condos Won’t Be at Ultra-Luxury Prices
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articl...at-chelsea-lot

Quote:
Ziel Feldman’s HFZ Capital Group just bought one of the most expensive development sites ever sold in Manhattan. He won’t be building the city’s priciest condos there.

“I don’t want to be hostage to a $10-to-$20 million condo market,” Feldman said in an interview. “I don’t want to be in that market a year or two from now.”

HFZ paid $870 million for a full square block in Chelsea, nestled between the High Line elevated park and 11th Avenue and beside Barry Diller’s IAC/InterActive Corp. headquarters. The deal, completed May 7, was the most expensive New York City lot sale since a partnership including Extell Development Co. paid $919 million for a much larger site on the Upper West Side almost a decade ago, according to Real Capital Analytics Inc.



To recoup his investment, Feldman plans to build smaller than the competition, figuring that the market has more than enough choices for the ultra-wealthy. The project, still under design by architect Bjarke Ingels Group, will have two buildings of about 28 and 38 stories, respectively. Apartments will average 1,500 to 2,000 square feet (139 and 186 square meters).

That’s roughly half the size of new luxury condos that have sold in Manhattan since 2013, data from appraiser Miller Samuel Inc. show. Developers since the credit crisis have focused on building ever-larger apartments in an appeal to multimillionaire buyers seeking havens for cash.

The price per square foot at the Chelsea site will probably range from $3,750 to $4,000, Feldman said. That’s in line with the average for new luxury condos that traded in the first quarter, according to Jonathan Miller, president of Miller Samuel and a Bloomberg View contributor.

“It’s still high-end luxury,” Miller said. “The price per foot is consistent with what’s already being constructed. The only difference is that the units are smaller.”

‘Pricing Well’

Condos at Feldman’s project, at 501 W. 17th St., will start at less than $4 million, he said.

“If you’re pricing well, your audience is much greater,” he said. “We want to be able to deliver a product that people will hopefully wait in line for.”

Prices for newly built Manhattan apartments have been climbing rapidly as developers try to profit in the face of escalating land costs. New condos will sell this year for an average of $5.9 million, up from $4.8 million in 2014, according to estimates by CityRealty.

The value of all new apartments sold last year totaled $4.1 billion, a 52 percent jump from 2013, even though the two years had about the same number of purchases, the data firm said.

HFZ’s West Chelsea development may have as many as 300 apartments, most with two or three bedrooms, according to Feldman. One-bedroom units will probably be smaller than 1,500 square feet and can be combined by buyers to make larger homes, he said.

Restaurant, Concierge

While he paid a high price for the land, Feldman estimates he’ll spend less by building towers that don’t aspire to touch the clouds. While skyscrapers of 60 to 70 stories cost about $1,200 to $1,300 a square foot to build, “the costs are half that” for his project, Feldman said.

“You don’t need the height because you’re already on the water, you’re already on the High Line,” he said.

Feldman envisions a “self-contained kind of city” with a courtyard where cars can drop off residents, and amenities such as a restaurant and fitness center. He might add a hotel in the smaller building if he can find a brand that would boost the project’s cachet. Even without one, residents would enjoy hotel-type services such as concierge and housekeeping, he said.

Public Park

As part of a deal allowing him to build up to 400 feet (122 meters), Feldman is also building a public park at the site that may include a new entrance to the High Line. The park would adjoin retail shops at the base of his buildings.

Ingels was chosen for the project because of his “iconic, extraordinarily creative and somewhat complex” designs, such as the pyramid-shaped apartment building under construction on 57th Street near the West Side Highway, Feldman said. “He’s extraordinarily brilliant, easy to work with.”

The Chelsea development -- expected to be ready in 2018, with sales starting early next year -- will veer from a crowded field of ultra-luxury offerings in Midtown that are due to be completed around the same time.

Properties now under construction include architect Jean Nouvel’s 82-story tower adjacent to the Museum of Modern Art, with a duplex penthouse seeking more than $70 million, and Zeckendorf Development’s 520 Park Ave., where asking prices start at $16.2 million and jump to $130 million for a 12,000-square-foot triplex.

“The stars are aligned to have the best building in the best location where you don’t have to write a check north of $10 million,” Feldman said.

That whole article made me full body cringe. When "under $4 million" is considered "pricing well" there is a problem.

That said, I'm excited to see what BIG comes up with. Since it's the high line the design stakes are higher.

Let's hope they don't use ugly cheap cladding like they did with the pyramid.

First Look At 76 11th Avenue, BIG-Designed Towers Coming To Meatpacking

While the length of the High Line has seen a surge of construction since the elevated park initially opened, there are still a few major sites that remain ripe for new development. Perhaps the largest such parcel is at 76 11th Avenue, between 17th and 18th Streets, which was acquired by HFZ Capital for $870 million back in April. Now, YIMBY can reveal the site’s preliminary plans, created by Bjarke Ingels Group.

The project will total nearly 800,000 square feet, and will be split between two buildings. The western tower will rise 402 feet while its eastern counterpart will stand 302 feet, and both will sit atop an active base featuring a major retail component as well as a hotel.

Retail will span the entire first floor, and per stacking diagrams, the space could also include a gallery. The next three floors will feature a hotel, as well as the residential amenities, which will be arranged inside the hotel, surrounding a courtyard.

Plans include approximately 50,000 square feet of retail, 150,000 square feet of hotel, and roughly 550,000 square feet of residential and amenity space. The exact unit count is not stated, but previous reports indicated it would be approximately 300 condominiums.

Old plans had the hotel extending through the shorter High Line-facing building, but the most recent version has turned both towers entirely residential. The massing of the structures is defined by a diagonal cut through the site, which would allow units on the southern edge of the western tower to see the High Line.
With these renders.

Back in November, YIMBY posted the first renderings for 76 Eleventh Avenue, which is being developed by HFZ Capital. Now, we have a new set of images for the project, which is being designed by Bjarke Ingels Group.

The project’s makeup is evidently still undergoing changes, as the developers have waffled between either hotel or office options in the base of the buildings.

In any case, the buildings will become the most prominent in the neighborhood by a significant margin. The two towers will stand 28 and 38 floors apiece, topping-out 402 feet above street level – towering over the nearby Chelsea Market as well as the Standard Hotel, a few blocks to the south.

Per the EB-5 materials, there will be 260 condominiums on the upper floors of the project. The base will hold 85,000 square feet of retail space, as well as 130 hotel rooms, and 100 parking spaces. Funding will be provided in the form of a $1.23 billion senior loan, a $258 million EB-5 mezzanine loan, and $225 million in developer equity.

HFZ bought the site, which spans the entire block between 17th and 18th Streets and Tenth and Eleventh Avenues, for $870 million back in April of 2014. Completion is currently expected in 2018.
And more renders.











Personally I think BIG is better with smaller buildings like this than 2WTC.
