OMA's first New York apartment building at 121 East 22nd Street is on its way up and now the Toll Brothers City Living-led development team has unveiled a captivating film discussing the building’s design concepts and intent.
…and here’s another film showing off an installation found in the sales gallery that is meant to express the building’s iconic visual forms.


Stack of Office Blocks Coming to Downtown Brooklyn's Fulton Street

Zoning drawings have been approved for a new 200,000-square-foot office building planned for 540 Fulton Street in Downtown Brooklyn. The project replaces a robustly rusticated 125-year-old building that opened with a Woolworth’s store. The new tower is being developed by Jenel Management Corporation and designed by Marvel Architects.

Long-Derelict Keller Hotel will be Reborn if LPC Lets Adjmi Have His Way

Keller-Hotel-2 Proposed Rehabilitation of the Keller Hotel by Morris Adjmi Architects
We noticed last week, temporary scaffolding has gone up atop the old Keller Hotel, signaling a rooftop addition and renovation may be in the future for the long-derelict property. Lo and behold, today the LPC will examine a scheme designed by Morris Adjmi Architects that will rehabilitate the building and add a story above. Best yet, the team will keep the building’s iconic neon “Hotel” sign. The brick will be repointed, windows will be replaced and flood barriers will be installed on the ground floor.

Located at the corner of West Street and Barrow, the building is owned by the estate of William Gottlieb and was landmarked in 2007 per GVSHP. Next door to the Keller, the team will replace a one-story garage building at 144 Barrow with a 7-story condo-hotel building. The garage building is not under the jurisdiction of Landmarks but a few of Adjmi’s renderings show glimpses of it.

771 Washington: Two Office Floors to Top Meatpacking Crenellations

LPC is also to weigh in on the adaptive reuse of 771 Washington Street – a 1920s-era parking garage in the West Village to be converted into an office building. In December, the commission asked BKSK to refine the 2-story glass addition proposed atop the original building, and also consider shortening the addition's height. The revised concept shown here is now 2’-4” lower and buffered by lots of greenery.

L&L Holding is seeking to expand the top two floors of 150 Fifth Avenue, the former Methodist Book Concern building of 1888. The commercial office extraordinaires at Studios Architecture are the designers of the roof addition and it will be clad in terracotta and glass fiber reinforced concrete with large windows in between. This will be the building's third expansion since being built.

Downtown Alliance Launches Interactive 3D Map of Lower Manhattan

Yesterday, The Alliance for Downtown New York launched an interactive 3D map that tracks current and upcoming developments across Lower Manhattan. The scope of the interactive tool encompasses the one-square-mile below Chambers Street, tracking and visualizing all the residential, retail, office, hotel, transit, and 'open' sites of the area.

Still in beta-phase, the LM3D site will be recalibrated over the next few months to include a historical perspective. Its current features are updated daily and offer a variety of user-friendly filters to zero-in on Lower Manhattan's real estate in a variety of ways. First, users can look up an isolated address by square footage, construction date, or floor count. Second, they can keep an eye out on ongoing changes along development-heavy peripherals. Finally, they can get a bird's eye view of the area's overall land use.

Downtown Alliance President, Jessica Lappin, has stated that she hopes the tool will "empower planners, investors, residents, brokers and all stakeholders in the community, with the ability to see what's happening in close-to-real-time."


Saying Goodbye to The Waldorf Astoria

Today will be The Waldorf's last day in business before it closes for an indefinite renovation. And though we know the iconic hotel will be up-and-running again soon, we can't help but fret over the uncertainty and the changes this renovation will bring. Maybe we're just sentimental, but we thought it would be fun to commemorate the iconic Waldorf Astoria in this light-hearted Nike commercial —a last look at the hotel's old-fashioned charm before it reemerges anew:
