Erbse, two posts above yours desert punk posted a Curbed article saying construction would start in 2014. All we know for certain is that this can't begin construction until the subway stop is finished and that won't be until 4Q 2013 or 1Q 2014. But like most office buildings, I think this needs a tenant.

That being said, a law firm or two could get this thing built, the office component doesn't encompass the entire 1.6M sf of space, there's residential as well. What also makes this building unique is that it's across the street from the Javits Convention Center so it'll have unobstructed views of the Hudson for a while, and it'll obviously have the new subway stop in it's basement basically.

I also want to say the developer has plans to start marketing the office space soon. In the end I think this gets built, with a law firm or maybe a private equity firm anchoring it, and given the design it'll be worth the wait.

Yes, sorry my bad. I meant the completion date is scheduled for 2016.

CTBUH confirms that:

Quote:

Start of Construction 2014
Completion 2016


Figures
Height: Architectural 323.1 meter / 1060 feet
Height: To Tip 323.1 meter / 1060 feet
Floors Above Ground 66
Tower GFA 1,600,000 m² / 17,222,257 ft²
Someone should add the floor number [66] to the thread title.

^The CTBUH also f'ed up one of the stats. There is no way there's 17 million square feet in this one building. There isn't 17 million sqaure feet in the entire World Trade Center.

I'm thinking they confused the 1.6M figure for M^2 when it's actually the sqft.

still too boxy. FxFowle could've done much better.

they could've just used the rejected Mumbai fxfowle towers here. the turning box one.

this one is a huge let down.

Anyway, no news about this one yet?

The developer is waiting for work on the MTA 7 Line Extension to end before starting 3 Hudson up. I think a 2014 start is reasonable:

Quote:
From Curbed: http://www.curbed.com/

This development site is currently being net-leased by the Hudson Yards Development Corporation as a construction staging area for the MTA’s extension of the #7 subway line, which is now expected to be completed sometime in late 2013 or early 2014. The developer entered into a seven-year lease with them for this use back in 2007. They have been working very closely with the MTA and when the extension is completed the site will be well-positioned to begin development of 3 Hudson Blvd., which will have direct access to the subway. Current projections are for construction to begin soon after the subway extension is complete, most likely in 2014, with completion expected in 2016

Hudson, that's a Sherwood Equities tower. Haven't heard much on it the past couple of years, originally plans called for either a hotel, office, or a combo of 2.5M sf. The site hasn't been sold, or foreclosed on, so it's not dead just in a bit of a coma. But as the neighborhood starts to come together I'm sure we'll hear more about it and something tall will be built there eventually.

That's not the design. Moreover, this won't be developed for years.

For Sherwood's 2.5m sf tower. That's just intended to give an impression of the size of the tower. Sherwood will get a partner to develop the site.

Could the GiraSole rise 1,400+ feet?

DOB Issues Permit For City's Tallest Residential Tower

Quote:
The 84-story tower at 440 Park Avenue will be NYC’s loftiest

The New York City Department of Buildings has issued a permit for the construction of a new, 84-story residential building, slated to be the city’s tallest, at the 440 Park Avenue site where CIM Group and Macklowe Properties plan to build condominiums, the DOB confirmed today. The permit, for a 1,300-foot-tall residential tower at the site of the former Drake Hotel, was issued earlier this month.

The application for the site, at 56th Street, was filed last May, the DOB said. If construction proceeds as planned, the tower, which will offer retail as well as the ultra-luxury apartments and will be designed by SLCE Architects, will reach 1,398 feet in 2016. That heights tops One57, which will become the city’s tallest residential tower when it is completed later this year.

CIM and Harry Macklowe — who has no equity in the project but is involved — plan to erect a mixed-use complex designed by Rafael Vinoly. With 128 residential units and 12-foot high ceilings, the project is expected to cost $1 billion, according to previous reports. The permit means that the ambitious project — which is slated to include golf training facilities and private dining and screening rooms — can move forward.

But the 440 Park Avenue site may not be the city’s tallest for long. The GiraSole tower proposed for 11th Avenue could rise to a similar height when it is completed. The project has been stalled for years, after initial reports said the tower, which architects hope to design as essentially a huge solar panel, would be completed by 2011.

CIM, a Los Angeles-based private equity firm which acquired the Drake Hotel site for $305 million in 2010, has said it is confident that it will get the $700 million construction loan it needs to complete the project, according to previous reports. Calls to CIM’s representatives were not returned.

The evidence is mounting...

Developers Vie For Tallest Designation Next To Residential Towers


From left: a rendering of 432 Park Avenue, 1214 Fifth Avenue rendering, 8 Spruce Street and One57 rendering


Quote:
New York City has entered the age of a residential arms race, where developers continue to try top each other, literally, in the height of their developments, according to the New York Times. By 2016 the city could have six of the country’s 10 tallest towers and three of its highest residential buildings.

Last year, 8 Spruce Street became the country’s tallest rental tower. (The Times noted that architect Frank Gehry urged developer Forest City Ratner to build a few feet short of Trump World Tower so as not to draw The Donald’s ire.)

Meanwhile, Extell Development’s One57 just broke a Manhattan sales record on its way to 1,004 feet in height, which will make it the tallest residential tower in Manhattan. But it won’t hold that title for long. The residential structure CIM Group and Harry Macklowe plan for 432 Park Avenue is slated to reach 1,398 feet in 2016, and even later, the GiraSole tower proposed for 11th Avenue could rise to a similar height.

In the short-term, a Related Companies rental tower scheduled to open June 15 is staking claim to the “tallest residential building on the Upper East Side” title, as it rises 53 stories on 1214 Fifth Avenue, which is actually in Harlem. At 513 feet, it will be the 183rd tallest building in the city.
