42-Story, 1,028-Unit Mixed-Use Complex Rises To 17th Floor At 606 West 57th Street, Hell’s Kitchen

Construction is now up to the 17th floor on the 42-story, 1,028-unit mixed-use complex under development at 606 West 57th Street, located on a large portion of the block bounded by West 56th and 57th streets and 11th and 12th avenues in Hell’s Kitchen. Progress can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums.

The latest building permits indicate the project will encompass 1,054,847 square feet and rise 440 feet to its highest roof. There will be 37,463 square feet of ground-floor retail space, followed by residential units on floors two through 42. The apartments should average 935 square feet apiece and 220 of them, or roughly 21 percent of the total, will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. TF Cornerstone is the developer and Arquitectonica is the design architect. SLCE Architects is the executive architect and completion is expected in 2018.

Lower East Side - 265-275 Cherry St

http://www.thelodownny.com/leslog/20...dges-area.html

L+M and CIM Group Reveal Plans For Massive Project in Two Bridges Area












Quote:
L+M Development Partners and the CIM Group are unveiling plans tonight for a new project at 260 South St. that will add more than one-million square feet of residential and commercial space in the Two Bridges neighborhood. The development team outlined the proposal for two towers, the tallest measuring nearly 800 feet, in an interview with The Lo-Down earlier this week. They briefed local residents in a neighboring complex, which the developers also own, this evening.

The massive complex is one of four large-scale projects set to transform the Two Bridges community in the next several years. It will include up to 1350 apartments, as many as 338 of the units set aside for low-income and/or middle-income families. Some senior housing is anticipated. The developers also plan new ground floor retail on Cherry Street, new green spaces and upgraded flood protection systems.

L+M and CIM Group partnered in 2013 to purchase 265-275 Cherry St. (also known as Lands End II), Section 8 rental towers with 490 apartments. The following year, they picked up an adjacent parking lot on South Street, which is where the new towers are going to rise.

In our interview Wednesday morning, David Dishy, L +M partner and president of development and acquisition; Katherine Kelman, L+M associate director; and Alex Kafenbaum, associate with the CIM Group walked us through preliminary details of the ambitious project.

In recent years, L+M Development has become a familiar presence on the Lower East Side. It’s part of the partnership building the large Essex Crossing project on Delancey Street and has other developments in-the-works throughout the East Village. CIM Group is a Los Angeles-based firm that has become a major player in New York City during the past few years. Among other projects, it’s building condos at 100 Barclay St. and 432 Park Avenue.

Handel Architects, tasked with designing the new project, is still working on concept drawings for the two skinny towers. In the meantime, the developers are making available sketches depicting the overall size, shape and positioning of the buildings.

As you can see in the illustration posted here, the larger tower will measure 798 feet, or 69 floors. The shorter tower will top out at 728 feet, or 62 stories (the number of floors could change based on conversations with city planning officials).


“The overall concept,” explained Kelman, “is that it’s two slender towers on a shared podium with a single lobby.” The towers start out 60-feet apart and there are a series of setbacks as they rise. On the upper floors, the distance between the buildings grows to 75 feet. “They’re intentionally differentiated,” she said, “to create some visual interest.”

The team looked at building a single structure stretching across most of the lot on South Street, but concluded that it would have blocked light and views to the East River, in her words, “diminishing the quality of the entire site.” It also would have made the open recreational spaces on the property a lot less appealing. “So, instead we decided on two towers,” said Kelman, “with space between them and a lobby with a ground floor that has a lot of transparency (allowing people on Cherry Street to see through to the river).”

The biggest drawback for current residents is a significant one. The new towers will back up to the existing buildings, blocking windows facing the river in about 100 apartments. “But all of those apartments,” said Kelman, “also have rooms facing east or west that are the legal light and air and they will continue to be used as they are now.” This was, to no one’s surprise, a major point of contention at tonight’s community meeting (we’ll have a recap of the meeting tomorrow).





...After going through an environmental review and undergoing an approval process with the Department of City Planning, the developers hope to begin construction in 2018 and complete the project in 2021.

State eyes massive development over South Bronx rail yard
http://www.crainsnewyork.com/article...ronx-rail-yard



Quote:
By Joe Anuta December 2, 2016

The state wants to deck over a nearly 13-acre rail yard in the South Bronx to make way for a massive waterfront development in the area, which is attracting more private investment as land costs rise elsewhere in the city.

Last month, Empire State Development released a request for expressions of interests, inviting developers to present offers for leasing or purchasing the land, decking over the yards, then building a sizable residential or mixed-use project on top.

The parcel sits along the Harlem River, just north of the Willis Avenue Bridge. It is currently used as a transfer station to move goods between cross-country trains and trucks that traverse the tristate area—a use the state plans to maintain going forward.

The site is part of a 96-acre area called the Harlem River Yards, which is owned by state Department of Transportation and leased to a private company, which in turn leases out many of the buildings to industrial tenants. Because the zone is governed by something called a general project plan, the state does not need to get any local approvals to change the zoning—say from manufacturing to residential or retail—which can instead be implemented through a state approval process.

In addition to maintaining the transfer station beneath the deck, the state wants proposals that cover opening access to the waterfront, boosting the local economy and creating affordable housing. At 12.8 acres, the site is slightly less than half the size of the Hudson Yards development going up over rail yards on Manhattan's west side, and is on par with the scale of a proposal released last year by Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.

The state plans to conduct an on-site tour Dec. 14. Interested parties must submit proposals by Feb. 2.

I never would have imagined another skyline developing in Manhattan, but apparently the Lower East Side is a sleeping giant.

As compared with what? The neighborhood currently has zero skyscrapers, and will very shortly have five, including a supertall. As a shift, that's pretty freaking dramatic, even if the completed "skyline" is dwarfed by other parts of the city.

Great progress around Hudson Yards!

Will they also build a sand-/limestone facade there?
