The Pastis Building's Revised Topper Finally Woos Landmarks



Quote:
Previously on the "Adventures of the Landmarks Preservation Commission," a proposal for a two-story glass addition to 9-19 Ninth Avenue, better known as the Pastis building, was rejected—first panned by about a dozen public speakers and then by LPC commissioners, who echoed their position.

Yesterday, over a month later, BKSK Architects returned to the LPC with a modified design for the modern topper that they hoped would win everyone over. They got their wish. BKSK's Harry Kendall told the commissioners, who said the original proposal was too loud and inappropriate for the Meatpacking District, that the firm had "heard [them] loud and clear." The new design uses new materials (beyond hated glass!) to create what he called a "robust metal frame" and reduces the visibility of the fašade by seven feet.

BKSK made other significant changes to help the building fit in with the formerly industrial neighborhood. There will also be some Juliet balconies built into the structure behind the outer fašade. The base of the building will stay mostly as is. He said the canopies will be a mix of corrugated metal and glass that will echo the "happenstance nature" of the building's evolution. Elise Quasebarth of the preservation firm Higgins Quasebarth & Partners said some of the windows that were replaced in the 1980s will be restored to their original wood.

To say the LPC commissioners were happy with what they saw during their presentation would be a bit of an understatement. Commissioner Frederick Bland said the design team had "done well" and applauded the more visible metal framework. Commissioner Margery Perlmutter said it was "incredible," noted the "amazing materials," and said the new design "maintains the market quality" of the building and the Meatpacking District.

Moinian Lands Financing For 3 Hudson Boulevard

Quote:
The Moinian Group announced yesterday (Tuesday) that it has secured a loan for an unspecified amount with AIG companies through its Commercial Mortgage Lending Group, for the land associated with 3 Hudson Boulevard, the developer’s 1.8 million-square-foot, LEED Platinum tower in the heart of the Hudson Yards district.

Set to occupy the entire block between 11th Avenue and Hudson Boulevard Park from West 34th Street to West 35th Street, the 3 Hudson Boulevard tower is one of the ‘Four Corners’ at the gateway to the Hudson Yards district, and continues to attract interest from several large companies vying for the position as the anchor office tenant.

Avison Young’s tri-state president Arthur Mirante, who oversees the building’s leasing, told Real Estate Weekly recently that he has exchanged proposals and counter-proposals with a prospective tenant and hopes to have the lease signed soon for 600,000 s/f.

30 Park Place Better Hurry if It Wants to Be Downtown's Tallest



Quote:
30 Park Place—if it wants to be downtown's tallest residential tower, however briefly—has reason to keep construction moving along. The Robert A.M. Stern-designed tower, with a hotel on the bottom and condos on top, will eventually stand at 926 feet, but 22 Thames Street is coming up right behind it and is slated to take over the title at 960 feet (depending on whether or not new owner Michael Shvo keeps Vinoly's design). However, while construction on that project has yet to begin, 30 Park Place is chugging right along. Field Condition snapped some photos of the rising tower, which is currently around the one-third mark, and already looking pretty tall. Stern's signature limestone paneling is being installed as the building goes up.

Supertall Tower 3 Hudson Boulevard Gets Its Own Website



Quote:
Work has yet to begin on Moinian Group's planned 1,050-foot-tall tower near Hudson Yards, but the future building now has its own website via New York YIMBY, with new renderings and details about the FXFOWLE-designed tower. It was reported today that the developer secured a ground loan, so construction should start any day now. The building will be located at 3 Hudson Boulevard, a pedestrian greenway that's currently under construction, and it will have frontage on 11th Avenue and 34th Street. The lower half will hold offices, with two six-story exterior LED screens displaying occupants' branding, and floor 49 through 63 will hold condos.

Tallest Residential Tower Outside Manhattan to Rise in L.I.C.

http://theelectricwebnetwork.blogspo...-brooklyn.html


Quote:
Excavation is underway in Long Island City for what will soon become the city’s tallest residential building outside of Manhattan. Heatherwood Communities is building a 58-story skyscraper at 42-12 28th Street that will rise 646 feet and 8 inches to its pinnacle, making it significantly taller than any existing residential high-rise. The tower will contain 477 apartments with a pool, a gym, roof terraces, bike storage, underground parking and a small amount of ground floor retail space.

Indeed, at 646 feet, the skyscraper will become the tallest apartment building in either Brooklyn or Queens, and will stand a mere twelve feet shy of the monolithic One Court Square, which has dominated the Court Square skyline for over two decades, and 56 feet taller than Brooklyn's tallest building, 388 Bridge Street, which was completed last year.

With 477 units, 42-12 28th Street will also add a significant number of new residents to the burgeoning Court Square neighborhood, which is seeing a surge in development. Next-door,

Heatherwood recently completed 42-17 27th Street, branded 27 on 27th, which has 142 units.

In terms of square footage, the building will have 5,878 square feet of retail, and 392,824 square feet of residential space. Amenities will include a third-floor pool, gym, roof terraces on the 45th and 58th floors, bike storage, and underground parking.

The aesthetic is simple and glassy, typical of new developments in Long Island City, though zigzagging lines of a white material break up the facade’s monotony.

Above anything else, 42-12 28th Street’s defining characteristic will be its looming height, which will distinguish the structure from neighboring high-rises.

Given its scope and height, 42-12 28th Street will make a significant positive impact on the neighborhood and its skyline, helping the push towards the creation of a livable and walkable neighborhood in Court Square.

Designed by the architecture firm of Goldstein and Hill & West, the project is expected to be completed in June of 2017.

Once upon a time, Long Island City was a hotbed of industry, but over the last decade, it's become a hotbed for residential development, thanks to rezoning. Since then, roughly 5,000 units have been added to a 37 block area that encompasses the LIC neighborhoods of Court Square and Queens Plaza.

Rockrose is another major participant in the area’s renaissance, and The Linc LIC — a 790-unit tower which was recently completed — will soon be joined by another skyscraper at 10 Court Square.

Height-wise, 10 Court Square will still play second-fiddle to 42-12 28th Street, as the former will only stand 50 stories and 509 feet.

Many more projects are still in the planning stages.

The race upwards is just beginning in Long Island City, and the momentum in Court Square is going to become apparent as the skyline will be completely transformed over the course of the next few years.

From warehouse conversions to the tallest residential building in Queens, there is a lot on the rise in Long Island City.

More density on the way?

Massey Knakal picked to market 1.5MSF of air rights above Moynihan Station
http://therealdeal.com/blog/2014/06/...nihan-station/
Quote:
New York State’s business promotion corporation, Empire State Development, picked the investment brokerage firm Massey Knakal Realty Services to sell the 1.5 million square feet of air rights above Moynihan Station in Midtown.

The announcement was made today during a meeting of the directors at Empire State Development. The decision could jump-start additional development around the station.

The sale of air rights is part of the larger, ongoing Moynihan Station redevelopment plan, which will bring New York Penn Station entrances to the James A. Farley post office building at 421 Eighth Avenue, between 3X and 3X streets. The state acquired the building in 2007.
.....
Some insiders estimate the yalue of the air rights at between $450 million and $500 million, even though it’s possible not all 1.5 million square feet of development rights will be sold.
Shapiro, who is widely considered one of the city’s top air rights specialists, said it would be a difficult process.

“It will be a long and arduous task since it involves multi levels of government, community groups and boards to approve the sales – and that’s after having zoning changes enacted to expand the boundaries where the transferable development rights can be distributed,” he said.
According to information on the Empire State website seeking requests for proposals, Massey Knakal will be awarded a listing agreement that initially runs for two years, with three extension options, each for one year.

I'm with you, I think the preservationist outcry against this addition is crazy. It hardly ruins the character of the original and I'd go so far as to say it enhances the old brick by way of contrast. But some people will never be happy.

Impressive map to imagine where new skyscrapers might rise!:

Quote:
In response to this problem, the Municipal Art Society has released a set of online maps that illustrate where possible development could occur in Gotham. The maps, called "Accidental Skyline," allow citizens to track land that has available development rights and see how it could impact their neighborhood. They are part of a broader project by MAS to work with the city to make regulatory changes that will better protect iconic public spaces.

Revealed: 43-25 Hunter Street



Quote:
A project insider submitted fresh renderings for Rockrose’s development at 43-25 Hunter Street, in Long Island City’s Court Square neighborhood. The architect is SLCE, and permits were partially approved late last week.

The insider also has the latest details regarding scope, and 43-25 Hunter Street will be very substantial, with a gross measurement totaling 970,000 square feet. Ground-floor retail will comprise 19,400 square feet, and the remainder of the project will be divided between 974 apartments, with 20% set aside as affordable; the development will also be split between two components, with a 14-story building rising next to the larger tower.

43-25 Hunter Street will also become one of the tallest buildings in Long Island City, standing 50 stories and 509 feet to its pinnacle.

Work Underway At 100 Norfolk



Quote:
One notable project mapped above is zig-a-zig-ah 100 Norfolk Street, announced back in 2012. ODA Architecture designed the 38-unit building, which will cantilever over its low-rise neighbors.

The site was formerly home to the offices and refrigerators for kosher dairy restaurant Ratner’s, which closed in 2002. Urban-Scape acquired the property in 2012 for $8.8 million, Crain’s reported. To work around 2008 rezoning that limits building heights in the area to 120 feet, the developer transferred air rights from adjoining parcels, which it owns.

In April 2013, demolition permits were filed for the existing two-story structure on the lot, Bowery Boogie reported.

This week, we spotted a teaser site for the building (tagline: “38 units, 100 reasons”), and excavation work is going hot ‘n heavy at the construction site.

Revealed: 520 West 41st Street

(massing study, NOT final design)


Quote:
Preliminary renderings are up for Silverstein’s 520 West 41st Street via the project’s draft Environmental Impact Statement, which affirm the building’s status as one of the largest in Manhattan, given it will stand 1,100 feet tall. More impressive is the actual floor-count of approximately 106, which will surpass all other skyscrapers on the island.

While the height of 520 West 41st Street will be impressive, the most notable aspect of the tower is its sheer size, which also presents a turning point New York development has long needed: as ‘supertall’ technology continues to advance, buildings of 1,000′+ will no longer be restricted to the uber-rich. This means that mass-market towers that cater to all demographics are on the near-horizon, yielding new opportunities for satiating demand, and constructing supply where it is most needed.

Indeed, 520 West 41st Street will have more units than the combined total of every other residential supertall either proposed or under construction in New York City. Even the project’s affordable component — which will total approximately 280 apartments — will have more units than projects like 432 Park Avenue and 217 West 57th Street.

While all-super-luxe skyscrapers are not a bad thing, the scope of Silverstein’s tower proves that 1,000′+ buildings can help solve the affordability crisis.

Sneaky UES Highrise Sneaks Back On The Scene


Curbed

Quote:
The proposal for a new building at 207 West 75th Street has seen revisions, though whether the project will be built at all following irrational NIMBY opposition remains to be seen. Morris Adjmi is the architect, and the developer is Felipe Coello of The Philippe at W 75ST NY LLC.

Permits for the development were disapproved back in 2011, but indicate a total scope of 26,865 square feet, and the project would be entirely residential. The building would stand 14 stories and 176 feet tall, replacing an existing two-story low-rise that is occupied by a tanning salon.

Local NIMBYs against the original proposal were led by a former game show host. While the notion that a 14-story building is ‘tall’ is difficult to comprehend, community ravings against 207 West 75th Street look even more ridiculous when the proposal is compared to the structure next-door, which is already far taller.

Opposition hinged on the building being a ‘sliver,’ which was a red herring for neighbors that simply wanted to block new development. Adjmi’s initial scheme was both attractive and contextual, and would have blended perfectly into its surrounds. As expected, the NIMBY swarm reportedly live inside 215 West 75th Street, which will lose its lot-line window views once 207 West 75th Street is built.

The new design has seen slight revisions to the upper levels, where penthouse glass has been reduced, but the overall height has seen a slight increase. The proposal’s appearance is about the same — and if/when it is built, it will become a positive addition to the Upper West Side – but despite the alterations, plans apparently remain on-hold.

NY YIMBY: Construction Update: 220 Central Park South



Quote:
Excavation is making major headway at Vornado’s 220 Central Park South, and the first signs of eventual verticality are also on-site: mock-ups of the tower’s cladding are located next to the project’s entrance on Central Park South, giving an idea of what the facade will soon look like. Robert A.M. Stern is the project’s architect.



The latest permits — which were approved earlier this month — maintain the 66-story tower’s height of 950 feet. A separate 17-story ‘villa’ will be located directly on Central Park South, and the development will be comprised of two distinct buildings, much like 15 Central Park West. 220 Central Park South will have 160 condominiums in total.



Facade mock-ups reveal four different types of limestone that could ultimately clad the development, and the range is fairly specific, from mottled off-white to semi-beige. Each of the choices looks phenomenal, and regardless of the shade that’s chosen, the design of 220 Central Park South promises to become an iconic addition to the New York skyline.
