Work is continuing on the pilings for 601 West 29th Street, the site of a 695-foot-tall residential skyscraper and the 28th tallest building currently under construction in New York City. Located at the corner of West 29th Street and Eleventh Avenue on the border of Hudson Yards and the rising High Line-adjacent developments of West Chelsea, the project is designed by FXCollaborative and developed by Douglaston Development. The 58-story structure is also known as Tower A in a two-building development on the rectangular parcel.
The Hudson Yards section of Midtown West is now home to a new, 399-key Courtyard by Marriott hotel. The 28-story building is located at 461 West 34th Street and will be managed by property owner Endeavor Hospitality Group. The project team also includes Marx Development Group and architect DSM Design Group.
The reinforced concrete foundations for Davis Brody Bond‘s 21-story tech hub at 124 East 14th Street is taking shape and climbing toward street level. Located just east of Union Square, the development is officially known as the Union Square Tech Training Center. The 254,000-square-foot project will include a mix of affordable and market-rate office space for tech companies, retail, and dining facilities managed by Urbanspace. Private entities RAL Development and Suffolk Construction are also part of the project team.
Last month, YIMBY posted the first look at plans and renderings for 270 Park Avenue, which will become the future headquarters for JPMorgan Chase. The structural behemoth will become one of the largest office buildings in the Five Boroughs upon completion, totaling 2.5 million square feet and rising approximately 1,425 feet to its pinnacle. Today, we have another look at the project thanks to visualization firm ATCHAIN. While this image is the most refined of what has been revealed to date, differences in the silhouette between this version and the one leaked in a JPMorgan Chase report accompanying YIMBY’s last post indicate that this specific version could already be outdated relative to the previous reveal.
YIMBY went to check out the views from the 75th floor of SHoP Architects‘ 111 West 57th Street. The world’s most slender building has nearly perfectly centered views of Central Park to the north, and clear views of the Empire State Building down to One World Trade Center to the south. JDS Development, Property Markets Group, and Spruce Capital Partners are developing the 1,428-foot-tall residential skyscraper, which has a height-to-width ratio of 24:1. A total of 46 condominiums will be created and marketed by Douglas Elliman. Studio Sofield is the interior designer.
