RFP Issued For High Line Phase 3, Construction Could Begin As Early As July!



Quote:
CHELSEA — Work on the High Line's third and final section could begin as early as July, DNAinfo has learned.

The city put out a request for proposals early Monday morning to manage the construction of the elevated park's third section, which will run from from West 30th to West 34th Streets, stretching from 10th to 12th avenues.

Companies interested in the project have until April 20 to put together a plan to build the third section and preliminary work would begin on July 15.

According to the request for proposal, the project will last roughly 29 months.

Friends of the High Line, which helps fund raise for and run the park, has previously said the project will cost roughly $90 million and will open to the public by spring 2014.

It was not immediately clear how many contractors the city would hire or what the contracts would be worth.

Friends of the High Line could not immediately be reached to comment on any changes to the construction timeline.

NY Aquarium Makeover: Sharks Won't Just Be On Wall St Anymore!


TRD

Quote:
The New York Aquarium is betting its $150 million renovation on the appeal of sharks with the inclusion of the marquee exhibit "Ocean Wonders: Sharks!", in which visitors will be able to walk beneath a 500,000-gallon tank where sharks will swim around them on all sides. Along with the shark exhibit, the new main building will resemble a shimmering wave—small aluminum squares will sparkle in the sunlight and move with the wind for 1,000 along the boardwalk. The new design is meant to bridge the gap between the aquarium and the beach and boardwalk. Currently, the aquarium is hidden from view from the boardwalk behind a long, tall wall that is attractively decorated, but still an imposing wall. The Wildlife Conservation Society hopes to open the redesigned aquarium by 2015.

City scores federal approval for key step in Willets Point development
April 03, 2012


NY Sun

The Federal Highway Administration delivered good news to the city’s longstanding effort to redevelop the Willets Point neighborhood of Queens. According to Crain’s, the federal agency ruled that proposed ramps for the Van Wyck Expressway would not significantly affect traffic and businesses in the neighborhood.

While the city’s Economic Development Corp. praised the decision, it did little to stifle opponents of the new highway ramps and the redevelopment plan in general. They say the findings work only under the assumption that the city’s development plans for WIllets Point come to fruition. Without that development, they note, the city has found that the ramps would make traffic “intolerable” on the Van Wyck.

Still, the city expects to move forward with the 20-acre first phase of the project, which calls for commercial, residential and hotel development along with park space.

Portzamparc's Second New York Masterpiece Set to Rise: 400 Park Avenue South



Quote:
April 3, 2012

While much activity is occurring in Midtown, the area surrounding Madison Park has been relatively quiet. This is about to change, as the city's Department of Buildings indicates that plans for 400 Park Avenue South have finally been approved, meaning that Christian de Portzamparc's skyscraper can finally begin to rise.

...

Site diagrams filed with New York's Department of Buildings give a better look into the dynamics behind the structure, with detailed drawings of each 'shard' within the building. The many components come together as an extremely graceful (and tasteful) whole, which will eventually contain over 400 residential units, in addition to ground-level retail space.

Designed by Portzamparc, the building will contain both condominiums and rental units. The rentals will be on the lower floors and controlled by Equity Residential, while Toll Brothers will have ownership over the condos. All said, the building will contain 476 units in total--a welcome addition to a neighborhood that doesn't have too many skyscrapers.

...

Besides the retail and residential, the plans for 400 PAS also include a subway entrance, which will be a welcome amenity for the public. The building should start construction this year, and while no completion date has been given, the end of 2013 or early 2014 would seem likely.

Development Thrives in the Hudson Rail Yards

By JULIE SATOW
Published: April 3, 2012


509 W. 38th St.

A 200-unit rental building will begin rising later this year at 509 West 38th Street west of 10th Avenue, one of dozens of developments that are being planned in the Hudson Yards district over the next several years.

With the No. 7 subway extension on schedule to open next December, the third section of the High Line moving ahead and residential and commercial development within the rail yards themselves (from 30th to 33rd Streets, west of 10th Avenue) advancing, the neighborhood’s transformation is starting to come into focus after a city rezoning to residential and commercial from manufacturing.

“The activity really began to pick up about six months ago when the announcement that the extension of the No. 7 subway line was on budget and, more importantly, on time,” said Robert A. Knakal, the chairman of the brokerage firm Massey Knakal. The line will curve through the yards area; it currently ends at Eighth Avenue.

The decision by the luxury brand Coach to anchor the first office tower within the rail yards has further spurred activity, Mr. Knakal said, adding, “This is the most active period we have seen since the Hudson Rail Yards project was first announced.”

Since the main rezoning of the area from 28th to 43rd Streets and west of Eighth Avenue in 2005, more than 5,000 apartments have been built and more than $5 billion in private development has poured into the area, according to the Hudson Yards Development Corporation, a city entity overseeing the area’s redevelopment.

Iliad Development hopes to break ground in the fourth quarter on the building on 38th Street, which will have 200 rental apartments, mostly studios and one-bedrooms. Ismael Leyva Architects is the architect of record and is responsible for the layouts, while BKSK Architects is designing the brick and glass facade. AvroKO, the firm that has designed restaurants like Beauty & Essex on the Lower East Side, is designing the lobby and apartment interiors. The 30-story building will also include an outdoor roof garden, a screening room, a party room and a gym.

The building will front the Hudson Yards Boulevard, a parklike thoroughfare that is planned to bisect the area, and will have views of the next phase of Hudson River Park, if it is built.

Related and Friends Return for Another High Line Tower


bloomberg

Following up on the recent report of the land rush for new developments around the burgeoning Hudson Yards mega-hood, we direct you to the southwest corner of West 30th Street and Tenth Avenue, where the Related Companies is digging down for a new 33-story residential tower. The architect of record is Ismael Leyva, father of sharp dark glass and futuristic fantasies in Midtown and downtown. Related's development partner at 500 West 30th is Abington Properties; as Crain's reported recently, the project is financed by a $200 million construction loan. When it's done, this new stack of residences will be a neighbor to another new West Chelsea tower set to rise one block south above the gardens in the sky.

I made another photomontage demonstrating the evolution of the NYC skyline over the next few decades. I went a little crazy with this one, including some visionary proposals.

Great work! But as i know, Moynihan station towers will never be build, right? And i think in 2030 in New York will be much more skyscrapers, than on this pictures=) Maybe it is 2020?

Agreed, even in New York there can be 800ft+ towers that randomly pop up almost out of no where.
