Exterior work is getting closer to completion on 425 Park Avenue, an 897-foot-tall office skyscraper in Midtown East. Designed by Norman Foster of Foster + Partners and developed by L&L Holding Company LLC with Adamson Associates as the architect of record, the building stands 47 stories tall and will span 666,996 square feet.
Construction has topped out on 212 West 93rd Street, a 14-story condominium building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. The project is designed by Eran Chen, head of ODA, and developed by Landsea Homes and Leyton Properties, which acquired the 9,000-square-foot plot from the Shaare Zedek Congregation for $34.3 million. The property will contain 20 units designed by GRADE New York and marketed by The Lindsey Stokes Team, a division within real estate brokerage Compass.
Curtain wall installation is progressing on Hillrose 28, a 20-story residential building at 157-161 East 28th Street in Kips Bay. Designed by C3D Architecture and developed by Forkosh Development, the 191-foot-tall structure spans 66,125 square feet and will contain 43 units designed by Lemay + Escobar and marketed by Corcoran Sunshine.
Exterior work is progressing on 1100 Avenue of the Americas, a 15-story office building at the corner of West 42nd Street and Sixth Avenue, directly across from Bryant Park. Brookfield Properties is the developer of the 386,190-square-foot structure, which is receiving an interior renovation and façade redesign by MdeAS Architects. As revealed in renderings released last fall, the new glass curtain wall will be much lighter and more transparent than the original reflective envelope. The property will contain 357,940 square feet of commercial office space and 11,239 square feet of ground-floor retail area. Aecom Tishman is the general contractor.
Construction appears to have stalled at 128 East 28th Street, an eight-story, ten-unit building in NoMad. Not much progress has occurred since our last update in late December, when the reinforced concrete superstructure was nearing topping out, and work has yet to begin on the undulating metal and glass curtain wall. TRA Studio is the designer and Sinha Development is the developer of the 80-foot-tall, 21,038-square-foot project.
