Façade installation is moving along on 131-141 East 47th Street, a 34-story residential skyscraper in Midtown East. Designed by Ismael Leyva Architects and developed by Hopson Development Holdings, the 500-foot-tall structure will yield 191 condominium units in studio to two-bedroom layouts, as well as 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Structure Tech New York and Cauldwell Wingate are in charge of constructing the tower, which is located between Lexington and Third Avenues.
Occupancy has begun at The Selby, a 237-unit apartment complex at 695 Merrick Avenue in Westbury, New York. The complex is the latest residential development from The Beechwood Organization, a Long Island-based developer that has built nearly 10,000 homes since the 1980s.
Foundation work is progressing at 346 Kent Avenue, the site of a pair of residential towers in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Designed by Ismael Leyva Architects and developed by Two Trees, the project is known as Site D in the Domino Sugar master plan from SHoP Architects and James Corner Field Operations and will consist of 36- and 31-story towers rising from a shared eight-story podium. 346 Kent Construction is the general contractor for the property, which is bound by Kent Avenue to the east and River Street and Domino Park to the west. An adjacent landscaped public plaza will be built to the north between 346 Kent Avenue and the former Domino Sugar Refinery at 292 Kent Avenue.
