The number of 1,000'+ buildings in NYC is about to see a dramatic increase;
it will double in the next two years, and possibly reach 20 by 2020.

Hudson Spire Brokerbabble



Quote:
HUDSON YARDS—More details have emerged about the block-long development site near Hudson Yards that just hit the market. The gist is that whatever tower ends up rising there could be giant. By which we mean, up to 100 floors and 1,800 feet high, with 1.2 million square feet of residential, commercial/retail, and/or hotel space. Massey Knakal, which is selling the parcel, issued a release today: http://www.masseyknakal.com/pressrel...4216605843.pdf (warning: PDF!) stating that "Hudson Spire" has an official address is 435 Tenth Avenue, facing the yet-to-be-created Hudson Boulevard, and runs from 501-507 West 34th Street to 510-528 West 35th Street. "Rarely does an opportunity become available to build a city's tallest tower, especially in New York City, which is known for its iconic buildings. The Hudson Spire could one day become the tallest building in the US, surpassing One World Trade Center," MK crows in its release. "An observation deck would be the ultimate addition."

100 Franklin St. Developers Strap On Brick Kneepads, Win LPC Approval


100 Franklin St. now utterly glassless

Quote:
Today, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved plans for a new building at 100 Franklin Street, a development they sent back to the drawing board in November. Peter Guthrie of the development and design team at DDG presented a completely different design, stripped of all the elements that had once made Tribecans seethe. "I think this is extraordinary and exhilarating," one member of the commission said about the changes. "This is now resolved in the right way." The original iteration featured a slew of materials—fritted glass, metal, recovered brick—but a more simplified version won over the commission. The new building, which the commission said fits more with the neighborhood, features brown bricks, as well a Romanesque arch on the ground floor and Jack arches throughout the fašade.
The "historically inappropriate" original proposal:

Rags To Riches In LIC As Hotel Deal Nears



Quote:
Two three-story buildings in the heart of Queens Plaza North are expected to be put on the market this week with an asking price of $18.1 million. The two brick buildings—located at 41-21 and 41-23 29th Street– are tucked between two sites that are being developed into glitzy hotels. A Hilton Garden Inn is being constructed at 29-21 Queens Plaza North, while a Marriott Hotel is going up at 29-07 Queens Plaza North. The two modest brick buildings are owned by Indian immigrant Lachman Rattu, who bought them in the late 1990s, after owning a deli in the Queens Plaza area for years. He got his start in the United States working as a delivery boy for a Greek restaurant in Queens Plaza in 1984.

Rattu had been running an employment agency called LIC Staffing Services outof one of the buildings–and an Indian restaurant, called Rocky’s Food, out of the other. He closed both businesses last year. But Rattu has been the big beneficiary of the upswing in Long Island City neighborhood—as well as the massive zoning changes. When he bought the two buildings for less than $1 million (with a combined site area of 2,727), the zoning on the sites permitted a floor area ratio of 5.0.

However, the area continued to get up-zoned and became part of the Long Island City special district, according to Tom Winter, of Tom Winter Architect, who is working on behalf of Rattu. “The FAR is now 12, and he is able to build a zoning floor area of 32,724 sqf—up from 13,635 sqf. [when he bought it].” “We believe the property is best suited for a hotel developer,” said Steven Christmann, a real estate broker with Sotheby’s International, who is selling the property. ”We are in an area where there are several international hotels and next to the Hilton and Marriott developments,” he said.

[...]
What may be in store:

New site identified for development along 57th street! Can be pretty tall.

Rizzoli is a good bookstore in a nice building imo.. but they can re-locate elsewhere.

New Construction Threatens Beloved 57th St. Rizzoli Bookshop
http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2014/0...i_bookshop.php





Quote:
As if there was some kind of bizarre competition to stack 57th Street with new developments at a breakneck pace, it appears yet another one is on its way. The Times reports that the limestone mansion at 31 West 57th Street, which currently houses the beloved Rizzoli bookstore on its ground floor, might not be long for this world.

A developer duo of LeFrak and Vornado Realty Trust apparently told the shop that it planned to demolish the 109-year-old lowrise, along with two of its similarly sized neighbors, to make way for a new development.

Though they didn't disclose the size or scope of the project, given the myriad megatowers rising right now along that thoroughfare-in-flux, we can imagine it'll be tall. Folks are already mourning the bookstore's imminent ouster—the place is beautiful—though one source told the Times that the developers hoped to find Rizzoli a new home (it's already moved once before, also due to a real estate boom!) and are deciding between a residential and commercial tower for the site.

There are no demolition permits currently on file for the building yet, so whatever lies ahead may take awhile.

Next comes the fun part: preservation groups have already spoken out, and archicritics (who don't love 57th Street's towers-on-the-move and the shadows they might cast, calling for more public review of these projects) will likely join the fray once we know exactly what will rise on the combo-parcel between Fifth and Sixth avenues. More intel? Please hit up the

Well this one looks like the most beautiful tower in the works in NY, or even perhaps all around the world. Interiors and some elements of the entrance are a bit weird, but overall it's just amazing. I wish NY embraced that style a bit more rather than doing these glossy blue-glassed boxes.

Trio Of Zig-Zagging Rental Towers Now Rising In Jersey City
http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2014/0...ersey_city.php



Quote:
Westward-facing Manhattanites will soon be treated to a new addition on the Jersey City skyline: a trio of kind-of-cantilevering apartment towers. Ground broke today on the first building, which will rise 69-stories to be the tallest residential building in New Jersey (isn't that cute?). Called URL Harborside, the project is being developed by Mack-Cali Realty Corporation, along with partner Ironstate Development Company. "URL" stands for "Urban Ready Living," which a press release says is a concept developed by Ironstate to "provide people with innovative housing that maximizes space, reduces energy consumption, is more environmentally sustainable, offers close and easy access to public transportation, and provides public areas that foster community." The buildings, which look like blue boxes that were haphazardly stacked, were designed by Dutch firm Concrete, so it goes without saying that they'll have plenty of flood-proofing features (that's pretty much what the Dutch do best).
Quote:
The first tower, named URL Harborside 1, will hold 763 rental units, and when all three towers are complete by mid-2016, there will be a total of 2,358 apartments. No word on pricing or what types of units they will be, but the architects' website provides a few more details:

The towers of 220m. and 66 stories high consist of 2500 apartments, commercial space and a parking garage. [...] The plan is part of a new housing concept developed by concrete, based on affordable, compact but spatial, partly furnished rental apartments. The different types of apartments are flexible in use and therefore adaptable to any lifestyle. Common facilities such as a lobbycafe, gym, roof gardens and terraces provide space for neighbours to meet and create a local community. The project started with the creation of an identity for this new housing brand, resulting in the architectural design of the buildings.
Clearly, there will also be an outdoor swimming pool.

Sad to see these wonderful limestones go. After Vornado's 220 CPS reveal today, anything's possible here....

Yeah. It'd be cool if they could preserve at least one of the facades and build whatever tower goes here in the middle of the lot -- a la Steinway. One of those arches could make for a gorgeous entrance.
