I said this over SSP, but I'll say it again here, in the background you can see the St Vincent's condominium conversion which has been U/C for months, and looks pretty good in those renderings.

Argh! There are simultaneous discussions about the SAME STUFF on Wired, SSP and SSC. I have to jump site to site to catch up. Why can't all of these sites merge?

Howard Hughes Corp. project at South Street Seaport may include hotel, market-rate apartments


Hughes giving this controversial plan another try?

Quote:
Howard Hughes Corporation may build a hotel, retail space and market-rate residential apartments at South Street Seaport, a letter of intent seen by Downtown Express reveals, ending months of speculation about the developer’s plans for the megaproject.

A letter of intent between the two parties had previously been released in December 2011, but specifics of the mixed-use project had been blacked out. Now, the uncensored version of the letter reveals plans for a 95,000-square-foot hotel, 280,000-square feet of market-rate residential apartments, and roughly 82,000 square feet of retail space. The letter did not specify where the buildings would be located, but the scale of the project indicates that at least some of them would have to be in the newly rezoned waterfront area. The New Market Building, which lies outside the confines of the South Street Seaport historic district, is a likely location for the project.

The details have incensed some community members, who allege that Howard Hughes Corporation willfully ignored requests for details about the project. “We’ve been asking [Howard Hughes] for a master plan for the site all along. They have obviously not been telling us the truth when they said they didn’t have one,” John Fratta, chairperson of Community Board 1’s Seaport Committee, told Downtown Express upon hearing of the new information.

For NYC apartments, $100M is the new $50M



Quote:
Sticker shock fades with Pierre, One Beacon Court listings

April 01, 2013 12:30PMBy Hayley Kaplan

Last week, news broke that Steven Cohen, founder of the hedge fund SAC Capital Advisors, would list his duplex penthouse at One Beacon Court, the condominium tower at 151 East 58th Street in Midtown, for $115 million. That figure would have marked a record high asking price for a New York City home, but it was soon eclipsed by the reported $125 million asking price for a triplex penthouse at the Pierre at 795 Fifth Avenue, formerly owned by the late financial analyst Martin Zweig. And while those listings would make just about anyone’s jaw drop, real estate insiders were almost blasé about the price tags.

“The new $50 million is $100 million,” said Richard Steinberg, a broker at Warburg Realty. “You can ask whatever you want for a property. Time will tell if it will fetch it.”

Either could result in an eight-figure or even nine-figure sale, brokers said, given the size and singularity of the properties and the rapidly escalating prices at the highest end of the Manhattan residential market.

Considering the square footage of the apartments, neither asking price is surprising, said Jonathan Miller, president of appraisal firm Miller Samuel.

“Ten-thousand square feet and above seems to be the number when you might see this [asking price],” he said.

Zweig reportedly paid $21.5 million for the 16-room Pierre penthouse in 1999 — a record at the time. The five-bedroom, six-bathroom home is now listed with Elizabeth Sample, Brenda Powers and Serena Boardman, all of Sotheby’s International Realty.

The penthouse was “a very difficult property to price because it’s a one-of-a-kind property, like a piece of art,” Sample said.

St. Vincent's Development Market-Ready



Quote:
We now have a progress update on the old St. Vincent's Hospital site, which (after a mega development battle) Rudin Management is turning into several buildings chock-full of condos. How do we know? According to Triple Mint, "The domain names relating to the north side of the properties were registered as follows: 140west12.com, 150west12.com and 160west12.com. Meanwhile, on the south side of the properties the domains registered were 145west11.com and 155west11.com. Permits on file with the city indicate each of these addresses will have a lobby of its own." There will be about 350 new units altogether (a mix of apartments, maisonettes, and penthouses), and construction is expected to finish in two years.

Long-Stalled Atelier 2 Shows Signs Of Life Off to the West



Quote:
The plan to build Atelier 2, a condo at 605 West 42nd Street, came back to life last fall with one major modification—a switch from condo to rentals. A tipster passes along the above construction shot, and yes, it's alive. Back in 2007, the plan was for a 57-story building, according to the old DOB permit. A few modifications have recently been filed, but we didn't spot any new numbers on building height.
