252 E. 57th St.

Awaited East Side Tower Hopes To Equal 57th Street Hype



Quote:
Although the buildings that are coming to define the corridor are in their infancy, the rush to 57th has already endowed the street's addresses with the kind of clout reserved for those of the city's more iconic avenues. And it seems the esteem is here to stay. Developers World-Wide Group and Rose Associates are so certain of this that they've wandered all the way over to Second Avenue—yes, still on 57th Street—to construct a 65-story luxury tower with both rentals and condos.

Although the building is, in comparison to its skyline-domineering neighbors, far away from it all, it oozes the same stuff of luxury.

These interiors look like they were just moved from the 400 Park Ave. S tower (page 250). The kitchen even has the same recessed central part.

David Chipperfield Designing 20 West 40th Street



Quote:
20 West 40th Street [Chipperfield]: A tipster sent along word that David Alan Chipperfield has been selected as the design architect of 20 West 40th Street, to be developed by HFZ Capital. Chipperfield was also the architect behind the renovation and conversion of the American Radiator Building just down the block, heading the icon’s transformation into the Bryant Park Hotel.

Revealed: Three-Towered Plan for East River Plaza, Harlem’s New Tallest Buildings



Quote:
Earlier this fall, filmmaker Andrew Padilla got his hands on the massing diagram of Forest City Ratner’s proposed East River Plaza redevelopment. The portion of the mall on FDR Drive between East 117th and 119th Streets would give rise to three fifty-odd-story buildings. And now, YIMBY has the first semi-detailed look at the plans, designed by TEN Arquitectos.

The three towers would rise atop two podiums placed over the existing mall and parking garage. Previously posted diagrams reveal the tallest of the group will stand 575 feet to its pinnacle, which is certainly tall for Upper Manhattan – taller than 1800 Park Avenue will be, even – but nothing extraordinary for New York City.

Still, the trio of high-rises would dwarf the surrounding tenements and even the public housing farther afield, with even the two shorter buildings clocking in at 515 and 455 feet tall. (The towers are only 47-, 41-, and 32-stories tall, but are boosted an extra 100 or so feet by the mall and transfer decks on which they would be built.)

12 Years In The Making, Fulton Center Finally Opens



Quote:
At 5 a.m. this morning, the first commuters passed through the brand new, $1.4 billion Fulton Center. The station was conceived in 2002 as a way to connect the "spaghetti mess" of 10 subway lines, and to help revitalize and rebuild downtown after 9/11. The Fulton Center is a key part of Lower Manhattan's rebuilding, and even though it was plagued by delays (it's only seven years late) and cost overruns (it was supposed to cost $750 million), it's opening is a pretty big deal. As such, everyone from the New York Times to the American Institute of Architects to commuting Instagrammers has weighed in on the "magical," "monumental," and "gleaming" new station...

Article today suspiciously included Solow’s project in a rendering at the bottom of page which prompted me to do some digging:

Could this project be back on?? Forbes profile on Solow was updated today which indicates this is ready to break ground. I wonder if the original plan/ architect would still be retained. Past articles on this project originally mentioned that each tower would rival Trump UN tower.

The East side deserves some love construction wise with this, JDS and Maki’s projects could be game changing along with re-imagining the east midtown waterfront esplanade revitalization.

Profile updated today (11/13/14) for Solow’s Forbes profile:

New York real estate mogul Sheldon Solow is finally set to break ground on a 275-unit residential building on the Con Edison Redevelopment site on Manhattan's East River. He paid $630 million for the property in 2005, but the project stalled amid the Great Recession and a lawsuit filed by his former partners that was eventually settled in 2010.

There's still a thread for this gargantuan orgy of Richard Meier glass somewhere...

Is this building going to be like the leadenhall hall building? As in all of the mechanicals are in the core at the rear of the building?

This article might give you some idea of what Trinity Church has come to represent in the last decade:

http://nypost.com/2012/03/18/trinity...ravagant-ways/

"Instead of helping the poor, Cooper’s helped himself — with demands for a $5.5 million SoHo townhouse, an allowance for his Florida condo, trips around the world including an African safari and a fat salary.

Rather than building an endowment, he is accused of wasting more than $1 million on development plans for a luxury condo tower that has been likened to a pipe dream and burning another $5 million on a publicity campaign.

Cooper, 67, whose compensation totaled $1.3 million in 2010, even added CEO to his title of rector. He began listing himself first on the annual directory of vestry members.

The atmosphere has become so poisonous that nearly half the 22 members of the vestry, or board, have been forced out or quit in recent months."

The loss of that building is sickening enough, but the undermining and corruption of an institution meant for good works is despicable.
