Excavation continues at 520 Fifth Avenue, the site of a 76-story mixed-use supertall in Midtown, Manhattan. Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox for Rabina, which took over as the lead developer in 2019 from Ceruzzi Properties and SMI USA, the slender 995-foot-tall skyscraper will yield 507,608 square feet with 98 residential units, commercial space, and four cellar levels. Suffolk Construction is the general contractor for the property, which is located at the corner of Fifth Avenue and West 43rd Street.
Tishman Speyer has announced chef Erik Ramirez and Juan Correa, the team behind critically acclaimed restaurants Llama San and Llama Inn, will bring a new dining concept to The Spiral at 66 Hudson Boulevard. Located in Hudson Yards, the new restaurant will occupy the ground floor of the tower on the northwest corner at Tenth Avenue and 34th Street.
Excavation has begun at 126 East 57th Street, site of a 28-story residential tower on Billionaires’ Row in Midtown East, Manhattan. Designed by ODA Architecture and developed by MRR Development, the 346-foot-tall structure will yield 208,000 square feet with 147 condominium units spread across 170,000 square feet, as well as lower-level commercial space. WSP USA is the engineer, Urban Atelier Group is the construction manager, and Plaza Buildings is the general contractor of the property, which is located at the corner of East 57th Street and Lexington Avenue.
Construction is ongoing on the first phase of the $100 million East Midtown Greenway, a three-segment reimagining of the East Midtown Waterfront esplanade in Sutton Place between East 38th to East 61st Streets. Photographs below focus on the northernmost part of the scheme, which will span between East 53rd and East 61st Streets in Midtown, Manhattan. This part will include a new park entrance at East 60th Street, a pedestrian bridge, and the revamping of Andrew Haswell Green Park and the Alice Aycock Pavilion. The overall master plan aims to create new green space for pedestrian and bicyclists and provide safer access to the eastern edge of the island, which had been largely impeded by the FDR Drive.
Exterior work has resumed on One High Line, a pair of 26- and 36-story mixed-use towers at 76 Eleventh Avenue in the Midtown, Manhattan neighborhood of Chelsea. Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group and developed by Witkoff Group, the 900,000-square-foot complex will yield 236 condominium units, 137 hotel rooms, 85,000 square feet of retail space, and a public plaza. Steve Witkoff purchased the property, formerly known as The XI, in a foreclosure sale for $900 million and partnered with Access Industries and Monroe Capital to complete the stalled project. Gilles & Boissier and Gabellini Sheppard Associates are the interior designers and Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is handling sales and marketing for the High Line-adjacent property, which is bound by Tenth Avenue to the east, West Street to the west, West 17th Street to the south, and West 18th Street to the north.
