New renderings offer a first glimpse of the 400-foot waterfront esplanade to accompany Eliot Spitzer’s massive South Williamsburg rental complex, at 420 Kent Avenue.
425 Park Avenue held its official topping-out ceremony on December 3, 2018. Its architect Lord Norman Foster, head of Foster + Partners, along with several keynote speakers including David Levinson of L&L Holding Company LLC and Masaoki Kanematsu of Tokyu Land Corporation spoke at the reception, held on the 20th floor of the the building’s first and largest tiered setback. The 41-story, 897-foot tall building is the 17th-tallest building under construction in New York City, and has grown out of the old remains of the original structure that formerly stood on site. The un-demolished section is being repurposed as part of Midtown’s first new full-block office skyscraper in over 50 years. The tower is being developed by L&L Holding Company LLC while Adamson Associates is the architect of record.
Almost impossible to miss when looking at the Manhattan Bridge from the Brooklyn Bridge, Chinatown, the Lower East Side, or almost anywhere else in the city, One Manhattan Square rises 847 feet into the sky, and is the 18th-tallest skyscraper under construction in New York City. With its reflective chevron window pattern on the north and south elevations, the glass residential building holds 1,260,000 square feet of space with 25,516 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. It was designed by Adamson Associates, and is being developed and marketed by Extell.
Construction will soon begin on Riverwalk 8, the eighth building within Roosevelt Island’s Riverwalk rental complex. With groundbreaking imminent, YIMBY has the exclusive reveal for the first renderings of the project.
