YIMBY last reported on 45 Broad Street when workers arrived and barrier installation began back in September. Now, we have a few fresh renderings for the tower, which also depict what the inside of the open-air mechanical floors will look like. The supertall borrows the technique from 432 Park Avenue, and combined with the intricate bronze exterior, the resulting tower could be one of the most attractive additions to the Lower Manhattan skyline in several decades.
Back in June of 2016, YIMBY revealed the first renderings of 200 Amsterdam Avenue, which is set to become the tallest skyscraper on the Upper West Side, at 669 feet to parapet. Permits were filed a few months later, and now, despite protests by NIMBYs, excavation work has officially begun.
While the slate of supertalls entering the city’s development pipeline has been dwindling across most neighborhoods, the trickle of new construction has stayed constant in the densest areas of Midtown and the Financial District. Within the blocks of Lower Manhattan, 45 Broad Street has continued to make progress, and now, workers are arriving on-site for what will become Downtown’s tallest residential tower.
Staten Island rarely sees major new developments, and when it does, they normally appear on the island’s northeastern shorefront, in and around the St. George ferry terminal. But now, in the borough’s Bloomfield neighborhood on the far western side of the island, new job applications have been filed for an office building that will span just shy of 325,000 square feet, with a design by CetraRuddy Architects.
The site of the old Mercedes dealership at 520 West 41st Street has seen several prospective designs covered by YIMBY over the years, including a pair of connected skyscrapers that generated a substantial amount of buzz. Now, permits have finally been filed with the Department of Buildings for the site’s residential tower, which will rise 57 floors and 723 feet to its rooftop.
