BAM Cultural District Tower Gets Financing, New Address



Quote:
2013 has been very good to the BAM Cultural District. Two new theaters opened, Two Trees' building won city approval, a developer was chosen for the last undeveloped city-owned site, and designs were revealed for a 52-story tower by FXFOWLE. The latter is also a city-owned site, and today HPD announced that the building secured $278 million in financing, putting it on the path to an early 2014 groundbreaking (slightly delayed from previous reports that construction would start by the end of the year). The press release also clarified the building's formal address: 250 Ashland Place.

Would have looked better if the cladding didn't have that outdated uneven window pattern.

I went to New York in 2005. If I returned now, would I notice the different in terms of new skyscrapers built in that time? I'm sure I would notice Freedom tower, but are there any other new 'stunners'?

The biggest additions besides 1 and 4 World Trade would be Bank of America Tower and One57. If you go to the Top of the Rock, you'll have a stellar view of both. Between BofA, NY Times and 4 Times Square, Midtown has a very prominent cluster of spires where only a decade ago the only spire was ESB. It's especially noticeable when they're all lit up at night.

Oh, and New York by Gehry, next to the Brooklyn Bridge, while not quite as tall as the others, stands out a bunch on the East River waterfront, not least of all because of it's incredible metallic skin.

But a lot of the coolest new additions are low- or mid-rise. Walk up and down the Highline to see a bunch of them.

(And I'll throw in a personal favorite -- the Viceroy Hotel, which I think is utterly gorgeous)

Convention center and 25-story hotel headed for area near Citi Field

http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/...icle-1.1564794



Quote:
A spacious convention center and 25-story hotel and apartment complex will soon rise on the site of a Corona car dealership near Citi Field.

Fleet Financial Group plans to break ground on the $200 million project in June. The Flushing-based group purchased the 1.67-acre DiBlasi Ford dealership, at 112-21 Northern Blvd., for $17 million last month.

The site sits across the Grand Central Parkway from Citi Field, where a $3 billion mega-mall and housing complex is planned for Willets Point.

“For the longest time, Queens has wanted to have some sort of facility like a Javits Center,” said Fleet president Richard Xia, who chose the location for its close proximity to the airports. “It’s going to be great for the area.”

The group plans to build 292 five-star hotel rooms and 236 apartments above the roughly 106,000-square-foot convention center. The project will also include about 97,000 square feet of retail space, a restaurant and parking.

Xia is also in talks with Audi to put a showroom on the site.

The development, and in particular the conference center, should be a boon for the borough, said Queens Economic Development Corp. Executive Director Seth Bornstein.

“We really lack quality convention space,” said Bornstein, who added the project will bring jobs and an influx of business travelers to Queens. “It’s a good location for a good development,” he noted.

And the up-and-coming area can support the project, said real estate appraiser Jonathan Miller.

The East River site is just across the parkway from Citi Field, the USTA’s tennis center and the Queens Museum in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park.

“The area is under-utilized now,” Miller said. The project “makes sense. . . . You’ve already had large-scale development come in.”

But not everyone is a fan of all of the mega-development.

“That particular site is an area that has perpetual traffic problems and is undeserved by mass transit,” said local activist Donovan Finn. “With so much going on in downtown Flushing and Willets (Point), I don’t know if the market can support it all.”

The predominantly low- and middle-income, immigrant neighborhood could be better served by more schools and affordable housing, he said.

“There’s a lot of things this community needs and is crying out for,” Finn said. “A convention center is not one of them.”

From 57th Street to the Fulton Center, what to watch in 2014
http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2014/0...ch_in_2014.php



2013 saw a lot of pretty awesome crap (too much holiday boozing made you forget everything? Take a gander at the Curbed Awards), but what's done is done, and it's time for some new awesome crap. What does 2014 have in store for New Yorkers? Quite a lot. Here now, the eight things we're most excited for:

The World Trade Center
No official date has been set, but the first half of 2014 will see the opening of the crown jewel of the new World Trade Center, plus the long-delayed museum. The 1,776-foot-tall One World Trade Center—which holds the distinction of being the tallest tower in the western hemisphere and the most expensive building in the world—will finally welcome its tenants. The National 9/11 Museum suffered several financing-related setbacks, but it, too, will finally open, completing the memorial plaza. No date has been set for that opening either, but Silverstein Properties previously said it could open by spring. Meanwhile, construction will continue on the transportation hub and 3 World Trade Center, set to open in 2015 and 2016, respectively. The performing arts center and 2 World Trade Center are still in flux.



Fulton Center
Barring anymore delays, the long-awaited Fulton Center will finally open in July, connecting 11 subway lines at six stations in a multi-leveled retail center with a 79-foot occulus covered with a sparkling stainless steel net of reflective aluminum diamonds set in a stainless-steel tracer. The opening of the $1.4 billion center will mean the elimination of a huge swath of construction fencing in Downtown, as well as the creation of 70,000-square-feet of new retail space.



Governors Island
New Yorkers' favorite summertime escape will be even more delightful when it reopens for the 2014 season. We saw the start of the 30 new acres of parkland, but spring will bring more greenery and the Hammock Grove, as well as new playing fields. Construction will be continuing on the sweeping lookout Hills, and work will likely start on the historic buildings that will be converted for new tenants.



Atlantic Yards B2
Crews hoisted the first mod of Forest City Ratner's prefabulous tower on a freezing cold day in December, and, thanks to the modern wonders of modular building, the 32-story tower will be constructed in less than a year. The cubes will be stacked quickly, so we're on constant construction watch, but we're also looking forward to seeing inside the units and charting how well they do on the open market. The first tenants should be moving in by the fourth quarter of 2014.



Record-Shattering Closings
Nearly every price record is set to be broken in 2014. The $50M+ Walker Tower penthouse will set a new downtown record (current holder is the $42M penthouse at 18 Gramercy Park), and Roman Abramovich would shatter the previously held co-op record if he did indeed buy the penthouse mansion at 828 Fifth Avenue for $75 million. The current record was set by David Geffen in 2012 when he paid $54 million for a unit at 785 Fifth Avenue. One57, meanwhile, will see New York City's most expensive sale ever when its $90M+ penthouse closes; the superscraper had two penthouses listed for more than $90M, both of which are in contract. But the One57 penthouse could easily be ousted by the end of the year if one of the multiple $95M to $100M+ listings on the market finds a buyer.



57th Street
Fifty-seventh street will continue to be a construction hotbed in 2014. Macklowe's 432 Park Avenue will likely topping out, Bjarke Ingels' magical pyramid will start to grow, and the SHoP-designed 107 West 57th Street, as well as Extell's 1,400-foot-tall 217 West 57th Street, could break ground. Construction photos of all of the above are always welcome on the tipline.



56 Leonard Construction
Speaking of construction watches, 56 Leonard, which is already entertaining us with its angles and cantilevering cubes, will continue to rise. Things will get even more fun as the building grows taller and gets its glassy skin, though it will continue to be slow going, thanks to the building's irregular floorplans and setbacks (which have already caused headaches for the contractors). The building won't be complete until 2015, but most of the structure should take shape this year.



Newly Unarrested Developments
2013 saw several mega Manhattan towers come back from the dead; Nouvel's Tower Verre, Silverstein's 30 Park Place, and Helmet Jahn's 50 West Street all received huge cash infusions in the last 12 months, putting them on the path to construction. That means we'll be on high alert for construction action, pricing information, and/or any new renderings throughout all of 2014. Here's hoping for all of the above.



Hudson Yards Mega Development

- article omitted this in the article, so I'll include this here. The Entire Phase 1 slated to go under construction in 2014! 4 towers (2 supertall) Retail Mall & Culture Shed.

Honorable Mentions for 2014:
45 East 60th Street & 625 West 57th Street (Pyramid)

2014 will be epic!

Hudson Yards is a work of art.

Cluster and density is impressive.

They also forgot the New York Wheel and the new outlets in northern Staten Island scheduled to start this year; this will be a game changer for that area. Ironic that they forgot about it cause St George won neighborhood of the year on Curbed

Another Large Project Revealed For Staten Island's North Shore



Quote:
Staten Island's North Shore is having a moment. First came plans for the 625-foot-tall New York Wheel. Then SHoP Architects revealed a multi-tiered outlet mall, and ground broke on 900 apartments in Stapleton. And now the Staten Island Advance brings news of yet another mixed-use megaproject. Called Lighthouse Point, the project is located on a three-acree abandoned pier that used to hold a lighthouse and Coast Guard base, and it will combine new construction and historic preservation to create new retail and dining, plus a 96-unit rental tower and a 180-room hotel. Triangle Equities is the developer. Its fellow megaprojects are close by, and while Lighthouse Point did not require a full public review, the city considered it with the wheel and outlets for the environmental impact study.

Avalon Willoughby Progress Report



Quote:
The Brooklyn Eagle's Facebook page has a handful of photos of ongoing work at the mud pit that will house Brooklyn's next tallest building. Avalon Willoughby West will rise 596 feet, housing 861 rental units across 57 stories. Designed by glassy tower mavens SLCE, work started back in October, and though it doesn't seem like much progress has been made, construction is scheduled to be complete by the end of 2015, when it will surpass the borough's current tallest rental: newly leasing 388 Bridge Street.

A Tale Of Two Mayors: New York City's Development Under Bloomberg Vs. De Blasio
In the waning days of his mayoralty last month, Michael Bloomberg took the maiden ride of the 7 line subway extension to the new 34th Street Hudson Yards station that will open to the public this summer. The first subway extension paid for by the city since 1950, the new 7 line stop is at the heart of one of Bloomberg’s biggest legacy projects. Boasting six million square feet of office space, a 750,000-square-foot mall, 5,000 apartment units and something called a culture shed, Hudson Yards is the city’s biggest building exercise in a generation.
Hudson Yards is the type of big idea project that defined Bloomberg’s 12 years in office. With the rebuilding of the World Trade Center, three new sports stadiums, and plans for a ground-up tech campus on Roosevelt Island, Bloomberg is proud to have left behind a string of landmark megaprojects. Bloomberg has said that Daniel Doctoroff, his deputy mayor for economic development, has “had a greater impact on this city, I think, than Robert Moses.” Bloomberg’s economic development agenda has created thousands of jobs and helped New York City retain its claim as the global capital of finance and business.
Less clear is incoming Mayor Bill de Blasio’s approach to the built environment, and how his policies over at least the next four years will shape the city. But there are clues. During his years as a City Council Member from Brooklyn’s 39th District, de Blasio’s urban planning agenda was clear: affordable housing, affordable housing, affordable housing. In 2011, as the city’s Public Advocate, de Blasio made a list of “New York City’s Worst Landlords,” ranking landlords by number of building infractions. De Blasio’s run for mayor was marked by his “tale of two cities” narrative about inequality, in which affordable housing was the core of his development plan. De Blasio cruised to a landslide victory by painting himself as a populist antidote to Bloomberg’s development-at-all-costs doctrine, but closer inspection shows New York’s big building spree may not be over quite yet.
