    Default Visionaire - 70 Little West Street - Downtown - Condo - by Pelli Clarke Pelli

    Excavation is well underway in this building (diagonally across the new Teardrop Park from The Solaire). Haven't found any renderings yet, but here's an awful photo taken on 3/16/04:

    Actually it's site 19B and 18B. There's a rendering on Ernest Burden III / O'Really inc's website. It's been there for years so the design could have changed. They are suppose to be 24 stories by the way.

    That's a great rendering. Thank you. This whole section of BPC area will have the Robert Stern feel... he's among my favorite architects, so I, for one, am pleased.

    Regarding the address: one block to the North is The Hallmark, a Brookdale Retirement Living and it's address is 455 North End Avenue. I imagine these new buildings will have North End Avenue addresses in that range... maybe 453? Map can be found here:

    Default Info on Site 2A?

    Anyone know anything about the building going up at site 2A (directly north of the Ritz Carlton)? I read last year that the Millennium Partners (same developers of the Ritz) are also going to be building a new residential building there, but haven't seen any news since.

    Developer chosen for hot Battery Park site


    by Christine Haughney
    June 30, 2004

    Following a hotly contested bid to develop the last available plot of downtown waterfront property, the Hugh L. Carey Battery Park City Authority chose a Long Island-based developer, an old-line real estate family's construction company and a former deputy mayor to build a 30-story condominium tower.

    Battery Park City Authority officials chose the Sheldrake Organization, which is the state's largest owner and manager of privatized public housing, Plaza Construction Corp., which is owned by the Fisher family, and RW Consultants, a firm run by former deputy mayor Rudy Washington, to build a 537,400-square-foot residential building with more than 300 apartments. The building will be in the northern part of Battery Park City, between the Irish Hunger Memorial and the nearly completed Teardrop Park.

    The winning bidder beat out more than 10 competitors to develop the site. These contenders included Brookfield Properties in partnership with the Clarett Group, the Durst Organization with the Albanese Development Corp., and Jonathan Rose Cos. with Avalon Bay Communities.

    Developer Chosen for Battery Park Site


    July 1, 2004

    The Sheldrake Organization, Plaza Construction Corporation and RW Consultants have been selected to erect a "green" residential tower on the last waterfront site in Battery Park City. The building will be approximately 30 stories tall and contain more than 300 residential units.

    The new 537,400-square foot building, slated for Site 16/17, is located on the Hudson River, bordered on the north by Murray Street, the east by North End Avenue, the South by Vesey Street, and on the west by River Terrace.

    "We received a record number of proposals from some of the nation’s most prominent developers," said Timothy S. Carey, President and CEO of the Hugh L. Carey Battery Park City Authority. "The wide appeal for this innovative project is further evidence of both the resilience of the New York real estate market, and the attractiveness of building in Battery Park City."

    Site 16/17 will be the fifth site developed under the Authority’s "green" development guidelines, and with a 45,000 square foot footprint, it represents the largest remaining residential site in Battery Park City. The future residential tower will sit between the Irish Hunger Memorial and the nearly completed Teardrop Park.

    Plaza Construction Corp. is owned by the Fisher family and RW Consultants is a firm run by former deputy mayor Rudy Washington. The Sheldrake Organization is based on Long Island and is New York State's biggest developer of privatized public housing.

    JV Plans $250M 'Green' Condo in Battery Park City
    By Barbara Jarvie - Globest.com
    Last updated: July 2, 2004 04:11pm

    NEW YORK CITY-After intense competition, a development group comprised of the Sheldrake Organization, Plaza Construction Corp. and RW Consultants Inc. was selected to construct a 537,400-sf “green” residential tower on the last remaining waterfront site in Battery Park City. This marks the fifth site in the Lower Manhattan neighborhood developed under the Hugh L. Carey Battery Park City Authority’s “green” development guidelines. The 30-story complex is expected to have more than 300 units and be privately financed to the tune of $250 million.
    The not-yet-named building, which is scheduled for a spring 2005 groundbreaking and completion sometime the following year, is slated for Site 16/17--the largest remaining residential site in Battery Park City. It is located on the Hudson River, bordered on the north by Murray Street, the east by North End Avenue, the south by Vesey Street and on the west by River Terrace.
    The building will feature oversized units, including many three- and four-bedroom apartments, upper-floor duplexes, nature-interior finishes and unique floor layouts. The building will also include a courtyard which will serve as a continuation of the nearly completed Teardrop Park. This is the first project of this kind for Sheldrake, what they’re calling “a real breakout deal for them in the New York City market.”
    In regards to the "green" aspect, the developers’ goal is to achieve what is known as Gold Leed status. Just a few of the anticipated “green” amenities will be rain, black and gray water collection and treatment systems, enecrete heat source, rooftop and courtyard plantings, bamboo flooring in residential units and a possible rooftop turbine windmill.
    According to Sheldrake, the apartment interiors will be finished by Ismael Leyva architects, which was recently involved in the design of the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle. Other projects include luxury apartments in the Chatham and Park Imperial Buildings as well as the Millennium Towers in Jersey City.
    “We received a record number of proposals from some of the nation’s most prominent developers,” says Timothy S. Carey, president and CEO of the Hugh L. Carey Battery Park City Authority. The authority issued an RFP earlier this year and had a dozen responses before selecting a winning team. “The wide appeal for this innovative project is further evidence of both the resilience of the New York real estate market, and the attractiveness of building in Battery Park City.”
    The Battery Park City Authority is a public benefit corporation created by the New York State Legislature in 1968 to develop a 92-acre site at the southwestern tip of Lower Manhattan.

    Default Teardrop Park

    Has anyone visited the new Teardrop Park? It would be great to see some photos. I wonder if the ice-wall is beginning to freeze yet...
