The last time YIMBY checked on progress at Extell’s Central Park Tower, rising at 217 West 57th Street, glass installation had just begun, and the building was several floors above its cantilever. Three months later, the supertall’s superstructure is pushing towards its halfway point, and stands over 700 feet above the streets below. New renderings for the project have also appeared alongside its partially-launched website, giving a better idea of interiors, as well as the nighttime lighting scheme.
While topping-out ceremonies are usually reserved for buildings, today, Related Companies is installing the final piece for The Vessel, designed by Thomas Heatherwick, which will become the defining public art statement atop the redevelopment of the Hudson Railyards. The sculpture is already practically complete, and stands 150 feet to its parapet.
Construction is moving swiftly at 570 Broome Street, and the 25-story high-rise has officially topped-out. YIMBY last reported on the site a month and a half ago when renderings of interiors and the lobby were revealed. The site is rising in Hudson Square, which is rapidly filling with new residential developments following a comprehensive rezoning passed earlier this decade.
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.
It’s no longer just a rendering; the 54-story Eagle Electric Factory’s redevelopment at 43-22 Queens Street almost has its full façade, as construction nears the finish line. YIMBY last reported on the project one year ago, when construction had reached the 18th floor. Now, the tower isn’t far off from releasing its 790 new rental apartments, which average 763 square feet apiece. Rockrose Development is responsible for development.
