Downtown’s residential boom continues apace with the construction of 125 Greenwich Street, which has reached two-thirds of the way to its 912-foot-tall pinnacle on a corner overlooking the World Trade Center memorial. The tower will rise above most of its neighbors in the Financial District, but since it is right across from 1 World Trade Center, it will not make a sizable impact on the skyline. Architect Rafael Viñoly is also responsible for the Midtown supertall 432 Park Avenue.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story residential complex at 959 Sterling Place in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. The site includes an existing historic building, occupied by the Hebron Seventh-Day Adventist Bilingual School, originally built as the Methodist Episcopal Home for the Aged in 1889. The Romanesque/Gothic revivalist structure is within the Crown Heights North Historic District landmark and will require approval from the LPC. Matthew Cordivari of the Triton Construction Company is listed as behind the applications.
There are few places better than Central Park to truly appreciate the scale of New York City. The cliff-like transition from Midtown to Olmsted’s masterpiece is part of what attracts people to the city, and it’s only getting more dramatic. Today YIMBY has a fresh rendering by Jose Hernandez, based on a photograph by Andrew Campbell Nelson from the Met’s Rooftop Garden, which reveals exactly how the skyline is expected to change through 2022 and currently appears in an exhibit at The Skyscraper Museum, in Lower Manhattan.
New permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 239 Marcus Garvey Boulevard in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.

UK-based Bluestone Group is listed as responsible for the development.
