Exterior work is nearing completion on Lantern House, a pair of residential buildings straddling the High Line at 515 West 18th Street in Chelsea. Developed by Related Companies and designed by Thomas Heatherwick with SLCE Architects as the architect of record, the ten- and 21-story structures yield a total of 181 residential units with sales and marketing led by Related Sales LLC and Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group. Lantern House is bound by Tenth Avenue the east, West 18th Street to the south, West 19th Street to the north, and Frank Gehry’s IAC Building immediately to the west.
Last week Camber Property Group and Westhab announced the topping out of 913 East Tremont Avenue, a 100-percent affordable rental development in The Bronx’s West Farms neighborhood. Components of the 11-story, 98,846-square-foot development include 119 housing units and 6,500 square feet of commercial space. The building is designed by Aufgang Architects and is being constructed by SD Builders.
In an exclusive reveal, new renderings from ODA offer a first look at The Collective’s forthcoming New York City flagship in North Brooklyn. Located at 555 Broadway on the border of South Williamsburg and Broadway Triangle, the building will top out at 28 stories and contain a mix of rental apartments, short-stay rooms, shared office space, retail, community facilities, and a collection of amenity spaces.
Curtain wall work is continuing to shape up at 39 West 23rd Street, a 24-story residential development in the Flatiron District. Designed by COOKFOX Architects and developed by Anbau Enterprises, the project consists of two structures spanning between West 23rd and West 24th Streets, separated by a private interior courtyard. The site sits almost directly in the center of a rectangular parcel bound by Fifth Avenue to the east and Sixth Avenue to the west.
Excavation has begun at 241 West 28th Street, the site of a 22-story, 479-unit residential project in Chelsea. Designed by COOKFOX for MAG Partners, Atalaya, Safanad, and Qualitas, the two-tower development is progressing due to $173 million in construction financing arranged by Maverick Commercial Properties. MAG Partners acquired the property, which is located between Seventh and Eighth Avenues, in December 2018 and established a 99-year ground lease with Edison Properties. Thirty percent of the residential units will be reserved for low- and middle-income households.
