Smile NEW YORK | 708 First Avenue (Con Ed) | 595 FT | 35 FLOORS

Solow to Build Towering Life Sciences and Biotechnology Center on the East
Side

Tuesday, July 25, 2017

Quote:
Plans have emerged for a 1.35 MSF life sciences and biotechnology center
along Manhattan’s east side. Proposed by Solow Realty & Development, the 35-floor building would rise at 708 First Avenue along Solow’s fallow
Turtle Bay South superblock. The new, state-of-the-art tower is being
designed by SOM, who was also responsible for crafting the 9-acre Turtle Bay South master
plan. So far, the only towers to rise on the original Con Ed footprint are
the American Copper Buildings and the nearly topped out 685 First Avenue.

I can not wrap my head around how Solow has not redeveloped this site, but sounds like it's inching forward.

Sheldon Solow’s empty east side site will gain 3 more condos, biotech office space

"...The Times interview makes clear that Solow and Soloviev are still looking ahead to the redevelopment of the vacant site across from 685 First. The site is poised to give rise to three residential buildings, originally conceived as rentals. Those buildings will now be condos, a move that will help the developer recoup its expenditures more quickly. The paper of record also notes that the site’s master plan still calls for a fourth structure, an office building, that the developer plans to lease to biotech companies..."

Title of thread should reflect probability of 3 towers on the various former Con-ED parcels.

I doubt this particular tower will be 595'. That's the height limit set for all the towers on this plot of land. This will probably be a thicc, glassy black box in the 350-450' range.

The UN Secretariat Building is 500 ft. So that rendering looks to be almost 700 ft. However the other rendering in the link looks only about 400 ft.

Everyone should read this, especially the last part about Soloviev's successful "breeding."
