Macklowe’s 200 East 59th Street Nears Completion On The Upper East Side

Harry Macklowe’s most prominent project to date is certainly 432 Park Avenue, on the corner of 57th Street. But two blocks to the northeast, the developer’s CetraRuddy-designed tower at 200 East 59th Street is making a mark of its own, and is now almost complete. While the 35-story and 490-foot-tall tower may not be quite as tall as its sibling to the south, the concrete design has become another attractive addition to the Manhattan skyline, and today we have a look thanks to photos by DBOX.

Leasing Begins for 280 Ashland Place, Downtown Brooklyn

As YIMBY reported back in October, construction is nearly complete for the 12-story 280 Ashland Place, in the Downtown Cultural District of Brooklyn, and now, leasing has officially commenced.

Jonathan Rose Companies LLC is behind the building, which had previously gone by the address of 15 Lafayette Avenue.

Soon-To-Be Supertall 35 Hudson Yards Passes Halfway Point In Rise

Supertall office towers are nearing a dime a dozen in Hudson Yards, with 30 Hudson Yards already passing the 984-foot mark, and 1 Manhattan West, The Spiral, and 50 Hudson Yards set to eclipse it over the next few years. While most of the neighborhood’s residential towers have been a few steps behind their larger companions along 57th Street, the Skidmore, Owings & Merrill-designed 35 Hudson Yards will be the first to pass the threshold. Now, the building has passed the halfway mark, and as its exterior installation has also progressed, the future icon is quickly gaining prominence on the Midtown West skyline.

Images Revealed for 127 West 112th Street, Harlem

An imaged displayed onsite at 127 West 112th Street has provided YIMBY with a good look at the future design.

The material used will probably be brick, with the possibility of metal paneling for accents. Three trees will be planted outside the building. Karl Fischer is responsible for the design.
