YIMBY last reported on 40 Tenth Avenue when new building applications were filed for the site, in November of 2015. Now, with demolition of an old three-story warehouse complete, construction on the office project is finally getting underway. The progress on excavation has been substantial, and piling and caissons are also beginning to appear. Jeanne Gang Architects is behind the design, and the latest photos come from YIMBY Forum user JC_Heights.
Per the applications filed with the Department of Buildings, the structure will rise 12 floors and 190 feet to its rooftop, indicating very generous ceiling heights. Within, the project will contain 116,205 square feet of commercial space.
William Gottlieb Real Estate and Aurora Capital Partners are the developers, and completion is likely by 2019.
