Does anyone know if the Shangri-La Hotel portion is still attached to this building?
Or will it now just be strictly condos?

It will just be condos, I believe. I think Shangri-La indicated it was looking elsewhere in Midtown to build a new hotel tower.

Aby Rosen’s RFR to tap Urban Compass for 61-story tower


December 13, 2014


Quote:
Aby Rosen’s RFR Realty – which already leases more than 60,000 square feet of office space to Urban Compass – is poised to retain the brokerage to market its 61-story hotel-condo development in Midtown.

In what would be Urban Compass’ first large-scale new-development marketing deal, the firm would market the condos at 610 Lexington Avenue, located between East 52nd and East 53rd Street, Crain’s reported.

RFR borrowed $144.2 million for the project in 2007, but saw the project stall during the credit crisis. It’s now back on track, and the developer broke ground on the 303,000-square-foot project in February. At that time, RFR announced China Vanke, the largest publicly traded developer in China, would partner on the project.

First Look at Norman Foster's Long-Stalled Midtown Condos

Thursday, February 5, 2015
Zoe Rosenberg




Quote:
Developer Aby Rosen would like you to know that, henceforth, his residential development formerly known as 610 Lexington Avenue will be known as One Hundred East Fifty Third Street, thankyouverymuch.

The announcement of the address change comes along with the launch of a teaser site that does shed some light on the appearance of the Foster + Partners-designed building, which will, as expected, have a faceted facade. Details on the project have been few and far between; in August Rosen unveiled via Instagram a preliminary interior rendering for the project, which comedically and casually included a rather pricey Jeff Koons poodle balloon sculpture.

A look at the project's Schedule A turns back that the 61-story, 94-apartment building will have a restaurant on its ground and second floors, and a swimming pool with all of its accoutrements on the ninth floor. According to the teaser site, sales are expected to commence in Spring 2015.

Rosen's RFR Realty is co-developing the building with Hines, who is also behind the nearby MoMA Tower at 53 East 53rd Street. Interiors at 100 East 53rd Street will be handled by William T. Georgis.

Norman Foster’s latest: The art of concealment on Lex?

Quote:
No developer who truly respected architecture would release a rendering like the one for One Hundred East Fifty Third Street that Aby Rosen has chosen to share with the world. By only offering us this restricted and partial view for now, he seems like someone with something to hide. Is he withholding the full view because he thinks it is so good? Possibly, but not likely.

This latest project is the work of Sir Norman Foster, who has been quite active in New York City in recent years and whose design ranges from masterful to mediocre to just plain dull. His best work is in London: the Great Court at the British Museum is a miracle of modern design, while his iconic Gherkin Building and London City Hall are brilliant in overall conception, even if their actually fabrication feels a little skimpy. In New York, he is more apt to range from mediocre to dull, from the respectable Hearst Tower and the upcoming 425 Park Avenue and 2 World Trade Center (if it ever is built), to the humdrum eight-story Sperone Westwater Gallery on the Bowery and the even-more-blah 551 West 21st Street.

His latest project, formerly known as 610 Lexington Avenue, looks likely to err on the side of corporate respectability, like the Hearst Tower. With 94 condo units, it appears from the rendering to consist of a sequence of bays running up the length of the building. These are divided up into triangulated modules separated from one another by a white trim and are, on the basis of the rendering, the best part of the design. Its eventual success will lie, of course, in the execution — even the best design can be vitiated by value engineering.

Taken together, however, the modules constitute a curtain wall of sorts, but because they project from the surface at an angle, each window has a view in two directions simultaneously. Beyond that variant on the classic curtain wall—which may have interesting implications as real estate and as inhabitable space in a city where flat facades favor only a unidirectional view—the design looks good enough, but it hardly promises to be as remarkable as Lord Foster’s best British work. As to the ultimate success of the design, we may not know until it is approaching completion, and by then it may be too late.

Happy to see this finally going up. I work across the street and it's just been an empty lot for so long.

Project is from 2008 too. Glad it survived the recession and made it. The height is very impressive too. Should be noticeable, even if its kinda a filler.

Making decent progress. Core forms on the third floor are progressing nicely on this as of this afternoon.

Some info on the layout. Colors change indicates a transition to a new part of use in the tower.

===================

Aby Rosen’s RFR plans $763M condo offering at 100 East 53rd

Quote:
Aby Rosen’s long-stalled condominium development at 100 East 53rd Street will have 99 units, for a total sellout of more than $750 million, according to plans filed with the Attorney General’s office. The Norman Foster-designed tower, slated to rise 61 stories, will also have two duplex apartments that will take up two full floors each, according to the most recent plans filed with the city’s Department of Buildings.

RFR plans to have a restaurant on the first and second floors of the tower, which is adjacent to Rosen’s iconic Seagram Building.

100 East 53rd will have a lounge and library on the third floor, as well as a swimming pool, gym and yoga studio on the fourth floor. Floors five through nine will have three apartments each, and floors 12 through 21, as well as floors 23 through 38, will have two apartments each.

The duplex condos are on floors 10 and 11 and on floors 58 and 59. Compass will market the units and SLCE is the architect of record.

The project’s been in the works for a long time. In 2007, RFR borrowed $144.2 million with the intention to build a hotel-condo project, but the development stalled during the credit crisis. In 2012, RFR subsequently borrowed a $144 million loan against the site to get it back on track.

Last year, RFR brought Hines and China Vanke, the largest publicly traded developer in China, on board as partners. Earlier this month, Chinese bank China Cinda closed on the acquisition of a majority stake in the project for $140.5 million.

The developers broke ground on the project in February 2014.
