Quote:
Silverstein still hopes to land 3 WTC tenant

Developer Larry Silverstein is talking with several potential occupants for the second of his planned Trade Center towers as he hopes to avoid capping it at seven stories.



Developer Larry Silverstein said Monday that he is speaking with a number of potential tenants and is optimistic that he will sign a lease so he can complete the second of the two towers he is building at the World Trade Center site.

Mr. Silverstein's statement was in response to an article in Monday's Crain's, which said the developer is planning to halt construction of 3 World Trade Center by the end of the year and cap it at seven stories—73 short of its planned height—because he can't find a tenant, sources close to the company said. Minor modifications have been made to ongoing construction so it can be capped. The seven-story podium would then be used to house retail tenants.

“We are 100% committed and determined to build 3 World Trade Center to the top as quickly as possible,” said Mr. Silverstein, CEO of Silverstein Properties Inc., in a statement.

Other sources close to Mr. Silverstein said that that the podium won't be fully completed until some time next year since the company will still be working on the interiors. That would give Mr. Silverstein nearly two years to find a tenant or call a total halt.

Under an agreement with the site's owner, the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, Mr. Silverstein must lease 400,000 square feet in the tower, line up $300 million of private equity and secure private construction financing in order to qualify for needed debt guarantees from the Port Authority, the city and the state

Toll Bros Building French-Style Condos In UES



Quote:
About a year and a half ago, I wrote an article in The Real Deal about 535 West End Avenue, a fine example of contextualism by the Chicago-based architect Lucien Lagrange. It was the architect’s first building in Manhattan and, I assumed, his last: citing a growing disenchantment with the profession, a downturn in the Chicago market, and impending bankruptcy, Lagrange had just announced his retirement at the relatively young age (for an architect) of 69. But, after Lagrange closed his own firm, he went on to join VOA Associates, also of Chicago, which describes itself as specializing in “luxury residential, hospitality and commercial mixed-use markets.”

But, after Lagrange closed his own firm, he went on to join VOA Associates, also of Chicago, which describes itself as specializing in “luxury residential, hospitality and commercial mixed-use markets.” And now he has designed for Toll Brothers a new building that is just starting to arise at 132 East 65th Street at the corner of Lexington Avenue. To judge from the renderings, it will be a fine looking residence which, even before it exists, has nearly sold out.

Bloomberg vows to build 10 more Gehry buildings
January 31, 2012



Frank Gehry's Signature Theater

Mayor Michael Bloomberg wants 10 Frank Gehry buildings in New York City in the next two years, the mayor told a crowd outside the Signature Theater, the latest Gehry building to open in his purview, at its opening today.

As the New York Observer reported, the mayor is prepping his New York legacy with Gehry’s help. “You should know that Frank and I had a conversation backstage,” Bloomberg said and looked at Gehry adding, “and we both committed to each other that we would get 10 more Frank Gehry projects going here — in the next 700 days. If my math is any good, Frank, that is one every 70 days, so we should meet some time later today to get going.”

And the architect had some borderline schmaltzy words for the mayor in return: “I hitched my wagon to the most incredible group of dreamers you’ll ever imagine,” Gehry told the crowd, “including the dreamiest dreamer of all, the mayor of this city, Mayor Bloomberg.”

Among pet projects of Gehry’s for the next 700 days were a new home for the Joyce Theater, which will lose its lease in 2016.

Park Place's Most Shocking Building Actually Getting Built
Friday, February 3, 2012, by Sara Polsky



The rendering for a new 21-story condo building at 19 Park Place was mind-blowing enough when the Ismael Leyva design came to our attention in late 2010. Here's what's even more mind-blowing: it's actually getting built. Tribeca Citizen recently noticed a construction update sign at the skinny lot and uncovered the intel that construction on the building will begin in the next few weeks. The sign gives the construction an end-date of November 2013. The Leyva design—which the developer confirms is still the one being used—has thoroughly normal interiors, at least according to the old renderings. But it's not the interiors the neighborhood's likely to worry about.

Extell’s Times Square Hyatt to have 54 stories, 487 rooms

September 07, 2011 03:30PM



The new Hyatt Hotel Gary Barnett’s Extell Development Company is building in Times Square will have 54 stories, 487 rooms and is expected to be completed in 2013, Hotels Magazine reported. The hotel will rise 550 feet at 135 West 45th Street and will be designed by SLCE to feature a rooftop terrace and sky lounge. As The Real Deal previously reported, Barnett sold the site to HHS TS REIT LLC in a deal that closed in July, but remained the developer of the hotel. Barnett had originally intended to build a 50-story condominium and hotel, according to plans presented to the community board in 2007.

Metropolitan Musem of Art Finally Plans New Fifth Ave Plaza







The crowded and, well, blah plaza outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art is headed for a makeover, now that museum trustee and philanthropist David H. Koch has promised $60 million for the project. The Times has the details on the redo, which could begin this fall if various city departments give the thumbs-up. The plan from Philly-based firm OLIN involves smaller fountains—"programmed by computer to provide a variety of water patterns during the warm months"—which will become reflecting pools in winter. The revamped plaza will have double the current number of trees, including some topiaries; benches and retractable parasols; bronze kiosks for information and food; spots for street vendors; and night-time LED lighting

In Long Island City, Pepsi Sign Gets More Company



image hosted on flickr


By ALISON GREGOR

Published: February 9, 2012

TWO more glass skyscrapers are being added to the growing collection of towers on the waterfront in Long Island City in Queens.

The rental towers are part of East Coast, a project being developed by one of the city’s most prolific builders, TF Cornerstone. When completed in early 2014, East Coast will consist of six skyscrapers clustered around the giant Pepsi sign on the East River waterfront, with almost 2,800 units.

The East Coast collection already includes 47-20 Center, a tower with 498 rentals built in 2006, and the View, a condominium building with 185 units at 46-30 Center, finished in early 2010. One of the new buildings, a 42-story tower at 46-15 Center Boulevard, will open next month. The building is angled so that every one of the 367 apartments has at least a small view of Manhattan, and most have sweeping vistas of the city skyline. A second tower, at 45-40 Center, with 32 stories, has 345 apartments and should be renting by June.

A third tower, with 820 rental apartments, at 45-45 Center, is already under construction, along with a 1,000-car parking garage and a fitness and recreation center with 50,000 square feet of outdoor space. The recreation center will have a great lawn, two tennis courts, a beach volleyball court and a children’s playroom, among other amenities. It will be open to all residents of East Coast buildings, though each building also has its own small fitness center.

Ground has not yet been broken on a fourth tower, at 46-10 Center, which will have 586 rentals, and will be on the waterfront in front of 46-15. Rents in 46-15 Center will start at $2,000 a month for a lower-floor studio apartment; $2,600 for a one-bedroom; and $3,350 for a two-bedroom unit, said K. Thomas Elghanayan, the chairman of TF Cornerstone. Rents in 45-40 Center, the tower opening in June, will be a bit higher, and that building will also have three-bedroom apartments for families, he said.
