Yeah, although considering that a one bedroom apt in the Silver Towers next door is going for $4100 a month, people renting here won't be poor either...

Silverstein Will Roll Out Case for Hudson Yards Mega-High Rise



Quote:
Attorneys for Silverstein Properties will present their case for turning a two-acre Hudson Yards site at 520 West 41st Street into a 1,100-foot-tall residential and commercial tower in the proposal’s first public hearing at the Department of City Planning tomorrow morning.

The plan would turn “Projected Development Site 46” of the 2005 rezoning from a potential office tower to a mega-high rise with 1,400 residential units, 175 units of corporate housing, 300,000 square feet of retail space and a 10,000-square-foot covered public open space; and the Silverstein team will argue with Chairman Larry Silverstein‘s signature vehemence on Thursday that only residential development would unlock the potential of the site that’s adjacent to the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and approaches to the Lincoln Tunnel.

“The applicant believes that the proposed zoning text changes to facilitate the residential development at the site are appropriate and necessary as the project site has unique qualities and characteristics that make it more suitable for residential development while at the same time unsuitable for large-scale office development,” reads a draft environmental study document that rolls out a litany of reasons for the shift to residential in advance of the proposed rezoning plan’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure.

[...]



Tower and plaza: Is it still 1961?

That's not the design. It's just intended to indicate the height and general mass.

Thanks for the renders.

I think I like this design better than 432 Park Avenue.

No news at all.

last I read just right after that CB hearing, the article stated Silverstein now has to wait for the Dept of Planning to authorize and sign off on the exemption to allow residential on the current zoning.

IMO, the zoning regulation will be modified to allow Silverstein to build his tower.

Hopefully the wait won't be a long one. Silverstein is in great health but the dude STILL is 83!

They're massing models, but considering what 225 West 57th Street became, disappointment will likely ensue. Although I can't see it being uglier than 432 Park...

They haven't released a design for 225 W 57th yet but even if they had what does that mean for this tower? Silverstein usually creates quality towers and for that matter extel does too.

Silverstein Seeks Demo Permit for Hudson Yards Tower
http://commercialobserver.com/2014/0...n-yards-tower/



Quote:
Larry Silverstein‘s Silverstein Properties is seeking a permit to demolish a Hudson Yards building, according to city records. That would pave the way for the developer’s planned mixed-use tower, which would soar 1,100 feet into the sky.

Attorneys for Silverstein Properties were slated to present their case for changing the zoning of the Hudson Yards site at 520 West 41st Street in the proposal’s first public hearing at the Department of City Planning at the end of last month, as Commercial Observer previously reported. The outcome of the hearing wasn’t immediately clear.

Silverstein’s plans call for developing 1,400 residential units, 175 units of corporate housing, 300,000 square feet of retail space and a 10,000-square-foot covered public open space at the two-acre site.

Siri & Marsik Architects is listed on the DOB application as the architect of record. No one was available in the firm’s office to comment. Silverstein’s spokesman didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Inside the 7 Train’s Delayed Far West Side Expansion
http://commercialobserver.com/2014/0...ide-expansion/

Quote:
Do you remember the long-promised 7 train subway extension? Seven years after Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced with great fanfare that the 7 line would extend to 11th Avenue and 34th Street, the opening was postponed—again—in June.

Lost in the complaints about cost overruns and a completion date now set for December is the controversy over the aborted subway station at 41st Street and 10th Avenue. Since the time that the Bloomberg administration made it clear that it would not pursue the station, a city-within-a-city has arisen in the area west of Ninth Avenue between 43rd and 38th Streets. While Hudson Yards remains a sea of construction cranes and earth movers, the area north of the city’s largest remaining development area has become a boomtown, with thousands of residents.

The collective shrug over the scrapped station is an object lesson in how the city considers its mass transit priorities—and the acquiescence of the city’s development community.

Even Gene Russianoff, the voluble head of the Straphangers Campaign, has given up the fight. “It’s tough to go back now,” he said. “They’d have to start from scratch. It was once ‘now or never.’ The result is never. The horse is out of the barn. It’s too late to build it now. It would cost a fortune.”

According to Christine Berthet, the founder of Chekpeds, a non-profit group that advocates for publication transportation on the West Side, the developers who have flocked to build high rises in the area did so with the expectation that the city would, indeed, be building a station in the area. “Now,” she said, “we are suffering from the loss of that. All the buildings around 42nd Street and 10th Avenue have hired small bus companies to shuttle residents to the subway. All this is only adding congestion to the neighborhood.”

The lack of a station angers Elliott Sclar, a professor of urban planning and director of the Center for Sustainable Urban Development at Columbia University. “I’m having trouble understanding why they wouldn’t build the subway stop,” he said. “It was an incremental amount of money on top of this huge project. I can’t figure out for the life of me why, if you’re putting the line in, you wouldn’t put the goddamn subway stop in or make provisions for it. It’s a marginal amount of money!”

The cost actually wouldn’t have been all that marginal, even by the mega-budget standards of a new subway line in New York City. The original estimate for just a study ran into the millions, and to construct a “ghost station” that would at least be there in case the money ever materialized to make it a reality topped out at $700 million.

I'm just amazed the second avenue subway hasn't been cancelled. The cost of this station being 700 million dollars is just absurd. I thought it was more like 300 million back when the decision was made.

Silverstein pays $100M-plus for West Side site

The developer, best known for its World Trade Center office buildings, has bought a one-block site near the Lincoln Tunnel entrance, where it hopes to put up a 900-unit apartment tower.

http://www.crainsnewyork.com/article...west-side-site

Quote:
Silverstein Properties has closed on its purchase of 514 11th Ave., a former Mercedes-Benz dealership on the far West Side, where the development firm is planning to build an ultra-tall residential tower.

According to sources familiar with the deal, the company, best known for its work building office skyscrapers at the World Trade Center site, is paying more than $100 million for the site.

Silverstein Properties first entered into a contract for the parcel with the luxury automaker back in 2011. Mercedes then relocated its dealership to the base of developer Two Trees' new luxury rental building Mercedes House, between West 53rd and West 54th streets.

Silverstein Properties is currently in the process of a land-use review with the city to try to change the commercial zoning on 514 11th Ave. to allow for residential development. Several renderings by the developer have been released in recent years, revealing plans for one or possibly two soaring spires with sizable ground-floor retail space at the site, which takes up the full block between West 40th and West 41st streets, and between 11th Avenue and a mid-block on-ramp to the Lincoln Tunnel.

One plan that drew widespread attention envisions a pair of spires connected at the top by a large enclosed horizontal platform. A source said Silverstein Properties has shifted its focus to a single tower that could be more than 1,000-feet tall and accommodate 900 units of rental housing.

The development site sits just east of Silver Towers, a pair of residential buildings holding more than 1,300 units that were built in recent years by Silverstein Properties.

If they closed on it, they must have a pretty good sense that they're going to get their way in the land-use review. Here's hoping.
