Work continues on the renovation of PENN2, a 31-story mid-century commercial building at Two Penn Plaza in Midtown, Manhattan. Designed by MdeAS Architects and developed by Vornado Realty Trust, the project involves a full-scale overhaul of the 412-foot-tall structure’s 1.61 million square feet of office space, replacement of its façade with a modern glass curtain wall, and the construction of a multi-story cantilevering volume along Seventh Avenue. GMSLLP is the façade consultant and Turner Construction Company and Skanska are the contractors for the property, which is located between West 31st and West 33rd Streets and a central part of the Penn District revitalization that will transform the area surrounding Penn Station and Madison Square Garden.
At number 27 on our year-end countdown is 356 Fulton Street, a 43-story mixed-use skyscraper in Downtown Brooklyn. Designed by MdeAS Architects and SLCE Architects and developed by Extell, who paid and signed an $85.9 million long-term ground lease to take over the site from The Feil Organization, the 496-foot-tall structure will yield 475,000 square feet with 421 residential units and 100,000 square feet of commercial retail space. Titan Industrial SVC Corp. is in charge of demolition at the property, which has two more buildings to tear down, and is located at the corner of Fulton Street and Red Hook Lane.
