I'm sorry to say that today's massive update has been canceled due my shoe needing to be replaced... The Air Quality is supposed to be poor which is not good for my Health and makes for bad photos... The Brown Smog looks horrible in the photos... Its supposed be 89-95F today....which is boiling.... Hopefully I will do the update on Tuesday...with my new shoes and on a much cooler day...

Soho Project Gets Financing
http://www.wsj.com/articles/soho-pro...ing-1464224244



Quote:
A joint venture of Madison Capital and Vornado Realty Trust is moving ahead on the construction of a six-story mixed-use building in SoHo after buying a parking lot and obtaining financing for the project, according to a Madison executive.

The companies closed on the $25.8 million purchase of the site from the New York City Economic Development Corp. on Friday. The deal capped a several-year process during which Madison emerged as the winning bidder and received approvals to develop 606 Broadway.
...
The glass building will have about 11,500 square feet of retail space on the first and second floors with 22,751 square feet of high-end office space on floors three to six. In addition, the building will have an outdoor terrace. The developers hope to complete the building by mid-2018.
It'll be right next to this guy.

Solow pays $128M for Billionaires’ Row site he once fought with Barnett over
http://therealdeal.com/2016/05/25/so...-barnett-over/



Quote:
Back in 2011, Sheldon Solow lost a bidding war over 16 West 57th Street to Gary Barnett’s Extell Development, blocking his plans to build a luxury tower on the site and three adjacent parcels. Five years and one lawsuit later, Solow finally has his prized property.

The famously litigious developer bought the five-story, 24,000-square-foot office and retail building from Brazilian real estate firm JHSF for $128 million, according to property records filed with the city Wednesday.

Solow’s namesake company already owned the two parcels to the building’s left and right – 10 and 20 West 57th Street – and a site to its immediate south, 19 West 56th Street. He now controls an assemblage with enough air rights to build a tower with 213,000 square feet of residential space, according to Reonomy. Solow also owns the 1.38 million-square-foot office building 9 West 57th Street across the street.

Extell bought 16 West 57th Street for $80 million in 2011, a move some saw as designed to block Solow from building a luxury condo tower that could rival Extell’s One57. In a 2013 lawsuit, Extell accused Solow of obstructing its plans to build a tower on the lot by denying its workers entry to neighboring 10 and 20 West 57th Street and 19 West 56th Street.

Extell sold the building to Brazilian development firm JHSF in September 2014 for $95 million. JHSF announced plans to build a Raphael-Vinoly designed luxury hotel on the site, but the plans apparently never got off the ground. Instead the firm got tangled up in a lawsuit from brokerage Endeavour Global Group Realty, which in June 2015 claimed it was owed $5.7 million in commission fees over the buy.

Solow could not be reached for comment.

That is directly across from the Solow Building, so it would have to be at least 725 feet for the penthouse to have Central Park views over the 689 foot Solow. I predict a tall, skinny building.

the Court Square Boom: Long Island City's skyline is quickly emerging. Though One Court Square (673') is still the tallest, it is followed closely by Tower 28 [42-12 28th st] (647') and then by 'The Hayden' [43-25 Hunter St] (509')

In the future the order will be Cityview Tower (984'), Queens Plaza Park (915'), 43-30 24th Street (700')

currently in progress are Tishman Speyer's Residential Complex [Jackson Ave and Orchard St] (590'), the Eagle Loft [43-22 Queens Street] (580') and 5Pointz (498')

LaGuardia's $4B Revamp Will Kick Off This Summer
http://ny.curbed.com/2016/6/1/118334...rt-summer-2016

Quote:
The $4 billion renovation of LaGuardia Aiport will get underway this summer after the public-private partnership deal for the project was finalized on Wednesday, Crain's reports. The project is a collaboration between the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and LaGuardia Gateway Partners. The latter group comprises of airport operator, Vantage Airport Group, investment company, Meridiam, and construction firm, Skanska.

Accompanying this announcement are several new renderings for the project as well.

LaGuardia Gateway will begin work this summer with the demolition of a parking garage in front of the existing terminal building. This will be the location of the new, 1.3 million square foot terminal, which will be created with an innovative bridges-and-islands design to allow for better airline circulation, more flexibility for passengers to reach gates, and reduce delays.

Already, $2.5 billion have been raised for the construction. Of the total funds, the consortium of developers will provide $1.8 billion, and the Port Authority will contribute $2.2 billion. LaGuardia Gateway will receive a part of the revenue generated at the new terminal from tenants and airline fees, and in turn will be responsible for overseeing the construction and ensuring that it is completed on time.

I highly recommend the New York Times Magazine issue on New York City's new skyscrapers:

JFK is fine, just needs better access via public transportation, and maybe a new runway. La Guardia needs the renovation more urgently.

Brooklyn Office-Building Boom Expands on Red Hook’s Waterfront
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articl...k-s-waterfront



Quote:
A new entrant has joined the competition to build offices in New York’s Brooklyn, where developers are clamoring to attract technology-industry tenants seeking trendy spaces.
Joseph Sitt’s Thor Equities is planning a four-story complex on the waterfront in Red Hook, with more than 600,000 square feet (55,700 square meters) of offices and 23,000 square feet of retail and restaurants. It’s designed by Norman Foster’s Foster + Partners, the architects of London’s Gherkin tower.
....
Construction of the Red Hook building will start this summer, whether or not any tenants are signed, said Joshua Greenwald, a spokesman for Thor. He said the company wasn’t ready to estimate what the project will cost.

I think people complain about JFK simply because as a non-American you sometimes need to stand in line for 2-3 hrs in order to get cleared by customs/immigration.

New Zaha Hadid Building coming to 220 11th Ave.

Condo/Cultural Building Designed by the Late Zaha Hadid Will Rise in West Chelsea
http://www.6sqft.com/condocultural-b...-west-chelsea/

Quote:
A press release from The Moinian Group reveals that more than a year ago they worked with Hadid and her team to explore possibilities for 220 Eleventh Avenue, one of her final creations. The developer announced that the new building will be “a collection of signature loft-like condominium residences, a collection of penthouses and a cultural institution to establish itself as the hub of the world renowned art district that is West Chelsea.”

The Moinian Group purchased the site of 220 Eleventh Avenue in 2002 for an undisclosed sum, and closed on a $361 bond in May 2015 from which it received funds. Though no rendering was put out, the press release hints that Hadid has “translated Manhattan’s powerful geometries and rhythms… integrating the city’s unyielding spirit and distinctive vernacular with the finely-detailed craftsmanship of her acclaimed jewelry collaborations.”

Mitchell Moinian said, “We are deeply honored to develop one of Zaha’s final creations and cement her astonishing legacy forevermore here in Manhattan. She was a special woman and a friend who we all miss very much.” Construction on 220 Eleventh Avenue is expected to begin in early 2017 with condo sales launching in the second half of the year.

Per Crain's today, it seems we can expect another addition to Billionaires' Row, this time rising above the landmarked Lee's Art Shop at 220 W. 57th!

Quote:


The once stately and sedate stretch of West 57th Street best known for Carnegie Hall, the Art Students League and luxury shops such as Tiffany & Co. and Bergdorf Goodman, has been reborn as Billionaires’ Row, home to the tallest and most expensive apartment towers in New York. Last month, the Steinberg family agreed to sell Lee’s Art Shop’s four-story home at 220 W. 57th St. to a pair of developers, adding another pricey project to a street that remains in play.

Thor Equities, the Manhattan commercial real estate development firm led by Joe Sitt, and General Growth Properties, a Chicago-based shopping mall owner, have agreed to close this month on the $85 million purchase of the landmarked Lee’s building. The partners have not yet announced their plans for the 8,400-square-foot lot, which could support as much as 126,000 square feet of development above the landmarked exterior.

...

Some of the older office buildings in the area surrounding 220 W. 57th St. have recently been sold. No plans have yet been filed for them to join the construction rush. Investors instead appear to be holding—perhaps anticipating the increase in value they may see from their proximity to a luxury condo tower.
I have a feeling it'll be a little while until they announce any formal plans, as this may have to wait until the next market upswing. Here's hoping that Thor and GGP tap SHoP for this -- they've proven their mettle at incorporating beautiful landmarked buildings into their remarkable new towers.

RAMSA is the best choice. Apart from 111 West 57th Street and 340 Flatbush Avenue Extention, the former of which I assume you're talking about, I find most SHoP's work repulsive.

In a perfect world, La Guardia would be closed with flights redirected to JFK and Newark, many of which rendered obsolete by high-speed rail.

Great to finally see more classical buildings (or at least their facades) protected and extended instead of torn down.
And RAMSA is a perfect choice, they'll do it carefully and with sensibility!

Looks like NY developers are finally eager to learn.
