  • 415 8th Ave @ 31st St.

    From another blog zone...
    NY OBSEVRER... Published: November 21, 2007

    The New York-based Savanna Real Estate Fund is planning a 100,000 square foot mixed-use building across the street from the Farley Post Office and Pennsylvania Station, a corner site home to a parking lot.

    The site, 415 Eighth Avenue, is on the southwest corner of Eighth Avenue and 31st Street, a location certain to benefit from the gargantuan amount of development – about $14 billion – envisioned for the immediate area by the state, Vornado Realty Trust, and Related Companies.

    Savanna purchased the site for $27,850,000 in early September, according to property records, after the site appeared to have been privately owned since at least the 1980s. The development plans for the site were announced by Bensen & Associates’ Adelaide Polsinelli, who brokered the sale. Other representation in the deal came from the Laurie Grasso of Herrick Feinstein for the buyers and Seligson, Rothman & Rothman’s Aaron Seligson for the sellers.

    Check out the picture:

    Could be cool to have something there (less trash and rats), but again bo-rang architecture galore.
    So for anyone SW of this corner, as I realized this morning, kiss your sweet ESB view and morning sunshine goodbye.
    And for anyone who will surely say this means progress, and "the future!" clap or something...or do a cartwheel. Whichever.

    Aah, progress.
    More mind-shattering noise and
    lung-clogging dust.

      Yeah dust, noise, purloined parking spaces, etc for a goofy pseudo-luxurious 2 syllable named building selling a "lifestyle" featuring crappy "architecture" aka glass-box boringness from RISD rejects. More like barfchitecture.
