Catholic School Cuts Sweet Deal For Space At Pricey 35XV



Quote:
For Alchemy Properties and Xavier High School, a deal ruined by the market collapse has led to mutually beneficial collaboration—Alchemy is building 35XV, its most expensive condo project to date, and Xavier is getting a new school that will comfortably fit its entire student body. In 2008, Xavier, located on West 16th Street, planned to sell its air rights to the buyer of a union hall next to its campus in order to beef up its endowment. Tishman Hotel & Realty was set to build a hotel and condo (which really angered the neighbors), but that deal fell apart when the market went south. When the hall returned to the market in 2010, Xaiver's board decided that if they were going to sell their air rights, they wanted more than just money.

So, according to the Journal, Xavier partnered with Alchemy, a developer the school was quite familiar with, as Alchemy had put up a condo across the street. Alchemy bought the school's air rights for $13.7 million, and they agreed to let Xavier build a new, larger school on the site of union hall, which the developer bought for $16.6 million
.

Striated Structure to Replace UES Tenement on Third Avenue?


http://observer.com/2013/04/oda-arch...ide-rendering/

Quote:
Some architecture firms can be very secretive, but ODA Architecture is not one of them. In fact, the Observer notes that ODA founder Eran Chen seems to have a problem with oversharing. Last month, he posted a rendering of a building in Long Island City before he should have, and yesterday, he did it again, this time with a building on Third Avenue at 82nd Street. After seeing the rendering on Facebook, the Observer reached out to the firm, only to be told that the image was not supposed to be shared. Oops! The rendering shows 1444 Third Avenue, a site that is currently occupied by a four story, nine unit tenement that sold last summer to DRK Third Avenue LLC for $7.5 million. It's zoned for 26,000-square-feet, so we may very well see the above building.

"Grittier Chelsea Market" May Land In Gritty Bushwick


Maybe baby...

Quote:
Since December, word has been circulating about Bushwick's planned retail market that will eat an entire block bound by Bogart Street, Harrison Place, Morgan Avenue, and Ingram Street. The Massey Knakal broker marketing the property has described it as a "grittier Chelsea Market." Now, said broker has added the above rendering to the mix, showing what this magical mall could be—a jazzed up warehouse with an unidentified tower plopped on top. Bushwick Daily spotted the marketing flyer, which notes that the ground floor offers 80,000-square-feet and an addition could add the same amount.

The site is currently occupied by a single-story warehouse and located in an M1-2 manufacturing zone, which allows for hotels and for the construction of a tower like the one pictured in the rendering. However, the rendering is not representative of what the site will be. The broker is just trying to put ideas in people's heads.

That would be awesome for Bushwick. I hope it doesn't get killed by NIMBYs.

Edit: I just looked at where this is located and its a pretty industrial area. So maybe no NIMBYs...

Staten Island Wheel To Be Focus Of meeting



Quote:
STATEN ISLAND—The Trespa Design Center is hosting a presentation about the planned 625-foot-tall Staten Island observation wheel, aka the New York Wheel, aka the largest ferris wheel in the world. Wheel developer Richard Marin will be there, along with a few other people involved in the project. This will be the first public presentation about the project, which really truly looks like it will come to fruition. The wheel will be joined by "a world-class sustainable venue emphasizing the visual history of New York, advanced technology, and state-of-the-art sustainability elements." The event is at 6 p.m. on May 21.

Midtown East's Possible Future: Skyscrapers Blocking Out The Chrysler Building
http://gothamist.com/2013/04/19/midt...sc.php#photo-4

"Last year, the Bloomberg administration unveiled a proposal to rezone Midtown East around Grand Central Terminal to build much bigger skyscrapers, sometimes up to 60% bigger. And without the lengthy approval process.

If passed—the city's City Planning Commission will decide whether to certify the plan on Monday, April 22—it could mean buildings as big as the Empire State Building added to the already bustling area. The city would also charge builders more to build higher buildings, and the money would go to infrastructure improvements. "

Interesting Article about the whole Hudson Yards project.

Way Out West:
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/21/re...rORdonbupuLanw

So What's Being Built

Developers are not only coming on strong, they're thinking as big as the rezoning will allow.

Extell, like some of its competitors, controls several parcels in the area. Its first apartment building will be 555 10th Avenue, a 50-story rental at West 41st Street with 600 units, a pair of swimming pools and a two-lane bowling alley, said Gary Barnett, Extell’s chief executive. Foundations were poured in March; 2016 is the expected completion date.

Units will rent for around $100 a square foot, which is on par with 42nd Street properties like MiMA, from the Related Companies, Mr. Barnett said.

Like other developers, Extell also has commercial projects in the area, including One Hudson Yards, a 56-story office building planned for 11th Avenue and 33rd Street. But the leasing market is soft, making an anchor tenant difficult to find, so that project is on hold for now, Mr. Barnett said.

Extell is also planning apartments on a block-through site between 9th and 10th Avenues on 37th Street. Possibly to include rentals and condos, it probably won’t start construction for another year.

“It’s like a chicken-and-egg situation,” Mr. Barnett said. “You’ve got to get the tenants to build the neighborhood, and you’ve got to build the neighborhood to get the tenants.”

Since the fall, Brookfield Office Properties has been building at 425 West 31st Street, the first leg of Manhattan West, a 5.4-million-square-foot mixed-use project on a two-block site on Ninth Avenue between 31st and 33rd Streets.

In addition to office space, Manhattan West will have a 57-story tower with 900 rental units, though Brookfield has configured the building with two elevator banks in case it decides to spin some of those units off as condos, said Philip Wharton, the company’s senior vice president for development.

Condos are also envisioned for 3 Hudson Boulevard, a 72-story office tower by the Moinian Group at 11th Avenue and 34th Street. In an unusual combination for New York (allowed by the area’s zoning), the 150 condos will be under the same roof as offices; an anchor office tenant is still wanting. “I’m keeping this flexible,” said Joseph Moinian, the firm’s chief executive.

Moinian has revived a dormant project at 605 West 42nd Street, a rental that is to have 1,191 units, including studios and apartments with one, two and three bedrooms. Foundations were poured in February for the $500 million project, which is expected to open in 2015, said Mr. Moinian, who also built the Atelier Condos next door.

So eager are some developers to tap the Hudson Yards housing market that they are pressing City Hall to amend zoning to allow more apartments. Silverstein Properties, owner of a 90,000-square-foot site on 11th Avenue and 41st Street that once contained a Mercedes dealership, wants to build more housing there than is now permitted, according to industry sources.

And that’s not even counting the Related Companies, which along with Oxford Properties Group controls the 26 acres of the old rail yards, a six-block site that in many ways has become a symbol of the area. In 2005, a proposal to build a football stadium for the Jets on a platform over the yard was defeated.

Related and Oxford will spend $15 billion for the mixed-use project, to rise mostly over the rail yards, which runs from 10th to 12th Avenue between 30th and 33rd Streets. Much of the early focus will be on commercial development. The first piece will be a 46-story tower; tenants are to include Coach, L’Oreal USA and SAP, the software company.

Related’s residential goal, 5,000 apartments across eight buildings, will mostly be on the site’s western half, which won’t be fully developed for years. But Related and Oxford are supposed to break ground in 2014 on their first residence, a 75-story tower at 500 West 31st Street. Designed by the architecture firm Diller, Scofidio + Renfro, it will be half condo and half rental, according to Related, which in 2008 was selected to develop the site by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

At 10th Avenue, Related will also soon complete 500 West 30th Street, a 386-unit rental designed by Robert A. M. Stern. Technically just outside the neighborhood, it will still be a notable presence. In 2014, construction will start on another of Related’s 10th Avenue rentals, at 530 West 30th Street; it is to have 225 apartments.

--- this project is so just so massive. The part that got my attention is the Girasole is planned for 72 stories vs. 66 stories posted in the header thread for the Girasol! My guesstimate is that this should easily be over 1,200 ft tall.

Minor correction: sales will begin this summer on 11 North Moore. They are currently working on the foundation of this building. I'm sure it will turn out very nice given the wealth of Tribeca. 56 Leonard is very nearby.

CityPoint Brooklyn Phase Two underway: 4.22.13



Quote:
Today we bring you the first of a monthly photo series documenting the huge, multi-year construction project under way at City Point. When completed, the mixed-use development will include more than 1.8 million square feet of retail, entertainment, food, office and residential space on the corner of Flatbush Avenue and Fulton Street. The first phase of the project, located at 1 DeKalb Avenue, opened this fall with an A/X Armani Exchange store. Construction on Phase Two started last year and should wrap in the fall of 2015. (No timeline has been set yet for Phase Three.) Phase Two consists of a 670,000-square-foot retail center — it will be Brooklyn’s largest — under two residential towers. Together the two towers will have 690 units, 125 of which will be affordable apartments. Right now workers are digging down two levels below grade to pour the foundation on the 90,000 square foot site. They are moving from south to north, and as excavation is completed on one part, concrete work follows.

Too bad the architecture couldn't have been as cool as their address font. Good to see that hole filled though... I guess.
