Excavators have begun to dig below street level at the site of 601 West 29th Street, aka Tower A, which will become a 695-foot-tall residential skyscraper. Our last YIMBY update was in early July, where demolition and clearing had just wrapped up at the site, which is located at the corner of West 29th Street and Eleventh Avenue. Workers are wasting no time at all with the construction of the 58-story building, which is designed by FXCollaborative and developed by Douglaston Development.
