The 200,000-square-foot, 60-story, reinforced concrete tower is designed by Hill West Architects and being developed by Fortis Property Group LLC. Ray Builders is the current contractor for the project, while Groves & Co is serving as the interior designer. Douglas Elliman Development Marketing is handling sales of the units.

Brookfield Properties has officially announced its Bankside mixed-use project in Mott Haven, near the southern tip of The Bronx. The development includes seven residential buildings, 34,000 square feet of public waterfront space along the Harlem River, 15,000 square feet of retail, and a mix of community facilities.
The glass curtain wall on 7 West 57th Street’s main southern elevation is finished. Work is nearing completion on the 19-story mixed-use residential building, designed by Hill West Architects and developed by Solow Realty & Development Group, which purchased the property 14 years ago for $25,550,000. Vidaris is the envelope consultant for the 237-foot-tall project.
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.
Buyers are now moving into a newly complete condominium building at 91 Leonard Street in TriBeCa, Manhattan. The structure was completed earlier this year by Toll Brothers City Living, the urban development division of Toll Brothers, Inc.
