57th Street Development Boom: Becoming New York's Most Prominent Artery


While 42nd and 34th Streets have been the historic focal points of Manhattan, the newest wave of development will propel 57th Street to a similar significance. The difference will be in terms of who actually uses each artery; 34th and 42nd are both dominated by transit hubs (Penn Station and Grand Central, respectively), while 57th's significance will be purely from a density/architectural standpoint. Thus, while 34th and 42nd are dominated by tourists and commuters, 57th could potentially be the most legitimate hub for people who actually live in Manhattan.



At the moment, there are at least eight projects under construction (or imminently so) along 57th Street, with two of these projects exceeding 1,000 feet. Impressive height is only one of the features of the projects along 57th Street--groundbreaking designs that could change the direction of modern architecture are another.



Immediately across the street at 610 West 57th, AvalonBay has plans for a 48-story mixed use tower. The bulk of the tower will be residential, but the lowest floors will contain approximately 270,000 square feet of retail space. The residential component is expected, but such a large addition of retail would be a major transformation for the western portion of 57th, currently devoid of large stores.

Further east along 57th, development promises enormous potential. Nothing official has been released for 225 West 57th, but the large plot (owned by Extell) holds promise for something incredibly large--the site has roughly 1.3 million square feet of air rights, 30% more than Extell's One57 rising one block to the east.

The next block has the most activity of all, with three projects now in various stages of construction. As mentioned, One57 continues to rise, with topping-out likely before summer. One57 will be 57th Street's first 1,000'+ building, but it won't be the sole holder of the distinction for long. On the same block, the Hotel Willow is also under construction, and the building is almost above street-level. Across the street, the lot of 105 West 57th lies vacant, however recent buzz indicates the site should be under construction as well by the end of the year, adding another almost 700' tower to an incredibly dense block.

The most impressive proposal of all lies another few blocks to the east, at 432 Park Avenue. The retail component fronting 57th may have the address of 50 East 57th, and the building's location at the intersection of two of New York's most desirable thoroughfares couldn't be more prime. Recent Department of Buildings filings indicate the building will rise to just short of 1,400 feet, although nothing has been finalized.

Finally, the project at 250 East 57th will be rising soon as well (718' to the top). The building on the project's site is currently a school, and the developer has almost completed its replacement nearby--demolition should begin shortly, allowing construction to proceed on the large project (which will also feature a new Whole Foods as part of its retail component).



An interesting caveat for the projects along the eastern end of 57th Street is the potential rezoning of the neighborhood. Mayor Bloomberg wants to upzone the 'Midtown East' district by 20-30%, as New York's current office market is incredibly old by global standards. 250 East 57th is beyond the scope of the rezoning (as it's along Second Avenue), however 432 Park would definitely be impacted. Fast-tracking the zoning change, which seems to be Bloomberg's intention, could mean a tower even taller than the already proposed behemoth at 1,400' or so.

I anticipate 225 W 57th. To compete with 432Park and Torre Verre, Extell will build a magnificent landmark.

I love all of the structures from the early 1800s which surround Astor Place. Abraham Lincoln came to the Cooper Union building shown above give a speech against slavery before he was president.

Not 18. Maybe 10-12. And i think that soon will appear some interesting projects.

L&L Seeks Architect For New Park Avenue Tower



L&L Holdings has taken a major step towards erecting the first new office tower along Park Avenue in more than 30 years. The Wall Street Journal reported the firm has reached out to 11 big-name architects, including three Pritzker Prize winners, for design ideas on a new skyscraper at 425 Park Avenue, between 55th and 56th Streets.

L&L Holdings acquired the long-term lease on the existing building in a partnership with Lehman Brothers Holdings in 2006. In an effort to boost revenue on the prime Park Avenue site, it wants to demolish the existing 31-story, 567,000-square-foot, circa-1950s office tower and replace it with a new $750 million building. The property is currently mostly leased with rents of about $50 to $70 per square foot. The Journal speculated that a new building would attract rents of more than $100 per foot.

To build as tall as possible per building codes, L&L Holdings must keep 25 percent of the existing structure, although Bloomberg is working to change those rules. In the meantime, L&L hopes to have the building vacant by 2015 so that demolition can start and the building can be complete by 2017.

The land underneath the building was purchased last year by TIAA-CREF for $315M.

[...]
This will likely be a skyscraper although in the era of 432 Park Ave, a supertall can't be ruled out...

25 Story Hotel Sneaks Up On Meatpacking District

Quote:


Permits filed with New York's Department of Buildings show a new hotel is set to rise at 414 West 15th Street, which is possibly confirmed by these renderings from Stonehill Taylor. The project, which is in the heart of the Meatpacking, adjacent to Chelsea Market, will rise to 25 stories and 284 feet, and have 158 rooms.

That's doesn't account for the entire Hudson Yards neighborhood outside of Relateds development which will see dozens of new buildings, the towers that will follow East Midtowns rezoning, anything in Lower Manhattan outside of the WTC like 99 Church, 50 West, 56 Leonard, Nobu Tower all over 700 feet, or anything in Brooklyn, Jersey City, Queens, Long Island City, or anything in Manhattan below about 550 feet because there is just far too much to keep track of.

Even just the projects showed in that render include 17-22 projects over 700 feet, and at least 12 supertalls, depending on the Hudson Yards. I think any city in the world would be happy with 20 700+ footers over 18 year.

Plus, projects that get built between now and then that we don't know about. Like this 600+ footer in Midtown is already doing site preparation, and will be done in about 2 years and came together really quickly.


Starwood's Crystal Vision

By CRAIG KARMIN And KRIS HUDSON



"Trying to tap into Manhattan's hot market for luxury apartments and high-end hotels, Starwood Capital Group's Baccarat Hotels and Resorts is launching a plan to develop a project across from the Museum of Modern Art...

Starwood is entering a heavily populated Manhattan hotel market but one with limited high-end options, said some hotel analysts.

"New York City has about 90,000 hotel rooms, but five-star hotels are lacking in Manhattan compared to other cities like Paris or London," said Tom McConnell, a hotel analyst with real-estate broker Cushman & Wakefield."

Ideal height for new 425 Park Avenue should be around 240 metres.

Nobu Tower comes to mind right off the bat, there have been some recent rumblings there. Um, 225 W 57th should be there, as should 610 Lexington Ave, and Riverside South, and the Girasole.

Also, not to nit pick, but the first phase of the Hudson Yards is being built on the other side of 11th Ave. Overall, that's a really comprehensive map though. Thanks for sharing, looking forward to seeing some of those green icons turn blue.

Related's third Hudson Yards supertall will be slender, svelte:


http://newyorkyimby.blogspot.com/201...eds-third.html

Quote:
While vague diagrams and models had showed Related's mixed-use tower at Hudson Yards to be quite tall, the latest renderings confirm the suspicions. The mixed-use tower is going to be enormous yet slender, and definitely looks like it will surpass the 1,000 foot mark (although barely--the height would likely be around One57's).

More amazing than another supertall in the neighborhood is how this building will still fail to stand out all that much, given the much larger giants adjacent. The Coach Tower may be the same height but it will be much bulkier, and the Hudson Yards North Tower will be almost 1,300' feet tall.

The renderings of the mixed-use tower aren't too detailed, but they do show a building whose profile is at least different from most other tall towers. More detailed renderings are sure to come as the opening date (per the below Related brochure) is 2017.

World Trade Center's main tower to be topped by state-of-the-art radio, TV broadcast facility



Published: Friday, April 27, 2012

NEW YORK — Taking advantage of its 1,176-foot height, including a 408-foot antenna, the main tower at the new World Trade Center site will be topped by a state-of-the-art radio and television broadcast facility expected to generate $10 million a year, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said yesterday.

The Durst Organization, the real estate firm that manages and has a $100 million equity stake in the tower, formally known as WTC 1, will invest $34 million in the new broadcast facility, which will serve as a transmitter for signals generated by broadcasters at their own studios elsewhere.
