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.
New renderings of 531-539 Sixth Avenue show changes to the facade of the residential development, designed by ODA. Compared to renderings released in July 2018, the structure’s facade will now incorporate black and grey metal elements.
420 Kent Avenue‘s triplet of glass-covered residential towers rising next to each other along the East River waterfront in Williamsburg are nearing completion, with facade installation nearly finished. Designed by ODA New York and developed by Spitzer Enterprises, recent photos by YIMBY followers show the site’s substantial progress. The development is located to the south of the Williamsburg Bridge, along Kent Avenue between Broadway and South 9th Street.
Permits have been filed for a 19-story mixed-use building at 2505 Broadway on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Located between West 93rd and West 94th Streets, the site is two blocks south of the 96th Street subway station serviced by the 1, 2, and 3 trains. The neighborhood is also serviced by the B and C at the 96th Street subway station on Central Park West. Tomer Yogev of Adam America Real Estate is listed as the owner behind the applications.
When YIMBY last visited the site of ODA‘s planned tree-topped skyscraper at 75 Nassau Street, the remaining buildings were still being demolished. Now, the lots for the 40-story tower are completely empty and cleaned up. Five buildings had to be razed to make way for the future 498-foot tall, 312,000 square foot structure, which promises to make a unique imprint on the Lower Manhattan skyline. Lexin Capital is the developer of the project, which appears to be stalled at the moment, with no progress since demolition currently visible.
