Last week, the top half of One Vanderbilt‘s 100-foot-tall architectural spire was finally replaced at the pinnacle of the 77-story Midtown East supertall. The spire was first put in place when the 1,401-foot-tall skyscraper topped out on September 18, 2019, but was disassembled in mid-December to make it easier for the construction crane to swing about. The reinstallation marks a major construction milestone for the Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed office tower, which is getting close to completion.
185 Broadway has been vertically progressing over the lower stretch of Broadway and the surrounding Financial District neighborhood. The 31-story mixed-use superstructure is designed by FXCollaborative and developed by SL Green, and is slated to open as a 404-foot tall, 260,000-square-foot development. The site is located next to the western entrance to the Fulton Street station and is one street away from the World Trade Center.
Permits have been filed for a 27-story mixed-use building at 15 Beekman Street in Manhattan’s Financial District. Located at the intersection of Nassau Street and Beekman Street, the corner lot also known as 126-132 Nassau Street, is within walking distance of Fulton Street subway station, serviced by the 2, 3, 4, 5, A, C, J, and Z trains. SL Green Realty is listed as the owner behind the applications for the future Pace University academic center and dormitory. Pace University also has an academic property at 41 Park Row.
Full demolition permits have been filed for a 25,000-square-foot, four-story structure at 752-760 Madison Avenue on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Locate at the corner of East 65th Street, the site is planned to yield a 12-story building that will house the new Giorgio Armani flagship boutique with residential units on the upper floors. SL Green Realty Corp. is listed as the owner behind the applications and partnered with Giorgio Armani Corp. for the future development.
The superstructure of 185 Broadway is now several floors above ground in the Financial District. Designed by FXCollaborative and developed by SL Green, the 260,000-square-foot development will top out at 31 stories and bring more than 200 rental apartments and flagship retail space to Lower Manhattan.
