Work may begin soon at 245 West 14th Street. A formerly stalled residential site near the Meatpacking district. New fencing was recently put up and I see an excavator is now on site. According to THIS article in the Real Deal the site was purchased last fall by the same developers building a residential building on 21st Street in Chelsea.

Site of 551 10th Avenue has been cleared and looks like construction is eminent. Extell is planning a 550 ft, 52-story residential (rental) tower here on this site and plans to break ground within the year.

Signs are up and Mercedes has moved their dealership at 514 11th Avenue. Silverstein is planning a 60+ story residential (rental) tower on this site. No word on the start date.

An excavator has been on site at 610 Lexington Avenue since March, however (unfortunately) there hasn't been much progress. Word is that the building will house a Shangri-La Hotel and condos.

A 22 story residential tower is underway at 240 Manhattan Avenue near Columbia University in Harlem. The building will top out at 22 stories, and likely pretty prominent for its location.

Columbia Manhattanville expansion update. The first building is well out of the ground now. The blocks behind will be built up over the next decade into a large new campus. This may actually be one of the biggest projects in the city right now.

Got a closer look at the Fordham University Tower today. It looks like it still hasn't topped out yet, they are continuing to pour floors past the setback.

Bonus shot: Here is the site directly to the south of the residential tower going up. This will be the site of the second residential tower going up. It will be slightly shorter than its northern neighbor, which I believe will top out around 600 ft tall. Was hoping to see some construction activity, but I guess its slightly premature.

Looks like they're beginning to make progress on the foundation of the first tower at the Riverside South Development. I would guess they'll be pouring concrete within the next month or so.

Also looks like they're demolishing the remaining structures on the site.

40 Riverside Boulevard is the last building in the development formerly known as "Trump Place" along Riverside Drive in the 60s. This tower will be much glassier than it neighbors and will rise 33 floors. The design is pretty forgettable, but notable, in that it is a separate project from the Riverside Development South.

Work is progressing on the foundation at 625 West 57th Street. Hard to tell from this vantage (and my sub-par camera), but the hole for this building is actually pretty deep. You can kind of catch a glimpse of the hole beyond the barrier.

Rendering of whats to come (this building is so exciting!):

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.
Work continues on 508 West 24th Street, should be going vertical by the end of the summer:

Demo work continues on Eleventh Avenue between 20th and 21st Streets. No renderings have been released yet for this project, but it is a very large site, so I'm sure it will be significant.

I peeked through the fence and looks like 15 Renwick Street is also in the excavation stage:

Not sure what's happening at the site across the Renwick Street (at the corner of Canal), it looks like a large site that has been cleared. Anyone know anything about this site?

Finally, a glimpse of the recently-completed residential filler at Greenwich and Canal which I think turned out quite nice:

According to Curbed, it sounds like the 21 story sliver at 19 Park Avenue is finally under construction.

19 Park Place Condo Gets Spiffier Name: "Tribeca Royale"


http://www.ilarch.com/project.php?id=5

Quote:
The condominium development at 19 Park Place has its official moniker: Tribeca Royale, Curbed reported. The project, which is designed by architect Ismael Levya, is on track for 2014 completion.

Work at the site has been going on for the past year, as previously reported. ABN Realty is developing the building, which will be 25 feet wide and 21 stories high. The building will contain 24 units — 11 of them full-floor homes on the higher levels. The units located toward the back of the building will have their own terrace spaces, and others will come as duplexes.

GM Building Sale Raises The Roof On Values

40% stake sold for $1.4 bln.



Quote:
The families of Chinese real estate developer Zhang Xin and Brazilian banking magnate Moise Safra paid $1.4 billion for a 40 percent stake in the General Motors building, the Wall Street Journal reported. This values the building at 767 Fifth Avenue at roughly $3.4 billion, making it the country’s most valuable office property.

Relatives of Zhang – who is the founder and chief executive officer of Beijing megadeveloper Soho China – and the Safra family’s New York-based investment arm M. Safra & Co. bought the stake in the 50-story, 2 million-square-foot property through an entity called Sungate Trust, a source familiar with the matter told Bloomberg News.

The sellers were Goldman Sachs Group s U.S. Real Estate Opportunities Fund, which invests on behalf of the sovereign wealth funds of Kuwait and Qatar; and Dubai-based private equity firm Meraas Capital, the source told Bloomberg News. The sale closed May 31, the source added.

The building – which takes up a full block between Fifth and Madison Avenues and 58th and 59th Street — houses an Apple store at street level. The deal — which follows Crown Acquisitions and Highgate Holdings’ $1.3 billion purchase of 650 Madison Avenue from the Carlyle Group — comes at a time when investors looking for yield have been paying top dollar for high-end office properties, causing values to escalate faster than rents and occupancy.

Check Out the First Interior Renderings of 432 Park Avenue



Quote:
The first exterior renderings for 432 Park Avenue showed the Rafael Vinoly-designed superscraper towering over its Midtown neighbors. No surprise there—the boxy structure will be the western hemisphere's tallest residential building when it's finished. And the first interior renderings take full advantage of those views. BuzzBuzzHome has a glimpse at two of those renderings; we dug up a third, which may be found below. (Floorplans, for reference, may be reviewed here.) As of March, prices on available units ranged from $20.25 million to $78 million; a penthouse is already in contract for $95 million.
