Though sadly, NYC already lost a portion of its brick and limestone heritage (see this thread for instance), and it only seems to continue to demolish heritage buildings, even very valuable and big ones. It's a pity, really. They should protect ensembles and individual gems even better and start to build more brick and stone facades again. And possibly even reconstruct some lost landmarks, like the Newspaper Row, Singer Building or even the grand old Penn Station.

LOL!!..Was somehow interested by your thread when the first thing i read is this(about 432 Park): ("432 Park is)screwing up the whole skyline of Midtown Manhattan"
You are a bit disqualified to worry about our cultural heritage imo!
Also,I am aware about your obsession to rebuild what was lost in beautiful Berlin during WW2 but Midtown is not Mitte.

It's courteous to not bump old threads like this without real news. Thank you.

Surprisingly, this Real Deal article from back in October never got posted here:

Quote:
Kuafu principals split up
Chinese PE-backed firm made some of the biggest development site purchases this cycle

The principals at Kuafu Properties, the Chinese private equity-backed development firm that rapidly became one of Manhattan’s most aggressive property buyers, are going their separate ways, sources told The Real Deal.

Zengliang “Denis” Shan, the former architect who was the conduit to the Chinese capital that bankrolled the company’s $750 million-plus buying spree, is leaving Kuafu TRData LogoTINY to start his own venture. Shan’s new company will include the $300 million development site at the former Subway Inn assemblage across the street from Bloomingdale’s on the Upper East Side.

Kuafu bought the site at 143-161 East 60th Street last October for more than $1,000 per square foot, with plans to build a 1,240-foot supertall condo tower. As the high-end condo market has suffered from a glut of oversupply, however, the developer said earlier this year the plan is to sit on the project and wait for the next real estate cycle.

Shang Dai, who started his career in the U.S. as an attorney doing real estate deals in Flushing, will stay on to lead Kuafu, which will retain the remaining $456 million worth of development sites the company bought.

In a statement to TRD, representatives for Kuafu said the split was amicable and the plan ““all along was for Shang and Denis to work together to start a U.S. real estate firm, with Denis ultimately spinning off to form his own platform.”

“Kuafu had the good fortune to grow very quickly, especially in the past year,” the company added. “With Kuafu firmly established and having several projects underway, Denis is able to form a new entity, which will develop the 60th Street project. It is a project he finds very exciting and deserving of his undivided attention, for the foreseeable future.”

The two principals remain friends and their companies are “forces to be reckoned with in the New York real estate market” and plan to work together in the future, Kuafu said.

As the cash-flush firm jumped onto the scene in late 2013, it staffed its Times Square office with a team of employees poached from around the industry.

They include head of development Jeffrey Dvorett, formerly of Extell Development, chief investment officer Stephen Muller, formerly an investment banker at Greenwich Group International, and head of acquisitions Christopher Sameth, formerly a principal at Investcorp.

It’s not clear which executives will break off with Shan.

Kuafu’s development pipeline includes the condo-conversion of the top 13 floors of 1 MiMA Tower at 460 West 42nd Street, which has a planned sellout of $414 million, as well as an assemblage at 86th Street and Lexington Avenue that the developer acquired in partnership with Ceruzzi Properties and Stillman Development for $134 million.

The partners filed plans to build an 18-story, 63-unit condo building at 147 East 86th Street, with pricing around $3,000 per square foot.

Kuafu also retains the stalled Hudson Rise hotel-condo development site in Hudson Yards, which has been plagued by infighting with its partners at Siras Development.

One of the few non-boxy modern skyscrapers that NY is getting. A refreshing respite from the endless corporate and residential boxy supertalls that is standard practice for midtown.

Out of the 10+ supertalls going up in New York, most of them are not boxy with a few exceptions like Central Park Tower and 3 World Trade. Tower Verre, 45 Broad Street, 111 57th, 30 Hudson Yards, 9 DeKalb, etc. are not boxy.

This design is better than most of the new towers going up.
