I think the St John development could benefit with this for even taller! No?

Alloy moves to trim Hudson Yards-area holdings -
Related said to be eyeing West 35th Street site

http://therealdeal.com/blog/2013/11/...ards-holdings/



Quote:
Alloy Development is selling one of its sites near Hudson Yards — and expects to get $75 million for the deal.

A buyer could build a tower with up to 415,000 square feet of space at the site, at 511 West 35th Street, west of Penn Station. About 100,000 square feet could be residential, thanks to the city’s sale of air rights in the neighborhood.

The Related Companies, which is famously developing Hudson Yards with Oxford Properties and owns several properties in the area, is expected to be one of the potential bidders.

Robert Knakal of Massey Knakal Realty Services, who is marketing the property for Alloy, told Crain’s that a number of hotel developers have expressed interest in the site.

“With Javits nearby and the construction of all the office and retail space that is planned on the far West Side, there is a real market growing for hotels,” he told Crain’s

160 East 22nd Street Ushers in the Age of the Cantilever



Quote:
The Landmarks Preservation Commission's recent of approval of two projects involving cantilevers—COOKFOX's 39-41 West 23rd Street and, more significantly, Extell's 217 West 57th Street, which will loom over the neighboring individually landmarked American Fine Arts Society—had preservationists worrying that cantilevering shiny new towers over historic buildings could become the new norm for developers. And, right on cue, here's 160 East 22nd Street, a new project from Toll Brothers. New York Yimby snapped some photos of the currently-under-construction 81-unit building that hit the market back in April, the southern portion of which hangs over the neighboring two-story townhouse, extending 25 feet in the air.

Selldorf-Designed Number 10 To Join Bond St. Starchitect Club



Quote:
It's about time that the architectural craziness of Noho's Bond Street—think numbers 40, 41, and 25—got a new neighbor. Enter 10 Bond Street, designed by Annabelle Selldorf and developed by a trifecta of SK Development, Ironstate Development and the Chetrit Group. It shall plop 11 residences on the cobble-stoned thoroughfare's northwest intersection with Lafayette Street. Behind a terra cotta and weathered steel facade will stand one townhouse with a private garage, one penthouse with large, landscaped terraces and nine two- to three-bedrooms. Earlier plans had been unveiled to surprising acclaim from the community-board set, and the project was approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission last year, but the new rendering above is the first up-to-date look at what to expect.

Chetrit Bro Plans Hotel, Residences, Retail Near Lorimer Stop



Quote:
A big lot on Metropolitan Avenue is getting a 14-story hotel with spaces for restaurants/bars and retail, with a 182-spot garage below and residences on top. The rendering above was posted on the site's blue plywood, which currently obscures a big pile of dirt. The previous architect of record for this triangular building with tiered setbacks was—shudder—Gene Kaufman, but it's now Kutnicki Bernstein. (Better?) The 150-foot-tall, 146,040-square-foot project—which is owned by Meyer Chetrit, brother of Joseph, though they don't always work together—is broken down into 56,584 square feet of commercial space and 89,186 square feet of residential space.

DOB filings for 500 Metropolitan Avenue show 234 "dwelling units," and it seems that the division between hotel rooms and apartments will come at the eighth floor. On that story and above, there are 50 units and a recreation area, while below there are 188 units, including two duplexes.

Nice. Tons of buildings could use a good re-skinning in NYC imo.

What's shakin North of the Hudson Yards?

Hell’s Kitchen is what’s Sizzling
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/11/17/re...EqmamYSknF7+jg



Quote:
In the race to develop the West Side of Manhattan, Hell’s Kitchen can seem the tortoise to the Hudson Yards hare. Yet if Hudson Yards suddenly seems to be going up all at once, its neighbor to the north has been moving ahead in slow, deliberate steps, year after year.

About a dozen residential projects are in the pipeline for the neighborhood — some finished, some underway and some in the planning stages. They include Gotham West, a rental complex with more than 1,200 apartments that recently opened on West 45th Street; 540West, a 114-unit condo under construction on West 49th Street; and, on West 50th, Stella Tower, a 51-unit sister building to the Walker Tower in Chelsea. The Chelsea version was named for its architect, Ralph Walker, and the one in Hell’s Kitchen for his wife.
These projects are being built in the area running from West 42nd to West 57th Street, and from Ninth Avenue to the Hudson River. When the name “Hell’s Kitchen” gained currency in the 1800s, the neighborhood ran from 59th Street down into the 30s, west of Eighth Avenue, and was known for its gang violence and squalor. Various parts of the loosely defined area have since been called Clinton, Midtown West and Chelsea North. But despite the neighborhood’s 21st-century respectability, Hell’s Kitchen appears to have sticking power as a name And for the most part, longtime residents have met the changes with tolerance.
Quote:
A sizable part of the neighborhood is made up of affordable housing, some resulting from the rehabilitation of abandoned rowhouses. Among the large public projects are Manhattan Plaza on 42nd Street and Ninth Avenue, largely inhabited by artists; and Clinton Manor, on 51st Street near 10th Avenue, which has 241 apartments for Section 8 tenants. Some developers included below-market units in exchange for being allowed to erect bigger buildings. Retailers have taken an interest, too. Shops are planned for the Windermere, a shuttered 1881 apartment building at 9th Avenue …… (Read more in Link)

I wonder if these plans have come into any sharper focus, given all the NIMBY attackers out there...

Big Glass Triangle Gets Less Glassy, Approved By Landmarks



Quote:
Earlier designs for a triangular building at 19 East Houston Street drew the ire of the both the community and the Landmarks Commission, so Perkins Eastman made significant changes before bringing the plans back this morning. While the original design had called for a primarily glass facade, the new one features a contextual brick facade at Crosby Street and a completely separate facade of staggered glass and recessed metal panels at East Houston, addressing commissioners' concerns that the building would appear thin and flimsy.
