Façade work is nearing completion at 125 Greenwich Street. Installation of the thin glass panels on the podium of the slender 88-story residential skyscraper is underway. This is the final portion of the curtain wall awaiting completion, apart from the sections behind the construction hoist, which should be disassembled soon. The 912-foot-tall glass and concrete skyscraper is designed by Rafael Vinoly and developed by Bizzi & Partners and Vector Group. The 273 residential units are being marketed by Douglas Elliman, while the interiors are being designed by March & White.
Permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use building at 410 Warwick Street in East New York, Brooklyn. Located between Glenmore Avenue and Pitkin Avenue, the property is also addressed as 2337 Pitkin Avenue. The development is five blocks to the east of the Van Siclen Avenue subway station, serviced by the A and C trains. Concern for the Independent Living is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Construction is moving along smoothly on the Pendry Hotel, aka 4 Manhattan West. The reinforced concrete superstructure of the 21-story Midtown West development has risen past the halfway mark, and installation of its distinctive wavy façade has begun on the northern and western elevations. The mixed-use project, which is designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill and developed by Brookfield Properties, is slated to offer 164 guest rooms and a selection of condominiums on its upper floors.
Façade work is underway at 12 East 48th Street on what will become a 161-room Hilton Grand Vacation Hotel. Located in Midtown East between Madison Avenue and Fifth Avenue, the reinforced concrete superstructure has already topped out and the curtain wall on the northern elevation is beginning to rise above the ground floor. Designed by Handel Architects, the bright metallic frames that surround the building’s windows will form a subtly oscillating geometric pattern. Hidrock Realty is the developer of the project.
Work is set to begin at 555 West 38th Street, the site of a 52-story residential skyscraper designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects. Located to the north of the first phase of Hudson Yards along Eleventh Avenue, the property sits directly across from the new expansion of the Jacob K. Javits Center and a couple streets south of the Lincoln Tunnel entrance. Machinery is on site in preparation for the excavation of the asphalt-covered lot to make way for the 570-foot-tall tower. Rockrose is the developer of the project, which will contain 598 rental units.
