The biggest drivers of the growth of the worldwide number of supertalls have all stalled, these days there are more proposals in NYC coming than in the rest of the world combined.

I think of the five most recent threads in proposed supertalls, three were from NYC. I dunno if there'll be another boom in Asia any time soon, looks like NYC will be dominating the supertall news for a while.

I don't think my predictions are too unrealistic, since there are 115 supertalls in the construction forum at the moment, and like the article mentioned there are already 100 completed ones. Also on the first five pages in the proposed sections I count 80 Prep supertalls.

First Look at Extell's 57-Story Tower For Downtown Brooklyn



Quote:
On Wednesday night, Extell revealed its 57-story, 692-foot City Point tower to Brooklyn Community Board 2 (h/t Brooklyn Paper). When the tower was first announced, it was poised to become the tallest in the borough. But that's all changed now that JDS has come along with plans for a development that's nearly twice its height. Extell's tower is still in the approvals process, so the renderings may not reflect its final design. A rep for Extell says the company is still deciding whether the building's 500 apartments will be rentals or condos, but they're leaning towards the latter.

The white tower will have its own built-in exterior cleaning device—a feature that Extell has come to include in more and more of its developments. Construction on the tower is poised to begin in 2017 and wrap up in 2019.

Plans Filed For Controversial Brooklyn Heights Library Tower



Quote:
It looks as if the redevelopment of the Brooklyn Heights branch of the Brooklyn Public Library is going to move forward quickly, now that the project has gotten City Council approval. YIMBY reports that the developer behind the controversial project, Hudson Companies, has filed plans with the city for the 36-story tower, which will have residences and amenity spaces, along with a new library.

The plans filed confirm much of what we already knew about the controversial development—it'll rise 36 stories, it'll be designed by Marvel Architects, and it'll have a brand-new library at its base—while also revealing a few new things. For one, the building will have 276,662 square feet of residential space, along with approximately 17,000 square feet for the new library (which will include meeting space and reading rooms). Update: As a commenter astutely points out, this is smaller than we'd last reported—the City Council approved a library space that measured 26,620 square feet.

[]Condos will make up much of the 409-foot tower.[/b]

ODA New York's Cantilevered LES Condos Are Halfway There



Quote:
When complete, the ODA New York-designed condo at 100 Norfolk Street will have 38 units over 12 floors. As of now, the building halfway there, thanks to a photo posted by Bowery Boogie. A completion date hasn't been reported yet, but according to Bowery Boogie, construction stalled due to a partial collapse of the structure.

Work has, however, obviously resumed, with a construction crane assembled and metal bracing attached to the building's neighbor.

Could be a sizable development.
===================

Project: Botanical Garden Development (Bronx)



Quote:
The site of the proposed development is an acre-plus parcel on the southeast corner of Webster Avenue and Bedford Park Boulevard that is owned by the Botanical Garden. The property, which is across Bedford Park Boulevard from the Garden’s parking garage, is one block from the Garden’s 250-acre grounds. The Garden’s request for proposals (RFP) envisions a development that could include a hotel with a minimum of 125 rooms on the northerly portion of the site. The residential component, on the southerly portion of the site, could consist of approximately 300 apartments, with a mix of market-rate and affordable units. The development could also include 12,000 square feet or more of retail use.

The proposed development is less than a block from the Botanical Garden station on MetroNorth’s Harlem Line, which provides access to Grand Central Terminal and Midtown Manhattan in about 20 minutes. It is also a short walk from stops on the B, D, and 4 subway lines, and several New York City Transit bus lines serve the area.

Amtrak Estimates Penn Station and Hudson River Tunnel Projects Will Cost $24 Billion



Quote:
When Governor Cuomo announced his $3 billion revamp of Penn Station earlier this month, skeptics were quick to point out that all the glassy new structures and reconfiguration of waiting rooms won’t do anything to help the fact that the Hudson River rail tunnels are crumbling. Clearly on the same page, Amtrak announced yesterday a detailed overview of the entire infrastructure project, and it comes in at a whopping $23.9 billion.

According to the Times, “the largest share of about $7.7 billion [will go towards] building the new Hudson tunnel and repairing the existing tunnel. The project includes a host of other elements, including expanding Pennsylvania Station in Manhattan at an estimated cost of $5.9 billion, and replacing rail bridges in New Jersey.”

Known as the Gateway Program, the project includes many improvements in New Jersey, such as a new circulation plan at Penn Station Newark, repairs of several bridges, and an expansion at Secaucus Junction. The most major components are the expansion of New York Penn Station and the Hudson Tunnel Project, which will bring a new two-track tunnel into the station and rebuild the existing, century-old tunnel. The old tubes, built in 1910, couldn’t handle current ridership (which has grown by 155 percent since 1990) even if they were in pristine condition, but since flooding during Hurricane Sandy they’re being eaten away by saltwater residue. Though no start date was given for the project, Amtrak says it will take a decade. They provided a more concrete timeline for adding additional tracks to the south of Penn Station, predicting work could start in 2024 and wrap up in 2030.

we could do that...or we could:
Build two new tunnels
Repair the existing ones
add two additional tracks between NYP and NWP
Replace the Portal & Sawtooth Bridges
Add a Secaucus Loop
Make various station and track improvements (including Penn South)


In any case, we don't know the cost of the program until the scoping is complete (or at least, further along).

They should honestly just lead with $7-8 billion for the tunnels, because people's eye's glaze over and heads explode when they hear $20 billion +

SIZA MATTERS
First look at Pritzker Prize winner Alvaro Siza's 400-foot Midtown tower.

http://archpaper.com/news/articles.a...3#.VqeTWpqLTIV

The Architect’s Newspaper has a first look at Pritzker Prize–winning Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza’s first United States project, a 34-story, 400-foot ultra-luxury residential tower in Midtown Manhattan.


COURTESY NOE & ASSOCIATES AND THE BOUNDARY

New York–based luxury real-estate development firms Sumaida + Khurana and LENY commissioned Siza to build 611 West 56th Street in Hell’s Kitchen. The tower will have 80 units and will feature a landscaped roof garden, a sun deck, and several private terraces. It will also feature amenities such as a private swimming pool, state-of-the-art spa and fitness center, children’s playroom, screening room, and an entertainment space.

“Álvaro Siza is one of the world’s most celebrated architects. We are honored to be working with Siza on his first building in the United States and believe that this project will capture the elegance and profound subtlety that is at the heart of his work. His sensitivity and collaborative mentality is teaching us as much about humanity as architecture,” Amit Khurana, founding partner at Sumaida + Khurana, said.

The building will be a new project type for the architect, as he has built only one other similarly tall tower, the 519-foot-tall New Orleans tower in Rotterdam, Netherlands. This new tower, however, is more subtle and refined, akin to Siza’s early structures like the Boa Nova Tea House and Piscinas de Marés in Portugal. The design for 611 West 56th Street features a subdued crown that tops an elegant gridded base.

The tower will be the second project in Sumaida + Khurana’s portfolio of seminal buildings built by renowned architects with a particular attention to detail and craft. The other was 152 Elizabeth Street, the first New York building by Japanese architect Tadao Ando.

Michael Gabellini and Kimberly Sheppard will work with Siza to design the building’s interiors. New York–based SLCE Architects will serve as the architect of record. Construction will begin summer 2016, and the building is expected to be complete in 2019.

Developer, SCA Reach Deal At Planned Mixed-Use Development At 42 Trinity Place, Financial District



Early last year, YIMBY brought you conceptual renderings of the possible supertall mixed-use tower that could rise at 42 Trinity Place, in the Financial District. Now the developer, Trinity Place Holdings, reached a deal with the city’s School Construction Authority (SCA) to build an elementary school in the base of the building, Tribeca Trib reports. The public school will boast 476 seats and a design is expected to be released of it this upcoming summer. In 2013, the city put forth $27.5 million in its budget to build a new school in the Financial District. The scope of the entire project has yet to be revealed, but it could potentially measure upwards of one million square feet and have retail, hotel, and residential components.

Could This Modern Residential Tower Replace the Historic Barney’s Building at 115 Seventh Avenue?



Quote:
Bargain hunters were distraught when Loehmann’s shuttered their NYC locations two years ago. It perhaps hit hardest at their Chelsea location, at the northeast corner of 16th Street and Seventh Avenue. Later that year it was announced that upscale retailer Barney’s would be opening a five-level store in the space, which also happens to be the site where they were founded in 1923, and remained until 2007. Next door, at the southeast corner of Seventh Avenue and 16th Street, also once part of Barney’s downtown flagship, 6sqft has uncovered a rendering showing a modern residential tower with a retail base that may replace the historic Romanesque-style building.

They should retain the (older) facade and build behind it.

I agree. The city should give generous FAR bonuses for developments that preserve the architectural heritage.
