Excavation and pilings are progressing for Strata Tower, Bjarke Ingels Group‘s 34-story commercial office skyscraper at 3 West 29th Street in NoMad. Formerly known as 29th & 5th, the project is being developed by HFZ Capital Group and is slated to top out at 551 feet, making it one of the tallest structures in Midtown below the Empire State Building. Pavarini McGovern, LLC is the general contractor for the nearly 300,000-square-foot development.
The steel superstructure of Two Manhattan West is beginning to rise in Midtown West. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill and developed by Brookfield, the 935-foot-tall office skyscraper will ascend directly to the south of the completed One Manhattan West and feature an identical architectural design. The 58-story building will contain two million square feet of office space and is projected to cost $2 billion.
Construction is wrapping up on 534 West 29th Street, aka The No. 29 Condominium, a nine-story residential building near the High Line in Chelsea. Designed by Workshop/APD and developed by Blackhouse and Orielis, the 17,000-square-foot structure will contain six units ranging from full-floor homes to duplexes.
Work is now complete on Hudson Commons, a mixed-use commercial office at 441 Ninth Avenue in Midtown West. Located between 34th Street and 35th Street, the project involved the construction of a 17-story addition above an existing eight-story, 58-year-old structure. Kohn Pedersen Fox is the designer and Cove Property and Baupost Group are the developers of the 700,000-square-foot building.
Construction activity is underway at 519 West 29th Street in Chelsea, where a ten-story residential building is set to rise. Developed by Churchill Real Estate and Six Sigma with Rand Engineering and Architecture as the architect of record, the 135-foot-tall structure will yield 56,160 square feet divided among 60 condominiums. The site is located between Tenth and Eleventh Avenues on the western side of the High Line.
