YIMBY has the latest on progress at the Robert A.M. Stern Architects-designed 250 West 81st Street, on the Upper West Side, which has finally topped-out at 209 feet, right on schedule. The new building fits neatly in the neighborhood, with a myriad of classical sensibilities embellishing the façade as well as the interiors. Alongside the topping-out, a slew of new interior renderings have also been revealed.
Construction is moving along at One Vanderbilt in Midtown, with work on the lower floors now rising past the cantilever. Thanks to images by Tectonic, we can see the tower has reached its maximum width. It is now nearly the same height as Grand Central Terminal, which peaks at 130 feet. Several companies have recently signed on for space, with Greenberg Traurig announcing plans to move their center of New York Operations into the supertall, acquiring a fifteen-year lease for four continuous floors.
It was only back in October that YIMBY reported on 53 West 53rd Street’s surpassing its 50th floor. Now, the supertall residential tower designed by Jean Nouvel is just about to top-out, with an estimate that formwork should be complete by early March, as the last concrete is poured above the 1,000-foot mark for the iconic skyscraper.
Four months after the structure topped out, we have an update for construction at 21 East 12th Street in the Greenwich Village, Manhattan. Installation of the façade is underway, having now reached up to the fifth floor.
Groundbreaking has just occurred for a ten-story affordable housing building at 985 Bruckner Boulevard in Woodstock, the Bronx. The site is one block away from the Hunts Point Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the 6 train, and eight blocks away from the Intervale Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Rainey Park is also nearby, with three baseball fields. The NYC-based non-profit Community Access is responsible for the development.
