I walked by on 30 Nov. The glass is absolutely beautiful. It must be seen in person. Photos do not do it justice. This area has become a great mix of ultra-modern groundscrapers, coupled with historic structures.

You couldn't keep track of all the projects under construction just in Manhattan, let alone the other boroughs, if it were your actual job. I like to think that I'm pretty aware of what's being built in Manhattan, but I stumble on mystery projects pretty frequently, and none have threads or even get mentioned here. There's a ton of infill that's basically always U/C, but there's honestly just so much of it it's genuinely impossible to keep track of. The project below is a good example, in a lot of cities it'd be a major project, here, not so much.

Signs of Life at Stalled Upper East Side Condo The Charles
Friday, November 30, 2012, by Sara Polsky

"... our tipster elaborates. "Said the building would be done in a year and a half.' "



Because I'm bored and football isn't on for a bit, I'll post a couple links just to prove my point. But again, such an all encompassing list is impossible. I live in a largely historic neighborhood, and on the outskirts of the historic district there are 5 construction sites within 3 blocks of each. A condo, 3 hotels, and a office/hotel combo. None have threads. There is honestly a seemingly infinite amount of stuff like this, to say nothing of the developments that don't even get picked up by sites like Curbed.

Live close to this, and crews are definitely on site again.

Neighbor-Hated 150 Charles Street is Alive and Funded
Thursday, December 6, 2012, by Sara Polsky



"... Developer the Witkoff Group has gotten a $230 million loan, the Journal explains, and $140 million of that is going right into the work on 150 Charles. Construction has, in fact, already resumed, which means neighbors will be looking at the thing they most feared in about a year and a half. The 91 condo units will be priced around standard area prices, which are currently about $1,683/square foot..."

Good rendering of 200 East 79th Street. Apparently all but one units are sold.

New Renderings For Tower Verre Revealed

Quote:
The most recent redesign of Towe Verre, Jean Nouvel's MoMA tower, calls for a shorter building than originally planned, at 1,050 feet and 78 stories. The architectural drawings for the redesigned tower came to light in August; now, New York YIMBY spots some fresh renderings on the website of architects Adamson Associates. The archibabble explains: "The design features a faceted exterior that tapers to a set of three distinct asymmetrical crystalline peaks at the apex of the tower – each peak varying in height and shape." Inside, there will be 100 hotel rooms, 480,000 square feet of residential space, and 52,000 square feet of MoMA expansion.

Zeckendorf Unveils 50 UN Plaza Plans

Quote:
Yesterday Arthur and William Lie Zeckendorf, along with Global Partners, unveiled their next project, 50 United Nations Plaza, and also made a pledge of $100,000 to Friends of Dag Hammarskjold Plaza (a nonprofit that preserves the plaza where their building is situated).

The new development will offer East River, Chrysler Building and UN Secretariat Building views from deep bay windows. (The Zeckendorfs’ grandfather, Trygve Lie, was the first UN Secretary-General, so we imagine the area holds special meaning for them.)

And rather than limestone or brick, this time the architect is going to use polished stainless-steel detailing on the facade, in the spirit of the great NYC skyscraper.

U.N. RAL: This 44-story, 87-unit condo building at 50 UN Plaza should be finished by 2014. It will have a 10,000-square-foot penthouse with its own infinity lap pool.Plantings are planned all around the tower, which will also feature a spa and a pool.
