Can anyone remind me what the old Macy's parking garage site in downtown Brooklyn is going to become? Sign on the fence says 'storage', hopefully this is incorrect!

The two remaining prominent outdoor multistory parking lots downtown Brooklyn IMO are at schemerhorn and smith, across from the new Hilton, and then next to Brooklyn fair at Hoyt and schemerhorn.

Was sad to see some kind of new concrete slab getting poured at the former lot, seemingly indicating that this location will continue to look like crap for the foreseeable future

A large new condo tower, built by Tishman Speyer. 60 floors or something, and large footprint.

Two Towering Developments Ready to Take Shape Next to High Line

Two Towering Developments Ready to Take Shape Next to High Line
October 6, 2017
https://www.cityrealty.com/nyc/marke...igh-line/13888

Quote:
Since the High Line opened eight years ago, developers have rushed in to
build some of the most spectacular contemporary buildings the city has ever
seen. With more than a dozen projects designed by the likes of Gehry,
Piano, Nouvel, and Foster becoming architectural showpieces, today just a
few unsown lots remain next to the beloved greenway. Plans are now moving
forward to redevelop two of the most prominent underutilized sites. The
lots straddle either side of West 18th near where the High Line bends west
of Tenth Avenue.

20-Story Hotel Planned for 347 Lexington Ave. in Midtown East

20-Story Hotel Planned for 347 Lexington Ave. in Midtown East
Oct 11
Quote:
Despite being surrounded by skyscrapers, Lexington Avenue south of the Grand Central business district has been able to maintain its old-school character of walk-ups and mid-rise apartment houses. While still overwhelmed by congestion, the avenue’s jagged streetwall and modest shops are a refreshing change from the blockbusters of Midtown. The avenue’s resistance to change may be coming to an end with a 31-floor midblock condo at 325 Lexington finished three years ago and a 14-floor rental at 229 Lexington having just topped out.

Smile NEW YORK | 7 West 57th Street | 237 FT | 19 FLOORS

Project: 7 West 57th Street



Quote:
Before the 57th Street supertall boom began, the corridor had relatively few icons. But among those few, Sheldon Solow’s 9 West 57th Street stands as one of the most monumental buildings in all of Midtown, and also one of the most expensive. Now, the developer is building a smaller residential tower next door, at 7 West 57th Street, and the project’s designers, Hill West Architects, have sent along a rendering of what it will soon look like.

As YIMBY reported when new building permits were filed back in January, the structure will rise 19 floors and 237 feet to its rooftop, translating into relatively generous ceiling heights. Within, there will be 32,099 square feet of residential space, divided amongst 16 units, which will average just over 2,000 square feet apiece — a sure sign of condominiums.

There will also be 4,100 square feet of retail space on the first two floors, and mechanicals on the third floor. All of the condominiums will be full-floor units.

Design-wise, the building’s short height means it won’t make any dent in the skyline. However, in terms of its relation to the streetscape, the development will be positive, with an envelope that’s mostly flush with its pre-war neighbor. The retail space will also feature high ceilings, and it appears the mechanical space on the third floor will be illuminated at night, creating an especially attractive display for passersby.

Smile NEW YORK | 76 8th Avenue | 120 FT | 10 FLOORS

Project: 76 8th Avenue



Quote:
Gene Kaufman’s design for the site is quite attractive, with a brick and bronze facade cast against enormous windows. The building will front directly against the sidewalk for the first five floors, enhancing the block’s street-wall, and yielding to a substantial setback up above, complete with a large terrace.

The project’s corners facing the intersection of 14th Street and 8th Avenue will also include another interesting feature. There will be two spots where the glass diverges from the brick and bronze, creating inset terraces within the exterior. These will be fronted by wavy glass, harking to the next-door One Jackson Square, designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox.

The net result will be a handsome new office building that pays its due to the surrounding context, both historical and contemporary.

While this development is going to be a substantial improvement over the previous low-slung occupants, the building’s ten-story envelope is extremely limited relative to the lot’s actual potential. With the A, C, E, and L train’s 14th Street stop just one block away, and many more subway lines running in the blocks further to the east, the location is one of the most transit-accessible in all of Manhattan.

It looks like Gene Kaufman has been possessed by Philip Johnson's ghost, which I'm okay with.

The chimney looking appendage on top detracts a bit but it's Gene Kaufman so something odd and off putting had to surface.

Smile NEW YORK | 2065 + 2067 Ryder Avenue | 12 + 12 FLOORS | 2 X 110 FT

Projects: 2065 Ryer Avenue + 2067 Ryer Avenue




Quote:
Permits have been filed for two new 12-story residential buildings in The Bronx’s Fordham Heights neighborhood. Manhattan-based UA Builders Group is developing the site, located at 2065 and 2067 Ryer Avenue, and the pair will be among the taller buildings in the area, which is mostly dominated by five and six-story apartment blocks. The site is four blocks from the Tremont Ave. and 182-183rd Street Subway Stations for the B and D trains.

The combined structures, rising to heights just over 110 feet, will yield nearly 90,000 square feet for residential use, creating 134 units.
The development will have an average 670 square feet per apartment, which means rentals are likely. Amenities include a laundry room and recreation space for tenants. The first floors will house one apartment each, while rest of the buildings will contain 6 units per floor.

Mt. Vernon-based Badaly Architect will be responsible for the design.
