Does this building have a thread? Is it the site in the foreground or the building in the background (blue glass cladding)?

Conceptual renderings for the Nordstrom Tower mocked up for New York YIMBY:

Extell's Nordstrom Tower Sure Is Going to Be Tall and Skinny



Quote:
NY YIMBY got their hands on some renderings of Extell's planned Nordstrom Tower at 217 West 57th Street. And, while it would be a stretch to say that the design of the building (glass, more glass) is in any way surprising, it would not be a stretch to say that it's going to be very, very tall, and very, very skinny. At 1,775 feet, the top of the spire will be one foot shy of One World Trade Center (now that's what you call deference), although, as YIMBY points out, since Midtown is higher above sea level than the Financial District, the Nordstrom tower will technically be the highest point in New York City. Until the next huge, glassy skyscraper comes along in about twenty minutes, that is.
One bit of news: roof height is now 1,490 ft.










Official renders are still being developed by Visualhouse for Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill.

Condos at Naftali's 210 West 77th Are Already On the Market



Quote:
The Naftali Group's new Upper West Side condo building on West 77th Street is so new that the parking garage it will be replacing isn't even gone yet, but four units in the not-even-under-construction building have hit the market. The early bird gets the buyers, yeah? The listings, ranging in price from $4.9 million to $12 million, bring a batch of new renderings and floorplans, providing the most comprehensive look of the building yet (though still no full exterior shot). Thomas Juul-Hansen, the most popular Dane in the city right now, is designing the building, which will rise 18 stories and hold 25 units.

The Met's Plaza & Fountains Are Finally Open After $65M Reno



Quote:
After almost two years of being shrouded behind blue plywood, the Metropolitan Museum of Art's giant new plaza is open. A preview this morning of the plaza's first renovation in more than 40 years revealed two new fountains with 48 fancy-schmancy jets apiece capable of veritable dance routines, 106 trees (double the number there before). There's also ample seating under red umbrellas, and new LED lights that will light up the facade at night. The biggest deal, though, is that as of tomorrow, all evidence of construction will be gone, and no fences will get in the way of a stroll along the west side of Fifth Avenue—for tourists and residents alike. The $65 million project was entirely funded by billionaire museum trustee and richest man in New York City David H. Koch, and the plaza bears his name.

While Forest City and Skanska duke it out over the fist tower at Pacific Park nee Atlantic Yards, work on the second tower is moving forward:

Permits Filed: 535 Carlton Avenue, Pacific Park



Quote:
COOKFOX has filed a new building permit for 535 Carlton Avenue, the next of the 15 buildings that will eventually rise at Pacific Park, né Atlantic Yards. The application is for a structure at the corner of Carlton and Dean, on terra firma, not the deck between Atlantic and Pacific. All of the 298 apartments will be let at below-market rates, with maximum household incomes ranging from $48,000 to $104,000 annually.

The building will rise 19 stories – tall for this corner of Downtown Brooklyn, but the shortest building in the complex once known as Atlantic Yards. Its total construction area will be 364,000 square feet, per the application, with a bit more than 275,000 square feet set aside for residential use, working out to average unit sizes of 925 square feet – generous, family-sized apartments, bigger than most new rentals in Brooklyn.

In contrast to the tower now rising — once known as B2 – 535 Carlton will be built using conventional rather than module construction techniques.

Juniors Owner Rejects $45 Million Cash Offer, Will Keep Serving Cheesecake



Quote:
Sentimentality and tradition have won out in a big way at the Downtown Brooklyn site of Junior's Most Fabulous Cheesecake and Desserts. The restaurant's owner, Alan Rosen, has divulged to the Times that after a summer's-worth of mulling, he has decided not to sell the valuable property at the corner of Flatbush Avenue Extension and Dekalb Avenue. The reason? Rosen told the Times of the building the restaurant has occupied since 1950, "This is Junior's identity, is this building. This is the one where I came on my first dates. It's where my family spent most of their waking hours ... Not the one down the street, not the one below 20 stories of condos. This one."

[...]

The site is backed by the development rights for a 20-story building, which itself is not all that notable in the in-flux neighborhood. But in April, the neighboring landmarked JP Morgan Chase announced it was interested in selling its air rights, which if acquired would allow a 50-story building on the Junior's site. In June, the Times reported that if the winning developer collected all of the development rights on the whole triangular block—as it may appear Chetrit was aiming to do with their late 2013 buy of Junior's neighbor at 340 Flatbush Avenue Ext.—a 1,000-foot skyscraper could be built. Now that's notable. But lo, Junior's has put the speculation over a new supertall tower on their lot to rest, all for the love of cheesecake.

Alma Realty Planning Large New Building in Long Island City



Quote:
This one seems to have flown under our radar, but apparently Astoria Cove-developer Alma Realty has been planning a massive new development in Long Island City since at least 2010. Known, at least at one point, as Alma Towers, the project was delayed and resurfaced in October of 2013, with plans calling for an 18-story building with 232 units (which means that the above rendering, with two buildings, is likely outdated).
It is outdated...

First Look Inside SOM's Undulating 252 East 57th Street Tower



Quote:
World Wide Group and Rose Associate's luxury tower at 252 (née 250) East 57th Street has maintained a pretty low profile throughout its development, considering its 57th Street locale and thus its apartments' inevitably outrageous price tags. Now the tower's full website launch gives the most substantial amount of info on and in-depth look into the SOM-designed building to-date. The tower will have an undulating glass facade, and will rise 65 stories. It's 93 condos will begin on the 36th floor, and be priced from $4.5 million. With newly revealed floorplans, the building's sales launch must be imminent.

First peek at 25-story hotel going up at 414 West 15th Street



Quote:
The first look at a new hotel on West 15th Street is now available. The building at 414 West 15th Street, designed by CetraRuddy, will be 25 stories and 285 feet tall. The hotel will be located between Ninth and Tenth avenues, right by Chelsea Market, according to New York YIMBY. The renderings look like the building will be dominated by gray brick and casement windows. - See more at: http://therealdeal.com/blog/2014/09/....EEwvZ1x2.dpuf

There is but the published versions are terrible and murky.



SOM could be holding back for some reason.

Expensive Crosby Street Condos Will Have $1M Parking Spots



Quote:
Sixteen months have passed since the Annabelle Selldorf-designed 42 Crosby Street passed muster with the Landmarks Preservation Commission, and now that the development is finally on the verge of skyward construction, the development team revealed more details (and a rendering) to the New York Times. The juiciest of those details is that the 10 underground parking spaces in the development will be offered for sale—technically, 99-year lease—at the mindboggling price of $1 million. As the paper points out, "more than four times the national median sales price for a home, which is $217,800." The 10 parking spots will range from 150 to 200 square feet, so that price works out to $5,000 to $6,666 per square foot, making the parking more expensive than the 10 units upstairs.

They think of everything!

825-Foot, 53-Story Residential Tower Coming to 15 East 30th Street (More in link)
http://newyorkyimby.com/2014/09/825-...th-street.html



Quote:
According to a permit application filed this morning, J.D. Carlisle intends to build a 53-story, 825-foot residential tower at 15 East 30th Street. Its height would make it the tallest building between Chambers Street and the Empire State Building, positioning it somewhere between the old RCA Building and CitySpire Center in the ranking of New York City’s tallest towers.

Handel Architects filed for the permit, but whether they’re the design architect or just the architect of record, we do not know – nobody from J.D. Carlisle was available for comment when we called.

The tower will hold nearly 370,000 square feet of space. Of that, 310,000 square feet will count towards the developer’s residential allotment, with a small 4,090-square foot commercial space. The permit indicates 188 apartments, for an average unit size of around 1,650 square feet.

Is there anything going on with this site as of late?

Even if there isn't, given the rapid development in this Greenwich Street South neighborhood, I'm sure something will commence sooner rather than later.

Emporis building page; looks like it had a previous hotel design by Gene Kaufman, 135 meters / 39 stories tall, now cancelled.

February 2012 article: Development Site On Market for $17 Million. "Priced at $17 million, 98-100 Greenwich Street has plans for the construction of a 24-story, 180-room boutique hotel, which is comprised of approximately 70,000 sq. ft. buildable. The site is currently occupied by a vacant five-story mixed-use building."

RealtyTrac building page; states that the building that used to stand here was built in 1929; also shows that the site was sold for $19 million in January 2013.

Status as of September 2014
