Supertall Skyscrapers

The Hudson Yards Culture Shed, a yet-to-be-built arts and performance space at 10 Hudson Yards, just might wind up being the Batmobile of buildings. Dormant, it’s a glassy fortress. Animated, it will be able to extend its wings so-to-speak by sliding out a retractable exterior as a canopy.

The design is a window into the future of New York City construction — and the role technology will play. This isn’t to say that a fleet of moving buildings will invade New York anytime soon, but the projects of the future will be smarter, more adaptive and, of course, more awe-inspiring.

“I think you’re going to start having more and more facades that are more kinetic, that react to the environment,” said Tom Scarangello, CEO of Thornton Tomasetti, a New York-based engineering firm that’s working on the Culture Shed.

For example, Westfield’s Oculus, the World Trade Center’s new bird-like transit hub, features a retractable skylight whose function is more symbolic than practical: It opens only on Sept. 11.

As a whole, developers are moving away from the shamelessly reflective glass boxes of the past, instead opting for transparent-yet-textured buildings as well as slender, soaring towers à la Billionaires’ Row.

They are already beginning to experiment with different building materials, such as trading steel for wood in the city’s first “plyscraper,” which is being planned at 475 West 18th Street. And, sources say, developers will continue to find new ways of using a building’s “skin” to do some of the expensive work of heating and cooling, partly by allowing buildings to “breathe” through ventilated facades.

New York’s future buildings will also take less time to construct and design — through 3D modeling — with the click of a mouse. 

On the most basic level, these innovations are being driven by a necessity to deal with the city’s aging office stock. Much of Manhattan’s office space was built before 1970, a fact the business community argues puts New York at a disadvantage compared to other global cities such as Hong Kong and London.

In addition, many of today’s aging buildings have antiquated heating and energy systems.

In 2014, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that the city would aim to reduce its greenhouse emissions by 80 percent by 2050, building on Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s goal of 30 percent by 2030.

From a marketing standpoint, it’s also increasingly difficult for outdated office inventory, usually featuring low ceilings and intrusive interior columns, to compete with today’s modern buildings. Companies — whether they’re law firms, banks or media firms — are often looking for high ceilings, open space and ample natural light. The buildings that will dot New York’s future skyline will incorporate these qualities, through new design and innovation, but some experts predict they will also return to old-school prewar aesthetics, like brick and operable windows.

Irrational exuberance? Rising commercial real estate prices could signal warning for economy: Fed Reserve The advisory was part of the Fed’s inaugural financial stability report, meant to track potential weak links in the system

Ever-rising commercial real estate prices nationwide could be a risk to the stability of the U.S. financial markets, as they were in the last recession.

That was the assessment from the Federal Reserve in its inaugural financial stability report on Wednesday. Fed officials cited commercial real estate — in which purchase prices continue to outpace rent increases — as well as nonfinancial corporate borrowing as risks in its report, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Separately, some Fed officials have pointed out that the past two recessions were caused not by inflation, but by ass爱上海同城 爱上海et bubbles, such as real estate, which can be more difficult problems to solve.

The report is a result of efforts by former Fed Chairma上海夜网 阿爱上海同城n Ben Bernanke to monitor weak links in the financial system following the crisis. Now, it comes at a time when market indicators s上海夜网 阿爱上海同城how that economic growth is waning nationwide, as interest rates rise, according to the Journal.

It also raises less concern about risks stemming from household borrowing and in the banking sector. It said the chance that banks would misprice one asset such as real estate is low, according to the Journal.

The banking sector was well capitalized based on the report, though officials did express concern about上海贵族宝贝交流区 上海贵族宝贝论坛 the signs of increased borrowing at nonbank financial firms including hedge funds. This could be risky because nonbank lenders are increasingly making up a bigger share of the real estate lending landscape.

Housing Market Slump

Major global hous上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝ing markets are taking a hit. The ripple effect could be coming. The slowdown could have a broader global impact

Major global markets that once seemed insulated from the housing slump are getting caught in the slowdown.

Cities like London, Hong Kong and New York are grappling with a more tepid m上海千花网龙凤论坛 上海千花社区arket, Bloomberg reported. According to a Knight Frank index of high-end properties in 43 cities, luxury residential prices are growing at the slowest rate since 2012.

“If New York and London are catching a cold, the primacy is large enough that they might have an impact on the overall market,” Albert Saiz, a professor of urban economics and real estate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, told Bloomberg.

Hong Kong property values are seeing the longest decline since 2008, while Sydney is experiencing the worst real estate downturn since the 1980s. In outer London neighborhoods, prices fell for the first time since 2011 — and in Manhattan, the median condo price recently slid before $1 million for the first time in three years.

Because home values in global cities tend to move in tandem, shifts in these markets have the potential to create a broader ripple effect internationally, the report said.

The slowdown c阿爱上海同城 阿拉爱上海同城o上海夜网论坛 上海夜网mes after governments’ concerns about unsustainable price appreciation led to measures that sought to limit flows of international money. These moves to reduce foreign purchases have caused values to stall or fall in cities including Sydney, Melbourne, Toronto, Vancouver and Stockholm, according to the report.

In the U.S., developers’ focus on the high-end market has created an influx of million-dollar condos — while lower-end home pric爱上海同城 爱上海es have been driven up by limited supply. Now, in a climate of rising interest rates and financial market volatility, markets are slowing.

“For a long time, you could talk about big, important issues like Brexit or tax policy change in the U.S. each one of them seemed to hit a major market but didn’t really cross over,” said Dan Conn, chief executive officer of Christie’s International Real Estate. “What happened this year is that the trade battles started to make this, instead of a regional conversation, much more of a global conversation.

Plaza Hotel NYC

Plaza PH buyer spends $29M to expand aerie Anonymous owner snagged Christian Candy’s PH for $32.7M in 2017

1 Central Park South s penthouse

The owner of the Plaza Hotel s triplex penthouse is upsizing.

The anonymous investor — who scooped up the 6,300-square-food aerie from developer Christian Candy for $32.7 million in 2017 — just shelled out another $29 million for a duplex several floors below it, records show. The seller appears to be Jose Antonio Perez Helguera, managing director of Miami-based Agave Holdings. He purchased the unit for $22.9 million in 2008.

Combined, the two units span more than 10,000 square feet. According to filings with the city, the buyer — shielded by a shell company dubbed PH 2003 Unit LLC — obtained a $27 million mortgage from Maxim Credit Group. The loan covers both units and was signed by Duo Liu.

The newly-acquired duplex spans 3,974-square-feet with another 480 square feet of terrace sp爱上海同城手机版 新爱上海同城对对碰论坛ace. After Helguera purchased it in 2008, the penthouse underwent a floor-to-cei上海贵族宝贝交流区 上海贵族宝贝论坛ling renovation, taking many years to perfect, according to a listing provided by Sotheby s International Realty s Elizabeth Sample and Brenda Powers. The condo was originally listed last year asking上海贵族宝贝交流区 上海贵族宝贝论坛 $34.95 million.

It s unclear if and how the two units will be physically combined.

Before being purchased by its current owner, the Plaza s tri爱上海同城 爱上海plex penthouse lingered on the market for several years.

Candy originally listed the 6,300-square-foot condo for $59 million in 2013. After several price ch爱上海龙凤419桑拿 上海龙凤论坛sh1fops and broker swaps, the unit sold for $32.7 million. The developer of London s One Hyde Park paid $25.92 million for the pad in 2012. It was formerly owned by Russian oligarch Andrei Vavilov, who compared it to an attic.
