Herald Square To Get 28 Story Hotel



Quote:
The Herald Square area is getting a new hotel. It is slated to rise right behind the new low-rise retail building on West 34th Street, between Seventh and Eighth avenues, where shoe and accessory retailer DSW opened earlier this month.

The owner of the 7,357-square-foot lot located at 218 W. 35th St. has been in discussions with three different hotel operators and is working on finalizing financing for the project, according to sources. Owner 34th Street Penn Association plans to build a 28-story hotel boasting as many as 330 rooms. The cost of the development could not be determined immediately.

The planned hotel is still in its early stages, but excavation on the site is well underway and the foundation is already being poured. Final paperwork has not been filed with the city Buildings Department, but SRA Architects has been hired, a source said.

Owner 34th Street Penn Association is a partnership between three different families. One of the partners of the company confirmed that a hotel was planned, but did not elaborate.

CitizenM Budget Luxury Hotel Rising Near Times Square


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

Quote:

CitizenM, the Dutch hotelier aiming for budget-minded travelers with an eye towards luxury, is building up at 218 West 50th Street, where 230 guest rooms will soon be welcoming some of the 50 gazillion visitors who come to town each year. The concept for the 19-story hotel is by Concrete, the Amsterdam firm that's put together a batch of hospitality sites for CitizenM in "target cities" worldwide. Concrete uses a modular system, "completely prefabricated in CitizenM's own production facility and subsequently transported to the building site, where they are assembled to create the hotel." What's rendered inside for the New York flagship near Times Square is a blend of bar and work-place lounge, perfect for cocktails and laptops with lots of room for communing with friends and fellow travelers.

The cube sign at the top is something you'd find in Tokyo.

Is this visible from Times Sq?

Interesting comparison given that the hotel is only going to be 19 stories. And It won't be that visible from TS but but I guess it's in the spirit!

Really? The mall is a dump for tourists and NY's don't use it. The new one is hardly amazing, but is far better then this cow shed. It is something that all NY'ers will use and enjoy.

Yes, but it's in the sign district, correct?

I'd like to see some of those old brown 80's buildings in the foreground re-clad in the future. A little more glass would help brighten up downtown.

Yes but at the northern boundary near the Gershwin Theatre.

Ace Hotel owner, others buy Temple Court building in FiDi
March 16, 2012 04:00PMBy Katherine Clarke



image hosted on flickr

http://abandonedplaces.livejournal.com/2445316.html

A joint venture partnership including New York Ace Hotel owner and GFI Capital Resources Group President Allen Gross’ GB Lodging is set to puchase the Temple Court building, a nine-story city landmark at 5 Beekman Street formerly owned by the Chetrit Group and Bonjour Capital, GFI told The Real Deal today.

The acquisition is one of the private equity hotel investment firm GB’s first since it was founded last year by Gross and former Chartres Lodging Group partner Bruce Blum. GB is a division of GFI, a spokesperson for the company said, declining to comment further on the acquisition other than to say there were others involved in the deal. The price was not clear.

Hillel Spinner of Venture Capital Properties said he brokered the off-market deal on behalf of the seller. Speculating that GFI would transform the abandoned building into a hotel, he said: “The new owners have the kinds of experience necessary” to make the project successful. The deal, which is currently in contract, will likely close in the next few weeks, he said.

Temple Court, an historic brick and terracotta office building built in the 1880s, has been vacant for many years, according to news reports, and has only been used for fashion industry photo shoots and events, including a shoot for Harper’s Bazaar and for AMC television series “Rubicon,” canceled in 2010. The landmarked property is configured around a nine-story atrium surrounded by Victorian era railings.

The building was reported to be in contract to hotelier Andrew Balazs last year; but a spokesperson for Balazs, who had been interested in sprucing up the declining building and converting it into a hotel, said he had never signed on the dotted line.

“[Balazs] took a close look at it but then walked away from the deal because it didn’t make sense,” the spokesperson said.

[...]
Fingers crossed for Ace. This outrageously well-located historical gem is LONG overdue to reclaim its grandeur!

UPDATE:

A press release that just landed in the Curbed inbox offers a few more details on what's to become of 5 Beekman Street, the decayed urban treasure that was briefly in contract to Andre Balazs before selling to a joint venture that includes the owner of the Ace Hotel. The new owner is planning a "297-room luxury boutique hotel with 90 residences." It might be sacrilege to say so, but 5 Beekman with condos might be even better than 5 Beekman redone by Andre Balazs.

Hardly. I've seen much worse. I'll take this over a McSam any day. Oh, and if you know NY development, you know that there is a lot of shit worse than this going up.

Supertalls A-Go-Go!

Journal Square Development: Jersey City's First Supertall?


http://handelarch.com/projects/type/...sidential.html

Quote:
Monday, March 19, 2012

Renderings retrieved from the website of Handel Architects reveal a massive new project coming to Journal Square in Jersey City. While no height figures have been released, Handel does state that the tallest building will rise to 82 floors. Given modern floor heights, that means the tallest tower is likely over 1,000 feet tall--a major milestone that Jersey City has yet to surpass (its current tallest, the Goldman Sachs Tower, is 781 feet to the roof).

The project is going to consist of three towers, and a mix of office, residential, and retail, although the project will be chiefly residential, with 2,000 new units. One of the main components is a large plaza occupying a portion of the lot, providing a focal point for public gathering and much needed open space in an area that is densifying quite rapidly. As development pressures continue to rise, Jersey City should continue gaining substantial verticality. It will be interesting to see whether Brooklyn and Long Island City answer their competition across the Hudson River with supertall developments of their own.

If you lived in NYC or even NYS you would understand why this doesn't belong in this thread. Jersey City is in New Jersey, look at a map!
