Either way I don't think that we should expect any iconic tower here but hopefully something better than what we have been shown so far.

On second thought, any modern glassy scraper is an improvement to an otherwise dowdy downtrodden area of the city dominated by brick.

Skadden, Arps, Slate eyes possible move to Manhattan West or WTC
http://nypost.com/2014/03/03/skadden...ble-2020-move/


Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, which shares the Durst Organization’s game-changing 4 Times Square with Condé Nast, has its eye on newer pastures when its lease expires in 2020.

It sounds like a long way off — but planning takes that long when a company is weighing a move to new towers that won’t be finished for several years.
Skadden Arps, we’re told, has sent out a request for proposals for around 450,000 square feet to Larry Silverstein and Brookfield Properties, among others.

Silverstein, of course, is developing three World Trade Center towers, including the completed 4 WTC, which is still seeking its first private-sector tenant.
Brookfield is itching to start building at Manhattan West, its five-acre site between Ninth and Tenth avenues in the West 30s.

An exit by Skadden Arps would mark a turning of the page in its neighborhood’s commercial history.

Although 4 Times Square is often called the “Condé Nast building,” it’s been as much the “Skadden Arps building” since Douglas Durst in 1999 opened the tower, which first established the “new Times Square” as a prime office district.
Of course, Skadden Arps, which also has space at 1440 Broadway, might well be using the RFP to wrest more favorable renewal terms from Durst.
The powerful corporate law firm will soon be 4 Times Square’s only office tenant, once Condé Nast moves to the Port Authority’s and Durst’s 1 WTC early next year.

Asked to comment on Skadden’s RFP, Durst rep Jordan Barowitz said, “They are doing their due diligence, and if they are interested in new construction they have to begin that process now.”

Reps for both Brookfield and Silverstein declined to comment.
Skadden Arps’ broker, Jones Lang LaSalle New York president Peter Riguardi, was traveling and could not be reached by press time.

All segments for the third span are now in place and undergoing threading/post-tensioning. I noticed something strange on the deck, though. What's with all those little spikes?? Anybody know?

I'll try to explain in my best english.
Think the 'spikes' are small steel dowel's to attach the concrete layer they will probably put on top of the girders to the girders itself. (so it will be one peace of concrete instead of 2 separate pieces.

Thanks for the explanation.

I like the safety fence that gets moved every time they add a span.

This is interesting. Possible expansion site for Brookfield or Related. The developer may also have the option to purchase 1.5 m sf of air-rights from the Moynihan projects that is now being offered. Lots of potential here.


NY REAL ESTATE COMMERCIAL
Port Authority Land for Sale
Amid Rising Prices, Agency Puts Two Parcels on Market

http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/...179292134.html

Quote:
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is selling two parcels of land in the Hudson Yards neighborhood, where a number of large projects are transforming the landscape and boosting land prices.

The agency is offering the land and development rights on either side of Dyer Avenue between West 33rd and 34th streets, a few blocks from the mouth of the Lincoln Tunnel.

The Port' Authority's request for proposal describes the land as in the heart of the West Side development district, near the planned extension of the High Line elevated park and development projects under way by Related Cos., Brookfield Office Properties Inc. and the Moinian Group.

The Port Authority has owned one of the lots for many years and purchased the other parcel initially to serve as an air shaft during construction of the now-defunct project to build another Hudson River train tunnel.

The agency said the main reason for shopping the two parcels of land, was to "maximize revenue" and provide an additional source of funding for the agency's projects.

The area was rezoned in 2005 to encourage tall towers. The No. 7 subway line is being extended to the neighborhood. The family real-estate firm of former Gov. Eliot Spitzer paid $88 million for a vacant site at 511 W. 35th St. in December.

The land in question is about 11,266 square feet and has a maximum buildable area of 490,000 square feet.

While Dyer Avenue, which stretches from the Lincoln Tunnel to 30th Street between Ninth and 10th avenues, runs through the land and must remain open during any development, developers have various options.

For example, developers can construct a platform over Dyer Avenue and build a development on top of it. But they can also avoid the expense of a platform by combining the development rights of the two lots on one parcel or on another site on the block.

Developers could place all of the development on the land east of Dyer Avenue and restrict construction to a cantilever over the roadway.

All proposals are required to include a landscaped public space running through the block connecting 33rd and 34th streets.

Just south of that, Brookfield's $4.5 billion Manhattan West project has proposed a similar strip of landscaped open space extending through the block.

Brookfield is definitely interested in this parcel.

Port Authority seeks to cash in on West Side real estate frenzy -An access road to the Lincoln Tunnel is unexpected spot for new development
http://www.thenewyorkworld.com/2014/...ks-to-cash-in/

Quote:
Hell’s Kitchen is hot — so hot that the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is betting it can find a developer to build real estate on top of an access road to the Lincoln Tunnel.

Last week, the authority released a solicitation seeking “to maximize revenue and provide an additional source of funding” for Port Authority projects.

One of the two lots it seeks to develop sits atop Dyer Ave., a below-ground highway owned and operated by the Port Authority. A builder could elect to erect a deck over the road in order to develop the property.

dyer

The Port Authority project is a neighbor to two major real estate projects, Hudson Yards and Manhattan West, that are both slated to rise on decks top of the rail yards leading from Penn Station.

The authority did not respond to a request for comment before this story was posted.

Matthew Lasner, professor of urban affairs and Planning at Hunter College, said the Port appeared to be part of a long-term strategy.

“Clearly they could have waited, but it made sense considering the way commercial real estate cycles work,” he said. “They are banking on 2018 being an optimal time for premium rents.”

Brookfield Properties, which is developing Manhattan West, is contemplating the Port Authority opportunity.

“It is on our radar,” said Matthew Cherry, VP of investor relations and communications at Brookfield, “the land is directly across from us.” Developers have until May 1 to submit their proposals.

The project would not need to go through New York City’s land use review process unless the developer sought to make changes to the current zoning, which allows both commercial and residential uses.

In a concession to the community, the project would need to include a passageway connecting 33rd and 34th streets.

Robert J. Benfatto Jr., district manager at Community Board 4, said he was pleased about the inclusion of public space as a requirement for prospective developers. The board will discuss the Port Authority plan at its meeting on Wednesday.

I like that these developers are getting adjacent plots. The original Hudson Yards - Brookfield project was one big rectangle, and would have looked weird as this regimented block jutting out from the side of Midtown. But now it's becoming more of a sprawl, more of a diffused cluster.

Assuming the old rezoning PDF I've read is still accurate there is going to be plenty of redevelopment north of Manhattan West and east of the Boulevard. Just hope some to the south will happen too.

Sorry I couldn't post it before.

Website
http://www.hydc.org/html/project/rezoning.shtml

PDF
http://www.hydc.org/downloads/pdf/hy...nformation.pdf

And I've remembered wrong. They never specifically mentioned this spot and showed it one of the mini parks developers would make in order to get more FAR. It's page 63. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable can tell us whether this is still mostly accurate and whether or not the residential towers encouraged in Hell's Kitchen will make a significant impact like I hope they will.

Edit Scroll down on the website link and that newer map does show a res building at that site.

they are shear studs welded to plates that are in the precast.

They poured the topping slab over the first two spans this past week.

Lifter is attached. Placement of the third span should be imminent! Probably not today unless this wind dies down. 50mph gusts out there.

If they do place it today, it'd be 3 weeks on the dot since the last span was set. Not a bad turnaround time! At that pace, they'd almost have the whole platform complete by year's end.

They didn't place the span; they parked it on top of the previosly installed spans. Taking 4 weeks for a single span is not good progress.

3.14.14

Third span has been moved on Friday but they had some problems with the launcher's north rail and they decided to drop it. Perhaps somebody has more information.


Ready for lift off.
