New Rendering, Land Use Approval For Tamarkin's Soho Condo
http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2013/1...soho_condo.php



Quote:
The car-wash replacing condo tower planned for a wedge-shaped site between Sixth Avenue and Sullivan Street received approval from the Board of Standards and Appeals, reports the Real Deal, and the news comes with the first color rendering (click on it to enlarge) of the development. The project's official address was also revealed, 10 Sullivan Street. It's being developed by Madison Equities and Property Markets Group and designed by Cary Tamarkin, who came to the project's rescue after plans by Richard DeMarco were rejected. Since the site is currently a car-wash, the development required a variance because it's zoned for commercial and industrial use.

The development consists of a 204-foot high, 16-story condo tower with four adjoining 25-foot wide townhouses. Here's how the PR-babble describes the look: "Rounded glass windows will define the building's southern prow, surrounding the spacious living rooms and allowing for breathtaking panoramic views. The building's fašade will feature a corbelled black and blonde Norman brick exterior with large classic industrial-style windows."

Park Slope McDonalds giving Way To 11 Story Residential Development



Quote:
A Park Slope McDonald’s could bite the dust soon, because developer Adam America filed a new building application last week for an eleven-story mixed-use building at 275 4th Avenue. The 120-foot building will have 78 units occupying 60,188 square feet, along with 4,476 square feet of commercial space and 300 square feet of community space. AA’s website helpfully notes that the building will be “high-end rental units” with amenities like a part-time doorman, tenant lounge, private gym, roof deck and personal storage space. ODA Architecture is designing the stepped, glassy building, which happens to be a couple blocks away from another eleven-story building planned for 4th Avenue, as well as the recently completed Landmark Park Slope.

The only thing out of place is that hideous castle-wannabe next door.

Cornell Tech's Glassy Green Roosevelt Island Campus Revealed



Quote:
After finally getting the green light, Cornell just unleashed a slew of new renderings that show what its new Roosevelt Island tech campus will actually look like. At 2 million square feet, the glassy, sustainable, public-space-prioritizing project has tapped the brains of a long roster of respected city architects and firms: Morphosis' Pritzker Prize-winning Thom Payne; Weiss/Manfredi Architecture; Handel Architects; and Skidmore Owings & Merrill. Peruse through the images below to get a feel for the designs of 1) the first academic building, with aspirations for net-zero energy use; 2) the "tech walk" or central campus plaza; 3) the corporate co-location building (which will have students working side-by-side with entrepreneurs and tech-industry professionals); and 4) the first residential building, set to hold 350 units.

I like this Roosevelt Island redevelopment. Maybe they will incorporate those famous ruins somehow in the landscaping.

It's official!

GroupM Signs 3 WTC Lease Clearing The Way For Tower's Construction



Quote:
It was expected, but now it's official. 3 World Trade Center has scored its first tenant. Media investment managers GroupM just signed a 20-year lease for 516,000 square feet over nine floors at the base of the under-construction 80-story tower. The building is now expected to open in 2017. Pretty nice Christmas present for landlord Silverstein Properties.

400 Park Avenue South Reveals Its Glassiness



Quote:
Developer Toll Brothers may have officially named 400 Park Avenue South Sky Couture, but the glassy blue tower will forever be known as the Fortress of Glassitude in the Curbediverse. The tower is reaching its topping out point, and the facade is being installed on the lower levels, so we're starting to really see the angular edifice's crystalline shape. Starchitect Christian de Portzamparc designed the 40-story tower, and these photos, taken late last week, show it from the northeast corner of 28th Street and Park Avenue South.

It has unimpeded views of Central Park, even taking into account all of the planned towers, and could be cleared ASAP.

These thoughts prompted a Google search which yielded the following:

City Spire and Metropolitan Tower can be seen to the west.

$278M in funding secured for B'klyn tower

Groundbreaking looms for 52-story mixed-income residential tower that will rise in downtown Brooklyn's cultural district. Some 282 of the 586 apartments designated as permanently affordable to low- and middle-income residents.

http://www.crainsnewyork.com/article...TATE/131239987



Quote:
The city and a developer group recently closed on $278 million in financing for a 52-story mixed-income residential tower slated to rise in downtown Brooklyn's cultural district, officials announced Monday.

That clears the way for a groundbreaking for the project within weeks. The FXFOWLE-designed building at 250 Ashland Place on the corner of Fulton Street will contain 586 one- to three-bedroom apartments. Some 282 of them will be set aside permanently as affordable to low- and middle-income residents. The new tower will be one of several developments in the borough's planned culture hub.

The bulk of the construction tab came through a $142 million loan from Wells Fargo, TD Bank and Capital One, while other funding streams included $19.3 million in financing through federal Low Income Housing Tax Credits and $33 million in tax-exempt bonds from HDC.
