NEW YORK | 45 Park Place | 203m | 667ft | 43 fl | U/C

Soho Properties Filing Plans for Condo at 45 Park Place
http://commercialobserver.com/2014/0...45-park-place/



Quote:
Soho Properties today is filing plans with the city to erect a condominium at 45 Park Place, next to the developer’s planned three-story museum devoted to Islam.

Designed by architect Michel Abboud of SOMA Architects, with Ismael Leyva Architects, the as-of-right glass and steel tower will rise 619 feet. Construction is slated to begin this year and the building will be completed in 2017, according to a press release from the developer.

“We are thrilled to contribute to the continued renaissance of Lower Manhattan and the new downtown skyline,” said Sharif El-Gamal, the chairman and CEO of Soho Properties, in a prepared statement. “We look forward to sharing our unique vision for an exquisite residential condominium property.”

Architect Jean Nouvel was tapped to design the neighboring museum “dedicated to exploring the faith of Islam and its arts and culture,” The New York Times previously reported, and public space.

No other details were provided by a spokesperson for the condo.

Park51 officially opened its doors as a cultural and community center at 45-51 Park Place in September 2011, a year after controversy ensued following announcement of plans for a 15-story Muslim institution two blocks from the World Trade Center, which Islamic radicals attacked on September 11, 2001.

Though the specifics of the design have yet to be released, the tower will consist of glass and steel...

Good to know the tower will consist of glass and steel, would never have guessed.

Yeah not really a surprise especially since many of Ismael Leyva projects are glass

I'm not very fond of wrecking that beautyful old building either.

The building is a bore. Tear it down, it's a dime-a-dozen in NYC.

Per Curbed:

Quote:
A first rendering has been revealed (h/t tipster) for the tower of condos that may rise next to the controversial museum "dedicated to exploring the faith of Islam and its arts and culture" that developer Sharif El-Gamal wants to bring to 51 Park Place.

The tower's plan exams were disapproved, but a tipster tells us that aspects of construction are moving forward. The tower is expected to be complete in 2017.

Looks taller than 597ft (btw it'd be great if a mod could change the height)

interesting massing. If the Islam museum/community center whatchamightcallit comes to fruition it would be interesting to see a tower with an Islamic architecture inspired design rising next door. I hope they do something like that.

Interesting indeed. I wanna see more renderings and a more detailed cladding but I like the massing, it's different, kinda like some of the new towers rising downtown.

This is a prime example of creative destruction.

Yeah, if anything you're more likely to see something with historical Jewish influences in direction reaction to what may eventually rise at Park51. The whole furor over that site is a bunch of xenophobic nonsense, and I would of course prefer 45 Park Place to rise without any kind of political baggage or agenda.

Fortunately, what we've seen in this early render is fresh and exciting; hopefully future articles will focus more on this interesting tower and less on its "controversial" neighbor.

Nice design! A good mix of boxyness with some subtle curves!
Good to see the use of a cantilever in the design, making a minimal impact on the ground area
I think we will be seeing these more and more, which also helps to preserve more of the older buildings in NY!

Update: A Soho Properties representative reached out to clarify that the rendering is outdated and does not accurately reflect what 45 Park Place will look like.
