Its still in the pipeline. A stale proposal. With the success of other developments by Catsimatidis, this is sure to follow. Most likely not in its original form though.

Like this project, many usually stay dormant for years until either the land is sold to another developer or it waits so long that the design changes, usually downscaled but sometimes we get lucky.

New York/ 620 Fulton St/ FT/ 12 Floors

Brooklyn Health Center

April 02, 2015
James Gardner

Quote:
In the heart of the Brooklyn Cultural District, a mixed-use commercial building is set to rise. The groundbreaking ceremony was held last month, with Mayor Bill De Blasio in attendance, for the new home of the Brooklyn Health Center, which serves the city’s hotel workers union and will occupy five floors of the building at 620 Fulton Street.

That prospect, though worthy, probably doesn’t sound all that exciting, because it isn’t, and the building matches one’s expectations. It was designed by the firm of Francis Cauffman, whose serviceable institutional structures have been boring the good people of Philadelphia since the 1950s. Now, apparently, it is our turn here in New York.

The new 12-story building at 620 Fulton can best be described as deconstructivist, in the sense that it embraces asymmetry both in its massing and in the treatment of its surfaces. But that stab at being contemporary, rather than showing how up-to-date this inveterate firm can be, serves only to reveal to us how mainstream the once radical style of deconstructivism has now become.

Gussying up a curtain-wall with flange-like appendages was old a decade ago– even then it didn’t make much visual or thematic sense. And yet there it is on the surface of the soon-to-be Brooklyn Health Center, as though the architects spontaneously thought it up. A complicated interplay of layers, variously treated, floats across the somewhat squat massing of the building, which is hardly endowed with additional interest through the inclusion of one setback on the fifth floor and another at the top. One entire side of the building, which is scheduled for completion in 2016, will be left flat and windowless and is to be adorned by a massive mural.

To date, the firm of Francis Cauffman has worked exclusively on institutional projects, including the Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, N.J., the GlaxoSmithKline office at the Philadelphia Navy Yard, and the Institute Hall at the Rochester Institute of Technology. All are different from each other in form and conception. But, alas, all are ultimately the same: institutional buildings that have assimilated some stalled modernist tricks of light and spatial flow, but that, from a formal perspective, have little to recommend them beyond their dazzling adequacy.

Smile NEW YORK | 319 Schermerhorn Street | FT | 21 FLOORS

Project: 319 Schermerhorn Street



Quote:
Real estate firm Adam America has purchased a downtown Brooklyn residential development site, where the firm plans to erect a 21-story condo.

The company, which has been an active buyer in the borough in recent months, acquired 319 Schermerhorn St., an empty lot on the border of Boerum Hill and downtown Brooklyn, from SC Nevins for an undisclosed price. Adam America, in partnership with the Naveh Shuster Group, plans to construct an 87,445-square-foot condo tower on the site.

In a statement, Dvir Cohen Hoshen, co-founder of Adam America, said the firm was drawn to the site in part because of its proximity to Barclays Center, which he said has strengthened the area’s retail and residential markets.

"This couldn't be a more prime location for high-end condos and first-rate retail space," Mr. Hoshen said.

Several sources said the firm likely paid more than $30 million for the parcel as values for development sites in downtown Brooklyn have risen into the mid-$300 per square foot.

SC Nevins had secured building permits before selling the parcel, according to Ofer Cohen, a broker with TerraCRG who handled the sale. Mr. Cohen wouldn't disclose the purchase price, but said the building permits increased the land's value because Adam America will be able to break ground on the project immediately rather than have to wait for months to get the necessary construction approvals from the city's Department of Buildings.

"The project is shovel-ready, which gives the buyer the best chance to capture the momentum in this neighborhood and get in while the market is hot," Mr. Cohen said.

All of them are in the records, the only one I don't have is "The Accolade" but thats because it was completed in late 2013. But I'll add it to the mid rise thread.

I try to avoid adding projects that have been complete unless they recently finished within a 2 to 3 month timespan from the time of a post, but I'll add that one only because its a cool mid rise.

Thanks for asking though. Your doing as great job and also keeping by the format with the titles and so on.

Smile NEW YORK | 2183 Third Avenue | 120 FT | 12 FLOORS

Project: 2183 Third Avenue





Quote:
Construction on a new rental building at 2183 Third Avenue in East Harlem is under way, and 6sqft has obtained renderings of the mixed-use project. The 12-story, 64,000-square-foot building will have 59 units, plus 20,000 square feet of retail space and a medical facility on the ground floor. The site is being developed by Sharon Kahen and Haim Levi, who bought the site (plus neighboring air rights) in 2013 for $3.8 million. The architect is listed as boxy extraordinaire Gerald J. Caliendo.

Smile NEW YORK | 2 Pike Street | FT | 13 FLOORS

Project: 2 Pike Street



Quote:
Another Manhattan gas station has bitten the dust.

A former ExxonMobil site at 2 Pike St. in Chinatown has sold to a developer with plans to build an office building, the Daily News has learned.

Developer Shing Wah Yeung of Yeung Real Estate Development paid $18.75 million for the development site, on the corner of Pike St. and E. Broadway.

Commercial brokerage CBRE represented Exxon in the deal.

Yeung said he’ll raze the site this summer and hopes to build a 13-story, 70,000-square-foot tower with office condos, ground-floor retail, underground parking, a restaurant and a community space. The building, designed by Studio C Architects, would be completed by 2017.

Office condos, which are purchased rather than rented, are not as common as they once were but remain popular in Chinatown, since Asian culture favors ownership, Yeung said.

^ That's great news. That empty gas station has been a fenced-up eyesore for many years. They'll have to do remediation on it though.

New York/ 426-432 EAST 58TH STREET/ 900 FT/ FL

If somebody wants to create a new thread in the proposed section

Luxury Mega-Tower For Sutton Place

DANIEL FITZSIMMONS
APR 7, 2015

Quote:
Although plans have yet to be filed for the site, it seems set that a 900-foot tower will rise on East 58th Street between First Avenue and Sutton Place, and now there's a first look at what may come. The tower was announced in late March by developer The Bauhouse Group, who assembled a few contiguous lots on the block in January. Bauhouse not only announced the tower that will become the second-tallest in the neighborhood—only behind 432 Park Avenue—but also claimed Lord Norman Foster as architect. Although the first look at the rendering in NYPress is exciting, it's accompanied by no mention of the prolific architect.

What it does mention is that the tower will have about 95 apartments and that it will create 58,000-square-feet of inclusionary housing, either on or off site. If the development site sells, as it seems poised to do, the tower may grow even taller. The site is located in a zoning district where no height restrictions exist; additional air rights could help it rise even taller.

Smile NEW YORK | 452 Rodney Street | FT | FLOORS (Potential Highrise)

Project: 452 Rodney Street

Quote:
The Chetrit Group is looking to construct a 160,000-square-foot building in Williamsburg, according to permits filed with the city today.

The five-story property, located at 452 Rodney Street, will rise right next to Chetrit’s 14-story hotel project at 500 Metropolitan Avenue. That property will hold roughly 89,000 square feet of residential space and 56,584 square feet of commercial space.

Filings indicate that the new building will have 14 residential units divided among more than 65,300 square feet, indicating large-sized units. The remainder — and largest part — of the building will be devoted to commercial space.

A representative from Chetrit could not immediately be reached.
Kunicki Bernstein Architects is serving as the architect of record, the filings show.

Construction Update: Rental Towers at St.John The Divine





Quote:
Concrete superstructure continues to rise at the residential towers adjacent to the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. The towers, designed by Handel Architects, have reached the 12th story on the west tower and the 15th story on the east tower, its final floor. Each structure features an exposed concrete structure with shaped concrete piers at the primary façade along West 113th Street. These piers reference the buttresses of the cathedral directly behind and animate the façade with their pattern of sloping from floor to floor. Windows with black metal frames will be inset between the concrete piers and have begun installation on the east tower at the second floor. When completed, the two towers will bring 428 residential rental units to the Morningside Heights neighborhood and a revenue stream to the church from the lease of the land.

Some general news. This site has the potential for a high rise or multiple towers. Will reference this post in the future if something does come, and we see renderings and so on. First step is for the lot to get a buyer, and then we will see depending if they go commercial, residential or under pressure go for a park which is unlikely in this market:

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

Potential Purchase: East River at North 11th Street

Quote:
Developers, however, saw an opportunity to build something transformative at the 11-acre property on the East River at North 11th Street, while locals saw a park promised to them a decade ago. Those competing visions have already produced conflict over the last major parcel in one of the city's most desirable neighborhoods.

The owner of the site, Norman Brodsky, believes his land could fetch $500 million on the open market were it already zoned for residential. At the very least, it could sell in the tens of millions as currently zoned for about 600,000 square feet of commercial space. But the renewed interest in the park has complicated matters and put off potential buyers.

Smile NEW YORK | 212 Fifth Avenue | 264 FT | 20 FLOORS (Conversion)

Project: 212 Fifth Avenue (Conversion to residential)



Quote:
The Landmarks Preservation Commission has approved the residential conversion of 212 Fifth Avenue. The commission on Tuesday approved proposed changes to the 24-story, 220,000-square-foot office building, which will be redeveloped by Thor Equities, Madison Equities and Building & Lang Technology (BLT). The three entities own the property through a partnership, having purchased it from Extell Development for $260 million earlier this year, as The Real Deal reported. The companies are financing the work through a $275 million construction loan from Midtown-based iStar Financial. The redevelopment will include restoration work and the enlargement of the penthouse unit, according to New York YIMBY. Madison’s Robert Gladstone said the company is hoping to capitalize on the building’s 212 address in the residential market, he told the New York Daily News in February.

Quote:

The former site of the proposed “Star Tower” back in 2008 had been vacant for many years before the lot sold for a princely sum in 2014.2 A new round of permits were approved on the site in December, 20143 and just recently, work started on the site. As you can see in the photos below, a construction vehicle was performing excavation on the site when we stopped by last week.

Smile NEW YORK | 287 Park Avenue South | 233 FT | 18 FLOORS (Conversion and height bump)

Project: 287 Park Avenue South (Conversion to Condos and a height bump)



Quote:
Last fall, Chinese developer Cheerland Investments paid a whopping $129 million for the United Charities office building at 287 Park Avenue South, a nine-story Renaissance Revival structure built in 1892. An insider told the Wall Street Journal that it would be converted to condos, and earlier this week, permits were filed for a residential conversion that would add nine stories to the top.

The building will expand from nine stories to 18, adding 100 feet to its height and reaching 233 feet up into the air. It will also gain an extra 27,000 square feet of space, increasing the floor area to 114,558 square feet. Forty condos will be spread across 105,000 square feet of residential space, for an average unit size of 2,640 square feet.

Apartments will begin on the second floor, which will have three units, followed by four apartments per floor on levels three through nine, and two duplexes with terraces and a single-floor pad on the 10th and 11th floors. Finally, the top six floors will house one large condo per floor.

The conversion will preserve the building’s existing 8,684 square feet of ground floor retail, which will become a restaurant, per the Schedule A filing. Some fancy amenities will be added as well, including a steam room, pool, gym, play room, library and lounge.
