One block east on 20th Street, the Chelsea Seminary development is taking shape. This will be new high end luxury condos.

Cladding is underway on 151 West 21st Street. Looks pretty nice, classy but not flashy. Hard to tell but looks like a grayish slate is being used and then brick on the side walls.

I passed 31 West 15th Street (35XV) today, it looks like they are just starting on the tower portion. There was an army of concrete trucks on site and they were lifting buckets to what appears the beginning of a set back tower.

If you look close in the photo below, I think you can just barely make out the chamfered corner of the tower. Looks to be only one or two floors up.

They've begun to peel the scaffolding off the base of the Walker Tower on West 18th Street. Looks interesting, quite art deco-y. The first few floors of this building are to remain a Verizon switching station I believe.

Demolition of the former St. Lukes Hospital in the Village is well underway. This block will be redeveloped to contain approximately 400 to 500 residential units.

With all that construction going on near the highline, pretty soon there'll be no views. A victim of its own success.

DS+R's Columbia Business School Renderings Are Out:



Quote:
MORNINGSIDE HEIGHTS—Last week, Columbia's Manhattanville business school got a $100 million boost from billionaire Ronald Perelman, and with that announcement came new renderings of the two buildings. Like the medical center, they are designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro and feature similar zig-zagging cutaway facades. They will provide a combined 450,000-square-feet of space, some of which will be filled with those same collaborative gathering spaces we heard about before.

Curbed is reporting that a new Pace University Dorm at 33 Beekman Street is in the early stages of construction right across the street from NY by Gehry. This was at one point going to be a hideous Gene Kaufman Hotel. From what I can tell this new design isn't bad, but isn't great either.

A new hotel is under construction at 180 Orchard Street in the booming Lower East Side. This project was born right before the crash, stalled and has recently been reactivated.

More details on 508 West 24th Street by the Highline:

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/19/re...town.html?_r=0

A 10-story condominium that recently broke ground and is expected to be completed in June 2014, 14 of the 15 units will be three-bedrooms. “These are all family-sized apartments because there is a real need in the marketplace,” said Cary Tamarkin, the design architect and developer of the project. The building, between 10th and 11th Avenues, will have two apartments per floor, with each unit featuring views of the High Line, which is just 15 feet away.

The building will have ribbons of architectural concrete between rows of oversize casement windows. The developer chose concrete despite its reputation for being difficult to work with. “It reveals the hand of the maker,” Mr. Tamarkin said, “so you have to get great artisans and the right recipe, with attention to detail to the point that every tie hole and joint is thought about.

“The building sits between two metal buildings that do their best to dance and curve,” he added, “and so we wanted this to be a concrete anchor that is more geometric in shape.” And, thinking far ahead, “in 500 years, people walking by it will see a substantial ruin.”

The architect-cum-developer also plans to integrate into the side of the building a modernist clock that will stretch five feet in diameter, to serve as decoration for the pedestrians walking by on the High Line. “It is an effort to give back to the urban fabric and the three million who will pass by the building on a yearly basis,” Mr. Tamarkin said.

The form references the mid-20th century International Style, but the windows reference the windows of the old 20s warehouses of NYC. A very NY building, if you ask me!
