Moinian's Hudson Yards Tower Will Twist Upward, New Renderings Show



Quote:
New renderings are out today of developer Joseph Moinian’s forthcoming 1.7 million-square-foot tower near Hundson Yards, the New York Post reported. The 1,000-foot tower is designed by Dan Kaplan of FXFOWLE and will twist from its base to catch the sunlight. “It has a subtle, elegant spin and only rotates the 22 degrees as you go up,” Kaplan, said. “It’s enough to give it a distinctive form, but not so much that it contorts the building.”

Catching the sunlight will also add to the building’s efficiency, since the project will be feature solar-paneled awnings, or “eyebrows,” that simultaneously act as shades for the south-side building tenants occupants, while generating electricity with photovoltaic cells.

The building, which is located at 3 Hudson Boulevard, between West 34th and 35th streets, will also have several roof terraces and a rooftop deck with shielding from the wind.

“He’s been a magician in making this design efficient and beautiful and LEED Platinum,” said Arthur Mirante, tri-state president of Avison Young, which is heading up the marketing for the Moinian Group. Mirante added that asking rents for the base will start in the $80s per foot and rise from there and that there is a possibility for residential on the top floors.

City Planning Commission approves Hudson Square rezoning proposal



Quote:
The City Planning Commission voted today to approve a proposal to rezone Hudson Square to allow for a more mixed-use neighborhood with larger buildings. The proposal now heads to City Council, which will have 50 days to conduct a public hearing and vote on whether the rezoning will take effect.
BIG win for developers but the City Council hearing could get contentious...

13-Story Apartment Building Coming to Empty East Houston Lot
Friday, January 25, 2013, by Jessica Dailey



"A new 78-unit residential complex is set to rise 13 stories on an empty lot at East Houston and Ridge Streets, the LoDown reports. The land—327-329 East Houston, 331 East Houston, and 163 Ridge Street—sold last summer to a developer for $12.4 million. Halpern Real Estate Ventures is behind the project and Stephen B. Jacobs Group is the architect..."

Renderings Unveiled for Toll Brothers' 160 East 22nd Street
Friday, January 25, 2013, by Sara Polsky



"The signage at 160 East 22nd Street is rather cagey about the building's look, revealing only a fragment of an architectural detail. So the full rendering, above, was a particularly welcome arrival to the Curbed inbox. The 21-story building, on the lot where Kaish & Taub once planned The Thing That Ate Gramercy, will have 81 condo units. The pricing hasn't been finalized yet, but reps tell us the building will hit the market next month..."

Loew's Kings Theater In Flatbush, Brooklyn: $93.9 Million Restoration Of Historic Venue Begins

Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz broke ground Wednesday on the restoration of one of New York's oldest and grandest cinemas: The Loews King's Theater in Flatbush.

From the press release:

Originally constructed in 1929, the 3,200-seat Loew’s Kings Theatre is the largest indoor theater in Brooklyn. Its design was heavily influenced by the Palace of Versailles and Paris Opera House, and features ornate architectural details in the French Renaissance Style. In 1977, the theatre closed and has remained vacant since, suffering decades of neglect and deterioration.
The last film played at the theater, in 1977, was "Islands In the Stream."

The restoration project-- financed through New York City, Markowitz, Goldman Sachs, and the United Fund -- will cost $93.9 million and is part of an effort to revitalize the Flatbush Avenue corridor in Central Brooklyn.

"Not only will the new facility be the largest indoor theater in the borough—hosting everything from concerts and plays to special events and graduation ceremonies—it will be an engine of economic growth along Flatbush Avenue and for all of Central Brooklyn," said Markowitz in a statement. "The Loew’s Kings Theatre will play a leading role in the arts’ next great act, right here on Brooklyn’s big stage.”

David Anderson, CEO and president of ACE, told The Wall Street Journal the theater will host some 250 shows a year.

"It’s an unbelievable resource in a tremendous market," he said. "You think about the neighborhood and Brooklyn: 2.5 million people and they don’t have a theater like this for large-scale entertainment.”

The City coordinated a 55-year lease for the building with a consortium that includes ACE Theatrical, Goldman Sachs and the National Development Council.

Baron of Bond Street Reveals New West Chelsea Project
Monday, January 28, 2013, by Sara Polsky



"Developer Adam Gordon is known for beautiful redevelopments of Manhattan properties, including 54 Bond Street, 26 West 76th Street, and 60 Jane Street. Now he's trying something new—a ground-up condominium at 560 West 24th Street, next to Annabelle Selldorf's Sky Garage and 200 Eleventh Avenue. Gordon and Tavros Capital Partners, his partner on the project, closed on the site around Thanksgiving of 2011, and construction is now well underway, with the building scheduled to be finished around April of next year. As usual, Gordon is working with architect Steven Harris—in fact, the project will be Harris's first-ever ground-up condo project...

... The building will have eight full-floor and duplex apartments at an average of 3,300 square feet, and if that size sounds family friendly, that's what Gordon and Dov Barnett of Tavros are hoping for..."

Avalon West Chelsea, a large 700+unit residential building right off the highline on 28th st and 10th ave and a mere 2 blocks away from where the huge Hudson Yards project is now going up strong. At (only) 27 stories, AWC will join many other projects (such as the South Hudson Yards tower and 500 West 30th st) in the newly developing west side.
Rendering: (curbed)

Taken today by me:

This is part of the infamous Con Ed site, hopefully Solow uses some of the funds from the sale to get the other part of the site going. What it was set to look like originally:

Solow sells $200M plot to JDS
Full-block parcel overlooks East River in Manhattan, JDS plans apartment towers
January 30, 2013 09:30AM

"In one of the largest land deals in years, Sheldon Solow has reached an agreement with a consortium led by JDS Development Group to sell a parcel of land overlooking the East River for roughly $200 million, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The full-block piece of land is zoned for residential use, and sources told the Journal that JDS intends to build a 37-story tower and a 47-story tower on the site, with a total of more than 830 units...

... The parcel being sold is the smaller of two plots totaling nine acres that Solow bought in 2005 from Con Edison for $630 million..."
