Revealed: 229 Lexington Avenue



Quote:
On the eastern side of Lexington Avenue, between 33rd and 34th Streets, two older low-rise buildings spanning 227-229 Lexington Avenue are currently awaiting demolition to make way for a new residential development. And now, YIMBY has the first renderings of the project, which was designed by C3D Architecture.



Albert Shirian of the NY Lions Group is the developer, and the new structure will stand 14 stories tall. With only 40 units, the building will be of a smaller scale than typical new developments in the neighborhood; that list includes 160 Madison Avenue and the soon-to-rise 172 Madison Avenue, both located just two blocks to the west. ...

I'll settle for it. Glad there's at least no random cladding or faux Kaufmanesque brick

It's a very preliminary conceptualization but the high-profile site excludes the chances of a Kaufman nightmare (which usually get buried in obscure midblock locations anyway ).

Plant-Covered Apartment Building to Rise on Union Avenue



Quote:
EcoRise Union Avenue, a new seven-story, 18-unit apartment building coming to 305 Union Avenue in Williamsburg, is, as the name suggests, meant to be somewhat environmentally oriented. To that end, some initial renderings spotted by NY YIMBY reveal that the building's glass and metal facade will be covered in patches of greenery. Garrison Architects, who are behind the design, explain on their website that, "Layered over the fašade are stainless steel mesh trellises for growing climbing plants. When the filled out with greenery these will add a living texture that will ripple in the breeze and change color with the seasons." It's doubtful that these renderings really capture what the finished product will look like, so this is one to keep an eye out for.

3 World Trade Center Finally Funded, Will Open in 2018



Quote:
The long-stalled 3 World Trade Center finally has a green light to build after developer Larry Silverstein sold $1.6 billion of tax-exempt Liberty Bonds to finance the project. Municipal market conditions, only after the previous month, allowed the deal to pan-out leaving the project fully-funded. Crain's reports that Goldman Sachs placed $1.1 billion of senior bonds maturing in 30 years at a 5 percent yield. For non-numbers folk, that all means the 2.8 million-square-foot, 80-story tower is a go after being stuck at seven stories for several years

Massive Tech Complex Floated For The Red Hook Waterfront



Quote:
It seems that Italian developer Est4ate Four has made it its mission to change Red Hook, first with its luxury condo development at 160 Imlay Street that brought the neighborhood a new slew of very expensive apartments (which is somewhat surprisingly 70 percent sold after just one month on the market), and now word comes that the group is planning a "tech campus" for the neighborhood. The massive, 1.1 million-square-foot complex—an area, YIMBY points out, that's equivalent to a "Manhattan skyscraper's worth of floor space"—will stretch between Coffey and Wolcott streets, and Ferris Street and New York Harbor. The complex will take over several pre-war brick buildings, and add space with glass toppers. Some of the buildings on the lot, like the New York Daily News's old printing press, will be razed. Architecture firm NBBJ is working on the project, which appears to also bring a waterfront promenade to the area.

Zeckendorfs Lock Down $450M For 520 Park Avenue



Quote:
Remember that $130 million penthouse? The record-breaking listing made waves after developer Arthur Zeckendorf revealed the nine-figure asking price for the triplex penthouse at his 520 Park Avenue to Bloomberg News this September.

Now, Mr. Zeckendorf, who with his brother William forms the development team behind much of the city’s fanciest—and most elegant—housing, is one step closer to making some Russian oligarch’s dreams of cash stashery come true. The Zeckendorfs closed on a $450 million construction loan to build the 31-unit Park Avenue condominium tower earlier this month, a source close to the deal told Mortgage Observer. The mortgage has not yet hit city records.

The perhaps unlikely lender was a London-based philanthropic organization called the Children’s Investment Fund, the source said.

I thought that brick building was getting demolished, not reclad. I wonder what the future cladding will be.
