Rendering for Building at Corner of Nevins and Schermerhorn Streets

A reader sent in this rendering of the new building planned for the empty lot at 319 Schermerhorn at the corner of Nevins Street downtown, which he found on the construction fence. It looks like plans for the building have changed slightly: It will be 18 stories, not 20, and will have 61 units, according to permits.

It’s still residential; across the street two hotels are going up. The empty lot was purchased by an LLC in January for $10,765,364, according to PropertyShark. It is supposed to wrap in spring 2015, according to the sign, but there is a partial stop work order in effect on the property.

Manhattan garage owner The Brauser Group is erecting a new building at one of its parking properties in the Financial District.

A 23-story mixed-use development will rise at 54 Fulton Street, on the corner of Cliff Street, according to a plan exam application filed December 23rd. The architect of record is Goldstein, Hill & West. The 120-unit building will measure a total of 101,736 square feet.

Poon is designing a new 21-story hotel at 132 West 27th Street in Chelesa.

The site is currently a 120-foot-wide parking lot at 132-142 West 27th Street. The 124,934-square-foot hotel will have 313 rooms, according to the plan exam application filed December 23rd.

Artimus Construction purchased the lot between Sixth and Seventh avenues for $35 million in July, The Real Deal reported.

The parking lot operator has a lease through March 2014. The property, which originally asked $37.5 million, went on the market in October 2012, according to The Real Deal.

The Garment District is getting cloaked in another Gene Kaufman-designed hotel at 326 West 37th Street.

The 22-story hotel, located between Eighth and Ninth avenues, will have 240 rooms. The project will measure 88,860 square feet and rise 257 feet, according to the plan exam application filed January 2nd. There will be a gym and first-floor eatery.

The site is currently a parking lot. Investment firm Bridgeton Holdings is listed on the Department of Buildings permit.

However, prolific hotel developer Sam Chang is reportedly in contract to buy the property for $30 million-plus, according to The Real Deal. The transaction is expected to close by this month. In December 2013, Chang told The Real Deal that he had no immediate development plans for the site, identified as 326-330 West 37th: “The market is turning around, so it’s time to buy something for future development,” Chang said.

A spacious convention center and 25-story hotel and apartment complex will soon rise on the site of a Corona car dealership near Citi Field.

Fleet Financial Group plans to break ground on the $200 million project in June. The Flushing-based group purchased the 1.67-acre DiBlasi Ford dealership, at 112-21 Northern Blvd., for $17 million last month.

The site sits across the Grand Central Parkway from Citi Field, where a $3 billion mega-mall and housing complex is planned for Willets Point.

333 West 38th Street, image via Kaufman's website
Quote:
Another Kaufman-designed project is rising at 333 West 38th Street; permits indicate the structure will soon stand 21 floors, and contain a total of 79 hotel rooms. The renderings were posted on Kaufman’s website; the site’s developer is Optima Real Estate LLC.

333 West 38th Street is ‘ideal’ for hotel development given the site’s history; the land is contaminated, and the new building will sit atop a slab of concrete 3.5 feet thick, which also comes with a ‘vapor barrier’ to prevent any human exposure to toxic elements. The full clean-up plan is at NYC’s office of environmental remediation, and also mentions that the plot will be entirely paved over, with no “open space, or areas not covered by concrete.”

In terms of design, the 21-story structure is relatively benign; the five-story base will be equal to the site’s last structure, keeping the street-wall intact. The tower portion is also quite slender; at just over twenty floors, it will be nearly invisible, though coverings for the water towers will slightly extend the development’s verticality.

With permits approved, completion is likely in the 2015 timeframe.

The Real Deal reports that Stillman Development plans to scrap what's currently two non-exciting, low-rise commercial buildings and build "a 210,000-square-foot mixed-use tower with retail on the first four floors of the building and high-end residential units up top."

Amassing the land to make room for this "skyscraper" wasn't easy. The seller of 151 East 86th Street is Town International, the company that owns the New York Sports Club there—which, it so happens, has been promised a lease in the new project. Town International netted $82 million in the sale. Meanwhile, the corner site at 161 East 86th Street was a little harder to come by, with Stillman entering into a rather complicated long-term lease agreement with its owner, Sol Goldman, that allows him to build condos above the retail space. Stillman says the building will be complete "in four years" time.


Deal Struck for Upper East Side Condo Development

Developers have finalized a complicated part of a deal that will allow them to build a 21-story luxury condominium tower on the Upper East Side.

Stillman Development International LLC and its partner, Ceruzzi Properties LLC–which is based in Fairfield, Conn.–signed an agreement with Sol Goldman Investments to lease the lower two floors of 147 E. 86th St. and purchase the air rights, an official said. The joint venture is also in contract to purchase the adjacent 151 E. 86th St.

The deal allows the joint venture to complete the footprint for a 210,000 square-foot residential building at the corner of 86th Street and Lexington Avenue with retail on the first four floors, said Matt Crosby, director of Eastern Consolidated, which represented both the buyers and sellers.
Mr. Crosby declined to disclose the terms of the lease and air rights deal.

Hammers and drills. Bulldozers and trucks. That is what has been rolling in and out of 44-35 and 44-51 Purves Street in the last month, adding to one of the most heavily constructed blocks in all of New York City. The Criterion Group had originally planned to use the two lots here for a pair of large rental buildings. Purves I was slated to be a 22-story, 121-unit residential tower while Purves II was supposed to be 28-story, 158-unit tower. The lots were flipped this summer for $32,000,000, but according to Department of Building permits, the new owner plans on doing… the exact same thing!

Construction crews have been working non-stop since November on structural, foundation, excavation and shoring work. Here is the latest on their progress:

Naftali Group made waves when it snatched up an Upper West Side site at 206-210 West 77th Street last summer for a crazy-big $55.5 million. In fact, interested condo buyers were calling the developer before the land sale even closed, The New York Observer reported.

And now, permits have arrived for the proposed 18-story luxury building between Amsterdam Avenue and Broadway.

The 80,802-square-foot project will have 2,317 square feet of retail on the ground floor, according to the plan exam application filed January 9th. Goldstein, Hill & West is the architect of record.

According to Naftali Group’s website, the condominiums will consist of “approximately 30 large three- and four-bedroom units.”

The second and third floors will contain duplexes, and floors 4 through 12 will have two apartments per level. The units on levels 13 to 18 will be full-floor residences. Amenities include storage, bike storage, fitness center and a roof deck.

The 75-foot-wide site, currently a six-story, 250-space parking garage, is one of the few prime development sites left in the Upper West Side.

Developers plan to break ground on the $850 million housing and commercial project in March; 5.5-acre development to include a YMCA

BY CLARE TRAPASSO / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
THURSDAY, JANUARY 9, 2014, 5:37 PM



Local businesses worry that Flushing Commons, a residential and commercial development in downtown Flushing, could hurt their bottom lines. The $850 million development is to be built on a 1,100-spot, municipal parking lot that merchants say is heavily used by their customers.
Quote:
.....
Flushing Commons, an $850 million residential and commercial development, is slated to go up on a 1,100-space, municipal parking lot in the spring. The city sold the 5.5-acre lot for $20 million on Dec. 30 to developers.
....

The first phase of the development, to be completed in 2017, will create 150 condos. The second phase, to be finished by 2021, will include 450 condos, a new YMCA, 1.5-acre plaza and ampitheatre and commercial space.

When completed, Flushing Commons will also have a 1,600-spot parking garage.

Though no designs have been made public, zoning diagrams are on-file with the Department of Buildings, and depict a fairly typical layout; the building’s lower levels will meet the street-wall, and a series of staggered setbacks will characterize the upper levels. As is typical with new office construction, the ceiling heights will be impressive, and 34 East 51st Street will stand 296 feet tall.
....

With foundations complete, the superstructure for 34 East 51st Street should be going vertical shortly, and completion is expected in January of 2015.

232 Seventh Avenue pre-demolition -- image from Google Maps

Quote:
Renderings are up for a new 16-story and 49-unit mixed-use project at 232 Seventh Avenue. The existing structures are about to be demolished, with permits for their removal already approved; the developer is ‘Chelsea 7 JV LLC’, and the architect is C3D.

The new 232 Seventh Avenue will be a major improvement over the site’s current occupants, which are fairly run-down. The design will enhance Seventh Avenue’s street-wall, and the first eleven floors are flush with the sidewalk, and feature a masonry facade. After a setback, the next five floors are characterized by large balconies, and masonry is replaced by metallic cladding. The first floor will be retail, and the entirety of the project will measure 53,000 square feet.
.....

Completion dates for the new building have not been released, but the 2016 timeframe would seem likely.

308 East 59th Street today -- image via Google

Quote:
A new 16-story building will soon rise at 308 East 59th Street; the property will be a mix of residential and commercial space. The site’s developer is ABS Partners, and C3D is designing the project, with a page on the firm’s website giving additional details.

308 East 59th Street was bought in 2011 for $2.5 million, and development rights allow a 25,000 square foot structure. C3D’s rendering depicts an angular cantilever over an adjacent low-rise at 306 East 59th Street, and the project will certainly bring some modern flare to a neighborhood characterized by dingy low-rises and dated mid-century towers.

Whether the 25,000 square foot figure accounts for additional air rights from 306 East 59th Street remains to be seen, as no permits are on-file; thus, 308 East 59th Street is likely still in the planning phase, although the potential of the lot is obvious — and permits for interior demolition have been filed. Certainly, C3D’s design would be a great improvement for the neighborhood, while also proving that small-scale contemporary designs can exist beyond West Chelsea.

After upzonings in the neighborhood, the parcels now have a FAR of 12 with a zoning floor area of 32,724 square feet.

Revamped Queens Plaza lures hotels, residential development
Julie Strickland January 15, 2014 05:20PM


Aerial view of Queens Plaza
Quote:
A $45 million overhaul of Queens Plaza has led to a development boom around the new crosswalks, bike pathways, sidewalks and 1.5-acre park that the city recently built. The “gateway to Long Island City” was a den of prostitution and drug deals not long ago.

More than 5,000 apartments have either been added or are in process within two blocks of the plaza, city officials told the New York Times. Two hotels — a 16-story, 183-room Hilton Garden Inn and a 31-story Marriott with 160 hotel rooms and 135 rental apartments — are also under construction and will overlook a new park dubbed Dutch Kills Green.

A building plan was filed for a 14-story, 65-room Hotel Vetiver at 41-32 27th Street in November, and Developer Heatherwood Communities is also building a 58-story residential tower at 27-03 42nd Road, by Queens Plaza South.

Bringing new office buildings to the area, however, has lately proven more of a challenge. The Bloomberg administration aimed to turn Queens Plaza into the next Jersey City — which has attracted businesses like investment bank Goldman Sachs and now Forbes — but commercial brokers told the Times that such a renaissance is years away. That said, some commercial leases have been inked, including a 200,000-square-foot headquarters for airline JetBlue, in the Brewster Building at 27-01 Queens Plaza North, and the fully-leased 22-story tower 2 Gotham Center on Queens Plaza South.

“It’s been more of a trickle than a flood,” John Reinersten, senior vice president at CBRE, told the Times.

And while beautification efforts continue, commercial brokers said that the end of the city’s Relocation and Employment Assistance Program, last summer, which offered tax credits of as much as $3,000 per employee, has removed a huge potential carrot.

A new 15-story residential building is under construction at 21 West 20th Street; the project’s developer is Gale International, and the architect of record is Beyer Blinder Belle. Permits were just approved on the 10th, and excavation is already well underway.

The development will be a combination of old and new; the bulk of the project will be contained in a new building at 19 West 20th Street, but the upper floors will extend over an existing building, at 21 West 20th. The interiors of the penthouse will measure nearly 7,000 square feet, with an additional 2,700 square feet of exterior space; the unit will span three floors in total, from 13 to 15, and is listed at $35 million.

In total, the development will have approximately 35,000 square feet of space, with thirteen residences; they will average nearly 3,000 square feet each, and the project definitely falls into the ‘luxury’ category, with asking prices at the other two penthouses north of $10 million.

Aesthetically, 21 West 20th Street will be contextual with its historic surrounds; on-site renderings only depict the upper portions of the development, but the structure will maintain the existing street-wall for the entirety of its height, and the facade will be brick. Completion is anticipated in the spring of 2015.

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 school expansion would be constructed with yellow bricks and give the school nine new classrooms and a 4,000-square-foot gym. Construction of the mission, which would be "townhouse scale" would depend on the tower, as the church needs revenue from the apartments to be able to pay for the mission.
......

The plans go before the LPC on February 4.

The 790 Seventh Avenue hotel, between West 51st and West 52nd streets, will be expanding vertically, according to a plan exam application filed today.

The proposal would add 23 stories to the existing 23-story building. The Schedule A filing indicates that the new levels would be occupied by apartments — 121 total. Morris Adjmi Architects is the architect of record for the expansion.

Starwood Hotels & Resorts sold the 665-key hotel in 2012 for $275 million in cash, the New York Observer reported. The buyers were affiliates of Rockpoint Group, Goldman Sachs’ Real Estate Principal Investment Area and Highgate Holdings. Under the deal, Highgate would operate the hotel.

Starwood announced in April 2013 that it plans to sell $2 billion to $3 billion of hotels in two to three years, Bloomberg reported. The company, based in Stamford, Connecticut, owns the St. Regis, Sheraton and Westin brands.
