Construction is continuing to progress on the residential conversion of the 90-year-old One Wall Street, a 564-foot-tall Art Deco skyscraper in the Financial District. Developed by Macklowe Properties, the project is expected to cost $1.5 billion and also features an exterior addition designed by SLCE Architects. The undertaking is the largest office-to-residential conversion in New York City history and will feature 566 new units with sales handled and marketed by Compass, as well as a new 44,000-square-foot Whole Foods Market and a Life Time fitness center on the lower levels. The site is bound by Broadway to the west, Wall Street to the north, New Street to the east, and Exchange Place to the south.
Construction has topped out on 555 West 38th Street, a 570-foot-tall residential skyscraper in Hudson Yards. Developed by Rockrose and designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects with SLCE as the architect of record, the 52-story structure will add 598 rental units to this growing section of Midtown. The site is located along Eleventh Avenue between West 38th Street and West 39th Street, directly across from the Jacob K. Javits Center.
For nearly the past year since YIMBY first revealed renderings of SLCE Architects’ 115 East 55th Street, construction progress remained below street level and tucked behind construction fences and machinery for a while. Now a revisit to the Midtown East site shows that the 185-foot-tall residential project has quickly sprung up and is getting close to topping out. Developed by Zeckendorf Development, the ground-up 18-story, 62-unit, 71,961-square-foot edifice is situated directly adjacent to the back eastern elevation of Norman Foster’s 47-story, 660,000-square-foot 425 Park Avenue.
Permits have been filed for a 23-story mixed-use building at 270 West 96th Street on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Located between West End Avenue and Broadway, the lot is one block north of the 96th Street subway station, serviced by the 1, 2, and 3 trains. Fetner Properties is listed as the owner behind the applications.
New details and renderings have been released for The Astor LIC, a six-story mixed-use development that will add 143 rental units to the market this year. Located at 36-20 Steinway Street in Long Island City, Queens, the ground-up new build is designed by SLCE Architects and developed by JMH Development and Mettle Property Group. Leasing is expected to begin next month for the residences, with Corcoran New Development as the exclusive marketing and leasing agent.
