On September 19, Covenant House broke ground on its first supportive housing development in 47 years. Located at 460 West 41st Street in Midtown West, the 80,000-square-foot facility is designed by FXCollaborative. According to permits filed last year, the structure will stand 164 feet tall and contain 80,290 square feet, with 53,053 square feet dedicated to community facility space. The building should also comprise 60 units averaging approximately 884 square feet.
This week Boston Properties filed permits for a 56-story commercial building at 3 Hudson Boulevard, also known as 400 Eleventh Avenue in Hudson Yards, Manhattan. Located between 34th and 35th Streets, the empty lot is one block from the 34th Street-Hudson Yards subway station, serviced by the 7 train. The proposed 888-foot-tall tower will yield 1,538,210 square feet of commercial space.
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.
The glass curtain wall is rising quickly on 77 Greenwich Street, a mixed-use residential project in the Financial District. FXCollaborative is the designer and Trinity Place Holdings is the developer of the 500-foot-tall reinforced concrete skyscraper, which is topped out at 42 stories. The project will feature 90 condominiums ranging from one- to four-bedroom layouts with interiors by Deborah Berke Partners.
YIMBY went to check on the construction progress at 185 Broadway, a new 31-story residential tower in the Financial District designed by FXCollaborative and developed by SL Green. The 260,000-square-foot mixed-use tower is located at the southwestern corner of Dey Street and Broadway, directly next to one of the entrances to the Fulton Street subway station. Pilings and excavation are currently happening.
