Downtown’s residential boom continues apace with the construction of 125 Greenwich Street, which has reached two-thirds of the way to its 912-foot-tall pinnacle on a corner overlooking the World Trade Center memorial. The tower will rise above most of its neighbors in the Financial District, but since it is right across from 1 World Trade Center, it will not make a sizable impact on the skyline. Architect Rafael Viñoly is also responsible for the Midtown supertall 432 Park Avenue.
Permits have been filed for a three-story mixed-use building at 36-25 172nd Street in Murray Hill, Queens. The site is five blocks away from the Auburndale train station, serviced by LIRR. Xuemei Yi is listed as behind the applications.
New permits have been filed for a 52-story residential building at 555 West 38th Street in the Hudson Yards district of Manhattan. While the site is across the street from the Jacob Javits Convention center, it is not immediately next to Related’s mega-development, being five blocks away from 55 Hudson Yards. Rockrose will be responsible for the development.
Details have been revealed for an enormous new 750-unit residential tower at 18 6th Avenue, in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. The site is right beside the Barclays Center and is part of Pacific Park, formerly known as Atlantic Yards, a multi-billion dollar 22-acre mega-project that has already seen the completion of four of fifteen eventual buildings. TF Cornerstone and The Brodsky Organization have also now joined Greenland Forest City Partners to finish the project, acquiring land where three of the prospective future skyscrapers will imminently rise.
Last month, permits were filed for a new building at 333 East 82nd Street on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Now, YIMBY has an exclusive first look at renderings of what will come next. The site is just three blocks from the new 2nd Avenue subway line entrance on 86th street, and Lavin Development will be responsible for the project.
