Construction Update: 170 Amsterdam Avenue

170 Amsterdam Avenue

Equity Residential’s 170 Amsterdam Avenue has made major progress, and the entirety of the structure is now well above ground. The tower will eventually stand 21 floors and contain 235 units, and the architect is Handel.

Construction of 170 Amsterdam Avenue has proceeded in a manner atypical for Manhattan; much of the site was a concrete pit as of the last update, while a small sliver of the building had risen above street level. Evidently work has been focused on the southern portion of the project, as the entirety of the structure is now even, and rising.

The building’s columned exoskeleton is already obvious, and – as renderings indicated – it will be the new tower’s defining feature.

Completion of the building is expected by 2015.
