Back in December of 2015, it was reported that AB & Sons and Sioni Group were in contract to acquire 235,000 square feet of air rights (from the landmarked Haier Building) for their development assemblage at 989-993 Sixth Avenue, located on the corner of West 37th Street, in the Garment District section of Midtown. They have since closed on the purchase for an undisclosed amount, and now, the development team is planning a roughly 80-story mixed-use building, which could likely include retail space near the street level, a hotel, and residential units, according to The Real Deal. The site could boast up to 375,000 square feet of as-of-right development potential if the 21-story, 90,000-square-foot office building at 989-991 Sixth is demolished. The building reportedly won’t be demolished until at least 2019, probably due to existing leases. The corner lot at 993 Sixth Avenue is occupied by a partially built 18-story hotel project, which will also probably be demolished (it’s five stories in height).
