Thread: Atelier Condominium - 635 West 42nd Street - Condo - by Costas Kondylis

    Actually, Moinian's site is right next to this site on 11th. According to the figures from that NYP article, it will have about 3 times the square footage as this one. Too bad that doesn't translate into a 138 story building.

    Default Thanks

    Thanks for straightening me out. I guess Moinan is using the same architect which is why I got confused. I wonder how the views will be comprised if there are two tall towers so near each other.

    Yes I read on a commercial real estate web site that is was sold to The Moinian Group from J.D. Carlisle.
    I'd point you in the right direction but for the fact that I didnt save it as a fav. and it was a bear finding it the first time.

    From my own personal knowledge and involvement, the Atlelier, clad in metal panels, which go up as a wall system and then get connected to one another, is to be one of the first NYC High Rise buildings built in this way and may set the standard for similar designs of high rises in NYC. Also I believe there is a sister building planned for one of the adjoining sites.

    If anyone has a new pics of the project, could you please post them. thanks

    This building is going to be nice. Too bad for the residents that they will have to look across the street at Riverplace.

    Yea, a lot of the people on the north side of River Place are getting blocked. A lot of those apartments had a view of the GW bridge...very pretty at night. It seems though the at least with the Atelier being as slender as it is, a large portion of views will be retained. I have a friend in a north face apartment and he said he was surprise by how much he could still see around it.

    Sidenote: the gas station at 42nd/11th was fixed up, with new piping put into the grounds there (closed for 2-3 weeks), reopened for about a week, then got fenced off, and is being torn down. Is it true a building 3x the sq. footage of atelier is going there? If so, maybe with River Pl II, Atelier, that building and the 10th Ave building there will be renewed pressure for the 7 extension. Ahh, dreams.

    No exposed floor plates and no balconies . This one should switch places with 325 Fifth Ave.

    Construction up to 32nd floor at 46-story Atelier on West 42nd Street 01-DEC-05

    A sales office will open in February at the 46-story condominium apartment tower now under construction by the Moinian Group and MacFarlane Partners at 627 West 42nd Street.

    The mid-block tower will have 478 studio, 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom apartments ranging in price from $500,000 to $2,000,000.

    Construction on the tower is now up to the 32nd floor and sales will start in January, Daphne Mayer Viders, director of communications for the Moinian Group, told today.

    The tower has been designed by Costas Kondylis and will be distinguished by its four indented notches. The slab tower has all glass facades at its corners and the north and south facades have four 2-story-high protrude façade elements at the corners of the building that extend about two-thirds of the way across the facades in alternating fashion. The effect is very striking, bold and high-tech.

    According to a recent press release for the project, Mr. Kondylis drew inspiration for the building design from the great ocean liners docked along Manhattan’s West Side. He was quoted as stating that the "Atelier recalls the bow of a great ship interpreted all in glass with wrap-around balconies and expansive views."

    The developers purchased the project, which will be known as Atelier, in June from the J. D. Carlisle Development Group and CUBS 42nd Street LLC. It will have 12,000 square feet of interior retail space and 3,000 square feet of exterior retail space as well as a 100-space garage.

    The Atelier development will contain a total of about 500,000 square feet. Other amenities will include a sky-lit indoor pool, a 12,000 square-foot health club, a rooftop lounge and rooftop terraces.

    The developers also have acquired the adjoining low-rise Verizon building and a gas station to the east and plan to develop those two sites with a second phase that is expected to be completed in 2009 and contain about 1-million square feet of space with about 320 condominium units and 350 rental units. The second phase will be developed on the northwest corner of 42nd Street and 11th Avenue.

    MacFarlane Partners is investing in the project on behalf of its venture with the California Public Employees’ Retirement System ("CalPERS") to invest in urban-infill properties in major metropolitan areas nationwide. CalPERS is the nation’s largest public pension fund, with assets of $195 billion. Other New York City properties in which the firm has invested include Tribeca Green, a 274-unit apartment high-rise under construction in lower Manhattan; and The Shops at Columbus Circle, the retail component of the Time Warner Center, which opened in February 2004.
