First Look Inside 520 Park, Home of NYC's Priciest Apartment



Quote:
The eagle eyes over at BuzzBuzzHome spotted that the full website for 520 Park Avenue is live, baby. That means the very first renderings of the Robert A.M. Stern-designed apartments, which will be full-floor at a minimum. Building 31 apartments over 54 stories, Zeckendorf Development plans to ask $130 million for the penthouse of the classic-looking tower—whose entrance will sit on 60th Street between Park and Madison avenues. That's an ask that will handily best the current most expensive property in New York City, which is a combo in Battery Park City that wants $118.5M.

520 Park's new site holds the first looks at the streetside entranceway, the lobby, the "salon," the garden, the curving staircase that will grace the foyers of multi-floor residences, the master baths, and the views, as well as the tower in the context of its neighbors on the Upper East Side and in Midtown East...

520 Park looks wider and more imposing in those recent renders posted above. I like it. I also hope that the facade turns out to be that light/bright, but that may just be something the developers did to make it stand out in the renders.

What is it with projects that have affordable components looking better than most multimillion High Line trash?

I guess you have never been on the High Line, 'cause the majority of the new buildings in the MeatPacking District are beautiful.

I wasn't condemning everything along the High Line as some stuff looks great, like the IAC Building. Also, Zaha Hadid's proposed building is obviously a stunner. But Soori, 505 West 19th Street, and "The High Line?" Come on...

Ironically, none of those buildings you just quoted are even near the High Line.

Mmmh, maybe the Soori, but 505 West 19th Street is actually part of the High Line...

Anyway, they might not be experimental and groundbreaking buildings, but they are NOT "trash"

Trinity Place Development Site Could Sprout This Tower



Quote:
Here's a blast from the past: the former Syms store at 42 Trinity Place—once described as "comically depressing"—is being shopped around as a development site that could potentially birth the FXFOWLE-designed tower rendered above. But no matter what rises, it will be better than the fugly bunker that currently exists. It's been awhile since this beleaguered site, which includes 67-81 Greenwich Street, was in the news...

In 2011, Syms filed for bankruptcy, then 10 months later, the company emerged as Trinity Place Holdings with the goal of maximizing "the value of its commercial real estate." And in Manhattan, there's no better way to maximize profits than by selling to a condo developer. The site can hold a 300,000-square-foot mixed-use building as of right, and it could look something like this:

YIMBY caught more about this odd tower proposal: (including an actual address!)

Vision: Bancroft Building’s Replacement at 3 West 29th Street

Quote:
NoMad’s transformation is occurring at a breakneck pace all the way to 30th Street, and HFZ Capital’s project surrounding Collegiate Church may soon become one of the neighborhood’s largest residential towers. The site spans the width of the block, encompassing the former Bancroft Building at 3 West 29th Street, as well as 11 West 29th Street and 8-16 West 30th Street.

FR-EE’s vision looks to stand approximately 55 stories tall, which would make it one of the largest towers in the neighborhood. Nearby, 15 East 30th Street will stand 830 feet tall, and across the street, another 50+ story tower is slated to rise at 281 Fifth Avenue. ...

Because the site sits just outside of the Madison Square North Historic District, an adventurous design decision by HFZ will not be subject to the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s veto.

[...]
It definitely looks like something's up in the 'hood but will this be the final edit??

Two City Point Residential Towers Will Top Out By Year's End



Quote:
Downtown Brooklyn's mixed-use mega-development City Point is now well into its second phase, which is bringing a 19-story and a 30-story residential tower to the area bounded by Flatbush Avenue Extension and Fulton Street. The smaller of the two COOKFOX-designed towers will be priced completely below market rate. Together, they will bring 565,000-square-feet of housing and 660,000-square-feet of retail space to Downtown Brooklyn. Field Condition reports that the retail component, which will include CityTarget and an Alamo Drafthouse.



Look, it's the "Poor Door"!

One Developer May Tower-ize Upper East Side's Second Ave.



Quote:
Icon Realty Management is putting up fancy apartments all over Manhattan. (Well, at least in the East Village and the Lower East Side.) The prolific developer's next target: the hopping Upper East Side, of course. The Wall Street Journal outlines the mini-takeover Icon is staging along Second Avenue in the 80s. Essentially, the company bought up five consecutive low-rise tenement buildings on the east side of the street, just north of 80th Street. (It also owns another little property on 80th Street, just east of the corner.) It displaced a bunch of ground-floor institutions, included beloved long-time Chinese staple Pig Heaven, and now those structures are sitting vacant, angering nearby business owners with their lack of tenants who spend money at their shops.



The Journal confirms said rumors, and offers more information about another plot Icon owns just one block north, on the northeast corner of 81st Street and Second Avenue. That tower, which was heretofore the hypothetical prewar-looking building rendered above, is now more substantiated. Permits have been filed for a 14-story building that would replace the two avenue-facing low-rises on that corner, and pro-development blogger Nikolai Fedak tells the WSJ that he's seen the plans, designed by Isaac & Stern, for "11 floor-through apartments plus a duplex averaging 3,400 square feet each." It's unclear whether they will be condos or rentals.

[...]

I agree, I don't want any tower built there. If it was more to the left or right, maybe.

By the way, does anyone know what they will do with the plot of land that the Temporary UN Shed is currently sitting on once it's dismantled?
