Is Coney Island the next Times Square?



Quote:
In a cleanup similar to that of Times Square two decades ago, Coney Island is shedding its seedy amusements for new tourist-attracting retail brands, G-rated entertainment and dreams of huge residential and commercial developments. According to Crain’s, Coney Island’s Luna Park saw 640,000 visitors last year, a number that hadn’t been reached since the Steeplechase Park closed in 1964. The annual Mermaid Parade attracted 750,000 people last month.

Larger crowds are paving the way for new developments, and in turn, new developments are attracting bigger crowds every year. “The momentum is real,” Dick Zigun, the organizer of the Mermaid Parade, said. “Coney’s hit a critical mass.” Restaurants are on their way too: the Dumbo pizzeria Grimaldi’s opened a Coney Island location last month and the Prospect Heights diner Tom’s Restaurant recently signed an eight-year lease on the boardwalk.

In 2009 the Bloomberg administration rezoned Coney Island to allow more shops and residential buildings to open, and promised approximately $150 million in infrastructure upgrades in the area. The city also bought seven acres of prime Coney Island real estate from developer Joseph Sitt for nearly $100 million that it wants to use to revive the graying park.

Sitt wants to bring Las Vegas-style casinos to the area if the state legalizes gambling in the near future, but he is also considering massive residential towers and hotels, according to Crain’s. New York City Economic Development president Seth Pinsky has promised that the city would begin upgrades to the neighborhood to help accommodate new developments by the end of this year.

Approval Process Begins For Durst Fetner's West Side Pyramid

image hosted on flickr



Quote:
More than a year after unveiling plans for a pyramid-shaped building on West 57th Street near the West Side Highway, Durst Fetner Residential will begin carrying the plans through the land-use review process. According to the Wall Street Journal, the developer will start the seven-month effort, which includes votes by the City Planning Commission and City Council today.

When the renderings were first released in February 2011, the local community board expressed general support for the project and the Journal said Douglas Durst appears confident the plan will get approved. Excavation work on the site has already begun.

The building, which was designed by Danish architectural firm Bjarke Ingels Group to feature a sloped roof and blend the European block look with a traditional Manhattan high rise building, calls for 750 units. One-fifth of them are slated to be affordable. The Journal speculated that the community would call for more open space and below-market rate units to be included in the project.

Foundation Finally In At 388 Bridge St.



Quote:
After years of sitting stalled, there’s definitely progress being made at 388 Bridge Street, the 53-story residential tower planned for Downtown Brooklyn. As far as we could tell from our vantage point on the street, it looks like the foundation, or most of it at least, is in–a definite step forward from when we got an aerial view last month.

Restart in works for 80 South Street skyscraper



July 10, 2012

The site at 80 South Street could see some activity down the line. Curbed reported that there are now plans to construct a 300,000-square-foot, 780-foot mixed-use tower at this site, with a mix of hotel, residential and community space.

Cord Meyer Development owns the plot, and according to Curbed, is examining the property’s air rights to see if half of the proposal’s square footage can be dedicated for residential use. Morali Architects is behind the design, which will have some green elements, including hanging gardens flowing down the façade, which will be sheathed by photovoltaic glass.

The property is where Santiago Calatrava had planned his staggered cube tower in the days before the recession.

However, the plan has not yet started breaking ground — approvals are needed first from the City Planning Commission and the Department of Buildings. The approval pipeline could take as long as a year.

[...]
It's like Calatrava channeled through Gene Kaufman! *Blech*


Calatrava's original scheme for 80 South St.

Moynihan Station Renderings Unveiled

Quote:
Amtrak released renderings of the planned interior of its Moynihan Station expansion, the New York Observer reported. In yesterday’s updated vision for its Northeast corridor high-speed rail, Amtrak laid out its plan to expand the present terminals across Eighth Avenue into the Farley Post Office Building for a new station.

The new station will consolidate the train service’s operations and, by 2030, allow for travel from the city to Philadelphia in 37 minutes and to Washington, D.C. in 94 minutes, according to Transportation Nation.

However, that construction is still years off. As previously reported, after much delay, the first phase of the project is slated to get off the ground this year with the construction of new entrances to access the tracks that already exist under the post office, an underground walkway between Penn Station and Moynihan Station and new ventilation systems.

Four starchitect finalists selected for 425 Park Avenue redevelopment

July 11, 2012 12:00PM


From left: L&L Holdings Chairman David Levinson, Rem Koolhaas, Norman Foster, Zaha Hadid, Richard Rogers and 425 Park Avenue (credit: PropertyShark)

Four high-profile finalists will compete to design an office tower to rise at 425 Park Avenue. Norman Foster of Foster & Partners, Rem Koolhaas of OMA, Zaha Hadid of Zaha Hadid Architects and Richard Rogers of Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners have been selected to present their proposals to the developer, L&L Holdings, the New York Times reported. The finalists were chosen from 11 architects that L&L had reached out to in the spring.

“We wanted the broadest view,” Levinson, in an interview with the Times, said of the finalists. “It was important to select four architects that were very different.”

Levinson, along with an advisory committee — headed by Vishaan Chakrabarti of Columbia University’s Center for Urban Real Estate — will pore over the designs this summer. A final selection is slated to be made this fall.

As previously reported, L&L Holdings has to wait until 2015 to begin the tower’s redevelopment. This is when the building’s original land lease and office leases will expire.

According to the Times, not all of the original 425 Park structure will be razed. Zoning regulations permit Levinson to keep the 18-to-1 floor ratio if 25 percent of the original structure gets preserved.

Ground, Hearts Break at Sutton Place North as View Dims



Quote:
Sequels don't have to be the worst. A lot of people think the The Empire Strikes Back and The Godfather Part II were superior to their cinematic predecessors. But if you live in a 42-story glass curtain-walled tower with unobstructed views of the East River and points north, south, and east, a sequel building rising directly in front of you is going to get thumbs down reviews. That is the case these days over on Sutton Place North, aka York Avenue between 60th and 61st Streets, where ground has broken on Two Sutton Place North. Its footprint is situated diagonally in front of the extant One Sutton Place North, and will eventually stand between the original tower and views of the Queensboro Bridge, the Cornell Tech campus on Roosevelt Island, and the East River. The two buildings are expected to be the same height.

Stalled High-Profile Condo Projects Begin Comeback Trail



Quote:
The city hasn’t exactly reverted to the go-go days of the boom, but as The Real Deal reported in its July issue developers are revisiting planned condominium projects and completing them — not as rentals, for a change — to meet the growing demand. In 2007, 511 condo projects were planned for Manhattan and Brooklyn. In 2012, 255 such developments are in the works and the New York Times provided updates on some of the most closely watched ones.

Starwood Capital’s Baccarat Hotel, for example, which will have 114 hotel rooms and 64 condos across 45 stories is under construction at 20 West 53rd Street. At 56 Leonard Street, where Alexico laid the foundation for a planned 57-story Herzog & de Meuron tower, Hines has come on board and led a big push to secure financing. Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group will open the project’s sales office by year’s end. Sales also began this month at RFR Holding’s 20-story condo conversion of an apartment building at 530 Park Avenue.

At One Madison Park, which has a history of trouble almost as lengthy as the 50-story building itself, Related Companies is renovating the lobby, completing construction and will likely bring the units to market this fall. Lastly, the Zeckendorfs’ 18 Gramercy Park is slated to hit the market in September.

In the next year and a half, five more high-profile projects should begin sales. They include 388 Bridge Street, the tallest building in Brooklyn, 432 Park Avenue, the city’s tallest residential tower, the Carlton House at 680 Madison Avenue, the 78-story Jean Nouvel-designed Tower Verre, at 53 West 53rd Street, and 737 Park Avenue.

Crystal Palace! Here Comes Christian de Portamparc’s 400 Park Avenue South



Our pal Elevator View (one of the best photo tweeters/bloggers in town) shot us this photo of new construction fencing going up at 400 Park Avenue South, suggesting that Christian de Portzamparc’s long-delayed crystalline apartment building will finally rise there starting this year.

Almost a decade in the works, the project was left for dead in the doldrums of the recession until Toll Brothers and Sam Zell decided to team up this spring to take on the project. According to public records, building permits were approved between April and June, so the 42-story tower, with 363 units, is ready to rise. Neither of the developers were immediately reachable.
