and...going down!!



The Bancroft Building Is Really Coming Down Right This Second
http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2015/0...his_second.php

Quote:
It's been a long road to demolition for the historic Bancroft Building. The 19th-century office building with distinctive red-and-white detailing on East 29th Street lost its preservation battle, and it's currently being razed very slowly. Work started on the inside during the summer of 2014, and a video uploaded earlier this month shows that it's finally the facade's turn to go. Then a tipster sent in photos of the building shot yesterday, so it's official: chunks of the building's front are gone. History buffs may go ahead and weep—because HFZ Capital is very likely to erect something tall and glassy there.

This project will rise right behind these stunning buildings.


It will block the view of the Eventi from the east, which is a good thing!

While Bankroft 's loss is sad, I will welcome the destruction of the brown POS which is just west of the beautiful building on the corner.

If I move here, I can purchase all of the Judaica kit that I need! I personally like Mensch Bench.





The Mitzvah Tank was out!



The Mosiach is coming!

The loss of Bancroft is sad, but I am eager for this PoS to come down on the 30th St side.

Hopefully something worthy rises amidst these landmarks.


Something also is planned for this little building, 264 5th, on the southwest corner of 29th.
(The little building with the arched black windows is not part of the parcel.)

Ziel Feldman and His Construction Binge Starts With a Pair of High Line Projects
http://commercialobserver.com/2015/0...line-projects/



Quote:
HFZ is developing the site known as the former Bancroft Building at 3 West 29th Street, as well as 11 West 29th Street and 8-16 West 30th Street. Is it just the three sites?

There are a couple of more buildings to the west of it on 29th [Street] and it backs into some buildings. I don’t have the addresses but several buildings back to back along 30th Street also. It’s probably six buildings. The square footage is approaching half a million.

What’s the plan?
That’s a co-venture with [the] Collegiate [Churches of New York]. It’s also in the formative stages. They were looking to develop the plot [next to the church]. The church spent several years meeting with the largest developers in the city and we in the end were selected. We are all in the planning process now but it will be one site. We’re thinking potentially a hotel component, an office component for the church and then residential.

Do you have an architect for that project?
We do. We hired Moshe Safdie.

That firm does decent work. also, this can be pretty tall at 500k sf since I doubt that there will be much retail on the side streets.

I vant to celebrate!

This week from the site of the Mystery Tower. (Something very tall will rise on this lot.) Anyway, the back of the brown POS on 30th St is visible.



Hopefully, Moshe Safdan designs something worthy of this elegant setting.
