    Looks to me like all they're doing with that wall is stabilizing the surface (hence the minimal scaffolding that's been erected in front of it). Perhaps it is on the Milliken property and actually part of the building coming down, but it could be adhered to the Spring Mills building in a way that makes it unadvisable to mess about with it.

    I was in NY on June 30, 2010 and was very pleased to see that these dumps have been razed.

    This is now prime open real estate. Any word on how tall they can build here eventually?

    Didn't see anything going on. Now just another cleared boarded up lot.

    Plans here for something new from Hines / Pei Cobb Fried & Partners ...

    Breakthrough at Bryant Park

    NY POST
    Lois Weiss
    February 9, 2011

    Now that a prominent development partner and architects are on board, a key site catty-corner to Bryant Park is moving closer to a resolution.

    The Post has learned that Hines Interests is now working with Pacolet Milliken Enterprises, the owner of 1045 Ave. of the Americas, which takes up a full block front between West 39th and West 40th streets. The now-vacant site previously hosted the headquarters of Milliken & Co. and was recently demolished.

    Additionally, the architecture firm Pei Cobb Freed has now completed conceptual designs that do not need discretionary approvals, the owners advise.

    Richard Webel, president of Pacolet Milliken, said, "Together with Hines Interests, one of the leading real estate development entities, Pacolet Milliken has been working for the last several years to formulate a project that can satisfy the demands of both users and investors for the highest quality office space on this unique site. Offering in excess of 400,000 square feet of rentable area, the project is potentially positioned to be at the leading edge of the next development cycle."

    Paul Amrich of CB Richard Ellis, who may or may not be the agent for the future tower, declined comment through a spokesman.

    In December, the owners of the adjacent and recently landmarked Springs Mills Building, at 104 W. 40th St., sold 65,085 square feet of transferrable air rights to Pacolet Milliken Enterprises for about $12.2 million, or just under $200 a square foot. A spokesman for Savanna Partners, the owner of Springs Mills, declined comment.

    Back in March 2009 we warned you that Milliken was tearing down its former showroom building and planning a new, as-of-right development.

    No matter what is constructed, both the city and the Bryant Park Business Improvement District would be beneficiaries of enhanced payments and an improvement in the landscape.

    Happy to hear Hines is involved, disappointed Pei Cobb Freed was hired they haven't done anything good in decades and even then it was very hit or miss.

    I am elated to see the dumpy buildings razed on this site.

    Here's a rendering from Pacolet Milken Enterprises. Classy design.

    Also look foward to seeing Foster's tower next to the Radiator Building, Adjmi's hotel on that parking lot, Foster's library addition, and whatever happens to the Mid-Manhattan branch on 40th and 5th.

    That's not bad. I like it.

    300 - 400 feet, maybe?

    Nobutaka's hideous 436' Bryant Park Hotel is the tower behind this project in the rendering. This seems to be about the same height. Of course I think the zoning here should've allowed for a slightly larger tower, especially since it is located above a subway station. Either way it's nice infill.

    Nice project! I hope that they build it on spec!

    From today's Journal:

    Developer Unveils Plans for Site Near Bryant Park

    Hines, of Houston, has become the latest developer to join the race to break ground on Manhattan's next office building.

    The firm has unveiled the design of a 28-story tower overlooking Bryant Park. The entrance to the building, at the corner of Sixth Avenue and 40th St., will sit at a northeast angle to maximize park views. The design by Pei Cobb Freed & Partners features a concave hourglass and floating stainless steel disk over the entrance.

    "This project has really been designed in a way that comes directly out of our residential experience, including outdoor spaces and maximizing daylight," says Tommy Craig, senior vice president of Hines, which is a partner with Pacolet Miliken Enterprises Inc.But Hines likely isn't going to move forward until it pre-leases a large chunk of the space and obtains construction financing. There are a half-dozen or so other proposed Manhattan developments that are also in this category.

    Mr. Craig says Hines is optimistic. "Our conviction about the market would be hard to overstate," he says. "We sold 750 Seventh Avenue with very full pricing and that only reinforced our confidence in the market both from prospective equity partners as well as major tenants."
