I'm sorry that I don't actually have any contributions to this actual compilation. But I am very interested in New York's supertall boom. If you guys are interested in the taller buildings going up in New York, check out my sig for NY's 900 footers. In the not so distant future, NY could have up to 16 supertalls!

FXFOWLE Hudson Yards Tower Put on Burner for 7 Train Extension

Friday, August 26, 2011, by Kelsey Keith

We like to check in with our skyscraper thread friends every so often and this week, rendered rumors have been flying in regards to The GiraSole, the FWFOWLE-designed tower slated for the Hudson Yards and first projected for completion in 2011. Not so fast! The firm's website puts the date at 2013 and debuts the shiny tower's new, stately, and as-yet nonexistent moniker: 3 Hudson Boulevard. A spokesperson for developer Moinian Group clears a few things up for us about that timing:

Quote:
"This development site is currently being net-leased by the Hudson Yards Development Corporation as a construction staging area for the MTA’s extension of the #7 subway line, which is now expected to be completed sometime in late 2013 or early 2014. The developer entered into a seven-year lease with them for this use back in 2007. They have been working very closely with the MTA and when the extension is completed the site will be well-positioned to begin development of 3 Hudson Blvd., which will have direct access to the subway. Current projections are for construction to begin soon after the subway extension is complete, most likely in 2014, with completion expected in 2016."
---
The Girasole 3 Hudson Boulevard

Moinan is preparing marketing for this 1,060 ft. tower ahead of a possible 2012 2013-2014 groundbreaking.

Could This Be The New 1420-Foot 57th Street Tower?

Tuesday, August 23, 2011, by Kelsey Keith




The proposed NYC skyline looking south from Central Park, with (left to right) Vinoly/ CIM's 50 E. 57th, Nouvel/Hines' Torre Verre, and de Portzamparc/Extell's 157 W 57th.

A tipster points us to a Wired New York thread that's batting around some curious information on the proposed Rafael Vinoly tower at 50 East 57th Street. The CIM Group-developed tower, which replaces the former Drake Hotel, meets zoning requirements for more than 1,000 feet and now we've got an actual number to salivate over: 433 m (1,420').

The Statue of Liberty will close for up to a year on October 29, 2011 (the day after celebrations to mark the statue's 125th anniversary) for installation of new elevators and staircases, and to bring other facilities, such as restrooms, up to code.

Time Warner could leave Time Warner Center for Hudson Yards

September 28, 2011 11:00AM


Timer Warner Center at Columbus Circle

Time Warner is moving forward with its plan to possibly move out of the Time Warner Center and consolidate its operations at new headquarters elsewhere to save costs, the Wall Street Journal reported. In a memo to all New York-based employees yesterday, the company said it would be undertaking a broad reevaluation of its real estate, with a formal plan expected next year. Time Warner moved to Columbus Circle in 2004, where it had partnered with Related Companies to build the David Childs-designed building that is its company headquarters now.


Hudson Yards

But many of its leases, including ones for more than 2 million square feet of space in Midtown, will expire as soon as 2017 and 2018, and renewing them could be costly. Since not many buildings could hold all of Time Warner's 6,000 employees in the city, possible alternative options would be Hudson Yards, Related Companies' $15 billion development or Brookfield Office Properties' development site on Ninth Avenue and 33rd Street. Time Warner is also looking at the World Financial Center and the World Trade Center.

Even if Time Warner decides to stay at Columbus Circle, it may consolidate its other operations somewhere, a move that could save Time Warner more than $100 million in the future. While rents in top Midtown buildings have risen by 78 percent over the past 15 years, according to brokerage Cassidy Turley, Lower Manhattan has higher vacancy rates and lower rents. Since Time Warner is one of the city's largest tenants, putting it among the top 20 companies that rent space in Manhattan, any move could pose a significant shift in the local real estate landscape,

The buildings at the Hudson yard look so short. Time Warner should move to WTC, then I might care what they do.

I think that's just a placeholder conceptualization. Heights and styles could vary...radically.

I was last in New York in 2005. Can vaguely remember seeing a few towers going up then, but by looking at this thread I probably won't even recognise the skyline when I go back

Time Warner needs an area that can house all of its employees, and Hudson Yards need tenants. I think if Time Warner went through with it it'd be a win-win situation.

NY REAL ESTATE COMMERCIAL - OCTOBER 10, 2011
Developers Set Stage for Midtown Faceoff

By ELIOT BROWN

Two giant real-estate firms are about to ratchet up their competition on Manhattan's emerging far West Side.


Brookfield Properties plans at least two West Side Towers


Related's hudson Yards multi-tower development

Since 2008, the Related Cos. and Brookfield Office Properties Inc. have been vying to be the dominant developer in the area. Both control sprawling properties in the blocks west of Pennsylvania Station but, until now, neither has been willing to start work given an uncertain economic outlook.

Now the two firms say they plan to start initial construction on their sites early next year, which would be a landmark event for the neighborhood west of southern Midtown that has for decades been targeted by planners for large-scale development. Related may also be on the verge of a major leasing announcement. The developer is in advanced discussions with handbag maker Coach Inc. to take about one-third of the space in its planned 1.8 million-square -foot office tower at the West Side rail yards by 30th Street and 10th Avenue, according to people familiar with the talks. Coach would be the first tenant to commit to building in the area. A spokeswoman for Coach declined to comment on the negotiations, as did Jay Cross, who heads West Side development for Related.

Related agreed in 2008 to a $1 billion deal with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to develop the massive West Side rail yards a 26-acre storage area for Long Island Rail Road trains bounded by 10th Avenue, 12th Avenue, 30th Street and 33rd Street. Related has privately been telling real-estate executives and government officials that it plans to begin work on the first office tower early next year, with a major boost from an agreement with Coach.

Brookfield, one of the city's largest office landlords, has been in the neighborhood longer. For decades, it has pondered what to do with its large site along Ninth Avenue between 31st and 33rd Streets. Its current plans call for three to four towers on the site, and it says it intends to start construction on a necessary $300 million deck over a set of rail tracks under the site in the first quarter of 2011. The firm says it could deliver its first building in 2015. "In January, we're starting the deck," said Ric Clark, Brookfield's chief executive, who added much of the initial work would begin offsite, assembling materials for the platform.

Real-estate developers, of course, are known for their optimism and actual construction of office towers aren't a sure thing until steel starts rising. Even with a Coach deal, it's unclear whether Related could get the financing to move forward, given that there would still be about 1.2 million square feet left to be filled. In recent days, the firm tapped brokerage CBRE Group Inc. to market the tower to potential tenants, according to a person familiar with the matter. Also, Brookfield and Related are moving forward at a time when the city's economy is only gradually recovering from the economic downturn—let alone mounting concerns over another recession. In healthier times, the two projects would complement each other by helping the area reach a critical mass of office development. But today the two could find themselves in stiff competition for employers.

There are a number of companies with big leases due in coming years—from Time Warner Inc. to Credit Suisse Group. But only so many will likely be willing to take a leap to an emerging neighborhood that has been compared to London's relatively young Canary Wharf district. Related, led by Stephen Ross, is the developer of the Time Warner Center. The entertainment and media firm is considering moving its headquarters to the rail yards. Related's first tower could be built on solid ground, but future buildings would require a deck costing more than $700 million to be built over each of the two rail yards, where Related also plans open public space and retail. "What distinguishes us is that our state of the art office environment is going to be part of a larger mixed-use project with more amenities," says Related's Mr. Cross.

Related's project has been a priority of the Bloomberg administration's and the city is paying to extend the No. 7 line to 33rd Street and 11th Avenue, currently scheduled to be done in 2013. Both firms play down any rivalry, but acknowledge that there are only so many companies interested in moving, and many will likely look at both sites. "We will have competition for tenants, there's no question," says Mr. Clark, of Brookfield. "I'm happy we own our site—I like its proximity to transit."
