from the article posted in the 15 penn thread:

On the Horizon, a New Manhattan Skyline

By ANTON TROIANOVSKI

Quote:

Before the recession hit, developers Moinian Group and Brookfield Properties Corp. also floated West Side towers, proposed to be more than 1,000 feet tall. "There's not much going on at the moment but it's definitely something we're excited about for the future," a Brookfield spokesman said of the company's project, at Ninth Avenue and 33rd Street. Moinian wants to build a 1,060-foot office and residential tower nearby, but construction won't start before 2013, a spokesman said.
title should be changed, the new height is 1060ft (323m).

Grrrrrrrrr. 2013!?! So, basically, this will be under prep for the next 3 years? What a pain in the ass. This probably won't be completed before 2017 then. Oh well, just so long as they build it.

yes i'm sure because, 1. the developer is moinian (for tower verre the man would be mr. hines) and 2. the tower's location is the west side.

you can read the whole article in the 15 penn plaza thread. btw thanks for changing the title.

EDIT: the status change doesn't matter that much. in this case "Prep" meant the subway operations which are currently under way.

Tenant Hunt Is On for Rival Office Projects
By Eliot Brown


A rendering of an office tower that Joseph Moinian plans to build on Manhattan’s West Side.

Commercial rents in New York are down more than 30% from their 2008 peak, vacancy is a relatively high 9% and construction financing is hard to come by. But that hasn’t stopped some large developers from dusting off their 2007-era plans to construct new office buildings.

The ever-active Related Cos. is now pushing its planned $15 billion development at Manhattan’s West Side rail yards on the office broker community, in an attempt to find one or two tenants who could occupy about one million square feet and anchor a first tower.

As it turns out, Related has some competition — and from a rival, no less. Landlord Joseph Moinian, who is currently fighting back an attempt by Related CEO Stephen Ross to foreclose on and demolish his 3 Columbus Circle office building, said Wednesday that he, too, is planning a tenant search for a tower that will rise just north of the Related site.

“We are going to be marketing very soon,” he said. “Leasing reports on office buildings are showing signs of life.”

Development may not be the first word that jumps to mind when talking about Moinian, who is scrambling to shore up a multitude of overleveraged buildings bought or refinanced near the market’s peak. But with fundamentals gradually rising and a possible completion date now three to four years out — should Moinian secure a tenant — he said wants to start pushing his tower.

His site sits on a block between 34th and 35th Streets, bordered by 11th Avenue and 34th Hudson Boulevard — the yet-to-be-built park that would rise to the north of the rail yards. The 1.6 million square foot office tower has been on the drawing board for more than five years, put into hibernation by the recession.

“We have a great land cost here. And we have certainly the best location because we are sitting, A) on top of the train, B) on the boulevard, and C) the most important thing is that we are sitting exactly across from Javits, where our views are unobstructed forever.”

Developers, of course, are by nature bubbling with optimism and only restrained from putting up empty office buildings left and right by lenders who — at least for the moment — want to see large tenant commitments at high rents before they hand over money to start construction.

There are a few other large office development sites vying for would-be tenants, including a Boston Properties site at 55th Street and Eighth Avenue (it nearly began construction before it was abruptly canceled when a tenant deal fell through in 2009), Vornado’s 15 Penn Plaza site, and a site on the far west side owned by Extell Development.

Two World Trade Center towers are going up in Lower Manhattan as well — and another will begin rising if Larry Silverstein finds a large tenant and can raise capital.

Subway on the site where this tower will rise after they finish the subway..

Photo Gallery: Subterranean Construction on the NYC Subway

By Brian Resnick
Aug 10 2011,

Wall Street may be having a rough week, but there's clear progress happening underneath New York's financial institutions.

As part of its plan to redevelop the warehouse district around Hudson Yards, the city of New York has undertaken a $2.1 billion, two-mile expansion of the No. 7 subway line from Times Square to 11th Avenue. The No. 7 crosses just about every other NYC subway line; extending it to the yards will give most New Yorkers access to the soon-to-be-developed neighborhood west of Eighth Avenue and north of 34th Street. The project broke ground in 2007 and is now nearing the end of its heavy construction phase.


Progress is being made on the new 34th street station.


This is the mezzanine level of the future 34th Street Station.


A display of patriotism hangs in the incomplete subway station.


These tunnels, underneath the Port Authority Bus Terminal, are located near Times Square.


A completed tunnel with its concrete liner in place.
