    Gotham West - 1/12/2014

    From Tenth:



    The new elementary school



    Across 44th St. they're refurbishing a warehouse building for this high school:



    Further west on 44th



    Looking up on Eleventh:





    The entire ground floor retail space on Eleventh is taken up by the Gotham West Market, comprised by various restaurants, cafe and grocer. It appears to be very popular already as it was packed with people.





    The 45th St side

    All in all, while not the greatest of architecture, it is a good development that took out a huge surface parking lot that was a huge black hole in the area and replaced with very much needed apartments, school and retail.

    I think it's very decent, but that crappy gas station must go.

    This proposed development has Clinton Housing Development Partnering with
    Taconic/Ritterman,for a trio of buildings- two of which have 100% affordable housing.

    A joint venture between Clinton Housing Development Company (CHDC) with Taconic Investment Partners and Ritterman Capital is combining new construction and renovation for three buildings: a 14-story building with 80 percent market rate rentals (324 units) and 20 percent (81 units) at affordable housing rates as well as a 12-story building with 100 percent (103 units) at affordable housing rates ó and then, a renovated five-story building (called Captain Post) with 100 percent (22 units) at affordable rates. This proposal, the culmination of nearly 40 years of work in the Clinton Urban Renewal Area (CURA), also represents about three years of work with Taconic/Ritterman to build hundreds of affordable housing units on this site, said Joe Restuccia, CHDCís executive director. The pet-friendly project also includes three community gardens, a rooftop open space and a childrenís play area. Taconic/Rittermanís new building on West 52nd Street will have a graduated-step-like design to prevent shadowing on the existing DeWitt Clinton Park. - See more at: http://chelseanow.com/2014/01/cb4-ge....2xaCVjkf.dpuf

    I'm confused. It mentions 3 buildings with the tallest at 14 stories but in the model above (and the rendering in the previous page) the stepped building is 20+ stories.

    ^That's because the only thing mentioned in either the article or the video about that building is:

    "Taconic/Ritterman's new building on west 52nd Street will have a graduated -step-like design to prevent shadowing on the existing Dewitt Clinton Park"

    They tap dance around it, and it's height by concentrating on all the affordable housing that's coming with the other developments in the area.
    (the #1 thing on CB4's agenda is affordable housing).

    I'm sure this: "The developers are requesting a number of zoning changes. However CB4 is in full support"
    Has something to do with the stepped buildings height (something CB4 is usually willing to allow/support, in exchange for more affordable housing)
    It also looks like they may have gotten a concession to have "reasonably priced supermarket- NOT a coop market, not a Whole Foods..."
    put in on the ground floor of the the stepped building as well. (mostly conjecture by me)

    However, if you want any more real info, The new Chair for CB4 Christine Berthet is my upstairs neighbor - I could always ask her next time we pass.

    Going back to Gotham West, I;m really curious what the affordable housing on top of the amtrak tracks is like. Do you hear/feel the trains passing underneath?

    Developer plans condos above Hellís Kitchen post office

    January 24, 2014 01:35PM



    Rendering of 320-322 West 52nd Street

    Upper West Side-based developer OasesRE wants to build 45 condominium units on top of a post office in Hellís Kitchen.

    The three-story building at 320-322 West 52nd Street, between Eighth and Ninth avenues, would gain an extra two floors for the project, which the developer has dubbed Radio City Lofts. The residential component would cover 42,500 square feet, while the post office would continue to operate down below.

    OasesRE hired Little Italy-based architects Architecture Outfit and Financial District-based Gary H. Silver Architects to handle design, according to BuzzBuzzHome. The developer is also seeking air rights, but it was not immediately clear from whom.

    Elsewhere in Hellís Kitchen, the Clinton Housing Development Corporation, along with developers Taconic Investment Partners and Ritterman Capital, are planning 210 units of affordable housing along West 52nd and West 53rd streets from 10th to 11th avenues, as previously reported.

    That BuzzBuzzHome link link offers a fairly comprehensive preview of the project. This rooftop addition is not bad looking at all: a very feasible project both financially and aesthetically. Rooftop additions are the final frontier for real estate development in NYC; there are many more projects like this coming our way - like it, or not.......

    As and aside comment: don't use that post office - at least based one of these 'funny' YELP comments.
    YELP excerpt - “Doesn’t get worse than this place. Maybe in Haiti or Tijuana or something… The employees are slower than sloths. I moved a month and a half ago and still haven’t received a SINGLe piece of forwarded mail. Btw I moved DOWN THE STREET.”

    really surprised to hear about this project. Building condos on top of federal property in Hells Kitchen? Interesting. Hopefully they will give the entire building a makeover or some of the money will be used to upgrade the mail facility.

    I just hope they won't look like the apartments above the Haredi-owned electronics shop at 34th and 9th.

    Neighbors of Radio City post office file against condo topper

    Residents claim Hell's Kitchen expansion will drive traffic up, cut down on direct sunlight
    February 13, 2014 01:15PM



    Rendering of 320 West 52nd Street

    Hell’s Kitchen residents are in an uproar over a developer’s proposal to build two floors of luxury condominiums on top of the Radio City post office.

    The city approved the 48-unit plan by OasesRE at the end of 2013, which would help out the cash-strapped United States Postal Service at 320-322 West 52nd Street. The new condos would add 22,000 square feet to the existing building, and the post office would still operate down below. But some angry neighbors say the project “violates the spirit” of local zoning laws and have filed to stop the project, according to DNAInfo.

    Technically, the as-of-right project only adds 20 feet to the building, bringing the total height to 66 feet, the maximum allowed by the Special Clinton District’s zoning laws. But residents are worried about an influx of traffic and the loss of direct sunlight to their apartments. [DNAInfo]Angela Hunt

    Ah, the classic outrageous traffic claim. Because 48 new apartments is sure to generate thousands of extra car trips a day in NYC.

    UPDATE: Stella Tower by JDS Development and Property Markets Group

    By: Joyce Chen


    Construction signage is up at Stella Tower at 425 West 50th Street in Hellís Kitchen.

    JDS Development and Property Markets Group are partnering on the 51-unit conversion of a Verizon building. The development will offer one- to three-bedroom condominiums priced from approximately $2 million to more than $10 million, according to the teaser site.

    First designed in 1927 by Ralph Walker, the property will be reimagined by Cetra/Ruddy. The developers paid about $20 million for 101,000 square feet of the building in 2011, The Real Deal reported; the apartments will be on the 10th through 17th floors.

    Douglas Elliman is marketing the property.

    Can you imagine walking up to someone in this neighborhood in 1988 and suggesting that a single apartment might cost $2m, let alone an entire building here?
