Foundation work is now underway on the 52-story, 141-unit mixed-use tower under development at 281 Fifth Avenue, located on the corner of West 30th Street in NoMad. The construction progress can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the project will stand 728 feet in height and encompass 266,963 square feet.
Three years ago, developer Read Property Group negotiated a controversial residential rezoning of the former Rheingold Brewery properties in southern Bushwick. After neighbors fought for affordable housing there, Read sold the multi-acre industrial property to Rabsky Group and All Year Management, who didn’t have to honor Read’s promises for low income rentals. Now All Year Management is pushing forward with construction on its two pieces of the site, at 123 Melrose Street and 28 Stanwix Street.
General Investment & Development Companies (GID) is rebranding their three-tower mixed-use development — between West 59th and 61st streets and Freedom Place South and Riverside Boulevard, in Lincoln Square (which is technically south of the Upper West Side) — as Waterline Square.

Cammeby’s is building a massive mixed-use project next to the Trump Village co-ops on Coney Island.
