Rockrose begins process to build Hudson Yards tower
Company starts land-use process for office/resi building that could be as big as 1.4M sf






February 25, 2016
By Rich Bockmann


Quote:
Rockrose Development plans to build an office and residential tower that could be as large as 1.4 million square feet at a Hudson Yards development site it owns across from the Jacob Javits Center.

Representatives for the development firm filed applications this week to begin the city’s months-long land-use review process for the site, which covers half of a city block east of 11th Avenue between 38th and 39th streets.

The site, with an address of 555 West 38th Street, is zoned for roughly half a million square feet as-of-right. But by paying into a pair of funds set up to finance public infrastructure improvements — such as the Hudson Park and Boulevard planned to extend to the edge of Rockrose’s property — the company can boost its overall square footage to 1.4 million square feet.

Rockrose began piecing the assemblage together in 2001. It’s not clear what exactly the project would entail. Representatives for the company could not immediately be reached for comment.

The proposed tower is just the latest addition to the blocks between 10th and 11th avenues north of the Related Companies’ Hudson Yards mega-site, which the city has planned for a mix of hotels, offices and apartment towers.
Rockrose’s property sits just north of 38th Street across from a site owned by Kuafu Properties, which plans to develop a 47-story hotel/condominium tower.

Just to the east, Michael Fascitelli’s Imperial Companies is currently building a 222-unit rental tower at 509 West 38th Street.

Eliot Spitzer is planning to include some 300,000 square feet of office space at his site on the corner of 10th Avenue and 35th Street.

And Long Island-based developer Lalezarian Properties filed plans over the summer indicating the company is looking to erect a 250-unit, 330,000 square-foot building between west of Tenth Avenue between 36th and 37th Streets.

The site is where Verizon cars are parked. If I had some money, I would buy a mid-west Manhattan lot. The area looks run down at the moment but this is a gold mine. Whomever buys lot here is guaranteed to double or triple his investment in the next 5-10 years.

A block south of Silverstein's planned 520 W. 41st Street tower, they are also seeking to potentially build more residential space...







These GoogleEarth images are outdated, but you get an idea of proximity...

That lot is directly above Lincoln Tunnel entrance. Building a tower there would take engineering complexity few levels up above that of Hudson Yards.

So the lot is not full rectangle? Just half of it,a triangle with white buses parked? Even then, it will be a complicated site prep/excavation.

That site is between this one and Silverstein's site. It's also zoned for a tower...








The zoning lots of the Hudson Yards...






As far as this tower goes, the boundaries of the lot can be seen here...

Also, that lot size isn't that big for its 736,000 sf. I don't know who owns that site, but with potential development taking shape on either side, it shouldn't take too long before we hear something.

Rockrose Files Permits For 52-Story Tower At 555 West 38th Street In Hudson Yards



Quote:
New permits have been filed for a 52-story residential building at 555 West 38th Street in the Hudson Yards district of Manhattan. While the site is across the street from the Jacob Javits Convention center, it is not immediately next to Related’s mega-development, being five blocks away from 55 Hudson Yards. Rockrose is behind the applications.

The proposed 565-foot tall structure will yield 467,000 square feet within, with 402,200 square feet dedicated to residential use, and 1,640 square feet for ground floor retail. 598 apartments would be created, averaging 780 square feet apiece, with rentals likely.

Residents will benefit from a lobby, amenities lounge, storage, laundry, and bicycle storage on the ground, fourth, and fifth floors. Other amenities will include a fitness center on the 32nd floor, squash court, golf simulator, and an indoor lounge connected to an open roof terrace on the 33rd floor.

SLCE Architects is listed as responsible for the design.

This permit is in accordance with the as-of-right zoning, but according to The Real Deal, there is the option to increase scale through funding of the public infrastructure improvements like Hudson Park and Boulevard that’s going to extend up to 555 West 38th Street. This could add as much as 1 million more square feet in the form of an office tower, with plans still in the works for its design.

The lot is currently vacant, meaning construction can start as soon as permits are approved. The estimated completion date has not been announced.

Rockrose Acquires Air Rights to Build Resi Tower in Hudson Yards


02/06/2019


Quote:
Rockrose Development recently completed its acquisition of air rights that enable it to construct a 598-unit residential tower in Hudson Yards at a cost of $20.5 million.

That prices garners for the firm a reported 139,093 square feet of air rights from the MTA (Metropolitan Transportation Authority), in a deal that closed in January, according to a report by PincusCo.

The project, according to Crain’s New York Business, is one segment of a 1.6 million-square-foot development in Hudson Yards. “The company filed plans in the fall for the rental unit at 551 W. 38th St. The developer is planning a 51-story tower with 16,000 square feet of amenities, including a game room, a fitness center, a roof deck, a golf simulator and a squash court.”
Quote:
According to PincusCo.’s Adam Pincus, the residential rental building is the first of two towers planned on land Rockrose began assembling in 2002, that together total 1.39 million square feet of development potential, city records show. The other is an approximately 1-million-square-foot office building that does not yet have plans filed.
Quote:
“Projects in Hudson Yards illustrate the powerful influence the city’s land use decisions have to promote development,” Pincus writes. “This project and many others like it have doubled in size thanks to the fuel of transferable development rights.”

Excavation Set To Begin For Pelli Clarke Pelli-Designed Skyscraper At 555 West 38th Street In Hudson Yards





Quote:
Work is set to begin at 555 West 38th Street, the site of a 52-story residential skyscraper designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects. Located to the north of the first phase of Hudson Yards along Eleventh Avenue, the property sits directly across from the new expansion of the Jacob K. Javits Center and a couple streets south of the Lincoln Tunnel entrance. Machinery is on site in preparation for the excavation of the asphalt-covered lot to make way for the 570-foot-tall tower. Rockrose is the developer of the project, which will contain 598 rental units.

New photos show the current state of the site, which used to be occupied by an open-air parking lot.

A preliminary massing of the superstructure is seen on the construction fence. The bulk of 555 West 38th Street will rise up from street level in large, relatively rectangular-shaped floor plates, with a setback at the halfway mark. A chamfered edge down the centerline of the structure gives it the appearance of two distinct towers rising up from a shared podium.

The location of the project will give future residents wide, unobstructed views up and down the Hudson River. Though it won’t qualify as a supertall, the skyscraper will certainly contribute to the density of the Hudson Yards skyline.

A completion date for 555 West 38th Street is posted and anticipated for the fall of 2022.

It's like they haven't resolved the facade at all, so they rendered it as a multiple choice. Is it aluminum panels under glass? What are those thick mullions for? WTF is that?!?!

Are those two different designs (full height rendering vs base rendering)? Am I going nuts?
