West Side Development Site Sells for $167M to Frank McCourt



Quote:
Tuesday, September 3, 2013, by Jessica Dailey

Frank McCourt, the Boston developer turned failed owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers turned $50 million Manhattan co-op owner, is joining the development party in Midtown West. The Journal reports that McCourt purchase a site at 10th Avenue and 30th Street for about $167 million—nearly four times the price that previous owner Sherwood Equities paid in 2011. Located at 360 10th Avenue, the site, which sits across the street from Hudson Yards, will see a 730,000-square-foot residential and office tower. It will be McCourt's largest development ever. No architect or design details have yet been revealed.
A residential tower of this size could go supertall, depending on the design.

Calatrava, Archdiocese make it official at FiDi church site


From left: Santiago Calavatra, former Church of St. Nicholas at 155 Cedar Street and Andrew Cuomo

Quote:
The Greek Archdiocese reportedly has a contract in place with architect Santiago Calavatra to design the new Church of St. Nicholas at 130 Liberty Street.

The designer will create a new and larger version of the house of worship destroyed on 9/11, a move backed by Governor Andrew Cuomo, despite the efforts of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which is co-developing 1 World Trade Center, to move the church one block west to its original location at 155 Cedar Street.

For his part, Calavatra is also designing a delayed — and $2 billion over budget — World Trade Center Transportation Hub, overruns that have drawn the governor’s condemnation.
Inb4 $500 million chapel!

Pier’s Developer Looks for a Creative Tenant Mix
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/04/re...anted=all&_r=0



Quote:
The plans are part of a larger effort to redesign Pier 57, a long-abandoned former shipping and passenger terminal that spans about a half-million square feet at 15th Street in the meatpacking district.

The $200 million project, set to break ground in October and to be completed in 2015, will also include a food bazaar akin to a Southeast Asian night market, with noodle pullers and sushi bars. There will also be 400 shipping containers housing some 200 stores and start-up companies. The developer, Youngwoo & Associates, is designing an approximately two-acre public green space for the roof.

I've generally been tiring of the scattered panel facade look, but this looks excellent.

Very cool project! I only see one problem with it, it looks exactly the same as 100 other UC or proposed around the globe.

Yeah I knew about the big openings up at the top, but I'd never noticed that the upper stripes weren't glass.

New Era for Skyscrapers

Tall, Skinny Residential Towers Take the Place of Midtown Office Buildings


A rendering of developer Michael Stern's planned apartment tower at 107 W. 57th St.,
which will be approximately 1,350 feet tall.

Quote:
Developer Michael Stern wants to build a stairway to heaven in Midtown Manhattan.

The managing partner of JDS Development Group and his partners at Property Markets Group are planning a skinny, ultra-luxury condo tower on West 57th Street, which will be about 100 feet taller than the Empire State Building. The venture's plans for the tower submitted last month to the city's Landmarks Preservation Commission call for an approximately 1,350-foot skyscraper that sets back from the street numerous times as it reaches higher—resembling tall, thin steps.

"It's really going to enhance the skyline," says Vishaan Chakrabarti, a partner at SHoP Architects, which designed the tower. He says the planned tower would be clad with bronze-and-white terra-cotta stripes, so the building "sparkles during the day and has a soft glow at night."

It remains unclear whether the venture has obtained financing, a crucial element for any development, especially at a time that many banks are still reluctant to make loans for condo projects. A spokesman for JDS declined to comment on the financing, but said the developer hopes to break ground early next year.

Should it be built, the tower would be the latest entrant in the luxury condo-fueled skyscraper race that is reshaping the Midtown vista and ushering in a new era for skyscrapers in the city. Up until now, the city's skyline has been dominated by office towers that house thousands of workers. But lately many of the new towers rising, particularly around Central Park, have been skinny apartment towers.

[...]

Earlier this year, Mr. Stern's group increased the size of the project by cutting a deal for additional development rights from a nearby property owner and by buying a neighboring building—the 1925-built home of piano maker Steinway Musical Instruments Inc.'s flagship store—and its air rights. In all, the venture has spent more than $250 million on acquisitions, according to property records.

In addition to its height, the building is notable for being so thin. Its lot is just 43-feet wide, according to city records, and many of the floors would be 4,000 to 5,000 square feet in size, Mr. Chakrabarti says.

The building is slated to include many full-floor apartments with views all around. "There will be moments in these apartments where you can see Midtown to the south and Central Park to the north," he says.
