Jean Nouvel Tower Will Rise Next to MoMA



A planned 75-story tower at 53 West 53rd Street promises to change the face of the Manhattan skyline. The plans by architect Jean Nouvel were unveiled yesterday. The tower will rise next to, and expand, the Museum of Modern Art. Three floors of the building will be used by MoMA to increase exhibtion space. The rest of the tower will house a hotel and luxury apartments. The exterior of the building will be sheathed in glass and structural elements, giving the tower a crystalline appearance. Pre-sales for the project are expected to begin in late 2008.

High Line sparks development boom



The High Line park in Manhattan is starting a development boom along its route from the Meatpacking District north through West Chelsea. The High Line is a 1.5-mile-long elevated rail structure being converted into a public green space intended to create a quiet space above New York's busy streets. There is an estimated $900 million in new residential and commercial development planned for the area. Ten of at least 30 planned projects are already under construction.

"This is development that would not have occurred but for the rezoning and the development of the High Line," said Deputy Mayor Dan Doctoroff.

Once slated for demolition, the High Line has been embraced by some of the same property owners who once wanted it gone.

"During my first few weeks on the job, I was visited by a number of property owners that insisted that the High Line come down. We were one court decision away from demolition," Doctoroff recalled of his first days as deputy mayor in 2002.

"Now people are calling their buildings the 'High Line this,' or the 'High Line that.' "

Metal Houses



Architect Shigeru Ban’s Metal Shutter Houses condominium in West Chelsea is a paradox in outdoor urban living. Huge 20-foot window walls pivot fully open to create an appealingly open and airy environment. On the flip side, however, when the windows are down and huge metal shutters lowered one can only imagine the claustophobic effect of living in a storage locker. We do concede that from the outside it is quite a stunning look. The 9-unit condo, on Manhattan's West Side at 524 West 19th Street, is scheduled for completion in late 2008. A 4-bedroom unit on the 6th and 7th floors with 2,695 square feet of living space is being offered for $5.2 million.
