Here's the site shown in context with Extell's new tower, which is located on the other side of the Lincoln Tunnel exit.

Extell is building an ordinary looking glass building filled with rental units.

106 floors, but pretty short proportionally if they're going with 1,100ft. Not quite as awesome as it sounds... hope they can at least ramp it up another 100ft or so though clearly(and thankfully) not meant as yet another trophy tower catering exclusively to the ten figures and up only club.

Any city in the world would eagerly welcome an 1,100' tower. Anything so grand on this site is a pleasant surprise. It sits on the Lincoln Tinnel roadway.

Yeah, it's not luxury housing, just regular floor heights. If this were condos it would probably be 1400 feet, but I think Silverstein has recognized that the market doesn't need more high end condos; it needs thousands of units that everyday employees can utilize, especially in the heart of a burgeoning new office district.

Also, this area presently is a wasteland. Condo s like the ones rising by 57th St could not sell here.

Non-New Yorkers should look at this address on Google Maps.

I wonder if the MTA owns the land in front of this site where it parks busses. It would be nice if that land becomes a park.

Silverstein to Build Ultra-Tall Tower
http://www.cpexecutive.com/regions/n...004112639.html

Quote:
Developer Larry Silverstein has acquired the former Mercedes-Benz Manhattan site in New York City for more than $100 million, and plans to build an ultra-tall residential tower in its place.

The CBRE team of Michael Laginestra, vice chairman; Michael Geoghegan, vice chairman and co-head of the firm’s consulting services, and Joan Meixner, senior vice president, consulting services, represented Mercedes Benz Manhattan in the transaction.

“The site is not currently zoned for residential so one of the things we needed to do was help monetize the site,” Laginestra told Commercial Property Executive. “We needed to partner with someone who could navigate the value-added waters of development in New York City and the obvious best solution turned out to be Larry Silverstein.”

The property is located at 530 West 41st St., but will change its address to 514 11th St., once the tower is erected.

Mercedes had owned the dealership space since the early ’70s but relocated to 770 11th Ave. in September of 2010. The deal has been in the works ever since, with the time finally right.

According to Geoghegan, the highly complicated sale and development deal was a long time in the making due to numerous approvals required for it to close.

The proposed development will be located nearby Silverstein’s Silver Towers, which consists of twin-towered rental buildings at 600 W. 42nd St., and the 41-story tower at 1 River Place, totaling more than 2,000 residential units.

“Larry Silverstein is a significant investor in the community and saw the value so we were able to structure a deal,” Geoghegan told CPE. “Mercedes was looking to do something really significant on the West Side and tried to embrace the brokerage community and we spent years with them up and down the West Side and came to terms with Mercedes House, 333,000 square feet at 770 11th Ave. They got exactly what they wanted and now with the closing of the existing facility, they can tie a bow around the whole thing.”

Of course, Silverstein is well represented in Manhattan, and last month celebrated the topping out of 30 Park Place, Four Seasons Private Residences New York Downtown, the tallest residential building in the area.

That is totally false. Many cities would absolutely loath a tower that tall and it would be a detriment to many aesthetically. Skyscrapers are not needed in all cities and they are certainly not welcome or wanted in all. Most don't even need them. NYC and other space constrained cities are the exception. The trophy status scraper is a childish game of marketing for brand new or ugly cities to distinguish themselves.

Remember, the number of scrapers is not the issue that anybody with a reasonable understanding of urban areas should be focusing on. It's the quality of the city that is important. Skyscrapers can certainly be a bad influence.if the city isn't designed for them. You have to be careful not to **** up a city. In fact, NYC was probably more beautiful an experience before the scraper boom ever started if u examine old photos. One could argue that scrapers really messed up NYs aesthetic charm where it matters, on the street level. Unfortunately scrapers were needed due to space reasons and they had to demolish the old. The scrapers that rlaced the old ornate buildings were less detailed and plainer for the most part, less nice a street experience. They didn't need to be as nice because they were tall and thus supposedly better and newer, and the costs of building a super ornate facade and a tall tower was too much for most developers.

Scrapers are Impressive from afar but imposing and not human scaled. Many people hate them and for good reason. If u look at NYC at the turn of the 20th century it's hard to argue that the canyons of today are better.


The attitude of accepting every tower as positive because it hits 1000 feet is a joke. Height isn't that important for most when we are walking on the street. For most an amazing street facade would top height or adding to the super tall count.
