I go to school at Columbia and will be happy to periodically take pictures of the new Columbia University Medical Center building being constructed at Haven Avenue between 171st and 172nd streets that will be home to high-tech class facilities for all four CUMC colleges as well as the biomedical program within Columbia University’s college of art and science.

Digging has started:











It will be 14 stories:

I'm enjoying the recent construction boom in New York - Torre Verre has to be my favourite, with Hudson Yards and Leonard Street being my least!

50 West St. To Go Up Mainly As Condos



Quote:
Developer Francis Greenburger of Time Equities is made of patience. He has owned land at 50 West Street since 1983, and has held on to plans for the site through economic turmoil that took down many other developers. His patience is about to be rewarded. The Journal reports that Greenburger has finally received financing for his planned 50 West tower, designed by architect Helmut Jahn. The financing consists of a $400 million debt and equity deal. Construction will start this fall, and the building should actually exist as part of the skyline by sometime in 2016.

The building that's been planned for years was for a 65-story hotel-condo tower. Now the plan is for a 63-story tower minus that proposed hotel. Instead, the building will be mostly condos, and will also include retail, a restaurant, one floor of office space, and the usual luxury condo amenities—and "a city walkway traversing West Street will weave itself into the building's courtyard," the Journal explains.
Some real questions about the height which may exceed 800 ft. Going from hotel to condo means higher ceilings and potentially a height increase...

Odd that he dumped this site. He had assembled approximately 1m sq ft here plus if the rezoning gets approved this site has potential of gigantic proportions.
He is probably raising money for 225 W 57th.

I love the impact the High Line has had on the city. And to think I was there the day it opened

I hope they keep the western façade of the building in cast iron shown in the 2nd photo. Would be cool.

That facade will remain. In the aerial diagram, you'll notice its not on this property, but in fact the building next door.

There's a condo planned for right across the street from that as well. In the rendering below the site for the building Vertical Gotham posted is in the triangular lot to the left of the Hollister signage, with the new building to the upper left of that.

Should be a nice pair, and nice to see them go up at about the same time.

This is a great improvement. I'm glad that the new building will go all the way to Broadway and cover that horrible, blank facade.

This structure will replace the current eyesore located at 529 Broadway. The current building is the sole piece of junk amidst a sea of magnificent pre-War structures.



Here's the current eyesore.

I like those old Depression era 'taxpayers'. But it's replacement really is so much better and not only reflects the character of the old cast irons in the nabe but utilizes the space available to the site quite well.

22 Story Aloft Hotel Going Into Queens Plaza

Quote:
While new construction on the waterfront has been focused on residential towers, the area just north of Queens Plaza (known as Dutch Kills) has undergone a hotel building boom in recent years. And now there are a couple of new hotel projects in the works just south of the bridge on-ramp. According to signage on the construction fence, a Crowne Plaza hotel is “Coming Soon” to 4231-4235 Crescent Street, on the corner of 42nd Road. Right now the construction fence wraps around a shuttered auto shop, which looks like it’ll be demolished soon. The surrounding warehouses on the block are long gone. (See more photos of the site after the jump.) The DOB hasn’t issued new building permits for the hotel yet but from the looks of the rendering, the design will be eight stories high with some sort of rooftop lounge. Not far away, as we reported recently, an Aloft hotel is in the works for 27-45 Jackson Avenue. It’ll rise 22 stories and is targeted to open in 2015. GMAP
Aloft uses a *tired* cookie cutter design for its branded properties. Hopefully this one can break the mold...
