Toll Brothers Pays $64M for Residential Development Site
By Al Barbarino
Quote:
It looks like luxury home builder Toll Brothers may have yet another New York City residential development project on the drawing board after scooping up a financially troubled and stalled development site – once dubbed the Oliver – from Alexico Group for $64 million, The Commercial Observer has learned.

The plans for the new acquisition could not immediately be confirmed, as Toll Brothers did not return calls seeking comment, though the company builds luxury homes and condo developments throughout the United States, in addition to New York City and places further upstate.

The site fell within the grasp of the then embattled developer Harry Macklowe in 2011, who along with Douglas Elliman Chairman Howard Lorber planned to build a residential tower on the site, according to an article that appeared in Crain’s in March 2011.


Toll Brothers Picks Up Midtown East Residential Site for $64M

We have been watching the 150,000-square-foot site at 953-961 First Avenue for several years, patiently waiting for the hole in the ground to actually become something. Alexico Group tried to build a 161 luxury rental building there, but the developer defaulted on loans and the site went into foreclosure. Now the site is once again on the path toward residential development, but from a different developer. The Commercial Observer reports that Toll Brothers bought the stalled site for $64 million.
New York keeps on booming!

Is that 150,000 square feet the site foot print or the buildable air rights? It looks like it's a 10,000 square foot site with 15 FAR, for 150,000 square feet.

Yes, but Toll Brothers also reported they're buying air rights from adjacent buildings, so we don't really know the building size.

I hope we get something relatively tall and skinny, to move the skyline northwards up the avenue. Hopefully at least 500-600 ft.

Nice to hear about the potential for more air rights. This area's getting some decent activity with Two Sutton and 10 UN, now if we could only get the Con Ed/Solow sight going...

Toll Brothers psyched about new Manhattan developments

By REW Staff
January 23, 2013

Quote:
Toll Brothers said this week the company is “very excited” about plans for its two newest Manhattan buildings.

The company purchased two new development sites in Manhattan. The first is located at 953-961
First Avenue, between 52nd and 53rd Streets, in the Midtown East area, and the second is located at 82 King Street, between Hudson and Varick Streets, in SoHo.

Toll Brothers plans to building luxury condominium residences and retail space at both sites.

Douglas C. Yearley, Jr., chief executive officer, said: “We are very excited to have purchased such prominent sites. This will mark our 7th and 8th Manhattan buildings and our 22nd and 23rd in the metro New York City urban area.

There are three new Toll Brothers City Living projects slated to open for sale in Manhattan this year and one new project in Brooklyn, including a 21-story, 81-unit LEED certified building in Gramercy on the corner of 3rd Avenue and 22nd Street called 160 East 22nd; a 40-story, 99-unit glass tower, designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Christian de Portzamparc, on the corner of Park Avenue South and 28th Street called 400 Park Avenue South; an 11-unit boutique building, with family-sized floorplans ranging from 2,200 to 7,000 s/f, in Carnegie Hill; and an eco-friendly hotel and condominium community being developed in partnership with Starwood Capital Group, called Pierhouse, adjacent to Pier 1 in Brooklyn Bridge Park.

The new First Avenue site, which already has a poured foundation, is 175,000 s/f and comes with approved plans for a residential tower.

Further downtown, on the west side, the King Street site lends itself to “an exciting lifestyle, offering easy access to the world-renowned boutiques, cafes, and restaurantsˮ that surround it.

New building on King St too. Should be interesting to see what they come up with design wise at both sites.

I like it. It has a McGraw-Hill Building vibe to it. Hopefully the brick work is decent.

Midtown East’s The Sutton by Toll Brothers City Living has pushed out a new teaser site. http://www.thesuttonnyc.com/?cmpid=SGo65

Located at 959 First Avenue off East 53rd Street, the building will offer studio to four-bedroom condominiums. Sales are scheduled to start in early 2015. The 113 “modern vintage” residences will be priced from approximately $850,000 to more than $6 million, according to the official site.

The condo offering plan was accepted in December 2014, with a current total price of $271.6 million.

Curbed gives a little history on the site: Back in 2010, the Alexico Group proposed a 161-unit luxury rental project, with plans for the first rooftop movie screening facility in the city. The developer ran into money troubles, the parcel went into foreclosure and Toll Brothers picked up the land for $64 million in 2013.

Permits were filed November 2013 for a new 30-story building with 187,558 square feet of residential space and 9,569 square feet of retail. The architect of record is Goldstein, Hill & West. Amenities will include a courtyard, lounge, bike storage and children’s playroom, according to the Schedule A filing.

The building was about halfway to its final 333-foot height in late October, according to NY YIMBY.

The development is scheduled for completion in 2016.

Respects the streetwall. No vast concrete exposures. Cool gridded windows. Am I dreaming or did an architect actually refrain from taking a giant steaming dump on the far east fifties.

Agreed, nicely integrated into the surrounding environment. Makes a statement while being respectful of the neighborhood; hopefully other will follow this excellent design.

First Look At Toll Brothers' Soon-to-Launch East Side Tower

Monday, February 2, 2015
Jessica Dailey

Quote:
The Midtown East condo tower at 959 First Avenue near East 53rd Street has flown under the radar since developer Toll Brothers picked up the formerly stalled site in January 2013, but it's now on the verge of launching sales.

The design team from Incorporated Architecture & Design shared dozens of new renderings of the 30-story tower, showing the condo interiors and amenity spaces, all of which look incredibly typical for a new condo development. The Sutton, as the tower is now known, will hold 114 units, ranging from one- to four-bedrooms, with prices ranging from $850,000 to more than $6 million.

Permits filed with the Department of Buildings indicate that the top three levels will hold a triplex and duplex penthouse.
