Manhattan West Will Have Twice As Much Open Space



Quote:
Hudson Yards gets the lion's share of attention on the west side, but just one block away, another megaproject is shaping up. It's been nearly a year since we heard anything about Brookfield's Manhattan West, but at a public meeting last night, the developer outlined plans for the project's public space. Brookfield wants to create nearly twice as much open space than what is required by the city, expanding it from the mandated 1.3 acres (49,400 square feet) to 2.11 acres (91,725 square feet).

The plan, approved by the Manhattan community board 4 land use committee, involves connecting 33rd and 31st Streets by a pedestrian strip through the length of the site and fattening a required plaza above the exposed rail yards between Dyre and Ninth Avenues. The plan would also add a leg of walkway in the southeast corner and a passageway from Dyre Avenue to Tenth Avenue along 31st Street. "We think it makes for a more interesting and desirable place for everyone involved," said Sabrina Kanner, Brookfield's senior vice president of design and construction.

Manhattan West will have two 65-story office towers and a 60-story residential tower a block east of the Hudson Yards project. The path over Dyre Avenue would connect the site with Brookfield's 450 West 33rd Street, a flattened pyramid-like building housing the Associated Press. Brookfield already started work on a deck over the exposed Amtrak railways but wants to expand the floor over Dyre to 450 West 33rd Street, which the company plans to start renovating this summer.

Ambitious Redesign of MoMA Doesn’t Spare a Notable Neighbor



Quote:
The Museum of Modern Art unveiled on Wednesday a sweeping redesign of its Midtown building, featuring a retractable glass wall, new gallery space and the opening of its entire first floor, including the beloved sculpture garden, free to the public.

It is unclear whether this grand, ambitious plan will be enough to quell protests over the long-contemplated and controversial part of the museum’s overhaul: the razing of its next-door neighbor on West 53rd Street, the noteworthy, if idiosyncratic, former home of the American Folk Art Museum.

MoMA announced in April that it planned to demolish the folk museum, despite the building’s well-regarded designers and its striking bronze facade. After protests from architects, urban planners and preservationists, MoMA officials said they would review that decision.

But museum officials said on Wednesday that keeping the folk museum, built in 2001 and bought by MoMA in 2011, was simply impossible, and they focused on the benefits of the new design that came about during the review.

[...]








The former American Folk Art Museum at 42 West 53rd is set to be demolished to make way for MoMA's glassy expansion. Curbed


...In other words, gotta make room for the new neighbor!

It will not. The SOM tower is clad in stone and granite, and Phase 2 will have a lot of stone, including towers by RAMS.

Major site for sale in Hudson Yards

The block-long parcel on Manhattan's far West Side could trade for more than $200 million and host the city's tallest skyscraper—and its neighbor might sell, too.

http://www.crainsnewyork.com/article...TATE/140119991

The Hudson Spire??



Quote:
One of the largest development sites in Manhattan's Hudson Yards that could one day be home to the city's tallest skyscraper has hit the sales market.

The Rosenthal family has hired Massey Knakal Realty Services Chairman Bob Knakal and his colleague James Nelson to market a parcel it owns stretching from West 35th to West 34th streets between 10th Avenue and what will be a grand new thoroughfare running through the neighborhood called Hudson Boulevard. That parcel can accommodate as much as 1.2 million square feet of space, including about 200,000 square feet of residential development.

Also, the site sits directly next to another similarly sized piece of land owned by Sherwood Equities, which for years has planned to develop a single super-tower on the two parcels in partnership with the Rosenthals. Now that the Rosenthals are selling, Ryan Nelson (no relation to James), a senior vice president at Sherwood Equities who manages the company's acquisitions and sales, said it, too, will consider selling its parcel to either the buyer of the Rosenthal land or another purchaser.

Together the two sites could allow for an 1,800-foot mega-tower nearly 2.5 million square feet in size—what would be the tallest, and one of the largest, buildings in the city. Most of that structure would have to be for commercial use under the area's zoning, either office or hotel space, but it also could contain a substantial residential component as large as 400,000 square feet.

For now, Mr. Knakal and James Nelson are focused on selling just the Rosenthals' half of the land, which could trade for more than $200 million and can host up to 1.2 million square feet of development as well as reach 1,800 feet in height.

Those parcels are located at 435 10th Ave., 507 W. 34th St. and 510-28 W. 35th St.

"We're offering the site up to the whole world to tell us what they want to do," James Nelson said. "It's one of the highest zoned sites in the city and it affords a host of possibilities, from building one big building to two or more buildings that include residential, hotel, office and retail space."

Ryan Nelson said that the two sites together, however, would appeal to major developers who want to have a presence in the Hudson Yards neighborhood, where millions of square feet of development are either underway or in the planning. "Together these sites are one of the best commercial development parcels in the area," he said.

Sherwood Equities is not actively marketing its site, but is likely to keep tabs on the sale of the Rosenthal site in the case that a buyer there would want to put together the whole block.
I'll just quote this puppy AGAIN!!!

An 1,800 ft tower would be a great signature element for Hudson Yards. I can't imagine a developer not capitalizing on the full potential of the site.

You can't?

I definitely can, especially with the height-chopping precedents set by 30 HY, 217 w. 57th and others. This is a reach, but one we should still hope against hope for. Has the potential to be truly skyline-defining stuff.

The full potential of the site is 2.5 million sq. ft. not the 1,800 ft. building height. But a selling point for residences above 1,300 ft. is absolutely unimpeded views.

True but I don't think you can base that opinion on those 2 examples. For all we know, the height of 30HY might still be the same cause the figures provided by Related have not changed on the website. As far as 217 w57, the design is still in flux and Barnett even indicated that it could be taller than the height they provided, so let's wait for new info on those towers before we can make assumptions.
I agree with Desertpunk on this, I think whoever gets hold of this site will maximize it based on the trend of other developments in the city. I'm curious to see which part of the city will get to claim the tallest building in the city, Midtown, downtown or HY??

Yet another redesign for Atelier2:

Midtown West's Atelier 2 Updates Look, Reveals New Renders



Quote:
Moinian's long-stalled Atelier 2 tower on the west side came back to life last year, and now NY YIMBY has a few new images of what the completed residential tower will look like. The facade is still a bluish glass, but the 57-story tower now has a more simplified top with integrated mechanicals. A few detail shots also show the larger retail podium, which stretch across most of the block. It will hold a whopping 1,100 rental apartments, making it the biggest in the city. That is, of course, until TF Cornerstone builds its colossal development up on West 57th Street. Atelier 2 should be complete by 2015.

Harlem's Tallest Buildings Will Look Like a Sci-Fi Castle



Quote:
The new designs for 1800 Park Avenue, the development formerly known as Harlem Park, were recently unveiled at a Community Board 11 meeting, and let's just say they're a good deal more interesting than developer Ian Bruce Eichner's other big project that's currently in the works. Eichner, who seems to have a penchant for very tall buildings, has tapped architects ODA for the design of the two towers that, at 32 stories and 320 feet, will be Harlem's tallest. The rows of setbacks appear to be ODA's new thing but, in the case of 1800 Park, they look particularly odd next to the boxy neighboring tower.

The Community Boards concerns focused not on the height, but on the amount of affordable housing that the towers would provide. The project had originally committed to the 80/20 plan, with 380 market-rate rentals and 120 affordable ones, but now the numbers have changed, and Eichner's Continuum Company is guaranteeing only 70 affordable apartments out of 650 total units (11 percent). The developers are still trying to find financing for the $415 million project.

3WTC Financed; Ready To Build



Quote:
The once-stalled 3 World Trade Center is making great strides in a short amount of time. The planned 80-story tower got a major boost late last year when Silverstein Properties signed media investment managers GroupM to be the anchor tenant. The deal opened up $1.3 billion in financing, but today the building received another round of crucial financing that finally closes the gap between reality and the building's lofty construction budget.

Currently 3WTC, designed by Richard Rogers, stands as a seven-story podium. Last we checked, its estimated completion date was 2017, but the official timeline says 2016.
