    Default 315 East 46th Street - Alexander Plaza - by Sydness Architects

    I can't find a forum for this condo, is it going up?? is work happening on it ?

    does the developer have any other projects aside from the alexander at 250 east 49th?\\

    the website is alexanderplazany.com

    also I noticed they are suing the same sales office as the other alexander project, what's up with that?

    You're right, there isn't a specific thread for this project. The discussion is scattered across several other threads because it's a relatively small project.

    It's currently under construction as you can see from the photos I took of the site back in October here. I'm sure it has risen higher since then.

    Anyone seen this in person? The renderings make it look great.
    Place 57 also had nice renderings but turned out kind of blah.

    Yeah, I have. The project has come to a screeching halt. All the construction equipment were removed.

    Site was completely empty and quiet. Looked almost like it was abandoned.

    This was taken just last month, 3/8/2009...





    ...compared with one taken last Fall...

    ...And earlier this month, the UAE Government bought a stalled development project for US$44.7 million (Dh164.1m) at 313-317 East 46th Street. An embassy spokesman said he could not yet divulge information about the Government’s plans for the building. The site is located near the UN headquarters....

    Sydness Architects still have this project on their website.

    No new activity at DOB since 5th Amendment to NB Application @ 2/27/2009.

    Hopefully the purchase of the site by Aabar Investment / Abu Dhabi Government will get this one moving.

    Given the prior progress it seems that the design will remain pretty much the same.

    A permit was filed last year by GOV'T OF THE UNTED ARAB EMIRATES to demolish the structure to grade. So I guess they're ditching Sydness' design. It's a rather short block, so with some development rights transfers this could get a little taller.
