Extell Development Pays $103M for 2.2 Acres of Soho Development Land
Park-It Mgmt Sells Site for Planned 1M SF Residential Project


http://www.costar.com/News/Article/E...147322&src=rss

Extell Development Company, a New York-based real estate developer, acquired the leased-fee interest in 2.17 acres of land at 227 Cherry St. in New York City. The site was sold by Park-It Management for $103 million, or about $47.6 million per acre.

The land is located in the Soho submarket of Manhattan. Although there is currently a supermarket on site, development plans call for a proposed residential development.

Tower Verre starts in 2014:


12-Year-Old Building at MoMA Is Doomed



Quote:
By ROBIN POGREBIN
April 10, 2013

When a new home for the American Folk Art Museum opened on West 53d Street in Manhattan in 2001 it was hailed as a harbinger of hope for the city after the Sept. 11 attacks and praised for its bold architecture. “Its heart is in the right time as well as the right place,” Herbert Muschamp wrote in his architecture review in The New York Times, calling the museum’s sculptural bronze facade “already a Midtown icon.”

Now, a mere 12 years later, the building is going to be demolished.

In its place the adjacent Museum of Modern Art, which bought the building in 2011, will put up an expansion, which will connect to a new tower with floors for the Modern on the other side of the former museum. And the folk museum building, designed by Tod Williams and Billie Tsien, will take a dubious place in history as having had one of the shortest lives of an architecturally ambitious project in Manhattan. “It’s very rare that a building that recent comes down, especially a building that was such a major design and that got so much publicity when it opened for its design — mostly very positive,” said Andrew S. Dolkart, the director of Columbia University’s historic preservation program. “The building is so solid looking on the street, and then it becomes a disposable artifact. It’s unusual and it’s tragic because it’s a notable work of 21st century architecture by noteworthy architects who haven’t done that much work in the city, and it’s a beautiful work with the look of a handcrafted facade.”

...The folk art museum, which had once envisioned the building as a stimulus for its growth, ended up selling the property, at 45 West 53d Street, to pay off the $32 million it had borrowed to finance an expansion. It now operates at a smaller site on Lincoln Square, at West 66th Street.



The former home of the American Folk Art Museum,
acclaimed when it opened 12 years ago, is going to be demolished.


Mr. Lowry said the expansion would complete the MoMA campus, which will ultimately consist of five buildings, four of them on West 53rd Street between Fifth Avenue and the Avenue of the Americas. Still to be built is an 82-story tower just west of the folk museum that is being developed by Hines, a Houston company, and was designed by the French architect Jean Nouvel. It will include apartments as well as exhibition space for the museum.

When the projects are finished the museum will gain about 10,000 square feet of gallery space at the former folk art site and about 40,000 in the Nouvel building, officials said. The Modern’s second, fourth and fifth floors will line up with those in both buildings. (The second-floor galleries are double height.) “We’ll have a completely integrated west end to the museum,” Mr. Lowry said. “Floor plates will extend seamlessly.” Precisely what will be displayed in the new galleries has yet to be determined, but Mr. Lowry said they would include work from the Modern’s “midcentury collections, early Modern collections and temporary exhibitions.” The cost for the project has not been announced, he said, and fund-raising has yet to begin.

MoMA’s 2004 renovation, designed by the Japanese architect Yoshio Taniguchi, increased the museum’s gallery space to 125,000 square feet, from 85,000 (and the overall size to 630,000 square feet, from 378,000). But the museum still needs more room for exhibitions. “We have a lot of art that we own that we would like to show,” said Jerry I. Speyer, the real estate developer who is the museum’s chairman. “When we built what exists today we didn’t get as much exhibition space as we really need.”

..

The Modern will interview architects to design the new addition, Mr. Lowry said, and hopes to select one by the end of this year. It expects to have the building demolished by then. Construction of the Nouvel project is expected to start in 2014, with both new buildings being completed simultaneously in 2017 or 2018, Mr. Lowry said. The museum has been aggressive about expansion. In 1996 it bought the Dorset Hotel, a 1920s building on West 54th Street, and two adjacent brownstones, using much of the sites for its extensive renovation in 2004. In 2007 the museum sold its last vacant parcel of land for $125 million to Hines, which decided to develop the Nouvel building and include space for the museum.



Inhabitat

Mr. Nouvel originally designed the tower, at 53 West 53d Street, with a spire rising 1,250 feet — matching the top floor of the Empire State Building — and Nicolai Ouroussoff predicted in The Times that it would be “the most exhilarating addition to the skyline in a generation.” But residents protested the height and the Department of City Planning demanded that Mr. Nouvel cut 200 feet from the top. He did so, and in 2009 the City Council approved plans for a tower that is to rise 1,050 feet.

The museum is deciding what to put at ground level at the former folk art building site — perhaps additional retail or another restaurant, Mr. Lowry said. (Its upscale restaurant, the Dining Room at the Modern, received three stars from Pete Wells in The Times last month.) “We bought the site,” Mr. Lowry said, “and our responsibility is to use the site intelligently.” Ms. Tsien said she could not recall another example of such a high-profile architectural project being demolished so soon after it was built. “Museums have opened and closed and buildings have shifted,” she said, “but I don’t know about being torn down.”

Big 3 eyeing Hudson Yards



Quote:
Time Warner, Citibank and Ralph Lauren Polo could be the next big companies to move to mammoth new Hudson Yards on the Far West Side. All three have had talks with Hudson Yards developer Related Cos. about taking space in the 26-acre site’s second planned skyscraper, sources said.

Related chief Stephen Ross is furiously courting tenants for the project’s North Tower after inking deals yesterday with three major companies for the South Tower — Coach Inc., L’Oréal and tech firm SAP. They will occupy 80 percent of the 47-story building, scheduled to open in 2015. The North Tower will be much bigger — 80 stories and 1,337 feet tall, which is nearly as tall as 1 World Trade Center not including its spire. The South Tower has started construction at 10th Avenue and 31st Street on Hudson Yards’ eastern edge. The North Tower will go up at 10th and 33rd Street once tenants are signed up.

The second cloudbuster would firmly establish Related’s Hudson Yards — to be built above the vast open rail yard between 10th and 12th avenues — as the city’s hottest commercial-development district. It would also cement Mayor Bloomberg’s legacy for kick-starting the birth of a vast new neighborhood on Manhattan’s Far West Side, a dream that started with his failed quest to build an Olympics stadium.

Related’s talks with possible tenants for the North Tower were in the earliest stages. At least one, Citibank, recently seemed to have dropped the idea and was looking elsewhere, sources said. But, “The finalized deals with Coach and the other tenants at the South Tower change everything,” a real-estate insider said. “Even though everyone knew they were happening, the real-estate mind knows a deal isn’t closed until it closes. The South Tower deals swept away the last bit of uncertainty about Hudson Yards. Related has momentum now.”

The plan for Coach to move its headquarters there was first heralded by Mayor Bloomberg and others at a photo-op on Nov. 1, 2011.

Seen & Heard: Huge New Development on Hudson


275 Hudson

Quote:
April 11 2013

Pretty sure you’ll have heard this here first: I learned from a reliable source that 275 Hudson—the long, squat, brick building below Spring, where Ace Gallery and Skylight Studio were, is coming down. The new building will be a joint venture between Related and Ponte Equities, which are also teaming up on the behemoth at 460 Washington. There’s nothing (that I could find) on the Department of Buildings website yet, and I didn’t try calling either Ponte or Related, because neither is known for talking.

The current look of the building if I'm not mistaken:

Permits Granted For 81 Fleet Place In Brooklyn



Quote:
Expect construction soon at 81 Fleet Place, right off Myrtle Avenue, the second build of billionaire John Catsimatidis’ four promised buildings on Myrtle between Ashland Place and Flatbush Avenue. The Department of Buildings just issued a new building permit for a fifteen-story mixed-use building. When a rendering surfaced last fall, the DOB had disapproved the first round of building plans. This 205-unit build will hold ground-floor retail space and studio, one- and two-bedroom units. There will also be a landscaped terrace on the third floor. Construction is expected to last until next year.
