Exterior work is wrapping up on One South First, the tallest new building to be constructed in the Williamsburg waterfront development of Domino Park. Formally addressed as 260 Kent Avenue, the reinforced concrete structure rises on the northern end of the master plan and is part of the large-scale revitalization of the Domino Sugar factory site. The 435-foot-tall mixed-use project will soon yield 330 rentals, 66 affordable units, and 150,000 square feet of office space among 22 floors, as well as 13,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. COOKFOX is the architect of the tower and Two Trees Management is the developer.
Breaking Ground, New York’s largest supportive housing provider, is set to begin construction this week on Betances Residence, a new supportive, affordable housing property at 443 East 142nd Street in Mott Haven, The Bronx. Designed by COOKFOX, Betances Residence is expected to debut in 2021 and will contain 152 units for the formerly homeless and low-income seniors.
Following almost a decade of development, Jeff Greene’s residential conversion of 100 Vandam Street in Hudson Square, Manhattan has officially topped out. Designed by COOKFOX Architects, the 330-foot building artfully repurposes a 131-year-old coal power plant as a partial podium for 19 stories of new construction above.
Construction is rapidly ascending at 39 West 23rd Street, a 24-story, ground-up residential structure in the Flatiron District. Designed by COOKFOX Architects and developed by Anbau Enterprises, the project consists of two towers, one along West 23rd Street and a second superstructure at the back of the property. A central landscaped courtyard will sit between each reinforced concrete building.
Work is charging toward the finish line at 25 Park Row, a 50-story residential skyscraper that has topped out over the Financial District. The curtain wall is rapidly rising and closing in on the nearly completed crown. The project is being designed by COOKFOX Architects and developed by L+M Development Partners. Sales for the 110 residences have already launched and are being handled and marketed by Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group.
