In May of 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of Fortis Property Group’s residential tower at 151 Maiden Lane, in the Financial District, and we brought you additional images of the project that October. At the time, the tower was planned to be 51 stories tall, but now the structure is expected to rise 60 stories and 670 feet in height, according to Curbed. Dubbed One Seaport, the project will contain 80 condos, featuring a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom units, which are being designed by S. Russel Groves. Sales are expected to launch in the fall. In July, YIMBY revealed the 33-story, 271-key hotel planned next door.
The latest numbers from the DOB show a major increase in year-over-year filings for August, and 2015’s running total has once again surpassed 2014’s, after falling behind in July.

Bushwick has rebounded from decades of abandonment and disinvestment, and developers now flock to a corner of the neighborhood dotted with vacant lots: the Myrtle-Wyckoff stop on the L and M trains.

YIMBY revealed the first renderings of Sky — a 60-story, 1,175-unit rental apartment building at 605 West 42nd Street, in Midtown West — early in 2014, and we chronicled the tower’s construction throughout the same year. Today, the tower is nearly complete, with the exception of the missing glass along the base, and YIMBY can now share two additional renderings. The 1.2-million square-foot tower’s highest point reaches 656 feet above 42nd Street, and its unit count makes it the largest residential building in New York City.
