Manhattan:

250 South Street: Extell has filed a slew of new building applications focusing on foundational and structural plans in conjunction with a 68-story residential tower at 250 South Street, in the Lower East Side. With demolition complete, and test-piling starting, excavation appears imminent.

Checking YIMBY it appears the tower has been upped to 72 stories, 847 ft. It's under today's "YIMBY Today" profiles. Definitely like that!

Awesome! Nice Height increase. Slowly, the skyline between the Empire State Building and the World Trade Center is getting taller!

950 ft | 101 TriBeca St.
926 ft | 30 Park Place
876 ft | Beekman Tower by Ghery
847 ft | 227 Cherry St.
825 ft | 15 East 30th
821 ft | 56 Leonard St.
777 ft | 45 East 22nd St.

Those would be kings of skyscrapers in many cities in the world.

Not sure if this was posted before but we now have an idea of what the massing of the tower will look like.

to say the least lol. I'm curious how creative the architect will get here; in fact I'm still wondering who the architect is.

According to a curbed article, Dattner Architects is designing the affordable component and Adamson Associates tapped to design the tower.

I'm a little puzzled by that cause they really never design buildings themselves.
If you look at their website, all their work is designed by other architects. Maybe they're working on the behalf of someone unless they are venturing into designing their own buildings.

I agree, Adamson certainly would be serving as the executive architect as that is their specialty. The actual firm that's designing this tower has not been revealed yet afaik.

Extell’s 68-Story ‘Tetris Tower’ Will Have Private Bowling Alley, Swimming Pools, and Basketball Court

http://www.boweryboogie.com/2014/10/...ketball-court/
Quote:
There are no good vibrations or anything giving excitations down at 250 South Street. At least not for the next few years.

But there is this …

Some new details just came down the pike regarding the 68-story Extell phallus rising onsite. While plans for the so-called “Tetris Tower” still carry “disapproved” status by the Department of Buildings, zoning documents on file give us a better idea of what to expect.

We already know that the 800-foot building will house 790 luxury apartments and roughly 29,000 square-feet of commercial retail space for a store. However, it’s definitely worth pointing out the tenant amenities available in this juggernaut, especially given the “poor door” property for low-income families adjacent.

Only residents will have access to the swimming pools and bowling alley
Let’s start with the cellar:

1,874 square-foot lap pool (plus accessory kiddie pool)
Basketball court
Bowling Alley
Male and female locker rooms
Squash court
Golf simulator
Turkish bath (“hammam”)
Crazy shit. There’s more…

An open-air lap pool will also grace the fifth floor, “the top level of the base on which the residential tower sits.”

By the way, zero community facility space.

Meanwhile, the rhythmic, migraine-inducing pounding of pile drivers has begun, but according to Lend Lease, should only last two weeks. The project manager promises that they’ll “take every measure to ensure that work will be performed safely,” and ensure that there are “minimal disruptions.” Right. Tell that to the neighbors – particularly those in the adjacent Two Bridges Tower – who will deal with vibrating homes.

Moving along nicely ... should be U/C soon.

Groundwork continues on Extell Development’s 847-foot-tall mega-rental complex at the foot of the Manhattan Bridge. Rumored to be called One Manhattan Square, the project at 250 South Street will bring a staggering 790 luxury rentals and 205 affordable units to a remote section of the Two Bridges/Chinatown neighborhood. The project rises on the former site of a cherished one-story Pathmark supermarket and its sprawling parking lot.

Seems like a very slim tower for such a big plot.

There will be a 2nd separate building built on that plot. It will be the affordable housing component of the entire development.

Ah, I didn't know that. I didn't notice the grey blob on the latest massing, either, which I assume is the affordable building.

Just seemed odd, since in many other places they build those awful cantilevers because their plots are too small.

Neighbors Meet With Extell Development About Noise at Cherry Street Site

By Ed Litvak
February 26, 2015

Quote:
Last night, residents in the Two Bridges area were granted an opportunity to quiz executives of Extell Development and Lend Lease, its contractor, about the massive project now under construction at the former Pathmark site on Cherry Street.

Extell is putting up a 72-story luxury residential tower and a 15-story affordable building where the supermarket once stood. The meeting was orchestrated by the tenant association at Two Bridges Tower, the neighboring property, and Community Board 3.

Although several people showed up to ask questions about the huge scale of the project and the tax breaks Extell is receiving, they were quickly shut down. Organizers said the meeting was intended only to address concerns about early morning noise, safety issues and other construction-related matters.

Residents said the pile driving operation at the site is creating an unbearable amount of noise and disruption. Sometimes their apartments are shaking so forcefully that people think they’re living through an earthquake. Several residents of Two Bridges Tower have reported cracks in their walls.

According to Lend Lease, the loudest work for the building foundation will last another 10 months or so. They expect to begin building the superstructure very late this year or early in 2016. On weekdays, workers are on the job 7 a.m.-6 p.m. Construction starts at 9 a.m. on Saturdays. Residents, some speaking in Chinese, pleaded for a later start time, but the executives said that would just prolong the project. They assured the locals, however, that safety precautions had been taken, including the installation of vibration monitors.

Trever Holland, tenant president at Two Bridges Tower, asked about renderings of the luxury tower. Months after construction began, on-site signage meant to inform the local community about the project is noticeably bare. City law compels developers to post a rendering along with building permits. The executives said they would eventually release drawings, but added that they were not yet ready for public consumption.




This will be U/C pretty soon!
