Per Crain's today, the City has released their proposal for the Midtown East Rezoning!

Quote:
The city quietly published on Monday its plan to allow bigger and more modern office towers in midtown east—the first step in the formal rezoning of the neighborhood.

The long-awaited midtown east proposal would allow the tallest buildings to be erected right next to Grand Central Terminal, increasing the current permitted maximum density by about 30%.

"This would be the highest as-of-right density allowance in the east midtown subdistrict, reflecting the [city's] planning policy of focusing density in areas with excellent access to transit," wrote the Department of City Planning in documents posted on its website.

Though the rezoning has been a major focus of developers and planners for years, becoming at one point a priority of the Bloomberg administration, the planning department did not publicize the publication of its latest planning documents. It was unclear why that was the case, considering a rezoning would be worth billions of dollars in construction and real estate spending as developers knock down small buildings to erect soaring glass and steel office towers.

Buildings along Park Avenue and near subway stations farther north in the district, which encompasses the area bounded by East 39th and East 57th streets to the north and south, and Madison Avenue and Third Avenue to the east and west, would also receive a significant boost, while properties located on streets farther from transit would have smaller maximum densities.

The proposal would allow owners of landmarked buildings in the district to sell air rights across the district, rather than just adjacent to their properties, as currently allowed. Building owners who wish to achieve the maximum allowable densities would need to contribute financially to improving the area's transit infrastructure or purchase air rights from landmarked properties in the area.

Over the coming decades, the city predicts the rezoning would result in the creation of 16 new towers, which translates into an additional 6.6 million square feet of office space with 26,507 workers. Currently midtown east consists of 70 million square feet of office space, less than 5% was built within the past two decades.

The planning documents, called a draft scope of work, are the first step in formally recasting the neighborhood. A public meeting to review the documents, which will then be used to study the potential effects of the rezoning on the surrounding environment, is scheduled for Sept. 22. The rezoning is the second attempt at promoting the development of new office towers in midtown east after a Bloomberg-era plan was killed in 2013.

Two years later, the city rezoned a handful of blocks west of Grand Central called the Vanderbilt Corridor, which is where SL Green Realty is currently building 1 Vanderbilt. That same year, a steering committee chaired by Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer and City Councilman Daniel Garodnick came up with recommendations on how to modify the rezoning in the rest of the district. Many of those recommendations made their way into the city's plan released earlier this week.

"We need to ensure that east midtown continues to lead as a premier business district—and that means delivering better mass transit, pedestrian areas that are safe and welcoming, and high quality commercial space," Garodnick said in a statement. "I look forward to working with the administration to achieve those goals in this plan."
Be sure to check out the complete document here, which goes into deep detail.

NY needs as much green space as it can get, it brings more life to the cold industrial waterfront and it is architecturally stunning IMO. Like a cluster of giant concrete water lilies.

I walked by it a couple of weeks ago, that cladding looks amazing. Love it when you stumble onto little gems like that just walking around the city.

What a beauty, that last building, the perfect mixture of modern with nice and delicate decorative elements, another architectural jewel for New York.

There are so many, so very many so very amazing awesome magnificent buildings and projects in New York City, and you guys are drooling over a building covered in bathroom tiles? It's horrible, barring that Beekman thing and Bjarke's 2WTC proposal it's the worst I've seen the last few years, the entire World Development News forums have hundreds of projects in the city that are far better.

Hate thinking back of those 70s and 80s days when people covered their bathroom walls in tasteless stuff like that. Recently uncovered some of photos of the house I grew up in and taste must have really taken a creative break during the cold war. Now the bathroom tiles from the era are recycled for a wow factor in NYC, I guess.

They (the tiles) don't look that tasteless to me, when you look the overall appearance of the building it's hard to even spot them, however if you walk close to it, you'll certainly notice them, but to me they look more like a pleasant surprise, rather than some tacky stuff, this is only my point of view ofcourse.

I have never heard of bathroom embossed tiles!
Such a poor statement!...probably our eminent forumer grew up in some Ceaucescu kitschy palace!...
It's gonna be amazing when the joints are made and time gave some patina!
