A guy mentioned elsewhere in the forum that there's a building U/C near the Powell State office building in Harlem. Does anyone know anything about this?

Awesome update SONY. I thought about doing this but there are just so many developments and buildings it's nearly impossible to track. That doesn't even include the Hudson Yards which will have about 12 towers, and the towers that will accompany the Barclays Arena.

Plus 55th and 8th Ave, Gem Tower, 250 E 57th, etc. Really pretty amazing.

I have to say the magnitude of development in the city is overwhelming. Hong Kong and Shanghai may be the only ones that can come close to such a huge wave of construction (though thats debatable when you exclude all the 50 to 60 story concrete apartment slabs built there)

The permits are a bit confusing, but the lot seems to encompass 215-223 w34th.
It will be a seven story hotel.

8 Stone is complete. 5 WTC is on hold; old design won't happen, either. Avalon West Chelsea is breaking ground soon. Gotham West's first tower is complete, I think. 99 Washington should be starting soon, if not already.

The ones that matter:

15 Penn Plaza, Manhattan West (2 towers), Hudson Yards (12 towers), WTC complex, 50 West, 56 Leonard, 99 Church, One 57, GiraSole, 20 TS, Tower Verre, Drake, 225, 1715 Broadway, Int. Gem Tower, 250 West 55th, and East 57th (one with the school). Most of those will be in the 800-1,000+ foot range.

Hong Kong has 0 1,000 footers on the way.
Shanghai has Shanghai Tower and White Magnolia.
NYC has Manhattan West, 2 Hudson Towers, GiraSole, One 57, Tower Verre, Drake, 225, One WTC, Two WTC, Three WTC, and 15 Penn Plaza.

True, Shanghai isn't exactly building a huge number of supertalls. More impressive cities in China are
Shenzhen:
Pingan IFC, Kingkey, Hon Kwok City Center, East Pacific Center, China Resources HQ, Feng Long Center, Huanggang Redevelopment, Shenzhen ITC, Shenzhen WFC.
-nearly as many as NY
Chongqing:
Chongqing WFC, United International, ASE Center, Beibin Lu, Chongqing IFC, Chongqing PYI IC, Financial Street Concord City Tower, Hongyadong Phase 2, Jialing Fanyang, The Wharf IFC, Tianhe Tower, Urban Forest.

Granted, these are rapidly developing cities, not developed(yet) like NY is.

Comparing the size of those Chinese cities' economies to the number of supertalls doesn’t really make any sense though. I'm skeptical if many of those will even be built, or fully. The Chinese property market is massively over-leveraged and on the slide. The hardest hit cities will likely be the ones where all those supertalls are supposedly being built. In my opinion most of those are pure debt. Someone has completely lost control of China's skyscraper boom. When less signficant cities are getting more supertalls than more signficant cities you know something's up.

54-story luxury rental planned for 111 Washington in FiDi
July 15, 2011 12:00PM
By Adam Pincus

The Midtown-based real estate development firm Pink Stone Capital expects to build a high-end residential rental tower with 54 floors at 111 Washington Street, two blocks south of the World Trade Center site in the Financial District.

The approximately 430,000-square-foot high-rise will have about 500 units in a mix of studios and one- and two-bedroom apartments, Meir Milgraum, director of acquisitions for the firm, said. One or two large penthouses may also be includedd, he added.

Pink Stone bought the defaulted $50 million note from New York Community Bank in March. The bank lent parking magnate Gerald Brauser and his company Term-Washington Street Garage the money in 2006 to develop the property.

On July 1, Pink Stone acquired title for the site through a deed in lieu of foreclosure, Milgraum said. Court records show the site includes the property at 105 Washington Street and 111 Washington Street, as well as air rights from four other properties. Milgraum would not disclose the price paid, if any, for the deed. The title transfer has not yet appeared on city property records.

In addition to the apartments, the tower at 111 Washington Street will have two floors of retail with about 30,000 square feet of space.

The firm is interviewing architects and plans to hire one by the end of next week.

"We hope to be in the ground by next summer and complete construction by 2014," Milgraum said.

The company plans to construct a one-story retail site at 105 Washington Street.

Pink Stone is an active note and property buyer over the past year. It bought the note for 174 Nassau Street in Downtown Brooklyn on June 22, which has development rights for approximately 100,000 square feet. In addition, the company is constructing a 73-unit residential building with 21 stories at 3 West 36th Street and a new, 21-story hotel with 108 rooms at 250 Fifth Avenue, at 28th Street.

Pink Stone Capital was founded in 2010 and is led by CEO Richard Ohebshalom, son of Empire Management's Fred Ohebshalom. The firm takes it name from the color associated with breast cancer advocacy, and was named in honor of Richard's high school history teacher, who died of the disease in 1997.

Probably not worth it's own thread but...

Parking Lot Sells For $21 Million

Hotel Is Planned for Midtown Site
AUGUST 15, 2011

BY DAWN WOTAPKA

A Midtown parking lot owned by the same family since around the Civil War just sold for nearly $21 million in the latest sign that demand for development sites is growing.

The buyer, a venture of the Albanese Organization Inc. and the Buccini/Pollin Group Inc., plans to build a hotel with about 300 rooms on the West 37th Street site near Times Square. Construction could start later this year.

The market for city development sites, which took a nosedive immediately after the recession ...

Toronto is right up there too. It's hard to keep track of all the towers under construction as it is, and the proposals just keep on coming.

Vinoly's Superscraper Will Reach 1,300 Feet, Cost $1 Billion

http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2011/1...llion.php#more

Vinoly's Superscraper Will Reach 1,300 Feet, Cost $1 Billion



[Via Wall Street Journal/CIM Group.]

Here now, some real figures for the city's soon-to-be-tallest residential tower, the CIM Group-developed, Rafael Vinoly-designed Drake Hotel-killer in Midtown East. The Wall Street Journal reports that architectural plans reveal a "1,300-foot tall, slender condo and retail complex" with 128 condos that feature 12-foot high ceilings, plus a "5,000 square foot, partially covered, driveway to ensure privacy and amenities like golf training facilities and private dining and screening rooms." Total cost: $1 billion. Completion date: who the hell knows! And hmmm, no mention of that glass cube.

Some previous rumormongering put the number at 1,420 feet, and while we now know that's a bit lofty, the vague rendering in the Journal's piece isn't far off from that WiredNY thread (boxy yet slim, symmetrical square windows down the four facades).
