HFZ’s Turtle Bay condos to be called "Halcyon NY"


curbed

Quote:
HFZ Capital Group’s condominium development in Turtle Bay, once the site of a deadly crane collapse, will be called Halcyon NY and will include a mix of one-bedrooms through four-bedrooms, priced at between $1.5 million and $5 million, Curbed reported.

The building is set to reach 32 stories, with a total of 123 condos, as The Real Deal reported. In 2008, the crane accident killed seven people and damaged nearby buildings, effectively forcing out the original developer. HFZ later took over the project, at 303 East 51st Street on the corner of Second Avenue.

Murray Hill Getting A New Mixed User

Quote:
A new mixed-use retail and rental building is in the works for 200 East 39th Street in Murray Hill.

SK Development, CB Developers and Ironstate Development are collaborating on an 18-story building on the corner of 39th Street and 3rd Avenue. The project, which is being designed by Rawlings Architects, will rise 213 feet and have 91 units, according to Department of Buildings permits filed last week.

One Hudson Yards unveils its designs



Quote:
After being stalled for more than a year, Extell Development Company has released new renderings of its Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed One Hudson Yards project, Curbed reported.

Plans calls for a 56-story, 1.7 million-square-foot office tower on 11th Avenue between West 33rd and West 34th streets.

Extell head Gary Barnett announced last year that the project would not move forward until the tower was half-leased at $50 to $100 per foot. And as the Real Deal previously reported, Barnett is still waiting on Jones Lang LaSalle to land a tenant.

Boxy Building Designed by ODA To Join PS1, 5 Pointz in LIC



Quote:
A new development—defined by boxes jutting out all over the place—is headed for a pocket of Long Island City currently populated by MoMA PS1 and the 5 Pointz building (pictured on the left side of the rendering above, defined by its graffiti, and destined for destruction), the Observer reports.

Details about the project are scant, besides its exact location at 22-25 Jackson Avenue. Buzz Buzz Home got the rendering via the Facebook page of one of the principals of ODA Architecture, the firm behind this sub-10-story building, even though it's not yet up on ODA's website.

Okay stuff. But I'd like to see more traditionalist / neo-historicist projects from NYC.

Are there any more? Or smaller townhouses? I'd love to see these!

I think that it is better not to build anything on that place than build something horrible It is very sad, that they are trying to save money, making projects worse for one of the most ambitious and greatest project in the USA

Foxy and boxy: new rendering for 15 Renwick in Soho:

http://blog.buzzbuzzhome.com/2013/03...wick-soho.html

"The project will have 31 apartments ranging from one-bedroom to five-bedroom units, including three townhouses with ground-floor access and four penthouses with terraces. The building will feature front and rear gardens, a public zen garden, a gym and private storage, according to the ODA Architecture site, which posted a bunch of intriguing renderings."

JDS, PMG partnership mull adding 200 feet to Steinway-adjacent tower

Purchase of West 57th Street site likely allows developers to expand scope of planned project

March 28, 2013 05:30PMBy Katherine Clarke and Mel Gray



A previous rendering of the tower

A partnership led by Michael Stern’s JDS Development and Property Markets Group is considering increasing the height of its planned hotel and condominium tower on West 57th Street to up to 900 feet, following the acquisition of the adjacent Steinway building, a principal at PMG told The Real Deal.

The partnership paid $46 million for a stake in the 247,000-square foot building at 109 West 57th Street belonging to Steinway Musical Instruments, the manufacturer of the classic pianos, in partnership with Atlantic Investors earlier this month. The purchase likely allows the developers to ramp up their plans for an adjacent site they bought last spring with Starwood Capital, Kevin Maloney of PMG told The Real Deal last month.

The JDS/PMG partnership paid $40 million for a stake in 107 West 57th Street, between Sixth and Seventh avenues, and subsequently filed plans for a skinny, 679-foot, 51-story condominium property on the 43-foot-wide lot, to be designed by architecture firm Cetra Ruddy. It was slated to have just 29 condominium units. However, the addition of the Steinway site likely gives the developers the option to build a larger structure comparable to the likes of Extell Development’s 1,000-foot One57 down the block. The Steinway building has close to 45,000 square feet of air rights attached, according to PropertyShark.

Michael Stern of JDS declined to comment on the deal or the plans for the property. Plans for a larger project have not yet been filed with the Department of Buildings, records show.

While the specific details of the tower have not yet been decided, Maloney told The Real Deal earlier this month that it will likely have a hotel component with condominium units above. All apartments will have unobstructed Central Park views, he said.

Maloney noted that the developers will have to work around limitations linked to the Steinway building’s status as a registered New York landmark. The fašade on the first four floors of the building is protected, and the property features a ground-floor, two-story rotunda with a 35-foot domed ceiling. A spokesperson for the Landmarks Preservation Commission was not immediately available for comment.

Village AIDS Memorial Loses the Greenery, Raises Funding



Quote:
After raising $1 million in funding, the New York City AIDS Memorial released updated renderings showing a triangular canopy that's much in line with what the Landmarks Preservation Commission hoped to see. The updated 18-foot tall structure, designed by the Brooklyn-based firm Studio a+1, keeps the same general shape and the water feature, but it is no longer covered with ivy and flowers. LPC had raised concerns about the upkeep of the greenery, as well as how much light it would block. Paving stones beneath the canopy will feature poetry and quotes about the city's response to the AIDS epidemic.

The group is currently working toward a $4 million fundraising goal, and construction should begin some time next year, according to DNAinfo.
