Construction has passed the halfway mark on The Charlotte, aka 25 Columbus Drive, a 57-story mixed-use skyscraper in Jersey City. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by Mack-Cali with Fogarty Finger as the interior architect, the building will eventually stand 626 feet tall.
Curtain wall installation is closing in on the 754-foot-tall pinnacle of 537 Summit Avenue, the second and tallest skyscraper in the three-tower Journal Squared complex in Jersey City. Designed by HWKN/Hollwich Kushner and Handel Architects and developed by Kushner Real Estate Group, the buildings stand out dramatically from their isolated position west of downtown.
Work on the installation of the glass and brick fenestration for 460 Main Street, aka Riverwalk 8, has reached the roof parapet. Now most of the activity has shifted to finishing the ground-floor exterior of the 21-story, 341-unit building, located on Roosevelt Island and designed by Handel Architects. This will be the eighth component in the nine-building Riverwalk Park rental complex, which is developed as a joint venture between Related Companies and Hudson Companies.
Permits have been filed for a 22-story mixed-use building at 33 Commercial Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Located between 7 Bell Slip and the future Box Street Park as part of the Greenpoint Landing complex, the interior lot is closest to the Greenpoint Avenue subway station, serviced by the G train. Guy Morton, vice-president of construction at Park Tower Group is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Construction is getting close to topping out at Queens Plaza Park, aka Sven, a 755-foot-tall residential skyscraper at 27-29 Queens Plaza North in Long Island City, Queens. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by The Durst Organization, the reflective glass curtain is also nearing the halfway mark of the concave-shaped superstructure. Selldorf Architects is the interior designer for the 67-story project, which is alternately addressed as 29-37 41st Avenue.
