JDS and SHoP Architects Unveil Plan for 900-Foot Lower East Side Tower



Quote:
There’s a new tallest tower taking over the Lower East Side, and unsurprisingly it comes to us via the supertall super-team of JDS Development and SHoP Architects, the same duo responsible for the 1,438-foot-tall 111 West 57th Street and 9 DeKalb Avenue, Brooklyn’s first 1,000+ foot tower. Their latest record-setter is a 900-foot, 77-story rental building planned for 247 Cherry Street, reports The Lo-Down. It will rise directly next to Extell’s One Manhattan Square, which made waves for its 850-foot height in the low-scale Two Bridges area.

The newest tallest tower between Midtown and Downtown will have a 10,000-square-foot retail base with 600 rental apartments above, about 150 of which will be made permanently affordable. Though the design isn’t finalized, SHoP says it will likely be terracotta brick and glass and feature outdoor terraces in the middle. There will also be a top-floor amenity space for all residents, and SCAPE Landscape Architecture has been tapped to create a publicly accessible plaza surrounding the structure.

Transit Think Tank Says MSG Move Could Be a $5 Billion Example of ‘Architects Run Wild’



Quote:
Moving MSG to make room for a bigger, better Penn Station train hub would be really expensive and probably not a good idea, according to a new report by transit think tank Rudin Center for Transportation Policy. Commercial Observer reports that the just-released study outlines the concern that moving the arena would come with a price tag of over $5 billion, take, like, forever, and would generally “become an urban planner’s worst nightmare.” The study refers to the proposed overhaul of Pennsylvania Station and the idea of extending it to the post office off Eighth Avenue as well as suggestions by urban planners for relocating MSG.

In January, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced plans for a $3 billion rehabilitation and extension plan for Penn Station, including renaming it Empire State Station Complex. Amtrak trains would be moved into the James A. Farley Post Office off Eighth Avenue, leaving 60,000 square feet in Penn Station free for retail, restaurants and other uses. The plan also involves relocating the Theater at Madison Square Garden to enlarge the entrance into the rail hub and bring in more light.

Mitchell Moss, head of the Rudin Center, dismissed civic groups “pining for a new version of the old Penn Station,” telling Commercial Observer they’re “pursuing a dream that is unlikely to ever be fulfilled,” and calling proposals for a new train hub “another example of architects run wild.”

Voices in favor of a new Penn Station similar to the one that was demolished in the 1960s have been advocating the relocation of the current 1968 version of the stadium. In 2013, the New York City Council only renewed MSG’s special permit at the current site for 10 years in hopes it would be relocated. As 6sqft previously reported, The Alliance for a New Penn Station, a coalition of the Municipal Art Society and the Regional Plan Association have proposed that MSG take up residency in the Morgan Post Office and Annex which runs from West 28th to West 30th Streets from Ninth to 10th Avenues. Moss believes recreating the old Penn Station’s spacious waiting area isn’t especially necessary given that the new Penn Station is more of a “place of quick transfers between subway lines, the Long Island Railroad and NJ Transit” rather than a landing point like Grand Central Station.

So what would cost so much and take so long–other than the overruns that plague every civic project? The new report finds the “frenzied development” currently in progress on Manhattan’s West Side would complicate the project, suggesting that land prices involved would also be costly; the report estimates the cost of acquisition at between $750 million and $800 million. Demo and construction costs for building a new MSG at that site would be at a minimum of $1.6 billion in 2016 currency. The study estimates that it would cost about $65 million just to demolish the existing MSG, which just got a $1 billion update in 2013.

Building a new Penn Station while keeping LIRR, NJ Transit and Amtrak running would cost upwards of $2 billion. And development of a new train station on the current MSG site would mean the demolition of Vornado Realty Trust’s Two Penn Plaza next door; that comes with its own $600 million price tag. Buying that building doesn’t seem like an option given Vornado’s recent announcement of plans to create a 4.2-million-square-foot complex on the site. Vornado executives have supported the state’s plans for upgrading Penn Station.

425 Grand Concourse: NYC's Largest Residential Passive House Will Rise in Mott Haven
http://ny.curbed.com/2016/4/29/11540...ble-apartments



Quote:
A former public school in Mott Haven will soon be transformed into the city's largest residential passive house — and what's more, it will be fully affordable. The former P.S. 31 building at 425 Grand Concourse is set to be transformed into a 24-story building with 241 apartments for low and moderate-income families.

The project is not just restricted to housing. Plans also call for the creation of an 11,000 square foot supermarket on the ground floor, which will be located next to a cultural space and a social services facility. The floor above that will have a 44,480 square foot charter school.

In order to build such a large-scale project in the neighborhood, the developers will need to seek a zoning change, which in turn will activate the newly created Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) law. That means that 25 percent of the units in the building will be permanently affordable.

As part of the construction, the city will also rehabilitate and reopen the nearby Garrison Playground, which has fallen into disrepair over the years.

Future residents of the building will have access to amenities like laundry on each floor, a community room, and a landscaped roof terrace.

What makes the building environmentally conscious is the fact that it will have solar-shading devices, water saving features, and individual energy controls and energy efficient appliances in the apartments. When complete, the building will use 70 percent less energy than conventional buildings.

Well, I see there being two different channels for Penn improvements: 1) the immediate term stuff (Moynihan and the "Empire" complex, 2) the long, term relocation of the Garden.

They are not mutually exclusive. It's been obvious for some time that the latter doesn't ever need to actually happen...so long as other options remain on the table for improving platform-level access, and enhancing operations/service (which the long-term relocation of the MSG is ostensibly intended to do, rather than the improved passenger experience the former, short-term improvements are meant to address).

This has been so from the time the MAS first solicited designs for the re-imagining of the station to Cuomo's proposals.

Hudson Yards is only beginning to make its very powerful mark on the skyline (which is usually hard to do in NY but the scale and breadth of the project and its position on the island make it so). Also visible in the lower right is the beautiful new 10 Sullivan.

As seen from the top of the rising 3 WTC.

Citywide ferry service

Website Launches for New City-Wide Ferry

Quote:
The new city-wide ferry system is on schedule to launch in summer 2017, and ahead of that launch, the ferry service, which will be run by the San Francisco-based Hornblower, has launched their new website. Visitors can find out about the ferry, and, more importantly, enter to win a free annual pass. Winners will be announced when the service launches next summer. The site features updates, public meeting info, maps and schedules, and postings for more than 150 jobs that will be created by the new service.

Ferry rides will be $2.75–the same as a MetroCard swipe. Bikes are a dollar extra (there’s also a $20 bike pass). Monthly passes will be available, price TBA. The city says the service will be running an estimated 4.6 million trips a year by the end of 2018. You won’t be able to get free transfers to subways and buses (though you can get them between ferries). Though this is in the works (and the mayor would like to see it happen), the city will be phasing out MetroCards by 2020, making it less than ideal for the ferry service to invest in the current system.
