Great news! Would the Kwee family automatically get their pick on a condo in the tower?

Hines in Talks With Singapore Group to Finance Manhattan Tower

A Singapore real estate family and a group of Asian banks are in advanced discussions with developer Hines to revive a stalled luxury condo development next to Manhattan’s Museum of Modern Art, according to people familiar with the negotiations.

The Kwee family is considering a $300 million equity investment in the metal and glass tower designed by Pritzker prize winner Jean Nouvel. Singapore’s United Overseas Bank U11.SG +0.05%and other lenders are in discussions to make up to $800 million in construction loans, these people said. Spokespeople for Hines, the Kwee family and United Overseas Bank declined to comment.

An agreement with the Asian group would breathe new life into a highly anticipated project that was shelved when the downturn hit. In 2007, Hines unveiled plans for the building connected to the museum.

But the tapering tower had been largely stuck in limbo until talks began several months ago with the Asian investors. Known as Tower Verre, the building located next to the museum is slated to include additional museum gallery space at the base. Most of the rest would be luxury condos.

This'll finally eclipse the GE Building for highest peak in central Midtown. Awesome location, awesome design, what more could we ask for?

"In talks" is a bit less exciting than "Financing for Verre!", but still, great news.

The Singaporeans aren't kicking the Ve rre's tires. This is likely close to signing.

Nothing signed yet, but already over 6 months in negotiation. Quite long already. I hope they'll make a deal soon.

Most likely, Torre Verre is one of those buildings which will grace the New York skyline for a long time, i.e. become an instant icon / classic. Also, even not that tall, it sure looks better than - may I say - every single tower U/C or proposed here on SSC. And that's an understatement.

I'm just ecstatic to hear news this past week about financing are in the works with my top 2 highly anticipated projects on my list and that's Tower Verre and Nordstrom Tower.

Plus with news that Larry Silverstein secured a loan on 99 Church/ Four Season's earlier this month has just has me beaming.

Now I'm just CALMLY waiting to hear news for a anchor for 3WTC and my Skyscraper Universe will be copasetic.

There was a week like this one back in October of 2012 or so when this and 225 were moved to prep and Coach got the go ahead. I had to try my best not to bombard my empathetic friends with the news.

Ha. Now I know the feeling and I'm feeling the same way as you did then! My poor family and friends cuz I CAN'T hide my enthusiasm.

It's crazy to think I JUST got interested in skyscrapers in particular with such a thirst just this year! I was really late to the party but looks like I joined at the right time! Good times my friend... good times!
