Among New York City supertalls expected to rise as part of the current development boom, 80 South Street has been the only major project of prominence to retain near-complete secrecy when it comes to architectural visualizations. Today, YIMBY has the exclusive reveal for the plan tentatively in the works for the site, for developer China Oceanwide Holdings, which would result in the tallest building by roof height in all of Lower Manhattan, likely approaching 1,500 feet above street level.
Permits have been filed for a 14-story mixed-use building at 1911 Atlantic Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Located between Prescott Place and Bancroft Place, the corner lot is two blocks south of the Ralph Avenue subway station, serviced by the A and C trains. Thomas Campbell of Thorobird Companies is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Construction at 200 Amsterdam Avenue is quickly rising above the surrounding rooftops. When topped out, the 668-foot-tall residential development will hold the title of tallest skyscraper on the Upper West Side until Extell‘s 775-foot tall tower at 50 West 66th Street tops out. The building is designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects, which was responsible for The Shops & Restaurants at Hudson Yards. SJP Properties is the developer while CetraRuddy is the lead interior designer. The 283,000-square-foot project, which sits at the southwestern corner of Amsterdam Avenue and West 70th Street, will yield 112 residential units.
Developer Tishman Speyer has released renderings for 99 Hudson Boulevard, a 44-story office building at Hudson Yards. The site sits along 11th Avenue between West 36th Street and West 37th Street. Tishman had to first buy two adjacent lots, 34-444 11th Avenue and 550 West 37th Street. The proposed 1.3-million-square-foot structure is the company’s second office project in the area after 66 Hudson Boulevard, aka The Spiral, which sits diagonally across from Bella Abzug Park.
Construction on the Hilton Grand Vacation Hotel has topped out at 12 East 48th Street. The 31-story project is being designed by Handel Architects and developed by Hidrock Realty. There will be a total of 161 rooms, an outdoor terrace, and ground-floor retail space. The site was part of a $47 million purchase several years ago. A reinforced concrete structure makes up the frame of the building, which will be clad with white metallic panels.
