Condo Comeback Kid Michael Shvo Nabs Next Target for $180M



Quote:
That resurrected developer with a pun-tastic name, Michael Shvo, wants everyone to know he's staging an epic comeback. After buying up a gas station on Tenth Avenue (cost: $23.5M; it'll be condos) and an eight-parcel site on Varick Street (cost: $130M, it'll probably be condos), Shvo has moseyed onto the next deal. The Post reports he's shelled out about $180 million for the vacant lot development site at Thames and Greenwich streets. Previous owners Fisher Brothers and Steven Witkoff were slated to erect a slender, glassy Rafael Vinoly-designed tower full o' rental apartments at 22 Thames Street that, at 957 feet, would have been the tallest residential building downtown. Shvo, however, will probably build luxury condos on the old American Stock Exchange site instead, because that's obviously his bag and, of course that's where the money is. Plus, the sky is literally the limit because there are no height restrictions in the area.
Viñoly's design: soon to be scrapped for a supertall?

Long-Awaited 50 West Street Reveals Everything Except Pricing



Quote:
A few renderings gave a peek inside the 191 condos coming to 50 West Street, and now, with the launch of its full website, the highly anticipated condo tower bares it all—interior renderings, penthouse renderings, amenity details, design details, floorplans—everything, that is, except pricing (previous reports say homes will average $1,900/square foot). But no matter, the wealth of new information is enough to satiate those that have been watching and waiting for this building for a decade. The 780-foot tower is being designed by Helmut Jahn, and the ever-popular Thomas Juul-Hansen is doing the interiors. Condos range from one- to four-bedrooms, and the amenity collection is one of the best we've seen. It includes a 60-foot pool, spin studio, an entire floor of home offices, and a private rooftop observatory and terrace at 734 feet.

Permits Filed For Roseland Ballroom Tower



Quote:
The Roseland Ballroom on West 53rd Street closed in April, and it's now nearing its end of days. Permits have been filed for the 62-story, 675-foot residential tower that will be replacing it. Designed by CetraRuddy, the building will have a wider retail base and hold 426 apartments in a tower wrapped with a brick-like window pattern.

Oosten Williamsburg Revealed



Quote:
The Oosten is a Williamsburg condominium project with a decidedly international flavor — it's being designed by Dutch architect Piet Boon (the complex's name means East in Dutch) and it's the first ground-up American project from XIN Development Group International, the U.S. branch of Chinese development giant Xinyuan Real Estate Company. Not only that, but it sounds — and looks — likes it's going to be pretty luxurious, especially considering the location. The developers just released a new set of renderings, showing us exactly how the Oosten will, as the Times put it, "put a stylish stamp on a rough-edged industrial area south of the Williamsburg Bridge."

Neighbors Uneasy About Astoria Cove Megadevelopment



Quote:
One of the two waterfront megaprojects planned for Astoria's Hallets Point peninsula continued its public review process last night at a community board meeting that revealed many neighbors are aching for details about affordable housing. In April, City Planning green-lit Alma Realty's application for the 1,000,000-square-foot Astoria Cove development, which earmarked 295 units out of 1,689 as affordable, or just about 20 percent. But at the meeting, an attorney representing Alma, Howard Weiss, could neither divulge if that's the final number nor how much the affordable units will cost. "I can tell you right now, as you know, it's 295. We're working to exceed it," Weiss told Queens Community Board 2's zoning committee and a crowded banquet room at Astoria Manor. The company is currently discussing the details with City Planning. Added Weiss: "We're not there yet. So I can't provide a number."

The zoning committee is expected to make a recommendation at a June 17 meeting of the entire community board before Alma's plans get passed along to the borough president, City Planning, and City Council for the next steps in the six-month Uniform Land Use Review Process. But residents worried the board would vote next week without specifics on affordable housing and other matters. "It's really hard for me to approve on a hand if we don't know what we're talking about," said one board member. Others echoed that sentiment. "I'm shocked to the extent they threw back your questions at you," said John Collins, a Queens College professor.

The question of affordability emerged from the larger concern that Astoria will gentrify at the rate of other waterfront neighborhoods such as Greenpoint or Long Island City. "Manhattan has become too expensive for those with the big bucks to live, so they come to Astoria," said Robin Person, who's lived on the peninsula for 32 years.

City Closes On Another Willets Site As Development Ramps Up



Quote:
The City of New York has paid the Paterno Family of Flushing $7.94 million to acquire 126-23 37th Avenue in Willets Point, according to property records.

The deal is part of the city’s strategy to control the land necessary to proceed with the redevelopment of the Queens neighborhood. The city currently holds over 95 percent of the land earmarked for phase one of the project, according to the New York City Economic Development Corporation.

Known for its collection of auto-repair shops and salvage yards, Willets Point is the target of a $3 billion redevelopment plan by Queens Development LLC, a joint venture between the Related Companies and Sterling Equities. The 62-acre development site features the New York Mets’ Citi Field at its heart.

Wythe Avenue corridor to get yet another hotel



Quote:
The $30 million purchase of a site in North Williamsburg paves the way for an 180-room hotel by the developer behind the Condor Hotel.

The developer behind the Condor Hotel in South Williamsburg is building another hotel near the Wythe Hotel, the successful pioneer of what now has blossomed into a string of hotel projects in the neighborhood.

Developer Zelig Weiss has acquired 121 N. 12th St., a parcel that fills the entire block front between North 12th and North 13th streets along Wythe Avenue.

Mr. Weiss just closed on an $18.35 million loan from Madison Realty Capital, one of the most active specialty lenders in the boroughs, to purchase the site, which he is buying for about $30 million.

Joel Friedman, an executive with Nationwide Realty, helped Mr. Weiss arrange the transaction to acquire the site and said a 320,000-square-foot hotel can be erected there with about 180 rooms.

[b]The new hotel, to be called the Level Hotel[/b, is one of several that is being built in North Williamsburg along Wythe Avenue, where commercial zoning prevents the wave of residential development that has overtaken much of the rest of the neighborhood. Heritage Equity Partners, for instance, is also building a hotel around the block from the Wythe.

Naftali Group's 234 East 23rd Street Launches Sales



Quote:
Yet another project from the prolific Naftali Group launches sales today. The brand new 20-story tower at 234 East 23rd Street, described on its official website as "an oasis of calm in the beating heart of the city" has nine active listings, ranging from an $815K studio to a $2.895 million two-bedroom, although the four-bedroom, full-floor penthouse with multiple large, private terraces will be asking north of $6 million whenever it comes to market.

That hotel looks like three different architects took turns designing it. The one above is really nice though! Reminds me of NY's industial era.

101 Tribeca Could Be Financial District's Tallest Residential Building



Quote:
Whew, it turns out the tall residential tower planned for Murray Street won't actually have a metallic spaceship at its pinnacle. But man, will it be tall. As first reported by New York YIMBY, Fisher Brothers and The Witkoff Group—developers of the site between Greenwich and West streets that was formerly a dorm for St. John's University—have tapped Kohn Pedersen Fox to design a glassy skyscraper for 101 Murray that gently curves outwards into a slightly wider apex. The 63-story building would house 129 condos, and while its exact height is as of yet unclear, YIMBY approximates it at 950 feet, which would make it downtown's tallest residential building. Oh, and it got a trendy new name, apparently: 101 Tribeca.

135 W. 52nd St. Conversion Revealed



Quote:
A Times article about condo developers employing artists to make their projects stand out reveals not only a full rendering of 135 West 52nd Street, where lighting designer Thierry Dreyfus will be installing a 423-foot tower of light, but a GIF that shows the building transition back and forth between its lighted and unlighted states. (Click on the picture to make it light up.)

The building is being converted from a hotel to 109 condominiums by Joseph Chetrit and David Bistricer, who bought the building last year for $180 million. They're spending another estimated $250 million on the renovation, so the pressure will be on Drefyus's lighting installation — as well as the huge penthouses and 12,000-square-foot residents' club) to draw the big money buyers.

50 West Street and 101 Tribeca look like beautiful towers, and I hope 22 Thames Street gets a redesign at least commensurate to the former Western Electric Building.

That Naftali project is so classy, thumbs up! Great early modern appeal.


I like this one in Manhattan's Upper East Side too, some American architects really are still fluent in classical architecture language:

1110 Park Avenue, NYC



http://wirednewyork.com/forum/showthread.php?t=37431

Simple, well proportioned, elegant, beautiful. Timeless.

Is it U/C already?

So? Dubai has many supertalls too, yet even comparing a city like that to nyc is like an insult to architecture, urban planning and history in general
