Silverstein is building 3 WTC concrete-first Iron workers union formerly resisted unusual “composite” design

At 3 World Trade Center, Silverstein Properties is employing an uncommon construction method once shunned by union work爱上海同城对对碰 爱上海同城论坛ers.

The developer is building the 80-story office tower using a “composite” structural design: a concrete core and a steel perimeter.

The technique was long resisted 爱上海同城手机版 新爱上海同城对对碰论坛by Local 40 of the International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental and Reinforcing Iron Workers, who balked at the idea of working belo爱上海同城 爱上海w a concrete pouring team.

The novel approach means the building’s topping out will be marked with a bucket of concrete signed by workers, rather than the traditional topmost steel beam, the New York Times reported.

But the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 demonstrated the vulnerability of skyscrapers built with steel-framed cores.

The core of 2.8 million-square-foot Rogers Stick Harbour Partners-designed tower is three feet thick on average, and reinforced with steel bars.

Midtown East Rezoning

From left Midtown East rezoning area, Dan Garodnick and John Banks

The Real Estate Board of New York has a few issues with the proposal to rezone Midtown East. Namely, the organization thinks the buildings should be bigger, the residential restrictions are unnecessary and the city should take as small a cut as possible from air right sales.

Representativ上海千花社区 上海千花网交友es from REBNY spoke at a meeting discussing the rezoning Thursday, where they asked the New York City Planning Commission to consider an additional 10 percent in floor area to as-of-right buildings throughout the district. The current proposal, which was released in August, could already add 6.5 million square feet in additional office space to the area.

REBNY also said limiting residential construction in the district was unnecessary. The organization took issue with the proposal s condition that residential development can only take up 20 percent of total FAR.

Our members are concerned that the 20 percent ca阿爱上海同城 阿拉爱上海同城p is insufficient to support new commercial development, one representative said during the meeting. Allowing for a greater amount of residential development would serve as a catalyst for commercial develop上海龙凤论坛 新上海贵族宝贝论坛ment.

Another issue that came up, cited by REBNY and others, was the sale of air rights at landmarked buildings in the district. Representatives for the Archdiocese of New York and the Central Synagogue — both of whom own substantial air rights in the district  — expressed concern over the city s plan[……]

Historian gifts $4M Manhattan property to Native Americans Jean-Louis Goldwater Bourgeois is the son of the famed artist Louise Bourgeois

Jean-Louis Goldwater Bourgeois and 6 Weehawken Street

The past doesn t sit right with architectural historian Jean-Louis Goldwater Bourgeois. And now, he says he is doing his part to make amends.

Bourgeois is in the process of transferring the deed of his $4 million West Village home to a Native American group.

“I have a romance with the history of the city, and I have been generally appalled that the land that the city is on has been taken by whites,” he told the Post. This building is the trophy from major theft. It disgusts me.”

Bourgeois is t新上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝交流区he son of the late sculptor阿爱上海同城 阿拉爱上海同城 Louise Bourgeois and has owned the 1834 three-floor clapboard house at 6 Weehawken Street since 2006, when it was bought for $2.2 million. The house will now benefit a nonprofit controlled by the Lenape tribe, the original Manhattanites.

“[I feel] rage against what whites have done and some guilt, no, a lot of guilt, that I have profi上海龙凤论坛 新上海贵族宝贝论坛ted from this major theft. The right thing to do is to return it,” he told the Post.

Bourgeois recently returned to NYC after spending eight weeks in North Dakota protesting the proposed pipeline near the Sioux Standing Rock Indian Reservation. He says he is interested in giving land back to Native Americans after meeting Joseph Scabby Robe, a Cree Indian from Manit爱上海龙凤419桑拿 上海龙凤论坛sh1foba, Canada, during an Occupy Wall Street protes[……]

For months, it looked like Douglas Elliman was permanently rolling back some of its flashier marketing initiatives after more than a year of aggressive spending.

But, as it turns out, the brokerage was quietly gearing up for another push, while reassessing exactly how it should be spending its war chest.

上海千花网龙凤论坛 上海千花社区

Elliman is rolling out a new year-long marketi新上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝交流区ng program dubbed the “I爱上海 爱上海同城手机版t’s Time for Elliman” campaign, comprising television spots, print and digital advertising, billboards and event sponsorship. Elliman which counted only $100,000 in profits in the first quarter in part because of increased marketing initiatives is looking to solidify its presence in New York and make a bolder statement in new markets like Los Angeles and Aspen, the company told The Real Deal.

The campaign, which was produced with advertising firm Agency Sacks, will include giant billboards on the Long Island Expressway’s east and westbound approach to and from the Midtown Tunnel, as well on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. A redesigned Elliman logo will also wrap buses operated by the Hampton Jitney service.

In addition, the company will be advertising heavily at private and executive airports in Aspen and L.A., it said. The television spots, for which Elliman ma[……]

Jury says Wolkoff br新上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝交流区oke law by destroying 5Pointz graffiti F上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝indings will be recommendation to judge, who will issue a final verdict

The whitewashed graffiti at 5Pointz, David and Jerry Wolkoff

Developer Jerry Wolkoff was in the wrong when he destroyed a famed graffiti site in Queens, a Brooklyn jury 新上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝交流区ruled on Tuesday.

The 5Pointz graffiti artists had filed a lawsuit against Wolkoff for allegedly violating the Visual Artists Rights Act by whitewashing over the graffiti at his buildings at 45-46 Davis Street in Long Island City, which had previously served as a haven for graffiti artists, according to the New York Times. Wolkoff is now planning a $400 million residential complex at the 5Pointz site that will include 8,000 units across two towers.

The artists’ lawyer Eric Baum argued during the trial that Wolkoff did not give the proper 90-day notice to his clients before taking down their work, while Wolkoff’s lawyer David Ebert ar新上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝交流区gued that the Visual Artists Rights Act was immaterial to the case si阿拉爱上海同城 爱上海龙凤419桑拿nce the act was about art and not Wolkoff’s property.

After a three-week trial, the jury sided with the artists, but both sides agreed that their verdict will only serve as a recommendation to presiding Judge Frederic Block. Block has asked both sides to submit papers about the validity of the jury’s decision, after which he will make a final ruling and possibly order Wolkoff to pay damages to the artists.

WeWork London

WeWork is gobbling up space in central London at an insane rate Co-working company has doubled its footprint in the City of London over the last year

Adam Neumann and London

WeWork is now the largest corpo爱上海同城论坛 爱上海同城rate occupier in central London.

The $20 billion co-working startup has leased 2.6 million square feet of space since 2012, according to Cushman Wakefield figures cited by the Financial Times. That’s more than the 1.3 million square feet leased during that time by Google, Amazon’s roughly 1 million square feet and the 900,000 square feet leased by Deutsche Bank.

WeWork is second only to the U.K. government in the amount of space it occupies.

“Have they won the race for scale?” asked Elaine Rossall, head of UK上海夜网 阿爱上海同城 offices research and insight at Cushman Wakefield. “Yes, I don’t think anybody could keep up with their pace of growth.”

WeWork in 2016 ranked as the 11th-largest off上海同城对对碰交友社区 上海夜网论坛ice tenant in Manhattan, according t上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝o data CoStar provided to The Real Deal.

In the City of London, the company’s footprint more than doubled in 2017, and those familiar with WeWork’s strategy say it’s looking to capitalize on banks’ uncertainty over Brexit by leasing them flexible office space.

In October, WeWork agreed to buy the Blackstone Group s London office complex Devonshire Square for about $785 million.  [FT] – Rich Bockmann

New York Income Levels

Wealthy cities like LA, Miami and New York are attracting wealthier new residents The income gap between those coming and 上海千花网 爱上海同城对对碰going is rising considerably

Los Angeles and the Monopoly Man

Pricey American cities are starting to attract more residents who can afford those prices.

Research from economist Issi Romem has found that new residents coming into cities like New York, Miami and Los Angeles are making significantly more money 上海龙凤论坛 新上海贵族宝贝论坛than residents who are leaving, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The trend is strongest in San Francisco, where the people moving to the city and nearby Silicon Valley earned almost $20,000 a year more than the people who left the area in 2016. In Los Angeles, the income gap between people leaving and people arriving was $7,600.

Former industrial cities like Detroit and Cleveland are seeing the opposite trend, where new arrivals are m上海千花社区 上海千花网交友aking less than people leaving the cities.

New arrivals to cities also tend to be younger, more likely to rent and less likely to have children than people leaving.

Romem told the Journal the trend was somewhat concerning, as high housing prices driving aw上海龙凤论坛sh1f 上海龙凤论坛ay residents could lead to some lost opportunities.

“If people don’t live in the most productive coastal cities and end u爱上海同城对对碰 爱上海同城论坛p living somewhere else, they’re not going to be producing the same stuff,” he said. “There’s something lost there.” [WSJ] – Eddie Small
