NEW YORK | 29-33 West 57th St | FT | FLOORS


#21

Can’t wait for renderings and height info on this site. Lots of sites that have big plans ahead, yet we are in the dark. I guess it keeps the suspense in high gear for us. :wink:


#22

I agree, Chris!

Only in NY!!!


#23

I love the lines of the neighboring tower, the Solow building I believe. Great location.


#24

I agree. The Grace Building on 42nd is the fraternal twin of Solow’s 9 W 57th.

This site has been cleared!

I hope that Virnado builds another Stern tower here. I don’t know how many air rights Vornado has, but a slender 900’+ limestone tower would be quite nice here!

Waiting for Godot


#32

Hopefully we get some info and renderings soon enough. I wonder when construction will start here…


#33

I’m really curious about this site’s air rights. This can be at least a 700’ tower but perhaps 1,000.


#34

Raw as-of-right potential, I believe, is between 150k to 200k. I’ll have to calculate it again. Air rights elsewhere could bump that up, of course!

Edit: 27-33 West 57th has 150,660 square feet of development rights. 35 W. 57th has 26,320 square feet of air rights (I’d image they get them). There are a few other properties with lots of air rights still.


#35

Thanks, Vena!


#36

I love this view of the Solow building, albeit a temporary one.


#37

I can’t wait to see the design for this site.


#38

Interesting comments considering that LeFrak is Vornado’s partner at this site, though part of the plan is for a five-star hotel.


#39

Hmmm, I wonder if they’ll build now or hold off for later like the Park Lane tower. But then again, this is a vacant lot and that’s a still profitable hotel.


#40

I agree. I think they’ll proceed. Part of this is supposed to be a hotel which will generate money.
