The Gene Kaufman designed-1050 Sixth Avenue, dubbed ML House, is making significant progress in the heart of Midtown, Manhattan. In a break from the architect’s norm, the building will not be hospitality-minded; rather, it will yield 24 floors of apartments, as well as ground-floor retail space. The site is half a block away from Bryant Park, with access to several subway lines just a few blocks in any direction. Orin Wilf’s Garden Homes and Skyline is responsible for the development.
With so much focus on the rising developments along Central Park South, there hasn’t been much discussion of new penthouses rising on the other end of the greenery, mostly because they are very few and far between. One of those rarities is 145 Central Park North, a 14-story residential building near the center of Central Park North in Harlem, between 7th Avenue and Malcolm X Boulevard. Today, YIMBY has the first rendering of the project, which is being developed by Einhorn Development Group.
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.
74 Trinity Place will be a substantial addition to the Financial District’s tapestry of buildings, and now, work for the project is starting to progress above ground level. Once complete, the 26-story tower will bring 310,000 square feet of new office space to the neighborhood, which is somewhat of a surprise, since it was originally expected to house condominiums.
Construction on the Lower East Side’s first legitimate skyscraper continues apace. When YIMBY last looked at 252 South Street, i.e. One Manhattan Square, the superstructure had reached its 80th floor, with topping-out officially occurring last September. Now, only a dozen floors of cladding remain before its exterior is complete. Extell Development is responsible for development, with Lendlease responsible for construction.
