TF Cornerstone Plans 45-Story Residential Tower On West 57th

April 3, 2013

Looks like Bjarke Ingels' pyramid will be getting some residential company on West 57th Street. The Observer reports that TF Cornerstone filed plans to build a 45-story tower at 606 West 57th Street between Eleventh and Twelfth Avenues—the same site that was once slated for a 700-unit rental development by AvalonBay Communities. TF's plans call for 1.2 million-square-feet of space, with 1,189 apartments, 20 percent of which would be affordable. The development would also have 42,000-square-feet of commercial space and a 550-spot underground parking garage.

The properties in question are still zoned for manufacturing, so the developer would have to go through the same rezoning process as Durst and Ingels experienced with W57. The lenghty process would ultimately lead to a vote by City Council

TF Cornerstone Looking to Build 45-Story Residential Tower on West 57th Street

Quote:
Back in 2011, AvalonBay abandoned plans to build a 44-story, 700-unit rental building on the block south of West 57th Street between Eleventh and Twelfth Avenues. TF Cornerstone was rumored to be interested in the site, and it turns out the rumors were true: the Manhattan-based developer now wants to build a 45-story, 1,189-unit residential tower on the same site, according to documents filed with the Department of City Planning.

If approved, the project would contain a total of 1.2 million square feet of floorspace, with 42,000 square feet set aside for commercial use and a 550-space underground parking garage. Of the apartments, 20 percent—238 units—would be set aside as affordable housing under the city’s inclusionary zoning program.

The project would, along with the residential pyramid that Bjarke Ingels is building for Durst Fetner on the north side of 57th Street, anchor the booming crosstown corridor, where half a dozen other luxury towers are in the works.

TF Cornerstone will have to go through the same private rezoning process for 606 West 57th as Dursts and Fetners had to do with the Bjarke Ingels building, involving a slurry of acronyms and eventually a vote in City Council. They’re seeking to rezone the parcels—which make up most, but not all of the block—from their old manufacturing designations to a zone that allows the highest residential density in the city.

Is this on the opposite side of the BIG pyramid plot? Adjacent to the Helena tower?

Interesting. Yea this is next to The Pyramid and the Mercedes house close by. This part of town like the high line area will have the most unique concentration of architecture in the city.

This is probably another case where the render looks bad but the final result will be great.

Thanks to the mod for fixing it.

11th Ave is really a dump, but there are a lot of new projects that are transforming it. The parallel stretch of 12th Ave is still really crappy, but this will change , as it has on more southerly stretches of 12th which went from utter crap to very fashionable.

TF Cornerstone's Colossal 606 West 57th Street Building, Revealed!



Quote:
The last visual we had of TF Cornerstone's huge development coming to 606 West 57th Street was a small little thing buried in a Wall Street Journal article. But now New York YIMBY unearthed the project's Environmental Impact Statement, which has many more looks at the massive property, which will have 1,189 units and be the city's largest residential building. Designed by Arquitectonica Architects, the Tetris-like building, as NY YIMBY says, proves "the cantilever craze is now at full throttle." In addition to the apartments, twenty percent of which will be affordable (thanks to semi-controversial tax abatements), there will be 42,000-square-feet of ground floor retail space, plus a 500-car garage.
