Another redesign for that area? Or am I wrong? Oh wait I am wrong, this is across the East River park. It looks nice but only in Brooklyn, luckily not in Manhattan. I think these units will be sold quickly due to it's location.

JDS pays $170M for First Avenue site, plans luxury residential development


Quote:

Michael Stern
In his most ambitious project to date, Michael Stern’s JDS Development has paid $170 million for a full block on First Avenue that he plans to convert into a luxury apartment development, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The 33-year-old Stern purchased the complex, located between East 35th and East 36th Streets, in partnership with hedge fund Baupost Group, sources familiar with the transaction told the Journal. “The neighborhood is crying out for something modern and upscale,” Stern, who hopes to break ground on the $600 million project this summer, told the Journal. “It really is a chance to shape the skyline.”

This little bastard will easily be a skyscraper.

The chopped version is obviously fake, for those who don't bother to read. Two sky bridges over the Williamsburg bridge? Not happening. The real design by SHOP is not bad. I prefer it, overall, to the old design. Although I'm not really liking the copper building with the yellow windows to the left.

I still like the Raphael Vinoly design much more since it's more urban and complimentary to the skyline across the river. I hope that the SHoP design is an early rough draft and that it will be refined. I'm a big fan of their work overall but this one falls flat for me as it stands.

This is quite a nice structure. It's sad to see more of the "old Times Square" razed.

Turtle Bay comes out from under its shell:
http://therealdeal.com/blog/2013/03/...der-its-shell/

Quote:
an executive at investment firm Fishman Holdings–a subsidiary of Tel Aviv–based telecom giant the Fishman Group told the Journal. The company plans to break ground this year on a 28-story, 54-unit condo at 301 East 50th Street.

A block away, at 303 East 51st Street, a development that was the site of a 2008 crane collapse lies incomplete. But HFZ Capital’s Zeil Feldman, who purchased the site in 2009, plans to enlarge the original foundation and create a bigger, 32-story, 112-unit condominium project. “The whole community is excited about getting rid of this eyesore,” Feldman told the Journal.

I dunno i think its not that bad. It would be hard to get an approval for such a project in SoHo if it would really stand out. I think it would fit rather nicely for SoHo. Sort of a modern looking of a SoHo cast iron facade.

looks great...thank god it's not anther glass or faux brick facade, and it pays homage to the cast iron buildings in the neighborhood.

everybody's a critic, if it's a regular infill "it's not daring enough"...if it's trying to be a little creative or innovative "it looks stupid"

the same goes for the new Two Trees proposal
