Construction is now 12 stories up on the 62-story, 426-unit mixed-use tower under development at 242 West 53rd Street, in Midtown’s Theater District. The progress on construction, first reported by Curbed NY, can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by Tectonic. Building permits indicate the project will eventually encompass 542,276 square feet, rising 674 feet to its main roof, not including the bulkhead. There will be 16,514 square feet of retail space across the ground floors, followed by 426 residential units on the fourth through 59th floors. The apartments, which are confirmed to be rentals, should average 1,024 square feet apiece. Algin Management is the developer and CetraRuddy is the architect. Completion is anticipated for 2018.
