Gene Kaufman’s creations are normally seen within the realm of hospitality development, but sometimes, the architect also designs residential buildings. Today, YIMBY has a fresh rendering for the firm’s project under construction at 1050 Sixth Avenue, and the latest photos from Tectonic show that the building is about to top out.
Back in November of 2015, YIMBY reported on new building applications for 32-65 107th Street, on the corner of Northern Boulevard, in Queens’ East Elmhurst neighborhood. Today, we have the first renderings for the project, which is being designed by Flushing-based Lu Ning Architecture, PLLC.
Permits have been filed for a new residential building next to the Flushing Bay waterfront. An anonymous company is developing the four-story project, at 32-17 112th Street. The site is a one-mile walk to the Mets stadium, which is next to the expansive Flushing Meadows Corona Park. The closest subway station is in that same area, Mets Willets Point station, serviced by the 7 train.
With The High Line’s residential development boom entering its twilight, construction is just about complete on Related’s new condominium building at 520 West 28th Street, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects. The building, in the Western blocks of Chelsea, offers a truly refreshing take on residential architecture, and its sleek, futuristic design makes for an exciting new addition to the streetscape.
Just over a year ago, renderings were unveiled for a public art piece in one of the most anticipated developments in New York City, Hudson Yards. The images revealed “Vessel,” an enormous, intricate structure that many believe is guaranteed to become a new city landmark, designed by Thomas Heatherwick.
