The Upper West Side is typically off-limits to developments of major substance, which is why the recent news regarding progress on new-tallest-towers for the neighborhood at 200 Amsterdam Avenue and 50 West 66th Street is particularly positive. But in between those two towers, on the corner of West 61st Street and Broadway, YIMBY has reported extensively on 1865 Broadway, a 33-story residential tower designed by Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill, which has now reached its rooftop.

YIMBY has reported on 200 Amsterdam Avenue extensively, revealing renderings back in 2016 and then covering the start of excavation in October. Since then, Extell’s 50 West 66th Street has upstaged it as the soon-to-be tallest on the Upper West Side, but SJP Properties’ 55-story and 669-foot-tall contribution to the skyline will still be extremely impressive in its own right. Today, we have a new set of renderings that give a clearer picture of the actual skyscraper, and a close-up of its crown.
Two months ago, YIMBY featured a new set of exterior renderings for Brooklyn Point, which is Extell’s first skyscraper in the Outer Boroughs. It will soon begin rising at 138 Willoughby Street, and will temporarily become the tallest tower in Downtown Brooklyn. Now, we have an exclusive first look at interior renderings for the project’s condominiums, which are being designed by Katherine Newman.
YIMBY has covered 130 William Street extensively, from back when preliminary permits were first filed in 2015, to the recent start of foundation work. Now, the building has seen another design shift, with new renderings by architect David Adjaye revealing a substantial transformation to the exterior as compared to the most recent images. The 61-story tower is being developed by Lightstone, and is just about ready to start rising above ground level.
Harry Macklowe’s most prominent project to date is certainly 432 Park Avenue, on the corner of 57th Street. But two blocks to the northeast, the developer’s CetraRuddy-designed tower at 200 East 59th Street is making a mark of its own, and is now almost complete. While the 35-story and 490-foot-tall tower may not be quite as tall as its sibling to the south, the concrete design has become another attractive addition to the Manhattan skyline, and today we have a look thanks to photos by DBOX.
