We all had heard the rumors but I'm a bit surprised. They are cutting back by 50% for 1 m sq ft? Considering their recent woes stemming from the "London Whale" debacle, I suspect looking at WTC complex may be a little pricey for them. The Hudson Yards would be a perfect fit considering The savings they can get w/ Ross.

The charges they're paying are a one time thing. JPM is the strongest bank in the world. Also, it doesn't occupy the entire building. A large law firm, Milbank, has several hundred thousand sf. They also will need a big block of space.

So what do you think? HY or WTC complex a big possibility for Chase?

It's possible. They also could go for cheaper space at the WFC.

SHoP-Designed 1,350-Foot Tower Gets Landmarks Approval



Quote:
The Landmarks Preservation Commission was sort of surprisingly okay with SHoP Architects' proposed 1,350-square-foot residential tower at 107 West 57th Street, the site of the landmarked Steinway Building (which will also be restored), when it was presented two weeks ago. While the commissioners did have a few concerns, the were for the most part related to the Steinway Building and not to the tower itself. At a second presentation this morning, SHoP addressed those concerns, revising their plans to demolish a much smaller portion of the structure taking up the Steinway Building's back courtyard and replacing the glass of the 57th Street atrium facade with a much clearer single-layered glass, so that observers at street level would be able to look through and see the landmarked building. The plans were approved, and so the 1,350-foot climb begins.

Village Garage-Turned-Condo Hitting The Market Soon



Quote:
A former parking garage at 12 East 13th Street is in the midst of a condo transformation after selling last year for $32 million, and developers DHA Capital and Continental Properties will bring the project to market next month. The Journal has the preliminary details on the building, which will have, following the all-luxury, all-the-time tendency of Manhattan new development these days, eight large units, ranging in size from 2,800 square feet to 5,600 square feet. Prices will go from $7,500,000 to $28,500,000.

Morris Adjmi-Designed Flatiron Condos Win Approval



Quote:
Architect Morris Adjmi has a penchant for charming the Landmarks Preservation Commission. So, while his proposal for two connected structures at West 21st and 22nd streets was not approved the first time it was presented to the Commission back in September, it would not be denied twice. Adjmi took the LPC's advice and narrowed the windows at the 22nd Street base in order to give it a more vertical look and also increased the ratio of metal to stone. "The applicant has [done] everything we asked," commented commissioner Joan Gerber. Commissioner Michael Devonshire remarked that it was "nice to see a building in the hands of a master." The plans were approved unanimously.

Related Hudson Yards Approved for $328 Million Tax Break



Quote:
Stephen Ross’s Related Cos. received approval for a $328 million exemption from New York City taxes for the construction of an 80-story skyscraper and a shopping mall at its Hudson Yards development on Manhattan’s west side.

New York’s Industrial Development Agency today approved the subsidy, said Patrick Muncie, an agency spokesman. The project was previously granted a $106 million tax break for the first tower at Hudson Yards, and it also will benefit from $3 billion of city bonds sold to extend the No. 7 subway line, according to an analysis by the city’s Independent Budget Office.

The planned 13.3 million-square-foot (1.2 million-square-meter) project, which Mayor Michael Bloomberg has called one of the largest private developments in U.S. history, aims to expand Manhattan’s midtown business district west toward the Hudson River, with offices, apartments, parks and cultural venues. Work on the complex, much of which requires a platform to be built over a rail yard, has proceeded slower than anticipated, costing the city more than $100 million in expected tax revenue, the IBO said in an April report.

The new abatement means “the city will need to pump more money than previously expected into Hudson Yards to meet the development’s debt-service obligations,” Doug Turetsky, the IBO’s chief of staff, said in an Oct. 3 statement.

More cantilevers!

Revised COOKFOX Puzzle Building Approved by Landmarks



Quote:
COOKFOX's crazy cantilevered building proposal for 39-41 West 23 Street divided the Landmarks Commission when it was presented last month. A revised version of the design, simplified and toned down slightly, was presented yesterday and, although not every member of the Commission was convinced that the building is appropriate for a historic district, enough were that the plans were granted approval.

The building, to be constructed on the site of another controversial proposal, the Pope Hat building (which never ended up happening), retained the basic premise of its original design—a nine-story base with a cantilevered section and secondary facade.

And then Donald Trump would sue over blocked ESB views, which would be hilariously ironic!


- additional deets:

Quote:
The investment brokers had been recently gathering signed confidentiality agreements that would allow the property to be put on the market for sale. Jeff Sutton, the owner of the retail condominiums at 717 Fifth Ave. has passed on his right of first offer, or ROFO, according to the newspaper report. The major office tenants at the building are Merrill Lynch/Bank of America and Island Capital.

Blackstone reportedly owns 260,677 square feet of office space at the property, while Sutton owns the ground and second floors of 80,834 square feet plus the fourth floor of 23,128 square feet.

What about those two short buildings in the foreground? Are they up for redevelopment?

New Renderings Revealed At Pier 17 'Groundbreaking'



Quote:
The Howard Hughes Corporation was supposed to begin demolition of the current Pier 17 structure at the beginning of October, but one holdout tenant threw a wrench in their plans and it's now unclear when construction will actually start. But that did not stop the developer from hosting a ceremonial "groundbreaking" today, October 17 (see what they did there?). The event took place at the site of the Beekman Beer Garden, and to get there, guests were whisked by golf carts from South Street to the door of Pier 17—a thrilling 30 second ride—where a blue carpet led them through the mall and down a walkway lined with printed renderings of the future pier. After some self-congratulatory speeches and an over-the-top CGI video, the developers, architects, and city officials shoveled a pile of dirt that had been transported to the pier specifically for the show. They also released new renderings, so there was at least a sliver of news presented.

Midtown East Rezoning

From Plazas to WiFi, Midtown East's New Public Plans Unveiled



Quote:
Less than six months ago, the city commissioned a team to study the public space (or regrettable lack thereof) within the 73-block swath of East Midtown that is likely to get rezoned before the year is out. Opinion on the plan, which would allow taller and denser office buildings with a titch of residential development while having property owners pay into a fund to support infrastructure, transit and other public improvements, has been divided... to say the least. One of the ways to woo more supporters is to emphasize how the physical feel of the area around Grand Central will change for the better for pedestrians, commuters, visitors, and everyday New Yorkers, and that's what the team's just-released mega-report, "Places for People" (warning: PDF!), did.


A pedestrianized Pershing Square (southeast section).





Creating new public plazas and space just south of Grand Central around the viaduct off-ramp.





The viaduct will have room for pedestrians, along with a lane of traffic.





An aerial view of pedestrianizing the viaduct, while keeping traffic passing through there as well.





Then as Vanderbilt Avenue gets pedestrianized, the viaduct walkway overlooks the street with viewing balconies.





An aerial view of the proposed changes to Vanderbilt Avenue and its byways to Madison Avenue.





This is Library Way, on 41st Street between Park Avenue South and Madison.





Overhauling Library Way would involved pedestrianizing it, adding seating, and more.





Park Avenue's medians are another place for public space improvement.





An aerial view of proposed changes to Park Avenue's medians.





This is the entrance to the subway at 51st and Lexigton, reimagined as more spacious and conspicuous.









A visualization of how transportation users move around the area.











This is the specific swath of area getting rezoned.





The black space shows buildings, while the white space reveals open space, not all of which is usable or adaptable.











Revamping 53rd Street.





Revamping 43rd Street east of Grand Central





Improving infrastructure for bicycles.





Potential Wi-Fi hotspots.
