Construction of the 40-story tall and diagrid-tipped 30 East 31st Street has finally topped out in NoMad. It is now showing off its unique crisscross exterior influenced by surrounding Gothic architecture from the 1920’s and ‘30s. Morris Adjmi Architects is responsible of the design. Along with topping out, glass installation is nearing the peak. Installation of the metal paneling has not yet started.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 1389 Broadway in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The site is one block away from the Gates Avenue subway station, serviced by the J and Z trains. Erik Ekstein of Ekstein Development will be responsible for the development.
Construction is moving along quickly at 30 East 31st Street, in Midtown South, Manhattan. Builders are working on the 40-story high-rise, which will yield views of the Empire State Building and East River. Architect Morris Adjmi is responsible for the design, taking influence from surrounding Gothic architecture for the façade, and the structure is now over halfway to its parapet.
Back in February of 2015, YIMBY reported on the initial new building applications for 30 East 31st Street, between Park and Madison Avenues, in Midtown South. In November of that year, we revealed the first rendering for the project. Since then, filings have been amended for a slight height increase of two floors, and construction has entered full swing, with the Morris Adjmi-designed skyscraper now up to its fourteenth floor per the latest photos from JC_Heights.
The nine-story Dutch LIC at 25-19 43rd Avenue has been topped out within the past month and is starting to receive exterior cladding, as red brick climbs along its eastern façade. Even in its unfinished state, the 86-unit residential project leaves a distinctive mark in Long Island City’s booming Court Square district. The design by GF55 Partners appears conventional from many angles. The building is notable for its sharp-angled south corner, anchored by a heavy steel truss at the base. Both of the striking features were conceived as responses to a challenging site. The project is built by Ekstein Development, with EFT Skyline Construction LLC serving as the general contractor.
