Is that beige tower new or is it something out of the 1980s postmodern school of pseudo art-deco? I can't tell. Is it getting a renovation or is it new build? If it's new, it's crap.

The one on the right, 30 park place, is brand new.

Wow, that's a rather unpopular opinion around these parts. But, I have to admit that the light of this picture makes it look very 1980s. You should check this thread for some more accurate shots.

They could change Woolworth┤s turrets to look more like the original ones from 1913, since the "restoration" of them decades ago make them look fake.

Nice to see the Woolworth building being spruced up, and new pinnacles poping up over New York (even if some do seem alarming thin to me) to move away from the plateau skyline of the past few decades. Its a shame buildings like the Woolworth dont open up their lobby's more to tourists (though understandably not), as i chanced my luck and had a look and was impressed by how beautiful they were, and are true icons of New York. While 30 park place is not nearly as good as heritage buildigns, it is much better thana glass box and fits the area reasonably well IMO.

Agreed about 30 Park Place. It clearly ain't a marvel of Neo-Art-Deco full of splendour, but it's a respectful and greatly fitting 'gothamesque' setbacked skyscraper, that will prove to be a worthy neighbour to Woolworth Bldg. Newer towers in new classical and retro-modern styles should include more details imho, but I really like the crown of this tower.


Btw, this picture shows how 432 Park Ave could benefit from some sort of 'spire'

The Department of Buildings just approved work permits for the 163-foot-tall development between 35th Avenue and Northern Boulevard. Flushing-based W&L Group, headed by Thomas Wang, has already begun demolishing six homes to make way for the sizable tower. The latest permits detail plans for 57 apartments, stacked on top of an 11,800-square-foot school.

Planned 1,100-Foot, 86-Story Tower Will Rise at 45 Broad St.



Quote:
The last time we checked in with the vacant lot at 45 Broad Street, it had been sold to Robert Gladstone's Madison Equities and Italy-based Pizzarotti Group for a cool $86 million, with plans to develop a residential tower in place. 6sqft recently uncovered what appear to be preliminary renderings of the tower that will rise on the site, but Pizzarotti CEO Rance MacFarland recently confirmed more details about the building to Curbed—namely, that it will be a 1,100-foot-tall, 86-story tower, putting it among the ranks of New York City's supertalls.

As previously reported, CetraRuddy (of One Madison and Walker Tower fame) is behind the building's design, which is still being finalized. The firms expect to break ground on the project in late October or November of this year, with an anticipated completion date of 2018.

In terms of the building itself, it's expected to have 245 residences that will cater to "entry- and mid-level buyers," according to MacFarland.

"entry to mid level [luxury]" buyers? Or just normal entry/mid-level buyers?

EDIT: Quote from Curbed: "The renderings pictured here are, of course, simply being used for marketing, so there's a very real chance that a tower wouldn't actually materialize."

Macy's Could Add Towers to Historic Herald Square Flagship



Quote:
Because nothing is sacred, Macy's Herald Square might sprout a tower (or two), the Post has learned. The news comes days after Bloomberg reported that the retailer is selling stakes in its flagships, including the iconic 34th Street store. The retailer recently partnered up with Eastdil Secured to explore how it could maximize the value of its primo real estate holdings in New York City, so the "tower" revelation isn't entirely surprising, but it is far fetched. In order to build a tower atop the Herald Square store, the property will have to be rezoned. The massive department store, which takes up nearly the whole block between Broadway and Seventh Avenue and 34th and 35th streets, is "overbuilt" by zoning standards. The store, which opened on the site in 1902, occupies 2.1 million square feet. By 1960's zoning guidelines, the site's maximum buildable square footage taps out at about 1.4 million. The towers could be used for offices or hotel rooms. Adding to the far-fetchedness is that the structure's a National Historic Landmark.

$1B Expansion Planned for the Javits Center



Quote:
It seems like Governor Cuomo’s had enough of ugly Manhattan buildings. Fresh off his announcement of a $3 billion overhaul of Penn Station comes another major redevelopment plan–a $1 billion expansion of the Jacob K. Javits Center, already the nation’s largest meeting place. First reported by Curbed, the project will increase the building by 1.2 million square feet, adding five times the current meeting space and bringing the total square footage to a massive 3.3 million. Renderings from FXFOWLE show a glassy structure that will house a 58,000-square-foot ballroom (Cuomo says it will be the largest in the northeast), 22,000 square feet of outdoor event space, and a four-level truck garage that will supposedly get 20,000 vehicles off the streets.

it seems that the Javits Center will continue to be a gap in the new west side skyline for many years to come...
