The Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group have revealed the collection of commissioned artwork that will soon be installed within the Hudson Yards mega-complex in Manhattan. The selected installations are envisioned as an enhancement of Midtown West’s existing “cultural corridor,” which includes the Whitney Museum.
As reported by YIMBY in August of 2018, GDS Development filed permits to develop a 22-floor commercial tower at the corner of 31st Street and Broadway. Renderings have finally arrived from architects Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill (SOM) and reveal a minimalist, glowing façade and several open-air terraces.
Preliminary renderings have surfaced for a new 25-story Marriott hotel tower designed by architect Danny Forster Design Studio. From developer Arisa Realty, the 220-key hotel is located at 432 West 31st Street and is expected to top-out at 25 stories.
Construction has kicked-off on Pendry Hotels’ premier New York City location, at 4 Manhattan West. The 21-story hotel is officially named Pendry Manhattan West, and will offer 164 guest rooms and a selection of condominiums positioned on the tower’s upper levels.
There are few places better than Central Park to truly appreciate the scale of New York City. The cliff-like transition from Midtown to Olmsted’s masterpiece is part of what attracts people to the city, and it’s only getting more dramatic. Today YIMBY has a fresh rendering by Jose Hernandez, based on a photograph by Andrew Campbell Nelson from the Met’s Rooftop Garden, which reveals exactly how the skyline is expected to change through 2022 and currently appears in an exhibit at The Skyscraper Museum, in Lower Manhattan.
