NEW YORK | 501 9th Ave. | FT | 12 FLOORS


Rendering for 501 Ninth Avenue over „The Real Deal“ (LinkedIn, Archimaera Architecture PC)

„ On a large, horseshoe-shaped assemblage in Hudson Yards, developer ZD Jasper has secured $103 million to build a 158-unit condominium.

Construction lending was led by Los Angeles-based Preferred Bank, records show. The project includes three 12-story buildings expected to total 220,000 square feet at 501 Ninth Avenue, between West 37th and West 38th streets.

ZD Jasper, founded by Tom Wu, expects the total cost of the development to be about $200 million with a completion date in 2025. The development firm’s vice president, Jasper Wu, wrote on LinkedIn that the project will be a passive house condo, the first of its kind in New York City.
Archimaera Architecture is the architect of record. The project, just west of the Garment District, is ZD’s first ground-up effort outside of Queens.

No condominium offering plan at the project’s address is on file with New York Attorney General’s real estate office, but the expiry of New York’s 421a tax abatement program for new rentals makes it more likely that for the foreseeable future, New York City apartment projects will be for-sale units. Condos and co-ops still have a property tax break program, and it does not require any income-restricted units.„

Is this a two-phase project? Or is it managed by the DOB under two addresses?

The latter

This one will be a double cantilever

Its unfortunate the developer wasnt able to get the 2 remaining tenemant buildings because it will be difficult to build anything because of those 2 overhead cantilevers, not that its not possible, but it would probably be best for the current building to just continue in the space should they ever be bought out.

I also noticed that the symmetrical component of this development at 489 9th Avenue is now under construction. Both components on each end of the block will cantilever over the older building in the middle of the block.

The facade looks relatively nice from the 2 frame panels that are up.

Still completely annoyed by the 2 tenements sandwiched in the middle.

Here’s a closer angle I captured at the end of June. Forgot to post it here.

Nice shot of the new facade panel. That looks solid, heavy, and monolithic: probably some sort of engineered stone. Next step will need to be some sort of heavy thick triple pane glass windows, with a heavy metal frame: the traffic noise from 9th Avenue is going to be a constant, and into the late hours of night.

This facade treatment is a very smart choice; it looks great, and will be a much needed massive barrier wall separating the apartments inside from the clamoring world outside. :star_struck:

Take a look at the traffic in the post above…

I think that is a particularly noisy corner - perhaps a line-up for a right turn off 9th Avenue.

This is an interesting project, even with the odd cantilevers it is Capital A architecture.

Massive grid lock here all-the-time…

The place where the cars line up to enter the Lincoln Tunnel is one of the “cloacas” of Midtown.
