Macklowe Speaks! Drake Will Be 'a Capstone'
Email Print More...By Matt Chaban
May 23, 2011 | 11:48 a.m.

Let's dance!
+Enlarge Patrick McMullan It has been arguably the most watched development site in the city for the past few years, and all the moreso now as Harry Macklowe and his new partners at CIM prepare to build something on the former site of the Drake Hotel. Even though both developers eschew press, details have dribbled out here and there, including a set of drawings for Macklowe's plan of three years ago for a 65-story Armani-branded hotel/condo.

Now, for the first time, the taciturn Mr. Macklowe has spoken publically, if still vaguely, about his plans, talking them up at a Massey Knakal-sponsored conference on Friday, according to Bloomberg:

"I'm pleased to tell you we're moving forward on a piece of land that we own free and clear," Macklowe said yesterday. The development, planned for the site at Park and East 56th Street, "will be a capstone. It will be a monumental building and will be as much of an icon as the Apple cube," in front of the General Motors Building, he said.


Humunah humanah humanah!

A lot of teasers, but still no design.

Drake Hotel tops most valuable NYC development sites list
June 21, 2011 12:00PM



Harry Maclowe and the Drake Hotel site Harry Macklowe's Drake Hotel site at 440 Park Avenue may be the most valuable development site in New York City, according to a recent list compiled by the New York Observer. It is closely followed by David Levinson's 425 Park Avenue and the World Trade Center site, in positions two and three respectively.

The Observer's list, made in honor of a slew of recent development following a slow start to the year, was compiled using data from Cassidy Turley, Co-Star and its own reporting.

Bringing up the rear of the list in positions nine and 10 are Boston Properties and Related project 740 Eighth Avenue and a 100,000-square-foor glass tower at 450 West 14th Street, atop the High Line.

Back in February, construction was slow as financing remained sluggish and office leasing had only slightly begun to pick up. Since then, development has picked up rapidly, the Observer said. CIM and Harry Macklowe have announced plans for the Drake Hotel site, Gary Barnett's International Gem Tower is rising, Boston Properties' West 55th Street development has signed its first major leases and Hudson Yards is on the verge of doing the same.

Macklowe said of the Drake Hotel site, which will feature an Apple-esque glass cube: "[It] will be a capstone. It will be a monumental building."
