New York City isn’t quite ready for a timber tower, but Brooklyn is about to take a crack at low-rise office and retail buildings made of wood. Flank, an architecture and development firm, is building two timber-filled commercial buildings at 320 and 360 Wythe Avenue in South Williamsburg. The firm is billing the projects as the first wooden structures to be built in the city in nearly a century.
One way or another, Gamma Real Estate is confident that it will get to build an 800-foot tower on the Upper East Side. The question is when: If the City Council grandfathers the project, the developer can avoid a rezoning and continue working on the project uninterrupted. If not, Gamma will head to the city’s Board of Standards and Appeals (BSA). The latter option will add several months to the project’s timeline.
Isaac Hager’s Cornell Realty Management just landed a $64 million construction loan for a six-story mixed-use project in Williamsburg. Madison Realty Capital provided the financing for 200 Kent Avenue, where Cornell plans to build a 117,00-square-foot office and retail project. Trader Joe’s has long been rumored to be the anchor tenant for the retail portion of the project, and the store appears in documents filed with the city’s Department of Finance.
"The only upshot to taking out the grandfather clause would be to punish us monetarily and displace workers who don't deserve it," Jonathan Kalikow says. He said the foundation will be done in three weeks
Ben Kallos says the grandfather clause might be a "red herring" for extending the rezoning process for another two weeks. Which would give Gamma more time to finish its foundation and that would likely mean they could avoid the rezoning
Some of the testimony on the Sutton Place rezoning application is reminding me of "Airplane!" Officials say Gamma knew that the rezoning application was in the works when they took over the property. "They knew the risk!" https://t.co/qu5GdeQZFc
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
