20 Broad Street, don't think this was posted before....


Vornado weighs converting lower Manhattan office building into residentialThe real estate investment trust may convert 20 Broad St. into residential but before it can do so it would need to buy the 27-story tower.


http://www.crainsnewyork.com/article...ing10-20150810
Quote:
Vornado is exploring options for the property because, according to recent reports, the building’s biggest office tenant, the New York Stock Exchange, which leases nearly 400,000 square feet, is set to leave next year.

However, converting the property into residential won't be easy. It may be difficult to lay out the building’s lower floors, which are larger than the spaces at the top of the tiered property, for apartments, sources said. An even bigger hurdle is the building’s complex ownership structure.

The New York Stock Exchange used to both own and occupy 20 Broad St.. Several years ago it ground leased the property to Vornado, while still remaining a tenant at the building.

Residential condo units are difficult to sell in ground-leased properties because the building’s ownership eventually reverts back to the owner of the ground. Apartment buyers are wary of that arrangement because it means their units will not be theirs in perpetuity and the land may also become less valuable as the ground lease nears expiration.

But now that NYSE is leaving 20 Broad, Vornado could purchase the building outright from NYSE and pursue the conversion. Some say Vornado could tear the existing building down and erect a new residential tower in its place.

Smile NEW YORK | 61-01 Junction Boulevard | 298 FT | 24 FLOORS

Queens Rental Tower With Easy Highway Access



By C. J. HUGHES AUG. 14, 2015

Quote:
Called the Alexander at Rego Center, the tower, which was developed by Vornado Realty Trust in partnership with Alexander’s, a department store chain turned real estate company, rises from a large and busy mall, Rego Center, at Junction Boulevard and 62nd Drive.

The 312 units at the Alexander, which has 24 stories, measured from the roof of the mall, will range from studios to two-bedrooms, and will include the kinds of sleek finishes common to modern Manhattan condominiums. All units but the studios have washers and dryers.

Nyc search tips

I expanded the search tips. Posting it here for the record. Same tips apply for the Texas Directory.

I will also add this to the first post under "search tips".


= = = = = = = = = =
= = = = = = = = = =

Search Tips Expanded:
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

How to use the directory to find threads in less than 15 seconds:


1) Click the first post # and get the link. In this case, the link is: http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...51&postcount=1

Link to Bookmark: http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...51&postcount=1

Bookmark the link in red.

For Chrome:

1) For chrome, open a new tab, and bookmark the link to your browser tab (below where you type in a website)

2) Anytime you need to access it, just press the bookmark and do the steps below in "blue".

Steps to Find a thread Quickly:

A) Do Control + F

B) Type in keyword (Project name or just a part of it; helps if you forget the name. Even if you don't know the full name, doing these steps allows for quick access.

C) Press enter, and you will see words highlighted. Keep pressing enter until you find it.

D) Doing so will allow quick access, and its much better than wondering where a certain thread is in the sub forum pages. This eliminates not being able to find threads or saves a lot of time.

For Internet Explorer:

1) Same steps as chrome. Bookmark it, and you can even save the link on your desktop.

2) Repeat steps A - C

Note: The same thing could be done with the Texas directory.

Note #2: You can also just go down the link. but doing the procedure above saves time.

Smile NEW YORK | 571 East 167th Street | FT | 12 FLOORS

Project: 571 East 167th Stree



Quote:
The development site at 571 East 167th Street formerly housed St. Augustine’s Church, which closed its doors in 2011.

The church still owns the site and New York Institute for Human Development, an affiliate of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York, is developing the 12-story, 112-unit housing facility.

“This project is unique because it is a true collaboration of the city, state and private sector to contribute to the need for affordable and supporting housing in New York City,” Sharmi Sobhan, vice president of Chase community development real estate financing, who worked on the transaction, told CO by email.

Smile NEW YORK | 350 East 86th Street | 210 FT | 20 FLOORS

Project: 350 East 86th Street



Quote:
Developer Gary Barnett is laying the groundwork for his next Manhattan condo project.

The builder of mega-spires like One57 and the Nordstrom Tower, which is under construction on West 57th Street, has entered into a contract to purchase the site of a Gristedes on the Upper East Side for about $100 million. Mr. Barnett is expected to close on the acquisition of the one-story building next year, when the grocery store’s lease expires.

The store, at 350 E. 86th St., near the corner of First Avenue, can be combined with neighboring sites Mr. Barnett already owns to build a 210-foot-tall, 200-plus-unit condo building.

Random mid-rise under construction in Gowanus...

Unfortunately, disgusting raw sewage dumps into the Gowanus canal during heavy rain. This is positively medieval. I thought they were trying to improve the area? Maybe start by reducing the odds of encountering human faeces??

Smile NEW YORK | 37-35 21st Street | FT | 13 FLOORS

Project: 37-35 21st Street



Quote:
The industrial no man’s land between Long Island City and Astoria has suddenly become a hotbed of hotel development, and now we can add another project to the list. Developer Talwinder Parmar wants to erect a 13-story hotel at 37-35 21st Street, between 37th and 38th Avenues.

New building applicants filed yesterday reveal that the building will have 96 rooms spread over 32,351 square feet of commercial space. The first floor will have a lobby and breakfast area, and the remaining 12 floors will hold eight rooms each.

The plans don’t call for any parking, contrary to zoning requirements. But the developer could choose to include a parking lot that isn’t on the permits.

Jamaica-based architect Manish Savani will be responsible for the design, and developer Talwinder Parmar is doing business under an LLC based in Glen Oaks, Queens.

The 6,500-square-foot property last changed hands for $2,900,000 in April. A scrap metal business and a single-story warehouse currently occupies the lot, and demolition applications have already been filed to take it down.

Smile NEW YORK | 35-08 146th Street | 163 FT | 15 FLOORS

Project: 35-08 146th Street



Quote:
New building applications filed this morning call for a 163-foot-tall building with a school and apartments. The project will rise on a low-slung block between 35th Avenue and Northern Boulevard, and the developer plans to raze several small homes to make way for the 66,762-square-foot building.

The school will take up 11,800 square feet of space on the first floor and a mezzanine. There will be 57 apartments, beginning on the second floor, and each story will have host five units until the 13th through 15th floors, which will have two large triplexes. They’ll be divided across 54,962 square feet of residential space, and average units will offer 964 square feet. With units this large, we’re expecting condos.

A parking garage in the cellar will include 24 spaces, and a surface parking lot will offer another 10 spots. The development will also have 31 bike storage spaces and private roof decks for the penthouse triplexes.

The developer, Flushing-based W&L Group Construction, has cobbled together a development site out of six four-family homes. Each one sits on a 27.5-foot-wide lot, but the full assemblage spans 16,250 square feet.
