The Green Building Worldwide - 2nd Annual Regional Transportation Symposium, Capital Projects

August 22, 2019

New York City and State Government . Real Estate . Airports . Planning . Transportation . Funding . Policy . Technology . Design Build . Resiliency . Equity

Join municipal agencies and private entities as they speak to major capital projects, design, infrastructure and resiliency. Our 2nd Annual Regional Transportation Symposium will be held on  August 22nd featuring the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey  and the New York City Department of Transportation.  Space is limited, be sure to register.

 

Transportation, a critical component of  infrastructure, is increasingly taking center stage. Private developers and local authorities are collaborating to make sure there is adequate infrastructure to accommodate mobility in and out of growth areas; and, restore dilapidated bridges, rail and commuter terminals.  Resiliency measures and equity are also pivotal concerns, during Sandy, 8.5 million public transit riders, 4.2 million drivers, and 1 million fliers were affected because vehicular tunnels, subway stations, roads, and airports were all flooded. To help prevent this in the future, the city is now working with many agencies to improve transportation responses to major events through regular resiliency planning exercises.

 

Featured Speakers: in formation

The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey

The New York City Department of Transportation

 

The Panel Discussion:

JFK International Airport Redevelopment

Newark Liberty International Airport

LaGuardia Airport update

The Port Master Plan and Regional Economic Generation

Hudson Gateway Tunnel

Brooklyn Queens Expressway Triple Cantilever

Economic Opportunities and MWBE Participation

The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey

The Port Authority oversees much of the regional transportation infrastructure, including bridges, tunnels, airports, and seaports, within the geographical jurisdiction of the Port of New York and New Jersey. The Port Authority of NY & NJ builds, operates, and maintains critical transportation and trade assets. Its network of aviation, rail, surface transportation and seaport facilities. The Port Authority also owns and manages the 16 acre World Trade Center site, home to the iconic One World Trade Center.

The New York City Department of Transportation

The New York City Department of Transportation, NYCDOT, oversees one of the most complex urban transportation networks in the world and responsible for the management of much of  transportation infrastructure.  DOT staff manages an annual operating budget of 900 million dollars and a five year 10.1 billion dollar capital program, along with 6,000 miles of streets and highways, 12,000 miles of sidewalk, and 794 bridges and tunnels, including the iconic East River bridges. Other agencies that operate road bridges in New York include the MTA, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the New York State DOT.

THE PROJECTS: 

JFK International Airport Redevelopment

JFK Airport will get a 10B dollar, cutting-edge transformation, with proposed interconnected terminals and expanded roadways.The revamp will introduce an interconnected terminal layout, centralized parking lots, increased flights, new lanes on the chronically congested Van Wyck Expressway, and “state-of-the-art security” that would include facial recognition technology. 

Newark Liberty International Airport

Newark Liberty International Airport  is one of the major airports of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and is located in the U.S. State of New Jersey. The airport straddles the boundary between the cities of Newark and Elizabeth, the former of which is the most populous city in the state. The airport is owned jointly by the cities of Elizabeth and Newark and leased to and operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. It is one of three major airports serving the New York metropolitan area, the others being John F. Kennedy International Airport and LaGuardia Airport.

LaGuardia Airport update

Over the next several years, LaGuardia Airport will be completely rebuilt under a plan from Cuomo and his Airport Advisory Panel. The governor pushed to build a Central Terminal Building with a world class  main entrance, more mass transit connections and a better utilization of LaGuardia’s relatively small real estate to an estimated 8 billion dollars. The project will link all four terminals through one new facility that will be built 600 feet closer to the adjacent Grand Central Parkway. Pushing the airport toward the highway will make way for 2 miles of aircraft taxiways to improve plane movement, which would then reduce delays, according to the governor.

Hudson Gateway Tunnel

The Gateway Program is the planned phased expansion and renovation of the Northeast Corridor rail line between Newark, New Jersey and New York City, New York. The right of way runs between Newark Penn Station and New York Penn Station.  The project would build new rail bridges in the New Jersey Meadowlands and new tunnels under Bergen Hill (Hudson Palisades) and the Hudson River, as well as expand NYP through conversion of part of the James Farley Post Office into a train station and construction of a terminal annex. A program to provide desperately needed repairs to the Hudson Gateway Tunnel, which was damaged during Hurricane Sandy. The tunnel repairs are estimated at 13 billion dollars, with a total project cost estimated at 30 billion dollars. 

 

Brooklyn Queens Expressway Triple Cantilever:

The Triple Cantilever, 0.4 miles long, was built between 1944-1948 and carries the BQE on two cantilevers. The New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT) is leading the effort to address the deteriorating conditions of the bridges, roadways, and ancillary structures, with cost estimates for the project running at 1.7 billion dollars.

Capital Project Roundtable, NYCs newly adopted $14 billion Plan for High Performance Buildings

June 26, 2019

The Roundtable the industry demanded.  Join the roundtable discussion designed to deliver the business and performance construct for NYCs newest 14 billion dollar plan which will directly impact the real estate industry, energy sourcing and funding.  An integral component of the discussion will be the Climate Mobilization Act and the examination the Bank of America Tower, the Empire State Office Building and Hudson Yards.  This Act, in order to succeed, must drive unprecedented advances in infrastructure, technology, renewable resources, funding, and collaboration. 

 

Special Presentation: The roundtable will examine the foreseeable effects of the newly minted plan and Climate Mobilization Act, CMA, on buildings similar to the Bank of America Tower and the Empire State Building. We will also delve into the Hudson Yards development as an impact model for CMA components.

 

One Bryant Park, Bank of America Tower

The Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park was designed to set a new standard in high performance buildings, for both the office workers who occupy the tower and for a city and country who have awakened to the modern imperative of sustainability. The vision at the occupant scale was to create the highest quality modern workplace by emphasizing daylight, fresh air, and an intrinsic connection to the outdoors. The Bank of America Tower is the first commercial high rise in the United States to earn LEED Platinum certification. 

 

Empire State Building

The Empire State Building is a 102 story skyscraper in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. It was designed by Shreve, Lamb and Harmon and completed in 1931. The building has a roof height of 1,250 feet and stands a total of 1,454 feet tall, including its antenna.The building sits on 79,288 square feet, 7,340 square meters, or approximately two acres and contains 2.7 million square feet of office space, making it one of the largest office buildings in the world.  The Empire State Office Building recently performed a groundbreaking energy efficiency retrofit which may serve as a leading lesson on the economic benefits of intelligent investment in sustainability. 

 

Hudson Yards

Hudson Yards is a real estate development in the Chelsea and Hudson Yards neighborhoods of Manhattan, New York City. It is the largest private real estate development in the United States by area and one of the biggest projects in New York since Rockefeller Center was completed 80 years ago. When completed, the site will include more than 18 million square feet of commercial and residential space; more than 100 shops; a collection of restaurants; approximately 4,000 residences.

Capital Project Roundtable: NYCHA 2.0 . Stakeholders . Comprehensive Plan, Capital Project, Technology, Impact

May 16, 2019

New announcement The Congress just allocated an additional 549 million dollars for Capital funding for Facade Repair, Elevator, Heating Systems, and Apartment Rehab, an increase of 233 million dollars more than anticipated.

Join the Green Building Worldwide Capital Project Roundtable for a keystone discussion on NYCHA Repairs, Priorities and How this all fits into the broader context of Affordable Housing, Zoning and Sustainability.

NYCHAs aging infrastructure has been a primary challenge to increasing energy efficiency and lowering emissions. Most boilers and ancillary heating systems within NYCHAs portfolio are reaching and exceeding their useful lives ranging from 20 to 40 years. 92 percent of the portfolio has steam distribution systems.

 

Already on track is 6.385 billion dollars in planned commitments for infrastructure improvements, major modernization, other systemic upgrades, repair, resiliency, and fortification of developments damaged or impacted by Superstorm Sandy.  Additionally, in FY2020, 43.1 million dollars will be available, to support heating plant upgrades at additional developments.

 

New York City has set as a goal to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40 percent by 2030 and  80 percent by 2050.  The integration of energy efficient infrastructure and technology has been at the center of capital project development for NYCHA housing.   There are a multitude of opportunities for implementing energy conservation measures that would both lower the operating costs throughout NYCHAs portfolio as well as improving the standard of living for its residents.

 

Also, as NYCHA shifts towards a largely Cloud First strategy, the implementation of technology in line with IT application and hardware infrastructure will be an imperative for the Authority. 

 

Talking Points: Portfolio wide Measures

  • Overview of current Building Conditions and Capital Planning inclusive of infrastructure improvements, major modernization, other systemic upgrades, repair, resiliency, and fortification of developments damaged or impacted by Superstorm Sandy.  new

  • Overview of Energy Conservation Measures within NYCHA portfolio including the Implementation

East New York

The East New York Neighborhood Plan is a comprehensive neighborhood plan to promote affordable housing preservation and development, encourage economic development, create pedestrian friendly streets, and invest in community resources to support the long-term growth and sustainability of East New York, Cypress Hills and Ocean Hill. 

 

Jerome Avenue

The Jerome Avenue Neighborhood Plan is a collective body of recommendations and investments act were generated over a multi year , inclusive planning process.  Already, the City has begun to invest heavily in the Southwest Bronx, and will continue to do so, committing over a 1 billion dollars in investment including 800 million dollars in housing preservation and new construction, two new schools, and additional 189 million dollars of capital projects, workforce strategies, and other programs. The plan encompasses a 92 block section of Jerome Avenue and many surrounding streets in the South Bronx.

 

Far Rockaway

The zoning change promises to inject 288 million dollars worth of investment, including 128 million dollars in city funding, into a long-blighted stretch of Far Rockaway. The city estimates that the new land use rules will pave the way for 3,100 new apartments, 165,000 square feet of retail and 81,000 square feet of community space in the 23 block rezoning area.

 

Greater East Midtown

The Greater East Midtown Rezoning will foster the new, modern office buildings needed to spur jobs and keep New York a global capital of commerce.

Part One, The Redevelopment of Queens: Expansive Development and Infrastructure Projects

July 19, 2018

Join Green Building Worldwide for the reboot of the Queens Capital Project Symposium scheduled for July 19, 2018 in Midtown.  Seats are limited.

 

Many Queens New York neighborhoods, historically, known for high rate of foreclosure and low rate of economic development are now realizing new residential and commercial development en masse and reaping the benefits of municipal investments, the affordability mandate and the executed rezoning.

PROJECTS TO BE DISCUSSED: 

JFK Airport

Jamaica Infrastructure Improvements

The Crossing at Jamaica

Station Plaza

Hunters Point South

Willets Point Development

Sunnyside Yard

 

JFK Airport Redevelopment: JFK Airport will get a 10B dollar, cutting-edge transformation, with proposed interconnected terminals and expanded roadways.The revamp will introduce an interconnected terminal layout, centralized parking lots, increased flights, new lanes (in both directions) on the chronically congested Van Wyck Expressway, and “state-of-the-art security” that would include facial recognition technology. 

 

Jamaica Infrastructure Improvements: The Jamaica Infrastructure Projects are three key infrastructure improvements that will create attractive new gateways to Downtown Jamaica. These projects will set the stage for re-development and leverage the PANYNJ's 350M dollar investment in the 2003 Air Train Terminal at Jamaica Station. 

 

The Crossing at Jamaica:  One will rise 14 stories while the second will rise 26 stories and combined, the building will bring a total of 669 apartments along with retail space and 187 parking spaces. Being built at an estimated cost of 300 million dollars, the project has been previously billed as one of the largest investments in the area in decades.

 

Station Plaza: The developer for this project picked up the 50,000-square-foot development site for 19.5 million dollars from the Greater Jamaica Development Corporation this year. Station Plaza is the realignment of Archer Avenue at Sutphin Boulevard to provide space for a transit plaza where thousands of transit users can change modes in safe and comfortable conditions. The project will include widened sidewalks, additional bus lanes, and plazas with relocated subway exits, new light, public information systems, landscaping and bus shelters. Combined, these improvements create an appropriate public setting for the newly renovated Long Island Rail Road Jamaica Station and the AirTrain connection to JFK.

 

Hunters Point South: A 500 million dollar, two-towered development that will hold 1,120 apartments total, of which 900 will be designated permanently affordable.There will also be as much as 40,000 square feet of retail and community facility space. According to the WSJ, there may be a medical facility, grocery store, or space dedicated to arts and culture. 

 

Willets Point Development: After nearly being derailed, this megaproject is back on. Related Companies and the Wilpon family (which owns the New York Mets) are slated to helm this redevelopment project. This time, the project will include 1,100 affordable apartments, while plans for a 200-store shopping mall have been scrapped. Current estimates for the project come in at 385 million dollars. 

 

Sunnyside Yard: This is the city’s 19 billion dollar proposal to deck over exposed rail yards in Sunnyside to create a platform for parks, schools, retail, and thousands of new apartments. Practice for Architecture and Urbanism (PAU), the studio founded by former SHoP Architects partner Vishaan Chakrabarti, has been tapped through a request for proposals to conceptualize what the Queens megaproject could look like,

NYC's Merging Corridors: Rezoned for Economic Development, Infrastructure and Parity

May 31, 2018

Join GBW and special presenter, the NYC Department of City Planning, for  a one of  a kind Capital Project Symposium discussing the 460 plus New York City blocks rezoned  to advance housing, development, industry, infrastructure and transportation thus far.  The symposium will be held on Thursday, May 31, 2018. 

 

New York City has committed billions of dollars through the rezoning of  key corridors  for the activation of affordable housing, economic engines, and the expansion of infrastructure in response to population and industry growth.  These rezoned sectors will have historic and deliberate impact on massive sections, and subsequent ripple effect on every corner of our city. 

 

Featured Speaker:

New York City Department of City Planning

Come out and hear directly from an outstanding senior planner within the New York City Department of City Planning charged with providing supervision and oversight to team members in one of the largest DCP initiatives to date.  

 

The Talking Points:

Infrastructure and Development Commitments

Economic Development Focus and Initiatives, including commitments to MWBEs new

 

The Topic: 

Overview of the 92 Block Jerome Avenue Rezoning Plan

Overview of 280 Block Far Rockaway Rezoning Plan

Overview of the 96 Block East Harlem Rezoning Plan

 

About The Zones:

The Jerome Avenue Rezoning Plan updated

The Jerome Avenue Neighborhood Plan is a collective body of recommendations and investments act were generated over a multi year , inclusive planning process.  Already, the City has begun to invest heavily in the Southwest Bronx, and will continue to do so, committing over a 1 billion dollars in investment including 800 million dollars in housing preservation and new construction, two new schools, and additional 189 million dollars of capital projects, workforce strategies, and other programs. The plan encompasses a 92 block section of Jerome Avenue and many surrounding streets in the South Bronx. 

 

Far Rockaway Rezoning Plan

The rezoning, a 288 million dollar initiative, will include 126 million dollars from the city focused on reconstructing areas in downtown Far Rockaway. Private and federal dollars will augment the projects undertaken within the zone.  Some of the funding will go toward the 101st Police Precinct, upgrading sewer infrastructure and setting up real time displays for bus arrivals.

 

This is the first rezoning to hit Far Rockaway since 1961, and the EDC estimates that, in addition to the more than 3,000 new residential units, it will also create approximately 250,000 square feet of commercial space, 86,000 square feet of community space and 30,000 square feet of open space. 

 

East Harlem Rezoning Plan

East Harlem is the fourth neighborhood to undergo the land use review procedure as a part of the effort to build and secure over 200,000 units of affordable housing in New York City by 2020. Other than the new development limits, city officials included a 222 million dollar investment into improving the lives of current residents, including a 50 million dollar concession for the New York City Housing Authority East Harlem buildings and 102 million dollars for a new public park between East 125th Street and East 132nd Street. The 96-block rezoning is expected to create 1,288 affordable housing units on private sites. Under MIH, the city estimates that at least 20 to 25 percent of all new residential units in East Harlem will be affordable.

 

About the New York City Department of City Planning

The Department of City Planning, DCP, is NYCs primary land use agency and is instrumental in designing the City’s physical and socioeconomic framework. NYCEDC administers the payment of these funds, which must be used to help underwrite the costs of capital projects that provide the City with a public benefit. 

 

City planning lies at the nexus of many disciplines. It blends theoretical insights from the social sciences and natural sciences with urban, planning, and design concepts. To fulfill its mission, DCP draws on a variety of geographic, functional and technical talent to:

  • Capitalize on NYCs competitive advantages, including its built environment, natural setting, diversity and standing as a robust center of commerce and culture, and advance regulatory changes when appropriate

  • Encourage high quality, sustainable development that respects and enhances its context

  • Promote neighborhood economic development

  • Serve as technical support to the City Planning Commission in its annual review of approximately 450 land use applications and ensure that processes, reviews and approvals are efficient, consistent, and user-friendly

NYC Ferry, Hornblower

NYC Ferry Operated by Hornblower provides New Yorkers a dependable way to commute and connect in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx along the East River.The NYC Department of Economic Development shared that the  NYC ferry far exceeded its ridership expectations in 2017. The ferry service had predicted 2.1 million riders by the end of 2017, but in fact saw 2.89 million riders by the end of last year. The city ordered the first round of these 349 passenger boats in September 2017, at a cost 7 million to 7.5 million dollars, and the increasing ridership levels suggest it has been worth the investment.  NYC Ferry has proven to be more popular than we could have hoped, and nearly three million riders agree it is the best way to get around the city, said James Patchett, the president of NYCEDC. Now we are looking forward to launching two more routes in 2018, helping even more riders connect to good jobs and opportunities.
