All positive signs. Towers like this are skyline defining. Given the location especially. Similar to 1 MW in a sense; adding further mass near the ESB.

I don't really think those "lines of sight" laws like you find in London are appropriate for New York, but this tower kinda disrupts a famous view of the ESB from downtown.

That argument can be used for a number of towers, from a number of viewpoints.

However, this tower having the small footprint that it does, I'm not sure it would qualify as much. Depends on where you're viewing from. But Downtown in general, no.

Thanks for the info NYguy!

NOOOOO I don't want the 12-story building demolished. Well it says 'partially' so I desperately hope most of it's character and presence/scale are maintained! We can't keep killing these beautiful, big, pre-war, classical buildings (Remember the lovely Bancroft building, just an empty lot now). We desperately need to change our zoning so that developers can build tall withOUT having to amass so much land and so many properties. Not only does it ever-so-slightly kill the fine-grained urbanism (created by small lots) that makes NY so great, but also dwindles our heritage little by little (no matter how small). Anyway let's hope they are incorporating this beauty into their massive project a-la-Steinway.

Okay now that I got that off my chest! Holy Crap 1000ft!!!!

Sounds like a facadectomy. Which in this case I'd be perfectly OK with. It's no Bancroft, but it needs to be saved.

Yeah, I'm not sure how much they would need to demolish of that building, maybe just a portion of a wall? Still need to see a render of whatever they have planned. I'd even settle for a model of the building. If it weren't for all of the other giants going up around the city, this would be HUGE news, not flying so secretly under the radar. It's huge for that area anyway.

Can get a good idea of the site looking at post #23 with the 2x5 floors and 12 floor structure (one that will be partial demo'd). Will be somewhat wide on the 5th Avenue side.

Israeli Developer and Entrepreneur Boris Kuzinez Forms Five Points Development
Firm Will Focus on New York City and Other U.S Real Estate Projects


May 1, 2017

Quote:
Boris Kuzinez, a veteran international real estate developer and entrepreneur, today announced the formation of his New York-based firm, Five Points Development, to handle his expansion into the U.S. luxury property market.

Mr. Kuzinez, who for nearly three decades has spearheaded record-breaking and award-winning luxury residential and commercial projects in Russia, has successfully built more than 3 million square feet. His notable work includes the rebirth of Moscow's Ostozhenka District, now known as the "Golden Mile" or Moscow's "Billionaire's Row," as well as the Tsvetnoy Central Market, Moscow's premier department store that opened in 2010. The project has garnered multiple awards, including Vogue Russia's "Store of the Year" in 2012, and WGSN's "Best Department Store in the World" in 2013, beating out Harrods in London and Colette in Paris.

Five Points Development's first signature stateside project will be a residential skyscraper at 262 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan's NoMad neighborhood near Madison Square Park.

Its good 5th Avenue is ballooning with prospective towers. Will truely be a canyon in time due. I hope on the level of 57th Street. While I welcome new developments. I do want them to preserve the Avenue. Adding onto gems, but getting rid of the redundancies. Possibly developments the likes of 425 Park. One that aim to preserve the initial structure.

Boris Kuzinez takes the Fifth

Quote:
Ostozhenka Street in downtown Moscow housed the headquarters of the Soviet secret police, inspired Mikhail Bulgakov’s epic “The Master and Margarita” and was home to the Institute of Red Professors, a factory of bolshevik academe. But less than a decade after the fall of the Soviet Union, Ostozhenka would begin its transition into Xanadu for oligarchs, Russia’s answer to Billionaires’ Row.

Boris Kuzinez was a big part of that. Projects like Copper House and Molochny Lane put the Ostozhenka neighborhood, and Kuzinez, on the world’s opulence map. Now, the Latvian-born Israeli national who oversaw the transformation of “The Golden Mile” wants to build what would be Manhattan’s tallest tower between Midtown and Downtown.

Kuzinez spent over $100 million putting together an assemblage at 260-264 Fifth Avenue in the Flatiron District. His new firm, Five Points Development, is planning a 928-foot-tall condominium with just 39 apartments, property records show – meaning units would average over 3,500 square feet a piece – mansions in the sky by New York standards.

But the developer will have to reckon with a market somewhat hostile to the kind of oligarch-friendly product he’s planning: sales velocity for ultra-luxury condos is far lower than it was when he assembled the site, and competitors coming to market are pivoting to more affordable product. Moreover, he is yet to secure a construction loan and observers question whether he will get this project over the line.

Kuzinez declined to comment for this story.

Skinny supertall tower by Meganom unveiled for New York




Quote:
Moscow-based studio Meganom has been tapped to design its first US project – a slender, 305-metre residential skyscraper planned for Midtown Manhattan.

The supertall tower, called 262 Fifth Avenue, is slated to rise in the Nomad district near Madison Square Park. The skyscraper will ascend to 1,001 feet (305 metres) and will be "unlike anything else built in New York", according to the team.

"A progressive example of forward-thinking and contemporary design, it will include several 'firsts' in terms of its design and environmental sustainability features," said the team.

Last year New York-based Uruguayan architect Rafael Viñoly completed the supertall, 425-metre-high 432 Park Avenue in the city.

The slim skyscraper by Meganom will occupy a parcel that spans from 260 to 264 Fifth Avenue. Two vacant structures are being demolished to make way for the tower, while a historic, 12-storey limestone building will be integrated into the skyscraper's base.

The project will be Meganom's first in America. Founded in 1998, the Moscow-based architecture and urban design firm was cofounded by Yury Grigoyan and lya Kuleshov.

The firm's recent commissions include an extension to the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, the renovation of the Kremlin Museum and the creation of a new masterplan for Gorky Park – all located in Moscow.

"Meganom is virtually unknown in the West, yet have tackled some of the biggest and most complex projects in Russia," said the team.

For the Manhattan project, the studio has conceived a narrow tower wrapped in aluminium and glass.

The eastern facade will feature oversized and perforated porthole windows. On the north and south elevations, floor-to-ceiling windows will offer residents expansive views of the city.

The tower will be topped with a rectilinear crown that will serve as a viewing area. "At its summit, a soaring metal frame will create a striking arched observation deck atop the skyscraper," said the architects.

The tower's form is influenced by its structural system. A mechanical core will run up the west side of the tower, as opposed to the centre, which will enable column-free living spaces.

"The form of the skyscraper is inspired by a unique structural system that separates the building's functioning core from its living spaces, creating expansive, unobstructed, column-free and customisable full-floor residences – an inventive design solution unprecedented in a New York high-rise," said the team.

I'm disappointed. I knew because of the small footprint it could be something like this. Not enough tall towers in the area to hide it. I also would like to see it from the west to make sure ir's not too much of a blank wall. I don't think we're seeing it from the best angle yet though.

If this could open to the public once in a while, they could score more points.
