Who Knew?

Midtown Marriott Will Be The Western Hemisphere's Tallest Hotel



Quote:
Take a good long look at the photo above. That building, now making rapid progress up toward the skyline, will be the tallest hotel in the western hemisphere once it opens, which it is scheduled to do by December. (It's progressing so rapidly, in fact, that the construction date was just moved up for the third time, according to reps.) The building will also be a Marriott Hotel—the Central Park Marriott, to be precise, at 54th Street and Broadway. The $200 million building will actually contain two hotels, a Courtyard by Marriott (378 rooms) and an extended-stay Residence Inn (639 rooms). Two more fun facts about the 753-foot building: 1) it will be the world's tallest Marriott, and 2) it will have the highest floor-to-area ratio (30 to one) of any NYC building ever.

On 29 April 2013, Curbed posted a rendering of the latest version of 5 Franklin Place. It looks nice.

A new facility that will be highly visible:

New Palliative Care Facility Proposed for Lower East Side



Quote:
Despite the imminent riverside gold rush at the hands of Extell (vis-a-vis Pathmark) and discussion of NYCHA infill, a much different development could be on the way. A polar opposite, if you will. On Wednesday evening, the Land Use subcommittee of Community Board 3 will hear the case [PDF] for construction of a 183,700 square-foot palliative care facility on South Street that acts as an enhanced assisted living residence for older adults.

There’s some back history with this particular location, though. HealthCare Chaplaincy seeks to modify the existing Large Scale Residential Development (“LSRD”) that was originally approved by the city back in May of 1972. The land targeted is a large chunk of parcel 5 of the since-expired Two Bridges Urban Renewal Area, which currently functions as parking lot.

If ultimately approved, the healthcare facility will reach 206 feet (roughly 18 stories), and boast 120 assisted living units, a geriatric outpatient medical practice, chapel, and space for a non-profit commercial tenant. Most of the displaced parking spaces would be redistributed to an on-site garage and a newly created lot alongside the perimeter, plus the addition of 45 new spots. Furthermore, the South Street frontage would be lined with landscaping. It’s also important to note that the facility will not affect Rutgers Park.

That looks nice. I like "the vaj" at the bottom.

It's also nice that it obstructs all of the rent regulated council flats behind it.

Times Square Garage Giving Way To 30 Story Hampton Inn


Drivers soon to be inconvenienced...with hospitality!

Quote:
MIDTOWN — Parking garages are making way for a pair of new international chain hotels in Times Square — and both part of a growing number of hotels in the Great White Way.

citizenM, a quirky, "affordable luxury" destination "for mobile travelers" that features customizable LED lighting and and cylindrical, Jetsons-style shower stalls is expected to open in October on West 50th Street, the chain's website says. The building will feature 230 rooms across 21 floors and marks citizenM's first foray into the United States.

The hotel chain, which did not return calls and emails for comment, opened hotels in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands, and it plans to open a second New York outpost in the Bowery some time next year.

Nine blocks south, a 30-story, 300-room Hampton Inn is also starting to rise above the Great White Way, at 220 W. 41st St. Department of Buildings documents show.

The chain, part of Hilton, also did not respond to requests for comment. Signs posted at the construction site state that the hotel is expected to open in December 2014.

Old Mars Bar Building Tenants Finally Get $10 Apartments



Quote:
For as heartbreaking as it was to watch the iconic East Village dive Mars Bar be replaced by a shiny 12-story apartment building, the relationship between the old-timer tenants and new developer has been surprisingly without drama. Two years ago, a deal was made to allow the longtime tenants of the old building to purchase units in the new development for just $10, and developer BFC Partners has kept its promise. The Journal reports that the East Village lifers are set to move into their new digs at Jupiter 21, which, by the way, got its name because "Jupiter follows Mars" in the order of the planets (there will also be a model of Jupiter hanging in the lobby). The apartments have walnut floors, lots of sunlight, built-in washer/dryers, and views of Second Avenue. There's also a serenity garden, rooftop terrace, and wet bar.

The demise of the Mars Bar building didn't come because a developer bought it with plans to knock it down. Instead, the tenants of the building wanted to buy it themselves, and they brought in Donald Capoccia, a principal of BFC Partners, in the early 2000s to help them do that. The plan was to renovated the building, build on top of it, or replace it. Next door, similar plans were in motion. Both projects moved slowly, but then the city created the special zoning rules that allow for bigger buildings if they include affordable housing, so a new building was now doable.

Capoccia bought the air rights to the place next door, made the $10 deal with the tenants, knocked everything down, and that's how a beloved NYC establishment was replaced by a luxury building where apartments will rent for $3,000 to $10,000/month without a single lawsuit being slung. Welcome to the neighborhood, Jupiter.

[...]
Mars Bar was a classic Lower East Side dive bar that harkened back to the days of the East Village Scene in the early '80s.

Former AIG Building Getting New Life



Quote:
NEW YORK CITY-The former headquarter offices of AIG are about to get a new life—as apartments.

Law firm Hunton & Williams LLP announced Monday it has advised EBNB 70 Pine Owner LLC—a joint venture among affiliates of Eastbridge Sarl, Rose Associates and AG Insurance NV/SA—in connection with a $300 million construction loan for 70 Pine Street, the former headquarters of AIG. The financing closed on Friday, Carl Schwartz, chair of Hunton’s New York real estate practice, tells GlobeSt.com. Previously, the building was sold to local development firm Youngwoo & Associates and Korea-based Kumho Investment Bank.

EBNB took title to the building in December, 2011, Andrew Singer, chairman and CEO, Singer & Bassuk Organization, who was one of two construction loan brokers on the deal, tells GlobeSt.com. The venture is in the process of converting the office tower into apartments. That incarnation of the building is slated for delivery in 2014 or 2015, Schwartz says.

The loan is a five-year deal and was issued by three banks: Bank of New York, JP Morgan and M&T Bank, according to Singer.

The Woolworth conversion [upper 30 floors] is presently gathering momentum. Alchemy expects to launch sales next year.

Advocates fear Bushwick Inlet Park will go private, i.e. big tower

Quote:
Williamsburg park lovers are worried that the city will let apartments rise up in the planned Bushwick Inlet Park because of the glacial pace it is taking to fund the greenspace.

Property values have skyrocketed in the area during the eight years since the city approved a controversial rezoning of the Williamsburg waterfront, and six riverside properties along Kent Avenue north of East River State Park that the city planned to purchase for $12 million and turn into parks are worth at least eight times that price. The city now says it does not have the money to pay for the land, and that has park advocates fearful that a Brooklyn Bridge Park-style public-private partnership, which could include housing on the site, is in the works.

“I’ll be shocked if we get this park without a big tower sitting in the middle of it,” said Community Board 1 member Ryan Kuonen. “That’s the only model the city seems to recognize as a viable way to build park space.”
Let's hope so! We'll call it the F*ck NIMBYS Tower! (tower developer to pay for improvements to rest of park )

NIMBY Town

Task Force Rejects CUNY-MSK Plan, Citing Traffic and Open Space Concerns



Quote:
UPPER EAST SIDE — A task force has struck down the controversial zoning changes that would have made possible the development of a 1-million square-foot medical center and college complex.

As they have in the past, members of Community Board 8 demanded that developers for the City University of New York and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, which is seeking to build as big as they'd like and secure more parking spots, create a publicly accessible open area adjacent to the site. They also drummed up concerns about cars and trucks, citing skepticism that computer models accurately portrayed potential traffic impact.

"All of the institutions seem to be a little more willing to accommodate the neighborhood," said CB8 member Teri Slater at a meeting Tuesday night. "Bottom line is, this community wants something in exchange just like every other neighborhood.

"We want to be the West Side where you live," she said to one of the developers. "We're tired of the conditions in this area."

The project must still pass through another CB8 committee and the full board. Though their recommendations are not binding, they will be considered by city planners, who will ultimately decide on the proposed zoning change.

Anne Locke, an environmental analyst working on the project, later said that CUNY-MSK did want to address open space concerns by revamping Andrew Haswell Green Park in exchange for zoning changes — but that the task force rejected the idea, too.

Other residents voiced concern about the increase in traffic to the area — estimated to be 1,680 cars over a 24-hour period — which is already home to several large medical institutions.

Hunters Point South: City Seeks Developer For 1,000 Affordable Apts.



Quote:
Request for proposals for Phase 2 of the vast Hunter's Point South middle-class housing project on the Long Island City, Queens, waterfront comes as work for initial phase is just beginning.

May 1, 2013 1:27 p.m.

The Bloomberg administration is seeking a developer for the second phase of the vast Hunter's Point South middle-class housing project on the Queens waterfront. Given the location, the city is insisting all interested parties take the altered expectations of a post-Sandy world into consideration.

The call for developers on Tuesday from the city Department of Housing Preservation and Development comes just as work for the initial phase of the project is getting underway. The second phase will be built along the East River between Borden and 54th avenues at the southern tip of Long Island City. The request for proposals calls for 1,000 new apartments, at least half of which must be set aside for middle- and moderate-income families.

City housing commissioner Mathew Wambua noted that people had doubted the city could create a middle-class neighborhood of 5,000 apartments, especially in the middle of a recession.

"The RFP for Phase 2 is proof positive that we have been able to continue to build on our commitment to create a haven of affordability in the Hunter's Point neighborhood for New York's hard working families," Mr. Wambua said in a release.

The first phase attracted a number of the city's top developers, including Douglaston Development, the Durst Organization, Jonathan Rose Cos. and AvalonBay. Ultimately, the Related Cos., in partnership with Monadnock Development and Phipps Houses, won the right to build 925 units and a new school and retail spaces.

The second phase is located on an 110,000-square-foot site in the middle of the public land, immediately south of Related's plots. In addition to the apartments, it calls for 28,000 square feet of new retail and encourages, though does not require, the inclusion of a ferry dock in the plans.

Chelsea Park complex to pump iron in basement


http://streeteasy.com/nyc/building/chelsea-park

Quote:
A Chelsea apartment building is bulking up. For the good of its tenants’ health and its own bottom line, Chelsea Park, the new residential complex at 260 W. 26th St., between Seventh and Eighth avenues, has inked a 15-year lease with Blink Fitness for a new outpost in the building’s basement.

The 15,500-square-foot gym will have an entrance on Eighth Avenue, which will lead downstairs to the fitness center. It is scheduled to open by the end of 2014. The asking rent was $55 per square foot.

The space was originally intended to be a garage for the building, said Winick Realty Group's Alexander Hill, who represented building owner Chelsea W26. Blink Fitness was represented by Peter Levine of Charter Realty and Development.

Blink Fitness is a growing, Equinox-owned chain of affordable gyms. The Chelsea outpost will be its 14th in the city.
