Developer Flaneur Hospitality recently revealed renderings and a new name for 250 Fifth Avenue. Now known as “The Fifth Avenue Hotel,” the NoMad project is being designed by Perkins Eastman, PBDW Architects, and Martin Brudnizki Design Studio and involves the restoration of a 115-year-old former bank designed by McKim, Mead & White, and the construction of an adjacent 230-foot-tall, 24-story ground-up building.
The Greenpoint, aka 21 India Street, is nearing full completion and available for immediate occupancy in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The glass, steel, and brick façade is complete and the waterfront landscaping across from the main entrance was recently finished, featuring rolling hills, shrubbery, and seating with views of Midtown. The 392-foot-tall, 454,502-square-foot waterfront property is designed by Ismael Leyva Architects and developed by Mack Real Estate Group and Palin Enterprises, while Corcoran Sunshine is leading of sales and marketing for the structure’s 95 units.
YIMBY went on a tour of Greenwich West, aka 110 Charlton Street, a 30-story residential building nearing completion in Hudson Square. Installation of the hand-laid brick masonry is nearly finished on the structure, which is designed by Francoise of Loci Anima along with Adamson Associates. The project is being developed by Strategic Capital, Cape Advisors, and Forum Absolute Capital Partners, while Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is handling sales for the building’s 170 units.
YIMBY recently went on a hard hat tour of Skyline Tower, aka 23-15 44th Drive, which has made a dramatic impact on the rapidly growing skyline of Long Island City. The reinforced concrete superstructure stands topped out at 778 feet tall and is currently the tallest skyscraper in Queens and the outer boroughs. The 67-story residential tower is designed by Hill West Architects and developed by United Construction & Development Group, FSA Capital, and Risland US Holdings LLC. Modern Spaces is the exclusive marketing and sales agency for the 802 residences, which are designed by Whitehall Interiors and will range in price from $500,000 to $4 million.
Construction on Rose Hill, aka 30 East 29th Street, has passed the halfway mark. Designed by CetraRuddy Architecture, the 45-story NoMad skyscraper will stand out from the growing number of residential towers in the neighborhood with its dark-colored, Art Deco-inspired façade made of tall glass panels, terraces, and etched metal panels. Developed by Rockefeller Group, Rose Hill will eventually top out at 639 feet tall and have 123 condominiums marketed by CORE Real Estate.
