    I heard that with the Empire State Development Corporation has time restrictions for building must start within 12 mo and finish within 2 yrs after that. So the the new owner will have to use the existing pre-approved plans and that they are for office w/retail on the 1st, 2nd, and LL.

    Default Mta??

    I was walking past this site today and saw a notice taped to the wall about the MTA using eminent domain to use the site as a station for the number 7 train extension. Anyone know anything about this?

    Default Thank you

    Is there any news on this one? I'm tired of walking past this hole in the ground all the time. Do you think ground will be broken before the NYT tower is completed?

    But the trees are starting to pop up over the fence now

    You wouldn't want to see the destruction of a self-sustaining green space in the middle of Times Square...

    Would you

    At the very least, her organization would see a project through to its end and maintain it going forward. Unlike the Milsteains, who should have been fined - if not sued - by the city for failure to commence construction. This empty lot represents a colossal failure of city planning given all else that has been spawned along the West 42nd corridor. And the "New 42nd Street" is really the "AS YET TO BE COMPLETE New 42nd Street" at five years and counting.

    This building should be commercial and it ought to be built spec given that EVERY indicator in the industry points to a growing need and commercial PPSF that are a curse on attracting new businesses to NYC.

    At the moment 42nd Street is almost embarrasing. There are 3 gigantic holes in the ground 8th, 10th and 11th aves. Just sitting vacant in the center of Manhattan and it almost looks like a throw back to the 70s, vacant lots and abandoned bldgs.

    Are all three sites affected by the 7 Subway easements?

    What do you mean by easements?

    We know why the lot on 8th has been languishing. The lot on 11th is Silverstein's, and it had been involved in a dispute over whether the new Javits Convention Hotel should go there. I believe Silverstein's started construction on a new residential there. The 10th avenue site (extending all the way to Dyer) is where a tall residential was supposed to go, but Related was unable to incorporate a Cirque de Soleil theater into it, so they sold the plot of land. Not sure what's happening there, although I do believe that's where one of the new subway stations will go.

    the plot between dyer and 10th is the one that the new 7 would cause delays since a station has to go there. Otherwise, the tracks are deep below 41st street and shouldnt cause too much disruption. Most of these temporary easments will just be a minor distraction.

    Are construction costs delaying building? There are empty boarded up plots on 38th/10th, 44th/10th, boarded up buildings on 9th and 38th (although vague plans were announced recently). And dont forget the closed fenced up gas station on the northwest corner of 42/11th. This will probably be that way for years. Unless something in the market changes drastically that drives costs down, its gonna be slow moving. Downtown is sucking up a lot of local construction resources too.

    One can only pray that whatever is built on this lot will be pleasing to the eye and very tall.
