The most new news surfaced about the new condo project with 15 CPW architect Robert A.M. Stern at 44 East 60th Street, which is now slated to house fewer apartments than previously reported and is going to be, unsurprisingly, very, very fancy.

Any idea why they're going with 44 vs. 45? I would think the address would be pretty clear, based on which side of the street it's on.

Officially they are going with 45 E. 60th. Just a mistake in the article, although no. 44 is correct as well. On the DOB application it also notes the address to be 43-45 East 60th street.

I forgot to put in this detail from that curbed article I posted above, so here is the quote..
http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2013/1..._park_west.php

Quote:
The amount the Zecks paid for air rights to build this 51-story tower was a reported record-breaking $600/square foot, but Arthur clarified that the amount is actually a much more sane (?!) $430.
It's like a 15 Central Park West, with the same architecture, same limestone, same windows. It's about 33 units, one per floor and duplex penthouses. It's a long process: one year for foundations, and then 24 months going up.
Oh, and the pricing? Some had guesstimated more than $8,000/square foot. Well: "'15' is getting $12,000 a foot. It's a similar product." Sheesh! Permits have been approved, so here we go.
Looks like this will be designed after 15 CPW, but taller! I like that Zeck is going Limestone here as well.

So there we have it as far as time frame.
1 year for foundations
2 years completion

What to expect from Stern??

When It Works in New York, Architects Take It on the Road

Quote:
Robert A. M. Stern, who was commissioned to design a whole neighborhood on an island in China, with eight towers that will look strikingly similar to his limestone monument to Old New York, 15 Central Park West.

“Why do they come to us? Because of 15 Central Park West,” Mr. Stern, 73, said earlier this month from his office on the West Side of Manhattan. The Chinese “don’t want to go home at night to their three-bedroom shelf on the 44th floor,” he added. “They want to live in a place. That’s what we do: we’re place-makers.”

That seems true of Mr. Stern’s most ambitious overseas project to date, a two-million-square-foot residential development in Xiamen, a coastal city in southeastern China.

Mr. Stern’s work on the Midtown tower is paying dividends in other ways. The Win Sing Development Company from Taiwan toured 15 Central Park West and soon afterward hired Stern Architects to design a smaller building in Taipei, Mr. Stern said.

The 30-Minute Interview
Arthur W. Zeckendorf


By VIVIAN MARINO
November 19, 2013

Q. What’s the status of your condo project at 44 East 60th Street, between Park and Madison?

A. We have our building permit, started the foundations in September. Probably about a year from now the foundation should be done.


It’s like a 15 Central Park West, with the same architecture, same limestone, same windows. It’s about 33 units, one per floor and duplex penthouses. It’s a long process: one year for foundations, and then 24 months going up.

Q. How much for those units?

A. “15” is getting $12,000 a foot. It’s a similar product. We think it’s a fantastic location; it will have great views of Central Park.

Q. Is it true that you paid $600 for the air rights at 44 East 60th Street?

A. I think we paid $430 a foot.

Q. There are many who are concerned about the abundance of luxury condos widening the gap between the haves and have-nots.

A. I don’t think you could ask for a tougher business, so if we’re going to spend our time building these buildings, it has to be worth our while. Unfortunately there’s the cost structure of land and the cost structure of construction, union, nonunion. I think there’s a lot of product being built that’s $2,000 a foot. A lot of them in Brooklyn and Queens.

Q. Would you ever consider developing more affordable buildings?

A. It’s just not our business model. It’s not what we do.

Q. What’s in the pipeline?

A. We don’t really have much in the pipeline. We have looked at every single site in Manhattan, but we haven’t found one that meets our criteria to be on a park.

Land has gotten extremely expensive.
Damn, only 33 untis for such a tall building. Crazy times.

Given the expectation of completed foundations in one year, I imagine they're still digging.

Don't think spires are really part of his style, but he's produced things as diverse as the Comcast Tower to 15 CPW so who knows what he could produce. I wouldn't consider it likely though.

New York's First $100 Million Apartment is Coming Soon
http://www.departures.com/articles/n...is-coming-soon

Quote:
the Zeckendorfs’ newest, “just-announced” residential tower will be designed by Robert A.M. Stern, on East 60th Street off Park Avenue—one block north of Extell’s second 57th Street structure. The limestone façade will hold 31 apartments, seven 8,800-square-foot duplexes and a 13,000-square-foot triplex with “one giant terrace looking north, east and south,” Arthur promises. “When it’s offered for sale, it will probably be the most expensive apartment in New York.” Next stop, $100 million!

Yea I think this Tower will be special. I'm curious to see which amongst his current projects will be tops.

He will have a jewel near the Trade Center Complex, A towering Central Park Tower (tops in offering views) and this which will be the shortest of all three but in excellent location. For this tower to stand out, I'm sure they will use top quality inside and out and offer the largest apartments here compared to the others.

Stern has a bit traditional style, but his towers look good.

I'm guessing we should see the design soon seeing as they're way into ground preperations
