    Here's the link by the way guys.

    Some renderings of 99 Church, 388 Bridge, 135 W 45th, and 610 Lexington.

    SLCE and Kondylis (maybe Handel) are the best at providing efficient residential layouts that make the most money.

    Derek,

    How did you learn this information? Are you in the architecture or construction industry? Have you heard whether de Portzamparc is the actual architect?

    Thumbs up

    The 99 Church renders from SLCE are very attractive and evocative of an older NYC ...

    I agree. I wonder what SCLE's role is with respect to this project.

    Missed that one; you're right, it's fine.

    There was an article today about Barnett in the New York Observer. This project remains a mystery. The Observer said that Barnett filed plans for this building but that might have more to do with beating the city's new building codes. Barnett said that they weren't going through with all the buildings filed (6), one positive is that he said he is more inclined to build hotels as he thinks that'll be the first segment to come back.

    That's a big gamble. Others say the hotel sector, the hardest hit and currently unable to be financed, will take quite some time before tit's viable, especially with the big vacancies at new NYC hotels (recently the new McSam trio on W 39th was ~20 full at first week) and with lots of new(er) rooms still not yet on market (still under construction).

    Short memories. Hotels are heavily cyclical. Room demand is already starting to creep back. CMBS demand will follow eventually as well. Baby steps.

    Hotel location becomes key
    Experts say only hotels in prime neighborhoods likely to get built
    June 30, 2009 11:11PM

    By Catherine Curan

    Before the economy collapsed last September, hotel developers rushed to do deals in almost any Manhattan neighborhood, from the Financial District to the Lower East Side to the far West Side, trying to cash in on the surging demand for rooms.....

    But with delays and defaults becoming the new rule, once the credit markets finally thaw, projects in better-established neighborhoods may emerge as most-likely-to-be-built. Gary Barnett, president of Extell, is one of the developers putting Lower Manhattan on the back burner in favor of 57th Street and Times Square, areas with long track records of filling hotel rooms.

    "In times like this, only the prime of the prime of the prime of the prime has a chance of getting built," said Barnett.

    Old photo but gives you an idea of the view.

    Has activity resumed there?

    PS: It's a shame that the POJ to the east is still standing. It has such a crappy facade.

    Yes, excavation work continues every weekday starting at 7 AM.

    (And I don't particularly like the Nippon Club building, either.)
