Developer Tishman Speyer has released renderings for 99 Hudson Boulevard, a 44-story office building at Hudson Yards. The site sits along 11th Avenue between West 36th Street and West 37th Street. Tishman had to first buy two adjacent lots, 34-444 11th Avenue and 550 West 37th Street. The proposed 1.3-million-square-foot structure is the company’s second office project in the area after 66 Hudson Boulevard, aka The Spiral, which sits diagonally across from Bella Abzug Park.
Construction on the Hilton Grand Vacation Hotel has topped out at 12 East 48th Street. The 31-story project is being designed by Handel Architects and developed by Hidrock Realty. There will be a total of 161 rooms, an outdoor terrace, and ground-floor retail space. The site was part of a $47 million purchase several years ago. A reinforced concrete structure makes up the frame of the building, which will be clad with white metallic panels.
Demolition has begun on the building that currently stands at 10-14 West 57th Street to clear the way for a 52-story mixed-use skyscraper, according to permits filed in early February. Scaffolding has been assembled and black construction netting now shrouds the entire low-rise structure.
An updated preliminary rendering has been revealed for 41-05 29th Street. The site is located in Long Island City, Queens and will eventually be home to a 24-story mixed-use residential development with ground-floor retail. An excavator and a piling machine were also seen on the triangular corner lot. The property sits at the confluence of 29th Street and 41st Avenue and also happens to be located across the street from Queens Plaza Park, which will become the second-tallest building in the downtown neighborhood upon completion. The tower at 41-05 29th Street is being designed by Fogarty Finger and developed by SB Development Group.
Recent photos from the site of 31 West 57th Street show the property still bereft of construction activity. The perimeter along West 57th Street has been boarded up and plastered with black-and-white geometric art patterns, but not much has happened since the demolition of the original Rizzoli Bookstore and several other old low-rise buildings. 27-33 West 57th Street is among the most sought-after parcels of land along 57th Street, aka Billionaires’ Row, and it could still sprout a fairly tall skyscraper. The lot sits immediately to the west of the Solow Building and is slated to be developed by the LeFrak Organization.
