The glass facade is continuing its climb at Two Blue Slip, aka 41 Blue Slip , in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, the second tower to rise in the Greenpoint Landing master plan. The topped-out reinforced concrete structure, which stands 40 stories tall above the waterfront, is designed by Handel Architects and co-developed by Park Tower Group and Brookfield Property Partners. L+M Development Partners is the third developer of Greenpoint Landing, but not for this particular tower. 41 Blue Slip stands taller than its adjacent residential sibling One Blue Slip, aka 37 Blue Slip, the first to be erected at the waterfront site.
Permits have been filed for a 29-story mixed-use building at 430 Main Street on Roosevelt Island. Located on the east side of the island, the lot is near the Roosevelt Island subway station, serviced by the F train. Related Companies and Hudson Companies are listed as the owner behind the applications. The development partners are also responsible for the recently topped-off Riverwalk Park rental development on Roosevelt Island. This may be the ninth and final component in the nine-building Riverwalk rental complex.
The second tower of the Journal Squared complex, aka 537 Summit Avenue, is rising rapidly and will soon surpass the adjacent 574-foot-tall, 53-story building, which was the first completed segment of the upcoming trio of residential skyscrapers. The Jersey City property is designed by HWKN/Hollwich Kushner and Handel Architects and developed by Kushner Real Estate Development. The second phase of Journal Squared will rise 759 feet, yield 700 units, 18,000 square feet of retail space, and feature a gross floor space of roughly 1,000,000 square feet.
The reinforced concrete foundation walls for 25 Columbus Drive have reached street level in downtown Jersey City. Additional rebar is sticking out and pointing upward, indicating the location of the columns and walls for the ground-up, 626-foot-high mixed-use project. Handel Architects is designing and Mack Cali is developing the proposed 57-story skyscraper, while Fogarty Finger is the interior architect.
Façade work is underway at 12 East 48th Street on what will become a 161-room Hilton Grand Vacation Hotel. Located in Midtown East between Madison Avenue and Fifth Avenue, the reinforced concrete superstructure has already topped out and the curtain wall on the northern elevation is beginning to rise above the ground floor. Designed by Handel Architects, the bright metallic frames that surround the building’s windows will form a subtly oscillating geometric pattern. Hidrock Realty is the developer of the project.
