I passed this Gwathmey Siegel (apparently his last before his death) project on Central Park South and 24th Street:

It is a 10-story condo building, and is now one story above street level. I couldn't snap any photos because I was on the bus.

More filler.

Permit Filed for Crane Collapse Building's 28-Story Neighbor
Tuesday, September 4, 2012, by Sara Polsky



"A tipster living on the corner of 51st Street and Second Avenue reported last year that demolition was underway for 301 East 50th Street, a lot adjacent to the site of a crane collapse that killed seven in March 2008. Since then, a few more details have emerged about the lot's future: namely, that developer Fishman Holdings had picked up the lot and planned a Cook + Fox-designed condo building there. Now, a tipster points out that a permit has been filed for the new building at the site. Signs of life at last!

The permit calls for a 28-story building with 54 residential units. That works out to 111,429 square feet of residential space and 6,200 square feet of commercial space. Last we heard, construction was supposed to start late this year. Anyone seen renderings? Please share!"

NIMBY Alert:

South Street Seaport community fears new tower


NY Times

Quote:
Though the city’s Economic Development Corp. approved Howard Hughes Corp.’ overhaul of the South Street Seaport retail complex, the local community was quick to tell Downtown Express that it’s far from a done deal. The project still has to undergo the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure, which usually endures for seven months, and there are still significant concerns, according to Michael Levine who directs Land Use and Planning for local Community Board 1.

The ULURP board will raise questions as to what the community would get in exchange for approving the complex, work to ensure there is enough open space and demand assurances that Howard Hughes has the financial wherewithal to complete the project. But it’s main concern is a master plan for the South Street Seaport area, which Howard Hughes has declined to provide.

“I think their master plan, which they don’t want to talk about right now, is probably going to include a tower on the site of the Tin Building and the New Market Building, which our community, of course, is going to be opposed to,” said John Fratta, who heads CB1′s Seaport Committee.

While Howard Hughes does not currently own the buildings, it has an agreement with the EDC to gain control of the properties, according to Fratta, who said the community supports an alternate proposal to expand the New Amsterdam Market into a permenant feature of the existing structures.

On the south side of the street, another hotel is well under construction. There was a frenzy of activity on the foundation when I walked by. The address is 312 W 37th Street and believe completed tower will be around 20-stories.

A few renderings (source):

Proposed: New Hotel at 11 East 31st Street



Quote:
11 East 31st Street has sat vacant for several years, after the Simon Development Group (SDG) originally purchased the lots in the 2000s. The project was put on hold for several years, but construction is finally slated to begin in 2013.

The empty lot is the future home of a 33-story hotel, which will have 260 rooms. The specific name of the hotel is still undisclosed, although SDG has brought in Thompson Hotels as a partner on the project.

Durst won’t try for LEED certification at West Side pyramid condos



Quote:
Updated at 4:07 p.m.: The Durst Organization will not seek LEED certification for its pyramid-shaped condominium project on West 57th Street — opting instead to use its own criteria to assess the environmental impact of the building.

The decision, from a developer known for its embrace of “green” building practices, could alter the way other builders evaluate the sustainability of their developments, the Wall Street Journal reported.

215 Pearl: Downtown's Newest Dual-Marriott in the Works



Quote:
Permits have been filed with the Department of Buildings for another new hotel in Lower Manhattan. 215 Pearl Street will have 39 stories and 320 hotel rooms, although the permits are pending due to the review process.

The building will be occupied by two Marriott hotels, a Residence Inn and a Courtyard. The Residence Inn will take up the building's upper floors and have 120 rooms, while the Courtyard will be on the bottom floors and have 200 rooms.

The architect of record, Nobutaka Ashihara, actually designed another dual-Marriott hotel that's currently rising in the city as well--1715 Broadway.

It's awesome!

Windows could be a little bit bigger, but I love this ascetic design.
