I like the way the Queens skyline is shaping up. Kinda reminds me of the Jersey city skyline. It's gonna look amazing by the end of the decade.

Foster's 551 west 21st street revealed. Quite boring too!

551 West 21st Street Reveals New Rendering, Unit Info



Quote:
551 West 21st Street, West Chelsea's new storm-ready condo development, sports a design from starchitect Norman Foster. However, according to a tipster who sent us that rendering on the right and documents filed with the Department of Buildings, the architects carrying out his vision will be Beyer Blinder Belle. An e-architect article from November clarifies that Foster is the design architect for the project while Beyer Blinder Belle is the executive architect. The new rendering, which shows the whole building, doesn't seem like much (if any) of a departure from the original one, which showed a couple sets of windows, although it's difficult to really tell.

The building itself, according to DOB records, will be 20 stories tall with 44 units, including full-floor apartments on the upper three floors and a private roof deck. There will also be 16 half-floor apartments, which, our tipster informs us, will be three- and four-bedroom, with libraries. All bedrooms will have en suite baths, including the one-bedrooms on the lower levels, which will also have separate powder rooms. The building will also house an art gallery, the 303 Gallery, on the bottom two floors. Last we heard, the pricing was going to be between $5.75 million and $17.5 million for most of the units, with the penthouses costing upwards of $35 million. The building is expected to be completed in 2015.

As long as it's not ugly, which it will not be. Foster is good at cladding.

This one could be very interesting

Quote:
By Konrad Putzier

Crowdfunding startup iFunding is about to close on the land for a $250-million condo tower on Fulton Street in Manhattan, industry sources say. Erin Wickomb’s Mavrix Group will be the developer.

The tower will be built on an assemblage of six parcels at 90-94 Fulton Street, which iFunding is scheduled to close this quarter for around $7 million, sources say. No broker was involved in the transaction.

IFunding has raised $8 million for the purchase through crowdfunding, and plans to raise another $42 million in equity once the deal has closed.

Sources say iFunding also has a commitment from a large bank for a $150-200 million construction loan. The total cost of the tower, which is expected to encompass 250,000 s/f and around 75 stories, will be around $250 million.

The tower will not only be iFunding’s largest project to date, but also its first in New York. Founded in 2012 by William Skelley and Sohin Shah, the startup has raised more than $11 million for six real-estate projects across the U.S.

iFunding works as a password-protected website. Once users have created an account, they can invest in and monitor the company’s real-estate projects online. According to iFunding, it has around 4,000 investors registered on its site. It said single investments average between $25,000 and $30,000, but have been as low as $1,000.

Crowdfunding startups have become very active lately in the wake of SEC rule changes that now allow them to raise funds from accredited investors in the U.S.

I'd love to see a 75-story version of that "Evolution 2" tower. Would provide a terrific complement to 56 Leonard.

I just think it means Parisians are into espresso while New Yorkers are into the good ole Americano coffee.

I have to admit that that one leaves me a little cold, but I'm also really not a huge fan of "twisty" towers -- heck, it took me a year or two to come around on the design of Shanghai Tower -- and I think it goes doubly for New York, which is so defined by its hard angles.

That said, this is really just the illusion of twistiness, and being able to see the underlying box is a positive for me.

Anyway, we're probably a ways away from seeing the final design, and it's clear they want to do something eye-catching. Looking forward to more official announcements!

Judge Slams The Brakes On NYU Expansion


I.M.Pei is safe...for now

Quote:
In an unexpected ruling yesterday, state judge Donna M. Mills blocked part of New York University's 1.9 million square foot expansion plans, ruling that the university needs state approval for the pieces that would impact public parks. Mills wrote in her decision that the Bloomberg administration turned over three public parks to NYU "without approval by the New York State Legislature in violation of the Public Trust Doctrine." The ruling had anti-NYU Villagers dancing in the streets applauding the death of the megaproject, but is the celebrating premature? NYU also touted the the ruling as a victory (finally! a ruling both sides can agree on!), releasing a statement from spokesman John Beckman that says, "This is a complex ruling, but the judgment is a very positive one for NYU. [...] The decision reaffirms the ULURP approval by the City Council." NYU also highlights the fact that the judge threw out five of the six claims brought by the opponents.

So why are both sides happy? NYU insists that the ruling will allow them to move forward with the project's largest building, the 1-million-square-foot Zipper Building, which is planned for construction atop the university's gym. The building runs along Mercer Street, stretching the entire block between Houston and Bleecker Streets. NYU officials told the Times that construction of the building, which may rise 26-stories, could begin in 18 months. Beckman said that NYU's next legal steps are unknown, but they are reviewing the decision to "determine the precise impact of the ruling on our ability to implement other elements of the plan."

Hell's Kitchen May Be Getting 210 Units of Affordable Housing



Quote:
Now that SPURA is finally on its way to being developed, another area once designated by the city for renewal may be following suit. The Clinton Urban Renewal Area, a six-block area in the West 50s between 10th and 11th avenues, was established in 1969, but little progress has been made there since. Now that might be about to change as developers Taconic Investment Partners and Ritterman Capital, along with the Clinton Housing Development Corporation, are seeking rezoning that would allow them to construct three new buildings containing a total of 210 affordable units and 324 market rate units. The project has already garnered the support of Community Board 4, and will now have to get approval from Borough President Gale Brewer, City Council, and Mayor de Blasio.

Shvo's at it again!

http://therealdeal.com/blog/2014/01/...-site-in-soho/

Though I'm still waiting for news re: his 100 story tower, speaking of which, we're overdue for an announcement from Mr. Wanda.

Shvo Pays $130M For Soho Site, Condos Will Likely Come Next



Quote:
The Hudson Square rezoning passed in early 2013, paving the way for new development in the neighborhood, and the Post reports that real estate legend Michael Shvo is getting in on the action. Shvo and development partner Erez Itzhaki paid $130 million for an eight-parcel site in the Hudson Square area of Soho. The 20,000-square-foot property—bound by Watts, Broome, and Varick Streets—currently consists of townhouses and vacant land, with some 280,000-square-feet of air rights. Halpern Real Estate Ventures, Bizzi & Partners, and Aronov Development are also involved with the project.

As of right, Shvo & co. could build a 290-foot-tall structure on the site, which overlooks the entrance to the Holland Tunnel. Given Shvo's real estate record, condos are likely in the future, especially since that's what the Hudson Square rezoning encourages.

[...]
Shvo is coming back with a vengeance. $130 million for a site? That's Extell or Related money. This guy may already have the site for his 100 story tower but can't say anything until the deal is 100% done.
