    Question Lex between 37/38.

    Looks like they tore down two townhouses on the east side of Lex between 37 & 38. Does anybody know what's going in there?

    I read about this a few months ago on either therealdeal.com or in the Post. One of the two buildings was nice, and the other was crap. The block just north of this one on the east and west side of the streets contains a lot of small, run-down lowrises with cheap stores that should be razed. South of this site, however, the lowrise buildings have a lot of character and are quite nice.

    Can't believe I'm saying this but hopefully O'Hara will come up with something a lot better. What an awful proposal by Karl Fischer.

    Yes, surprisingly awful and very Kaufman-like from Karl Fischer, although I doubt O'Hara's gonna give us anything much better and knowing him, maybe even worst.

    This city is going down the crapper as far as looks is concern.

    Kinda confusing...

    The site the article below refers to is bet. 38 & 39 streets, not bet. 37 and 38 streets as the title of this thread suggests.

    Anyway, I'm going to put it in here for now.

    Murray Hill development site trades


    By Adam Pincus

    Plans for a 25-story condominium are set to go forward following the sale of two neighboring vacant Murray Hill parcels for $29 million.

    Time Square Construction purchased the plots at 325-327 Lexington Avenue and 39th Street on May 13, according to city property records posted today.

    Kevin O'Sullivan, president of Time Square Construction, said construction would begin in about a week, and be completed in about 18 months. He estimated the project's cost, counting land and construction costs, at about $80 million.

    The Department of Buildings had previously approved plans for a 91,000-square-foot building with 116 units. The new developer planned a building of the same size but with about 100 apartments made up of mostly one- and two-bedrooms, as well as two duplex penthouses.

    O'Sullivan said he was drawn to neighborhood. "Location, pure location," he said.

    He said the troubled housing market did not dissuade him.

    "It is always a concern when the credit is tight, but when credit is tight it is better to buy," he said.

    The seller's name was not listed on the deed.

    Time Square Construction's other projects include the 123-unit condo 785 Eighth Avenue and 47 East 34th Street, a 110-unit tower at Park Avenue.

    CONSTRUCTION WATCH


    31-Story Apartment Tower Rising at 325 Lexington Avenue

    Wednesday, December 19, 2012, by Jessica Dailey



    A tipster sends word that the once-stalled construction site at 325 Lexington Avenue is moving full steam ahead. Last we heard anything about the site wasway back in 2006, when rumors were circulating that a 25-story tower was being built there. According to DOB records, this building started construction, but then stalled in 2008. Permits were renewed in July 2011, and work has been moving steadily forward since then, with the latest permits being issued just yesterday. Here's what we know from filings with the DOB: it will be 31 stories, plus a celler, the ground floor will have a restaurant/bar, and the residential portion will have 103 apartments (two full-floor penthouses), a club room, and a fitness center.

    A quick Google search for "325 Lexington" turns up a design for a building at the site created by Studio Dror. We're not sure if this is actually what the building will look like (we've reached out to Dror, but have yet to hear back), but if it is, then it's a pretty mindboggling tower.

    The base looks like a regular building, but the top is a series of glass-fronted boxes, stacked Jenga-like to create balconies and set-backs (not unlike 56 Leonard). We're still lacking on info, so if you have any intel about the building, hit up the tipline, but we'll definitely be investigating this more.

    It appears that they're building this.
