    Much better as a hotel, I think, with as much original detailing as possible preserved. The roof has so much more potential with a hotel than an office building.


    70 Photos Inside Chelsea's Former Prison Before It's Converted

    From YMCA housing for sailors to a correctional facility for women to shiny new offices for a tech company? It could happen. Developers are currently vying for the opportunity to convert the Bayview Correctional Facility on West 20th Street and Eleventh Avenue into a commercial development, which would be the third life for the 1931 brick building. Originally built as one eight-story building, the structure's first use was as YMCA housing for merchant sailors. An adjacent six-story annex was built in 1951, and in 1974, the buildings were transferred to the Department of Correctional Services. Up until Hurricane Sandy, Bayview functioned as a medium security women's prison, housing up to 323 prisoners. Today, the facility sits empty, and while there are some stand-out spaces—like the open rooftop sports courts and the Art Deco chapel—whichever developer wins the bid certainly has a lot of work to do to turn the sterile hallways and tiny rooms into a place fit for office workers or the community.


    The facility faces the corner of West 20th Street and Eleventh Avenue.


    The exterior is largely unchanged, and much of the original Art Deco ornamentation remains like these painted, sea-themed crests.






    The chapel light fixtures and ornamentation are original to the space.


    The stained-glass windows and mural behind the alter depict seafaring scenes.


    Bayview is not landmarked, but the RFP does ask developers to address preservation plans for the chapel.








    What used to be an olympic-size swimming pool when the building was a YMCA was turned into storage by the prison.

    The outdoor areas are nice, at least.


    Tour Robert A.M. Stern's High Line Rentals at Abington House

    July 10, 2014, by Hana R. Alberts


    All photos by Will Femia.

    Limestone-loving starchitect Robert A.M. Stern's latest project—312 rental apartments right along the High Line between 29th and 30th streets—launched in April, and it's already more than 60 percent leased. What sets Abington House, developed by Related, apart from the many bajillion residential buildings on the rise around the High Line is 1) it's not condos, so attracts a different kind of resident and 2) the 30,000 square feet of amenity spaces, from a lounge and "sanctuary room" to an Equinox-designed gym to multiple communal entertaining and meeting spaces to several outdoor terraces. Right now, according to StreetEasy, studios are available from $3,675, one-bedrooms from $4,350, and two-bedrooms from $7,495.

    Its location is at the crux of many new developments: most prominently, the first Hudson Yards tower is rising right across the street. Also, the High Line currently ends at 30th Street, but not for long—the final section, which will wind west to 12th Avenue and then north to 34th Street before curving back east, opens in the fall.

    Yes, the outdoor spaces along W 29th are a terrific addition.

    But someone really needs to put an end to the gas-powered horizontal-slot "fireplaces" that are now ubiquitous in these new-ish NYC rental developments (just what you want to see when you come home on a humid July afternoon ) ...

    Samsung leases entire Meatpacking building

    Facebook and Google had been mulling full-building lease in Thor, Taconic property

    THE REAL DEAL
    July 15, 2014



    837 Washington Street and a Samsung store in London

    Electronics giant Samsung has signed for all 55,000 square feet of a six-story Meatpacking District building developed by Thor Equities and Taconic Investment Partners.

    The property at 837 Washington Street, between Little West 12th and 13th streets, would house a marketing center and customer services space. Facebook, Google and Ferrari were also eyeing a full-building lease.

    Thor owns an 80 percent stake in the building, which has a two-story brick façade and four-story glass and steel section. The development includes more than 7,000 square feet of outdoor space on the second and third floors.

    “While the building is special inside, this is a special neighborhood and you want to capture the neighborhood outside,” Joseph Sitt of Thor told the Wall Street Journal. [WSJ]Mark Maurer

    This is a great building. I look for to the new Gang tower and the one on Lrince Lumber's site.

    Similar to the building that replaced Doctors Hospital up on East End Ave. Not bad.

    Next section of the high line opens 9/21. Sad to miss it.
