Major League Soccer Stadium Likely To Land In The Bronx



Quote:
New York's newest Major League Soccer team is reportedly very close to finding a permanent home. Capital New York got their hands on the details of a deal that would have the New York City Football Club, a franchise co-owned by the Yankees and Manchester City owner and Abu Dhabi royalty Sheik Mansour bin Zayed al-Nahyan, build a new stadium near Yankee Stadium. The 10-acre site includes three bankrupt parking facilities, a portion of 153rd Street, and a commercial building that holds a 400-person elevator company. The club would likely pay $25 million to the Bronx Parking Development, which defaulted on a $237 million loan, and they are in talks to buy out the elevator parts company and relocate it. Negotiations are still underway and no one would comment on the possible deal.
Rafael Vinoly appears to be the front runner as architect for the stadium.

Good location. Would make a nice complex with the neighboring Yankee stadium and shopping mall to the south

Speaking of the High line,







http://newyorkyimby.com/2013/12/exca...on-street.html

Quote:
Machinery is on-site and digging has begun at 860 Washington Street, which is the latest project to begin construction adjacent to The High Line. The 10-story and 175 foot tall building is being developed by Romanoff Equities, and the architect is James Carpenter.

860 Washington Street will be primarily office, with retail occupying the first two floors, keeping in character with its pedestrian-oriented surroundings. The project’s approval process took several years; ultimately, the height was shortened to the current version, which will contain 116,000 square feet of space.
.....Completion is expected in the summer of 2015.

New Renderings For Moinian's 3 Hudson Boulevard



Quote:
Moinian Group's giant office tower—one of the few major projects in Hudson Yards not developed by Related—is showing some more sides of itself. Because of apparent tenant interest ("several major companies" that currently remain nameless), reps sent out four new renderings of the FXFOWLE-designed, 1.8 million-square-foot tower at 3 Hudson Boulevard. The 1,000-foot-tall skyscraper—which, last we checked in, was going to be green (LEED Platinum-seeking, of course)—has a two-story "sky club" atop its roof. The possibility remains that 14 high-up floors will be devoted to ultra-luxe condos.

Located on Eleventh Avenue between West 34th and West 35th streets, right above the last stop of the 7 train extension, the building's new glimpses include a view from a 40th-floor office looking east towards to the Empire State Building, as well a look inside the second-floor lobby looking east above the tree tops of adjacent Hudson Boulevard Park.

Revealed: 511 West 35th Street (450 Hudson Park Blvd Redesigned)



Quote:
Alloy’s website has a new rendering of the firm’s plans for 511 West 35th Street, which will eventually house a skyscraper of approximately 500,000 square feet. The current reveal is tentative given the site may still trade hands; Related is making a concerted effort to acquire several lots along the future ‘Hudson Boulevard,’ including 511 West 35th Street.

Per Alloy, “[design] and entitlement work to date expresses the development potential and zoning freedom that the site affords,” corroborating the site’s uncertain future. If the rendered design is built, it would be a departure from the bulkier towers along the southern end of Hudson Boulevard.

Related would be the most sensible choice for the site’s developer, as the company owns an adjacent lot at 517 West 35th Street that can accommodate another large tower;combining the properties would yield air rights of approximately one million square feet, creating an opportunity for another potential supertall.

Those Brooklyn Public Library (280 Cadman Plaza) Tower Proposals In Full:

Quote:
The Economic Development Corporation did not reveal the developers or architects with the renderings (though the Journal says Forest City Ratner is not one of them), but the plans range from completely residential to mixed-use, with heights varying from 285-feet to 585-feet. A new 20,000-square-foot library would be included in the base, no matter which plan is chosen. Two developers sweetened the pot with bigger libraries (30,000-square-feet), five included affordable housing, and another two made the library roof a public green space. Most have retail space, and the number of apartments range from 99 to 167. Renderings show a lot of glass and several feature libraries with big atriums. The winning proposal will be selected early next year.

Proposal F is probably the best one. It looks like a SHoP design, and a surprisingly restrained and elegant one at that.

Cornell Tech Selects Developer For 350-Unit Residence



Quote:
Slowly but surely, Cornell's Roosevelt Island tech campus is becoming a reality. The megaproject is on track for a 2014 groundbreaking, and today Cornell NYC Tech announced that its first residential building will be developed by a joint venture between the Hudson Companies and Related Companies. The project will be a 350-unit residence for students, staff, and faculty, and it will have a mix of micro units and one- to three-bedroom apartments.

The entire campus will take 20 years to build, but the first phase should open in 2017. In addition to the residential building, the first phase includes a 150,000-square-foot, net-zero academic building by Thom Mayne of Morphosis Architects, a walkway linking the campus with Four Freedoms Park, a hotel, and a corporate co-location center. Sadly, there are no renderings of the residence yet..

Pier 57 "SuperPier" Plans Unveiled



Quote:
Pier 57's long road to redevelopment just logged another notch: it's launched an official website, replete with new renderings, a video, GIFs, cute pixelated animations, and, oh yeah, information about leasing for potential tenants. The heroic-sounding, in-limbo SuperPier, developed by the ambitious Youngwoo and Associates, has thus far been host to some temporary fashion and art installations, but the whole place will close next month for construction until it reopens in the summer of 2015. That's when stacks of "incuboxes" (sort of like modular containers) will make up a $200 million food and retail complex populated with local creative companies.

Announced anchor tenants include a spa and restaurant by Andre Balazs, a boutique by Opening Ceremony, and a climbing gym by Brooklyn Boulders. On its new site, SuperPier says it's on the hunt for more tenants to fill the 270,000 square feet, such as "global retailers, entrepreneurs, big brands trying new things, square watermelons." Huh? Apparently, "20 superspaces" are available, ranging from 3,000 to 20,000 square feet. The site proclaims: "SuperPier will be the most innovative experience in culture, entertainment, dining, and retail in NYC since the opening of Rockefeller Center in 1939."

[...]

Any reason most of the library proposals are PoMo?

I like F as it seems to be the only proposal that knows how to deal with a corner site, but it should be shorter.
