Jeanne Gang’s 620-foot-tall, 57-story skyscraper at 11 Hoyt Street in Downtown Brooklyn is almost fully wrapped in its signature wavy curtain wall. The bright precast façade and large, square glass windows have only two floors remaining before the dynamic, rippling appearance of the cladding is fully realized. Tishman Speyer is the developer and Hill West is the architect of record for the Studio Gang-designed residential project. Edmund Hollander of Hollander Design is in charge of the landscaping for the outdoor green space above the motor courtyard and podium section.
New renderings from Hill West Architects have been released for New Rochelle‘s first skyscraper. YIMBY first reported on the permit filing in June for the massive two-tower project located at 11 Lawton Street in the city’s downtown area. Details for the mixed-use development include a 605-foot-tall, 48-story residential tower with 143 condo units and 453 rental units. A secondary 23-story tower will contain a 190-room hotel.
The unique curtain wall of 130 William Street has climbed past the halfway mark of the topped-out 800-foot-tall skyscraper. Located in the Financial District, the reinforced concrete tower is David Adjaye’s first high-rise in New York City. Hill West Architects is the architect of record, while Lightstone Group is the developer of the 66-story residential project. Unit prices for the 242 residences range from around $1,300,000 for a one-bedroom to $20,000,000 for a four-bedroom, full-floor penthouse. Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is handling sales and marketing of the homes.
Installation of the reflective glass curtain wall of One Seaport, aka 161 Maiden Lane, is finally progressing in the Financial District. The slender, reinforced concrete superstructure stands 60 stories high and is located to the immediate south of the South Street Seaport District. The 200,000-square-foot project is being designed by Hill West Architects and developed by Fortis Property Group LLC, with Ray Builders as the current contractor. Groves & Co is serving as the interior designer and Douglas Elliman is handling sales of the units.
