Here's a project I've never heard of: the Singapore Chancery on East 48th Street.

Apparently the Korean Cultural Center is set to start construction soon as well.

Looks like progress is (slowly) being made the Avalon Chelsea. Looks like a foundation slab has finally been poured in the western portion of the site.

Update on 345 Meatpacking, located at 14th Street and 9th Avenue. The brickwork is nice, but overall the building is pretty banal and the window layout is messy.

Romanoff Equities strikes deal with partner for Meatpacking District office, retail project
January 07, 2013 06:15PM
By Katherine Clarke



"Meatpacking District landlord Romanoff Equities is joining with Property Group Partners to bring to life a 120,000-square-foot mixed-use office and retail development on a vacant site at 860 Washington Street, Property Group Partners announced today.

The developer is set to break ground on the project in the third quarter of 2013, with completion slated for 2015.

...“[Romanoff Equities] has obtained essential approvals and permits allowing Property Group Partners to bring this project to reality,” said Jeffrey Sussman, president of Property Group Partners.

The 10-story property was designed by James Carpenter Design Associates and has floor plates of 11,000 to 13,400 square feet. The building, which is seeking LEED certification, will have retail space on two floors adjacent to the High Line park, according to its developers..."

I pulled together another montage. I'm sure I missed some projects, but I tried to be as comprehensive as possible. I also used a little creative freedom on projects such as 225 West 57th Street and the Grand Central Tower.

Holy mother of god... I think from that rendering it's fair to say that by 2020 NY will clearly be in a class of its own, and you've got some real talent sbarn. These are 2020 renderings are superb.

Toll Brothers Scores In $64 Million Midtown East Site Deal


Curbed

Quote:
It looks like luxury home builder Toll Brothers may have yet another New York City residential development project on the drawing board after scooping up a financially troubled and stalled development site – once dubbed the Oliver – from Alexico Group for $64 million, The Commercial Observer has learned.

Owner of the high-end boutique condominium building The Touraine in Lenox Hill, Toll Brothers purchased 953, 957, 959 and 961 First Avenue (or 953-961 First Avenue) in Midtown East after years of financial turmoil bogged down and eventually killed Alexico Group’s original plans to build a 161-unit luxury rental building at the site.


Toll Brothers’ The Touraine in Lenox Hill

In addition to The Touraine, Toll Brothers owns a Manhattan condominium at 160 East 22nd Street in Manhattan, and it has two other development projects up its sleeve – one at 400 Park Avenue South, which is under construction and slated to open in the fall of 2013, and the other is the Pierhouse at Brooklyn Bridge Park, situated along the Brooklyn waterfront and expected to open in the spring of 2014.

The plans for the new acquisition could not immediately be confirmed, as Toll Brothers did not return calls seeking comment, though the company builds luxury homes and condo developments throughout the United States, in addition to New York City and places further upstate.
161 units places this development at potentially 40 floors or more. We'll see what kind of "reception party" the neighbors have planned for them...

I am elated to see that this piece of junk is coming down. This stretch of Broadway has stunning old buildings, but for this eyesore, which will be razed soon.

Inside the record-setting, no-contract purchase of Soho’s 529 Broadway

One building, many suitors ends with a $150M sale

January 08, 2013 05:30PM
By Adam Pincus

Over the past several years, some of the city’s top retail investors had been eyeing a small, down-in-the-tooth property at the corner of Spring Street and Broadway in Soho. Among its suitors: Vornado Realty Trust, SL Green Realty, Invesco and Crown Acquisitions.

During the boom years, potential buyers first started offering about $85 million. That rose to $105 million and then to $110 million for the two-story property, Abe Goldstein, a member of the family that owned the building, and who managed the sale of the property, told The Real Deal. He did not sell at the time, sensing values were rising. “We really felt the building would go up in price,” said Goldstein, speaking by phone from China Monday, where he is on a business trip.

He was right.

On Dec. 20, a partnership of Jeff Sutton, Joe Sitt, Bobby Cayre and the Adjmi family closed on the purchase of the building that PropertyShark.com shows has about 43,888 square feet of development rights, for about $150 million, a per-buildable-square-foot record for Soho retail.

The new owners plan to demolish the existing structure and develop a two- to five-story glass-walled building, depending on a tenant’s needs, and pending approvals from the city....

Chelsea Market Begins Interior Work, Towers Coming in 2015



Quote:
Residents of Chelsea are still pissed off about the Chelsea Market expansion, but they don't have to fret over the building getting taller until 2015. For now, the only changes happening at the market are taking place inside, where space for eight new food vendors is being created in an area previously occupied by Amy's Bread. The vendors will be up and running by mid-February, but the Times reports that real estate experts are already predicting competition from the forthcoming Pier 57 mall and Hudson Yards.

And that, of course, has the neighbors already freaking out about the increased pedestrian and vehicular traffic the neighborhood will see. The office towers will be seven and eight stories tall, bringing 300,000-square-feet of space and thousands of new workers.
