Michael Shvo advances plans to bring a posh hotel and condos to the vaunted Midtown building.
The Getty has begun getting its curtain wall.
The charges stem from his large art collection, and the Daily News reports that he is facing seven counts of criminal tax fraud, and could face up to 15 years in prison if he is convicted. It is likely that he will be released today on $500,000 bail.
A perk coming to The Getty, the High Line-hugging condo, is a new one: The building will be home to a museum featuring pieces from the $800 million private art collection of Blackstone Group vice-chairman.
It was just a few months ago that we last checked in with the Peter Marino-designed condo at 239 Tenth Avenue, and since then, the building has made significant progress. As of this week, it’s officially topped out.
A new photo study illustrates the transformation of a High Line site bound for condos over the past three years. The photos show how the construction has obscured and eclipsed a significant piece of NYC street art.
Midtown's Crown Building is the next impressive property to be eyed for high-end condos. Developer Michael Shvo is planning on bringing a luxury hotel and 23 apartments to the site.
The site at 239 Tenth Avenue in Chelsea has been home to a Getty gas station and an art installation full of fake sheep, and soon it'll be home to condo designed by Peter Marino Architects (you may know him as "the leather daddy of luxury").
Very little is known about this project which is now claiming a shorter height than the previously reported 990 feet which would have made it a supertall. The teaser website also reveals that the building will have three floors of amenities.
The mysterious skyscraper that's set to rise at 125 Greenwich Street just got a new round of funding, but that's not the exciting news. Curbed also has a new rendering of the supertall building, designed by Rafael Viñoly.
