A new building is underway at 551 West 21st Street (at the West Side Highway). The existing buildings on site have recently been demolished and excavation is underway. The building has received DOB approval and will likely be going vertical by the end of the year. Although not exciting in shape, I'm guessing this will be a very high end building given the neighborhood.

Screenshots from the DOB zoning documents:

Not long ago, that area was a huge slum. Now, it's super-posh.

Yeah it also used to be mostly vacant and underused industrial properties. Now its booming with construction. Speaking of, just down the street...

Demo is nearly complete at 500 West 21st Street. DOB documents reveal that a 8-story residential building will rise here however no renderings have been released. The property is being developed by Sherwood Equities who own several properties up and down the west side of Manhattan.

The amount of development in NY is insane. It truly is a skyscraper lover's paradise. Even in the worst of times, there is always something going on. What has been proposed and started over the last couple of months is amazing.

3 Hudson Boulevard's Sky Club, Possible Condos Revealed




Quote:
We knew that the 1,000-foot skyscraper called 3 Hudson Boulevard, planned for Eleventh Avenue between 34th and 35th streets, was going to be glassy, twisty, and super-dee-duper green. After an announcement today, we've got more renderings (!), plus we know it'll cost $800-900 million to build, that commercial tenants on the lower floors will be asked to pay $85/square foot to lease the space, that six-story high LED screens on two sides will flash occupants' branding or art installations at the street level, and that the roof will hold a two-floor "sky club" complete with swimming pool, greenery and foliage, terraces, event spaces, meeting rooms, and areas for dining, drinking, and lounging. Most importantly (to us at least), the Moinian Group's 3 Hudson Boulevard could pose a bit of friendly competition to big-name sky-high residential properties like One57 and 432 Park—because condos are slated to occupy 300,000 square feet on floors 49 through 63, with a dedicated elevator bank and other amenities and unit sizes TBD. Be warned: if an eager company is willing to plunk down a bunch of dough for more office space, then the condos might not happen.

It's all designed by Dan Kaplan of FXFOWLE, the architecture firm behind West 15th Street's 35XV, which is also glassy and tapered and full of condos... but quite a bit shorter. The building is aiming for a LEED Platinum certification, the highest rating in the buzzing orbit of green construction. Construction is estimated to start late next year or in 2015, with a move-in date of 2017.

First Look At Soho's Car Wash-Replacing Condo Tower



http://www.dnainfo.com/new-york/2013...w_modal_slot_1

Quote:
Some black and white renderings of the 18-story, 27-unit condo building planned for the northeast corner of Sixth Avenue and Broome Street have made their way online, and reveal a wedge-shaped building—with a large clock at the top of the facade—towering over its surroundings, as well as four townhouses.

Calatrava Front-Runner In Bid To Rebuild St. Nicholas Church At WTC Site: Report



Quote:
Now, this couldn’t possibly be true — could it?

According to the Greek-American newspaper, The National Herald, architect Santiago Calatrava is “reportedly the leading candidate” to design the new Church of St. Nicholas just south of the World Trade Center.

That’s right, the same Calatrava whose cyclopean WTC Transportation Hub is seven years late, more than $2 billion over budget and has tied other site construction into knots.

The original St. Nicholas was destroyed on 9/11.

Ever since, its replacement on Port Authority-owned land — exactly where it would go and how big it would be — has been a political hot potato tossed among three different governors, several Port Authority chiefs and the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese.

The archdiocese’s Father Mark Arey told us: “Mr. Calatrava has certainly been among the 12 or 13 architects who were pre-selected to offer designs.

Bloomberg Proposes $20 Billion 'Battery Park City' For Manhattan's East River Waterfront



Quote:
Mayor Michael Bloomberg today proposed a Battery Park City-like development on Manhattan's East Side to protect lower Manhattan from the next superstorm.

"Battery Park City would have protected inland areas, including the World Trade Center site, had floodwaters not been able to penetrate low lying coastline both to the north and the south," said Bloomberg today, during his presentation of "A Stronger, More Resilient New York," his compendium of proposals for how best to prepare New York for future extreme weather events.

Battery Park City, like much of lower Manhattan, was built on landfill. Unlike much of lower Manhattan, it was built to withstand flooding. "We can achieve the same thing on the East Side of lower Manhattan," he said. "We can built it out, raise it above the flood level, and develop it. Call it Seaport City. Yes, it would be expensive to build. But over time it could prove to be a great investment, just as Battery Park City has proven to be."

Bloomberg said housing and office space could be built there, capitalizing on high demand for both. "It's an ambitious idea, yes," he said. "But so was Battery Park City."

Whitney Museum Nabe Getting $$$ Condos, Retail


A rendering of 33 East 74th Street

Quote:
Health care entrepreneur Daniel Straus is turning his hand to development, remaking six historic brownstones on the Upper East Side into a boutique mixed-use property where condominium units will start at $13 million, The Real Deal has learned.

A part-time philanthropist and CEO of a company that operates a network of nursing and assisted living facilities, Straus has previously owned and managed residential and commercial buildings in the city.

His affiliate company, an LLC dubbed JZS Madison, reportedly purchased the brownstones, on East 74th Street and Madison Avenue, for $95 million in 2010 from the Whitney Museum, which had acquired them over several decades to expand its footprint.

The investor will transform the properties into 10 three- to five-bedroom residences of between 4,000 and 10,000 square feet, officials involved with the project told The Real Deal today. The units at the development, at 33 East 74th Street, are set to hit the market this fall, they said. Douglas Elliman Development Marketing will head up sales.

Construction has already begun on the project, which is next to the the Whitney’s Marcel Breuer building, soon to become part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Architecture firm Beyer Blinder Belle is heading up the design of the properties, which will maintain their historic facades. The units’ interiors will be designed by Champalimaud, a firm best known for designing the Dorchester Hotel in London and New York hotels like the Carlyle, the Pierre and the Waldorf Astoria.

Re: 100 Vandam Street & 576 Broome street)

Billionaire Greene Foraying Into Manhattan Market
http://commercialobserver.com/2013/0...hattan-market/

Quote:
The billionaire is planning a 75-unit, 140,000-square-foot condo project at 100 Vandam Street in the Hudson Square area; and the condo conversion of a six-story building at 576 Broome Street
Quote:
He purchased 92 and 100 Vandam for nearly $49 million late last year, city records show. The properties fall in the 50-acre area of the Hudson Square rezoning, which allows for more residential development, and the roughly 66,000 square feet of combined air rights on the properties make the 140,000-square-foot development possible.

It's art deco, as well.

If Santiago Calatrava will design the church, it will match the hub well! It'll also let in a lot of light.

Ismael Leyva Architects’ design fits 24 residences into a 292-foot tower on the narrow site. The upper 11 floors contain full-floor units, with duplexes on the 7th and 8th floors. Every unit will feature windows on Park as well as Murray. The 53,000-square-foot project also includes a double height lobby, gym, residents’ lounges, and ample terraces. “Our goal with the Tribeca Royale was to create a state-of-the-art residential building that showcases unique urban design given the constraints of the site, while efficiently maximizing space,” said Ismael Leyva in a statement. “This design offers unique residences in a very desirable downtown location”
