New Renderings Show More of Harlem's Taystee Redevelopment



Quote:
Work is underway at the old Taystee Bakery Factory site in Harlem, and developer Janus Properties is trying to lure tenants to the site with a new batch of renderings and an informational website. New York YIMBY spotted the new images, which, save for the new blue hue, look pretty similar to the last visuals we saw. The website also has an interior rendering, a shot of an exterior seating area, and show the nearby neighbors. The 300,000-square-foot building will rise 11 stories on West 125th Street near Amsterdam Avenue, and it's being built to meet LEED silver certification.

Developer May Just Slap Glass Thing Atop Mercantile Library



Quote:
Adapting an old building for modern use comes with many challenges, especially when that adaptation includes an addition. Should the addition imitate the existing structure? Should it pay homage without being identical? Should it be of a completely different style, but one that complements or, at the least, defers to its surroundings? Or should you just throw a huge folding glass thing on top and call it a day? George Boyle, the architect in charge of turning the former Mercantile Library at 17 East 47th Street into the Merc Hotel, is going with the fourth option. On his website, Boyle explains, "We sought to design a roof-top addition that speaks softly to the original structure - to converse rather than merge."

Silverstein Will Roll Out Case for Hudson Yards Mega-High Rise



Quote:
Attorneys for Silverstein Properties will present their case for turning a two-acre Hudson Yards site at 520 West 41st Street into a 1,100-foot-tall residential and commercial tower in the proposal’s first public hearing at the Department of City Planning tomorrow morning.

The plan would turn “Projected Development Site 46” of the 2005 rezoning from a potential office tower to a mega-high rise with 1,400 residential units, 175 units of corporate housing, 300,000 square feet of retail space and a 10,000-square-foot covered public open space; and the Silverstein team will argue with Chairman Larry Silverstein‘s signature vehemence on Thursday that only residential development would unlock the potential of the site that’s adjacent to the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and approaches to the Lincoln Tunnel.

“The applicant believes that the proposed zoning text changes to facilitate the residential development at the site are appropriate and necessary as the project site has unique qualities and characteristics that make it more suitable for residential development while at the same time unsuitable for large-scale office development,” reads a draft environmental study document that rolls out a litany of reasons for the shift to residential in advance of the proposed rezoning plan’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure.

Meet the Rental Towers Putting the Nails in 5Pointz's Coffin



Quote:
Demolition of iconic graffiti mecca 5Pointz is slated to begin any day now—though let's face it, everyone's been in mourning since the Great and Sudden Whitewash of 2013. Vilified developers Jerry and David Witkoff are putting up two rental towers in its place; and construction on those will start in three to five months. Based on their first reveal last year, the blocky modern buildings will leave no trace of the once-colorful warehouse across the street from MoMA PS1 on Long Island City's Jackson Avenue. New York YIMBY unearthed some new renderings, above and below, that show the design hasn't gotten any more innovative, though they do include the 7 train curving around the complex.

Revealed: 125 Chrystie Street, Broome Solar Tower & Theater



Quote:
For this afternoon’s reveal, YIMBY has unearthed renderings of a mixed-use building on the Lower East Side, from the website of Leven Betts, a husband-and-wife architectural practice based in West Chelsea.

The images show a boxy, stark white structure at the corner of Chrystie and Broome, overlooking the narrow and very well-used Sara D. Roosevelt Park. If the project comes to fruition, it would represent yet another step forward in the revival of the Bowery (which is just on the other side of the block) and the Lower East Side, bringing another piece of high design to a neighborhood that was once one of the world’s most infamous slums.

The building would reach what appears to be nine stories and contain 35,000 square feet of floorspace, according to the architects’ website, on a double-wide tenement lot. It would contain only 16 apartments, with the remainder of the space taken up by “a downtown dance company’s theater, rehearsal space and offices.”

Inside the In-Progress Amenity Spaces of Midtown's Halcyon



Quote:
Things are moving along at Midtown East's Halcyon, the 32-story tower rising at 305 East 51st Street. It's been about nine months since a few of the building's 123 apartments appeared on the market, with asks from $1.3 million for a one-bedroom apartment on the fourth floor. The building has since premiered its pricy penthouse B, a $11.75 million four-bedroom pad. All of the building's occupants will have access to its touted amenity spaces, including the double-height, serenity-inducing "Motion Studio" and sky-high pool.

Beekman Condos Above Temple Court Unveil Pricing, Interior Shot



Quote:
Any day that brings more information about the hotel and condos coming to historic Beekman Street is a good day. The Beekman unveiled pricing (h/t The Real Deal) for its 68 condominiums, which will rise in a 51-story glassy tower (background, above) adjacent to the 1883-built, atrium-filled beauty dubbed Temple Court (foreground, above) that's on its way to becoming a 287-room hotel.

The condos will start at $1.2 million for the 20 one-bedrooms, $2.95 million for 38 two-bedrooms, and $3.7 million for eight three-bedrooms. Apartments will range from 700 to 3,550 square feet, while the two full-floor penthouses will also have private outdoor space. Penthouse pricing has not yet been announced, so of course, those asks will be higher.

Here's a shot of 5 Beekman (the old part, which'll be the Beekman Hotel) and the under-construction Beekman Residences tower behind.




Here's a shot of the lobby of the Residences.

This one too might be back from the dead, hopefully with a redesign. Maybe we should reopen the thread.

Famed Hotel Pennsylvania facing wrecking ball again

http://nypost.com/2014/08/05/famed-h...ng-ball-again/
[IMG]http://****************.wordpress.com/2014/08/fgh13757.jpg?w=720&h=480&crop=1[/IMG]

Quote:
The Hotel Pennsylvania may not be safe from the wrecking ball after all.

Vornado chief Steve Roth revealed Tuesday that financial firms have approached the real-estate powerhouse about resurrecting its plans to raze the famed hotel opposite Madison Square Garden and replace it with a 3 million square-foot tower, known as 15 Penn Plaza.

“We are getting very interesting intriguing incomings as to office tenants that might want that site,” Roth said during a conference call.

“We are putting our big toe in the marketplace to explore the opportunity to land a major anchor tenant for the site and the Penn Plaza district,” he added. “We are up to our eyeballs in it, but there is nothing specific we are able to go public with.”


Vornado shelved plans to build a tower to house new trading floors for Merrill Lynch after the brokerage firm backed away from the deal in 2007. Less than a year later, Bank of America bought Merrill Lynch as it teetered on the brink of collapse.

“We have a 3 million square foot financial services-oriented tower, which was designed for a huge financial services company that we had a deal with that went away during the Great Recession,” Roth recalled. “It is sitting on our shelves.”

The plans for the 68-story tower, which would rise almost as high as the nearby Empire State Building, also had been criticized by that building’s ownership for potentially ruining the skyline of New York.

Vornado finally shifted gears in March 2013, as The Post first reported, and announced plans for a massive renovation of the Hotel Pennsylvania, which would have the added benefit of improving the neighborhood where Vornado has extensive holdings.

But now, the Hudson Yards neighborhood to the west is gathering steam with a new park, major towers and big-name tenants, leading more companies to consider all the area sites and options.
While Roth said the roughly $300 million hotel renovation has been put “on hold,” the firm will go down one of two paths — either landing an anchor tenant for a new tower or a renovation of the hotel that would still generate more income and improve the neighborhood.

Roth, who acknowledged that the transformation of the neighborhood won’t be a short-term endeavor, said: “It’s three or four blocks in the city of New York on top of the busiest train station in North America.”

Seconded.

I'm not a fan of the 15 Penn Plaza design we've seen to date, but would love for something wonderful to rise there (the development opportunity is too great to go to waste). Here's hoping this does get resurrected, and that it does get a new design. Someone tell SHoP to submit a bid! This is pretty damned close to where they envision their Gotham Gateway tower.

There's a thousand buildings nicer than the hotel in NYC. Just hope its replacement will be one of them.

Looks like they scrapped the diamond tuck:

New Look: Related’s 15 Hudson Yards



Quote:
Plans for the individual buildings of Related’s Hudson Yards have continued to evolve, and a new rendering shows an apparent redesign of Diller Scofidio + Renfro and the Rockwell Group’s 15 Hudson Yards, which will house condominiums in the tower portion, and a “Culture Shed” in the podium.

Modifications to the tower’s form have not been significant, with the building retaining its warped, multi-cylindric appearance, but detailing has been partially eliminated. Visual evidence of the tower’s inspiration — said to be derived from a corset — seems to have been lost, as the straps that formerly cinched “the tower at its midsection, squeezing the rectilinear lower half of the building into a curvaceous upper half” have been eliminated.

The only thing unique about Hotel Pennsylvania is the heavy colonnaded front entrance which dialogued with the long-gone Penn Station. The rest is just architectural salvage.

Designs Unveiled for Controversial Brooklyn Bridge Park Sites


[One of 14 proposals for the development sites at Pier 6. Rendering by NV/da + O’Neill McVoy Architects via WSJ.]

Quote:
In the midst of a heated debate (and an ongoing lawsuit) over whether there should even be more housing in Brooklyn Bridge Park in the first place comes news that 14 different designs for two development sites near Pier 6 are under consideration. The 14 designs for the affordable towers were submitted following a request for proposals in May, and the Journal published three of the renderings plus details on the plans, which Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation members will discuss at a meeting today.
