Construction is nearly complete for the 62-story mixed-use tower named “ARO” at 242 West 53rd Street, in Midtown, Manhattan. A plethora of transit options are located near the site. The A, B, C, D, E, F, N, Q, R, W, and 1 trains can all be found within seven blocks distance. Algin Management is responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 119 Second Avenue, in the East Village. The development will rise on the site of a tragic explosion from 2015, which claimed two fatalities. After the event, three buildings were demolished and cleared. The new project will fill one of the three addresses. Nexus Development is heading the project, partnering with Immobiliare Capital and Premier Equities. According to the Real Deal, Nexus purchased 119 and 121 Second Avenue in 2017 for $9.15 million. 123 Second Avenue was sold to Ezra Wibowo in 2016.
New information has been revealed about 80 Flatbush, in Downtown Brooklyn, by Alloy Development.

Architecture Research Office will be responsible for the design of the school, to be included in the base.
New renderings have been revealed for 208 Delancey Street, a 12-story residential tower coming to the Lower East Side.

New Empire Real Estate is now going to be responsible for the development, and the change in management brought along a completely revamped design, by ODA Architecture, with Shiming Tam serving as architect of record.
