Malls are anathema to New Yorkers so while there are a few malls in the city, mainly in the outer boroughs, they don't elicit much enthusiasm and none could be descibed as 'the best' of anything. The proposed lower floor areas in Hudson Yards that you linked to will be a mix of uses from trading floors for a big financial firm to small shops and restaurants. Upscale mall-type retail environments can be found at Trump Tower, Time Warner Center, World Financial Center (U/C) and the new Westfield development at World Trade Center (U/C). As always, the best shopping is on Fifth and Madison Avenues.

Unveiled> City Point Phase Two
Cook+Fox designs a pair of towers in Downtown Brooklyn.



With a four-story retail complex ready to open along Brooklyn’s Fulton Street Mall, City Point’s second phase, designed by Cook+Fox with Lee Weintraub Landscape Architecture, is ready to move forward. Phase two consists of two residential towers—standing 19 and 30 stories and holding a combined 650 units—sitting atop a 500,000-square-foot retail podium. “The whole project is envisioned conceptually as one project, a big mixed-use transit-oriented development,” said Cook+Fox partner Rick Cook. “This is a perfect spot for a tall building in Brooklyn.”

Cook said the towers’ skins are currently being designed, but each building will have its own identity. “We intend to play off a similar fenestration pattern and skin” of the first phase, Cook said, which could incorporate the same custom-glazed white terra-cotta tiles. Landscaped areas are subtly incorporated into the site and on the rooftops. “We’ve created a series of recesses on the street wall where we could incorporate green spaces,” Cook said. A glass market hall leads through the site to the planned Willoughby Park by Michael Van Valkenburgh. A future third phase calls for an even taller building that Cook said will anchor the corner with a strong sense of verticality.

Barnett poses obstacle to Vornado’s Central Park South development
April 30, 2012 08:30AM



Vornado Realty Trust’s plans for a luxury condominium along Central Park South are being stalled by rival developer Gary Barnett, according to the Wall Street Journal. The Extell Development CEO holds a lease for the ground-floor garage at 220 Central Park South, a building Vornado wants to demolish to make way for a 41-story new development, and is refusing to vacate the property.

Vornado has spent $40 million to buy out residential tenants, but has been unsuccessful in attempts to reach a similar agreement with Barnett, who bought an interest in the lease a few years ago and holds it for another five years.

“We have a little issue there, but we’re trying to resolve it,” Barnett said.

Vornado, which bought the existing structure for $132 million in 2005, is weighing demolishing the entire structure except for the space Extell leases, but Barnett has bashed Vornado for even considering the alternative, which he deemed unsafe.

The Journal noted that Barnett owns a neighboring site on 58th Street where he was planning an 18-story development whose views could eventually be compromised by Vornado’s current plans. Meanwhile, Vornado Chairman Steven Roth said the site would be better than what Barnett is building at 157 West 57th Street

Has anybody seen The Avengers? Anyone noticed where and how the Stark Tower is made? it's a really funny idea .
It's the Metlife tower, but partly dismantled, you can see the tower cranes at the base of the tower, dismantling the lower floors. The Stark Tower "comes out" of the Metlife, and keeps part of the original facade:

English?

I don't think there's any accurate count, but last time I heard it was something like 52 skyscrapers. I presume that is just under construction and is probably composed of buildings with 25+ floors.

Public Slams Chelsea Market Expansion


http://blog.archpaper.com/wordpress/archives/29113

Quote:
Last night Chelsea residents had an opportunity to publicly comment on the Chelsea Market Expansion plan and the sentiment in the room ran strongly against the project. The main line of argument during the public hearing portion of the Manhattan Community Board Meeting held at St. Luke's Hospital was that the community had fought long and hard to zone the neighborhood, so CB4 members were urged to maintain that zoning and not carve out exceptions in the hopes of gaining concessions from the developer Jamestown Properties. The alleged threats of the expansion included economic development displacing current residents, the dilution of the neighborhood's socio-cultural diversity, and the fact that Jamestown was going to make a shit-ton of money from this project and they're not even Americans.

Domino Developer Loses Lawsuit Over Site Ownership


http://archpaper.com/news/articles.asp?id=5474

Quote:
As promised, the court has handed down a ruling in the latest Domino lawsuit, developer Isaac Katan's attempt to stop a restructuring deal at the site. And? No injunction, according to the Commercial Observer. Which means joint site owner the Community Preservation Corporation is free to give the majority stake in the project to its lender. Both Katan and CPC will hold much-reduced stakes in Domino as a result. Of course, Katan hasn't given up the fight yet: his attorneys say Katan has a "newly-inked white-knight offer" in hand to bring "an experienced real estate developer" into the Domino mix.
Not looking good at all for this project as condos. As rentals, it might stand a chance but without Vinoly's overpriced designs...

Pier 40 to have residential development, cinema?
May 03, 2012 03:00PM



Pier 40 could be home to a new 600,000-square-foot housing development. The Villager reported that a new study focused on the best ways to enhance the economic outlook for the cash-strapped Hudson River Park proposes housing on the pier as a way to bring in some income and save the now-decaying pier.

Other scenarios for the pier include erecting a cinema, a Cirque du Soleil venue and a retail store on the pier, located just off West Houston Street.

A task force tapped to review the study favors a combination of residences and a hotel for the pier, the Villager said. The combination would be the most profitable in terms of rent, the Villager reported, and would leave 70 percent of the pier open for public sporting use.

As previously reported, the Hudson River Park Trust is currently working to secure bond power from state legislators. The Hudson River Park project is now 14 years old, 70 percent complete and in need of $200 million to finish its development.

Permits Filed: 105 W.57th St. Rising Soon, Likely Topping Out Over 700 Feet


Old rendering: will the revived tower change dramatically?

Quote:
New permits filed with the Department of Buildings likely indicate that construction is imminent on 105 West 57th Street. The future building will be 52 stories tall, which is one story greater than previous permits indicated, meaning the height will likely exceed 700 feet. Along with the other developments along 57th Street, this will dramatically transform the skyline and the corridor, giving it another notch when it comes to ultra-luxury developments.

88 Willoughby Construction Begins

image hosted on flickr


Quote:
The 57-story condo/rental tower is finally going up at 388 Bridge Street in Downtown Brooklyn! Just yesterday, a lot of heavy-duty construction work started up at the site. It looked like workers were pouring concrete into the foundation, but our view through the fence wasn’t great. Last month there were stirrings here after years of inactivity. At its completion, this development will hold 234 apartments and 144 condos, both market and affordable rate. Construction on the H&M down on the corner of Bridge and Fulton started up late April. Onward and upward!

Brookfield plans apartments for Manhattan West
May 07, 2012 09:00AM



Long considered only for its office and retail potential, Brookfield Office Properties’ massive Manhattan West development site could include residential, too. Citing information from an investor call, Bloomberg News reported that the developer may include up to 900 residential units in its 5.4 million-square-foot plan.

“We’ve always highlighted the office density because we’re an office landlord,” said Brookfield Office President Dennis Friedrich said. “But we have the ability to build 900 units on that site. That market has really taken off, and may drive greater value for us, so we took a little bit of time to study that.”

The current plans calls for two skyscrapers on the site, located along Ninth Avenue across from Pennsylvania station. New Chairman Ric Clark said the firm is still negotiating to begin construction on the platform above the rail yards.
