Stillman Development International has unveiled their ambitious renovation plans for one of New York City’s oldest theaters. Located at 215 West 42nd Street, Times Square Theater was originally constructed in 1920 by Italian architect Eugene de Rosa who designed several performance centers in both Manhattan and Staten Island.

The Kent is a 30-story residential building at 200 East 95th Street under construction on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Progress is just inches from completion, and the structure is now settling into the surrounding neighborhood.
Following multiple public bids to update and expand Manhattan’s Frick Collection, the museum will again present development plans to the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) in hopes of approval. Architect Annabelle Selldorf will still oversee design of the expansion in collaboration with architects of record, Beyer Blinder Belle.
The Frick Collection will again present expansion proposals to the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) in a hearing scheduled for Tuesday, May 29. Following widespread public outcry and eventual LPC disapproval in 2014, the new plans increase the building’s aboveground area by about 10 percent, relocate a portion of the collection below ground, create a new auditorium and visual entertainment areas, and increase accessibility for people in wheelchairs and mobility-impaired visitors.
Construction of the two-structure TWA Hotel, flanking the historic TWA terminal, has made significant progress since our last update in December. Photos from the site reveal that one of the hotel towers is nearly fully covered with its façade, and that the second tower has topped-out.
