Checking In On The Village's Massive Greenwich Lane Complex



Quote:
The Greenwich Lane complex that is assuming the site of defunct St. Vincent's hospital in Greenwich Village has new renderings, and they prove how truly massive the 200-unit, multi-component development really is. The nearly full-block site, bounded by Seventh Avenue and 11th and 12th streets, will be comprised of five apartment buildings and five townhouses, all designed in slightly varying styles to imitate the history and texture reflected throughout the historic neighborhood. The project is designed by FXFOWLE, who is working around preserved facades at the project's sites other than West 11th Street's five townhouses and tower at 155, which are new. The Greenwich Lane is developed by the Rudin Family with Global Holdings. All interiors will be designed by Thomas O'Brien. Construction is moving forward at the U-shaped complex with an interior courtyard, where New York YIMBY reports that the site's largest component—the apartment building at 155 West 11th Street—is in the midsts of gaining a foundation amongst its rapidly rising neighbors.

3 World Trade Center Developer Wants Another $1.2 Billion



Quote:
The long-stalled 3 World Trade Center got some good news back in January when it received $340 million in federal bonds courtesy of Senator Chuck Schumer, but it wasn't enough good news for the tower to actually be finished, apparently. Developer Larry Silverstein and Port Authority vice chairman Scott Rechler are now pursuing an additional $1.2 billion in construction loans for the project, the Times reports. However, the proposal is facing opposition from within the Port Authority, with commissioner Kenneth Lipper saying that the loans would "[defy] the public interest and the economic interest [and] turn a patriotic gesture into a vanity project." Opponents also argue that, although it would be nice to see the tower completed, there is currently little demand for Downtown office space as next-door megatower 1 World Trade Center is still half empty. 3 WTC currently has only one tenant signed up, GroupM, an advertising and media firm that is leasing around one fifth of the 72-story tower.

The total cost of Silverstein's 3 WTC is $2.3 billion, half of which has already been supplied by the Port Authority. The terms of the new proposal stipulate that, in order to get the other half, Silverstein would have to put up around $450 million in cash and also, unlike with the previous deal, pay interest and fees to the authority. Some commissioners would rather the whole thing was financed privately from this point on, however. The authority will put the issue to a vote on Wednesday.

Could someone make a summary of highest U/C/prep buildings in NYC right now?

Santiago Calatrava's Flying Bird Takes Shape at the WTC



Quote:
The new World Trade Center transportation hub has come under fire for a lot of things—mostly for being billions of dollars over budget and years past the original opening date—but one thing is for sure: the development, with its exposed rib cage structure, makes for some really fun construction watching. Architect Santiago Calatrava wooed the city 10 years ago when he proposed this "bird in flight" design, but value engineering chipped away much of the finesse and left us with a something less like a graceful bird, and more like a chunky stegosaurus. Even still, now that it's actually rising on the site, it certainly inspires a bit of awe.

Park Row Site Could Fetch $50M, House This Luxury Tower
http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2014/0...xury_tower.php

Quote:
A large development site east of City Hall Park is being marketed to buyers as a potential location for some future FiDi residential tower—as if there aren't enough going up in the area already. Massey Knakal has the official listing for 1 Beekman Street, also known as 33-34 Park Row.

If bought, the lot, which houses two low-rise buildings, would change hands for the first time in 40 years. To help with the visualization process, MK offers buyers two renderings by I.M. Pei's Pei Cobb Freed & Partners Architects of a glassy tower on the spot that makes use of the potential 87,300 buildable square feet.

The Post first reported the opportunity yesterday, projecting that the site could sell for more than $50 million. Tribeca Citizen reports a rumor that veteran electronics store J&R is closing, citing "the value of Manhattan real estate vs. the state of brick-and-mortar retail" and portending even more change for this stretch.

If the right developer takes the bait, could we have another (slightly smaller) New York by Gehry on our hands, and the beginning of a Park Row development boomlet?

If 432 Park Avenue were shorter and fatter, it would look more genuine and less like it was designed by a twelve-year-old.

Oh man, I thought it was going to have that green tint. Still love the shape but I would have loved the building more if it had looked closer to the rendering in color.

How so? From that pic it just looks like modern office building glass.

It's reflective and high quality. It's a bit more silver looking than others as well.

Thanks.

I'll have to just wait to see it in person. I'm still sad it isn't greenish like the renderings.

From what I saw in the photos, it looked silvery to me, particularly in the shade, whereas 1WTC's looked more blue.

There were photos of the glass cladding in the building's thread. It's magnificent.
