New permits have been filed for a 52-story residential building at 555 West 38th Street in the Hudson Yards district of Manhattan. While the site is across the street from the Jacob Javits Convention center, it is not immediately next to Related’s mega-development, being five blocks away from 55 Hudson Yards. Rockrose will be responsible for the development.
Brookfield has officially celebrated the topping out of the 67-story One Manhattan West, aka OMW, the largest of six structures in their six million square foot Manhattan West development in Midtown West.

For a complete update on the construction, YIMBY visited the site, capturing top-floor views from both The Eugene and OMW.
Construction on the Virgin Hotel at 1225 Broadway has reached yet another milestone. Since we last checked in May, the building has more than doubled in height, and is nearly two-thirds of the way to topping out 38 floors above street level.

Stillman Development International has unveiled their ambitious renovation plans for one of New York City’s oldest theaters.

For the next few months, construction workers will be toiling tirelessly to reach the seemingly possible year-end completion deadline.
