Waterline Square’s trio of towers are finally looking like their renderings. Aside from the construction hoist and a few odd windows, each building has its façade fully installed from the ground up. Once complete, the nearly 1,200-unit project will span five acres, and is being marketed as an effective mini-neighborhood enclave within the Upper West Side, with its own open park and retail market. GID Development Group is responsible for the project.

Since YIMBY last checked on Tribeca‘s 111 Murray Street, the exterior mechanical elevator has started to come down, while the ground level retail base and exterior finishes are also wrapping up. The building is officially complete, and ready for immediate occupancy.
With the Hudson Yards and Manhattan West mega developments in Midtown dominating the news, it is easy to forget one sizable project just a block away. Hudson Commons is a major transformation of an eight-story warehouse built in 1962. An additional 17 floors will be added atop the black masonry-clad tower, bringing 700,000 square feet of new office space to the neighborhood. Cove Property and Baupost Group are responsible for the development.
The soon-to-be tallest skyscraper in Brooklyn is now on the verge of truly towering heights. Since YIMBY last visited Brooklyn Point, the concrete has risen 20 additional floors above street level. The installation of several segments of the façade has added another new element, offering a glimpse at the glass and white paneling soon to dominate the borough’s skyline, at least until 9 DeKalb’s imminent rise nearby. Extell is responsible for the development.
Nearly four years after permits were filed, 111 Murray is almost entirely finished. The 792-foot tall structure will add 157 condominiums to the Lower Manhattan and Tribeca market. After applications were approved in May of 2015, construction was quick to start. Now, the development by Fisher Brothers, Witkoff, and New Valley is nearing completion. All that remains to be installed of the facade are two glass panels on the southwestern edge.
