Children's Museum Rising Uptown Receives Major Grant



Quote:
An under-construction, $80.5 million development on West 155th Street that’s slated to become a children’s museum, an affordable-housing residence and a preschool education center, has won a $350,000 arts grant to help fund the museum’s exhibits, the New York Daily News reported. The museum, named the Sugar Hill Children’s Museum of Arts & Storytelling, could attract other major donors thanks to the grant from ArtPlace, a coalition of arts groups and foundations.

Development could claim graffiti-covered 5 Pointz building by next fall



Quote:
If property owner David Wolkoff’s plans for redeveloping the Long Island City outdoor graffiti gallery 5 Pointz into a 980,000-square-foot residential project are approved, then the building, which is covered in spray paint murals created by artists from around the world, could be demolished by September 2013, the Sunnyside Post reported. Wolkoff said he hopes to get his plans certified by the Department of City Planning this fall. As previously reported, Wolkoff has been mulling plans for erecting two residential towers on the site for years, but he wanted to wait for the economy to improve. The plan currently includes towers of 47 and 41 stories with 1,000 rental units between them, 25,000-30,000 square feet of retail space and display space for graffiti artists. According to Curbed, the plan does not include affordable housing. The rents will go for market rate, which is around $30 per square foot, the Sunnyside Post said.

If City Planning approves his plan, which calls for over five times the amount of permissible development in the site, it would then undergo the uniform land use procedure, which is a seven-month process.

Dekalb Market gets boot, paving way for CityPoint construction



Quote:
Businesses in Downtown Brooklyn’s increasingly popular Dekalb Market were informed it’s time for them to start looking for a new location, Eater reported, meaning construction is coming closer to starting on the long-stalled CityPoint development. The market, comprised of shops and restaurants operating out of old shipping containers off Flatbush Avenue, will be forced to move out by October, at which point developers Acadia Realty Trust and Washington Square Partners are set to begin construction on a retail structure.

When the market first opened last year, the operators were under the impression they’d have the space for five years, according to Eater. Construction on CityPoint, which is set to include 675,000 square feet of retail and commercial space and 690 housing units, was pushed forward last month when Century 21 agreed to be the complex’s anchor tenant.

As previously reported, the project had been planned before the recession and was nearly abandoned before a $20 million federal stimulus allowed development to begin on a small, 50,000-square-foot portion of the complex. There was also controversy surrounding the project when Aaron Malinsky, whose PA Development was initially part of the development team, was indicted in the Carl Kruger bribery scandal and dumped from the project. The charges were eventually dropped.

While Dekalb Market said it has already begun search for its new space, its imminent removal from Flatbush and Dekalb avenues is another sign that CityPoint, which is slated to include Brooklyn’s tallest tower, is moving forward.

This is about to rise on B'Way and 77th.

Another Pricey Rental Rises on the Upper West Side

By C. J. HUGHES

Published: June 29, 2012

TWO years ago, the opening of the Corner and the Aire proved there was a healthy appetite for spare-few-expenses rentals on the Upper West Side.

Now a new project is trying to replicate their successes. Developed by Friedland Properties and Rose Associates, a 20-story rental building is going up at Broadway and 77th Street. The building is now known as the Larstrand, though developers say that is just a working title.

What is settled is that the high-rise will have 181 units, from 480-square-foot studios to 1,700-square-foot three-bedrooms, said Robert A. Scaglion, a senior managing director of Rose Associates.

The $135 million project, which kicked off last summer, is not expected to be complete until the end of 2013, but developers have already chosen many finishes. Kitchens will have quartz counters, Bosch appliances and Bertazzoni ovens. Bathrooms will have Italian tile walls and floors, Kohler tubs, and under-floor radiant heat. Bath mirrors will be defoggable with the flick of a switch; a portion of mirror surface will have a television built in.

Rents for the three-bedrooms, which will be on the corners with views of Broadway, are expected to be $90 a square foot, Mr. Scaglion said, and one-bedrooms, which will average 700 square feet, could cost around $80 a square foot. That comes out to around $13,000 and $4,750 per month, respectively. (Twenty percent of the units will be offered below market rents for qualifying tenants.)

The average rent in May for a one-bedroom on the Upper West Side was $3,471 a month, or about $60 a square foot, according to MNS, a real estate brokerage.

To help justify these prices, and to compete with other buildings, the Larstrand developers are putting extra effort into the common areas. The 4,800-square-foot roof deck, for instance, will have an outdoor movie theater, which is something the Corner did not offer, Mr. Scaglion said. The theater could be the scene of movie-night parties, he added.

“The evolution of the high-end luxury building is that residents are now requiring special programming in these kinds of spaces,” said Mr. Scaglion, who also marketed and leased the Aire, at 200 West 67th Street. in addition, Rose handled the marketing for the Corner, at 200 West 72nd Street.

The L-shaped Larstrand site takes up the entire eastern side of Broadway between 77th and 78th Streets (the residential address is 227 West 77th Street). It will have 40,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, as well as two lower levels. Also on the site are two other buildings, which will be preserved and renovated. So far, CVS has leased a 9,800-square-foot store, a company spokesman said. The two-story buildings that used to line the block were home to a diner, a pizza place and a taekwondo school, as well as the popular Asian restaurant Ruby Foo’s, which closed its location there in 2009.

For Friedland, which did not respond to a request for an interview, No. 227 continues a recent push into residential development. The company, led by the brothers Lawrence and Melvin Friedland, owns more than 100 buildings on the East Coast, according to its Web site, including several in the area. But brokers said the firm had not built a major new one until the 22-story Melar went up at 250 West 93rd Street in 2007.

The Melar has 143 units, ranging in size from studios to three-bedrooms, though rents, at an average of $70 a square foot, are below what No. 227 plans to charge, Mr. Scaglion said, because the Melar is north of Broadway’s liveliest shopping district.

One factor working in the Larstrand’s favor is that it will come to market with little in the way of competition, since many development plans were deferred during the recession, said Andrew Barrocas, the chief executive of MNS. With limited inventory and strong demand, vacancy rates have fallen into the low single digits, so rental projects that open in the next two years are in a great position, he said. “I was blown away by what the rents ended up being for the Corner,” Mr. Barrocas said, “and I expect this building to do just as well.”

Qatar prime minister to buy $250M of One57 condos

July 02, 2012 08:30AM

"The prime minister of Qatar has negotiated deals to by about $250 million worth of apartments in Extell Development’s One57 tower, including a nearly $100 million penthouse, the New York Post reported. Sheik Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber al-Thani turned his attention to Gary Barnett’s building after his bid to buy Huguette Clark’s Fifth Avenue penthouse for $31.5 million was rejected by the co-op board.

The 10,923-square-foot penthouse was already reported to be in contract for a nine-figure price north of $90 million, but the buyer’s identity was unknown. Sheik Hamad is also in discussions with purchasing four separate full-floor condominium units in the building, at 157 West 57th Street, which could bring the total purchase price to $250 million..."

This site is actually quite tight, much denser than it appears in the rendering. The tower looks pretty nice though, better than a McSam special.

Forest City Ratner gets DOB approval for foundation work on AY residential complex



Quote:
Forest City Ratner has nabbed Department of Buildings approval to begin “minimal foundation work” for Atlantic Yards’ first residential building, according to the Atlantic Yards Report. Brownstoner reports that this work must happen before the Barclays Center makes its official debut this September.

The plan has not yet been fully approved by the city.

The building will be located at 461 Dean Street. It will be a 33-story, 349-unit apartment tower known as Building 2. Half of the units will go for market rate and the other half will be affordable.

The Wall Street Journal’s Robbie Whelan has said that the design for the the residential portion of the Atlantic Yards project makes “the most bland statement possible.”

Distinctive "Green" Glass Tower To Rise By Bryant Park

By Jill Urban



In recent years there have been a few new developments taking shape around Bryant Park in Midtown Manhattan. And now another one is in store for the park’s southwest corner, an ultra-modern boutique office building called 7 Bryant Park.

“7 Bryant Park will be a 28-story building, 470,000-square-feet. It’s really aimed at boutique-scale users. Those users will take advantage of a new building right in the heart of Midtown in the transportation triangle,” says Tommy Craig, senior managing director at Hines Development. Located on the corner of 40th Street and Sixth Avenue, this steel and glass tower will offer tenants direct views of the park, the public library and other city landmarks.

The tower is being developed by Hines Development and its mission is to create a building that can offer small and modest-sized companies big business infrastructure. “We have column-free trading floors with a 65-foot span. We have high-density occupancy. We have ultimately high-density electrical and cooling loads and we really planned spaces in the core, in the equipment rooms,” Craig says.

The building will also incorporate the latest in environmentally friendly technology. The base level will offer a small retail component but it has not been determined what kind of tenant will occupy that space. The building’s unique hourglass look, designed by Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, was inspired by Bryant Park and the area around it.

“This building is designed for its place. It’s very distinctive. It’s a glass and steel building with a very distinctive element in the corner, two cones, one pointing up and one pointing down. That’s what you’ll remember. That’s what makes this building special in the city. Those conical incisions face Bryant Park and celebrate that location on Bryant Park,” says Henry Cob, partner at Pei Cobb & Partners.

The project just received the financing, which means construction will begin later this year. It should take about two years, so tenants should be able to move in by the end of 2014.

I like 7 Bryant a lot, as it's a very nice, little filler building, but EDF is better.

Arup create a pavilion with a difference

Arup's thoughtful structural engineering for a restaurant pavilion helped the architect meet conflicting client needs: providing both public and private space on the same tight site, directly atop several stories of densely packed subterranean spaces.

The lowest point of the structure brings the roof flush with the plaza, creating a public lawn. The twisting planes tilt the lawn away from 65th Street, reducing exposure to noise and traffic. The streamlined form gives no indication of the complex facilities beneath. In addition to three new below-ground movie theaters, the restaurant sits atop the campus' central utility plant.

Arup used 3D modeling to craft solutions suited to the complexity of the program. The layout for the geometry of the pavilion's steel superstructure follows the mathematical principles and main generating lines of a rectilinear hypar. As a result, straight steel members were able to be used for all floor beams. Thoughtful rationalization of the architectural form and use of steel for the primary structure simplified fabrication and enabled rapid construction. (The latter was particularly important due to Lincoln Center's need to remain open throughout design and construction.)

Arup's structural design thoughtfully addresses each programmatic element. Metal decking with concrete poured on top forms the warped floor structure. Columns at regular intervals transfer vertical loading into the existing building. An additional layer of transfer beams underneath the columns transfer vertical loading around the movie theaters and the central mechanical plant into existing footings. On one end, the lower tip of the hypar sockets into the existing waffle slab of the plaza, allowing the transfer of lateral loading into the existing shear diaphragm. On the opposing side, braced frames transfer horizontal loading into the ground.

Throughout the five-year design and construction period, the project team created and coordinated multiple document packages corresponding to the logistical challenges and sequencing of the work. The design team and contractors exchanged 3D models.
