We have a winner!

BREAKING: Hudson Companies / Marvel Architects Announced as Brooklyn Heights Library Developer:



Quote:
The Hudson Companies and Marvel Architects (designers of the Pierhouse and 1 Hotel at Brooklyn Bridge Park) have been identified as the development team of choice for a new residential tower on the library site that will include a new branch for BPL. The developer’s proposed bid of approximately $60 million would not only allow BPL to invest $10 million in outfitting a 21,000 square foot library but will allow for $40 million in capital funding for other needy branches in BPL’s system as well as an 8,000 square foot temporary library to be located at Our Lady of Lebanon Church (113 Remsen Street).

A final vote on the proposal is scheduled for BPL’s board meeting to be held at 5:30 tonight at the Library’s Grand Army Plaza location.

The project, following expected approval by the full BPL board, will then go through thorough public review, including ULURP (Universal Land Use Review Process)—the City’s process for reviewing the sale of public land, which the Brooklyn Heights Library branch sits on—as well as a number of key political decision-makers, including Council Member Steve Levin, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, Mayor Bill de Blasio and the New York City Council.

I concur. NY was the first (and remains the true) capital of the US. It makes sense that former presidents flock here.

Crosby Street Condos, 210 West 77th, and 252 East 57th all look amazing! Great materials and architects that know how to use them are really beautifying New York City's streets!

In other news, Trump SoHo will go bankrupt soon.

The unsellable condo-hotel units, which can only be used by owners for 120 days per year, show that the property never really recovered from the financial crisis.
That might be why, or it might be the death rays!

Self-Proclaimed 'Next 15 CPW' Is Poised To Launch



Quote:
Here's one more building to add to the master list of buildings that will launch sales this fall: a representative for the Robert A.M. Stern-designed 520 Park Avenue has reached out to say that it, too, will avail itself to the world in the coming months. That is, avail itself to a very small portion of the world; the Zeckendorfs-developed tower will follow in the footsteps of the outrageously expensive 15 Central Park West and 18 Gramercy Park before it. "Simplexes will start 'in the teens,'" the representative writes. Unfortunately they mean the teens of the million variety, "and duplexes around $60 million." Sigh.

Dock Street Dumbo Development Nears Completion



Quote:
Is it just us, or did the huge development formerly known as Dock Street Dumbo (now 60 Water Street) go from giant hole in the ground to giant building in no time at all? Professional construction-watcher Field Condition snapped some photos of the 290-unit building yesterday, and it looks like its very close to the finish line. Just three more floors on the 17-story tower need their glass. The market rate rentals, for which prices have not been revealed, should be hitting the market within the next few weeks, and the project, designed by LEESER Architects and Ismael Leyva Architects, will be ready for occupancy by the end of the year.

Downtown-close, Dumbo-convenient!

Silvercup's Tower-Tastic $1B Expansion Makes A Comeback



Quote:
Remember Silvercup West, the massive three-tower extension of Long Island City's famed film and television production studio? Probably not. That's because chatter of the undertaking has been on the outs for the past, oh, six years. But now, Queens Courier and Q'Stoner report that the $1 billion expansion is back on the table. The studio has filed special permit renewals with Queens Community Board 2's land use committee. If actualized, the project will bring a 2.2 million-square-foot complex with eight sound studios, an office tower, 1,000 apartments, a 1,400-space parking garage, and cultural and retail space to the site just south of the Queensboro Bridge.

Jean Nouvel's 1,050-Foot MoMa Tower Will Finally Advance



Quote:
After ten years of trying, developer Hines has finally pinned down all the moving parts necessary to build their 1,050-foot-tall tower at 53 West 53rd Street. The so-called MoMA Tower—also known as Tower Verre, a moniker which, unlike the building, may not be moving ahead—was finally resuscitated with Hines' acquisition of 240,000-square-feet of air rights from the neighboring Museum of Modern Art and St. Thomas Episcopal Church, for which the development company paid $85.3 million, The Real Deal reports.

The project got a huge boost about a year ago when Hines, along with development partner Goldman Sachs, secured $1 billion in financing for the project from a bevy of Asian banks as well as the billionaire Kwee family of Singapore. The 82-story, 145-apartment tower is designed by Pritzker Prize-winning starchitect Jean Nouvel. Floors two through five will become absorbed by MoMA as part of their ferocious expansion plan. The Real Deal reports that construction is expected to commence shortly, and a sales office for the building is expected to open early next year.

Revealed in August, the building will total nearly 182,000 square feet in construction area, and will rise 432 feet. Demolition of the existing three-story structure is imminent.

Permits Filed For 700 ft. Hudson Rise Hotel At 470 11th Ave.



Quote:
As architects rush to file plans for new developments while they can still abide by the 2008 building code, we’ve seen a number of applications submitted for Far West Side towers, from Brookfield’s Manhattan West to Related’s Hudson Yards buildings.

And over the weekend came a filing for one of the lesser known, but no less impressive structures to eventually rise on the Far West Side: the Hudson Rise Hotel, at 462-470 11th Avenue, which YIMBY revealed in May. The tower will stand at the southeast corner of West 38th Street and 11th Avenue, across from the Javits Center, on land purchased for $115 million. Zoned primarily for commercial use, the site is too far from Penn Station and the new 7 train stop to be used for office development, so the developer has wisely chosen to build it out as a hotel.

Developed by Sean Ludwick’s Black House (supposedly in partnership with a Chinese private equity firm) and Siras Development, the mixed-use building will include 242 hotel rooms, 108 condo hotel rooms (which are purchased for part-time use, but must be rented out as hotel rooms for the majority of the year, as with the Trump SoHo) and 47 regular condominiums at the top. The tower will soar to 700 feet spread over just 47 stories, for very roomy average floor-to-floor heights of nearly 15 feet.

New Look: Williamsburg’s Futuristic 87 Wythe Avenue



Quote:
“We set out to design a building that was distinct from the kind of ‘faux-factory’ aesthetic that has characterized some recent Williamsburg development,” wrote Cycle Cities founder Tony Daniels. “You might find precedents for our approach in office buildings of the ’20s, with their setbacks and terraces that correspond to zoning envelope requirements, like the Bricken Casino Building, Squibb Building, the telephone buildings of Ralph Walker, etc.,” though of course 87 Wythe also adds thoroughly modern cantilevers to the mix.

“The form,” he continued, “also allows for each floor to have some dedicated outdoor terrace space and large shaded windows which frame views across the East River. The building aims to satisfy demand for office space in the neighborhood by tech, culture and media firms who could locate elsewhere, but choose to be in Brooklyn.”

Permits Filed: 1562 Second Avenue



Quote:
Amidst rounds of permits for projects from the distant future come filings for a building where construction is actually around the corner, at 1562 Second Avenue, on the northeast corner of 81st Street. YIMBY revealed the very well-received design back in May, and Icon Realty is developing, while Issac & Stern is the project’s architect.

The filings give exact specifics, and the project’s entirety will span 43,832 square feet, all of which will be residential besides a 2,192 square foot retail component, on the ground floor. Above, 12 apartments will average 3,400 square feet each, though the developer has not decided on whether the building will house condominiums or rentals just yet.

At 14 floors and 164 feet in height, ceiling heights will also be generous. The building will markedly improve a corner of the Upper East Side that will soon be much more accessible, thanks to the Second Avenue Subway’s 2016 opening date.

Columbia's Newest Building Shows Off Its 'Cascading' Stairs



Quote:
The newest addition to Columbia University is also the most fun to watch rise. The new home for Columbia University Medical Center's graduate program is a crazy zig-zagging tower with a "study cascade" designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro. The cascading floors and interesting angles are already very visible in the tower, which Field Condition recently photographed. The 14-story tower is now topped out, and pieces of the interior, like the prefabricated stairs that will fill those cascading ramps, are arriving at the site. The facade's curtain wall should be arriving soon, and the building will be complete sometime next year.
