NEW YORK | Halcyon - 305 E.51st St | 110m | 360ft | 32 fl | T/O




---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On the heels of a catastrophic 2008 crane collapse, 305 E.51st St has regrouped with developer HFZ Capital and resumed construction. Plans are for a 2015 opening.

HFZ’s Turtle Bay condos to be called "Halcyon NY"


curbed

Quote:
HFZ Capital Group’s condominium development in Turtle Bay, once the site of a deadly crane collapse, will be called Halcyon NY and will include a mix of one-bedrooms through four-bedrooms, priced at between $1.5 million and $5 million, Curbed reported.

The building is set to reach 32 stories, with a total of 123 condos, as The Real Deal reported. In 2008, the crane accident killed seven people and damaged nearby buildings, effectively forcing out the original developer. HFZ later took over the project, at 303 East 51st Street on the corner of Second Avenue.

Halcyon Hitting NYC Market This Fall



Quote:
Halcyon

The address best known for a massive 2008 crane collapse just hit the market as we entered September. Eventually, 123 units, with interiors designed by S. Russell Groves, will be available. The 32-story tower has a playroom, library, golf room gym with sauna, 50-foot heated pool, and "Aqua Spa," whatever that means.

Two Turtle Bay Towers Are Rising From Crane Collapse Site



Quote:
June 12, 2013

The 2008 crane collapse on East 51th Street killed seven people, destroyed a nearby brownstone, and caused other problems. But now two residential towers are rising from the rubble, the WSJ reports, with an aim to revitalize the damaged area and bring ultra-luxurious new apartments to a hungry corner of the market. Developed by the ubiquitous HFZ Capital, the 123-unit Halcyon will house one- to four-bedroom units ranging from about $1.3 to $10 million apiece. (Prices for the bigger apartments have spiked since we last wrote about the Halcyon.) New details have emerged about its amenities—beyond the standard concierge, kids' areas, and gym, there will be a 50-foot-long lap pool as well as a "golf room" and a communal terrace with a BBQ pit, according to the Journal. Rising to 32 stories, this glass-and-steel high-rise at 305 East 51st Street "will include two four-bedroom duplex penthouses with private terraces and three-bedroom duplexes with terraces on lower floors of the building." Interiors will be designed by the "immaculate" S. Russell Groves; sales are expected to begin in July with occupancy starting in 2015.

Halcyon Sales Begin


Construction has finally resumed.

Quote:
The 2008 crane collapse is a distant memory at the site of the under-construction Halcyon (a different building, under different ownership, than when that tragedy struck). The development at East 51st Street and Second Avenue is on the rise and will eventually house 32 stories with 123 luxury condos, which start at $1.3 million and will top out at more than $10 million. Reps at the Lipstick Building sales office opened their doors to us last week...

[...]

"Many" contracts have been signed already (the fire pit in the downstairs lounge is probably one selling point), and closings will start in late 2014, with occupancy expected for 2015.

The basement fits very well with the surounding buildings.

I agree for the outside. I like the interior though.

Zen and now: Halcyon days for Feldman at new luxury tower

Quote:
In an age of sky-high asking prices, apartments in Halcyon are almost a bargain.

But although HFZ Capital’s latest crown jewel in midtown offers living space for an average price of less than $2,000 per s/f, there is nothing cheap about the building. From its oak floors to its Hamam-style spa, the 32-story tower oozes luxury.

The tower, at 305 East 51st Street, features a total of 123 one-to-four bedroom luxury residences. Pricing ranges from $1.565 million to over $10 million, although the two penthouses haven’t hit the market yet. The building is marketed by Corcoran Sunshine Group.

Halcyon was designed by renowned interior architect S. Russell Groves, who was recently named to the AD100 roster by the Architectural Digest. “S. Russell Groves has crafted a vision of ‘casual glamour’ for the interiors which is carried throughout — from the lobby, to the residences, to the full suite of amenities on the 21st and 22nd floors. The building will also offer wonderful open views in all directions,” according to Tricia Hayes Cole, executive managing director of Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group.

Bronze touches and warm colors will dominate the apartments’ interiors, if the model apartment near the construction site is any indication. The staircase in the building’s spacious lobby will also be covered in bronze tones, with a chandelier resembling giant, connected paperclips hanging above. “The idea of the building is to create tranquility,” said Feldman. “We are trying to create a very Zen-like environment in the building.”

This ambition is perhaps most evident in the design for the common areas on the 21st and 22nd floors. An extensive spa boasts a sauna with changing lights — Feldman calls it light therapy.

A few doors down, residents will enjoy a bath modeled on a Hamam. Common in Turkey and Arab-speaking countries, Hamams contain heated stone benches and faucets for a very unique bathing experience. The 22nd floor will also feature a 52 ft. indoor swimming pool with floor-to-ceiling windows. The common floors will boast a library and a landscaped terrace, as well as a “sky lounge” with dining area.

Halcyon’s apparent success marks a stark turnaround for a site that had hardly ever made positive headlines before HFZ bought it.

Ditto. Great name. Boring building. Ugly podium.

Should this be considered "Topped Off"?
