Construction is nearing the halfway mark at 533 Mercer Street, aka 289 Jordan, in Jersey City. The superstructure has been steadily rising and will eventually top out as one of the tallest buildings to the west of the main downtown district. The 16-story structure is designed by Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects and developed by Mercer Jordan LLC, an affiliate of New York-based company Sequoia Development Group, GRID Real Estate, and Dresdner Robin. The mixed-use project is expected to contain 300 apartments.
The terracotta and bronze façade has reached the bottom of the steel crown of SHoP Architects‘ 111 West 57th Street, the second-tallest project in YIMBY’s construction countdown. Developed by JDS Development, Property Markets Group, and Spruce Capital Partners, the 1,428-foot-tall residential skyscraper features a height-to-width ratio of 24:1, making it the most slender building in the world. A total of 46 condominiums will be created and marketed by Douglas Elliman. Studio Sofield is the interior designer.
Permits have been filed for an 11-story mixed-use building at 668 East Fordham Road in Belmont, The Bronx. Located at the corner of Cambreleng Avenue and East Fordham Road, the lot is near the Fordham MetroNorth station and the Fordham Road subway station, serviced by the B and D trains. Shahin Daneshvar under the Shadi Development LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Workers are forming the last floors of an eight-story, ten-unit building at 128 East 28th Street in NoMad. The low-rise residential building made quick progress since YIMBY checked in on the site in June, when excavation was still ongoing. TRA Studio is the designer and Sinha Development is the developer of the 80-foot-tall, 21,038-square-foot project.
