Thread: Con Ed site on the East River

    I already miss the old station.
    The new buildings MUST be tall. Or I'll be pissed.

    FSM is trembling.

    Fresh from the Post:

    Sheldon Solow has taken over responsibility for the development of the First Avenue sites that he is buying from Con Ed along with the Fisher Brothers, who will continue as investors.

    Tony Fisher had agreed to this plan a few days prior to his tragic death, sources said.

    The project is now going through a public review process to satisfy the Public Service Commission, but will later have to go through the city's entire uniform land-use review as well.

    Solow is well known for his luxury residential rentals and commercial properties, such as the Class A building at 9 W. 57 St.

    Not sure what implications this may carry, wonder what you think about it.

    I can only think of a bad pun.

    That a solow vision cant be a bad thing.

    Officially it is no longer FSM.
    Fisher--Solow--Morgan Stanley.
    Solow is the only partner remaining.

    And this can be a good thing if he can finance the development himself, as he did with a smaller one further uptown. Solow is also one of the better developers, if you use the Solow Building as precedent. The materials used and the solid corners were design requests of Burnshaft and not fiscally sensible.

    Further having expressed interest in architectural competition and discretion, and prominence, Im expecting he will be remembered more for this.

    Also from what Ive heard there have been talks with a large foreign company that would occupy the 70 storey building at 708 First Avenue.

    Look under planning for the ConEd Waterside project. There are some funky images there. I hope that's not the working design...

    I dont know, I like it. Though it looks like each of the competition architects designed their own building.

    It showed a couple of hours and then disappeared.
    The site looked busy.

    If they're working then a design must've been chosen right? Does anyone know the final design? Or are they just preparing for whatever building may come?

    I'm guessing they're preparing the site for construction. *That doesn't always imply that the design has been finalized. *Remember Alexander's?
