Smile NEW YORK | 400 Park Ave South l 476 FT / 145 M l 42 FLOORS

400 Park Ave South
476 Ft / 145 M
39 Floors
Christian Portzamparc and Gary Handel














Christian Portzamparc and Gary Handel are proposing this 476 ft tower at the south west corner of east 28th st and Park Ave. They have also responsible for the very popular LVMH tower on 57th street. The site is currently a parking lot that is operating. The tower will sit on top of the 28th st stop on the 6 train and has a subway entrance included in the design.

This is an older proposal but everytime i think its dead, something will come out that negates that. fingers crossed.

Park Avenue South's Fortress of Glassitude Actually Happening?Thursday, June 3, 2010, by Joey





The totally bonkers 40-story apartment tower planned at 400 Park Avenue South has been kicking around since the first half of the last decade, and in recent years has been tossed onto the pile of fantastical renderings that will never see the light of day. That was then! Now New York is enmeshed in the biggest Christian invasion since the Crusades, and French starchitect Christian de Portzamparc's glassy giant might actually have a pulse. (C-deP also has Carnegie 57 and Riverside Center on the boards.)

The site is a parking lot at 28th Street and the adjacent eight-story building at 396 Park Avenue South. Developers Albert and Roy Kalimian bought up mucho air rights along Madison Avenue to set the stage for the 436-unit building (which would also have retail and a new 6 train entrance) before the project went into hibernation. Now the parking lot is closed and a demolition permit has been approved for 396 Park Ave. South. There's oodles more evidence that the Fortress of Glassitude (working title; we're open to suggestions!) is on the way.

Such as this stuff. >>
A Curbed tipster dropped by the site and did a bit of snooping:

Spoke to a Owner Rep at the location (wouldn't give his name) says existing 8 story building to be fully demolished by late fall. New Residential Development to be built in its place. Parking lot by 28th Street is closed (Sign says it will reopen in December, but owner rep says new building to be entire block).
Of course a cheaper, non-Frenchie building might be the new plan, but interestingly the original building permit—filed in 2005 by architect-of-record Handel Architects—was disapproved only this past October, indicating fresh filing action (and maybe some imminent fine-tuning). A Wired New York contributor also noticed that 400 Park Avenue South, which has been on Portzamparc's website forever, now mentions a 2010 start and a 2012 completion. Kaboom! With the Gansevoort Park hotel opening one block up, this stretch of Park Avenue South is getting interesting in a hurry. Anyone else got intel?

Excellent, though from the looks of the article doesn't appear we'll get a building based on the renderings. Still, any new development is better than what is currently there. I remember there was a similar proposal on the corner of 8th Avenue and 31st street, across from both Madison Square Garden and the Farley Post Office (Future Moynihan site). Any word on that?

I think that Curbed's speculation about a different building is inaccurate. Portzamparc's website shows the same design, and it was updated to state that construction will start in 2010.

Yay "glassitude" lol.

This project is right by me and this site could definitely use a development. That parking lot annoys me every time I get on the 6.

Its all about materials though...the render gives me practically no idea whats going on.

I'm much more excited that a parking lot is going to be demolished. There are a lot of uglier buildings on Park Ave South. We're probably not going to be seeing any building any time soon though. In the meantime, demolition will have to do.

Which...by the way, is starting.

There is a very strong demand for rentals in Manhattan right now. This building will do very well.

Okay so it will look pretty much on its own. And yes that is a pretty neat subway entrance.

The site is going up for auction, and is expected to fetch around $400 a square foot. The good news is that the Christian de Portzamparc design has already been approved so whoever buys the site could still build this.

Two big developers to team up on Park Ave. South
Equity Residential and Toll Brothers near deal to build split-personality condo/apartment tower on site of a parking lot on East 28th Street.


By Amanda Fung
October 13, 2011

Quote:
Equity Residential, along with home builder Toll Brothers Inc., is nearing a deal on a major development site at 400 Park Ave. South, according to sources. There, the partners hope to build a tower that will have rental units in the lower floors and condos above.

The site, a 20,000-square-foot parking lot at 28th Street, is owned by A&R Kalimian Realty, the developer of Upper West Side luxury rental tower The Aire. The developer had received city approval for a 40-story, 435-unit rental tower designed by French starchitect Christian de Portzamparc and Handel Architects, according to published reports. Instead, in May, the developer hired brokerage Studley Inc. to market the site, according to The New York Post, which estimated it could draw bids of well over $400 per square foot.
