Façade work is continuing to progress on St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, a reinforced concrete structure atop the elevated Liberty Park in the Financial District. Designed by Santiago Calatrava and developed by The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the church is found near the intersection of Greenwich Street and Liberty Street and sits above the eastern half of the vehicle security center for the World Trade Center.
Construction has topped out on 141 East Houston Street, a ten-story mixed-use office building on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Designed by Roger Ferris + Partners and developed by East End Capital and K Property Group, the 68,000-square-foot structure will yield office space as well as retail on the ground floor and two cellar levels. The property is located between Forsyth Street to the west and Eldridge Street to the east on a plot that was formerly occupied by the Sunshine Cinema.
Construction has quickly risen past the halfway mark on 3041 Broadway, a 42-story mixed-use tower designed by Robert A. M. Stern Architects in Morningside Heights. Alternately addressed as 100 Claremont Avenue, the project is being developed by L&M Development Partners and Lendlease with SLCE Architects as the architect of record, and will yield 350,000 square feet with condominiums as well as institutional offices, faculty housing, and classrooms for the Union Theological Seminary. Beyer Blinder Belle is handling the renovations of Union Theological Seminary’s Hastings Hall, where students reside. The property is located by the corner of Claremont Avenue and West 122nd Street, directly across from Riverside Church, and the tower is being constructed with the use of air rights from the seminary.
Curtain wall installation is wrapping up on One Bell Slip, a 31-story residential tower in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by Brookfield Property Partners and Park Tower Group, the 369-foot-tall structure will yield 413 units spread across 292,029 square feet, as well as 992 square feet of commercial space on the lower floors. The project is located at the corner of Bell Slip and Commercial Street along the Newtown Creek and East River waterfront, and is part of the massive Greenpoint Landing riverfront development.
Construction is rising rapidly on The Nova, a 24-story residential project at 41-05 29th Street in Long Island City, Queens. Designed by Fogarty Finger and developed by SB Development Group, the 290-foot-tall structure will yield 86 homes and ground-floor retail space on a triangular plot at the confluence of 29th Street and 41st Avenue. The developers recently secured a construction loan from SCALE Lending worth $55 million to complete the project.
