Extell set to grow Midtown East site
Firm has three buildings within a larger parcel that city projects could be 925K sf hotel

Extell Development is buying a small building on 49th Street in Midtown East that would add to a garage and a mixed-use building that the company already owns on the block between Lexington and Third avenues. Extell signed a contract on the four-story 143 East 49th Street from Ramosar Realty last April, and plans to close the purchase on or before June 30, city property records filed this month say. No price was given for the purchase of the 4,875-square foot residential and retail building that is squeezed between the hotel and another apartment building.

This would be the third contiguous building that Extell owns on the block. The largest so far is the seven-story garage at 138 East 50th Street, that Extell purchased for $60.9 million on Dec. 1, 2011. It has 120,492 square feet of development rights. On the same day, a company affiliated with Extell purchased 151 East 49th Street for $9.6 million, city records show. That four-story structure comes with 22,080 square feet of development rights, data from PropertyShark shows.

It is not known if Extell is building a modest tower, or something larger, because the firm did not respond to requests for comment. However, these three buildings are within a larger footprint, identified as site number 17, that Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Midtown East rezoning proposal envisions could be redeveloped as a massive 924,893-square-foot hotel if a total of six parcels were combined. The largest building within the potential site is the W New York at 541 Lexington Avenue, owned by Host Hotels & Resorts.

The city’s plan identified site 17, fronting Lexington Avenue between 49th and 50th streets, for a large hotel. Barnett now owns three of the six parcels the city projects would be part of the large site.

Host Hotels did not respond to a question asking if it was negotiating with Extell to redevelop the site. An individual who would not identify himself at Ramosar Realty denied the building was for sale.

Extell, headed by president Gary Barnett, is the most active builder in Manhattan, a survey by The Real Deal found, with at least 11 active projects totaling 5.7 million square feet. This potential site and other similar parcels were not included in that count.

The memorandum of contract noting the expected sale of 143 East 49th Street was signed by Extell’s Executive Vice President Dov Hertz and recorded on March 6, city records show.

Interesting. He is assembling properties around this site. This site most definitely, should be a supertall candidate should the ME Rezoning is approved.

PMG May Build 18 Story West Village Tower



Quote:
According to a commenter here, the 6th Avenue Car Wash has been closed and boarded up.

Located at 6th and Broome for at least 30 years, the car wash was sold recently, much to the dismay of its employees who walked out over the sale. They made the case that the sale was made as retaliation against their unionizing. They have since been given new jobs at other car washes.

So what's to become of this prime Soho space? Permits on file reveal that it's in the hands of developer PMG, a company "dedicated to its core business strategy: aggressively acquiring land and properties and successfully transforming them to high-end luxury properties."

This spot is zoned for light manufacturing. But, pending zoning approval, PMG has an application on file with the Department of Buildings for a new residential high-rise building here --18 stories high, 27 units.

Silverstein's Jeremy Moss Talks 2,3 And 4 WTC



Quote:
Before Jeremy Moss, senior vice president of leasing at Silverstein Properties, joined the firm four and a half years ago, he spent eight years working at Forest City Ratner, a tenure that culminated in a role managing the leasing of the office space at the New York Times building. He called working alongside Bruce Ratner and MaryAnne Gilmartin on the Times building “a great learning experience that prepared me well for the World Trade Center.” Mr. Moss helped oversee leasing at Silverstein’s 7 World Trade Center and is now leading efforts at 2, 3 and 4 World Trade Center. “I feel fortunate to be able to work on such a historic project, particularly as a native New Yorker,” Mr. Moss said when he sat down with The Commercial Observer last week to discuss his leasing efforts at the World Trade Center, its impacts on lower Manhattan and the future of the market.

----

Where are you focusing your energy next?

With 7 World Trade Center fully leased, we’re focused on 4 World Trade Center, which will open at the end of 2013. It’s the next chapter in the history of the rebuilding of the World Trade Center, and I’m really looking forward to walking people into that lobby and showing them the extraordinary architecture and the views. We are very focused on leasing at that building, and we’re in discussions with a number of different companies looking for larger blocks of space—anywhere from 200,000 to one million [square] feet.

Who are you marketing it to, and what can tenants look forward to?

The lobby has a 46-foot-high ceiling, which creates an extraordinary impression when you enter the building. There’s a granite floor, floor-to-ceiling glass and polished black granite on the wall, which is designed to reflect the park behind you as you enter the lobby, intended to make you feel like you’re outside. I can’t think of another lobby like it in New York City. And up top, you have 360-degree views that are spectacular, and the advantage that we have in the location is that we don’t have any other building obstructing our views—we have views of the river, we have views of Midtown—so it’s really spectacular.

We’re seeing interest from a whole range of different tenants in all sorts of industries, and I think that speaks to two things: the appeal of new construction because of the efficiency it offers and the impact that a sustainable building can have on productivity.

Can you talk more about those impacts?

The buildings are all LEED-certified. That not only has obvious societal benefits, but it has a significant impact on the experience of the people working in the building, their satisfaction level and productivity. The buildings are all designed with floor-to-ceiling glass and extra-high ceilings, which allow for an abundance of natural light to permeate the entire space. The views make everyone feel like they’re working in a special place. And the awareness that the space is having a positive impact on the environment also makes people feel really good about their work space.

What’s the situation at 2 and 3 World Trade Center?

We’re in discussion with tenants that would anchor 3 World Trade Center, which would allow us to continue construction to completion by the end of 2016. Construction started and we built the first few floors, which gives us a significant advantage in terms of the time frame within which we can deliver the building to prospective tenants. Two World Trade Center is complete up to street level, and that’s a building that will be triggered by a lease commitment in the future—by a large anchor tenant.

A New Hotel/Condo Plan Appears for Long-Stalled 610 Lex



Quote:
The sad, sad vacant lot at 610 Lexington Avenue was once destined to hold a Norman Foster-designed tower with New York's first Shangri-La hotel and condos, but developer Aby Rosen's plan was wholly scrapped after a foreclosure scare in 2011. But now, six years after that pipe dream began, it looks like Midtown is gonna get a tower after all. The firm filling Foster's shoes is SLCE Architects, whose past award-winning projects have included the likes of the Bloomberg building (just uptown at 731 Lexington) and the Top of the Rock observation deck at Rockefeller Center. Renderings of the glassy tower from SLCE's website are above, plus new filings with the Department of Buildings give a hint as to what's going to be in the 65-story structure planned for the southwest corner of 53rd Street.

Expect typical hotel amenities, like a bar, restaurant, pool, fitness room, spa, and business lounge, according to a a recently amended filing with the Department of Buildings. The hotel's common spaces and rooms will span from a ground-level lobby up to the 52nd floor, and above that will be apartments (with just two per level) till the 63rd floor. No residence in the penthouse, oddly. We don't yet know who the new hotel tenant will be, according to a rep from Rosen's RFR Holding quoted anonymously in the Post last week.
FWIW more renders:

According to Curbed, these are renderings from SLCE's website.

Very similar in ways. A small 2 ft height change was included in the most recent DOB filing.

Even a Gene Kaufmann hotel would look better than that pile! Good riddance that it is being removed soon!

I remember visiting Herald Square, back in the mid-90's, and it seemed a little down-at-the-heels even back then.
