470 Vanderbilt Ave. Finally Gets Moving


BIG in Brooklyn

Quote:
Permits for GFI Capital Resources Group's 12-story mixed-use project at 470 Vanderbilt Avenue were approved back in 2009, but nothing ever happened at the site, which is located just a few blocks from the Barclays Center and Atlantic Yards. This week, the local community board re-approved the plans, and according to Brownstoner, it seems like things are actually going to happen. The property holds a very grey, very monolithic structure on the southern end near Atlantic Avenue, and the new building will sit at the north end of the site, along Fulton Street (currently a parking lot). The renderings look the same as what was originally reveal nearly five years ago. The project will be a two-building complex with 376 apartments (85 of which will be affordable), 616,555-square-feet of commercial space, and nearly 400 underground parking spaces.

Is This 59-Story Tower Replacing The Roseland Ballroom?



Quote:
In November, it was revealed that the site of the now-closed Roseland Ballroom will be replaced by 50-something tower designed by the architecture firm Cetra/Ruddy. Well, BuzzBuzzHome did some poking around on the firm's website and found renderings that might be for said tower. Cetra/Ruddy doesn't give an address, but their site says the 59-story tower is located in the Theater District, and it will be 468,300-square-feet large, just a bit bigger than the previously reported 450,000-square-feet. It would have 426 units, ranging from studios to three-bedrooms, with a four-bedroom penthouse. Amenities include a rooftop terrace and an outdoor pool, while a three-story base will host retail.

Nice. I like the slightly rounded coners of the windows, gives it a nice neo-futurist look.

Time Warner officially announces Hudson Yards move, Columbus Circle sale


http://www.businessweek.com/news/201...os-dot-venture

Quote:
Time Warner Inc. officially announced the planned move of its media headquarters from Columbus Circle to the Related Companies’ Hudson Yards development on the far West Side.

Time Warner also confirmed the $1.3 billion purchase of its current home by a Related-led group of investors. Middle Eastern sovereign wealth fund Abu Dhabi Investment Authority and Singaporean wealth fund GIC are reportedly investing in the purchase, though the exact stake of both investors is not certain. GIC pledged $400 million to the acquisition in November, but that amount is reportedly still being negotiated.

Time Warner plans to consolidate its executive offices, as well as its HBO, Turner Broadcasting and Warner Bros. divisions in a brand new 1,227-foot tower at 10th Avenue and 33rd Street in 2019, according to the New York Times. In the meantime, the media behemoth will remain in its current location, where it will lease from Related for about five years, or until the new tower is complete, according to earlier reports.

Odd Exoskeletal Hotel May Be Coming To Brooklyn



Quote:
The architects at HWKN have never been afraid to be zany. Amorphous alien-like imagined brownstone? Check. MoMA PS1's blue, spiky, air-purifying art installation? Check. But we spotted these bonkers renderings for a new hotel in Williamsburg on the firm's official site, jaws literally dropped. It's made of brick, overlaid with a steel exosteleton of sorts, plus the outlined framework for a chimney or bell tower that isn't actually there. It's overhung with various greenery including what appears to be a very erect piece of topiary. It's possible that only half the building has actual windows, and one facade is lined with balconies. The allusion to the area's industrial past is clear and commendable, but it certainly is an, um, ambitious design.

The total size of the project is listed at 50,000 square feet, and the developer is Heritage Equity Partners. The Midtown-based real estate investment firm has bought up multiple properties in the area, and The Real Deal reported in 2012 that Heritage was planning a 160-room boutique hotel for its parcel, purchased for $4.5 million, at 96 Wythe Avenue—just one block from the Wythe Hotel's success story.

The fact that the out-there designs above and below are for the 96 Wythe site remains unconfirmed by the firm and developer, but HWKN's renderings place the Wythe Hotel and other buildings nearby in the exact configuration that would make sense if that were the hotel's address.









The site will be in an industrial area that is rapidly filling in with residential and other developments:

West Village Church Plans 15-Story Building On Barrow Street



Quote:
The Church of St. Luke in the Fields is joining the recent trend of nonprofits turning toward real estate development to beef up their bank accounts. The Villager reports that the West Village church wants to build a 15-story, 46-unit apartment building on its property at the corner of Greenwich and Barrow Streets. Church officials plan to grant developer Toll Brothers a 99-year lease to the site at 100 Barrow Street, and the venture would fund expansion of St. Luke's school, as well as a new mission building. During a community board meeting, the church pointed out that the 70,000-square-foot building they are proposing is much less than the 200,000-square-feet that's allowed under current zoning. The project would also be developed under the 80/20 affordable housing program, but board members still weren't pleased. The brick-and-glass design was not liked, and neither was the 153-foot height, even though it's shorter than the building across the street.

The church hopes to start construction on the tower and two-story school expansion this year, but first the plans need a stamp of approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission, as the sit sits within the Greenwich Village Historic District...

The plans go before the LPC on February 4.

Lol. People shouldn't expect much change under DeBlasio based on his record when it comes to Real Estate, besides, he kept mostly the same people from the Bloomberg administration at City Planning.

It was expected. Only the truly ignorant were running around screaming about DeBlasio being a Socialist and whatnot

New Marriott Edition Hotel In Times Square To Emphasize Ian Schrager Upscale Chic

Quote:
The 39-story tower will bring epic change to Times Square’s north end. It will rise on the northeast corner of Seventh Avenue at 47th Street, at the top of the “bow-tie” and across the street from 2 Times Square with its famous Coca-Cola sign. The rendering on this page shows the entire tower, crowned by the Edition sign, for the first time.

It will be Manhattan’s second Edition, following the planned completion of the first in 2015 at the landmarked Clock Tower at 5 Madison Ave. The “luxury lifestyle” Edition brand, which boutique-hotel wizard Schrager is creating in collaboration with Marriott, was conceived as Marriott’s answer to competitors attuned to younger, hipper clientele — especially Starwood Hotels and Resorts’ W line.

There are so many big new projects for Manhattan, including about a dozen supertalls, I've been wondering, isn't traffic going to be a nightmare? Are they doing anything to improve infrastructure to handle the increased traffic once all the huge projects have been built?

Aren't traffic a nightmare already? Part of the charm with the city.

Manhattan's population hasn't increased that much. Meanwhile, many of the superluxury supertalls going up will have few units, many of which will not be regularly occupied. The heavy development going into Hudson Yards and the West Side are being spurred by major transportation improvements such as the 7 subway extension and a future new Amtrak tunnel. The 2nd Ave. subway project is also making the Midtown East Rezoning's new towers more readily accessible.

160 Madison Ave, Gets $210 Million In Financing



Quote:
New renderings of the long-stalled development at 160 Madison Avenue have been posted at Metal Yapi, which is apparently the company that will be fabricating the skyscraper’s facade. SLCE is the architect, and the design is utterly and completely underwhelming; unfortunately, 160 Madison looks to be a completely generic glass box, and apparently setting the tower off at an angle relative to the street is the only ‘creativity’ the architects could muster. The developer is JD Carlisle, and 160 Madison will be residential.

If the renderings are accurate, the real problem at 160 Madison is the tower’s treatment of the neighborhood street-wall. Madison Avenue has one of the best, most intact street-walls in New York, especially in the vicinity of this tower – yet the above images show 160 Madison sitting atop a meager two-story podium. Not only is the tower component of 160 Madison disappointing; the base is actually offensive, and would be very detrimental to the aesthetics and urban fabric of the neighborhood.

New DOB permits for 160 Madison were denied on Tuesday, and there is a definite dissonance between the 31-floor building on-file and the tower depicted in the renderings, which is roughly forty stories in height. The original plan for the site called for an Ismael Leyva-designed tower – which continues to live on the firm’s website – but that design has seemingly been shelved.

[...]
