One Vanderbilt May Offer Sky-High Observation Deck



Quote:
...At a presentation last night about the project, hosted by Open House New York and put on by Jamie van Klemperer, president of Kohn Pedersen Fox (the project’s architect), we learned some exciting new details about the top of the 68-story, 1,514-foot zigzag building.

The four-part contrapuntal structure will feature a transparent topper, which is currently envisioned as a public event space and observatory. And since One Vanderbilt will clock in as the third tallest office tower in the city, this look-out spot could possibly sit higher than the one at One World Trade Center, which offers views at 1,250 feet above ground. Specific renderings of the top of the tower haven’t yet been released, and the architects note that the use is subject to change.

REVEALED: Lions Group Developing Complementary Skyscrapers in Long Island City



Quote:
Just north of Long Island City‘s Court Square and its once lonely Citigroup Building, the Long Island-based Lions Group will erect a complementary pair of residential towers fronting opposite sides of Jackson Avenue. Sensibly dubbed Jackson East (26-32 Jackson Avenue) and Jackson West (27-01 Jackson Avenue), the project is just one of the more than two dozen high-rise developments underway in LIC’s Court Square / Queens Plaza area.

While details remain scarce, renderings recently posted on the Lions Group’s website depict that the taller east tower will rise nearly 40 stories while the shorter west building will be about 30.

Riverside's really getting crowded, but in some oppressive way. At least the park piers will still get enough sunshine, being located on the southside.

Long Island City's development is long overdue. It's getting too many glassy towers though imho, it should get some nice classic-style setback towers in stone cladding, too. That'd provide balance and a more interesting and classy appeal.

That would be nice but almost everything going up in LIC is either rentals or hotels. That usually means developers will go to more affordable options. No Robert AM Sterns likely in da LIC...

Revealed: 600 West 58th Street, 65-Unit Mixed-Use Project by Durst



Quote:
Back in January of 2014, YIMBY reported that permits were filed for a new building at 600 West 58th Street, on the corner of Eleventh Avenue. And now, we have a rendering of the project, which is being developed by Durst and designed by Studio V Architecture.

The lot is the only remaining vacant parcel on the block bounded by 57th and 58th streets and 11th Avenue and West Street, with the other two buildings on the block also developed by Durst. The Helena was completed back in 2003, while the Bjarke Ingels-designed 625 West 57th Street is still under construction.

The building set to rise at 600 West 58th Street will be an 80/20 rental project, with 53 market-rate units and 12 affordable apartments. The building will stand 10 stories tall and span almost 120,000 square feet, split between a sizable retail and community facility component, with apartments above. The ratio has shifted towards more commercial space since permits were initially filed, and they had previously indicated the project would have 120 apartments.
It's curious that Durst would build such a short tower in that location. I'm guessing all available air rights were suctioned away by neighboring developments...

Citi-Owned LIC Site Could Give Rise to a 40-Story Building



Quote:
When Citigroup erected its Long Island City tower in the 1980s, it hoped to spur an office district that would become a less-expensive Midtown offshoot. Now, 30 years later amidst company-wide post-recession woes and the neighborhood's residential boom, the financial institution is abandoning that dream. The Times and TRD report that the bank is looking to sell a 36,000-square-foot development lot adjacent to the Citigroup Building, where once they planned a third Court Square tower, for a sum between $140 million and $150 million. The lot, bounded by 44th Road, 44th Drive, and 23rd Street, could give rise to a 40-story office, retail, hotel, or apartment tower.

Citigroup has been slowly selling off its stake in its Long Island City properties...

That is tiny, but it is nice to see some quality low-rise infill!

The massive amount of development in Long Island City right now is baffling, really nice to see! The area is cool but could use some redevelopment, I imagine its proximity to astoria could be an attractive feature for companies looking to relocate offices in NYC, and to attract millennials. I just hope a ton of these actually become reality.

New Look: 520 West 20th Street



Quote:
Earlier this week, YIMBY posted the first renderings for an office project underway at 520 West 20th Street, between the High Line and Eleventh Avenue. Now, we have a new look at the project courtesy of its architect, Morris Adjmi, which gives a much better idea of where the design stands. Eli and James Haddad (doing business as the Carolina Manufacturing Co.) are developing.

35 Cooper Square, Marymount Manhattan College Dorm



Quote:
The construction netting has finally come off 35 Cooper Square, and the Marymount Manhattan College dorm building has finally been revealed to the world.

Located on the western edge of the East Village near NoHo between East Fifth and Sixth streets, just above where the Bowery branches off into Third and Fourth avenues, the dorm building rises 13 stories and 133 feet into the air. The developer – Bhatia Development, led by Arun Bhatia – has also designed buildings for the New School in the past, along with the 47-story Capri on East 55th Street, which houses some of Marymount Manhattan’s other dorm rooms. Kossar + Garry Architects was responsible for its design.

Yeah, LIC is indeed filling up with towers. Well maybe there's room for a few more:

Tishman Speyer's Long Island City Towers Will Look Like This



Quote:
A construction fence rendering has been posted of the three residential towers that developer Tishman Speyer is bringing to Long Island City, giving us, if not a complete picture of what the buildings will look like, at least an idea of their general shape and size. The towers, located at 28-34 Jackson Avenue, 28-10 Jackson Avenue, and 30-02 Queens Boulevard, will contain a total of 1,789 apartments and 15,500 square feet of retail space, and will also be haunted by the ghosts of a formerly prominent Queens family. Construction is expected to be finished in June 2018, according to the signage.
For projects built as of right, the first inklings of the design are often what gets posted at the job site.

Landmarked Synagogue Moves Forward With Condo Neighbor



Quote:
In late December, landmarks unanimously approved plans to demolish a community facility adjoined to Congregation Shearith Israel in the Central Park West Historic District, and now West Side Rag reports that scaffolding has appeared around the dejected structure. According to WSR, the congregation has been in talks with the community to develop a new facility—topped by five stories of apartments, no less—at 8 West 70th Street off of Central Park West for the last 30 years.
