The last time YIMBY checked in on the new 58-story and 800-foot tall tower coming to 111 Murray Street, the building was just creeping above ground level. Now, a little over two months later, the structure is already climbing past its 15th floor, with the latest update thanks to YIMBY Forumer Kevin LeClerc.

A major step forward for the New York City skyline was taken on Tuesday morning. Elected officials joined developers to celebrate the official groundbreaking for One Vanderbilt.
A year ago, SL Green began knocking down a full block of prewar commercial buildings next to Grand Central to make way for a 1,401-foot-tall office tower at One Vanderbilt Avenue. Now YIMBY has a time lapse of the lengthy demolition between 42nd and 43rd Streets, courtesy of the project’s PR team.
Construction is a single floor away from topping out at 301 Freedom Place South, located between West 61st and 62nd streets on the southern end of the Upper West Side. That’s where a 10-story, 179,863-square-foot Collegiate School, a private, all-boys prep school, is under construction. The progress can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. A theater, a gymnasium, a fitness center, and a cafeteria will be located on the ground and cellar levels. Classrooms will span the second through ninth floors, with a library on the fifth floor. The 143-foot-tall structure has been designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox. Completion is expected in 2017.
Since topping out at 777 feet above street level in May, much of 45 East 22nd Street‘s façade has been installed, with the exception of where there’s a construction elevator and support structures for the crane. The latest photos are courtesy of construction photographer Tectonic via the YIMBY Forums. The most recent building permits indicate the Flatiron District tower has 59 real floors and measures 372,684 square feet. Its 83 residential units will be condominiums, configured in simplex, duplex, full-floor, and penthouse layouts. The Continuum Company is the developer. Kohn Pedersen Fox is the design architect, while Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is the architect of record. Martin Brudnizki Design Studio is handling the interiors and Oehme van Sweden is the landscape architect. Completion is expected in 2017.
