I'm speechless, amazing! And great location, it needs something new, though I wish it was a bit taller.

Bad news: Five Franklin halted during construction and the mortgage was sold off to a different developer. Naturally, they had to scrap the original design in favor of a cheap, hideous value-engineered piece of sh*t.

Craziest Rendering of 2008 Becomes Least Crazy of 2011
5:00 PM, Oct. 17 2011



Paging 2008. 2008, do you copy? We'd like 5 Franklin Place back, please. Dutch architect Ben van Berkel's black and bendy vision was our favorite crazy rendering of 2008, and with good reason. But the building never rose above two stories thanks to mortgage issues, and after several twists and turns, Israeli firm Fishman Holdings picked up the property in September. They planned for luxury condos, and The Real Deal gets the first peek at the new design. Details: there will be 19 stories and 58 units—no word on pricing yet—with construction to start in the first quarter of 2012.

Elad To pay $46 Mln For Tribeca Condo Project

Quote:
The long-stalled development at 5 Franklin Place in Tribeca is in contract to sell to Elad Properties, Elad confirmed to The Real Deal today. The contract price is $44.75 million, according to Fishman’s executive vice president, Yehuda Mor.

The seller, Fishman Holdings, had planned a 19-story, 58-unit condominium, after successfully bidding for the property at a September 2011 foreclosure auction. Construction has not begun, despite Fishman’s statement last year that it would start in the first quarter of this year. Foundations have been laid, however, according to an Elad spokesperson, who added that the firm, best-known for the controversial condo conversion of the Plaza Hotel, had redesigned the building slightly. “We are very optimistic about the Tribeca market,” said Tom Elliott, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Elad. “We are looking forward to the upside.”

Sales are expected to launch in January of 2013, Elliott said. “We think its a wonderful site, and we wish a lot of success to Elad in their new venture,” Mor said.

The 18,747-square-foot property was acquired for $36.6 million in 2006 by an entity called Franklin Place LLC that affiliated with Manhattan-based developer Sleepy Hudson, which had intended to construct a 20-story, 55-unit condo.

In September of last year, Fishman paid slightly less than the mortgage lien of $47 million for the property. Fishman was the only bidder in the foreclosure auction.

Tribeca's Long-Awaited 5 Franklin Place Unveils Its New Look



Quote:
Thursday, February 28, 2013

Tribeca's 5 Franklin Place, one of those boom-time new developments that's been regrettably redesigned several times since 2008 but never built, can't let 56 Leonard get all the unarrested development glory. Now just called Franklin Place, the building announced earlier this month that sales would resume soon, and that there was a new architect, ODA, on board. Above, the first teaser rendering of the ODA design

Looks fine. One wavy building is enough for NYC. More room for it to stand out...
