The High Line

Curbed

Quote:
Train May Return to High Line With Giant Jeff Koons Sculpture
Mar. 27 2012



Maybe bringing Jeff Koons' "Train" sculpture to the High Line will require less of an engineering miracle than we first supposed. A rendering for the Culture Shed in Hudson Yards showed the sculpture improbably suspended from the ceiling, but the above rendering of it suspended from a crane seems somehow more believable. The whole setup "would employ a gyroscope to stabilize the sculpture to prevent it from swaying," explains the Times. The replica of a 1943 Baldwin 2900 locomotive—weighing several tons, with a working horn and wheels and the capacity to emit steam—would cost $25 million or more to put together and install. (The Los Angeles County Museum of Art is interested in the sculpture, too, so each coast might end up with one.) One possible location along the High Line is Tenth Avenue and 30th Street; the sculpture's already been deemed too big to fit at Tenth Avenue and 18th Street.

A previous attempt to pull this off at the Los Angeles Museum of Art failed:

There are so many projects in New York City that will be completed in 2020. Why on this picture are some of them?

These are only the ones that will be visible from this angle (1000+ ft), others that are less than 800 ft would get lost in the crowd and not worth the effort of resizing. There are a few big projects that I missed though... oh well, next time.

Chetrit’s Williamsburg project shows signs of life



Quote:
A Chetrit Group development site that has long illustrated the consequences of the boom years in Williamsburg appears to finally be ready for construction, according to Brownstoner.

Permits were recently filed for the site, at 502 Metropolitan Avenue, for a 14-story mixed-used project with 234 residential units designed by Gene Kaufman.

The filing, which is pending zoning approval, calls for 156 enclosed parking spaces and at least 56,000 square feet of commercial space. Winick Realty, which had reportedly landed Duane Reade as an anchor tenant before the bust, is marketing the commercial part of the development.

CIM, Macklowe submit plans for city’s tallest residential tower
March 29, 2012 06:30PM

image hosted on flickr

http://newyorkyimby.blogspot.com/201...-new-york.html

CIM Group and New York developer Harry Macklowe are making strides toward building the tallest residential building in New York City at the Drake Hotel site at 440 Park Avenue. They filed a plan examination request for the building, one of the first steps towards getting a development off the ground, with the Department of Buildings, according to a DOB filing dated March 26.

The California-based real estate investment trust filed its plans for an 82-story condominium tower for review to DOB, which will check if its plans are in compliance with building code, a DOB spokesperson confirmed, saying an examiner had not yet reviewed the filing. The filing cites the height of the building as 1,397 feet in total, which would make it the tallest residential building in the city; for comparison’s sake, One57, Extell Development’s planned condo tower on 57th Street will be 1,004 feet tall upon completion in 2013 and the Empire State Building, the tallest structure in the city, is 1,453 feet in height.

Hudson Yards: Could Three Towers Top 1,000 Feet?
Thursday, March 29, 2012

image hosted on flickr


While most of the speculation regarding Related's Hudson Yards development has focused on the two major office towers, photographs of a model of the future Yards reveal another major tower. It has been known that a major residential tower will rise adjacent to the southern office building (which will be anchored by Coach), but less is know about the future hotel/mixed-use tower that will rise next to the North Tower.

With the height of both office buildings set to eclipse 1,000 feet, a third building stretching into the clouds would add an unprecedented (yet welcome) amount of density to an area that is currently forlorn. The tower is the flat-topped building to the right of the large 'shard-type' North Tower in this image--

The hotel tower's design (likely quite preliminary) adds a great deal of mass to the complex, given the other prominent towers both have tapered tops. It will be interesting to see more details start to come out regarding the hotel and residential towers of the complex, as most of the focus up till now has been on the two office towers.

Experts Debate NYU’s Controversial Expansion



New York University has proposed reshaping its Greenwich Village neighborhood with 2.5 million square feet of new construction, dramatically increasing density on two “superblocks” devoted mainly to faculty housing. The plan, initially generated by a competition-winning team composed of SMWM (now part of Perkins+Will), Toshiko Mori, Grimshaw Architects, and Olin Partnership, would entail the demolition of several buildings. The controversial proposal is moving through the city’s labyrinthine approval process and is likely to reach the city council by June. Michael Kimmelman, the New York Times architecture critic, recently suggested a compromise that would green-light some of the new structures while declaring others—including a pair of boomerang-shaped towers— “non-starters.”

New Tower Plan Headed for West 28th Along the High Line
Monday, April 2, 2012, by Pete Davies


http://inhabitat.com/

Crews are ripping up the roof of the former Club Quo at 511 West 28th Street, prepping the plot for a new batch of residences that will rise along both sides of the High Line, just west of Tenth Avenue. What's to come seems to be a rethinking of a prior plan from Lee Harris Pomeroy Architects, revealed back in 2009, originally a mix of hotel and residential with retail down below. The current plan is from Avinash K. Malhotra Architects for developer Kadima Tenth Avenue SPE; the hotel is now nowhere to be seen but the residential and retail remain. The zoning details are still pending, but the Schedule A on file indicates three separate components, with massing much like what was seen before. When it's all done, this will be a gateway, presumably in glass, a portal for park-goers passing through on their way to the mega-hood that Related and team envisions for the blocks to the north.

Along the High Line at 28th Street a 14-story slab will rise with 44 units above and a pool in the cellar, all butting up to the ginormous Avalon West Chelsea project that's now digging down next door. Rising over West 29th Street will be a blockier 14-story stack, with 128 units above and parking for 59 vehicles (and 162 bikes) on the lower floors. Across the High Line, at the southwest corner of Tenth and West 29th, a 25-story tower will rise, holding 140 units. Down at street level and below the High Line retail will rule.
