A recently completed Environmental Assessment Study reveals detailed floor plans and scope of renovation for the historic Windemere Building in Hell’s Kitchen. Located at 400 West 57th Street on Ninth Avenue, the property was constructed in 1881 by developer Henry Sterling Goodale and is recognized as the area’s first large multi-family apartment complex.
Construction is continuing to rise on Two Manhattan West, a 935-foot-tall commercial skyscraper in Midtown West. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill and developed by Brookfield, the 58-story office tower stands at the corner of West 31st Street and Ninth Avenue, directly to the south of One Manhattan West, its 996-foot-tall architecturally identical sibling. The building will yield 2 million square feet and is expected to cost $2 billion.
Exterior work is progressing on Park House, an eight-story residential building at 500 West 22nd Street in West Chelsea. Alternately addressed as 197 Tenth Avenue, the 33,662-square-foot structure is designed by Annabelle Selldorf of Selldorf Architects and developed by Brantwood Capital, and will yield ten units and 1,959 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Compass is handling sales and marketing for the homes, which range from one- to four-bedroom units, including two duplex penthouses, with prices ranging from $2.65 million to $12 million. The property is located at the intersection of Tenth Avenue and West 22nd Street, a short distance from the High Line.
Phillips, a British-based auction house, will soon open a new Manhattan outpost at 432 Park Avenue in Midtown. The gallery and salesroom is slated to debut this June and will comprise over 35,000 square feet.
Façade installation is progressing on Foster + Partners‘ 50 Hudson Yards, a 1,011-foot commercial supertall in Hudson Yards. Developed by Related Companies and Oxford Properties, the 58-story office skyscraper is the final structure in the first phase of Hudson Yards and is to be the largest structure by volume, yielding 2.9 million square feet. The site is bound by West 34th Street to the north, Tenth Avenue to the east, West 33rd Street to the south, and Hudson Boulevard to the west.
