Fortis Property Group Confirms 50-Story Tower For Seaport



Quote:
Seaport residents are busy fighting Howard Hughes' plans to build a tower on the waterfront, but another developer has confirmed his plans to build a different 50-story tower in the neighborhood. In an interview this week with the Times (h/t Buzz Buzz Home), Jonathan Landau, chief executive of the Fortis Property Group, made clear that they are definitely going to erect a tower on the Maiden Lane site they bought in September. From the Times:

Quote:
We've got another large project in downtown Manhattan, on Maiden Lane, which is a 250,000-square-foot development site. We bought it a few months ago. It's a residential tower with an adjacent hotel. The residential tower is waterfront; it's going to be 52 stories or so and have about 95 units. We're just going to build the residential tower and we're selling off the hotel site. I think we could probably project between $2,000 and $3,000 a square foot. We hope to sell by early next summer. We'll start construction in the next four or five months.

I have a feeling this one is gonna turn out quite interesting. This is the infamous Shvo after all, he's probably looking to come back with a bang.

http://news.buzzbuzzhome.com/2014/01...th-avenue.html

Go to sleep, sheep: Construction starts at Michael Shvo’s 239 10th Avenue

Construction has started at Michael Shvo’s condo project at 239 Tenth Avenue.

Shvo partnered with Victor Homes to buy the Getty gas station at West 24th Street for $23.5 million. The property traded for almost $800 per buildable square foot, a record for a development site in Chelsea, the Wall Street Journal reported.

In September, Shvo turned the site into public art of the fleecy kind — “Sheep Station,” by surrealist Francois-Xavier Lalanne, featured epoxy stone and bronze sheep, pictured below:


Now, the white picket fence is no more, and the livestock have left for greener pastures. But fret not — the condo project will be “something that will combine art, luxury residential, design and architecture,” Shvo told the Journal. “We will have river views and we will be looking over the High Line.”

Another point from the article that I think is worth emphasizing about this project in Times Square:

"When opened in 2017, it will have ... a huge, 18,000 square-foot high-def LED sign wrapping around the corner (previous: 12,700 square feet)."

"William Macklowe Company plans to clear out the site of Bowlmor Lanes in the East Village to begin a condominium conversion by the spring, the blog EV Grieve reported, citing an unnamed source"

not what the article says

The article manages to contradict itself in a single sentence. "Clear out the site" suggests demolition. "Condo conversion" does not. Bad reporting.

i agree,

but to "clear out the site" might also imply to clear it out of it's current occupants in order to do a "condo conversion"

Construction is progressing at 24 John Street, which will be a 21-story hotel; the architect of record is Gerald Caliendo, and the developer is Westbury Realty Associates LLC. The project is a redevelopment and vertical expansion of an existing commercial building.
......

Permits indicate 24 John Street will have a total of 128 rooms, and the project is expected to be completed in the spring of 2015. All considered, the development will be a marked improvement over peers in Midtown and surrounding neighborhoods, and barring a disaster of a facade, the building will integrate seamlessly into its Financial District surroundings. At only 206 feet in height, the hotel will be invisible on the skyline, as well.

61-01 Junction Boulevard - image from Google Maps
Quote:
New permits indicate Vornado is proceeding with plans to develop a 24-story and 288-foot residential tower at 61-01 Junction Boulevard in Queens, atop an existing commercial structure. The architect of record is SLCE.

The tower will contain approximately 290,000 square feet of space, with a total of 314 units. The development is located in Rego Park, which has relatively few high-rises; 61-01 Junction Boulevard will be on the larger side for the neighborhood, and will become a major presence on the Queens skyline, given its isolation.

61-01 Junction Boulevard will be built atop a mall;
.....

The permits are fresh, so work is just about to begin; no completion date has been announced.

Parking lot near Madison Square Garden up for huge-development grabs
By: Joyce Chen December 12, 2013

Massey Knakal is marketing the 11,110-square-foot lot at 415 Eighth Avenue, on the corner of West 31st Street.

The seller, Savanna Partners, has owned the property since 2007; partner Nicholas Bienstock told The New York Post that the firm “can now sell it to someone who can build condos or residential rentals.”

The former parking lot comes with 87,644 buildable square feet, according to the Massey Knakal listing. The site, located across the street from the Moynihan Station Project and Penn Station, has about 49 feet of frontage on Eighth Avenue and 137 feet on West 31st Street. The parcel also runs through the block to 30th Street, where it contains another 25 feet of frontage.

Massey Knakal’s Robert Knakal told The Post that the offering could be combined with adjacent buildings to assemble a larger site for a retail-residential project of more than 200,000 square feet. According to Knakal, the site could also receive some of the 1.5 million square feet of transferable development rights available from the Port Authority’s Moynihan Station redevelopment.

415 Eighth Avenue is one block to east of Brookfield’s $4.5 billion Manhattan West project, which will include 5.4 million square feet of office, residential, retail and outdoor space. The Brookfield development will feature two office towers reaching up to 62 stories, as well as a 1.5-acre public outdoor area.
......
The possibilities:

Flushing's long-suffering RKO Keith's Theater has sold, yet again, to a new developer who has taken over the plans to turn the historic building into rental apartments and retail space, the Post reports. Developer JK Equities paid $30 million for the 85-year-old cinema. The building will be 17 stories tall and will include 357 apartments, 17,000 square feet of retail space and a community facility for seniors. The original three-story lobby, designated an interior city landmark in 1983, will have to be retained.

New Residential Tower Planned for Former Strip Club Site in Rego Park
By Ewa Kern-Jedrychowska on December 20, 2013 3:59pm


A developer is planning to build a residential tower on the site of a former notorious strip club in Rego Park.
Quote:
QUEENS — A Long Island-based developer wants to build a residential tower where a notorious strip club once stood in Rego Park.

The 15-story building is planned for 92-77 Queens Boulevard, where Goldfingers — a strip club that closed in 1999 after numerous complaints from residents and elected officials — was located.

Atlas Projects Inc. paid about $40 million for a 98-year lease to develop the site near the Long Island Expressway, said Christopher Okada, president of Okada & Co., who represents the developer.

The vacant building that once housed the strip club will be soon demolished, along with an adjacent car wash that recently closed, Okada said.

The new building will be located only two blocks away from Rego Park Center, where another developer, Vornado Realty Trust, is planning to build a 24-story residential building atop the shopping mall.
......

The details about the new building are still being worked out, but Okada said the 105,000 square-foot structure could include about 100 apartments and up to two stories of retail space.

The major overhaul for the largest tract of city-owned vacant land in the southern part of the borough, the five-building, 985-unit mixed-income development—bordered by Bergen Avenue, Brook Avenue and East 149th Street—will henceforth be known as La Central.
....
Tallest Building:


Quote:
Building A: 211 affordable apartments; approximately 48,000 square foot YMCA-community facility; a diabetes prevention program operated by Montefiore Medical Center; rooftop farm; approximately 19,000 square feet of new retail space.
· Building B: 279 affordable apartments; approximately 24,000 square feet of retail space, including restaurant space; cellar level garage with approximately 138 parking spaces.
· Building C: 137 affordable apartments; Music Has No Enemies (MHNE) which will occupy approximately 5,000 square feet of community space consisting of a recording studio and curate workshops and open the recording studio to projects for and by the community.
· Building D: 160 affordable apartments; 10,000 square foot mental health clinic operated by Comunilife that will work with veterans living within the development and individuals within the community.
· Building E: 198 affordable apartments; Bronx Astronomy Tower and Lab - a rooftop telescope to be used by the Bronx High School of Science; daycare facility.
· The approximately 7,000 square-foot triangular vacant lot at the intersection of Brook and Bergen Avenues will be developed as open space, accessible to the general public.

Formerly known as the Bronxchester Urban Renewal sites, the winners of the RFP were BRP Development Corporation, Hudson Companies Inc., Common Ground, Comunilife, The Kretchmer Companies, ELH Mgmt LLC, and the YMCA. The project still has to go through the ULURP official review process before construction can begin, but nonetheless ground is projected to get broken in 2015.

Although he claims he is in the twilight of his career, prolific hotel developer Sam Chang is continuing a string of purchases. Most recently, he paid $26.5 million for a 53,172-square-foot parking garage late last week, in order to build a hotel, he confirmed to The Real Deal.

Chang, who said earlier this month he intends to retire within the next year, bought out the long-term lease on the site at 346 West 40th Street between Eighth and Ninth avenues. Peach Parking Corporation held a triple-net lease on the six-story, 250-space garage that would have expired in February 2030.
