Work has yet to commence at 335 Fifth Avenue in Koreatown, where a 26-story mixed-use residential building is expected to rise. Pi Capital Partners filed permits last August for the site, which is located at the corner of East 33rd Street and Fifth Avenue. The 283-foot-tall building is being designed by Raymond Chan Architect and will span 85,224 square feet. Eighty-two residences are expected to be created, averaging 682 square feet apiece.
The curtain wall of SHoP Architects‘ dramatic supertall at 111 West 57th Street is nearing completion as condominium sales have begun to close. Developed by JDS Development, Property Markets Group, and Spruce Capital Partners, the world’s most slender building stands topped out 1,428 feet above Billionaires’ Row in Midtown, and is currently the second-tallest building in the city by roof height. Meanwhile, the first closings have been recently finalized for the Landmark Residences, a collection of 14 homes located inside the attached pre-war structure that are designed by Studio Sofield and marketed by Douglas Elliman.
Curtain wall installation is progressing at 145 West 47th Street as the reinforced concrete superstructure rises in Times Square. Designed by Berg + Moss Architects and developed by Tribeach Holdings, the 48-story building will span 141,500 square feet and house a 630-room RIU Hotel.
Exterior work is progressing on 232 East 54th Street, a topped-out 420-foot-tall residential tower in Midtown East. Designed by Ismael Leyva Architects, the 40-story structure is located between Second and Third Avenues near a number of notable buildings such as the Lipstick Building at 885 Third Avenue and the 915-foot-tall Citigroup Center, aka 610 Lexington Avenue. YIMBY last reported that Elk Investors was listed as the exclusive developer of the building, though ownership may have fully transferred to Mossanen Group and an LLC known as East 54th St. Properties.
400 West 57th Street is an old architectural gem that stands at the western corner of West 57th Street and Ninth Avenue in the Manhattan neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen. The eight-story edifice, although worn out and in need of restoration, features a beautiful fenestration of red and white brick masonry, gently bulging bay windows, arched casements, a handsome cornice with one pediment on the northern roofline, and a number of detailed running bonds showing the intricate hand laid craftsmanship. This was formally called The Windermere but has been left to deteriorate since the end of the 20th century.
