Permits have been filed for a 22-story commercial office building at 1241 Broadway in Midtown, Manhattan. The architect of the project will be Skidmore Owings & Merrill, who arguably have had the largest impact on New York City’s built environment compared to any other firm. First formed in 1939, they specialize in high-end office space, like the soon-to-be tower in today’s post.
Permits have been approved for the enlargement of 60 Charlton Street, which will yield a 12-story retail and office building in the Hudson Square neighborhood of Manhattan. The building was formerly known as 163 Varick Street. Kenneth Aschendorf of APF Properties is responsible for the development, after purchasing the lot for $65 million in July 2017.
Permits were filed yesterday for a seven-story residential building at 215 North 10th Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The site is just two blocks from McCarren Park, and four blocks from the Bedford Avenue subway station, serviced by the L trains. Morris Adjmi Architects is responsible for the design.
UPDATE: According to architect James Davidson from SLCE, “This image does not remotely comply with present or future massing constraints available for this site and was meant merely for internal circulation, not for public view. The 1QPS full block site is built full under today’s zoning regulations and cannot support such a structure.”
Renderings are out for a new look coming to 155 East 44th Street. The office building’s entrance and lobby will be redesigned to resemble a welcoming environment, along with the lounge, terrace, and modernized pre-war offices. The 35-story office building, designed by Ely Jacque Kahn, will be renamed 10 Grand Central, in recognition of being located within Midtown’s Grand Central Submarket area.
