City Opens $325 Million Hospital in Harlem



Quote:
The New York City Health and Hospitals Corp. heralded the opening on Thursday of the $325 million Harlem Hospital Center Mural Pavilion as "one of the largest major public hospital modernization projects in the city's history."

Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Health and Hospitals Corp. President Alan Aviles and Deputy Mayor for Health and Human Services Linda Gibbs were on hand at the ribbon cutting ceremony for the 195,000-square-foot facility, according to a news release. Also present was hip-hop artist Kasseem "Swizz Beatz" Dean, Health and Hospitals Corp.'s recently appointed "global ambassador."

The Mural Pavilion derives its name from the art commissioned by the Works Progress Administration during the Great Depression that hangs in the new space. The murals were the first major government commissions given to black artists.

The six-story structure houses facilities for outpatient visits, intensive care, women's imaging and bariatric procedures. The pavilion will also double the hospital's capacity to treat hemodialysis patients. The service will be outsourced to a private company, Atlantic Dialysis, as part of a broader effort by Health and Hospitals Corp. to cut costs.

This will probably also bring more tourists to SI.
Is that a plus for the island? How do the local residents think about that?

Nice to see this corner get redeveloped.

Eyeglass HQ Making Way for New LES Luxury High-Rise?
Monday, October 1, 2012, by Sara Polsky



"The fact that Moscot is moving from its headquarters at 118 Orchard Street (above) to 108 Orchard—the former Tenement Museum store—might not ordinarily raise any eyebrows. But Bowery Boogie's addendum to that news does. Moscot is moving, rumor has it, because 118 Orchard will be razed for a new luxury high-rise. (The building's been the company's headquarters since 1936.) The property sold last year for $4.8 million to an LLC that's part of Helm Equities, and zoning regulations allow for buildings up to 12 stories in this particular spot. That's all we know for now. Anyone got more details?"

1.1 million sf for residential is huge.

LES Pathmark may give way to large scale residential development
October 01, 2012 12:30PM



"With the 40,000-square-foot Pathmark supermarket location at 227 Cherry Street shutting down by year’s end, a Pathmark spokesperson told the Lo Down that A&P, the parent company, was “relinquishing the [long-term] lease to accommodate a large scale residential development and improvement project...'

...Curbed reported that the site could accomodate 1.1 million square feet. But at the same, Pathmark told the Lo Down that the store has reserved its right to operate on Cherry Street when the project reaches completion."

Second East Side Science Tower Breaks Ground


The Real deal

Quote:
A developer has broken ground on an East Side office tower stalled by the downturn thanks to a recent decision by Swiss pharmaceutical company Roche Holding AG to move a research unit from New Jersey to Manhattan.

Roche, a major manufacturer of cancer drugs such as Avastin, last month signed a deal with Alexandria Real Estate Equities Inc. to lease 60,000 square feet in the planned tower. Now Joel Marcus, Alexandria's chief executive, said last week the company is starting work on the roughly 400,000-square-foot building geared toward life-sciences jobs, with completion expected by the end of 2013. He said a biotech company—which he declined to identify—also has agreed to take a similar amount of space as Roche. "You need a catalyst and now we've got two," Mr. Marcus said.

The building is to be the second tower in the East River Science Park, a complex on city-owned land east of First Avenue, along 29th Street that city and state officials have sought to build up as a cluster of biotech and research companies.

Alexandria broke ground on an initial 310,000 square foot tower in 2007, intending to follow shortly after with a second tower. But it shelved plans for the subsequent building when the economy turned, although it built out the foundation for the tower and ordered materials.

Since then, the site has sat as a fallow concrete slab, which Alexandria subsequently turned into a temporary urban farm, where tomatoes and lettuce grew in crates between steel beams that stuck up from the foundation.

World's Tallest Ferris Wheel Coming To New York

http://www.forbes.com/sites/tanyamoh...g-to-new-york/

A plan to build a Ferris wheel that would exceed the height of the Singapore Flyer, currently the tallest in the world, as well as the London Eye and the planned ‘High Roller’ wheel on the Las Vegas Strip, was announced on Thursday by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.

The 625 foot New York Wheel, which would be the world’s tallest when completed, is part of a comprehensive plan that includes a new retail outlet complex and a 200-room hotel, all to be built on Staten Island’sNorthShore, steps from the Staten Island Ferry in St. George.

180 Sixth Avenue Plan Revealed At Last: A 14-Story Building
Tuesday, October 2, 2012, by Sara Polsky



"Eternal Curbed mystery 180 Sixth Avenue has decided to reveal its fate at last. A tipster spotted a brand new DOB filing for a new 14-story building at the spot, designed by BKSK Architects. (The lot changed hands last year for $17 million.) The permit calls for 24 residential units, with a building total of 61,471 square feet of residential space and 8,075 square feet of commercial space. Renderings, as always, welcomed."

14 stories isn't bad. That site is on the very edge of the Hudson Square district which is mostly 10 to maybe 16 story buildings, so it'll be a very visible building. Plus the low rise, historic area of Soho starts basically across the street to the east, so it'll be a visible building. Just nice to see it get developed, that's been vacant for as long as I can remember.

Anyways, more filler. Looks like it could actually be a pretty decent building.

Glassy 8-Story Condo Building Breaks Ground on 13th Street
Tuesday, October 2, 2012, by Jessica Dailey



"East Villagers, meet your soon-to-be neighbor. Developers broke ground today on a new 8-story luxury condo building at 211 East 13th Street between Second and Third Avenues. The 83-unit building will have studios to three-bedrooms, with sizes ranging from 500-square-feet to 1,880-square feet. A press release says units will have nine foot ceilings, and a third will have "substantial outdoor space." There will also be six "private rooftop cabana terraces," which we assume will be connected to penthouses. Shared building amenities include a library, fitness center, residents and business lounges, and a rooftop terrace with an outdoor kitchen.

The project is the product of a partnership between Ironstate Development Company, Abe and Scott Shnay (who are also building the Annabelle Selldorf-designed condos at 10 Bond Street), and Charles Blaichman, who was involved with Jay-Z's failed West Chelsea hotel. BKSK Architects designed the building. There will be 4,500-square-feet of retail space on the ground floor along 14th Street, and sales are expected to start next May. Marketing Directors, Inc. has been tapped as the exclusive sales team, but there's no word on pricing yet."

GroupM Considers Huge Lease to Anchor 3 WTC



Quote:
GroupM, the large advertising and media company, is in preliminary negotiations to anchor Three World Trade Center in a deal that would allow construction to begin on the planned 80-story office tower.

The potential lease, which is in early talks several sources said, appears to be the closest yet developer Silverstein Properties has come to realizing construction of the hulking 2.8 million-square-foot tower designed by the Pritzker-winning architect Richard Rodgers.

The lease would be about 550,000 square feet in size, several sources say, a large enough commitment to qualify the project for up to $600 million in public benefits in the form of a mix of equity and loan guarantees from the city, state and Port Authority. That agreement for public financial backing was struck in a 2010 deal between Silverstein and the Port Authority and requires Silverstein to contribute $300 million in equity into the tower, pre-lease at least 400,000 square feet of its space and repay the building’s government backers before extracting any profits.

Silverstein has already moved forward with Four World Trade Center, a roughly two million-square foot-office tower next door that also received a public backstop from the Port Authority as well as hundreds of thousands of square feet of leasing commitments from both the authority and the city – commitments that allowed the building to receive construction financing and proceed with construction.

Until now, Silverstein has had a few close calls with Three World Trade Center, attracting interest from a number of financial tenants, including UBS and Morgan Stanley, only to see interest wane as the financial sector was battered by increased regulations that led to downsizing.

Silverstein has built the concrete core and below-ground portions of Three World Trade Center, space that is needed as part of the 16-acre complex’s subterranean maze of pedestrian and retail corridors. Building systems for the Santiago Calatrava-designed PATH hub next door to the tower, as well as portions of that structure’s foundation, are also tied into the base of Three World Trade Center – a level of interconnectivity that ultimately allowed Silverstein to leverage public support for at least two of the three office towers it wants to build on the site.

GroupM is a subsidiary of the giant media and advertising conglomerate WPP and has been searching the office market for months for a large space in which to relocate. The company currently has operations at 498 Seventh Avenue and other locations in Midtown that it has wanted to consolidate into a single modern office facility.
Construction can ramp up quickly if the deal goes through. 550k is large but not enormous by NYC standards. This shows just how tough the leasing market has been for office developers. 5+ years ago, such a committment would have been a brief item in the back pages of the WSJ.

It's a 'core-plus' development so they can only use existing air rights under the present codes. If the developers had waited for the new Midtown upzoning to kick in, this could have been taller. But it's not unthinkable that a serious delay in this project could result in a newer, taller design...
