The last time YIMBY reported on progress at 66 Hudson Boulevard was back in September of 2016, when Tishman Speyer filed permits for the 64-story office giant, designed by Bjarke Ingels Group/BIG. Now, demolition has wrapped on the site’s former low-slung structures, which means work can officially begin on the spiraling supertall.

YIMBY has covered the tribulations of the Collegiate Church redevelopment since the wrecking ball descended upon the Bancroft Bank Building, and several of its neighbors. The project, given the address of 8 West 30th Street, then wound its way through the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Now, the Moshe Safdie design has been ditched for an office tower by Bjarke Ingels of BIG Architects.
The New York City Department of Design and Construction has filed plans for a Bjarke Ingels-designed police station in the South Bronx that’s expected to cost $50 million.
It appears the final design has been fully revealed for the 11-story, 233-unit mixed-use building under development at 149 East 125th Street, a.k.a. 146 East 126th Street, on the northern end of East Harlem. A groundbreaking ceremony has also been held for the project, dubbed Gotham East 126th Residential, Curbed NY reported. The latest building permits indicate it will encompass 275,566 square feet and rise 120 feet to the roof, not including the bulkhead.
Late last month, YIMBY reported that piling work was underway at the site of HFZ Capital Group’s two-towered, 35- and 25-story, mixed-use project at 76 11th Avenue in southern Chelsea. The developer had been considering whether to construct a hotel or office space within the project’s commercial component; now it has been revealed that a five-star, 137-key Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas is planned. The hotel portion will be located in the 25-story eastern tower and will feature a spa. It will be the Bangkok-based hotel operator’s first location in the United States.
