    Default One Ten 3rd - 110 Third Avenue - Condo - by GreenbergFarrow

    From curbed:



    We got a tip that the sign for the Toll Brothers' East Village development (R.I.P., Variety Playhouse) went up yesterday afternoon, and sure enough, the corresponding website is up and running. It looks like they're going the ThreeTen route of branding and calling the building One Ten 3rd, but let's hope they leave Greenwich out of this, eh? The site is fairly bare bones right now, but you've still got the requisite porno music and Flash'd up neighborhood photos. Pictures of the Loews on Third Ave. (we hear that Narnia flick is going to be huge!) blend into the real selling points: Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, the Greenmarket and, uh, Ben & Jerry's. Apparently anorexics need not apply at this building. The site also confirms that prices for the one- to three-bedroom condos begin at $850,000, and Halstead is handling it.

    Some more info for this project from a few weeks ago...

    Excavation proceeding at 110 Third Avenue 05-APR-06

    Excavation work has begun for a new 21-story residential condominium tower on the former site of the historic Variety Arts Theater at 110 Third Avenue between 13th and 14th Streets.
    Greenberg Farrow is the architect for the building, which is being developed by Toll Brothers, one of the country’s largest developers of luxury homes. Toll Brothers is based in Horsham, Pennsylvania, and this is its first project in Manhattan. It is also planning four other projects in the city.

    The new building will have 77 one- to three-bedroom apartments and is being built “as-of-right,” that is, within existing building and zoning regulations. Sales are expected to start this summer and completion is anticipated for next spring. Pricing is estimated to range from about $850,000 to $2,200,000.

    The building will have balconies, large windows, and a roofdeck with partly roofed private spaces with electrical outlets and running water that will be for sale to the residents.

    The Variety Arts Theater opened prior to World War I as a nickelodeon and its three-story, red-brick building was renovated in 1930 and again in 1991. It had 498 seats and was used for many Off-Broadway productions such as “Return to the Forbidden Planet” in 1991, “Annie Warbucks” in 1993, “Death Defying Acts” in 1995, “Zombie Prom” in 1996, “June Moon” in 1998, “Dinner with Friends” in 1999, “Reefer Madness” in 2001, “Endpapers” in 2002, “Ominium Gatherium” in 2003 and The Joys of Sex” in 2004. The theater closed in October, 2004.

    The theater had a large marquee and was around the corner from the very large Academy of Music theater that was converted to the Palladium disco and it was also around the corner from Julian’s Billiards. In recent years, New York University has erected several large dormitory buildings nearby including one on the Palladium site and another on the former site of Luchow’s, the famous German restaurant that was a few doors west of the Palladium site on 14th Street.

    Why I HATE this building ...

    Walking up the Bowery above Houston the Chrysler Building rises in the distance -- solitary and beautiful -- one lone skyscraper standing tall and glorious.

    Enjoy the vista now ...

    This new building is quickly rising and will kill that view. The concrete block of the lower floors is beginning to encroach on the sight of the Chrysler -- and before long not a bit of that tapering shaft of Deco majesty will be visible at all

    Steel beam plummets from crane into taxi, injuring 5

    NY DAILY NEWS
    Sep 29, 2006 -- 5:58 PM EDT

    NEW YORK (AP) -- A steel beam fell from a large construction crane and plummeted about 20 stories into traffic Friday afternoon, crashing onto a taxi and injuring five people, officials said.

    The beam fell from a construction site at 108 Third Avenue near the corner of East 13th Street, according to fire department spokesman Tony Sclafani.

    Two people were taken to separate area hospitals and three people were treated on the scene.

    Sclafani described the beam as a rigging that was used to support the crane.


    Several buildings nearby were evacuated and three blocks along Third Avenue were closed to traffic. Officials weren't sure yet how the crane would be stabilized.

    September 29, 2006

    At least five people were injured in a construction accident just before 4 p.m. Friday in the East Village.

    Police and fire officials say part of a massive construction crane fell near Third Avenue and East 13th Street, injuring construction workers and bystanders below.

    Falling debris from the 30-story crane also partly crushed a taxicab on the street, although it's unclear if anyone was inside the taxi at the time.

    The accident has effected L train subway service in parts of Manhattan.

    BREAKING: Crane Collapse at One Ten 3rd

    curbed
    Friday, September 29, 2006,
    by Lockhart



    Two reports just across the CurbedWire about the Toll Brothers development One Ten 3rd, whose apartments hit the market earlier this week:
    1) "Heard a loud crash in the East Village and then noticed multiple helicopters circling - seems like there was a crane accident at the Toll Brothers site."

    2) "A large section of the crane just fell as they were removing sections. Onlookers were saying that the large piece may have partially fallen on a passing taxi...?" [WNBC confirms the cab crushing; no injury reports as yet]
    And here we were trying to figure out what a Curbed commenter meant when they remarked, "Toll is to luxury housing/McDonalds is to salads."

    Five Injured as Steel Rigging
    From a Crane Falls
    20 Stories


    Dima Gavrysh/Associated Press
    A steel section of a construction crane’s rigging fell 20 stories Friday on Third Avenue,
    crushing a taxi and injuring five people.

    NY TIMES

    September 30, 2006

    A four-ton chunk of steel rigging from a construction crane fell 20 stories to the ground yesterday afternoon at an East Village construction site, crashing onto a taxicab, injuring five people, prompting a high-level rescue, and forcing evacuations and street closings lasting into the night.

    The taxi driver and his passenger escaped with minor injuries, the authorities said, as the steel pyramid slammed into the vehicle’s passenger side. But three construction workers were nearly knocked unconscious and were trapped in the crane’s cab until Emergency Service Unit officers made their way up 20 stories to free them, authorities said.

    Rescuers at the scene shook their heads in astonishment that no more than five people had been hurt, and none seriously. The cabby, Chrislorme Paul, was treated at St. Vincent’s Hospital Manhattan and released, the police said.


    Patrick Andrade for The New York Times
    A solid concrete block hung from a crane whose support system
    loosened Friday, sending a four-ton chunk of steel falling to the street.

    Officials said a 13-foot section of the crane’s support structure was being dismantled just before 4 p.m. when it somehow came loose, struck the side of the building under construction at 110 Third Avenue, and fell to the ground near the corner of East 13th Street. The force caused the crane’s cab to sway violently, sending the workers inside hurtling from side to side.

    “They were in the belly of the crane,” said Sgt. Edward Allen, an emergency services supervisor who was one of the first on the scene. “The load shifted. They were tossed against the walls. They couldn’t move too well. They were injured and they were rattled.”

    Reached at his home in Brooklyn last night, the cabdriver, Mr. Paul, said the noise was unnerving.

    “It was like a hurricane, Category 3 or 4; a big noise,” Mr. Paul said. “It hit the right side of the car and destroyed it, completely.” His passenger, seated on the driver’s side, opened her door and got out. He was trapped, but “after one or two minutes, a lot of people came and opened my door and helped me out.”

    The fallen steel made large indentations in the pavement and touched off several minutes of confusion as people ran from the scene, some ducking or peering skyward. A group of police cadets from the nearby Police Academy ran toward the scene, witnesses said.


    Patrick Andrade for The New York Times
    Bystanders watched as several buildings were evacuated and traffic was diverted.

    “There was a boom, a loud boom,” said Rachel Rosenfelt, 20, who was working at the Cosmic Cantina nearby. “I thought it was thunder, right outside.”

    Officials halted traffic along a four-block stretch of Third Avenue, afraid that a 14,000-pound concrete block or other pieces of the crane and its counterbalance systems might come loose and fall at unpredictable angles.
    They also evacuated people from commercial and residential buildings in the area.

    Wendy Carlson, 52, and Anthony Harshing, 43, were at a store on East 14th Street when they heard the crash. They saw the damaged taxicab and went to Ms. Carlson’s apartment nearby. But within minutes, firefighters carrying long tools were in the hallways, hurriedly rushing people out.

    Last evening, officials took two other cranes to the scene to stabilize the damaged one and help dismantle it. It was unclear how long the operation would last, though some officials said they suspected that it would continue at least until morning.

    “It’s a delicate operation,” Patricia J. Lancaster, the city’s buildings commissioner, said at a news conference last evening.

    About 10 p.m., some of the residents who had been evacuated were allowed to return to their homes.

    The general contractor for the site is Tishman, and the crane owner is New York Crane, said Jennifer Givner of the Buildings Department. She said Tishman had previously been cited for eight minor violations at the site.

    She added that Tishman had addressed the violations, for such things as failing to have the proper guardrail in place, or improper storage of construction material, and that the department expected to cite both companies for additional violations connected to the accident.

    Rebecca Cathcart, Daryl Khan and Colin Moynihan contributed reporting.

    Work Halted At Site Of Crane Accident In Manhattan's East Village
    September 30, 2006

    All work has been called off at the site of Friday’s crane accident in Manhattan.

    A spokeswoman for the Buildings Department says the builders, Tishman Construction, already had eight violations at the site.

    Most are minor, but more are potentially to come on Monday in light of the accident. Part of the crane plummeted more than a dozen stories onto the street, injuring five people.

    The crane crushed part of a taxicab. The driver and passenger were taken to the hospital but they were not seriously hurt. Three crane workers were also injured.

    That crane is now being dismantled. The city says it will be calling in an engineer to look at the crane and see who is at fault. Both the crane company and Tishman could be served with violations.

    L train service was suspended throughout the area following the incident, but it is back up and running now. About 30 people were evacuated from nearby homes, but they are all being allowed back.

    Meanwhile, another incident after the construction accident landed a police officer in the hospital.

    Police say a motorcycle cop who was part of a convoy taking away some of the debris, crashed as he tried to avoid a tour bus at 14th Street and Fifth Avenue just before 9 p.m. Friday.

    Police say the bus came through the intersection before the convoy had cleared. The officer swerved and lost control of his motorcycle. The motorcycle kept going and hit a pedestrian.

    City Points to Hydraulics in Crane’s Fall


    Patrick Andrade for The New York Times
    Construction workers dismantled a crane yesterday
    after part of its rigging dropped 20 stories on Friday.

    NY TIMES
    By ANTHONY RAMIREZ
    October 1, 2006

    A failure in a crane’s hydraulic system on Friday may have caused a four-ton steel section of the crane’s rigging to plummet 20 stories onto a taxicab, according to preliminary findings yesterday by the city Department of Buildings.

    All work at the construction site, at 110 Third Avenue near Union Square, has been halted, and notices of violations are likely to be issued to the crane operator, New York Crane, said Jennifer Givner, a spokeswoman for the Buildings Department.

    Part of Third Avenue, from East Ninth to East 13th Streets, remained closed yesterday afternoon, but most shops were open and residents who were briefly evacuated on Friday night were allowed back to their homes.

    Five people were injured when the crane failed: a driver and his passenger in the taxi, and three construction workers, who were hurled around in the crane’s cab when the section of rigging snapped away just before 4 p.m. and fell to the street. None of the injuries were serious.

    The crane was dangerously unbalanced, though. Cranes are designed to resist buckling and falling to the street, but the intricate system of weights and counterweights used to move material was severely damaged. That prompted workers to dismantle the entire crane on Friday evening and early yesterday and lower the pieces to the street.

    “We’ll have inspectors back there on Monday,” said Ms. Givner of the Buildings Department. “We anticipate issuing violations to the crane operator.”

    She added that if New York Crane “wants to go back to work, they have to come back to us with what is called an engineer’s report, detailing how they feel the accident occurred and how this can be prevented, kind of like a lessons-learned briefing.”

    “We’re very, very fortunate that no one died,” Ms. Givner said.

    New York Crane did not return phone messages left yesterday afternoon.

    110 is coming out terribly.

    No more fenestrations for me from now on.

    Here, see it for yourself.
