Manhattan is turning into a ghost town - what a ridiculous headline!

Tishman Spire is 1,005ft (306m). So much for a 1,400 footer ...
What a bummer. Only 1,005' for nearly 3 million square feet, I expected more from Tishman tbh. What a waste of potential. Towers with such a huge square footage are megatalls in other cities ...

Near-supertall announced for Queens-

http://therealdeal.com/2016/02/08/qu...ic-resi-tower/

http://newyorkyimby.com/2016/02/79-s...land-city.html

Will be 964 ft. This means two near-supertalls are going up in Long Island City. This will seriously bulk up the Queens side of the East River.

I'm looking forward to seeing what happens here.

Another potentially huge tower coming to Park Avenue.

Promising news re: 80 South St. Could yield another 400m+ behemoth in Lower Manhattan!

http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2016/0...nsfer.php#more

Tall Tower May Be Coming to Seaport After Air Rights Transfer

Quote:
The City Planning Commission has just approved the transfer of thousands of square feet of air rights from an adjacent lot to 80 South Street, a tipster has revealed to Curbed. Since the lots were acquired by the U.S. subsidiary of the Chinese investment company China Oceanwide Holdings in August 2015, 426,940 square feet of air rights have been transferred to the lot. Early rumors surrounding the site speculated that the developer was planning a supertall tower. While no plans have been filed with the Department of Buildings, it looks like at least something is up.

The transfer could lead to the construction of a building spanning 1,067,350 square feet, according to the documents submitted by 80 South Street LLC to the City Planning Commission.

China Oceanwide Holdings acquired the property at 80 South Street along with another site at 163 Front Street for $390 million in August last year from the Howard Hughes Corporation.

At that time plans for the site called for the construction of a 820,000 square foot tower with 440,000 square feet of residential space.

I don't know what it is, but I really like this skyscraper. Nice work! Love the renderings and can't wait for this one to break ground and start to rise.

Nordstrom shows plans for elaborate Manhattan flagship
Originally published February 11, 2016 at 6:33 am Updated February 11, 2016 at 9:08 am


Rendering of planned Nordstrom Manhattan flagship store on West 57th Street (Nordstrom)

Nordstrom unveils the footprint and exterior design of its planned New York flagship store.


Quote:
By Janet I. Tu
Seattle Times business reporter

Nearly four years after Nordstrom announced plans for its first full-line store in Manhattan, the Seattle retailer unveiled the footprint and exterior design of its New York City flagship.

The 363,000-square-foot store in the Columbus Circle neighborhood of midtown Manhattan is expected to open in 2019.
[...]
Quote:
The exterior of the new construction will feature “unique seven-level glass waveforms facades,” intended to catch the light and changes in light as the sun angles shift, according to Nordstrom. It will be created by James Carpenter Design Associates.

Sorry guys, I'm still confused with this one. ..Are Hudson Spire (435 10th Avenue) and
the Spiral (509 W. 34th) the same project? Both are listed here in different locations, one proposed the other a vision.

We've known about the Spiral for some time now. I'm hoping it's what they're calling the "Hudson Speyer" and not Hudson Spire.

^ The list has been updated for a while now.

435 10th Ave = 509W34th = Hudson Spire = Tishman Spire = The Spiral

This is the Tishman Speyer office site in Hudson Yards.

I don't know what "Hudson Speyer" is. Hudson Spire was just a name given to a development site by the sales brokers when it went for sale. It was a vision of what you could do with one of these HY sites. But Tishman Speyer builds office, not residential, so no chance of getting super-skinny spire on this site

Groundwork Begins at Downtown Supertall 45 Broad Street

Quote:
Wasting no time getting started, Madison Equities and Italy-based Pizzarotti Group have begun soil testing at the site of their upcoming supertall tower 45 Broad Street. After 6sqft revealed a trio of preliminary renderings last month, Pizzarotti Group’s CEO Rance MacFarland told Curbed that the tower will stretch 1,100 feet high and have 86 floors. He also shared that it will contain 245 condo residences catering to “entry- and mid-level buyers.
