    Construction at One57

    From Luxury Listings NYC: A fire on Saturday at the mega-luxe One57 development in Midtown — where an investor famously purchased the building’s penthouse for a whopping $90 million — became the target of a complaint filed with the state Supreme Court on Sunday. Michael Hurwitz, a lawyer who lives just behind the super-tall building, filed court documents as the sole plaintiff seeking a temporary restraining order barring Extell Development, the construction company Lend Lease and a collection of yet-to-be-identified firms also working on the project from access and further construction.

    Extell Development is facing a $27 million lawsuit from contractor Five Star Electric Corp., which claims non-payment for work done at the One57 hotel condo site — the location where a tower crane collapsed following Hurricane Sandy.

    In the suit filed March 7 in Manhattan Supreme Court, Five Star claims it signed a contract for the project with Extell in 2010, through its construction manager Bovis Lend Lease LMB Inc. (now known as Lend Lease). The development was then known as Carnegie Tower, a 76-story hotel and luxury residential building, at 157 West 57th Street, in Manhattan. [more]

    WEEKENDEDITION Affordable housing advocates, activists fighting gentrification and politicians have all, at one point or another, wagged their fingers at super-rich foreign natives that snatch up luxury condos for staggering sums. But Toronto-native and West 57th Street-condo-buyer, Diane Francis, claims that it is precisely foreign buyers like herself that “are the solution, not the problem, to New York’s budget.”  [more]

    Gary Barnett of Extell Development took something of a pummeling at yesterday’s panel of New Yorkers concerned about the shadows that rising skyscrapers will cast over Central Park. The verbal attacks were not overly surprising, considering Barnett was the sole defender of the construction of the towers. [more]

    Sponsor units at Extell Development’s trophy residential tower One57 have finally been listed on StreetEasy. Four units were listed for sale by the developer on Tuesday, asking between $18.85 million and $32.75 million, the listings website shows.

    The move by Extell to list the units publicly represents a turnaround in the marketing of the building. Since One57 launched sales in 2011, the developer has famously eschewed listing units on broker databases, such as the Real Estate Board of New York’s Residential Listing Service (RLS), On-Line Residential or sites like StreetEasy.

    The view from One57

    Extell Development reportedly typically forbids buyers from flipping contracts before closing and from trying to sell units until a year after purchase. But it seems that the developer has loosened the restrictions at One57.

    Last week, Tao Liu of Shanghai listed a one-bedroom condominium at the building, as The Real Deal first reported. He paid $3.56 million for the unit in April 2012, but listed it for $6 million, or about $5,700 per square foot. [more]

    If city agencies and community groups were granted more authority on air rights transfers for all new skyscrapers, it would unnecessarily add more hurdles to the approvals process, writes Reuters finance journalist Felix Salmon.

    Salmon’s column was directed at New York Times architecture critic Michael Kimmelman and other writers who advocated limiting the role of private builders and expanding the public review component in the construction of tall buildings in New York City. [more]
