Earlier this fall, YIMBY checked in on the Robert A.M. Stern Architects-designed 250 West 81st Street as it was just climbing above street level, at West 81st Street and Broadway, on the Upper West Side. New renderings for the project have since appeared, giving a substantially better view of what the classically-minded new development will look like, and the pace of construction has also picked up, as per the latest photos from Chused.

While Jersey City’s ongoing real estate boom has been substantial and transformative, almost the entirety of the action has been devoted to the creation of new residential space, including towers like 99 Hudson Street. But a few blocks north, the city’s first new commercial office building in decades, dubbed Harborside Tower, is getting ready to rise at 136 Greene Street, and renderings have now been released.
The last time YIMBY checked in on The Lightstone Group’s 130 William Street back in August, excavation work was still underway, as the exteriors of neighboring buildings were also being faced in a protective covering. Now, per the latest from rbrome, concrete trucks have arrived on-site, as foundation work has also started, signaling that the soon-to-be 800′ tower is about to start rising.
YIMBY has covered plans for 11-15 East 75th Street extensively, as the assemblage of three buildings created by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich wound its way through the Landmarks Preservation Commission over the past two years. While plans designed by Herzog & de Meuron had already been approved, Abramavoch has now acquired an adjacent structure at 9 East 75th Street which will be incorporated into what is seemingly the fastest-growing mega-mansion in New York City. Later today, the new design will be reviewed by the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
Alloy Development’s plans for 80 Flatbush Avenue will eventually yield two residential towers, the larger of which will extend 74 floors and 920 feet into the Downtown Brooklyn skyline. But before construction can begin, the developers covered the existing structures in a mural starting back in September. Now, work on the art piece has wrapped up, as seen in the latest photos of the site from Tectonic.
