Back in June, YIMBY reported on progress for the Block 675 Redevelopment, just to the southwest of Related’s Hudson Yards supertalls. The site sits on the corner of 30th Street and 11th Avenue, and there, Douglaston Development and Lalezarian Properties want to use air rights transferred from Chelsea Piers via the Special Hudson River Park District to build over 1,200 apartments. Now, we have some fresh renderings, a clearer look at Tower B, and the latest figures for the still-growing proposal, which consists of two towers being designed by FXFOWLE and Ismael Leyva Architects.
YIMBY has covered progress across Hudson Yards extensively in recent months, and the neighborhood’s rapid transformation is nothing short of incredible. But the last time we looked at progress at the Diller Scofidio + Renfro-designed Fifteen Hudson Yards, it was back in December of 2016, when it was at its eighth floor. Now, eleven months later, work is approaching the upper floors of the soon-to-be 70-story tower, which is being developed by Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group.
The Upper East Side is about to see another new condominium development with super-sized units, this time at 148 East 78th Street, which will yield a 15-story building rising 205 feet to its rooftop. The generously-sized ceilings will be matched by the floorplans for the 26 condos, which will average 2,600 square feet apiece, with 68,293 square feet of residential space in total. There will also be 3,739 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. Ismael Leyva Architects is listed as the architect of record, and John Usdan of Midwood Management Corp. is the developer. Demolition permits for two existing buildings were filed earlier this month.
Hudson Yards is making major progress, with Related’s core redevelopment over the Eastern Yards now racing towards completion. While progress on the Western Yards is still a few years away, another large site on the southern side of West 30th Street is set for an impressive transformation from under-used retail and industrial buildings into a two-towered residential and commercial project that will top-out 700 feet above street level.
New renderings have been revealed of the 43-story, 50-unit mixed-use tower under development at 45 Park Place, in TriBeCa. Depictions of the future tower can be seen at Curbed NY. Excavation work was underway at the site in December, according to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. A tower crane was also assembled on-site last year.
