Looks like SOM took some tips from Portzamparc when they designed 250 E 57th Street. Very reminiscent of 400 Park Ave South.

I wonder what month we'll actually see shovels in the ground on this one... I'll be happier when activity starts.

On February 3, Handel Architects filed a slew of new construction documents for a 42-story residential tower at 400 Park Avenue South with the Department of Buildings.

Groundbreaking is set to commence in May, Mr. Von Spreckelsen said, with an expected completion by the end of 2014.

Yeah. Page 3 has some good articles on this which indicate a May 2012 restart, so a little behind schedule but nothing too bad. With Toll Bros, and Sam Zell behind this, I'm not too worried though.

Today workers have started to break up the blacktop of the old parking lot.

And so it begins!

Great news! The shape of this building will make it very interesting to watch once it gets above ground.

Crystal Palace! Here Comes Christian de Portamparc’s 400 Park Avenue South





By Matt Chaban
July 12, 2012

Quote:
Our pal Elevator View (one of the best photo tweeters/bloggers in town) shot us this photo of new construction fencing going up at 400 Park Avenue South, suggesting that Christian de Portzamparc’s long-delayed crystalline apartment building will finally rise there starting this year.

Almost a decade in the works, the project was left for dead in the doldrums of the recession until Toll Brothers and Sam Zell decided to team up this spring to take on the project. According to public records, building permits were approved between April and June, so the 42-story tower, with 363 units, is ready to rise. Neither of the developers were immediately reachable.

We spotted only one penthouse, up on the 40th floor, according to the Schedule A, but there was this one fun tidbit down in the basement: FITNESS CENTER, LAP POOL, YOGA ROOM, KIDS ROOM, LOUNG/CLUB ROOM, THEATRE, GOLF ROOM.
