Hudson Yards Vessel

Completion of Vessel at Hudson Yard上海夜网论坛 上海夜网s is a year out and Stephen Ross is in love People are already wondering whether it will be New York’s greatest success or an epic, costly failure

The legacy of Stephen Ross and designer Thomas Heatherwick s loving collaboration hangs on the future of a skeletal 365-day Christmas tree,” as Ross told journalists when he unveiled the design in 2016.

The monumental project, named Vessel, is costing Ross Related Companies an estimated $200 million to build, but it s an expense the billionaire chairman is willing to incur in order to build New York the 150-foot Eiffel Tower-like landmark (in his own estimation) it deserves. But, a year ahead of its scheduled completion, people both outside and inside Related are wondering about the project s future as Ian Parker reports in The New Yorker.

Most public spaces consider the programming of events and details like crowd control first before designing the park that s how Bryant Park Corporation s Dan Biederman did it and would recommend to others. Ross, however, did the opposite, commissioning British designer Heatherwick in 2013 to create a sculpture, which will sit on a landscaped garden  among the towering buildings of Hudson Yards, and consist of 154 flights of stairs; then Ross tasked Related president Jay Cross to come up with programming to ensure strong footfall.

“This will be上海千花网交友 上海千花网论坛 a real test,” Biederman said to the New Yorker. “I’m absolutely undecided whether Hudson Yards will be the greatest success or a failure.”

Cross, for his part, seems to be lost as to what to do with Vessel, which he himself called forbidding before correcting himself: It really depends on where you stand.

Cross has brought on Super Bowl halftime producer David Saltz to help him plan the Vessel s rapidly approaching grand opening, but even then, Cross admitted to th上海贵族宝贝交流区 上海贵族宝贝论坛e magazine: I don’t know how it’s going to work.”

But Ross is not concerned; he s in love and he s admitted it to himself.

“I fell in love instantly,” Ross told the New Yorker. “My guys around here thought I was out of my goddamn mind. It was too big, too this, too that. ‘How are we going to build it?’ ‘What’s it going to cost?’ I said, ‘I don’t care.’

For Heatherwick who is widely acclaimed for his unusual architectural works, but is not a licensed architect and has been recently embroiled in scandal over a cancelled London project involving public money Ross is the dream client. According to the magazine, the design of Vessel s 爱上海同城对对碰 爱上海同城论坛intricate stairs was first iterated in 2006 in an unbuilt design originally intended for a hilltop in Azerbaijan.

Time will tell how their work and relationship ultimately ends, but, to Bosto阿爱上海同城 阿拉爱上海同城n Consulting Group s  Ross Love, it s not necessarily a bad sign that there is no discernible us[……]

After years of planning, Somerset Partners and the Chetrit Group are walking away from one of the most ambitious real estate projects in the history of the Bronx.

The partners are selling their development sites at 101 Lincoln Avenue and 2401 Third Avenue to Brookfield Property Partners for $165 million, the New York Post reported.

Chetrit and Keith Rubenstein’s Somerset planned to build seven tow爱上海龙凤419桑拿 上海龙凤论坛sh1fers with 1,300 market-rate rental units on the sites, which sit next to the Harlem River in Mott Haven. They paid $58 million to acquire the sites, public records show. The developers first filed plans in 2015, and were in the market for a $500 million construction loan for the project, which was expected to cost around $600 million.

The Post reported that Brookfield will likely “tweak” the development’s design. Cushman Wakefield brokered the sale.

The project became notorious in 2015 when Chetrit and Somerset hosted a “Bronx is burning”-themed party with celebrities like Carmelo Anthony and Kendall Jenner at the site, drawing criticism from then-City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, among others.  The developers’ attempts to rename the neighborhood “Piano District” with the help of giant billboards also didn’t go down well with many locals.

Brookfield, one of the city s most active developers, is c上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝urrently developing the massive Manhattan West mixed-use development near Penn Station and recently agreed to take over reta爱上海龙凤419桑拿 上海龙凤论坛sh1fil real estate investment trust General Growth Properties.  [NYP] Konrad Putzier

2420 Amsterdam Avenue

Youngwoo Associates lands $131M for its colorful Washington Heights development Financing includes $70.M building loan

Shanghai Commercial Bank, one of the more active hotel construction lenders in the city, is backing colorful 上海贵族宝贝 上海千花网龙凤论坛Radio Tower Hotel project.

Youngwoo Associates scored $130.6 million in financing from the Hong Kong-based lender to help build its vibrant 22爱上海同城对对碰 爱上海同城论坛-story, mixed-use development in Washington Heights.

Shanghai Commercial provided a $45.5 million project loan and a $70.5 million building loan, according to records filed with New York City s Department of Finance Tuesday. The bank also took on a $14.6 million senior loan from HSBC Bank.

The project at 2420 Amsterdam Avenue will be a joint hotel, office and retail project, which Dutch firm MVRDV designed to look like an interconnected stack of colorful blocks.

Youngwoo Associates and its partner on the project, Beijing Construction and Engineering Group International, held a groundbreaking ceremony for the 221-key project in November.

Youngwoo Associate s Bryan Woo declined to comment on the financing. Shanghai Commercial Bank did not immediately return requests for comment.

The developer picked up the site, a former 爱上海同城手机版 新爱上海同城对对碰论坛parking lot, for $12 million in 2013.

Shanghai Commercial is one of the busier construction lenders in the hotel space, an area other banks have shied away from amid a glut of new properties.

The bank last year loaned $60 million to Frank Ng for a hotel he s planning in Chelsea, at 132 West 28th Street, and provided acquisition and construction financing to Richard Lou s LCRE Group.

Shanghai Commercial in 2016 also provided a $222 million c新爱上海同城对对碰论坛 上海同城对对碰交友社区onstruction loan to the Lam Group for its Virgin Hotel in NoMad.

Youngwoo Associates in September announced the launch of an Opportunity Zone fund with investment star新上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝交流区tup EquityMultiple. Woo said the Amsterdam Avenue project is not part of this fund, but it is located in an Opportunity Zone and his firm is exploring whether it will be able to benefit from the program s tax incentives.

Industry City

Sunset Park Council member says Industry City rezoning is “dead on arrival” if landlord doesn’t hit pause Carlos Menchaca invokes Amazon’s HQ2 in rezoning discussion

UPDATED, March 6, 1:15 p.m.: The Brooklyn City Council member whose vote could make or break Industry City’s rezoning in Sunset Park says the deal is “dead on arrival” if the landlord doesn’t delay its application.

Council member Carlos Menchaca said Sunset Park’s local community board is in the middle of a process to evaluate displacement and gentrification along the waterfront area, and is currently not ready to begin the city’s land use review process.

“If Industry City does not delay the application, and continue to follow the Sunse新上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝交流区t Park community’s lead, then this application is dead on arrival,” Menchaca said in a statement he released Wednesday morning.

A spokesperson for Industry City said the company is disappointed by the request for a delay, and that it  intend[s] to make our case through the land-use process.

“Last month, New York City squandered an opportunity to bring 25,000 jobs to Long Island City, spokesperson Lisa Serbaniewicz said. Now, the possibility to create 15,000 new jobs is about to be lost in Sunset Park, where a plan for the reactivation of Industry City is about to begin the public review process.

Serbaniewicz pointed out that that Industry City first file爱上海同城对对碰 爱上海同城论坛d a plan to rezo爱上海同城对对碰 爱上海同城论坛ne the complex four years ago, and since then has participated in numerous community meetings.

The owners of the massive Sunset Park complex – a partnership between Jamestown, Belvedere Capital, Cammeby’s International and Angelo, Gordon Co. – filed their application late last month to rezone the 30-acre campus, as The Real Deal first reported.

The rezoning would allow the landlords expand retail at the site. Industry City is also looking to add another 1.45 million square feet of new construction, including a pair of hotels.

Menchaca and Sunset Park’s Community Board 7 wrote a letter to Industry City CEO Andrew Kimball saying the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Process – or ULURP – does not give local stakeholders enough time to fu上海贵族宝贝 上海千花网龙凤论坛lly evaluate the impact of a rezoning.

“As the Amazon HQ deal highlighted – and as urban planners, environmentalists, and Sunset Park leaders have understood for a long time – ULURP is insufficient for evaluating displacement, gentrification, and the effects of climate change,” the letter read.

As part of the negotiations over the Amazon deal, Gov. Andrew Cuomo agreed to put in a General Project Plan that would have taken the rezoning process out of the hands of city officials and ULURP.

Still, Menchaca and CB7 said they hope Industry City will delay its application and come to the table with them.

“Given your commitment thus far to follow the community’s lead, we ask that you delay the application and join us in[……]
