It was a little over a year ago that the Naftali Group’s mixed-use building at 210 West 77th Street, on the Upper West Side, was about to top out. Now, construction of the building is almost at the finish line.
Goldstein Hill & West Architects
Construction is now underway on the 26th floor of the planned 32-story, 440-unit mixed-use building under development at 86 Fleet Place, in Downtown Brooklyn. The progress can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by user nyc1. The latest building permits indicate the 351-foot-tall tower will eventually encompass 427,346 square feet. It will host 10,813 square feet of commercial-retail space on the ground floor, followed by residential units averaging 871 square feet apiece. Since a leasing office is included, at least a number of the units will be rental apartments. The residential amenities are listed in YIMBY’s previous March update, when the structure was a single story up. John Catsimatidis’s Red Apple Group is the developer and Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is behind the architecture. Completion is expected in 2017.
When YIMBY dove into the history of 101-111 Murray Street in TriBeCa earlier this summer, foundation work was underway for a planned 58-story, 157-unit residential tower. Construction on the project is now three stories above street level, as seen in photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by user rbrome. The latest building permits indicate the tower, to rise 800 feet, will encompass 479,278 square feet. The ground floor will host 2,088 square feet of retail, followed by residential units starting on the fourth floor. The apartments, condominiums, should average 2,356 square feet apiece. They will be accompanied by 20,000 square feet of luxury amenities. Fisher Brothers, Witkoff, and New Valley are the developers. Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates is the design architect while Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is serving as the executive architect. MR Architecture + Décor and Rockwell Group are designing the interiors, and Edmund Hollander Landscape Architects is designing the area around the base. Completion is expected in 2018.
Foundation work is underway on the 57-story, 80-unit residential tower under construction at 161 Maiden Lane, located on the corner of South Street, in the Financial District. The construction photos were taken by the project’s general contractor, Pizzarotti-IBC. Dubbed 1 Seaport, it will measure 192,473 square feet and stand 670 feet over the East River, according to the latest building permits. The residential units will be condominiums, ranging from one- to four-bedrooms, and should average 1,726 square feet apiece. Two duplex penthouses will crown the tower. Amenities include private residential storage, storage for 37 bikes, a lounge on the fourth floor, a fitness center, a children’s playroom, and a lounge, pool, and sauna on the 27th floor. YIMBY has been revealing renderings of the evolving project since 2012, with the latest batch released in the spring. Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is the architect, while Groves & Co. is the interior designer. Fortis Property Group is the developer, and construction is expected to be complete in early 2018.
