Five buildings have now been demolished at 75-83 Nassau Street, just a block away from the Fulton Street transportation hub in the center of the Financial District. The activity will make way for Lexin Capital’s proposed 40-story residential skyscraper designed by ODA. New building permits are still awaiting approval, but recent activity on site suggests increasing momentum toward actual construction.

Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 980 Westchester Avenue, in Foxhurst, The Bronx. The site is one to two blocks away from the Simpson Street subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Peter Fine of Atlantic Building will be responsible for the development.

Few towers have as much separation from the rest of the Manhattan skyline as the Lower East Side’s One Manhattan Square. The building is without competition for views, rising 72 stories above one of New York’s most well-known neighborhoods. The next highest structure in its immediate vicinity is the Manhattan Bridge, which spans the East River into Brooklyn. Extell Development Company is responsible for the development, and Lendlease is responsible for construction.
