That's a placeholder design. They're still working on a design. I would expect something similar to the Silver Towers though.

Just looked at a map, didn't realize how close this one is to his twin rental towers. Interesting... it will definitely be a positive for the neighborhood.

Proposal For 25 Story Tower In The Cooper Square Renewal Area on Chyrstie St.



Quote:

The Cooper Square Urban Renewal Area (“CSURA”) – the eleven blocks of real estate between Bowery/Second Avenue/Stanton/East Fourth Street – has certainly faded from public attention in recent years. Or at least since the Avalon Bay motherships invaded both sides of East Houston Street back in 2005-2006. Much of the neighborhood attention remained focused on the undeveloped lots along Delancey. Times change.

Last summer, 9 and 11-17 Second Avenue (Mars Bar!) received their own “renewal” treatment – razed and soon to be replaced by another glass structure housing predominantly market rate housing (construction just reached street level). But there is another undeveloped CSURA parcel along Chrystie Street that is now on deck for mega-development. Next week, the Community Board 3 zoning committee will meet to discuss the fate of 215 Chrystie, and whether to approve the construction of a 25-story, as-of-right mixed-use project.

If developers get their way, the vacant 215 Chrystie Street, currently a parking lot-garden combo, might sprout the 195,000 square-foot tower in the coming years.

JLL joins hunt for Hudson Yards tenants

image hosted on flickr



Quote:
A top level team from Jones Lang LaSalle is set to join the hunt for West Side tenants after being tapped by Extell to lease its new 1.7 million square foot Hudson Yards tower.

Derek Trulson, Frank Doyle and Randy Abend will lead the effort to fill the new tower that Extell is calling One Hudson Yards. “There have been few things more exciting in my 25-year career in Manhattan real estate than being part of the emergence of a vibrant, new commercial district,” said Doyle. “We are pleased to represent Extell in leasing One Hudson Yards, which will be the first project delivered within the Hudson Yards district.”

Extell announced yesterday (Tuesday) that it would revive its plan to build the office tower that will occupy the eastern side of 11th Avenue, between 33rd and 34th Streets, facing a new four-acre park and sitting behind the entrance to the new Hudson Yards No. 7 subway station.

...

According to Gary Barnett, president of Extell, “If you looked at a map of the Hudson Yards district, our site is dead center, smack in the middle. “In addition to great architecture and a superb location, we’re also offering the most competitive rents in the Hudson Yards district.”

Derek Trulson, managing director with Jones Lang LaSalle, said, “One Hudson Yards will rise on the most strategically situated site in the up-and-coming Hudson Yards district. This state-of-the-art office tower will benefit from having direct access to the No. 7 line subway station, the beautiful new Hudson Boulevard Park and the main 34th Street corridor.” Trulson said the team has already begun targeting high profile, large scale tenants looking to establish a flagship presence in the new Class A tower.

The building was designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and will feature a pointed tower with a glass and metal curtain that will wrap the floor plates then peel away from the tower at the base, according to Extell. “The diagrid structure is revealed three-dimensionally as it reaches the ground with lobby entries and storefronts set between large diagonal steel members, dramatically juxtaposing the monumental scale of the tower with the finer textured pedestrian surfaces,” read a statement from the company.

The building will obtain LEED-certification and offer “leading-edge telecommunications and energy management systems,” high speed elevators and a state-of-the-art security system, according to Extell. A spokesman for Extell said construction would get underway once half of the tower had been pre-leased.
"Pointed tower"? I think this one's definitely a supertall!

Developers Announce New Apartment Projects


225 Rector refurbish and 316 Bergen St. Brooklyn

Quote:
Two New York developers, workhorse Related Cos. and newcomer Naftali Properties, this week unveiled plans to take advantage of the city’s tight condo market with in-demand new condos.

Related Cos. is redeveloping the 181-unit 225 Rector Place, a luxury condo by the designer Clodagh, in Battery Park City. And former Elad boss Miki Naftali has announced a deal to build an apartment building in Brooklyn, where a dearth of new apartments is pushing prices back to pre-recession highs. “316 Bergen Street will be one of the premier buildings in the neighborhood,” said Naftali, who left Elad last summer to start his own company.

New development supply has diminished throughout the city, particularly at the high-end of the market, according to most recent market reports. New developments in prime locations are being absorbed quickly, and, according to StreetEasy.com, the median listing in Manhattan has increased 12.6 percent since January 2011, to $1.42 million from $1.26 million.

Check Out a Bonkers Proposal for Gary Barnett’s 1,250-Foot Broadway Tower



Quote:
Blind item: Which architecture firm displayed a mind-boggling model for a skyscraper that may well never be built, at least in this lovely form, on the corner of Broadway and 57th Street for Gary Barnett? The model was on display last night inside one of the firm’s downtown projects, which is all The Observer can say lest we give the devilish designers away.

At Least One Huge Housing Development Is Still on Track: Hunters Point South Will Break Ground This Fall







Quote:
It may seem as though there has been limited tangible progress since Related Companies was tapped to develop the project in February of last year, but that is because most of the work is being done below the surface—with on the banks of the East River and the banks of housing finance.

Since last spring, HPD and the city’s Economic Development Corporation have been at work on building new infrastructure in Hunters Point South, which had been a Daily News printing plant until a few decades ago but otherwise little else. “There was nothing there,” an HPD official told The Observer.

According to the EDC’s construction report for May, sanitary sewers are 100 percent complete, storm sewers are 96 percent complete and water mains are 82 percent complete. Parks infrastructure is coming along, as well, with subsurface work more than halfway finished and features like a dog run, playground, concession building and waterfront walkways taking shape.

Furthermore, the department has pegged financing to be wrapped up this fall for the first phase of the project—project financing usually closes in May and June, but given the cost and complexity of this deal, more time is being set aside to get it done. After that, a groundbreaking is scheduled for October.

At full build out, Hunters Point South will have 5,000 apartments, 60 percent of which are to be affordable, with a particular focus on middle class housing. Related is developing the first phase with Phipps Houses and Manadnock Construction, a builder of affordable housing throughout the metro area. The two towers are being designed by SHoP Architects and KPF and will house 950 units.

151-161 MAIDEN LANE















In 2011, JFA was commissioned to design a mixed use tower in the financial district of Lower Manhattan. The developers desire to maximize the allowable buildable floor area meant creating a building which included residential, commercial and retail floor area. The property on which the proposed tower will sit is unusually narrow and will thus require special engineering considerations. JFA is presently working with and coordinating the efforts of world class engineering firms Langan Engineering and Thornton Tomasetti to create a viable and economically sound solution while maintaining a dramatic architectural vision. The project is presently in a concept stage of design. It is anticipated that the building will be constructed in 2014-2015.

Anyone know what is going up on 5th Avenue between 27th and 28th Streets (Just north of Madison Square Park)? No crane, so it can't be too tall.

Related Gets Loan For First Hudson Yards Residential Tower



Quote:
NEW YORK CITY-It has been a busy month for the real estate group at Manhattan-based law firm Morrison & Foerster. In the last four weeks, the firm has closed $1.6 billion worth of deals, including a New York 80/20 bond-backed multifamily construction loan, a mortgage loan for a Washington DC office portfolio and an unsecured line of credit for a major public homebuilder.

The firm represented Wells Fargo in the closing of a $188 million construction loan for the financing of an apartment complex under development by the Related Cos. and the Kalimian Family near the Hudson Yards development site. The 32-story tower will include 385 rental apartments, retail space and a parking garage situated at 30th Street and 10th Avenue.

The financing for the Far West Side tower consists of proceeds of bonds that are part of the New York State Housing Finance Agency’s 80/20 program. The bonds, which are enhanced with a letter of credit issued by Wells Fargo, are backed 50% by JPMorgan Chase. MoFo’s Mark Edelstein and John McCarthy led the transaction.

Avalon's "West Chelsea" gets Underway


An illustration of what Avalon's "West Chelsea" project may look like. (see article)


The site at 11th Ave and 28th St.

Quote:
On the NE corner of 28th Street and 11th Avenue, and along 28th east nearly to the High Line, work continues on what will be the future "Avalon West Chelsea". The building is to peak at 27 stories on the corner and taper back to 13 stories mid block. It is a large lot so the final product, though not particularly tall will contain an impressive 700 units and 25,000sf of retail for a total of 583,000sf. The building, designed by SLCE or Fogarty Finger (or both?) looks like an Avalon building- plenty or red brick, steel, and plenty of curtain glass facing west. It is much like Avalon Christie but with a tall tower and a little more glass. It is widely believed that SLCE is the architect, yet the rendering above is found on Fogarty Finger's website.
