Fresh off the victory of NYC's biggest deal ever, the $90 million penthouse sale at One57, Extell's Gary Barnett has renewed energy for big plays in NYC real estate. Big plays with the potential to enrage fellow developers. Just what we like to see on the Tuesday after a long weekend! Barnett is reviving a 56-story office tower once planned for the east side of 11th Avenue between 33rd and 34th streets, according to the Post. And the Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed building (rendered at right) will be called One Hudson Yards?even though it isn't part of Related's Hudson Yards megaproject. (It is within the city-designated Hudson Yards District.) Uh oh. Barnett swears he isn't "interested in steaming up anybody," including Related head Stephen Ross. But Ross is already accusing Barnett of "trying to deceive tenants and the public," so we don't think Barnett's denials will change anything here. Maybe Barnett was just trying to keep up the One theme of building naming? Barnett tells the Post construction on One Hudson Yards could begin by the end of the year, with tenants doing buildouts in 2015.
