Balazs courting new investors at Meatpacking’s Standard Hotel for a future expansion



Quote:
Boutique hotelier André Balazs is looking to new investors to help him expand the trendy Standard Hotel, the New York Post reported. “We are very aggressively looking at other properties and are talking to both a circle of US and foreign investors, everything from sovereign funds to more conventional private equity,” Balazs told the Post. He added that he had had preliminary discussions with three brokerages, but nothing was on paper yet.

A new investor, Balazs told the Post, would likely be one looking to invest in other branches of the Standard. The iconic Meatpacking District hotel carries a cachet with the New York City nightlife crowd due to its chic restaurants and bars such as the Standard Biergarten, the Standard Grill and the celebrity haunt the Boom Boom Room.

Dune Capital Management and Greenfield Partners, the two majority investors in the Standard, are considering a sale of their majority stake in hotel, in a deal that could be worth $300 million. Balazs told the Post he hoped a sale would fetch even more than that, and if a deal were to be made, it would be “the next year, year and a half.”

Stalled Midtown skyscraper may have second coming


250 E.57th St.

Quote:
A planned 715-foot Midtown East skyscraper that was put on hold by the real-estate downturn may be resurrected by a group of developers led by World-Wide Group, the Wall Street Journal reported.

As part of the financing deal for the tower — located at the southwest corner of 57th Street and Second Avenue — Starwood Property Trust would provide a roughly $450 million loan and J.P. Morgan Chase and Rose Associates would make equity investments, according to multiple real estate executives who spoke with the Journal.

The total cost of the tower could not be determined. The project will have 270 units, according to a building permit application filed in November, and the units would be a mix of rentals and condominiums, people involved in the deal told the Journal.

Details on the tower have yet to be announced, although the developers have said they plan to start construction later this year. A building permit application filed in November calls for 270 units, and people involved in the deal said the apartments would be a mix of rental and condominium units, which would be located at the top.

The land for the project is owned by the city’s Department of Education, which inked a 75-year, $325 million lease deal with World-Wide in 2006. As part of the deal, World-Wide agreed to rebuild two aging schools on the site.

[B]Residents Fume Over Demolition Plan For Former Stock Exchange Building
http://www.dnainfo.com/new-york/2013...hange-building

"The Fisher Brothers representatives also fielded questions about what exactly the company would be building once the old structure was demolished.

Last year, the company bought both 22 Thames St. and neighboring American Stock Exchange building 86 Trinity Place for $150 million, according to reports.

Adams said at the meeting that 22 Thames would be turned into a mixed residential and commercial space, but he wouldn’t give any details. The developer has not yet submitted plans to the Department of Buildings.

Previous owners of the space said they wanted to turn 22 Thames into a 60-story tower."

200 E.39th St.



Quote:
A 19-story tower with 91 apartments is in the works for 200 East 39th Street. A tipster writes, "The site of the old Frontier Diner on 39th and 3rd (which burned down in 2010) is finally getting some activity. The shell of the old building has finally been torn down." Department of Buildings records confirm that such a structure, built by SK Development and designed by Rawlings Architects, will rise in that spot, anchored by retail tenants with studios, 1BRs, and 2BRs above.

Rawlings has worked on some other notable projects, like 50 Franklin and 14 West 14th Street, and this building seems to follow its general predilection for simply adorned, modern exteriors with layered facades. The southern-facing side will apparently have a "modern geometric design," but we can't tell yet from the renderings what it'll be. CM & Associates Construction estimates that it will be finished in the third quarter of 2014.

146 South 4th St. Williamsburg



Quote:
Please welcome to the party, 146 South 4th Street—the newest, and possibly the ugliest, addition to the North Brooklyn rental world. Developed by the Rabsky Group and designed by ND Architecture, the 11-story thing is a hodgepodge of what looks like brick, glass, and Corten steel panels. It gives us the general feeling of "ugh." BuzzBuzz Home reports there will be 113 apartments, and the building will have a lounge, bike storage, a gym, and a rooftop terrace. The interiors will supposedly be designed with a "modern rustic look," which does not sound promising.

Durst Fetner changes course at Herald Square tower
http://therealdeal.com/blog/2013/04/...-square-tower/

"The development will have 382 residential units on floors eight through 40, and just over 30,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, lower level and second floor, the new filings show. In addition, it will have more than 119,000 square feet of office space on the second through sixth floors, the DOB filing says"

This building is absolutely massive; a 21st century, likely value engineered version of the London Terraces towers on 23rd and 24th street between 9th and 10th Avenues.

Related Signs leases For 80% Of Coach Tower



Quote:
Red letter day for huge Hudson Yards project

Developer The Related Cos. announces that it has finalized leases with three major tenants—Coach, L'Oreal and SAP—for its first tower, locked in $1.4 billion in financing and inked a $1 billion lease for half of the site.


The Related Cos., which plans to build a huge mixed-use complex at the Hudson Rail Yards west of Pennsylvania Station, took not one or two but several major steps forward on Wednesday. For openers, the big developer announced that it has signed three major tenants and arranged financing for the first of several towers it plans to build at the site. In addition Related said it has signed a $1 billion 99-year lease with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority for the eastern half of the site where the project will rise.

Related also said it has inked a roughly $750 million deal with Coach, under which the luxury leather goods maker will purchase 740,000 square feet in the first tower to rise on the site, an 895-foot-tall spire with a total of 1.7 million square feet. Coach will own its space as an office condominium. Meanwhile, cosmetics maker L'Oreal and German technology company SAP also signed leases at the building, for 402,000 square feet and 115,000 square feet, respectively. The three deals with tenants, the broad outlines of which had been previously disclosed and which had been in negotiations for months, now anchor more than 70% of the space in the tower.

With those commitments in hand, Related was able to nail down $1.4 billion in equity and debt financing for the first tower. Related has a number of financial backers in the huge project, including its partner, Canadian investment fund Oxford Properties Group.

The tower, designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, will rise at the corner of West 30th Street and 10th Avenue at the current northern terminus of the High Line, whose third and final leg will eventually wrap around Hudson Yards' southern and western flanks. Ground was broken for the first building, known as the South Tower, earlier this year. Work is scheduled to be completed in 2015.

The South Tower kicks off the massive $15 billion rail yards development, which will ultimately include more than 13 million square feet of residential, office, retail and public space on a $1 billion platform to be built over the rail yards.

DOB Issues More Demo Permits for Willoughby West



Quote:
The Department of Buildings issued three more demolition permits for the massive Willoughby West rental development planned for Willoughby Street between Duffield and Bridge streets. One’s for the large four-story building at 214 Duffield Street, on the corner of Willoughby. You can see what that building used to look like after the jump. Another demo permit is for the three-story building at 373 Bridge Street, and the last for a one-story building at 98 Willoughby Street. The row of townhouses along Bridge Street are long gone (see the photo after the jump) as well as another grouping of townhouses along Willoughby (pictured above). It won’t be long before this lot is totally empty. Demolition permits started coming through early this year after the developer spent years picking up all these properties. A 57-story, 861-unit rental tower will go up on this corner.
