    They're re-doing the entire street level facade of the Milford Plaza, and looks like they're doing some nice restoration work of old details that were hidden away.

    The Milford Plaza building should be landmarked.

    The bed bugs agree.

    I really believe an observation tower/hotel/entertainment use would work well here. There are stellar views of many major landmarks at +1,000 feet, plus the birds-eye view of Times Square would be incredible.



    Theater Subdistrict zoning continues to prove profitable

    ...Meanwhile, Gary Barnett’s Extell Development has taken over a project that was being assembled by Boston Properties and the Related Companies at 750 Eighth Ave. that was to include an office building over a 406-space garage. In this case, the Boston/Related team had already agreed to purchase TDRs from the Shubert Organization’s Broadhurst Theatre, and was also buying the small building at the northeast corner of 45th Street housing the Frankie & Johnnie’s Steakhouse, which the Shuberts also own. Additionally, the developers had planned to purchase 120,319 square feet of TDRs from the Jacobs, Booth and Broadhurst theaters

    In order to complete the project, Barnett is likely now renegotiating the purchase of these TDRs and the finished development could also be changed from an office tower to become a hotel or residential condos....




    Maybe even some kind of ride at the top. Maybe a bit more exciting than Canton Tower's though.


    And Barnett has expressed interest in observation decks...

    ....Not to be outdone, Gary Barnett, the prolific developer who is building one of the tallest residential skyscrapers in the world, on West 57th Street near Broadway, said that he too has considered getting into the observation-deck business.

    Derek,

    Are you suggesting that this tower can be 1,000'? If do, that would be nice.

    Any news regarding this site? I can't think of another lot like this in such a high traffic area that has yet to be built on. Almost all buildings that stalled after the 2008 financial collapse have since resumed construction except this one. It's great that an arts alliance has temporarily taken up shop though.

    Extell owns it, and plans residential or residential/hotel.

    Given everything Extell has on their plate, I'm not surprised this site isn't being developed at this moment. I would guess something very tall and thin will rise at some point. Would not be surprised if we got a supertall or something similar on this site.

    Just fyi - the assemblage Of tiny little “temporary” booths selling clothes and handbags and accessories - that have been at the SE corner of 46th and 8th - are finally gone. I wonder if that means ground is about to be broken on this building site? Anybody have any updates RE 740 8th ave?
