I know I asked this before but no one answered. Does anyone know if 2 Court Square will be completed? There is currently a building boom in LIC, and that blank wall facing Manhattan is hideous! It was supposed to be 38 floors but was capped at 15 due to recession. Are there any plans to build phase 2 of the building now?

400 Park Avenue South Reveals Interiors, Lots of Floorplans



Quote:
The Fortress of Glassitude at 400 Park Avenue South has been kickin' around for a decade, and now she's thisclose to launching sales. The final product is an crystalline Christian de Portzamparc creation that will hold Equity Residential rental apartments on the bottom 22 floors, and Toll Brothers condos on the top 18 levels. Leasing and sales are imminent, and today, Toll Brothers dropped buckets of floorplans and renderings for the 81 condos with the launch of the project's website. Thanks to the building's unique shape, there are dozens of different unit layouts, and sizes range from 664-square-foot studios to four-bedrooms, with the bulk of the units being one-, two-, and three-bedroom homes. Detailed pricing has still not be released, but homes will start around $1 million, and the 40th floor penthouse will priced around $20 million.

65-Story Tower Planned Across from City Point in DoBro



Quote:
Downtown Brooklyn is to Brooklyn what 57th Street is to Manhattan: ground zero for the borough's tallest residential towers. New York YIMBY spotted permits for yet another sky-scraping apartment building in the ever-popular neighborhood. This one, located at 420 Albee Square across the street from City Point, will rise 65 stories and 679 feet, eclipsing both the current tallest tower, 388 Bridge Street, and the soon-to-be tallest tower, Avalon Willoughby West (but then they'll all be topped by the JDS-developed, SHoP-designed 340 Flatbush Avenue Extension). The permits were filed by developer JEMB Realty and architecture firm SLCE.

New Woolworth Building Condos Reveal First Glimpse Inside



Quote:
The eagerly anticipated Alchemy Properties condo conversion of the top floors of the historic Woolworth Building is nearing closer to a sales launch, and in the meantime, the Times reveals the first renderings of the interiors and a few amenities. Above, what the reconstructed 55-foot-long pool in the basement—long abandoned—will look like, with a sauna, hot tub, and, crucially, tiles by Bisazza Mosaico. As the sales office readies to open, the model apartment has "prewar proportions, dark herringbone floors and marble-clad bathrooms." Designed by Thierry Despont, the 34 apartments of the Woolworth Residences will start at $3.875 million (floorplans!) and asking prices climb skyward, culminating in a whopping $110 million for the seven-level penthouse, a.k.a. "The Castle in the Sky."

Before I release such a visualization to the public I would check with a peer group of 10 people what they think the people in these shower cabins are doing...

- Each bedroom has its own bathroom: check
- Walk-in-closet for master bedroom: check
- Plenty of storage space: check

My only criticism would be that the two smaller bedrooms are not very big and a big bed might not really fit in there... but that's a luxury problem!

This high-profile hotel Project shall be the first $100-MM+ non-Union construction project in New York City history.

It's one of those oft-overlooked projects.
