35 Hudson Yards Becomes Manhattan’s Third New Residential Supertall of 2018

The fast-paced construction of the SOM-designed 35 Hudson Yards is about to reach the roof. A year and a half ago, YIMBY reported on the building reaching the fourth floor. Now, the tower is tantalizingly close to its final, 71st story. The structure appears to have reached supertall heights, thanks to a two-story steel girder installed this week. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group are responsible for the development, which is Manhattan’s third new residential supertall of 2018.

Most significant to this update is CPT is finally reaching supertall status, i.e. 984 feet (300m) above ground. Extell Development Company and the Shanghai Municipal Investment Group are behind the project.

New Petition As Public Support Broadens for 80 Flatbush Avenue, Downtown Brooklyn

The debate regarding 80 Flatbush Avenue continues. While the project would rise across the street from what had long been Brooklyn’s tallest tower at One Hanson Place, its opponents’ attacks have escalated following YIMBY’s report on a poll showing a 3:1 margin of support, with the NIMBY group behind its creation and deletion accusing “foreign bots” of meddling in the outcome. Today, however, comes another marker of broad community support, as we have word that the Arab American Family Support Center (AAFSC) has officially endorsed the mixed-use development.
