This project saw the revitalisation of an inner city worker’s cottage. The renovation opened up the internal spaces, provided natural light and a direct connection to the outdoor area. Internally the house has been reconfigured, consolidating service areas around a small side courtyard and opening the living and dining space directly onto the new courtyard. The new extension has been raised to match the garden level, the internal floor change occurring at the threshold between the old and new parts of the house.Save this picture!Floor PlansThe renovations + additions took cues from the existing materiality of the building, in particular an exposed recycled brick wall. Recycled bricks were sourced to match and the wall was extended, adding texture and colour in an otherwise monochrome extension. New brickwork weaves through the project, beginning inside as the kitchen bench, wrapping along the length of the room as a ledge for artwork and modern essentials, snaking outside and bulging to form a BBQ bench and finally dipping down to create a long bench seat.Save this picture!© Justin AaronThe hit + miss brickwork of the courtyard will visually borrows space from the shared laneway beyond, while the brick on edge paving steps its way into the landscape; blurring the edges between garden + courtyard.Save this picture!SectionThe materiality of the bricks is contrasted by a folded white living, kitchen + dining space. The roof folds up to the north providing light and ventilation while also creating a sense of weightlessness which counteracts the solid brick base.

The design and construction are driven by two prominent features of the surrounding neighborhood: the architectural character of the streetscape, and eight acres of new, publicly accessible greenspace that defines the site. The resulting relationship between landscape and architecture make 550 Vanderbilt a fitting transition between the streetscape and the new park, designed to pull in nature at all scales for the health and well-being of its residents. It is a project that mediates between the smaller scale of the brownstone and the creation of a sustainable, higher density urbanism.Save this picture!© Chris Payne / EstoThe approach to 550 reveals a refined composition of massing, custom-fired brick inspired by nearby historic structures, and windows that evoke the detailing and proportions of neighboring residences. Window shrouds add depth to the facades, while custom planter boxes and biomimetic-patterned screens help residents connect to nature. The street wall rises 60’ and then begins a series of gradual terraces and setbacks, acknowledging the existing urban fabric of the historic Prospect Heights community, while marking the edge of Pacific Park and the vibrant streetscape of Vanderbilt Avenue.  Save this picture!© Chris Payne / EstoSave this picture!Courtesy of COOKFOX ArchitectsSave this picture!© Chris Payne / Esto550 Vanderbilt is part of the community of Prospect Heights; connections to the neighborhood street activity are paramount. Maisonettes on Dean Street add physical and visual connectivity to the sidewalk, while the main entrance lobby is fully transparent, allowing clear views to the park from the sidewalk. Natural materials of wood and stone create an inviting, tactile experience to transition residents from the street to their homes. The transition is reinforced on every floor, where overall planning has been configured to give all residents a view to the park through day-lit elevator vestibules. Within each residence, window proportions maintain a delicate balance between maximizing daylight and views to the surrounding neighborhood and providing a sense of enclosure that reinforces the exterior weight and solidity of a Brooklyn masonry building.Save this picture!© Chris Payne / EstoAll units in 550 Vanderbilt, ranging in size from efficient studios to three and four bedrooms, incorporate the same mature palette of whites, grays, Carrara marble, and warm, rich woods. Custom millwork, vanities, and sustainably sourced kitchen cabinetry add a level of detail to each unit, continuing a tradition of craft found in neighboring historic buildings. Sustainability and indoor air quality measures include FSC certified wood, low V.O.C. finishes, high-efficiency energy recovery ventilators, highly filtered fresh air in every residence, and a stormwater retention system. Save this picture!© Chris Payne / EstoProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse on the Cove / Stephenson Design CollectiveSelected ProjectsAndares Corporate / Sordo Madaleno ArquitectosSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Brooklyn, NY, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

Derrick Duncan: Jamaican immigrant & revolutionary

first_imgDerrick Duncan speaks at a protest in Brooklyn, N.Y., in 2000.It’s tragic when a person in his 40s dies suddenly of a mysterious illness. But it’s especially tragic when he is a working-class revolutionary, a staunch unionist, an immigrant from Jamaica who yearned to visit the motherland in Africa.Derrick Duncan met Workers World Party in 1995 at the annual Caribbean Day celebration held in Brooklyn, N.Y., during the Labor Day weekend. A flier about the fight to end the death penalty and save the life of political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal attracted him to the struggle. Always a fighter to end racism and police brutality, Duncan’s worldview expanded as he read Abu-Jamal’s essays about the prison-industrial complex and connected the dots to capitalism.Both John Parker in Los Angeles and Steven Ceci in Baltimore remember the enthusiasm and dedication Duncan brought to the mobilization in Los Angeles to save Mumia’s life and end the death penalty during protests at the Democratic National Convention in 2000. “As an oppressed person, Derrick was inspired by this great revolutionary,” Ceci told Workers World.“Derrick often made clear his opinion that lesbian and gay people must have the same rights as heterosexuals. And I’d call him a workaholic — that’s how strong his work ethic was.”A transporter at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, Duncan was a member of 1199, the Service Employees union. Anne Pruden remembers that after he was elected a delegate in the early 2000s, Duncan joined other Workers World members and friends to distribute fliers at monthly delegate assemblies.“Derrick had a working-class view of everything,” says John Parker. “That’s what attracted him to our politics. He was unabashedly biased in favor of the working class. And being an immigrant made him an internationalist.” Hillel Cohen, who leafleted 1199 meetings with Duncan, agrees: “Derrick’s experiences in life as a young immigrant worker won him to the struggle.”Donatien Bukuba, born in Burundi, shared the immigrant experience with Duncan: “We were both trying to make a living, often holding two jobs. When we didn’t have jobs, we would support each other. We took the politics of Workers World and the International Action Center and applied them to ourselves — the poor must work together to support each other.”Bukuba remembers the concern Duncan showed him at a rally demanding reparations for African Americans in Washington, D.C. a decade ago. “We were talking with a group of young, very militant Black men. Some of them wanted to confront the police. Derrick looked at me and said, ‘We don’t have green cards yet. Come over here so we don’t get arrested.’ The brother really cared for me.“I took him to visit my family from Africa in New York. He bonded with them. He was so excited to eat African food. My family was his family. When he became a citizen two years ago, the first thing he did was bring his 14-year-old daughter Dainia here. He said, ‘Now I can do things freely and have peace of mind.’ We talked about going to Africa together this November.”In addition to politics, Bukuba, Ceci and Duncan shared an interest in music, particularly reggae. “We wanted to take Bob Marley’s music and put it into action,” says Bukuba, who describes Duncan as very open minded. Parker remembers him as “very friendly, very sincere, very respectful, a warm person, humble and honest, who made an effort to make everyone comfortable. He had a good way of teaching — questioning and then giving his opinion.”Born on April 5, 1968, Duncan died of a lung infection on June 10. Cohen reports that Duncan’s brother said he died from exposure to a toxic substance that injured his lungs, which never recovered. Noting that such a condition is usually associated with asbestos or radiation, Cohen speculated that such exposure could have occurred while Duncan was remodeling his house in Brooklyn.Derrick Duncan will be remembered as an ardent working-class fighter against racism, police brutality and imperialism, particularly in Africa and the Caribbean, and for workers’ and women’s rights. Though his life was tragically cut short, Derrick’s determination to create a better world for his daughter and all the oppressed lives on.

Here’s what tenants pay at CIM & QSuper’s 1440 Broadway

first_img1440 Broadway and CIM Group’s Shaul Kuba (Photos via CBRE and Getty)Just south of Times Square, the 740,000-square-foot office building at 1440 Broadway was one of the last properties to be sold off as part of New York REIT’s liquidation.In 2017, the property was sold for $520 million to CIM Group, which manages the building, and Australian pension fund QSuper, which has a majority stake. The 25-story building’s occupancy was just 50 percent at the time of the sale, and has since risen to 93 percent — but there’s still work to be done.DBRS Morningstar analysts noted “several concerns about the current tenancy” in a recent report. WeWork, the largest tenant, has faced financial difficulties since before the pandemic, while several other tenants have put their spaces up for sublease.ADVERTISEMENTLast month, CIM lined up a three-year, $399 million CMBS refinancing for the building, as it plans to lease up vacant space, release dark space, and complete capital upgrades. Documents associated with the securitization provide an inside look at the property’s finances.As of December, the building was leased to seven major tenants — WeWork and Macy’s are the largest — and two small retailers. The average annual base rent is $64 per square foot, which is 16 percent below market, according to an appraisal cited by DBRS.The office tenant with the priciest rent, at $73 per square foot, is WeWork. The co-working firm’s lease commenced in 2019 and accounts for nearly half of the building’s rent roll. WeWork leases its space to enterprise tenants — companies of at least 1,000 employees — which currently include “two publicly traded Fortune 500 companies.”The second largest tenant, Macy’s, has been at the property since 1983 and now uses it as its online sales operations headquarters. Amid pandemic-related challenges, the retailer is marketing the space for sublease, and recently elected to prepay nearly $33 million in lease obligations, covering rent through expiry in 2024. However, the prepaid rent will have to be given back in the event that Macy’s declares bankruptcy and a court terminates the lease.The third largest tenant, fashion design house Kate Spade, has subleased its two floors to other tenants. The fourth, venture capital firm Mizuho Capital, has gone dark and is also marketing its space for sublease.CVS anchors the retail component of the building, paying an average of $174 per square foot for space on the first and second floors. The smaller retail tenants, a coffee shop and a Mexican restaurant, were closed and not paying rent as of February.Read moreWeWork inks 236K sf lease at 1440 BroadwayCIM buying New York REIT’s 1440 Broadway for $520MNY REIT taps two brokerages to market office tower 1440 Broadway Apart from the two small retailers, all tenants at the building have remained current on their rent obligations amid the pandemic. One office tenant, marketing firm InnerWorkings, requested rent relief but was denied.The new debt replaces $360 million in acquisition financing Deutsche Bank provided in 2017. It includes $30 million in upfront reserves, most of which is to be used on leasing costs, according to DBRS. Additionally, the landlord is required to contribute another $20 million in equity, also primarily for leasing costs.Contact Kevin Sun Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Tags Message* Full Name* Share via Shortlink CIM GroupTRD InsightsWeWork Email Address*last_img read more

Commentary: Children’s Hour Draws To A Close

first_imgCommentary: Children’s Hour Draws To A CloseAugust 23, 2019, By John INDIANAPOLIS – So, it seems that negotiation and diplomacy by temper tantrum aren’t that effective.Who could have guessed that?In the past few days, President Donald Trump continued his practice of picking fights with America’s friends and appeasing America’s enemies. He did so in ways and for reasons that only would have made sense in “Alice in Wonderland,” where up is down and down is up.John Krull, publisher, TheStatehouseFile.comThe president started his bewildering run of brouhahas by musing, out loud, that he might be interested in acquiring Greenland from Denmark.Denmark President Mette Frederiksen responded to Trump’s out-loud thought bubble by saying it was “an absurd discussion” because the days are over in which people and countries are bought and sold, and Denmark doesn’t own Greenland, anyway.Trump being Trump, responded with a snit.He was scheduled to visit Denmark at the beginning of September. He canceled the trip, saying Frederiksen was “nasty” for dismissing his idea in the way she did. She should have been more respectful.Hmmm.Maybe it would have been easier for Frederiksen to do that if he had sounded her out in private – say, in a face-to-face meeting at the beginning of September – rather than blurting his half-thought-out notion in front of a bunch of cameras and microphones. Then she, privately, could have explained what the obstacles might be.And no one would have been embarrassed.But Trump didn’t do that.Instead, he made a public statement.That forced Frederiksen to respond in public.Trump got his feelings hurt.Now, we have a strain in what has been a friendly relationship – a strain that could have been avoided so easily if the president had demonstrated a bare minimum of self-discipline and emotional maturity.Worse, there seems to be a domino effect.Just after Trump cancelled the Denmark trip, Iceland’s prime minister, Katrin Jakobsdottir, said she wouldn’t meet with Vice President Mike Pence when he visited her country. Instead, she will give a speech at a conference in Sweden.Jakobsdottir insisted the decision not to meet with Pence wasn’t a “snub,” but Icelandic historians said it was unprecedented.Pence’s visit to Iceland is scheduled for Sept. 4.Trump was scheduled to be in Denmark Sept. 2 and 3.Jakobsdottir’s speech is scheduled for Sept. 3, but she plans to linger at the conference to talk with attendees some more.Pence’s visit would have been the first by a U.S. vice president to Iceland since 1983.But Jakobsdottir isn’t trying to make a statement or send a signal.Not a chance.Then there is President Trump’s attempt to get Russia reinstated as part of the G-7, which was called the G-8 before the Russians were thrown out.The Russians were booted because they invaded the Ukraine in 2014. They’ve since made no attempts to resolve the situation or deal with the concerns of the other nations in the G-7.Well, all the other nations but the United States, where the president seems to be in thrall to Russian leader Vladimir Putin for some reason.The reaction of the leaders of the other nations in the G-7 to Trump’s proposal would have to heat up considerably to be considered frigid. They have pointed out that Russia should have to do something to make amends for invading Ukraine before the idea of readmission to the G-7 even should be entertained, much less acted upon.Trump apparently doesn’t see it that way.Maybe a guy who muses aloud about buying and selling nations and human beings just doesn’t see invading other countries and murdering the people there as that big a deal.But the leaders of other nations do see it as a big deal.Most of the signs suggest that they’re getting tired of dealing with this U.S. president’s immaturity.They want to deal with an adult.And soon.FOOTNOTE: John Krull is the director of Franklin College’s Pulliam School of Journalism and publisher of, a news website powered by Franklin College journalism students.Print Friendly, PDF & EmailFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

BREAKING NEWS: Evansville Fire and Police Departments Facing A Major Increase in Health…

first_imgFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare 2017-healthcare-plan-changes Evansville Fire and Police Departments Facing A Major Increase in Health Insurance PlanThe CCO has learned through multiple sources from the Evansville Fire Department and the Evansville Police Department that the City Of Evansville is trying to force what can only be considered as a catastrophic Employee Health Insurance plan on its employees for 2017.   According to sources from both departments if approved by City Council the proposed changes could be economically devastating to many of its employees.It looks  like the years of mismanagement and foolish spending practices, the Winnecke Administration may be trying to balance the 2017 budget  shortfalls off the backs of its public safety employees.  We are told that the proposed Health Insurance plan being pushed by Mayor Lloyd Winnecke  for 2017 would increase the yearly deductible paid by its employees to as much as $10,000 per year, with an annual “out of pocket” total of $14,000 per year per family.We were told when public safety officials balked at such an outrageous increase in the middle of a three year contract between the City and the Public Safety unions, the City then offered an alternative plan that would increase the employees monthly premiums from roughly $70 per month to $345 per month for family coverage. That plan would still have a hefty $8,000 out of pocket yearly expense to the employees on top of the additional $3,000 in premiums.The Police Officers and Firefighters that contacted the CCO and expressed their outrage and vowed Mayor Winnecke and the City Council are in for a political fight. They also tell us that they feel betrayed after supporting the Mayor and many of the current City Council members in last Novembers election. They also feel they have been stabbed in the back by our elected officials in a time when public safety professionals need them most. We are told that many city employees with special needs children or severely ill spouses believe if passed this new plan could send some of them into bankruptcy.We are told members of the police and fire unions are not only vowing to take legal action against the city but also are going to launch a spirited campaign against Mayor Winnecke and all those on the City Council that support the proposed employee Health Insurance plan for 2017.The City County Observer predicted this would happen over a year ago! The continued mismanagement and wasteful spending practices by Mayor Winnecke, the current and past City Council members has finally come back to bite our elected officials in the rear.FOOTNOTE:    We encourage all our readers to call Mayor Winnecke and members of the Evansville City Council and express your outrage concerning the unreasonable increases to public safety officials and other city employees Health Insurance coverage for 2017.The CCO will continue to monitor this situation and keep you updated as events unfold.  We can’t wait to see how members of the main stream media are going to handle this issue.center_img Click Here To Open The 2017 proposed Insurance changes By The Winnecke Administration and City Council. 20160921025003636last_img read more

Legacy of an Indonesian tsunami

first_imgThe devastating Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004 created hundreds of orphans in one hard-hit region of Indonesia, forcing many teens to grow up quickly and leave school for work or marriage and many younger girls to forgo school to take up roles around the home.The findings stemmed from five annual follow-up surveys of tsunami survivors by a team led by Elizabeth Frankenberg, a professor of public policy and sociology at Duke University. Frankenberg presented the surveys’ results Monday at the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies. Frankenberg was introduced by center Director Lisa Berkman, the Thomas Cabot Professor of Public Policy and of Epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health, who called Frankenberg’s work groundbreaking.The tsunami was nearly 100 feet high in some areas, scouring the coastline and depositing enormous mounds of debris miles inland. The tsunami was spawned by the 9.3 magnitude Sumatra-Andaman earthquake, one of the largest known, which pushed the sea floor upward 30 to 50 feet along a 1,200-mile fault. The enormous waves hit Indonesia’s coast within 15 minutes, but also spread across the Indian Ocean basin, affecting 26 countries.The tsunami killed 160,000 people in the study area alone, displaced 700,000, and caused an estimated $4.5 billion in property damage, Frankenberg said. Before the disaster, Frankenberg and colleagues had conducted a household survey of 39,000 people in 525 communities in the coastal Aceh and North Sumatra regions.Researchers conducted the first post-tsunami survey between five and 17 months afterward and repeated the process annually four times to track the disaster’s impact on orphaned children.Mortality was high, averaging 27 percent in hard-hit coastal regions. Mortality was highest for the young and the old. Adult men survived more often than adult women, likely because women in the traditional Muslim society were discouraged from learning to swim and were burdened by restrictive clothing, Frankenberg said. Though researchers thought they might find that there were significant deaths from disease and other causes in displaced-persons camps, they found instead that the vast majority of deaths came during the tsunami itself, mainly from drowning.Researchers found that about 30 percent of 1,173 children between ages of 9 and 17 from the pre-tsunami survey had died. Of the survivors, researchers located and interviewed 86 percent and found that 17 percent of them had lost one or both parents.It was striking how quickly after the tsunami most children returned to school, Frankenberg said, possibly because of the structure and stability offered by school in otherwise disrupted lives. Schools reopened within six to eight weeks and by a year after the disaster 83 percent of orphaned children were attending.In examining results over five years, researchers broke their results down to older children 15 to 17 and those 9 to 14. Among the older group, Frankenberg said the teens appeared to fill the roles of missing parents, with boys dropping out of school to work, and girls less likely to be at school or work, but taking on more household chores and more likely to be married.The girls were more likely to marry older men, as men who lost wives in the disaster quickly remarried. The result was that the average age gap between men and their wives in the area rose from about 6 years to 13 years.“My interpretation [of the data] is that they basically got married and did housework,” Frankenberg said.Among the younger children, girls hadn’t begun marrying during the survey period, but did see an increase in their housework load. Younger boys, however, didn’t see much impact during the survey period on work, household chores, or school attendance.Overall, Frankenberg said, the traditional Muslim society in the region absorbed orphans into surviving households. Children lived with relatives, with a surviving parent who remarried, or even in households formed by older orphans. Only six orphans were found in institutions, she said.Frankenberg said the survey results conflict with similar studies in Africa of children who lose one parent to AIDS. Those studies showed that children have worse outcomes if they lose their mother, while the post-tsunami surveys show that children fared worse if their father was killed.Another lesson is that recovery from such a catastrophe takes years, not months. Criticism about how slow recovery is moving even a year after such an event is misplaced, she said. Recovery does occur, but slowly.“You can’t look at a disaster and think of recovery in months,” Frankenberg said.One area of success in Indonesia has involved housing, Frankenberg said. Before the tsunami, 79 percent of those surveyed lived in homes owned by a family member. In 2005-06, that had fallen to 47 percent as people lived in camps and struggled to rebuild destroyed homes. By 2009-10, however, that number was back up to 77 percent.Still, Frankenberg said, some effects will be long lasting. Mental health status is poorly studied, and resources are hard to come by. Surveys after the tsunami showed high levels of post-traumatic shock among adults, but also showed the number of those affected falling over the intervening years. Despite that broader recovery, it’s likely that some people will continue to suffer, she said.In addition, communities themselves are still recovering. Some lost 30 percent of their population. While cities such as Banda Aceh will likely come back relatively rapidly, some smaller rural communities may have difficulty recovering their population levels, Frankenberg said.last_img read more
