Demolition is finishing up at 100 West 37th Street, the site of an upcoming 68-story mixed-use skyscraper in the Garment District of Midtown, Manhattan. Designed by C3D Architecture and developed by Sioni Group under the 989 Sixth Realty LLC, the 743-foot-tall structure will yield 384,118 square feet with 300 condominium units spread across 297,301 square feet, as well as 86,817 square feet of commercial space and two cellar levels. Northeast Specialist Group is the demolition contractor for the corner property, which is alternately addressed as 989-993 Sixth Avenue and located at the intersection of Sixth Avenue and West 37th Street.
The 21-story former occupant of the plot was fully razed since our last update in late August, when the building had begun to descend below the roof level of the adjacent Haier Building. Recent photos show a lone excavator sitting below grade amid a swath of fine rubble. The corner portion of the property remains covered by a concrete slab at street level, and continues to function as a staging area for the demolition and excavation.
Renderings by Render.Bar depict the skyscraper’s base consisting of two conjoined cylindrical volumes clad in a glass curtain and topped with a wraparound landscaped terrace. Above, the tower rises with a curving glass massing to the roof level of the neighboring building to the west, where a second landscaped terrace is located. The skyscraper then continues to a third setback near the top, followed by a stack of round balconies lining the northeast corner up to the top floor, and a mechanical bulkhead with illuminated horizontal slats caps the structure. Additional balconies are shown on the southeast and southwest corners in the below rendering. Neither rendering shows the western face of the tower, where the core will likely be positioned.
A start and completion date for 100 West 37th Street have yet to be announced.
