YIMBY recently spotted a series of conceptual renderings created by architectural firm Workshop/APD that depict a pair of twin towers somewhere in Harlem. Though lacking a specific address, the structures rise from a six-story podium that sits directly to the east of what appears to be the elevated Harlem-125th Street station on the Metro-North Railroad, putting the site at the intersection of Park Avenue and East 125th Street.
Façade installation is progressing on 140 West 24th Street, a 416-foot-tall hotel tower in Chelsea. Designed by Gene Kaufman Architect and developed by Sam Chang, the 45-story building will yield a total of 142,949 square feet and 508 rooms. Omnibuild is in charge of the construction process, which is occurring between Sixth and Seventh Avenues.
New renderings reveal a total overhaul of Port Authority Bus Terminal that would modernize and brighten the notoriously blighted Midtown transit hub. The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey recently announced a $10 billion renovation planned to begin in 2024 and complete around 2031, and is expected to be built without the need to expand beyond the current boundaries of the terminal, which is located on two parcels of land between Eighth and Ninth Avenues and West 40th and 42nd Streets. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo praised the much-needed transformation of the site in the hopes of becoming a “world-class transportation hub worthy of New York.” No announcement has been made on the architect for the project.
Construction is nearing completion on the Taystee Lab Building, an 11-story mixed-use project at 450 West 126th Street in the Manhattanville section of West Harlem. Designed by LEVENBETTS and SLCE Architects and developed by Janus Property Group, the 350,000-square-foot building will yield Class A office space and state-of-the-art lab facilities, as well as space for organizations devoted to life sciences, technology, academic and non-profit programs, retail, and the arts. The property gets its name from the Taystee Cake Bakery Factory, which formerly stood on the site. BR+A Consulting Engineers is helping to construct the structure and LendLease is serving as construction manager.
