I love the design and its juxtaposition with the gritty surroundings

You love the gritty surroundings? Hipster much? Do you not care about cities being better and more civilized places through good design and the eradication of blight?

Who the hell would even pay a million dollar-range price tag for a unit here?

Yes, I like some grit.. not necessarily the same thing as blight. Areas of cities with a balance of grit and modernness are the most interesting visually to me. Yes, this usually corresponds to the hipster areas.

The Grit is actually what makes the city real - there are reasons for the grit and they don't make it a bad place. You can sanitise areas and make them functionally beautiful but they lose some soul. No doubt those buildings will go very soon but currently they provide a great urban moment.

Appreciating all aspects of a city and not wanting it to be disney land does not make you a 'hipster'.

Why do people even associate 'hipsters' as bad? They are some of the most progressive people I know and they always have good taste, from my experience.

Put me down as someone who enjoys grit. If everything was organized and sanitized the city would loose the element of surprise and the unexpected.

And I'm pretty sure many people are willing to pay $1M and up to live in this location...

This Angular Tower Could Rise on FiDi's 19 Beekman Street


http://newyorkyimby.com/2014/10/firs...an-street.html

Quote:
The on-the-market lot at 19 Beekman Street has been given the "this could rise here" treatment. C3D Architecture designed the pictured mid-sized paneled tower which seems to exist mostly as a marketing tool for the site that currently houses a six-story office building, but could accommodate a 161,596-square-foot tower. Developer Roonie Oved purchased 19 Beekman Street for $11.2 million in late 2012, YIMBY says; it is currently listed (PDF!) for an unspecified price. Despite the site's lack of height restrictions, building rights allow a tower similar in size to the nearby 30-story, 168-apartment The Lara, or Naftali Group's in-construction 34-story tower of dorm rooms at 33 Beekman Street. -per NY YIMBY

Community Board Approves $1B Silvercup Studios Expansion



Quote:
It's been just a few weeks since the announcement that the long-delayed expansion of Long Island City's Silvercup Studios was back on the table. Now, the proposed Silvercup West has cleared the first hurdle, with Queens Community Board 2 voting near unanimously to approve special permits for the $1 billion project.

The proposed 2.2 million-square-foot film studio/mixed-use complex would flank the Queensboro Bridge. It would include eight sound stages, an office tower, 1,000 apartments (20 percent of which would probably be designated affordable), and a 1,400-space parking garage, as well as cultural and retail space. As for the replication of the iconic Silvercup sign, the CB is pushing the developers to use original rather than modern materials for preservation purposes.

Now, Silvercup West must gain the approval of the Department of City Planning, which—along with the Queens Borough President and the City Council—supported the initial proposal back in 2006.

Just loosely project-related (well, it's all due to skyscrapers), very interesting graphic nonetheless:

Day-time vs. night-time population of New York's core

I don't know how that translates into numbers exactly, though.

Manhattan's daytime population rises to 3.94 million on a typical workday, more than 2.5 times its resident population (1.64 million).

On a typical weekend day it still almost doubles in daytime population with 2.9 million people

On a weekday night the population still remains above the resident population at 2.05 million

1800 Park Avenue Is Definitely Going to Stand Out in Harlem



Quote:
1800 Park Avenue, the peak of which will reach 352 feet, will be the tallest building in Harlem. It will also be among the most reflective judging by the new renderings scrounged up by NY YIMBY. The new renderings mostly show the building off from the same angles as the old ones, but are much clearer, putting in stark contrast the extent to which this development is unlike anything in its immediate vicinity. Bruce Eichner is developing the 32-story, 682-unit (20 percent affordable) tower, and ODA contributed the very-ODA design.

Midtown Board Rejects Bid To Landmark the Park Lane Hotel



Quote:
In a contentious and lengthy hearing Monday evening, the landmarks committee of Midtown's Community Board 5 rejected a bid to have the 43-year-old Park Lane Hotel designated both an exterior and interior landmark. While community boards don't hold any actual power, they are advisory bodies whose decisions are carefully considered by city agencies like the Landmarks Preservation Commission. While the session was about the past and present, many fear what it will mean for the future.

The 46-story building, located at 36 Central Park South between Fifth and Sixth avenues was designed by the firm Emery Roth & Sons, and completed in 1971 at the commission of Harry Helmsley. It is a through-block building and the tallest building on Central Park South. It features a limestone and glass exterior, as well as a semi-circular driveway on 58th Street (the only "unique" feature committee member Renee Cafaro could come up with).

LOL Goodbye ugly Leona Helmsley POS, hello 850+ foot tower!

45 Park Place: Tribeca’s Latest Condo Tower Could be an Architectural Stunner



Quote:
New images have been uncovered of an upcoming 39-story condominium tower poised to rise from a storied site in Tribeca. Curbed first broke the rendering reveal back in July and a representative of the developers noted that tower depicted in renderings are not quite final. Nevertheless new images posted on of SOMA Architects’ website give us additional glimpses of what the project could be.

Simply known as 45 Park Place (for now), the development is comprised of a 665-foot tower luxury tower and an Islamic museum, is being developed by a consortium led by Soho Properties, headed by Sharif El-Gamal. The tower is being crafted by Michel Abboud of SOMA Architects, with Ismael Leyva serving as the architect of record. Renderings posted on SOMA’s website convey a light, airy tower composed of stem-like volumes bundled by delicate bands of lattice-like mullions. The ground-level view gives us our first glimpse of the adjacent Islamic museum and prayer space reportedly designed by Pritzker Prize–winning French architect Jean Nouvel. A small plaza fronting the museum will expose a vegetated side wall of the neighboring building that houses popular downtown grocer Amish Market.

Demolition permits filed this past spring will seal the fate of a small cast-iron structure and an Italian Renaissance styled building that housed a Burlington Coat Factory prior to 9/11. Construction permits call for a 120,000-square-foot tower containing 46 units. Just last month, a press release announced that the development secured $33 million in first mortgage financing, and construction of the tower is expected to begin next year with a completion date anticipated sometime in 2017.

Looks really good

The Harlem tower also looks good, the cladding has a bit of a cool 70s vibe to it.

Still the top dog.

These are the top cities for property investment
http://www.cnbc.com/id/102066229

Quote:


The global property investment market grew to $788 billion in the year to June 2014, with New York hanging on to its title as the top city for investment, a new report shows.

According to Cushman & Wakefield (C&W), global real estate investment volumes rose 17.2 percent in the twelve months to June 2014, as cross-border and domestic investments increased 38.8 and 11.3 percent respectively.

For the fourth consecutive year, New York has claimed the top spot with volumes growing 12.6 percent year-on-year to $55.4 billion, capturing 7 percent of global market share.

But second-placed London is hot on the heels of the Big Apple, with a 40 percent surge in investment activity to $47.2 billion fueled by cross-border investors. The U.K. capital remains "by far" the most favored market among international players, attracting a 14.1 percent share of international capital ahead of Paris -5.5 percent – and New York's 4.9 percent.

The big movers

The cities making up the top ten remain little changed and very U.S-heavy. The list is comprised of New York, London, Tokyo, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Paris, Chicago, Washington D.C., Dallas and Hong Kong.

However "while gateway cities remain a primary focus for investors, interest in a broader spread of locations is increasingly apparent due to improved confidence and finance availability as well as a lack of supply in core cities", Carlo Barel di Sant'Albano, international CEO at C&W wrote in the report.

As such, Singapore, Moscow, Seoul and Toronto were ousted from the top 20 by Shanghai, Beijing, Miami and Stockholm, but these moves, notes the report, "are relatively small".

Dubai and Dublin however saw significant change by featuring in the top 50 this year, up from their previous respective rankings at 186 and 82.
