Developer of 66-story spire to take first step



Quote:
Moinian Group is expected to file for permits to break ground on its West Side tower at 3 Hudson Blvd., just north of Hudson Yards. The developer will also move forward on two other parcels further north along 11th Avenue.

Joe Moinian's 66-story tower in the Hudson Yards district is expected to move one step closer to completion Monday, when the developer plans to file for permits to break ground on the spire at 3 Hudson Blvd.

After the permit is approved, which could take up to six months, the Moinian Group plans to begin its foundation work for the 1,050-foot-tall building, which is set to include retail, commercial and possibly luxury-residential space. It will rise on a full-block site bounded by West 34th and West 35th streets to the south and north, and 11th Avenue and Hudson Boulevard West.

"There are only a few freestanding buildings in the city," said Oskar Brecher, director of development at the firm. "It is a hugely efficient way to build, since we are surrounded by wide streets on all four sides, and will have terrific visibility and more light and air."

The building is unusual in another aspect as well. Part of its foundation is shared with the new terminus of the No. 7 train, which is facing delays but will likely open next year. To finish the project, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority is leasing the Moinian site from the firm until summer 2015. The two projects are so closely intertwined that the MTA built some of the foundation for the 1.8 million-square-foot 3 Hudson Blvd.

The permit that the developer is filing this week will allow it to start building its portion of the concrete, below-grade structure alongside the public authority. The firm has decided it will be more efficient to simply hire the same contractor to do both parts, but that has not been finalized.

"It is safer, since we will not be building over an operating station, and it is cheaper for everybody," Mr. Brecher said, noting that the arrangement will also save the MTA from having to build a temporary structure over the station once it is up and running.

New Details Emerge For Massive Manhattan West Development



Quote:
A new promotional video for Brookfield's massive Manhattan West project premiered a few changes for the 5.4 million-square-foot multi-building development bounded by 32nd and 33rd streets and Ninth and Tenth avenues in the Hudson Yards District. The video for the office-hotel-retail-residential development was first spotted by New York YIMBY, who astutely notes that the development's Skidmore, Owings & Merrill-designed residential tower has a slightly more seamless look from renderings of yore and will rise 64 stories, despite earlier reports of a more stout 60-story height, and have 790 apartments.



The video also mentions a "Breezeway" from Tenth Avenue which would connect the development due east of Related's Hudson Yards to the High Line at 30th Street. The walkway would be a huge aid to pedestrian traffic between the west side, Hudson Yards, and Manhattan West. A lot of effort and planning has gone into making the Hudson Yards District pedestrian friendly, especially with the inclusion of Hudson Park which will eventually stretch from West 33rd Street to West 39th Street between Hudson Boulevards East and West.

175 W. 60th St. Well Underway




Quote:
The last we checked in on 175 West 60th Street, at the end of March, the foundation had just been poured, but the tower had yet to go vertical. In the five months since then, the tower has reached its seventh story, and construction is now progressing more rapidly.

The building on the corner of 60th Street and 10th Avenue is a residential project by Glenwood Management. Despite being rentals, the apartments will be quite luxurious – the building has 289,244 square feet of net residential floorspace divided over just 256 units, yielding an average unit size of over 1,100 square feet.

Retired Italian Soccer Stars Want to Give Hudson St. A Hotel



Quote:
A new hotel may soon be rising at the corner of Hudson and Canal Streets in Soho/Hudson Square/whatever this area is called. Tribeca Citizen looked into the somewhat confusing site, and found a website for a project called the Hudson Square Hotel, to be located on said site. According to the website, the project is still in the very early stages, but it's being developed by Rafi Gibly and two former Italian soccer stars, Paolo Maldini and Christian Vieri (apparently the pair also has a fashion label and a few restaurants in Milan). No plans have been filed for the development, but the website, which has a few renderings of the proposed building, says it would be a 30,000-square-foot luxury hotel with 50 to 60 guest rooms, including suites and a penthouse.

Can Gary Barnett Build a Second One57 in Times Square?



Quote:
News about 740 Eighth Avenue has been scarce since the office tower plans from Related Companies and Boston Properties fell through and they traded the site to Gary Barnett's Extell Development. But an article in Deadline Hollywood now sheds some light on the future of the property: Jeremy Gerard writes that, "Barnett reputedly is planning another super-skyscraper along the lines of One57." Hey, we didn't say it shed a surprising light.

Two Trees' Giant Dock Street Dumbo Project Finally Revealed



Quote:
After years of delays, Two Trees' huge Dock Street Dumbo project is finally on the up and up (and moving quite quickly), but the developer has not released any new renderings since things started moving along last year, save for the blurry image that was posted on the construction fence, leaving everyone wondering if the 2008 vision still stood. Well we can wonder no longer. The marketing team for the 290-unit building sent along the first update image. The vantage point is what one would have while standing under the Brooklyn Bridge at the corner of Front and Dock Streets. Clearly, the facade will be glassy and reflective, as the rendering shows the bridge on the side of the building.
Here's Dock Street Dumbo in June:

Revealed: 125 Greenwich Street to Stand 1,356 Feet, Rivaling One World Trade Center



Quote:
YIMBY has the reveal for 125 Greenwich Street, which will become Downtown’s tallest residential skyscraper; a tipster close to the development passed along images and schematics confirming the tower’s significant growth spurt, and it will stand 1,356 feet tall. The project was formerly known as 22 Thames, but traded hands earlier this year, when Michael Shvo and Bizzi & Partners purchased the site for $185 million; the deal closed last week, signaling that plans are close to moving forward.

Rafael Vinoly designed the original 961-foot tower for the site, and he has been retained as the architect; the new version will top-out just a dozen feet shy of One World Trade Center’s roof, making it the second tallest building in Lower Manhattan — and the first Downtown residential skyscraper to rival the supertalls of 57th Street. The transition from rentals to condominiums explains the sudden bump in height.

432 Park Avenue’s oblique Downtown sibling will be similarly slim, soaring 77 stories at a pencil-like width. The floor count has only gone up by seven, and the majority of the height increase can be attributed to the enormous ceilings; slab heights are 13 feet through the 38th floor, 16 feet from 40-65, and an enormous 24 feet from 67 through 77 (per the zoomable site-plan and stacking diagram).

Permits Filed: 68 Trinity Place Gets Height Increase, Will Stand 44 Stories Tall



Quote:
The first permits are up for a new 44-story mixed-use tower at 68 Trinity Place, which has apparently seen a height increase since Pelli Clarke Pelli was chosen to design, last July.

Trinity Church will occupy 93,180 square feet on the first seven floors, while 111 residences will split 157,185 square feet on upper levels. The tower’s total scope will measure 250,995 square feet, and it will stand 499 feet tall. The 42nd and 43rd floors will each have one penthouse residence.

Pelli Clarke Pelli’s scheme placed a 25-story tower atop a seven-story base, so the residential component has apparently stretched skinner and taller. This would not be unexpected given the vertical progression of other projects in the neighborhood, many of which will soar well over 500 feet.

What an original and innovative design by Vinoly.

Nice, a little brother for 432 Park Avenue in Downtown! It should provide some interesting photos with 1WTC when it's done.

I hope it will have some cladding fins like the last design.

For Rafael Vinoly.

OMFG. That sore thumb called 432 Park Ave really opened the Pandora's Box. Another threat to the cityscape by Vinoly. And now it's even attacking the WTC! It also shows how this Vinoly guy absolutely isn't capable to come up with something that is new and has some verve.

Taste, where art thou?

Van der Rohe knew how to make these concepts work.
But neither applies to this nothingness of a tower by Vinoly. If it does, then explain what makes you think so.
