new york tomorrow imagines hybrid residential tower for the city
http://www.designboom.com/architectu...rs-05-06-2014/

blending the social and urban dynamics of ‘new york tomorrow’, the project envisions a slender residential tower that incorporates both sustainability principles and digital technology. the design aims to foster communal well being and the main lobby opens onto the surrounding streetscape, serving different activities such as a co-working area, auditorium or events venue.

the mixed-use building responds to the extreme spatial conditions of its urban surroundings and offers a hybrid experience for inhabitants. the interior functions merge living, playing and work into one environment, becoming a place for people to gather and interact.

Rockefeller Univ. gets nod to rise over the FDR

http://www.crainsnewyork.com/article...e-over-the-fdr


Quote:
A City Council committee approved Rockefeller University's plan to construct two new buildings on a deck over Franklin D. Roosevelt Drive on Thursday—virtually ensuring that the rest of the Council would follow suit.
The school got the nod from the Committee on Land Use to construct a two-story research building and a one-story conference center on a platform above the thoroughfare, as well as another building on its existing campus, located on the east side of York Avenue, stretching from East 64th to East 68th streets. It had been seeking a number of permits to do so and sweetened the deal by agreeing to a number of community benefits hashed out with the Council ahead of the vote.

If that ever happens, that will be the most ridiculous cantilever ever attempted here! Good luck...

A sneak peak at Cornell’s futuristic NYC tech campus

http://therealdeal.com/blog/2014/05/...c-tech-campus/








Quote:
Cornell recently unveiled its vision for the massive tech campus it plans to build on New York City’s Roosevelt Island.
When the campus opens in 2017, it will provide a permanent home for an entirely new school called Cornell Tech that city officials hope will position New York as a major tech center. Cornell beat out top-notch schools like Columbia, Carnegie Mellon, and Stanford to create the new graduate school, which will be focused on classes in computer science, business, and entrepreneurism.

I actually love that design, but I think it's purely a concept.

As much as people get worked up about cantilevering over shorter, older buildings, it's one of the few ways left to manufacture square footage on the crowded island. I expect to see a boom in cantilevered designs in the near future.

I actually like it! The cladding could have lost those random squares but otherwise it's a neat design.

I like the university over the highway.

Random question I'm not clear on: When De Blasio says build taller and denser, does he only mean Manhattan, or will it spread to the other boroughs?

Times Square Redevelopment

What it's supposed to look like:

Both images below from http://snohetta.com/project/9-times-...reconstruction







The first part of the Times Square Redevelopment has debuted sometime in the past few months (I don't go to Times Square often). I liked it!

Those renders need about 4x the pedestrians to be accurate. Renovate it all you want, Times Square will never be a pleasant place to be.

I felt it was a very stinky place, that bothered me the most.

But the square redevelopment is much needed. Congrats on that move!

Funny though, all renders usually show 4x times more people than there actually are, Times sq. is the opposite. However, I found it amazing, mainly in the evening and early night, when all the lights are on.

Related Cos to snatch up Two lots in the Highline. Est. $200 Million.


image via curbedny


Two parking lots near High Line could fetch $200M

Related Cos. is eyeing the purchase of a pair of sites close to the elevated park on West 18th and West 19th streets for what would be a record price of $900 per square foot.

http://www.crainsnewyork.com/article...uld-fetch-200m

Quote:
The Related Cos. is near to buying even more on the far West Side where it is already spending billions of dollars building millions of square feet of new space.

The company is in negotiations to purchase two development sites along the High Line, the elevated park that has become a tourist sensation and attracted some of the priciest new residential development in the city in the last few years.

In the deal, Related will acquire 511-525 W. 18th St., a low-rise garage building directly west of the High Line, and also a parking lot at 500 W. 19th St. that encompasses the full block between West 18th and 19th streets along 10th Avenue and abutting the east side of the High Line. According to sources, the company will pay more than $200 million for the sites, what is thought to be a record price for land in the neighborhood.

The deal mirrors an acquisition made just across West 19th Street by developer Ziel Feldman at the end of 2012, when Mr. Feldman similarly bought up parcels on that block that hug both the east and west sides of the High Line. Mr. Feldman is currently in the process of constructing two towers on the sites. Mr. Feldman, according to reports, paid just under $50 million for those sites, a quarter of what Related is paying.

According to sources, Related is planning to erect a 250-foot tall residential tower on the site west of the High Line. That building can span much of the block, where it will be adjacent to the Frank Gehry-designed IAC headquarters building. To build to that height in the High Line district, which normally caps development at 125 feet, Related will buy neighboring air rights that allow it to build higher.

Sources estimated that Related will pay more than $900 per square foot for the development, what is seen to be the highest amount paid yet for land in that area of Manhattan, where several residential development projects are currently underway.

Related is building huge residential and commercial towers in the Hudson Yards neighborhood at the northern end of the High Line, what is the largest construction project currently underway in the entire nation.

I think that plain and boring glass surfaces will be viewed down upon. It's good that we're seeing a lot of expensive projects in bricks or stone. Random windows can look good if done right. Here it looks absolutely perfect.

Flat glass surfaces are timeless, they've been around since the 20s. Random cladding will crash from fashion.
