Permits being renewed for 50 West St.



Quote:
50 West Street, the Helmut Jahn-designed hotel/condo combo tower that has been on hold since its financing dried up in 2008 is—wait for it—still on hold. However, developer Time Equities is renewing the project's special permits (for the garage, the public urban plaza connecting West and Washington Streets, and certain minor setback wavers) while simultaneously "seeking financing," which means that the 65-story tower could actually end up getting built at some point in the not too distant future.
Elements of the tower have already been reworked in the wake of hurricane sandy such as above-ground mechanical systems. So if financing comes through, this one could sneakily restart...

Keep in mind that that rendering is missing Goldman Sachs, 123 Washington Street, the new 22 Thames Street proposal, and I'm sure I missed a few others. Would 30 Park Place be seen in that render? The Kaufman (blegh) Holiday Inn? Beekman in the back right? 56 Leonard sneaking in?

And of course 5 WTC whenever they decide to build something there.

Hopefully 5WTC won't cover up the view of the cluster

30 Park Place won't be visible from that angle, as it's one block north of 2 WTC on Church St. 56 Leonard wouldn't be visible either, again because of the WTC, and Beekman is too far east to be visible. But 50 West looks great.

Don't mean to bump this thread. Hope this project starts going... It's a nice looking tower and will be a fantastik compliment with the whole WTC complex when they get built.

^ Yeah, 50 West will blend in nicely with the new WTC towers.
I'll be glad if this one stays a 700 footer.

I got excited about this project and found this article dated Feb 2013.

Towering 50 West St. Project Still in Limbo

Quote:
Plans for a financially-strapped 62-story apartment-and-hotel project on lower West Street continue to languish six years after the developer got the city’s green light to build.

So much time has elapsed that the developer, Time Equities, Inc., must renew the city’s special permits for 50 West Street, a 730-foot-high structure with a hotel on its five lower floors and 300 apartments above.

“We need these renewals in order to go ahead with the project,” Zachary Bernstein, an attorney for Time Equities, told Community Board 1 last week.

Time Equities has yet to score financing for the project.

The permits, which must be renewed every few years, allow the developer to position the tower further back on the lot, build higher through the purchase of air rights from the city, and create a public plaza connecting West and Washington Streets.

The plaza would connect to a pedestrian bridge over West Street at West Thames, due to open in 2015.

As a display of community good will, Time Equities donated $435,000 in computers and tech support to Battery Park City’s PS/IS 89 and $350,000 to the New York City Center for Space Science Education.

Time Equities has set 2017 as its new target date for completing the building.

We’re hoping to get started on the project as soon as our financing comes together,” Rob Singer, Time Equities’ director of development, told the Trib. “We’re working hard on it every day.”

Far better esign. The old one's curved roof bothered me, but now it looks great and less Dubai-ish.

The old design is superior, but I can't say I dislike the new renders.

I like it. Hopefully, it will start soon. It's clearly on the horizon since Jahn is tweaking the design and updating it on his website.
