Glenwood Getting In The Condo Game



Quote:
Published: September 20, 2013

The next generation of a prominent New York real estate family business, Glenwood Management, has taken up the mantle at the company and begun its first condominium project.

Glenwood is one of the city’s largest private landlords and has a long history of building and managing rental apartments, but Howard and Steven Swarzman, the grandsons of Leonard Litwin, the founder of Glenwood, made the decision to take on the condo project at 60 East 86th Street.

“This came about because my brother, Steven, and I wanted to try this model as opposed to what we’ve developed in the past,” said Howard Swarzman, acknowledging that his grandfather has a “philosophy” of building high-quality rental housing. “But what we’re most concerned with is building the same quality housing we’ve always done,” he said, “whether it be for sale or rental.”

Along with the Swarzmans, Mr. Litwin is a sponsor of the project, as are several Glenwood executives. While other Manhattan property developers have been flocking to the ultra-high-end condo market where apartments have recently gone into contract for as much as $90 million apiece, Mr. Swarzman said that wasn’t a motivating factor for the Glenwood team.

The project, called Sixty East Eighty Sixth, a 19-story building that will be built just east of Madison Avenue with 15 full-floor three- or four-bedroom units, will be priced at about $7 million to $20 million an apartment, according to Beth Fisher, a senior managing director of the Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group, which will be marketing the units.

Extell Withdraws 'Casa de Cantilever' Plans For Church, Will Rework Unholy Proposal



Quote:
[...]

Because of the backlash, Extell and the church agreed to hold off on development until at least the end of September. The cantilevered condo plans were withdrawn, and Extell is drafting a new proposal. They hired preservation experts Beyer Blinder Belle to design the new building, and in a statement, the developer said they want to "find a solution that preserves the church and is acceptable to all parties." Last Wednesday, the local community board passed a resolution to designate both the church and surrounding buildings as landmarks.

That's Riverside Center which should have two of its five towers underway now...



I believe this is the one furthest along, Riverside 'Parcel 2':

Brooklyn is becoming a very fashionable place lately. More of the picture of the future platform in Brooklyn Water Park










I think these are not correct in terms of placement of the background.

It's just odd that the Tostito faces away from Manhattan!

This 20-Story Building Is Going Up on Amsterdam Avenue



Quote:
Equity Residential has had a 20-story building in the works at 170 Amsterdam Avenue since late 2011. Brace, neighbors, for New York YIMBY has the reveal of just what that tower, designed by Handel Architects, will look like. The 185-foot building will contain 235 apartments. YIMBY, for one, is over the moon about the design, which he describes as "stellar" and "a project that can translate forward-thinking design into a human-scaled and attractive final product." We'll reserve judgement until we have a little reality to compare to the rendering.
I knew something was up with those columns!

Morris Adjmi’s torqued 837 Washington is bold and new: Architecture review
http://therealdeal.com/issues_articles/doing-the-twist/



Quote:
The resurrection of the High Line and its rebirth as a park have effected a wondrous change on an area of the city that was already in the throes of frantic transformation. With excellent buildings such as Stephen Jacobs’ silvery Gansevoort Hotel as well as the Standard Hotel, designed by Ennead Architects, the area from Chelsea to the Meatpacking District has become one of the most vibrant architectural nurseries in Manhattan. And that’s even before the 2015 arrival of the Renzo Piano–designed new Whitney Museum of American Art.

Into this mix comes 837 Washington Street, a new six-story, 55,000-square-foot office and retail space that promises to be one of the best buildings in the area. Developed by Thor Equities and Taconic Investment Partners, it was designed by Morris Adjmi Architects.

Morris Adjmi is a New Orleans native, but came of age in the Milan studio of the esteemed late Italian architect Aldo Rossi, who is famous for the Teatro Carlo Felice in Genoa and the Quartier Schützenstrasse in Berlin. By joining Rossi’s firm in 1981, Adjmi was exposed to some of the sanest and most sensible applications of the postmodern idiom that dominated architecture everywhere at the time. Rossi’s main contribution to New York City, the Scholastic Building at 557 Broadway in Soho, is really the work of Adjmi. With its tubular articulation and the introduction of whites and reds into its surface, the Scholastic Building is one of the more creditable examples of postmodernism in Manhattan.

Morris Adjmi-Designed Condo Building(s) Coming to Flatiron
http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2013/0...o_flatiron.php








Quote:
A through-block parking lot at 7 West 21st Street in the Ladies Mile Historic District of Flatiron may soon by home to a Morris Adjmi-designed residential building. The design calls for what looks like two separate buildings, one at 21st Street and one at 22nd, connected by the first floor (reserved for retail space) and the lobby above it. On top of those floors would be a shared courtyard. The lower portions of the facades will be made of stone, while the mid and upper portions will be glazed terracotta. The sidewalls will be glazed brick. 20 percent of the units will be reserved for affordable housing. The street wall facades will require setback waivers from the city, and also approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission, the latter of which Adjmi attempted to gain yesterday afternoon.

The Landmarks Commissioners, for their part, didn't hate the designs, but neither were they blown away. The fact that the facades lack ornamentation, uncharacteristic of the Ladies Mile Historic District, was a sticking point for the preservationists, but not for the commissioners—commissioner Joan Gerner said that the design "speaks to the district in a modern language." The commissioners did, however, take issue with the base of the facade, calling it "horizontally arranged," "too soft," and "squat." Commissioner Michael Goldblum remarked that other buildings in the area have "much more emphatic, much more vertical designs." Adjmi and co. will have to address those concerns before re-presenting to the Commission.

Construction shots: Extell’s rental at 551 10th Avenue in Hell’s Kitchen
http://blog.buzzbuzzhome.com/2013/09...th-avenue.html

Quote:
Is set to grow a 600-unit rental building, according to the Wall Street Journal. One-fifth of the units will be reserved for affordable housing.

Gary Barnett’s Extell paid $16.46 million for almost 140,000 square feet in air rights from the Roman Catholic Church of Saint Raphael, The Real Deal reported. The new tower will cantilever over part of the church’s property at 502 West 41st Street.

Barnett acquired a 99-year ground lease for the land in August 2011 from the estate of Sol Goldman.

Here’s a rendering of the project from construction signage, which says the completion date is June 2016:

Tudor City residents object to planned U.N. office tower
http://therealdeal.com/blog/2013/09/...-office-tower/



Quote:
The United Nations Development Corporation faced a barrage of angry Tudor City residents at a public meeting Tuesday over their plan to condense the U.N. offices into one yet-to-be-built 36-story tower.

Most community members at the public meeting were concerned the building would cast a shadow over the two parks in the Fred French-developed co-op across the street, which stretches from First to Second Avenue from East 41st to East 43rd streets.

The building would rise on part of Robert Moses Park, between 42nd and 41st streets, along the East River waterfront. The project is going through the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure at the moment, and will soon head to the City Planning Commission for a vote.

“I’m concerned that we’re losing more parkland,” Tudor City resident Tim Maldonado told DNAinfo. “Right now, we do have sunlight coming into the park, but if this building goes up, any children going out at 9:30 in the morning would be in total shadow.”

The U.N. Development Corporation, which did not respond for comment, hopes the building will be ready by 2018

Updated Designs For Long-Awaited Astor Place Revamp



Quote:
The signs went up a few weeks ago, and the official press release hit our inbox today—the extreme makeover of Astor Place and Cooper Square is ON. The designs, created by WXY Architecture, have been slightly updated since they were revealed in 2011, but the plan remains the same: enlarge Cooper Park, streamline the street grid, and create new permanent pedestrian plazas. The work will cost $16 million, and it's starting at East 4th Street, where new drainage catch basins, curbs, and sidewalks are being constructed. From there, work will progress north to create the new Village Plaza along Cooper Square between 5th and 6th Streets, with construction starting later this year. At the same time, Cooper Triangle Park will be revamped with new seating, more plantings, and upgraded lighting, and the surrounding sidewalks will be widened.

Work begins 2014 and should be complete by 2015.

RFR gets $70M loan for 60-story development at 610 Lex



Quote:
A $70 million loan may jumpstart RFR Realty’s plans for a 60-story tower on a long-vacant lot at 610 Lexington Avenue.

The yearlong bridge loan from the Union League Life Insurance Co. can convert into construction financing after that period of time. The site near East 53rd Street can handle about 200,000 square feet of commercial development. But the Midtown East rezoning plan – if approved by City Council in October – stands to boost the possible square footage.

The Aby Rosen-led RFR did not confirm to Crain’s whether it wants to start building at the site next year.

ODA Designing 13 Story Job In S.Williamsburg

Quote:
Williamsburg is getting some ODA Architecture action in the form of a new mixed-use building at 196 South First Street.

The 13-story, 46-unit development, located between Driggs Avenue and Roebling Street, will have 30,478 square feet of residential space, according to the plan exam application filed September 25th. There will be parking, a gym, a fourth-floor lounge and a 12,310-square-foot community facility on the first and second floors.

The property, formerly used as a coffee warehouse, traded for $6.5 million in June, according to public records. The seller was Peter Longo, who owns longstanding coffee and tea store Porto Rico Importing in Greenwich Village.

The developer is Jeff Gershon, whose recent projects include a rental warehouse conversion at 55 Hope Street in Williamsburg and a rental at 360 Smith Street in Carroll Gardens.
