Façade work is continuing to progress on The Fifth Avenue Hotel at 250 Fifth Avenue in NoMad. Designed by Perkins Eastman, PBDW Architects, and Martin Brudnizki Design Studio and developed by Flaneur Hospitality, the project involves the construction of a 230-foot-tall, 24-story reinforced concrete tower and the renovation and hotel conversion of a 116-year-old McKim, Mead & White-designed building. CNY Group is the general contractor for the project, which is being built at the corner of Fifth Avenue and West 28th Street.
Construction is progressing on the new superstructure of TSX Broadway, a 470-foot-tall hotel at 1568 Broadway in Times Square. Designed by PBDW Architects, Mancini Duffy, and Perkins Eastman and developed by L&L Holding Company, Maefield Development, and Fortress Investment Group, the Midtown, Manhattan project required the partial demolition of the DoubleTree Suites by Hilton while preserving a portion of the original steel-framed podium that’s being repurposed, refurbished, and incorporated into the 21st century overhaul. The end result will be a new 550,000-square-foot tower that will include Kirchoff & Rose’s 108-year-old Palace Theater, which is being renovated and raised 30 feet to make way for ground-floor retail space. The site is located at the corner of Seventh Avenue and West 47th Street, to the east of the red TKTS stairs, and is slated to cost $2.5 billion.
Curtain wall installation is nearing completion on The Willoughby, a 34-story mixed-use building at 196 Willoughby Street on Long Island University‘s Downtown Brooklyn campus.

The Willoughby is bound by Willoughby Street to the north, Ashland Place to the east, DeKalb Avenue to the south, and Flatbush Avenue Extension to the west. Hunter Roberts Construction Group is the general contractor for the LIU expansion project.
