This month Long Island University and RXR Realty celebrated the commencement of a multimillion-dollar capital improvement project at the institution’s Downtown Brooklyn campus. Located near the buzzing intersection of Flatbush and Dekalb Avenues, the improvement plan arrives as part of an initiative to modernize existing academic and recreational facilities.
The 23-story reinforced concrete structure at 250 Fifth Avenue has topped out in NoMad. The 230-foot-tall hotel tower is located along West 28th Street directly adjacent to an 111-year-old McKim, Mead & White-designed five-story building with a landmarked façade. PBDW Architects and Perkins Eastman are the designers of the addition, which is being developed by Flaneur Hospitality.
Permits have been filed for an 11-story mixed-use building at 589 Christopher Avenue in Brownsville, Brooklyn. Located on the corner of New Lots Avenue and Christoper Avenue, the lot is four blocks from the New Lots Avenue subway station, serviced by the L train. Procida Companies is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Façade work on the Turkevi Center at 821 First Avenue in the Midtown East neighborhood of Turtle Bay is taking shape. Located at the intersection of East 46th Street and First Avenue, the topped-out reinforced concrete skyscraper rises 563 feet and will eventually serve as the consulate of the Republic of Turkey. Perkins Eastman is the designer of the 35-story mixed-use development.
Façade work is nearing completion at 99 Hudson Street, the tallest skyscraper in New Jersey. Designed by Perkins Eastman and developed by China Overseas America, the topped-out 900-foot-tall residential tower soars prominently above the Jersey City skyline. Plaza Construction is in charge of building the 79-story project and Vidaris is overseeing the exterior envelope, which is getting close to wrapping up. Assembly of the glass crown and installation of the Jura limestone curtain wall on the lower levels are the only components remaining.
