Construction has topped out on Queens Plaza Park, aka Sven, a 762-foot-tall mixed-use skyscraper at 29-37 41st Avenue in Long Island City. Designed by Handel Architects for The Durst Organization, the 67-story tower now stands as the second-tallest building in Queens.
Work is nearing completion on 45 East 7th Street, a seven-story residential building from Morris Adjmi Architects in the East Village. Developed by Immobiliare Capital, Premier Equities, and Nexus Building Development Group, the project required approvals and insight from the Landmarks Preservation Commission before work proceeded on the property, which sold for $9.15 million in 2017. The edifice will contain 21 condominiums marketed by The Tavivian Team from Douglas Elliman and range from one-, two-, and three-bedroom layouts. There will also be ground-floor retail.
Permits have been filed for a 40-story mixed-use high-rise at 111 Willoughby Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Located between Bridge Street and Duffield Street, the interior lot is a five-minute walk from the Jay Street-MetroTech subway station, serviced by the A, C, F, and R trains and the Hoyt Street station, serviced by the 2 and 3 trains. The Michaels Organization under the 111 Willoughby Developer LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Installation of the warm-colored travertine façade is continuing on The XI, a twisting pair of 36- and 26-story residential structures at 76 Eleventh Avenue in Chelsea. Designed by Danish architect Bjarke Ingels of Bjarke Ingels Group and developed by HFZ Capital Group, the 908,250-square-foot complex stands along the Hudson River waterfront just west of the High Line. The project will yield 236 condominiums and a 137-room Six Senses Hotel Resort Spa, the first location in the United States. Omnibuild is in charge of the construction and Douglas Elliman is handling sales and marketing.
Progress is continuing on the 180-foot-tall northern wing of the Jacob K. Javits Center in Midtown West. Designed by TVSdesign and developed by Empire State Development Corporation, the $1.5 billion, 1.2-million-square-foot addition will raise the facility’s total span to 3.3 million square feet. Lendlease and Turner Construction Company are working together to assemble the Hudson Yards project while the developer is aiming for LEED certification.
