EDIT: Whoops, just realized this is the wrong thread. However, I was going to cross post here anyway. An example of "limestone" cladding (for real in this instance) done right. Thread here: NEW YORK | 301 E. 50th St. | 104m | 342ft | 29 fl | U/C

All photos from Field Condition

The cladding on this tower is gorgeous! If only 30 Park Place took their lead...

Those are probably also precast concrete but with thin slabs of real stone embedded in the surface.

I don't know, it reminds me of kitchen tiles. Certainly not what's on the buildings from the 20s.

probably because whatever is left from the 20s that hasn't been renovated has 90 years of wear to it.

I'm sure you're right, but regardless it looks way better, IMO.

Blame the developer. Might as well compare this to 15CPW at roughly this stage:



Or compare it to the Hearst building, which is also concrete:

I'm also not convinced that the cladding on 301 East 50th Street is better looking than the cladding on 30 Park Place. I personally find the dividing edges / borders between the slabs of limestone quite disturbing. Maybe that'll change once it's finished but still. I think the cladding on 30 Park Place looks pretty decent, definitely when looking at it from a distance.

I don't know if this has been asked before, but will the cladding be painted? I don't have much of an issue with it not being limestone, but the grey seems a little depressing. It's more yellowish and lively on renders.

Grey? Looks more brown to me! Reminds me of sandstone

Also if it was real Limestone, it would most likely be grey anyway...

Half of Silverstein’s 30 Park Place now sold
http://therealdeal.com/blog/2014/10/...lace-now-sold/



Quote:
Half of the 157 condominium apartments at Silverstein Properties’ Four Seasons Hotel and Residences Tower have sold, four months after sales launched.

Among the units at 30 Park Place that were purchased are two of the building’s 11 penthouses. One of the top-floor apartments sold for $14.5 million, and the other went for $12.8 million.

The 82-story tower, currently under construction, will rise 929 feet, making it the tallest residential building Downtown. Prices range from $3.1 million to more than $60 million for a combined duplex penthouse.

The building, set to top out by the end of the year, will be fully completed by 2016. “If we continue to go at the rate we’re going, we’ll see a fully sold out product by the time it opens,” developer Larry Silverstein said Wednesday during a media tour of the sales gallery. Sales are being headed up by Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group. The building was designed by architect Robert A.M. Stern.

When complete, the Four Seasons Hotel will occupy the first 38 floors of the building, which include outdoor decks and, on the third floor, a 75-foot pool, spa and gym. Condo owners will have full access to those amenities and the hotel’s other services, and will also have a full-floor of exclusive amenities on the 38th floor. Condos, between floors 39 and 82, will have 10-foot and 13-foot ceilings, and eight-foot windows. The penthouses will also have wood-burning fireplaces.

The blended price per square foot is $3,400, according to Corcoran Sunshine. Prices for one-bedrooms start at $3 million, two bedrooms at just under $5 million, three bedrooms at $5.5 million and four bedrooms at $9.5 million.

Eight floor plans for the penthouses were revealed last month, including a 3,173-square-foot, three-bedroom on the 76th floor listed at $13.5 million and a 5,937-square-foot, five-bedroom on the 78th floor that’s asking $27.5 million.

At Wednesday’s event, Stern called the building a “labor of love” that was put on hold during the financial crisis. “It’s the kind of sky scraper I dreamed about as a kid,” said Stern, a Brooklyn native.

Silverstein bought the site in 2006 in a joint venture with Metro Fund and the California State Teachers’ Retirement System, but hit pause on the project in 2008 during the financial crisis. “It’s brutally difficult to wait it out,” Silverstein said.

The developer made some changes – including adding exclusive space in the spa for condo owners – before re-starting work in 2010, albeit in a neighborhood that’s evolved since that time. “All of what’s happening downtown is finally coming into its own,” Silverstein said.

Maybe it's the color settings of your monitor/screen? Looks yellowish / brown to me

Some good news.

Parcel of Six Probably Doomed Tribeca Buildings Listed
http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2014/1...ngs_listed.php



Quote:
A collection of six buildings making up the entire blockfront on West Broadway between Warren and Murray streets (Tribeca Citizen speculates that it's the east side of the block) has hit the market, Crain's reports. Bob Knakal of Massey Knakal, the commercial real estate brokerage handling the listing, says that it could sell $50 million or more, which basically translates to "the parcel is asking $50 million." As five of the six buildings contain market-rate rentals that could be cleared out, the site is being marketed as ripe for some sort of high-end residential development. A sixth, at the end of the block, contains rent-stabilized tenants. They probably have some cause to be worried right now.

TriBeCa site could fetch $50M

Quote:
Another potential residential development site is hitting the market for a huge price at a moment when builders are clamoring to raise luxury condo projects.

A collection of six buildings, making up the entire blockfront on West Broadway between Warren and Murray streets in TriBeCa, is being offered for sale. The property could fetch $50 million or more, according to Bob Knakal, chairman of the brokerage firm Massey Knakal Realty Services, which is marketing the portfolio.

Five of the buildings have market-rate residential rental apartments, allowing them to be cleared and redeveloped into a brand-new property, with retail space on the ground floor. About 46,000 square feet can be built in their place, according to Mr. Knakal. A sixth building in the group has rent-stabilized tenants, and hence can't be emptied, but is located on Warren Street at the periphery of the development site.

"TriBeCa is a fantastic residential and retail neighborhood," Mr. Knakal said. "This is a tremendously valuable site because a developer has the option to build both here."

If a buyer paid $50 million, it would equate to more than $1,000 a square foot for the site, what would likely be a record value for that neighborhood and one of the highest prices ever paid for a development site in the city.
