Midtown West - 400 West 57th Street - Restoration

Quote:
Construction scaffolding is down at 400 West 57th Street, revealing the eight-story restored brick facade. Morris Adjmi Architects has led the renovation of the 1880 structure, once known as the Windermere. The building was originally constructed as three adjoining structures and is one of the oldest apartment buildings on the west side of Manhattan.

There's so many dilapidated 19th century buildings like that all over the country, it's almost jarring to see one touched up like that.

Historic DUMBO lofts converted to condos launch sales at 168 Plymouth Street

Alloy Development has launched sales at 168 Plymouth Street. Alloy Design has joined a pair of pre-war loft buildings into a 46-unit complex, topped with newly-constructed penthouses that combine the avant-garde with historic inspiration. The storied project, which spans three centuries of development, boasts a diverse array of apartments with varied resident experiences and diverse finish palettes.

DUMBO’s two-decade transformation from an industrial precinct to an iconic residential enclave has been so thorough that new loft conversions are becoming scarce. For their fifth DUMBO project, Alloy has snagged a pair of pre-war factories just east of the Manhattan Bridge. Though both once served as part of the Masury Paint Works, which the Landmarks Preservation Commission calls “one of the most important paint manufacturing companies” of its time, the two buildings’ distinct styles have prompted distinct aesthetic solutions.

The five-story 50 Jay Street, designed by architect P. Faust and built in 1891, sports round arches that mark its aesthetic as that of the American Round Arch style, derived from the German Rundbogenstil. Alloy has renovated the structure as Brick and Timber Homes, where beams and columns of longleaf pine frame walls of restored 19th century brick. The penthouse addition sports broad, floor-to-ceiling windows, arched in homage to the factory below.

The seven-story 42 Jay Street, built next door in 1921, exemplifies the concrete-framed “daylight factory,” where then-recent concept of structural framing created broad widows that liberated the worker from toiling in dark spaces. Sunshine, which remains a sought-after commodity in the crowded city, is in ample supply in the aptly named Daylight Factory Homes. The penthouse above further refines the concept, where a jewel-box of thin concrete piers and unobstructed plate glass windows gazes upon the Brooklyn and Manhattan skylines.

Leasing launches at 30 Morningside Drive, landmark rental conversion at former St. Luke's Hospital

By Vitali Ogorodnikov
Monday, June 17, 2019

After years of careful planning and collaboration with the Landmarks Preservation Commission, developer Delshah Capital has launched rental leasing at 30 Morningside Drive, a luxury conversion at the former St. Luke’s Hospital building. The architects at CetraRuddy brought new life into a languishing landmark, which was revived as 205 exquisite rentals across from Morningside Park.

In 1896, St. Luke’s Hospital rose across West 113th Street from the rising Cathedral of St. John the Divine, which would stand as the world’s largest cathedral. The hospital was designed in the French Renaissance style by Ernest Flagg, an École de Beaux-Arts-trained architect who crafted then-world’s-tallest Singer Building, opulent “garden apartments” across the city, and affordable housing that was as forward-looking in its modern appearance as it was in its physical and social function.


The hospital’s four limestone-clad pavilions, topped with steep mansard roofs and ornate dormers, centered on an Italian Renaissance-styled, domed tower. By the time two more wings rose in 1906, Morningside Heights boasted some of the city’s most distinguished architecture, much of which survives to this day. Unfortunately, Flagg’s building was less fortunate. The dome was dismantled, one of the 19th-century wings made way for an unsightly modernist annex, and the remaining pavilions suffered from exterior and interior alterations, as well as deferred maintenance.


https://ds4.cityrealty.com/img/d8c6b...ion-rental.jpg

Delash Capital and CetraRuddy restored four of the five surviving pavilions to their former glory, and introduced subtle but effective additions. Contextually-styled extensions cover the near-windowless rear walls at the courtyards, which, in turn, were restored into cozy, cloistered gardens. Obsolete technical features, such as aging elevators and HVAC equipment, were overhauled with brand-new equipment. The Landmarks report details the great care that the team lavished upon the century-old masterpiece.

30 Morningside Heights rises nine stories high, yet the views from its perch atop Morningside Park rival those from the skyscrapers at Central Park West. Residents awake to a rising sun that emerges atop the low-slung rooftops of Harlem, which stretches beneath the verdant cliff.

Rental prices start run from $3,350 for studios to $9,692 for a three-bedroom penthouse. Amenities include a fitness center, game room, lounge, library, and more. Residents may take pleasure in the knowledge that not only does their rental contract open the doors to opulent luxury, but, through the building’s original sale, also finances extensive facility improvements at St. Luke’s Hospital, now operated by Mount Sinai, which will prolong the lives of New Yorkers for years to come.

Latest design at One Sullivan Place shows 12-story condo rising above Prospect Park

By Vitali Ogorodnikov
Monday, June 10, 2019


https://ds4.cityrealty.com/img/f3c82...wn-heights.jpg

Credit: RKTB Architects

RKTB Architects have revealed their latest design for One Sullivan Place, a 12-story rental development across from the Brooklyn Botanical Garden in Crown Heights. The 59,000-square-foot design boldly expands the 25,000-square-foot proposal from 2015, and features 54 one-, two-, and three-bedroom units, as well as below-ground parking and other amenities.

The building will form the southern bookend for a stately row of Garden-facing, pre-war apartment buildings. RKTB Architects’ portfolio of contextual design and historic preservation perfectly positions the firm to delicately set a large, prominent building within sensitive historical context.

The contemporary-styled corner boldly anchors the crossing of Washington Avenue and Sullivan Place. Three reed-like, lime-green mullions playfully nod to the Garden across the street. The warm, beige brick at the side walls matches the jubilant Jazz Age zigzags at 1035 Washington Avenue, a six-story apartment building that wraps around the project site on either side.

Massive, 30-foot cantilevers at the upper floors effectively utilize its neighbor’s air rights, while preserving the ornate, pre-war structure. Street-facing setbacks soften the presence of the prominent pinnacle, and create terraces that overlook the awe-inspiring expanse of the Botanical Garden, Prospect Park, and the Downtown Brooklyn and Manhattan skylines in the distance.

The deferential design was a deliberate gesture on behalf of the architects. Peter Bafitis, AIA, RKTB’s managing principal, affirms the design intent to “leverage the undeveloped space above the neighboring buildings,” while “showing sensitivity to the architectural context of this beloved New York City neighborhood and its proximity to Prospect Park across the street.”

Great this heritage building is surviving brutal NY's building boom - but I think they should definitely reconstruct the former cupola, the middle part and the original roof!

erbse, that would be my hope as well. The good news is that the centerpiece tower was not part of the renovation, and neither was the fifth surviving wing. Ideally, I would love to see the cupola rebuilt, the fifth wing restored, and the ugly midcentury addition (which replaced the sixth wing, left of the cupola) demolished and replaced with a larger building that combines new hospital space on the lower floors with residential (or other) space in a well-designed tower above, in a combo similar to 1214 Fifth Avenue, which combines Mt. Sinai's new facilities with an apartment tower above.

By the way, your signature quote is relevant to the discussion.

East Village - 137 2nd Ave

The Wing’s new HQ takes over a historic NYC building

Quote:
As co-working firm The Wing continues to grow, they’ve moved into a new home that takes the idea of a corporate headquarters to the next, uber-cozy level. The company has taken over all 22,000 square feet and four floors of the former Stuyvesant Polyclinic building at 137 Second Avenue with a sprawling office space that fits the brand’s design-forward signature: pastel colors, branded wallpaper, chic custom furniture and a host of features for women, including a lactation room.

Lower East Side - New Museum - 231 Bowery

New Museum unveils new, Rem Koolhaas-designed addition


Quote:
The cultural institution has unveiled the design for its forthcoming 60,000-square-foot addition, designed by Rem Koolhaas and Shohei Shigematsu of OMA, which will sit next to the museum’s current blocky building on Bowery. The new structure will replace an existing six-story building that the museum acquired more than a decade ago.

The expansion, first announced in 2016, will add much-needed space to the museum. It’ll double the square footage of its galleries, with three levels that will connect to the existing galleries in the original SANAA-designed building. It will also address some of the spatial issues with the current building—namely, the fact that the ground-floor lobby can become cramped on busy days, and the need for more elevators. The lobbies of the two buildings will be joined into one, much larger space, with a new bookstore and an 80-seat restaurant...

...The museum expects to break ground on the addition next year, with a target opening date in 2022. Plans for the new building were filed with the DOB earlier this spring. It’ll cost $63 million, and a large chunk of that—$20 million—has been acquired through a gift from longtime patron Toby Devan Lewis, for whom the new structure will be named.
Currently:

Park Slope, Brooklyn - 167 Fourth Avenue

Exclusive Reveal For ODA’s Cantilevering-Contemporary 167 Fourth Avenue


Quote:
Developer Claudio Soifer has revealed fresh renderings of a new 12-story, mixed-use development in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Located at 167 Fourth Avenue and formerly referred to as 639 Degraw Street, the structure will replace several vacant lots.

Designed by ODA, the building features the firm’s characteristic cubic style with a series of stepped setbacks and balconies. The concrete-formed structure appears to be clad in red brick masonry and glass elements.

From the ground up, the structure will contain both commercial area and community-oriented facilities within the lower levels. The building’s second through 12th floors will contain 57 residences along with an undisclosed amenities package. When complete, the entire development will yield 220,000 square feet and top off at 125 feet tall.
