Reason why most new buildings have built in HVAC systems to mitigate their effect on design.

456 Greenwich Street

100-Room Hotel to Rise on Tribeca Site Eyed for Restaurant



Quote:
A block-through development site on Greenwich Street along Debrosses Street won't be getting a Gene Kaufman-designed restaurant after all, but a high-end hotel. Commercial Observer reports that Western Heritable Investment Company, Caspi Development and Barone Management are planning an eight-story hotel with 90 to 100 guest rooms for the site, which takes the address of 456 Greenwich Street. The lot—currently occupied in part by a single-story garage—straddles the boundary of the Tribeca North Historic District and as such, the developers have decided to seek Landmarks approval for the building's design. The project architect has not been named, although its rendering is accredited to architect Stephen B. Jacobs Group.
There is a Request For Proposals out for the hotel brand. When complete, the 93,900-square-foot hotel will have a bar, an interior courtyard, a spa, a pool, a business center, and a screening room. The hotel also might have a private members club.

Any more details on this? I wonder what materials they'll use for the cladding. That pink part kind of looks like bricks, hope it really is bricks and not some crappy imitation.

New Port Authority Bus Terminal would cost $8 to $10 billion



Beyond spending $90 million on short-term repairs involving passenger comfort and convenience at the aging Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan, seen here, officials are planning an entirely new structure to address bus parking, circulation and other long-term issues.

NEW YORK — If you think the $3.9 billion World Trade Center transportation hub sounds pricey, you ain't seen nothin' yet.

Officials of the Port Authority of New York and New say replacing the aging and overcrowded Port Authority Bus Terminal in midtown Manhattan will cost an estimated $8 to $10 billion. Officials disclosed the cost estimate for the first time today, in advance of a staff presentation to Port Authority commissioners scheduled for Thursday's monthly meeting in Jersey City.

The figure is ten times the amount commissioners were using during discussions of a new terminal last summer, based in part on a previous cost estimate of $800 million for a new terminal that had been included in the agency's previous capital plan.

The agency's chairman, John Degnan, who began his tenure last year by riding a bus into the old terminal, acknowledged that "most commissioners, including me, thought it would be less."

Degnan pointed out that the new figures were a "gross" estimate that did not include potential revenues from, for example, the sale of air rights to a developer for building above the new terminal. He also said the board could seek outside estimates, and vowed that he and other commissioners would work on minimizing costs.

Sell $3B in real estate to fund new Hudson River rail tunnel, top Dem tells Port Authority


By Larry Higgs | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

on March 17, 2015 at 1:45 PM, updated March 17, 2015 at 5:22 PM

NEWARK -- State senate president Steve Sweeney called on the Port Authority to sell at least $3 billion in real estate to help fund construction of a new Hudson River rail tunnel.

Sweeney, who made the public call at a Newark Penn Station press conference today, said he spoke to Port Authority chairman John Degnan about the idea.

"He recognized the need," Sweeney said. "We need to send a message to Amtrak and the federal government we're willing to work to come up with a funding component."

Sweeney was flanked by leading Democratic lawmakers and transportation experts who all called on the Port Authority to sell real estate to help fund Amtrak's Gateway Tunnel project. Sweeney and other speakers stressed the need for new tunnels after Amtrak revealed the old tunnels were damaged by flooding from Hurricane Sandy and would have to be shut down, one at a time for one year for repairs.

"This proposal is seed money," said State Senator Paul Sarlo, chairman of the senate transportation committee. "By divesting real estate, it provides the seed money for Gateway."

Sweeney said he did not have specific Port Authority properties in mind to be sold, but he identified the 1 World Trade Center building in a press release. Sarlo said he would look to Port Authority commissioners to identify property to sell.

But Port Authority Commissioner Ken Lipper said the bi-state agency had a more pressing need for any funds raised through the sale of its assets, including the World Trade Center.

I believe part of the plan is to buy out some of the surrounding properties and build a new terminal there.

Quote:
In January, a joint endeavor between Madison Equities, Building and Land Technology (BLT) and Thor Equities received a $275 million construction loan to acquire and complete the gut renovation of 212 Fifth Avenue. The partners gained the financial support from Midtown-based iStar Financial, allowing them to close on the purchase of the 220,000 square foot office property from Extell Development for $260 million.
[...]
The trio plans to convert the flagship property into 42 luxury apartments, with ground-level retail. Helpern Architects plans to replace all the building's windows and perform a full rehabilitation of the brick, limestone, and terra cotta facade.

Last week, the design team from AJSNY debuted renderings of the stunningly whimsical rooftop addition to be placed atop 212 Fifth Avenue in Nomad. The renderings show a bronze-clad, multi-story addition wrapped with meandering ribbons framing an enormous south-facing clock. 6sqft notes, “Below the steampunk-esque penthouse, AJSNY depicts a standard condo-conversion affair of open layouts and double-height spaces for the 1913 neo-medieval tower.” Although the renderings are not official, it gives New Yorkers an idea of what the trio – Madison Equities, Thor Equities, and Building and Land Technology – has in store for this exemplary Manhattan address.

Meet One of New York’s Last Affordable Market-Rate Developers
BY: STEPHEN SMITH ON MARCH 20TH 2015 AT 5:00 PM

In New York City, as everyone knows, there are mostly two kinds of new construction: luxury market-rate development, and subsidized “affordable housing.”

But near the end of the 2 train in the Bronx, on the corner of East 216th Street, developer Mark Stagg’s Stagg Group has started work on 3677 White Plains Road, a new apartment building that will be neither luxury nor fully subsidized. The apartments will be one- and two-bedrooms, and the latter are expected to rent starting around $1,700 on the open market (like his other projects nearby), and less for the 20 percent that are subsidized by cheaper financing on top of the 421-a tax abatement that all new apartment buildings in the Bronx get.

“Our model is that we provide market-rate apartments for working-class people,” said Stagg. “The nurses, nurses’ aides, firemen, policemen making $40,000 to $80,000. Those people need a place to live.”
http://newyorkyimby.com/2015/03/meet...evelopers.html

This is the type of New Development that the city needs especially in the Bronx, Queens, Outer Brooklyn and Staten Island.
