I still cannot believe that this tower is actually rising!

Landmarks Shoots Down New Wooster Street Building



Quote:
Plans for a new building on Wooster Street in Soho have been in the works for more than seven years, and the road to reality will be longer still. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission could not find its way to approving the eight-story building proposed for 150 Wooster Street between Prince and West Houston streets. While the direction of the design was appreciated, several commissioners wanted more integration of the steel at the base, more detailed windows, and a better resolution of the cornice.

First Look: ODA's Condos, Affordable Housing in Hell's Kitchen



Quote:
New York YIMBY has the full rendering reveal and intel on a new building headed for West 43rd Street between Tenth and Eleventh avenues. Developer El Ad Group is putting up condos and affordable housing on a platform above the Amtrak tracks; there would be 106 apartments, and 26 of them would be affordable. It wouldn't be that vertically prominent—only 15 stories at its tallest point—and amenities are pretty basic: bike storage; a rec room; and 23 parking spots. Permits haven't been approved yet, so this is all preliminary..

Work has begun on the first building at Domino: http://www.crainsnewyork.com/article...r-site-finally



Quote:
Jed Walentas breaks ground on Domino Sugar site, finally

A Brooklyn developer will announce Monday that construction workers have sunk a shovel into the ground on the Williamsburg waterfront for the first of five buildings destined to open at the site of the Domino Sugar refinery, dormant since 2004.

It's a day that just a year ago seemed like it might never come.

Back then, Jed Walentas, the co-head of Two Trees Management, clashed with the de Blasio administration over its demands for more affordable housing on the site, before ultimately agreeing to add another 40 such units to the 660 already planned. But the breakthrough came only after negotiations nearly collapsed. Later, Mr. Walentas and his father, David, publicly accused city officials of overplaying their hand at the bargaining table and risking derailing the entire project. Now, however, those disputes have been largely forgotten.

"Certainly we said things to the newspaper we shouldn't have said as an organization, and I think both sides probably think they could have conducted themselves better—we certainly do," Mr. Walentas said in an interview with Crain's. "But we have a good relationship with City Hall and the mayor's office, and like any relationship, sometimes you do things you wish you hadn't, but you move on and go forward."

Since then, the two sides have shifted gears and are now working in relative harmony, as evinced by the 500-unit rental building soon to rise on the inland side of Kent Avenue. The 16-story, SHoP *Architects-designed tower, with a large cutout in the middle, will include 105 apartments for low-*income residents, plus ground-floor retail space. It is scheduled to open in two years.

Another Huge New Tower May Rise Next to One Vanderbilt



Quote:
The Vanderbilt Corridor rezoning may spawn another enormous tower next door to rezone poster child One Vanderbilt. The Post reports that developer Howard Milstein is planning to replace his 1.1 million-square-foot office tower at 335 Madison Avenue with an even larger building, possibly containing a high end hotel. As it happens, that would return the site to its original use—335 Madison was built as the luxurious Biltmore Hotel in 1913 by architects Warren and Wetmore, but in 1984 the Milstein family gutted and stripped the landmarked building to the dismay of preservationists everywhere.

...and actual historically significant structures like the Bancroft Building are being demo'd. Pathetic.

Questionable Seventh Ave. Landmark Finally Razed For Condos



Quote:
Demolition has started at the site of the landmarked-but-not-really-worth-it triangular building at 130 Seventh Avenue South, DNAinfo reports. The site will give rise to a new high-end condo building designed by BKSK that won over the Landmarks Preservation Commission on its third try in April 2014. The building will replace embattled nightclub Veranda that shuttered amidst legal woes in 2013. The new six-story building between West 9th and West 10th streets is being developed by Greystone with Continental Ventures and Itzhaki Acquisitions. It will have five floor-through condos measuring about 2,500-square-feet each, and ground-floor retail. Demolition of the existing structure will last until about April, and the new building is expected to be complete 18 months following.

Developers Want To Spend $1Billion, Build a Hotel in Industry City



Quote:
Since its purchase in 2013 by a consortium of owners including Jamestown Properties—who just happen to be the successful converters of an old Nabisco factory into a bustling office-and-retail complex called Chelsea Market—Industry City has attracted new tenants from Rooftop Films to bakeries to 3-D printing house MakerBot. A 6-million-square-foot, 16-building complex on the Sunset Park waterfront, Industry City has gotten a few facelifts, totaling about $100 million, since then, and it's probably about to get another one. A big one.

Crain's reports that Jamestown, along with Belvedere Capital and Angelo Gordon, want to build a hotel within Industry City, as well as sink $1 billion into further improvements across the whole complex that will attract even more businesses to lease office space there.

REVEALED: Massive Mixed-Use Development at Red Hook’s Revere Sugar Factory Site



Quote:
The housing-design experts at Magnusson Architecture and Planning (MAP) have hashed out a feasibility study to redevelop the Revere Sugar Factory site in Red Hook with a 1.7 million-square-foot development to include more than 900 apartments, 250,000 square feet of retail, and 400,000 square feet of parking. The six-acre site at 280 Richards Street is owned by the Joesph Sitt-led, Thor Equities, who purchased the parcel back in 2005 to the tune of $40 million, according to the New York Observer.
