    Biggest problem is residential buildings look like bland comercial buildings now, since they use so much glass facade.

    Crains: At Deadline


    January 09, 2006

    The Moinian Group has been told it will probably receive $50 million in Liberty Bonds for its hotel and condominium project at 123 Washington St. It had been seeking $123 million of the tax-free financing. World Trade Center developer Larry Silverstein had sought all of the remaining Liberty Bonds, totaling $1.7 billion.

    Moinian Aims To Build Downtown Hotel Financed in Part by $50M in Liberty Bonds


    By DAVID LOMBINO
    April 11, 2006

    Developer Joseph Moinian is aiming to break ground next month on a 53-story hotel and condominium near ground zero that could be financed in part with $50 million in Liberty Bonds - financing that Larry Silverstein is also seeking.

    The city has not yet awarded the bonds to Mr. Moinian, but a city official familiar with the application said the Bloomberg administration supports his project, which it sees as a relatively inexpensive way to encourage mixed-use development in Lower Manhattan.

    The official said a hotel condominium could help spur demand at ground zero, and that $50 million in Liberty Bonds is not significant enough to upset negotiations with Mr. Silverstein, who has applied for the remaining $1.67 billion of the city's Liberty Bonds.

    The city has not yet awarded any Liberty Bonds to Mr. Silverstein in an effort to compel the developer to renegotiate his 99-year lease on the ground zero site.

    A spokeswoman for the Moinian Group, Daphne Viders, said yesterday that the bond application is being held up because Mr. Moinian has not yet submitted all the necessary paperwork to the city. She said a luxury hotelier would partner with the developer in the project; press reports have said it will be part of the W Hotel chain.

    Last April, Mr. Moinian applied for $147 million of the tax-exempt bonds. In December, the president of the agency that will award the bonds, Andrew Alper, said the city was considering awarding the developer about $50 million. That amount of tax-exempt financing could save the developer about $2 million a year versus traditional commercial financing. If Mr. Moinian is not awarded the bonds, he has said he will not build the hotel portion of his project and will just construct apartments.

    Mr. Moinian's 440,000-square-foot project, estimated to cost about $240 million, is slated to rise on an empty lot behind the Deutsche Bank building, which was severely damaged in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and is now being demolished. An office tower built by Mr. Silverstein is scheduled to occupy the Deutsche Bank building site, but the site has been mentioned as a possible residential building in recent negotiations between Mr. Silverstein and the Port Authority. It also could contain a hotel.

    The same month that Mr. Moinian applied for the bonds, Mr. Silverstein applied for the city's remaining allotment of Liberty Bonds, which the developer said he would use to build 10 million square feet of commercial office space in five towers.

    New perimeter fence and a Tishman sign at the site. Looks like construction is starting.

    That is great news! Now all we need is a better rendering. I am sure is not going to be all white.

    Tishman is serving the Moinian Group as construction manager for this new, 53-story hotel and condominium tower being erected at a tight sight on Albany and Washington Streets in Lower Manhattan. The site is the former location of a ten-story commercial building that was damaged on 9/11 and subsequently demolished. When completed, the building will contain 180 hotel units and 220 residential condominiums. Currently, excavation and foundation work is underway.
