...Tishman Speyer owns more than 165 million square feet of commercial space around the world, including 23 million square feet in New York, where its holdings include Rockefeller Center, the Chrysler Building and the MetLife Building.

Led since 2008 by President and Co-CEO Rob Speyer, the company now has more than 8 million square feet of projects in the development pipeline — perhaps its most ever at the same time.

Among them is a full-scale transformation of nearly six aces of mostly vacant former industrial space in Long Island City’s Queens Plaza district that will consist of two adjacent, mixed-used projects.

The Jacx will be the borough’s largest office development since the Citigroup tower opened in 1990. Two 26-story towers connected by a four-story base will have 1.2 million square feet, of which more than 70 percent is pre-leased to WeWork and Macy’s/Bloomingdale’s.

Across the street, work is nearly done on Jackson Park, a trio of high-rise luxury rental apartment towers with a private park.

Tishman Speyer has also started on The Wheeler, a 10-story, 620,000-square-foot “creative office hub” to rise atop Macy’s department store in downtown Brooklyn.

It also plans a new apartment tower on a former Macy’s garage site across the street.

The developer is also weighing plans for another tower of up to 1.3 million square feet on a site it owns between the new Hudson Boulevard and the Javits Convention Center between West 36th and 37th streets.

Hoping for a non boxy tower here, even though trends are against that.

This very could likely be a near super tall if not passing the 300m mark. The dimensions and development potential is there.

It's Tishman Speyer. Chances are very high that it will be boxy.

Tishman Speyer’s park gift will give developer air rights for tower
Purchase of property housing auto-shop will ultimately benefit office project






March 25, 2019


Quote:
Tishman Speyer quietly bought a run down auto-shop last week, and plans to build an elaborate park on the city’s Far West Side.

In return, the city awarded the developer unspecified air rights for a planned office tower that is slated to be built on the same block, next to the Jacob Javits Center on 11th Avenue, according to the New York Post.

Tishman Speyer, led by Rob Speyer, paid $20.14 million for the park site, a two-story warehouse at 527 West 36th St. It will be redeveloped as a park, and help build out a planned greenway to span West 33rd and 39th streets. It will be built over rail yards currently occupying the site.
Quote:
The area was renamed Bella Abzug Park last week, changed from its initial name, Hudson Yards Park. Tishman Speyer reportedly received the air rights under a city incentive known as the District Improvement Bonus, which aims to encourage development in the Hudson Yards District.

In September the city said it planned to spend $374 million developing the park — more than $124 million per acre.

Tishman Speyer hasn’t filed any plans for the tower next to the park, but in 2016 the company said the development would span 1.3 million square feet and contain retail. It would be Tishman Speyer’s second tower the developer has built in Hudson Yards, where it plans 4 million square feet.

Tishman Speyer’s secret purchase paves way for expanded Bella Abzug Park




By Steve Cuozzo
March 24, 2019


Quote:
Tishman Speyer, which plans a massive new building across from the Javits Center on Eleventh Avenue, is set to deliver a gift to the city — and receive a gift in return.

The developer last week quietly bought 527 W. 36th St., a two-story auto repair building, for $20.14 million, city Finance Dept. records revealed.

The unpublicized purchase is tiny by Manhattan standards. But it paves the way for the next segment of lushly landscaped Bella Abzug Park, which was renamed from its original Hudson Yards Park last week.
Quote:
The company led by Rob Speyer will raze the small building. It will then construct a greenway between West 36th and West 37th streets and west of 10th Avenue. Park segments between West 33rd and West 36th streets are already open.

The completed park, which is being built one block at a time, will end at West 39th Street.

The new section will replace a current eyesore of sunken rail tracks and empty lots.

In exchange, Tishman Speyer is to receive as-yet unspecified air rights from the city to put up a tower on the same block, which is bounded by Tenth and Eleventh avenues and West 36th and 37th streets.
Quote:
“Tishman Speyer is building and paying to construct the park,” Department of Parks spokeswoman Crystal Howard told The Post.

“As part of the Hudson Yards zoning framework, Tishman Speyer will receive development rights for their contribution.”

She said that the city will pay for yet-to-come park segments between West 37th and West 39th streets “unless another developer chooses to similarly perform an in-kind contribution.”

Tishman Speyer held off on buying 527 W. 36th St. until a park design by landscape architects Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates was approved by the Parks Department and other city agencies.

The developer will turn the completed park over to the city. Its construction cost is unknown. Work is to start late this year or early in 2020.

I don't see them using that vanity address simply for the reason that there already is an iconic 99 Hudson address in Jersey City.

The Spiral is also 66 Hudson Boulevard, so I'm sure they could call it something else. But regardless, 99 Hudson in JC is barely complete, not an address everyone will know. Anyway, this has long been in the works, and is related to the further development of the park...

I guess we could agree to disagree on that. It's the tallest building in its state.

Yes it is. Every state has one, doesn't mean they are well known. But that's besides the point. This is an office tower, and 99 Hudson in JC is residential, no conflicts there at all.

Never underestimate the building identification skills of the general public, because a lot of times, they really don't know. They just think its a tall building, but have no idea on its function or purpose.

Another design they did for Tishman, another Spiral-like tower. Apparently in Shanhai.

These "garden" towers are very popular.

A 1910 packing plant subsumed by Hudson Yards





April 1, 2019


Quote:
For more than a century, the two-story building at 527-531 West 36th Street held its own with its neighbors in this once-industrial part of Manhattan—away from more traditional retail stores and apartment buildings in the far west 30s.

It’s an unusual survivor that looks a lot older than records reveal.

Apparently constructed by 1910 (though one 1902 newspaper article said it was supposed to have five stories), the brick building has large arched windows and ornamental trim on the second floor.

One of its earliest occupants was a fruit packing plant; another business was Rohe and Brothers, a wholesale beef and pork provisions company.

It makes sense that Rohe operated here; West 36th Street is three blocks from what used to be known as Abattoir Place because of all the slaughterhouses that turned cattle brought to the West Side via rail or ferry into beef.

A milk distributor and pasteurization company operated here in the 1940s. Soon the food packers and distributors were replaced by auto body businesses, like Steven and Francine’s, whose sign hangs on the building’s boarded-up second floor.

Recently, this humble holdout in the shadow of Hudson Yards’ steel and glass luxury towers was sold to Tishman Speyer for $20 million. The real estate developer plans to turn the site into a park in exchange for air rights for another office tower going up next door.

It’s one of the last remaining vestiges of the far west 30s (at the recently named “Hudson Boulevard”) on the fringes of Manhattan. But it won’t be here much longer.

TishmanSpeyer is getting ready to build this 44-floor, 1.3 MSF office tower at 11th Ave/36th St. across from the Javits Center. Designed by @HenningLarsenArchitects, 99 Hudson Yards will feature elevated gardens and flexible interconnected spaces. Tishman Speyer will also fund the construction of a portion of Bella Abzug Park out in front.

Since it’s only 1.3m sf, I assume that it will be built on spec.

An optimistic trend. Shows confidence in the market. Couple of high square-footage towers building on-spec (planned). Hope the trend continues.

I was confused about why Tishman would be purchasing the land for the park when the City paid for previous segments, and planned to pay for the rest of the land, especially when the air rights for Hudson Yards development comes from the eastern railyards and a District Improvement Bonus. But it turns out, the Park is also an option for the DIB (shown on the lower left in fine print)...

I agree. Hopefully, Larry will proceed with 2 WTC.

I'd like to see a rendering of the west façade that faces 11th. These images all depict the east and south facades.

I like this much better than the redesigned spiral. I like the warm colors and the play on facade depths. At the very least it'll be an interesting sight.
