I support this move, but I wonder how this might affect sales or even construction of some luxury buildings in the city.

U.S. Will Track Secret Buyers of Luxury Real Estate

Quote:
Concerned about illicit money flowing into luxury real estate, the Treasury Department said Wednesday that it would begin identifying and tracking secret buyers of high-end properties.

The initiative will start in two of the nation’s major destinations for global wealth: Manhattan and Miami-Dade County. It will shine a light on the darkest corner of the real estate market: all-cash purchases made by shell companies that often shield purchasers’ identities.

It is the first time the federal government has required real estate companies to disclose names behind all-cash transactions, and it is likely to send shudders through the real estate industry, which has benefited enormously in recent years from a building boom increasingly dependent on wealthy, secretive buyers.

The initiative is part of a broader federal effort to increase the focus on money laundering in real estate.

World Reaches 100 Supertall Skyscrapers With Completion of 432 Park Avenue



Quote:
As of December 23, when the slender 1,396-foot-tall 432 Park Avenue condominium tower was officially pronounced complete by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) as the building was “partially habitable,” it became the world’s 100th supertall skyscraper (h/t TRD), categorized as those at least 984 feet in height. In addition to being the world’s tallest all-residential building, 432 Park Avenue is also the world’s 14th-tallest building overall and the city’s seventh supertall skyscraper. In fact, New York has the second-highest number of supertalls on the planet.

It took 80 years to put the first 50 supertalls on the map, but the second 50 sprung up in a mere five years. CTBUH notes that though many of the new towers have risen in Asia and the Middle East, New York “has remained an active center for supertall construction in the Americas.” Dubai, however, has the most, with 18. Saudi Arabia will have the world’s tallest building when the Jeddah Tower is completed in 2018. It will be a whopping 700 feet taller than 432 Park.

Exciting times. I suspect new technologies and materials will allow us to build even thinner and taller buildings in the near future. I wonder how many 1000+ meter towers there will be around 2100.

There's always been plenty of nice neighborhoods in the borough and I honestly don't understand why the Bronx is still being associated with high crime rates and lack of opportunities. IMO anything between the Cross Bronx Expressway and Gun Hill Road is quite nice and doesn't need gentrification. Add Riverdale and Woodlaw Heights and you can see that the most of Bronx is actually a really nice place to live.

If that's true, then why do a reclad of 375 Pearl Street at all?

I do not believe in doing this halfway, so they should have either done a full reclad of the 375 Pearl tower, or leave the 375 Pearl tower's facade as it originally was. They could have left its existing facade unaltered if they're so worried about temperatures and security.

Another reason why a full reclad of 375 Pearl is unlikely: The datacenters within the tower can't be moved to a differrent location within Manhattan, and buildings housing datacenters will never have good-looking exterior facades.

Brooklyn is developing into a world class skyline. Jersey City is on its way there. Queens is starting in that direction. And there are development plans for Newark. This is just crazy to imagine. Theoretically in 2030 or so there could be a point where you can see six skylines at once.

There are 100 supertalls in NYC? I would have thought there was about 20.

Met Museum Will Add 180,000 Square Feet During Renovation



Quote:
The iconic Metropolitan Museum of Art is poised to get a lot bigger. Last spring, the museum revealed plans for a new David Chipperfield-designed addition for the museum's modern and contemporary art collections; now, new details on that renovation have surfaced in the New York Post.

Per the paper, Chipperfield's revamp will add 180,000 square feet to the institution, including a new rooftop terrace. But despite its massive size, the addition will be "no higher than the existing buildings," according to developer Daniel Brodsky. A Met spokesperson confirmed that to the Post, saying that "the footprint of the project in Central Park will be no larger than the current footprint," and that it's still too early in the design process to comment further on the addition.

One Wall Street Conversion Gets Landmarks Approval



Quote:
The residential conversion of the Art Deco landmark building, One Wall Street, has finally received a stamp of approval. The city's Landmarks Preservation Commission approved its conversion into 524 apartments with two retail outlets on the ground floor, YIMBY reports.

The previous owners of the building, Bank of New York Mellon, sold it to Harry Macklowe of Macklowe Properties for $585 million in 2014. Now, Robert A.M. Stern and SLCE Architects are collaborating on the new project.

Some of the changes this conversion will bring include the following:

An annex on the south side of the property will have several floors added to it. This will be done by removing some of the floors in the main building, which will in turn add more square footage allowance to annex area while also increasing the height of the floors in the main building. This annex will also be connected to the main building. Developers plan to build a winter garden on top of this connector.

The main entrance to the building, which is currently through the annex will be moved to a historic, but currently sealed off entrance on Broadway. One of the retail space will be to the right of this entrance. Developers speculate that it will be a Whole Foods type store. The other retail venue, which will be in the vein of a Cartier store, will have its entrance on Wall Street.

The iconic Red Room will be preserved, but the fate of the four-story observation room is as yet unclear. In the meantime, check out our tour inside the space from 2014, just after Macklowe purchased the property, to get a peek at these gorgeous Art Deco spaces.

It's Official: WTC Oculus Will Open the First Week in March



Quote:
Sure, the news was all but confirmed, but today the Port Authority made it official: The transit org announced that the World Trade Center Transportation Hub—anchored by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava's Oculus—will officially open in "the first week of March," per a press release.

In a statement, Port Authority chairman John Degan said, "When the Oculus opens, commuters, visitors and residents of Lower Manhattan will have a greatly enhanced commute to and from the site for the first time." What that actually means for commuters: There will finally be a link between the World Trade Center PATH station and 11 NYC subway lines, along with the East River ferries. The various stations will be linked via underground passageways, which will also connect to the mall beneath the Oculus, which are scheduled to open "in phases" this year, per the Port Authority.
