Stanford Ups Applied Sciences Ante to $2.5 Billion
Thursday, October 27, 2011, by Kelsey Keith



Cornell may have the transparency thing down, but Stanford gets brownie points in the applied sciences campus battle for turning in its proposal two days ahead of the deadline. Not to mention all the glowing reviews from its alumni, like the founders of a little web start-up called Google. Points of interest: Stanford's 1.9-million-square-foot eco-friendly campus would cost $2.5 billion, not the previously reported $1 billion or the initial figure of $250 million (peanuts!). The 10-acre campus would open in 2016, housing 200 faculty and 2,000 students, and take 30 years to develop. In the meantime, StanfordNYC would partner with City College on an undergraduate entrepreneurship education program as well as a local K-12 school for a "community engagement program."

NYU wants science graduate center of its own in Downtown Brooklyn
October 26, 2011 09:30AM


The former MTA headquarters would be transformed under the NYU proposal.

While the Bloomberg administration's eye is on Roosevelt Island for a new applied science graduate school, New York University would prefer to open one in Downtown Brooklyn. Specifically, the New York Daily News reported the school wants to take over the former Metropolitan Transportation Authority headquarters at 370 Jay Street and transform it into its Center for Urban Science and Progress. "It would make Brooklyn the urban center of the universe," said Paul Horn, NYU's senior vice provost for research.

NYU Reveals New Rendering for Downtown Brooklyn Campus



The city's institutions of higher learnin' have been all over the headlines as they vie with universities elsewhere for a science campus somewhere within New York City. NYU is thinking about the now-on-the-market MTA headquarters at 370 Jay Street in Downtown Brooklyn. But NYU has always had DoBro and its Polytechnic campus in its sights as part of its 2031 expansion plan, and the university is moving forward with that regardless of what happens at 370 Jay. McBrooklyn digs up some fresh renderings, above, from the NYU-Poly website. Shown are two possible designs of the new buildings NYU is thinking of adding to the MetroTech campus. The NYU 2031 DoBro page notes that the campus will be expanded "taking advantage of available air rights,"

Columbia Wants Science Campus, Too, But in Manhattanville



Heads up, Stanford and Cornell—Columbia wants a shot at this applied sciences campus funding, too. The university submitted its bid yesterday, and unlike the other two schools, which are hoping to colonize Roosevelt Island, Columbia is sticking to the nabe it knows. The executive summary of the university's plan, spotted by DNAinfo, places its Institute for Data Sciences and Engineering within the already-in-progress $6 billion Manhattanville expansion. The three-building institute would eventually expand to more than 1.1 million square feet, with a 600-student first phase to be finished by 2018.

Mayor Bloomberg and Related Cos. Chairman Stephen M. Ross today will announce what’s long been predicted: luxury leather-goods maker Coach Inc. will move its office headquarters to the first tower to be built at Hudson Yards. Coach is expected to take around 600,000 square feet in the new skyscraper, a step that kick-starts the massive, 26-acre project. Contrary to reports elsewhere, the deal is structured as a sale, not as a lease.

The Post first reported the Related-Coach talks on Nov. 30 last year. Since then, the sides have inched ever closer to a deal. The tower will have nearly 2 million square feet.

Hudson Yards -- bounded by 10th and 12th avenues and West 30th and 33rd streets -- is eventually to comprise 21 million square feet, including the corporate headquarter sites, nine apartment buildings, stores and a luxury hotel as well as 12 acres of open public space. The first tower will rise at the corner of 10th Avenue and West 30th Street on solid ground -- unlike other Hudson Yards buildings planned atop a platform Related will construct over the sprawling West Side rail yards.

Related could facilitate Time Warner swap in Hudson Yards



Now that Coach is on the books, Hudson Yards' next office tenant could be Time Warner, according to the New York Post. The namesake of Related Companies' Columbus Circle complex has been looking to downsize from the 864,000-square-foot space it owns at the Time Warner Center, and other city office space, in an effort to cut costs. Related is considering offering the media giant an opportunity to swap its space for a smaller home in Hudson Yards

Williamsburg Group Proposes Arts Center, Gallery-Condo for New Domino



It's been awfully quiet at the Domino Sugar Factory lately, which can only mean one thing: time for the community groups to swoop back in! The current $2 billion project encompasses 2,200 new units designed by architect Rafael Viñoly, plus a Beyer Blinder Belle-designed addition to three landmarked buildings collectively referred to as "The Refinery," all of which has been greenlit by LPC and the city's planning commission. As Architectural Record reported in September, however, developers Community Preservation Corporation Resources (CPCR) and Katan Group are "in search of additional investors" before construction begins in 2012.

Developer revives plans for Greenpoint monster project
November 02, 2011



Park Tower Group, one of the first New York developers to see potential in the Brooklyn waterfront, is brushing off plans for 10 luxury apartment buildings with 4,000 units on a 20-acre plot of land at the old Greenpoint Lumber Exchange, which it purchased almost a decade ago, the New York Observer reported. At least one of the towers should break ground at the site, which is currently used for construction storage and movie lots, by 2012. Park Tower, which is headed up by developer George Klein, had delayed the project during the recession and recently shifted its focus at the site to rentals from condominiums to more easily find financing. It hopes to secure construction loans in the coming months. [more]

Oppenheim Wins Super-Secret, Supertall 'Burg Hotel Bid



Miami-based architecture firm Oppenheim A+D is known for super-sleek, often left-in-the-conceptual-realm megaprojects like a green resort in the Jordanian desert and a rapper-backed youth center in Virginia Beach. Now, some of that Miami glitz might just make its way to Brooklyn's "gritty" waterfront, as principal Chad Oppenheim informs The Architect's Newspaper that his firm has won a competition to design a hotel at the base of the Williamsburg Bridge, right next to the Williamsburgh Savings Bank. While he can say the proposed structure called Williamsburghotel (one word, if you please) measures 86,000 square feet and takes up 440' of airspace resting on three 16-foot deep vertical slabs, what he cannot say is who or what the project is for.

So far it's looking like 600 ft. - 1,200 ft.

Intrepid submits proposal for NASA shuttle
November 04, 2011 01:45PM


Rendering of Intrepid's new spaceAfter winning one of four NASA shuttles in April, the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum realized the structure might be too big for its existing grounds.

According to DNAinfo, this week, the Hell's Kitchen museum submitted plans and architectural renderings to the local community board for a new structure across the West Side Highway from the Intrepid Museum, at West 46th Street, that would house the shuttle. The museum does not yet own the land.

The new museum would be a spiraling glass structure with classrooms, labs, a theater and a rooftop restaurant centered around the shuttle. Community Board 4 members largely supported the proposal.

Revived??

360 Tenth Ave. once proposed by Extell and now owned by Sherwood Equities, reappears on their website.

Quote:
[Site 4] is located on Tenth Avenue between 30th and 31st Streets, adjacent to the High Line, where a 67 story, 600,000 square foot mixed use building has been designed. Uses can include office, hotel, and residential.
The Extell property on the west side of Manhattan near Hudson Yards was picked up by Sherwood at a bankruptcy auction in late October. The 67 story hotel tower, designed by Stephen Holl, reappeared mysteriously on Sherwood's website. Is the tower back on? PLENTY of other hotels being built right now...
