    Default Con Ed site on the East River

    Is the site suspended? It redirects to a domain sale site.

    How much of the total site is this pic? *This isn't 9 acres, right? *

    It's only the site of 708 First Avenue, 41st Street between the FDR and First Avenue.

    I don't think this is related to the project. *Earlier, this site was used for construction work related (I think) to the Queens-Midtown Tunnel. *It involved pile drivers, warnings about blasting, etc., and went on for over *year. *It looks like they're cleaning up from that earlier project and preparing the site so it's ready to go. *But I wouldn't jump to the conclusion that construction is beginning.

    That said, I have no inside knowlege of this project, so I'm only speculating as well.

    It's OK to speculate. One of my favourite activities.

    Thanks for the welcome, Fabb and Zoe!

    The site I described is between 1st & FDR, 35th & 36th. Just south of Manhattan Place.

    That site is going to be a 34 story residential tower designed by Costas Kondylis & Partners.
    245 East 36th Street/241-249 East 36th Street/663-673 Second Avenue
    34 stories

    Dev-Mark Perlbinder
    Proposed

    Elsewhere in New York, the "Post" reports luxury multifamily developer Mark Perlbinder wants to build a 34-story mixed-use development. Nothing unusual about that, except the building would stand partially on top of the Manhattan entrance to the Midtown Tunnel. The tower would include 480 apartments, with a Post Office and retail component on the lower four stories. The project faces a public hearing Dec. 11.


    IGDNYC's December 2003 report says Pfizer still has a deal pending for the tower.
