Extell Buying Cherry St. Pathmark Site In The LES, And Plans Tower(s)


2007 configuration options Curbed

Quote:
The Pathmark at 227 Cherry Street finally closed its doors in October, five years after neighbors held a Save Our Supermarket rally to keep it open. Word was that a large-scale residential development would finally come to the site, and Crain's says that development will be built by none other than Gary Barnett, of Extell and One57 fame. Extell is in contract to buy the site for somewhere in the vicinity of $175 million. The zoning could accommodate close to 1 million square feet in the spot, and Crain's speculates that Extell will build rentals, but that's all we know so far. (Have additional knowledge? The tipline is eager to hear it.) Once upon a time, renderings for the site offered up two possible designs, two 50-story towers or a single 55-story one.

Durst-fetner Pyramis Wins Final Approval

City Council gives the green light to Durst Fetner Residential's plans for a 32-story, 750-apartment residential building. Total of 173 affordable units will be added in the area.



Quote:
One of the most unusual apartment towers slated to rise in the city in years unanimously won the final approval of the City Council on Wednesday. Durst Fetner Residential's unusual apartment pyramid on West 57th Street won approval following an eleventh-hour deal reached last week settling a dispute over affordable housing at the project.

"The good news, which is the matra of my office and community board No. 4, is there will be, yes, by law, 35 years of income-restricted affordable housing," said City Councilwoman Gail Brewer, who represents the area.

The project, stretching the entire block between 11th Avenue and the Hudson River, will include 750 rental apartments in the ski-slope-shaped, 32-story tower designed by Danish architect, Bjarke Ingels, as well as a former industrial building with 100 additional units that will be converted into housing. This will create 173 new affordable housing units in the neighborhood. Ms. Brewer and the community board had been frustrated that the units were only affordable for 35 years, but to sell them on the project, Durst Fetner agreed to contribute $1 million into an affordable housing fund.

"We are thrilled with today's vote and are grateful to the City Council and especially Councilmember Brewer," said a Durst spokesman."Today's approval will pave the way for one of the most exciting and innovative designs to hit New York's skyline in a generation."

East River Blueway Plan Calls for a Brooklyn Bridge Beach



Quote:
Poor drainage, housing superblocks, narrow bike lanes, combined sewage overflow, and, oh yeah, the need to deal with future storm surges are just some of the issues that WXY Architecture and Design has had to confront in its design for the East River Blueway. After much discussion with the city and the public, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer will unveil the Blueway proposal that hopefully addresses all of those issues in his state of the borough address today.

The beach in question, along with a kayak launch, would go on a now-fenced-off crescent of naturally occurring sand just below the Brooklyn Bridge. Another two boat launches would be set up at the ends of 20th and 23rd streets. For storm protection, marshlands and sea walls would be added, and additional greenery along the FDR Drive would further block storm runoff. Another suggestion involves creating a new pedestrian bridge over the FDR at 14th Street that would double as a sea wall.

School With Affordable Housing Breaks Ground in Harlem



Quote:
Harlem RBI and the Jonathan Rose Cos. will break ground Thursday morning on The East Harlem Center for Living and Learning, a 143,000-square-foot development that will include affordable housing and a charter school with kindergarten through eighth grades.

The two organizations teamed up on the $78.5 million development on East 104th Street, between Second and Third avenues, which will be the new site of the DREAM Charter School, as well as 89 units of affordable housing and roughly 3,000 square feet of office space dedicated for nonprofits.

Harlem RBI operates both the school—which is presently located in a public school on East 103rd Street—and an after-school baseball program aimed at at-risk children. New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira sits on Harlem RBI's board of directors and planned to attend the groundbreaking. The effort's roots date back to 2010, when the group began looking into buying land from the New York City Housing Authority to build its school. They were represented by Jonathan Rose Cos.

Add to this several residential projects along 125th St as well as a new Whole Foods, and Harlem is swinging!

NYC's first twisting tower. Nice.
I actually like this design, too. Better than the old one.

Permits being renewed for 50 West St.



Quote:
50 West Street, the Helmut Jahn-designed hotel/condo combo tower that has been on hold since its financing dried up in 2008 is—wait for it—still on hold. However, developer Time Equities is renewing the project's special permits (for the garage, the public urban plaza connecting West and Washington Streets, and certain minor setback wavers) while simultaneously "seeking financing," which means that the 65-story tower could actually end up getting built at some point in the not too distant future.
Elements of the tower have already been reworked in the wake of hurricane sandy such as above-ground mechanical systems. So if financing comes through, this one could sneakily restart...

Times Square Getting 28 Story, 510 Room Hotel

Quote:
A pair of developers is moving forward with plans to build a 510-room pod-style hotel project in Times Square, filing plans to demolish three low-rise buildings near the corner of West 42nd Street and Ninth Avenue to make way for a 28-story tower. Developers the Friedman Group and Landis Group are partnering to build the 220,000-square-foot project at 400 West 42nd Street on parcels they acquired for about $80 million before the market collapsed, Robert Friedman, a principal with the Friedman Group, told The Real Deal.

They filed plans Tuesday to demolish 571 Ninth Avenue, 573 Ninth Avenue and 406 West 42nd Street, all between one and four stories, city Department of Buildings data show.

Plans call for 140-square-foot hotel rooms with a targeted price of $225 per night. The building will also have 38 larger extended-stay hotel units, as well as 25,000 square feet of retail, Friedman said. No operator has been selected yet, nor have any retail tenants been lined up, he noted.

The latest design calls for a shorter building than originally envisioned in 2009, when the developer filed plans for a 38-story hotel. But the total bulk of the tower has not changed, Friedman said. The new hotel increases the number of rooms from 440 to 510 because the building is shorter with larger, more efficient floorplates.

L.I. College Hospital Site In Cobble Hill Could Fetch $500 Million, Result In Massive Housing Development



Quote:
The sale of the Long Island College Hospital complex could reap hundreds of millions of dollars, according to brokers and real estate experts familiar with the campus. That would make the sale one of the largest ever in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn.

The hospital is running deep in the red, prompting its owner, SUNY Downstate, which purchased the complex of medical buildings south of Atlantic Avenue three years ago, to begin pursuing a closure and sale of the facility.

Brad Lander, a city councilman for Cobble Hill, said that estimates of the complex's worth have topped $500 million. Stephen Palmese, a broker at Massey Knakal Realty Services who specializes in selling properties in that part of Brooklyn, concurred with the estimate.

"With the Barclays Center and Brooklyn Bridge Park nearby, this is the real tipping point for the neighborhood," Mr. Palmese said. "You would have an over 200,000-square-foot piece of property that now becomes a living, breathing part of the residential neighborhood. That's colossal."

The LICH campus is made up of five main buildings and a parking structure sprawled along several blocks west of Hicks Street. A developer would likely seek to convert the existing structures to residential, since the site is overbuilt by current zoning regulations.

"It's a lot of real estate and a lot of residential units," Mr. Lander said.

This is pretty close to Silverstein's new 60 story rental, and Extell's new rental. West 42nd continues to change.

Developers move to demolish buildings to construct 510-unit Times Square hotel

Will This 998-Foot Tower of Gardens Rise On South Street?



Quote:
While we know for sure that Santiago Calatrava's tower will never rise at 80 South Street, another firm has been creating and sharing designs for a different tower at the location. Since last May, Morali Architects have been posting renderings on their Facebook page. Originally, the plans showed a 780-foot tall tower mixed-use tower with cascading gardens and a solar panel skin. Now, New York YIMBY spotted their latest iteration, a 998-foot tall skyscraper bisected by skygardens that would have a boutique hotel on the bottom and apartments on the top.

No applications have been filed with the Department of Buildings for 80 South Street, but Anthony Morali, via Facebook, said that the project is in "the review phase only" and they are "finalizing certification with City Planning." He continues:

Quote:
We are still in the process of attracting a a possible hotel partner. Also there are many facets of the project that still need to be addressed. Environmental. DEP. Structural System. (We are exploring the use of the COBIAX concrete system which uses 33 percent less concrete and a potential LEED component ). Again although no public review is required, there will be numerous filings and we will keep you updated.

Hudson Square Rezoning Goes Back To City Council



Quote:
A City Council hearing on a rezoning of Hudson Square that would make way for new residential development will take place Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal reported. What has traditionally been a bustling district during the day but a sleepy one after work hours would stand to be rejuvenated by the rezoning. Trinity Real Estate, the area’s largest landlord, intends to build new apartments in the area. The rezoning was approved by the City Planning Commission last month.
Quite an immense swath covered by this zoning change request:


http://www.citylandnyc.org/proposed-...begins-review/


http://www.archpaper.com/e-board_rev.asp?News_ID=5745

The bits that residents like:


http://therealdeal.com/blog/2012/10/...hudson-square/


http://www.crainsnewyork.com/article...TATE/121019991

More green space, more pedestrian friendly improvements and lower building heights.


And the bits they have objected to:



Unlimited heights that resulted in the hideous Trump Soho to be restrained.

Quote:
The buildings will be a bit wider, though, so as not to lose their density, but they can only rise to 290 feet, rather than 320 feet. Stocky towers instead of slender spires, basically. But that is in many ways fitting with the areas already stolid building stock of former printing plants, which typified the neighborhood for a century before it became a popular haven for Soho expats and minor celebrities (hello James Gandolfini and Lou Reed!).

http://observer.com/2012/11/hudson-s...re-open-space/

Trump Soho, the Tour Montparnasse of the neighborhood.

So Trump SoHo will remain the tallest eye-sore in the vicinity. Regardless it's definitelya nice, large proposal overall.

Wider buildings block more view than slim but taller buildings. So in the end the residents will loose more of their view and the area will actually feel more dense instead of less.
