NEW YORK | 821 First Avenue | +200m | +656ft | 35 fl | Pro

Turkish Consulate’s New Tower Across UN Finally Moves Ahead, Offices and Apartments Planned









Quote:
After more than three years on the drawing board, the replacement tower for Turkey’s Consulate General and Permanent Mission to the United States at 821 First Avenue is finally moving forward. First announced in 2012, the proposed project, known as the Turkevi Center, has commissioned Perkins Eastman as the architects of record. The building will house new offices for the consulate, and diplomatic residences for permanent staff and visitors above.

Architecture firm Chelsea Atelier prepared a conceptual competition design for the project that envisioned a dynamic green-glass tower that complemented the iconic United Nations Secretariat Building across First Avenue. It swooping curves and a crown of geometric filigree evoke Islamic themes and Turkish art and culture. The tower programmed the 17 lower levels for consulate offices and a restaurant, while the upper stories contain residential apartments topped my several tiers of terraces.

Cityfeet reported in 2012 that client-advocacy firm Cresa is serving as the development’s project manager, and recent documents filed by the consulate show the firm remains onboard. The project’s lack of progress is unclear and according to Turkey’s BGN News, rent paid for temporary offices at nearby 825 Third Avenue are costing the country’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs approximately $5 million a year.

Demolition of the site’s two structures: an 11-story office building designed by Harrison & Abramovitz formerly known as the IBM World Trade Corporation Building, and a four-story townhouse, are slated to begin this summer. In relation to the abatement and demolition of the now vacant buildings, an RFP was issued this past summer in search for hazardous materials consultants. Another RFP was issued this past June to purchase 24,132 square feet of inclusionary housing certificates to potentially increase the size of the project. A preliminary schedule reveals the consulate hopes to complete demolition by next spring and begin construction in July of next year. The development is tentatively scheduled for occupancy in late 2018.

The proposed building is directly across from Zeckedorf Development’s 50 United Nations Plaza which is now wrapping up construction. Also in the works is a 27-story mixed-use building located across 46th Street that is being developed by the United Arab Emirates.

Every building which concerns to harbor a garden greatly appeals to me. I like it.

A classic, beige limestone tower would definitely suit the location better. The crown also seems like a mere cheap version of Shanghai Tower.

Turkey Files Demolition Permits to Make Way for New Consulate Tower
https://www.dnainfo.com/new-york/201...onsulate-tower

Quote:
MIDTOWN EAST — The Republic of Turkey is moving forward with plans for a glassy First Avenue tower that will be the new home of the country’s New York consulate, records show.

Representatives of Turkey filed demolition permits on May 5 for 821 First Ave., at the corner of East 46th Street, and a townhouse next door at 342 E. 46th St. — both of which currently house various Turkish diplomatic offices.

The new 32-story tower will replace the plain, 11-story building that currently sits on at the corner of First Avenue and East 46th Street, as well as the five-story building next door, according to permits filed with the city.
...
Construction on the new tower is expected to wrap up by 2018, the spokesman said.

With the floors twice as high as on regular building, it really could end up over 200m.

This will definitely be one of the tallest buildings in the world with fewer than 40 floors.

what is interesting is that this tower would be the 9th or 10 tallest tower if they built it in Turkey.

Turkey's building a lot. By the time this thing is completed, Turkey might well have supertalls. It'd be closer to #20 than #9 or 10 imo.

Erdoğan takes first step to build new Turkish House in New York



President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan participated in the groundbreaking ceremony of the Turkish House, which is located in Manhattan, right across from the United Nations Headquarters, as part of his visit to the U.S within the framework of the U..N General Assembly.

The old building, which had been long used by Turkey as a building for consular affairs and permanent representation, was pulled down to construct a new one. The new planned Turkish House is expected to be a 32-story building that symbolizes Turkey's growing power in the world.

President Erdoğan said ahead of his visit to the U.N. General Assembly, "The new 32-floor building will be worthy of Turkey's honor as it is in the downtown and constructed right across from the U.N. Headquarters."

The new Turkish House is expected to overshadow the U.N. building, the U.N. Plaza and the building of the U. S.'s U.N. permanent representation that is 171 meters high (561 feet). The new Turkish House is expected to be finished in 2021. It is planned to be a building that features Turkish culture, history and multiplicity with Turkish architecture motives. It will also be a green-friendly building with "LEED Silver" certificate.
