28-Story Hotel/Apartment Combo To Rise on Stalled Remy Site
Monday, January 14, 2013, by Jessica Dailey



"When it comes to stalled construction sites, the lot at 101 West 28th Street on the corner of Sixth Avenue is a bit of a legend. Once upon a time, it was going to be home to the Remy, a slender, cantilevered 32-story condo tower, but that project never quite got off the ground, and the lot sat in stalled site purgatory for so long that the DOB ordered the foundation to be filled in.

Near the end of 2011, the site went into foreclosure, and now, finally, it seems like property may be reborn. New York YIMBY reports that new building permits have been filed, calling for a 28-story hotel/apartment building combo designed by architect Nobutaka Ashihara. No designs have been released, but DOB filings show that it will have 152 units and rise 296 feet. Construction photos and design deets are welcome on the tipline."

Brookfield To Break Ground On Manhattan West Tomorrow



Quote:
After six years of promises, Brookfield Office Properties has finally started to build a deck over the exposed Amtrak rail yard for its planned Manhattan West development project.

The platform is a long-awaited breakthrough in Mayor Bloomberg’s dream to create a vast new Hudson Yards District in the once-forlorn far West 30s that will be home to major companies, residents and a wealth of public amenities.

It’s also crucial to publicly traded Brookfield’s plan for a $4.5 billion, five million-square-foot project on five acres anchored by two tall office towers and an apartment building.

The deck was first announced in 2006 but held up by caution over the real-estate market, changes to the original mix of towers and delays in negotiating agreements with Amtrak over use of the rail lines through the yard.

Manhattan West spans the irregular rectangle bounded by Ninth and Dyer avenues and West 31st and 33rd streets. Most but not all of it consists of the exposed train yard 65 feet below street level.

Brookfield CEO Dennis Friedrich told The Post, “Excavation started a while ago. This is the formal launch of the next phase.”

Giant machines will soon appear on-site to erect a street-level surface comprised of 16 “bridges.” The deck will occupy 50 percent of the entire site.

Friedrich said the platform will be finished in late 2014 and the site will be ready to receive tenants by 2016.

He estimated Brookfield’s land and platform costs at a total $700 million. The deck is to be financed with a five-year, $340 million construction loan from a bank consortium including HSBC, Bank of New York Mellon and four others.

Brookfield will invest more than $300 million of its own capital with no public subsidies.

Groundbreaking Set For $350 Million Bronx Development



Quote:
Signature Urban Properties and Monadnock Construction are set to break ground on the first phase of a 10-building, 1,300-unit apartment complex in the Bronx, to date the borough’s largest private residential project, the Wall Street Journal reported. The Compass Residences complex, to be erected in the Crotona Park East and West Farms section of the South Bronx in an area bordered by the Sheridan Expressway, will be built in an area currently composed of defunct warehouses. The area was rezoned from fully industrial to mixed-use in 2011, to allow for the Signature development. The buildings will rise as high as 15 stories, towering over the low- and mid-rise structures on surrounding blocks.

Gale International Moves Forward With Flatiron Condo Plans



Quote:
Gale International has closed on the purchase of a development site at 21 West 20th Street. The investment and development firm, which last fall agreed to purchase the property from Gary Barnett’s Extell Development, has also acquired air rights needed to move ahead with the construction of a 15-story luxury condominium tower at the site, The Real Deal has learned.

Gale — best known for its role as the master plan developer of a $35 billion, 1,500-acre new business district in New Songo, South Korea — paid $9.75 million for the property, the company told The Real Deal today. Massey Knakal Realty Services brokered the deal, which was Gale’s first in Manhattan.
Perhaps Gale is looking for more opportunities in NYC? SUPERTALL opportunities???

301 E.50th St. Revealed



Quote:
Several years after a Midtown East crane collapse killed seven, the site adjacent to that collapse, 301 East 50th Street sold to developer Fishman Holdings. The developer commissioned Cook + Fox to design a condo for the spot, and a permit filed this past fall indicated that the condo would be 28 stories, with 54 residential units and 6,200 square feet of commercial space. A tipster passes along the above rendering for the project, though it doesn't appear on the Cook + Fox website, so we don't know how current it us. According to DOB records, the initial plan for the site was disapproved in mid-December.

Yes I tried the search and also found nothing. Seems deserving of its own thread.

N.Y. Cosmos propose Queens soccer stadium, as part of $400M complex



Quote:
The New York Cosmos have revealed plans to develop a $400 million mixed-use complex, including restaurants, retail space, a hotel and a soccer stadium on two sites near Belmont Park, which could rival previously announced plans to bring a Major League Soccer stadium in Queens, according to the Wall Street Journal.



The Cosmos, which achieved prominence in the 1970s with Brazilian star Pelé, want to bring a privately financed 25,000-seat stadium to state-owned land near the Belmont Park horse-racing track. In September, the state issued a call for developers for the two Nassau County sites, totaling 36 acres.

And the Cosmos’ plan has already seen some political support. ”The idea of the stadium with the retail component and the hotel is exciting,” State Senator Jack Martins, a Nassau County Republican, said. “It certainly has a much greater upside [than solely retail] with the benefit to the county and state in terms of economic development and tax revenue.”

But the plan could upend a controversial proposal for another Major League Soccer stadium at Flushing Meadows Corona Park, as some doubt whether Queens could support multiple professional soccer teams.

But so far both developers appear undeterred. “This city is big enough to deal with three soccer teams. In London, they’ve got seven or eight,” Seamus O’Brien, chairman and CEO of the New York Cosmos said. “I say bring it on.”

Ashland Demo In Brooklyn Makes Way For Plaza And BAM Residential Tower



Quote:
The warehouse at 246 Ashland Place is finito, after the DOB approved demolition permits in November. Now that it’s gone, there’s space for two coming developments. A small part of the parcel will be dedicated to the visual arts plaza outside of the Theater for a New Audience, now under construction. But a majority of the site (now a parking lot) is for the North Tower I. This site will be developed by the Gotham Organization and DT Salazar Inc., who plan for 600 new residences, half of which will be affordable. This development will also include 20,000 square feet of cultural and related office space and 20,000 square feet of retail space. The city recently released an RFP for North Tower II, which will bound the southern end of the arts plaza. And then of course there’s the BAM South Site, across from Lafayette Avenue, where the Two Trees developers recently started up the land use review process. Click through to the jump for a very helpful map outlining how the city-owned property will be divvied up. One other note: Yesterday the Brooklyn Paper reported the city has yet to rule on Two Trees’ request for a zoning change to allow more housing at the site.
