212 Fifth Avenue is pure geilon amazingness. Glad to see so much Neo Art Deco in NYC these days. The hefty fine character that really made Gotham continued.

This building will be the built epitome of Flavor Flav style.

Perkins+Will’s “Sleek” Manhattan Tower to Feature Five Open-Air Gardens

[IMG]http://i59.************/35javza.jpg[/IMG]

Conceptual plans of Perkins+Will’s East 37th Street Residential Tower in New York City have been unveiled. Debuted in Cannes, France, during MIPIM, where the high-rise received a “Future Projects Award,” the 700-foot-tall Manhattan tower boasts a “shimmering, angled curtain wall” organized by five clusters of shared amenities and open-air gardens.

More about the 65-story, 150,000-square-foot condominium tower, after the break.


“The idea is to create a new kind of communal ecosystem of social relationships within a thin tower design,” says Scott Allen, an associate architect and designer with Perkins+Will. “Rather than giving residents small, almost unusable balconies as seen in many towers, they will enjoy big community terraces that are the kind of social and interactive spaces in high demand today.”

“This adds a diverse urban landscape and various mixtures of city life to high-rise living, a dynamic and sustainable departure from typical condominium developments,” adds Robert Goodwin, FAIA, design director of Perkins+Will’s NYC office.

Easily accessible shared spaces range from event rooms and a “chef’s table” to private yoga studios, terraced gardens, fitness rooms, an outdoor cinema, observatory, rooftop pool and resident terrace.

[IMG]http://i59.************/ekjq1l.jpg[/IMG]

“The structure and organization of the tower are equally innovative. Aimed at a completely flexible and adaptable floor plate, the entire structural system is shifted to the exterior perimeter and arranged in a thin, 17-inch by 19-inch steel diagrid with a concrete core. This hybrid steel-and-concrete structure allows for flexibility in unit layout and reduces the overall thickness of the interior elevator core by about 50 percent,” says Goodwin. “It also eliminates the need for corner columns and allows a slender diagrid size of less than two feet, giving the developers a novel and dynamic yet highly economical response way to integrate the exterior glass curtain wall.”

Although the project is still in its design phase, completion is expected in late 2017.

Project: 10 Jay Street (Facade/Renovation)


==============================
http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2015/0...jay_street.php



Modified crystal design for Dumbo’s 10 Jay St. gets thumbs up from Landmarks

March 24, 2015
Tess Hofmann


A bold, sugar crystal-inspired design for a waterfront Dumbo residential conversion won approval today from the Landmarks Preservation Commission, after a slightly different vision for the project was rejected last month.

The former commercial building at 10 Jay Street will undergo a conversion to 46 high-end condo units, according to Joseph Stavrach, president and CEO of Triangle Assets, the owner of the property and a co-developer with Glacier Global Partners.

The new design, which incorporates brick elements along with the glass and steel facade, is meant to evoke the building’s history as a sugar refinery, along with the spirit of Dumbo as a manufacturing hub.

“[Landmarks] gave us very good ideas and we went back and we put the brick element into the facade,” Stavrach said. “We also put a lot of steel to show the stability of Dumbo, the big concrete and steel buildings that Dumbo is all about. Landmarks loved it.”

Amenities will include a pet spa, gym, roof deck, bicycle room, and private gardens for the penthouse unit.

Though Landmarks praised the beauty of ODA Architecture’s design last month, the commission ultimately decided it needed tweaks to be appropriate for the historic district.

Demolition on the building is expected to begin May 1 and the project is set to be completed by Fall 2016.

Some time ago I had the idea of splitting this thread into one about projects in Manhattan and one about projects outside of Manhattan. Obviously there are some downsides to it, like the possibility of users from other actively updated cities demanding the same be done for their threads, but I'd really love the many NYC projects in this section to be more conveniently organised. What do other SSC users think of this?

^ We don't do city districts here and I think we shouldn't. This section is supposed to give convenient overviews of a whole metropolis / urban area. It'd really become cluttered if we start district threads (by which size would we start? which kind of cities? etc.).
In addition, while NYC gets regularily updated this thread is not exactly flooded and it's easy to keep track.

If you're interested in specific development areas exclusively, there's the NYC forum with single threads on Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island etc. Though I think the NYC forum could need a proper restructuring process (like an urban talk subforum, a completed projects archive and a gallery subforum).

Fifty Feet and Climbing!


March 25, 2015
by S. Shaw

Quote:
The Hills continue to rise on Governors Island! As you know, three of our four hills, (Grassy, Slide and Discovery) are already at their rough grade (aka their approximate height before adding soil for planting grass, trees and other vegetation). Each will offer a different experience to park goers. Grassy Hill will provide unobstructed views of the new park and a gentle grassy slope, perfect for watching baseball games below. Slide Hill will have a fun, family friendly play-space with climbing structures and slides of differing heights embedded into the landscape. Discovery Hill will offer a leisurely path through nature and incorporate public art by the artist Rachel Whiteread into the landscape.

Finally Outlook Hill, the tallest of the four hills, is still under major construction. We hit the 50 foot height mark last week, but still have a ways to go! When Outlook is complete it will tower 70 feet over the promenade, providing unmatched views of Lower Manhattan and the New York Harbor.

1,500-Foot One Vanderbilt Approved By City Planning



Quote:
Grand Central's supertall neighbor moved one step closer to reality today, as City Planning unanimously approved SL Green's plans for the 1,500-foot-tall One Vanderbilt and a rezoning of the Vanderbilt Avenue corridor. Along with the tower, which will hold 1.6 million square feet of office space, SL Green will create a public plaza and make $210 million worth of transit and infrastructure improvements to Grand Central. City Planning Chairman Carl Weisbrod called the Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed tower a "a significant addition to the East Midtown business district and to our skyline," saying that it will "further the City's goal of keeping East Midtown one of the best business addresses in the world." TD Bank already signed on as the anchor tenant.

Up next: a City Council hearing in mid-April with the final vote in May.
