The 68-story, 720-foot-tall skyscraper Brooklyn Point is on pace for its 2020 debut as work on its façade is wrapping up in Downtown Brooklyn. The Extell development also known as 138 Willoughby Street is designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox with SLCE Architects as the architect of record, and is part of the third and final phase of the City Point complex. Closings for the 458 residential units, which range from studios to three-bedroom units, are expected to begin early next year with pricing starting at $850,000. AD 100 designer Katherine Newman is in charge of the interior design.
Kohn Pedersen Fox
YIMBY got a sneak peek of the views from One Vanderbilt‘s future three-story, indoor and outdoor observatory, which is situated 1,020 feet above Midtown East. The upcoming 77-story supertall office skyscraper is designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and developed by SL Green. The tapering steel structure will soon terminate in a staggered, illuminated crown topped with an architectural spire that will push the project’s total height to 1,401 feet.
Work on 15, 30, and 35 Hudson Yards in the first phase of Related Companies’ master plan is wrapping up, as the construction elevator hoists on the exterior of the skyscrapers are in the process of being dismantled. The fast pace of construction at the $25 billion Midtown site was followed by a number of milestone completions, dedication ceremonies, and openings. 15 Hudson Yards is designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Rockwell Group, 30 Hudson Yards by Kohn Pedersen Fox, and 35 Hudson Yards by Skidmore Owings & Merrill.
New York-based developer Extell has surpassed another milestone for 138 Willoughby Street, aka Brooklyn Point, in Downtown Brooklyn. Construction workers have now lifted and assembled the steel frame for the highest residential infinity-edge pool in the western hemisphere. The 27-foot-long pool is now in place on the roof deck of the 68-story, 720-foot-tall skyscraper, part of the third and final phase of the City Point complex.
One Vanderbilt has reached a significant milestone in Midtown East. Construction has begun on the setbacks that will form the signature crown and hold the architectural spire for the supertall office building. White steel beams that make up the sloped top of the setback are visible on the western elevation, while the core walls are also rising and can be seen from a distance. Kohn Pedersen Fox is the architect and SL Green is the developer of the future 58-story tower, which will stand 1,401 feet when finished and yield nearly 1.75 million square feet of commercial space.
