Green space is boring and there's an entire park being built anyway. They need a cool expressionist design that isn't kitsch like Gehry's builds.

Indeed. Green space compliments the surrounding skyscrapers.

Construction update on the 14-story Columbia building near their medical campus. These are just my cell pics, I hope to get new pics with my real camera very soon. Foundation is being poured with a crane on site already.

Future Development site:

Starwood to pay $250M for Herald Square Old Navy

West 34th Street property could be redeveloped into 300,000 sf retail and hotel tower, sources say




Quote:
Barry Sternlicht’s Starwood Capital is in contract to buy a 34th Street retail building with significant future development potential for $250 million, The Real Deal has learned.

The site on which the property sits could be redeveloped into a 300,000-square-foot retail and hotel tower, using unused air rights, sources said.

The 78,000-square-foot building, at 144-150 West 34th Street opposite Macy’s department store, has been owned for almost two decades by the Kefadilis family, which heads KLM Construction company.

It is currently occupied by retail tenant Old Navy, which has another six years on its lease.

Doug Harmon and Adam Spies of Eastdil Secured represented both parties in the deal, which is expected to close this month. When contacted by The Real Deal, Harmon declined to comment on the transaction.

The deal has been in contract since December 2013, sources said.

Neither Starwood nor a representative of the Kefadilis family could immediately be reached for comment.

Sternlicht, known for his luxury hotel investments, has reportedly been looking to sell off shares of Starwood in an initial public offering in order to raise funds and finance new businesses.

The company is involved in luxury Manhattan residential projects like the Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York, which is currently in sales mode, and a 65-story rental at 252 East 57th Street, for which it issued a $450 million loan earlier this year.

wow, that's even worse than that 432 abomination. At least New York has a few nice projects to offset the crap. Thankfully, this one will probably never see the light of day.

I have always wondered how that strip of low-rise retail buildings has remained for so long in the densest place in Manhattan. Whatever has changed, expect that whole 34th street strip to be replaced very soon, and almost none of those buildings have any significant architectural value, and several don't have occupied upper floors.

And whoever designed that sky-wing tower should be forever banned from practicing architecture in New York City or anywhere else! That looks worse than a Gene Kaufmann building!

I am sorry, New York!!! I mentioned the 34th Street potential hotel project and Gene Kaufmann in the same post! Now it turns out that Gene Kaufmann will be designing the hotel!

Will the cladding really be that blue?

NYC should have learned that bright colours don't look good in the city after the mistake of William Beaver House.

Glassy 15-Story Tower At 809 Broadway Revealed



Quote:
Say hello to the new 809 Broadway. This black and glass ODA-designed structure will soon replaced the 126-year-old building where Blatt Billiards used to reside between 11th and 12th Streets. The pool table manufacturer owned the building since 1972, but last year, they decided to sell the building. IDM Capital paid $24 million for the property, and filed plans in November to triple the five-story building's height. There was previously just a tiny rendering of the new structure, but now we have a better idea of what we'll see. The new building will host offices on floors two through eight and just three condos—a full-floor unit, a duplex, and a triplex—on the top floors.

It's old, but not that great. I'd say it's a worthy replacement.

Vińoly's Skyscraper Museum lecture is interesting, although there's a lot of information most everyone here already knows. Something that really struck me, around the 15-minute mark, is his attitude towards the City's involvement in the process of designing these buildings.

He compared the review process to London, which has a more stringent, lengthy process than NY... and yet he says, it's "ultimately more productive." Rather than saying the Amanda Burden/Tower Verre thing was a travesty or an embarrassment, he just called for her (and the City) to take ownership of its stance when it comes to these review committees. Anyway, just a maybe unexpected point of view.

It is reminiscent of 15 Union Square West. Which, incidentally, was also designed by ODA.

I agree for the most part. The black wall facing North is a bit unfortunate, and the street would have benefited if they kept the street wall in tact all through the roofline. There are plenty of equally tall buildings just a block north that apparently did not need a set back, such as 817 and 828 Broadway (the Strand). Then again, those beauties are probably from well before the 1916 zoning law.

I just love projects like this! I hope to see a lot more like this especially in the upper east side. You would never know this was just completed. Well done.

I think if the windows were smaller, it would look more genuine and less 80s pomo.

If I'm buying here, the hell with smaller windows. I want my apartment to have big ones.

Also the reflection color is ridiculous.
