Construction spending soared in the boom days of 2007, but those numbers are peanuts compared to what we’re on track to see this year.

Construction spending in New York City is on track to reach $31.5 billion in 2013, a 14 percent jump from last year’s $27.6 billion and topping 2007′s high of $31.1 billion, according to a forecast from the New York Building Congress, cited by the New York Observer.

And that number is expected to continue growing, hitting $33.4 billion in 2014 and $37 billion in 2015, said the report, completed along with the New York Building Foundation and with help from Urbanomics.

Why?

Well compare the prices of construction material in 2007 to this year 2013, I'm sure they are up. There still might be less new projects that in 2007 but costs is up. I wish they would do a basic comparison on how many projects, average cost of material etc...

Iron Ore, Coal, Cement, Aluminum and Copper prices are all currently below historical prices, therefore the assessment is fair.

What?! Nooo! I had no idea this was in the works. I really liked Pier 17 the way it was. There are a lot of other locations that would really benefit from new development, while this location was doing just fine the way it was. I'm sad to see it go.

Surely labor and transportation costs have gone up, right?

I think it's another horrible modernist piece of junk. Seen, forgotten. @Highline box

What did you expected? A castle?
It's really good architecture. Classy.

That guy is really an anti-modernist nazi. Oh my god...
Half his posts are about how much he hates modernism.

Yeah, it looks fine. I like the black frame and how they're connected under the highline.

This is actually a pretty old picture, excavation is well underway and it looks like they are about to start pouring the foundation. I live close by and will try to snap a picture sometime soon.

What a trollish comment to be coming from a moderator. Shameful.

And I think here:



Will be this bauhaus-like building presented some time ago in this thread. But I might be wrong.

The Glassy New Building Coming to Sixth Ave.

Quote:
Call it the Two Triangles Building—or better yet, The Remnant: DDG, which also did 24 Warren and the under-construction 12-14 Warren, presented plans at CB1′s Landmarks Committee for an eight-story building—really two buildings that barely connect—on the two triangular parking lots on Sixth Avenue, between White and Franklin. The lots were created in the 1930s, when Sixth Avenue was extended south....

New York City's 250,000 street lights will all be LEDs by 2017

New York City is transitioning its 250,000 street lights to energy-efficient LEDs in an upgrade that should be completed by 2017. CBS reports that Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced the timeframe today, noting that the upgraded lights will save city taxpayers around $14 million a year once the transition is complete. The savings is two-fold: LEDs consume less power than their high-pressure sodium counterparts, resulting in around $6 million in savings, and they also have a much longer lifespan, lasting up to 20 years. Current street lights last an average just six years, Bloomberg said.

LED lights has lots of pros but have one big con: LED lights make streets little darker. Seattle upgraded most of its streetlights with LEDs in the past few years and it became little darker. I hope it won't be big problem for NYC.

375k sf with no height restriction will yield quite a tall tower.

That sounds great! Energy saving is more and more important.
