Inwood To Get A Karim Rashid Building



Quote:
Less than a month ago, renderings were revealed for a bonkers "diamond signature" condo building designed by Karim Rashid, and now the kooky designer has been tapped for yet another Upper Manhattan building by the same developer. HAP Investments announced in a press release that Rashid will design a 100-unit rental building, called HAP 4, at 653-667 West 187th Street in Inwood, which they describe as "a peaceful neighborhood that has preserved its atmosphere as a suburban area within Manhattan, and is still home to a prosperous and diverse community." Preliminary renderings on HAP's website show a checkered purple facade with Tetris-like windows.

A 20 story residential tower is being developed at the High Line. Given the location, this could be architecturally significant.

20-story Chelsea Skybox proposed for High Line at 188 11th Avenue

Quote:
Gird your loins for another High Line project at 188 11th Avenue.

The 20-story, 33-unit “Chelsea Skybox” will rise, all heroic-like, on the corner of 11th Avenue and West 23rd Street. Beyer Blinder Belle is the architect of record for the mixed-use project, according to a plan exam application filed November 18th.

Israeli investor Jonathan Leitersdorf bought the prime development site from hotelier Richard Born in 2011, the New York Post reported. The closing was on a long-term ground lease covering two buildings. Leitersdorf and partner John Jacobson envisioned the new development as an event space along with high-end loft rentals, according to the Post.

So what can we expect from the 74,050-square-foot project across from Chelsea Piers? Roughly 15,000 square feet of retail space spread across the first, third and fourth floors. Apartments start on the second floor, with full-floor units from the seventh through 20th floors. The building will be topped with a recreation roof deck, complete with a swimming pool.

A demolition permit was filed May 17th for an existing two-story building on the site.

One-Acre Elevated Park to Overlook September 11 Memorial



Quote:
A one-acre park on the roof of the World Trade Center's vehicle security center, dubbed Liberty Park, has been in the works for some time, but the Port Authority wasn't saying much about it until all the details were finalized. The Port Authority's cover was blown, however, when architect Santiago Calatrava released renderings of his design for the rebuilt Church of St. Nicholas, which first appeared on the Tribeca Citizen and revealed an outline of what the park would look like. Since then, the park's designer, landscape architect Joseph E. Brown, has been more forthcoming, elaborating details of the design to the Times. Sitting 25 feet above Liberty Street with a panoramic view of the National September 11 Memorial, the park will feature around 40 trees and shrubs, a small amphitheater-like elevated space, and a large staircase paralleling Greenwich Street with wooden benches on its landings. It will be accessible from Battery Park City via the West Street pedestrian bridge, and from a ramp on Greenwich Street. There will also be stairways at two other corners. Perhaps most notably, the Liberty Street facade will feature a 300-foot-long, 20-foot-high "living wall" made of various types of vines and ivy.

That is significant, the height for the HL area. Hope the design will be in line with the many architecturally interesting buildings rising there.

The long stalled site at 25 Great Jones street is seeing some action. The new design already passed the Landmarks Commission.



Unlike the old design, this will maintain the street wall . It is hard to see from the pictures, but the facade will use cor-ten steel. This will fit in well with 10 Bond across the street.

More at curbed. Photo courtesy of the real deal.

The historic facades in that rendering are all genuine. The lot with the proposed glassy facade is directly beside the historic buildings. The lot is widest at crosby street but as you get to Broadway, it becomes extremely thin, making it look as if it were part of the older building directly beside it. The proposed building will be too thin, I'm sure they'll simply unite it with the older building beside it.

Ahhhh. Interesting. I was wondering what was meant by "triangular." I guess I thought the plan was to build a new building in back of the old one while maintaining the historic facade -- didn't realize they were actually two separate lots. Thanks for clearing that up!

Cook Fox's adjacent, proposed building (on the BP site) is seen below, as is the presently empty, triangular lot on which the newly-approved structure will rise.

This area has very historic stone architecture mostly from the mid to late 1800s, but it's getting a little dose of glass.

Those two buildings will complement each other beautifully. Man, you guys get all the good stuff. Have you checked the LA Projects & Construction section lately? 90% of our new lowrise architecture is just hideous.

Unfortunately, there's a lot of shockingly horrible stuff being built too, local forumers (myself included) just selectively ignore it.

What Skanska is Chasing
http://www.bisnow.com/commercial-rea...ka-is-chasing/

If you want to know the future of NYC's skyline, you need look no further than the jobs that construction giant Skanska is eyeing...

Go West, young man.

Quote:
Skanska's NYC metro group doesn't have any office high-rises going right now, but he's watching the West Side.

A lot more construction than just what's announced is on the way, considering all the air rights to be had along the Hudson, he says.
Stay Tuned!! Drool

^ Rather weak design for this incredible location. Disappointing.
