Construction has topped out on 555 West 38th Street, a 570-foot-tall residential skyscraper in Hudson Yards. Developed by Rockrose and designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects with SLCE as the architect of record, the 52-story structure will add 598 rental units to this growing section of Midtown. The site is located along Eleventh Avenue between West 38th Street and West 39th Street, directly across from the Jacob K. Javits Center.
Exterior work is taking another step toward completion on 111 West 57th Street, a 1,428-foot residential supertall on Midtown, Manhattan’s Billionaires’ Row, as the construction elevator has been disassembled from the northern elevation. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS Development, Property Markets Group, and Spruce Capital Partners, 111 West 57th Street is the world’s most slender building with a height-to-width ratio of 24:1, and features 60 units designed by Studio Sofield and marketed by Douglas Elliman Development Marketing.
Construction is wrapping up on 16 East 30th Street, a 22-story hotel in NoMad. Designed by Brooklyn-based firm Baobab Architects and NAA, the 37,000-square-foot structure stands 225 feet tall and will yield 102 guest rooms. The building rises from a small parcel between Madison and Fifth Avenues, next to a multi-story parking garage and adjacent to the base of Sky House, a slender residential skyscraper completed in 2008.
Exterior work is progressing on The Spiral, a 66-story, 1,041-foot-tall commercial supertall at 66 Hudson Boulevard in Hudson Yards. Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group and developed by Tishman Speyer, the structure occupies a full block between Tenth and Eleventh Avenues and 34th and 35th Streets and is poised to yield a whopping 2.85 million square feet of office space. Turner Construction Company is serving as the construction manager, Banker Steel is in charge of manufacturing the steel, and Permasteelisa is the contractor for the glass enclosure for the project, which is expected to cost $3.7 billion.

The 187-key hotel rises 21 stories tall on a plot between West 30th and West 31st Streets, and is designed by Gene Kaufman Architect and developed by McSam Hotel Group, which purchased the site for approximately $42.4 million in March 2017.
