605 West 42nd Street [Commercial Observer]: Both financial and physical progress can be witnessed at the 60-story residential tower being constructed at 605 West 42nd Street in Hell’s Kitchen. The 1.16 million square-foot, 1,174-unit building is now up to the 14th floor, and additionally, the Bank of China has finalized a “deal that will provide $550 million” to fund construction. Developer Joseph Moinian expects construction to “come to a close in late 2015.”

282 South 5th Street [Curbed]: Midwood Investment and Development has plans for a “13-story, 82-unit rental apartment with 26,000 square-feet of landscaped outdoor space” at 282 South 5th Street in Williamsburg. Morris Adjmi is designing, and with demolition complete — and permits now under review — construction is imminent.

10-44 47th Avenue [Brownstoner Queens]: A four-story townhouse is rising at 10-44 47th Avenue in Hunter’s Point, between 11th Street and Vernon Boulevard. Rebar is up to the second floor of the seven-unit building, which is being designed by Michael Kang.
