Permits have been filed for a 34-story hotel building at 150 West 48th Street in Midtown, Manhattan. Located between Sixth Avenue and Seventh Avenue, the lot is steps from the 47-50 Streets Rockefeller Center subway station, serviced by the B, D, F, and M trains and the 49th Street station, serviced by the N, R, and W trains. Hotel developer Sam Chang of McSam Hotel Group is listed as the owner behind the applications, after paying $140 million to purchase the property earlier this year.
Demolition work is continuing at 270 Park Avenue, where JP Morgan Chase is tearing down its current 707-foot-tall headquarters to construct a new 1,425-foot-tall, 2.5-million-square-foot home. Designed by Foster + Partners, the future Midtown East supertall is the fifth-tallest project underway in New York City.
Construction is moving along at 66 Hudson Boulevard, aka The Spiral, the eighth-tallest skyscraper under construction in New York City in YIMBY’s annual countdown. Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group, the massive commercial office tower is rapidly ascending toward its 1,031-foot-tall parapet over the Midtown neighborhood of Hudson Yards. Tishman Speyer is the developer, Turner Construction Company is the construction manager, and Banker Steel is in charge of fabricating the 66-story, $3.7 billion supertall.
The steel superstructure is continuing to rise skyward at 50 Hudson Yards, the number-nine project on YIMBY’s countdown of the tallest buildings under construction in New York City. Workers have made a significant amount of progress since we checked in one year ago, when foundations were just beginning to make their way toward street level. Now, a mass of steel beams, columns, and trusses for the wide floor plates are ascending around the reinforced concrete core. Designed by Norman Foster of Foster + Partners, the 1,011-foot-tall commercial office supertall is the final segment of the first phase of Related Companies‘ Hudson Yards complex. Oxford Properties and Mitsui Fudosan are developing the 2.9-million-square-foot structure, the largest component in the 28-acre master plan by volume.
Installation of the curtain wall has begun on the lower podium floors of 145 West 47th Street, as the reinforced concrete superstructure continues to rise above the streets of Times Square. Designed by Berg + Moss Architects and developed by Tribeach Holdings, the 27-story building that will eventually house a 343-room RIU Hotel. 145 West 47th Street is expected to yield 141,500 square feet of newly built space.
