Harry Macklowe is one parcel closer to building his $1B Midtown office tower
Developer has closed on the purchase of 5 East 51st Street for $44M


By Eddie Small
March 11, 2019


Quote:
Harry Macklowe’s dream of a building one more soaring skyscraper in Midtown picked up a bit of steam this week.

The octogenarian developer on Monday closed on the purchase of a six-story rental building at 5 East 51st Street from Noam Management for $44 million, according to property records. His company Macklowe Properties funded the deal with a roughly $124 million mortgage from Fortress Investment Group.
Quote:
Macklowe, who was married last week following a bitter divorce that split his fortune down the middle, has been stitching together an assemblage for the site for years. He already owns 12 East 52nd Street, for which he paid $32 million, and 4 East 52nd Street.

The assemblage is central to Macklowe’s vision for a tall and skinny mid-block office building between East 51st and East 52nd Streets known as “Tower Fifth.” It would stand about 1,500 feet tall, span 1 million square feet and likely cost upwards of $1 billion. He will need to transfer hundreds of thousands of square feet of development rights from St. Patrick’s Cathedral to build the project, which is likely to cost tens of millions of dollars. To transfer air rights, Macklowe will have to go through the city’s ULURP public review process.

If built, the tower would rise even higher than Macklowe’s luxury condo project at 432 Park Avenue, which stands about 1,400 feet tall. It would face direct competition from new-development office buildings including SL Green Realty’s One Vanderbilt, Related Companies’ Hudson Yards complex, the World Trade Center and Tishman Speyer’s the Spiral.

Macklowe moves closer to building Midtown tower with $44M deal


By Steve Cuozzo
March 11, 2019


Quote:
Harry Macklowe took another step toward building a supertall office tower across from St. Patrick’s Cathedral and between East 51st and 52nd streets. He quietly closed this week on a $44 million purchase of four-story 5 E. 51st St., according to city Finance Department records.

But ecstatically remarried Macklowe still has a long way to go with the multibillion-dollar project. His assemblage isn’t complete yet; air rights purchases must be negotiated; and the 1,551-foot-tall skyscraper would need several, which would face certain contested city approvals, including from the Landmarks Preservation Commission (because it brushes shoulders with several designated landmarks).

Besides securing air rights, what other parcels need to be acquired for this project?

He has 12 and 14 East 52nd and 5 East 51st Street. The other properties are in the process of assemblage.

We'll see what happens as the design is refined more.

I surely hope this happens within the next two years. Building it on-spec would be ideal.

That would be awesome,

Throw some vanity height in there and make it one of the top 5-10 tallest buildings on earth

Not sure this is accurate...

Not one to mess around, Macklowe is already filing for demo...(5 East 51st Street)

DEMOLITION OF 6 STORY BUILDINGS AS PER PLANS.



http://daytoninmanhattan.blogspot.co...ouse-no-5.html

Quote:
NYC’s next office supertower is inching forward as the first demolition permit has been filed at 5 East 51st Street for 'Tower Fifth,' a planned 96-floor, 1,556-feet-tall office tower to become the tallest building in the city by roof height.

The building for which demolition permits were filed for yesterday is the 1903 John Stevens Melcher house, finished when the area was Manhattan's epicenter of mansions and social clubs. Upon Midtown's steady infiltration of commerce, in 1919 the home became a small private hospital. Macklowe closed on the building for $44M last month.

Demo was also filed for these 2 buildings on the north side, 12 and 14 East 52nd Street. So Macklowe wants to clear this site, regardless of whatever is approved.

I'm assuming the boxy rendering is merely a proposal and not a final design draft? *Crossing fingers for something juicier*

I think that we've seen the final design. It's on the architect's website.

The design is as proposed...

https://www.gensler.com/projects/tower-fifth


Quote:
Located just north of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, east of Fifth Avenue between 51st and 52nd Streets, Tower Fifth will rank as the second tallest building not only in New York, but in the Western Hemisphere.

Climbing 1,556 feet above Manhattan, the 1.3-million-gross-square-foot tower creates a new paradigm for how a supertall structure meets the street and interacts with its neighbors. Its ground floor glass-enclosed public galleria spans the entire block, framing views of St. Patrick’s Cathedral while extending the civic realm into the building footprint, leading visitors to shops, a food hall, and an auditorium.

At the top of the tower, the city’s highest observatory grants unprecedented views and features an array of unique experiential, cultural, and entertainment experiences within a public observatory.

The office floors feature 960,000 square feet of tenant space and amenities focused on wellness.

Tower Fifth is wrapped in an innovative, energy-efficient Closed Cavity Facade system which reduces solar heat gain by more than 70%. It will be the first deployment of this type of system in North America.

As with any tower, there can still be further refinement to the design as construction nears and progresses.

Macklowe is a thug and a barbarian.

If this design is for real, he's giving us all a kick in the teeth.

Pardon my French, but what the hell is this thing?

It would be a scar on the skyline if built.

Right, height isn't everything.

I dig the top part from an engineering perspective but man this could look better. There are some gorgeous 500 meter buildings in the world. Of course NY builds a (near) 500 meter building but it looks like a pile of garbage, hopefully it grows on me
