The Virgin Hotels at 1225 Broadway has made a quick and steady amount of progress on the reflective glass curtain wall. The NoMad superstructure topped out in February and stands 476 feet tall. Much of the envelope went up in the last couple of months and is climbing closer to the top of the skyscraper. There will be 300,000 square feet of newly built space, most of which is going to house 460 hotel rooms. 90,000 square feet of retail will sit on the lower podium floors. Stantec is the designer of the glass building, while Lam Group is the developer of the Midtown property. Sir Richard Branson of Virgin Group will be in charge of managing the hotel.
Installation of the dark-colored curtain wall panels has begun at Rose Hill, aka 30 East 29th Street, in NoMad. The Art Deco-inspired envelope now covers the podium and first residential floors of the future 45-story skyscraper, which is located between Madison Avenue and Park Avenue South. Designed by CetraRuddy Architecture and developed by Rockefeller Group, the tower will stand 639 feet tall and become one of the most prominent structures in the neighborhood. CORE is managing sales and the marketing of the units.
Work on No.33 Park Row, aka “Pearl on the Park,” has been making steady progress in the Financial District. Most of the floor-to-ceiling glass panels are now in place, with dark-colored steel frames enhancing the visual appearance. The 25-story apartment building is being designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners while Centurion Real Estate Partners is collaborating with Urban Muse to develop the corner site. The 331-foot-tall tower will contain 31 units.
Work is charging toward the finish line at 25 Park Row, a 50-story residential skyscraper that has topped out over the Financial District. The curtain wall is rapidly rising and closing in on the nearly completed crown. The project is being designed by COOKFOX Architects and developed by L+M Development Partners. Sales for the 110 residences have already launched and are being handled and marketed by Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group.
The exterior glass curtain wall of 74 Trinity Place has reached its 424-foot tall roof parapet in the Financial District. The bronze-trimmed, 26-story superstructure stands directly behind Trinity Church and is being designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects and developed by Trinity Real Estate. Stephen B. Jacobs Group is the executive architect of the 310,000-square-foot building.
