The following New Building permit was filed. The tower will be 29 stories and 441 feet to the highest occupied floor -- probably 500 feet to the top.

Since this is such a small building (i.e., 450k sf), it seems that it's being built on spec. like Minskoff's 51 Astor Place, which is 500k sf. I guess with a tower this small, a developer doesn't need a pre-construction lease to secure financing, as this likely will be filled with a bunch of small users of 10,000 to 200,000 sf.

NY Post"Reality Check"
Steve Cuozzo

15 Feb 2011


There’s a new name for 1045 Sixth Ave. — oops, Avenue of the Americas — the 28-story office tower to be built by Hines and partner Pacolet Milliken Enterprises on the west blockfront between 39th and 40th streets.

It will be 7 Bryant Park, an “address” just approved by the Manhattan borough president’s office. It’s the second project to enjoy the association after 1 Bryant Park, the Durst Organization/Bank of America’s tower at 42nd Street.

The tower designed by Pei Cobb Freed & Partners boasts triangular notches at its northeast corner that offer park views to tenants and seem to gracefully nod to the park from the outside.

CB Richard Ellis titan Mary Ann Tighe, who heads up the leasing team, said, “We believe Bryant Park has become a high-end district in its own right, like the Plaza District.”

Hines recently posted a new website for this tower, which has a nice video too.

Being 500 feet tall on Bryant Park, I don't even think this can be considered "filler" haha you probably won't be able to see almost any of it from either Brooklyn or Jersey. Oh well, at least it is replacing those old nasty buildings...

It's small by NY standards, but it's the same size as two major projects in the City of London: Vinoly's Fenchurch St tower and the Willis Tower.

Distinctive "Green" Glass Tower To Rise By Bryant Park

By Jill Urban



In recent years there have been a few new developments taking shape around Bryant Park in Midtown Manhattan. And now another one is in store for the park’s southwest corner, an ultra-modern boutique office building called 7 Bryant Park.

“7 Bryant Park will be a 28-story building, 470,000-square-feet. It’s really aimed at boutique-scale users. Those users will take advantage of a new building right in the heart of Midtown in the transportation triangle,” says Tommy Craig, senior managing director at Hines Development. Located on the corner of 40th Street and Sixth Avenue, this steel and glass tower will offer tenants direct views of the park, the public library and other city landmarks.

The tower is being developed by Hines Development and its mission is to create a building that can offer small and modest-sized companies big business infrastructure. “We have column-free trading floors with a 65-foot span. We have high-density occupancy. We have ultimately high-density electrical and cooling loads and we really planned spaces in the core, in the equipment rooms,” Craig says.

The building will also incorporate the latest in environmentally friendly technology. The base level will offer a small retail component but it has not been determined what kind of tenant will occupy that space. The building’s unique hourglass look, designed by Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, was inspired by Bryant Park and the area around it.

“This building is designed for its place. It’s very distinctive. It’s a glass and steel building with a very distinctive element in the corner, two cones, one pointing up and one pointing down. That’s what you’ll remember. That’s what makes this building special in the city. Those conical incisions face Bryant Park and celebrate that location on Bryant Park,” says Henry Cob, partner at Pei Cobb & Partners.

The project just received the financing, which means construction will begin later this year. It should take about two years, so tenants should be able to move in by the end of 2014.

On a site at the southwest corner of the park that is owned by the investment company Pacolet Milliken Enterprises, construction will begin in November on a 28-story tower to be called 7 Bryant Park. The investment company selected Hines, an international real estate firm, to assist in the tower’s development, and the tower should be completed by late 2014.

Good timing for this one to start:

Bryant Park offices see higher rents and lower vacancies than rest of Midtown



Quote:
Office rents are rising near Bryant Park and that area is outperforming the rest of Midtown, a new report shows.

A Jones Lang LaSalle study found Bryant Park’s vacancy at just 3.8 percent in the second quarter of 2012 — a third of Midtown’s 11.5 vacancy rate. In that same period, rents around the park were $78.29 per square foot, compared to Manhattan’s $63.40 average rent per square-foot, the New York Times reported. Bryant Park stands in particular contrast to the traditionally strong Plaza district, which has been seeing high vacancy rates. The construction of One Bryant Park and a handful of high-rise upgrades and renovations have contributed to the trend. “Bryant Park is now established as a hub of top-priced office space, and the park itself is the nucleus of this submarket,” Mary Ann Tighe, chief executive of commercial brokerage CBRE, told the Times.

The tower at 475 Fifth Avenue soon see an overhaul and construction on a new 28-story office building, and construction at 7 Bryant Park, is slated to begin later this year.

Hi all,

Took this from my office. Sorry for such poor quality, but it looks like there was some activity on site today.

Hines is now moving with 7 Bryant Park and with 56 Leonard. Now they need to start Torre Verre!
