Permits have been filed for a nine-story commercial building at 220 11th Avenue in Hudson Yards, Manhattan. Located between 25th Street and 26th Street, the lot is about five blocks south of the 34th Street-Hudson Yards subway station, serviced by the 7 train. Developer Moinian Group is listed as the owner behind the applications. The revised permit filing calls for office space, a possible indicator of severe over-saturation of condominiums in the neighborhood. In 2016, the filing was for an 11-story, 158,000-square-foot mixed-use building with 40 condos, a museum, and a restaurant.
YIMBY went on a hard hat tour of 123 Linden Boulevard in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn, which is now topped out at 26 stories. Located between Bedford Avenue and Rogers Avenue, it is currently the tallest structure in the neighborhood. Hill West Architects is the designer of the 229-foot-tall tower while the Moinian Group and Bushburg Properties are the developers. Whitehall Interiors is the interior designer while MNS is handling the leasing and marketing.
A new rendering from 3D architectural visualization studio NoTriangle depicts an updated design for Three Hudson Boulevard. The featured image shows a tall glass skyscraper that rises at nearly as high as the 1,009-foot 35 Hudson Yards. Several setbacks on the eastern and southern elevation of the future commercial office tower can be spotted. It is still being designed by FXCollaborative and developed by the Moinian Group.
Situated immediately to the north of Hudson Yards’ first phase, 3 Hudson Boulevard sits at the corner of West 34th Street and Eleventh Avenue. Seen through the crowded perimeter of trailers, trucks, and mechanical equipment, one can get a small glimpse at the amount of progress the site has made since excavation officially began about one year ago. The tower is currently the 14th-tallest skyscraper under construction in New York City, and will rise 53 floors and 940 feet to its rooftop when complete. FXCollaborative is the designer, while the Moinian Group is the developer of the two million square foot project.
When it comes to building big, The Moinian Group is one of New York City’s most notable developers. With Sky now the largest residential building in the Five Boroughs, YIMBY sat down with the firm’s CEO, Joseph Moinian, to discuss their recent work, what’s coming next, and whether the cavern under 41st Street and 11th Avenue will ever yield a subway station, as was originally intended.
