Designs For 3rd Section Of NY's High Line Unveiled
March 13 2012



New York - New York City parks officials and advocates have unveiled designs for the third and final section of the High Line, an elevated stretch of historic freight rail line in Manhattan that has been converted to a public park.

The final section will wrap around the Hudson Rail Yards between West 30th and West 34th streets.

Construction will be closely coordinated with the development of Hudson Yards, which will feature more than 12 million square feet of new office, residential, retail and cultural space.

Officials say the final section will cost about $90 million. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2013 with a full public opening scheduled for the spring of 2014.

The designs were presented at a community meeting on Monday night.

Currently, NYC is kicking every city's ass when it comes to engaging urban spaces.

SCOPE-ing Out West 57th Street: Art Fair Takes Over Durst Pyramid Site
By Matt Chaban 3/12 6:30pm



Next month, one of the most anticipated groundbreakings is set to take place at the corner of 57th Street and the Hudson River. There, the Durst Organization will sink its shovels in preparation for Bjarke Ingel’s unusual apartment pyramid. Before that fanfare begins, another triangular structure has quietly risen on the lot, only the latest project to occupy the not-quite dormant site. The giant white tent is this year’s home for nomadic SCOPE art fair.

“I was hoping if we built it, they would come, and so far, they have come,” Alexis Hubshman said. “This is easily our best year yet.”

It does not hurt that the tent is just a block north of Pier 94, where the Armory Show has camped out for the past few decades. “I would be lying if I said that the convenience of it wasn’t important,” Mr. Hubshman said.

Now with 60% more curves!

Greenpoint Landing comes ashore

Quote:


Renderings Released for 'Greenpoint Landing': More Miami on the East River

While only vague massing studies have previously been seen regarding the redevelopment of Greenpoint's waterfront, we now have some concrete renderings from the apparent master plan, dubbed 'Greenpoint Landing'. The Greenpoint Lumber Yard is being redeveloped by the Park Tower Group, who--as the Observer notes--are working with Handel Architects to create a vision for the revitalized neighborhood.



Handel's website gives a great description of the plan, which is said to include 4.2 million square feet of mixed-use development. The project is expected to provide over 4,000 new units of housing in addition to a mix of retail and public parks. With 11 new buildings and 20% of the future housing set aside as affordable, the scale of the project is quite large. Perhaps most exciting is the project's integration with a marina, which could provide part of the new backbone this waterfront neighborhood so badly needs.
A previous plan set out by Costas Kondylis:

Look Inside The New Proposed Pier 17 at South Street Seaport
Tuesday, March 13, 2012, by Dave Hogarty


http://inhabitat.com/nyc/green-roofe...ll-at-pier-17/


http://www.capitalnewyork.com/articl...s-pier-17-plan


The latest renderings of the new design by SHoP Architects for Pier 17 that replaces the red shed by the Brooklyn Bridge show a more open glass and steel structure that has transparent curtain walls and an open air plaza on the lower level. The illustration above makes it appear that SHoP's design is exchanging one form of openness for another. The present structure of Pier 17 is that of a conventional mall, with shops around the edges of the building and a central atrium that provides an open vertical space. The flat stacked floors of the redesign trades this vertical space for lateral sightlines and cross-ventilation, at least on the lower level. The glass curtain walls on the upper floors should provide equally impressive views of the waterfront and the Brooklyn Bridge, whereas the red shed Pier 17 blocked its interior from the surrounding waterfront environment.

610 Lexington back On Track


http://wirednewyork.com/forum/showth...t=5616&page=14

http://www.nypost.com/p/news/busines...tNZjDu2Aw7M4vL

In what we hope will be a first step towards a new, classy skyscraper, Aby Rosen and Michael Fuchs have recapitalized their major 610 Lexington Ave. stalled development site and modified a loan with RCG Longview. Documents show RCG Longview, a nimble funding group founded by Peter Cohen, Jeffrey J. Feil, Jay Anderson, Jonathan Estreich, Michael Boxer and Mort Olshan, took over what was a $66,395,143 loan from ING.

Before it went belly-up, the original lender, Lehman Bros., had grown several loans to $145 million prior to ING taking over. RCG further reconstituted a mezzanine loan, leaving RFR owing a mere $64,735,264. RFR also transferred the property to another entity with a value of $78,041,438. After Lehman and the markets tanked, a deal with Shangri-La hotels to anchor a towering new luxury condominium project faded into the vacant lot.

In an e-mail, an RFR spokeswoman said the company bought back the 610 Lexington Ave. note and is starting to redevelop the site as a hotel and residential condominium development, as previously planned.“Currently we are going to market to source an appropriate hotel operator,” she said.

105 West 57th: Hotel Crillon Coming to Midtown? New Skyscraper Proposed!



http://newyorkyimby.blogspot.com/201...kyscraper.html

Quote:
Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Documents filed with the city reveal that another tower is in the proposal phase along 57th Street. The future building, at 105 West 57th, will contain 51 floors and rise 671' high. Despite the building's height, there will only be 27 apartments! The building is likely to be extremely luxurious, and prices on the finished product are likely to be quite astronomical. 10,000 square feet of the building will also be dedicated to ground-floor retail, with any tenant likely to be quite high-end given the building's prime location.

International Gem Tower Tops Out


http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2012/0...hows_waste.php

Quote:
A group of leading officials from Extell Development and Tishman Construction, as well as hundreds of construction workers, gathered at the site of the International Gem Tower today to celebrate the building’s topping out, Tishman announced today.

Among the attendees at the 50 West 47th Street plot were Extell President Gary Barnett and Tishman President and CEO Daniel Tishman.

As mentioned in an architectural review of the tower the current issue of The Real Deal, the 34-story, 750,000-square-foot building will be completed by the end of this year. Designed by Skidmore Owings and Merrill, the building plans were originally unveiled five years ago. However, due to the recession’s effects on both the development and diamond businesses, the project faced delays.

Construction began last April and, when complete, the building will have commercial condos, as well as commercial space available for lease. Tishman said the building would be fully operational by mid-2013. — Zachary Kussin

Agreed. I don't think it need to be redeveloped at all. It is still looking attractive right now. I went there before and I loved it.

CIM Group Takes Over Turtle Bay Tower


http://wirednewyork.com/forum/showth...t=10491&page=4


TRD

Quote:
Los Angeles-based CIM Group closed its majority stake in a high-rise residential tower and retail development site in Midtown, according to a statement from the developer yesterday.

The site, at 303 East 51st Street, will be co-developed by CIM Group and Ziel Feldman’s HFZ Capital and construction will begin later this year, the statement said. The project will rise at the corner of Second Avenue and upon completion will have 123 units, averaging 1,568 square feet per unit, plus 9,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. SLCE Architects will design the 32-story residence.

The previous majority stakeholders in the development, Acro Real Estate and Polar Investments, will remain involved as minority equity partners, according to the statement.

Hudson Yards: Look Out, Here Comes the Neighborhood
Mar. 16 2012



New promotional materials for the Hudson Yards project, passed along by a tipster, outline the transformation of of the train yards site between 10th and 12th avenues into a completely new neighborhood, or high-end superblock shopping/condo/office enclave. The prospectus is titled Hudson Yards: New York's Next Great Neighborhood, although the renderings convey a sort of Corbusier-superblock grandiosity that flies in the face of the word "neighborhood." Plan diagrams show the first building slated for completion is the south office tower in the Eastern Rail Yard (2015). There are no scheduled dates of completion for the proposed primarily residential Western Rail Yard's development, but there's no disputing that the entire project could be transformative to the West Side.

One feature we enjoyed in the plans: a Cultural Shed exhibition space in the Eastern Rail Yards. It sounds like a place where one can store one's over-sized sculptures next to the lawn care equipment. Case in point: one can see Jeffrey Koons' proposed long-stalled hanging locomotive piece suspended from the ceiling of the Cultural Shed in the background of a rendering. We don't care what type of engineering miracles that will require
