The last time YIMBY checked on progress at Extell’s Central Park Tower, rising at 217 West 57th Street, glass installation had just begun, and the building was several floors above its cantilever. Three months later, the supertall’s superstructure is pushing towards its halfway point, and stands over 700 feet above the streets below. New renderings for the project have also appeared alongside its partially-launched website, giving a better idea of interiors, as well as the nighttime lighting scheme.
Permits have been filed by an anonymous LLC for a 17-story office building at 710 3rd Avenue, on the corner of 45th Street and 3rd Avenue, in Midtown East, Manhattan. The development will stand four blocks away from the main entrance to Grand Central Train Station, serviced by the 4, 5, 6, 7, and Shuttle trains, along with all lines on the Metro-North railroad.
JDS Development and Property Markets Group’s 111 West 57th Street has been making substantial progress since YIMBY last checked in on the site back in August, and the soon-to-be 1,428-foot-tall tiwer continues to climb into the Midtown skyline. Glass curtain wall installation is now clearly visible and climbing on the southern side, and the supertall’s distinct terracotta and copper facade is also making major progress along the eastern face, which can be seen from street level.
The last time YIMBY checked in on Ceruzzi Properties’ 138 East 50th Street in late August, the residential tower had just climbed past its 40th floor. Now, construction appears to have reached the parapet, 800 feet and 63 floors above the Midtown streets below, as seen in the latest update from Tectonic.
Related’s towers rising over the Eastern Railyards as part of the Hudson Yards redevelopment have been well over a decade in the making, but one block to the north, progress has been substantially faster on the redevelopment of the southwest corner of 34th Street and 10th Avenue. YIMBY previously reported that Mitsui Fudosan took a 90% ownership stake from Related as of early September, and now, excavation is underway.
