The Landmarks Preservation Commission is set to review a renovation proposal for 675 Hudson Street, a five-story mixed-use building in the Meatpacking District of Manhattan. Designed by Mancini Duffy Architecture, the proposal outlines a number of aesthetic and structural modifications to the vernacular/Neo-Grec style building, which was originally constructed in 1849 and subsequently enlarged between 1854-1860.

Construction is progressing on 240 Broadway, a five-story commercial conversion project in South Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Designed by Mancini Duffy and developed by ZB Capital Group, which acquired the property for $20.1 million, the project involves the renovation of the 36,254-square-foot 19th century cast iron building’s façade and conversion of its 24 loft units into three stories of coworking space and a two-story restaurant and rooftop bar operated by Freehold Brooklyn. Spring Rock, LLC is the general contractor for the property, which is located on an interior lot between Roebling and Havemeyer Streets, directly across from the elevated Marcy Avenue subway station servicing the J, M, and Z trains.
Construction is complete on 155 West 29th Street, an 18-story Public Storage facility in Chelsea, Manhattan. Designed by Mancini Duffy Architects and developed by The Davis Companies along with joint venture partner Highland Development Ventures, the 180,000-square-foot structure contains 6,000 storage units. Cauldwell Wingate was the contractor for the project, which is located between Sixth and Seventh Avenues.
The Paradox Museum has opened its doors at New Jersey’s American Dream Mall in East Rutherford. Completed by JRM Construction Management with architect Mancini Duffy, the 11,000-square-foot facility features more than 70 interactive digital and immersive exhibits for both children and adults.
Construction on TSX Broadway, a 47-story hotel tower at 1568 Broadway in Times Square, reached a milestone as crews turned on TSX Entertainment’s 18,000-square-foot podium LED display. Designed by Perkins Eastman and Mancini Duffy and developed by L&L Holding Company and Fortress Investment Group, the 550,000-square-foot structure will yield 661 hotel rooms operated by Tempo by Hilton, as well as 100,000 square feet of retail space on the lower levels and Times Square’s only cantilevering outdoor performance stage. Positioned above the new retail space is the historic Palace Theater, which was renovated by PBDW Architects and lifted 30 feet above street level in early 2022. Pavarini McGovern is the general contractor for the property, which is located at the corner of Seventh Avenue and West 47th Street.
