Work on 56 Leonard Street‘s amorphous mirrored “bean” sculpture has begun. The artwork sits at the base of Tribeca‘s tallest residential skyscraper designed by Herzog & de Meuron and Hill West Architects, and is the work of Anish Kapoor, the creator behind Chicago’s chrome steel-plated Cloud Gate and the ArcelorMittal Orbit from the 2012 London Summer Olympics. Construction workers are beginning to place the first portions of the bean into position with multiple sections arriving on site.

YIMBY recently went on a hard hat tour of Skyline Tower, aka 23-15 44th Drive, which has made a dramatic impact on the rapidly growing skyline of Long Island City. The reinforced concrete superstructure stands topped out at 778 feet tall and is currently the tallest skyscraper in Queens and the outer boroughs. The 67-story residential tower is designed by Hill West Architects and developed by United Construction & Development Group, FSA Capital, and Risland US Holdings LLC. Modern Spaces is the exclusive marketing and sales agency for the 802 residences, which are designed by Whitehall Interiors and will range in price from $500,000 to $4 million.

Located on the corner of Third Avenue and 23rd Street, the lot is two blocks east of the 23rd Street subway station, serviced by the 6 train. SMA Equities is listed as the owner behind the applications.
130 William Street‘s signature façade has made significant progress since YIMBY’s last report in August. The charcoal-colored, concrete-cast arches are now approaching the flat roof of the topped-out Financial District skyscraper. The first New York project from David Adjaye of Adjaye Associates, the 66-story tower stands 800 feet tall and will contain 242 residences. Hill West Architects is the architect of record, Lightstone is the developer, and Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is handling sales and marketing for the units, which will range in price from around $1,300,000 for a one-bedroom to $20,000,000 for a four-bedroom, full-floor penthouse.
