This is what I was thinking. It makes sense to file a permit for the maximum as-of-right project, regardless of what you're actually going to build.

Can someone remind me whether we expect these to be rentals or condos? It seems like a weird area to try cashing in on the luxury condo boom (which is what I think a 1100 footer would suggest).

I agree about the area for a lux condo, but I think it's a real possibility he may go condo here. I remember reading an article a while ago, Silverstein championing for more affordable housing in this area and specifically for this project.

This area is changing and he may be banking this are will improve drastically because of the Hudson Yards and all the peripheral developments rising amd slated to rise around there.

Plus I read somewhere Bill DB is willing to build more platforms over the rail yards all around in the city to create more housing. It is my hope one day that they could eventually build platform over the Lincoln tunnel and Dywer avenue roadways especially between 9th and 10th avenues from 30th street all the way up above 42nd street to create more housing. This area imo, could be the next great big development of land after the Hudson Yards in Manhattan.

Slightly off topic, but why is this called 'affordable housing' when it's mostly only affordable to the top 1%?

I love that idea, I just wonder if the trench is deep enough to build over the top of. In any case, I expect someone to try. Along with the cantilever and elevated walkway trends, these platforms are the likeliest strategy for creating more buildable square footage in Manhattan.

Well, and more landfill, I guess. But I think the hurricane issue is going to deter anyone from seriously considering that.

Sorry I'm on a bumpyyy bus ride. Lol. I'll give it a try.

They have income requirements for families. Just as an example, lets say a family makes less than $42k per year can qualify for affordable units set aside by developer.

In this case for new development b4 Bill D B the ratio a developer must make was 80% market and 20% affordable of the total project. By meeting that requirement the developer can avail such incentives such as tax breaks, credits etc as result of creating affordable housing.

This way people living in the city will not only be for population with high income bracket and it's a way to have diversity amongst the population. Lol.

Hudson River ferry service launching
http://www.amny.com/transit/hudson-r...hing-1.8012387

Quote:
A new ferry service for Manhattanites will set sail on Monday, bringing riders along the Hudson River.

New York Water Taxi is launching a north-south service on mornings and evenings next week to run between Pier 84 in Hudson River Park at West 44th Street and Brookfield Place at Brookfield Place's World Financial Center.

The ferry will connect residents coming to Manhattan's Hudson Yards development on the far west side to theFinancial District. The ride -- which only run on weekdays -- will cost $4.50 one way and $8 round-trip, lasting about 15 minutes, a rep for New York Water Taxi said.

This needs to be moved to supertalls and the title needs to be changed to:
NEW YORK | 520 West 41st Street | 335m | 1100ft | Pro

I must say that the height upgrade is a pleasant surprise, not that the previous 2X 750ft towers were bad.

Vision: 514 Eleventh Avenue

Quote:
Silverstein’s development at 514 Eleventh Avenue has recently re-appeared in headlines as the tower may end up standing 1,100′ tall, becoming one of the tallest residential buildings in Manhattan. While the ‘supertall’ plans have not been revealed, renderings of the project on Oppenheim Architecture + Design‘s Architizer page depict another vision for the site, which would be truly iconic....Read more in link

Yes that is awesome. Even more so if there will be 2.

It's stunning as a vision, nothing really like it in this part of the world. Hopefully whatever Silverstein constructs there will at least have an interesting look, certainly the Manhattan West Side is a great place to build towers that stand out.

I would appreciate this better than a single supertall.

I always wondered how much Sq foot for development this tower has and as per curbedNY article today it says this has 1.6 msf. That is a nice size for a 1,100 supertall.

I think that Silverstein should work on finishing the WTC before taking on another huge project. None the less I love that design

Silverstein already succeeded with the nearby Silver Towers, developing residential towers while the market is hot is something they can't miss out on while the expensive WTC is taking too long to complete.

I don't think that something so grandiose will rise here. This site is adajecent to traffic-choked entries and exits to the Lincoln Tunnel.

I'd say 1100 feet is pretty grandiose, if that happens

I doubt that it will. Two 230m towers are more likely.

If it were further south in the HY, it would be a far more valuable site.

Maybe, Silverstein himself seems to want to build an 1100 footer though, at least that's what articles have been implying.

We shall see
