The future NoMad site of the Ritz Carlton Hotel at 1185 Broadway is making progress. The first several high-ceiling floors for the podium have been created. Construction workers reached the fourth floor and the start of the main hotel portion of the reinforced concrete structure should soon follow. This is going to be a $500 million Midtown skyscraper, which is located at the northern intersection of Broadway and West 28th Street. It is designed by Rafael Vinoly, while Marriott, Ritz Carlton Hotels, and Flag Luxury Properties are the three developers. The interiors are being designed by Yabu Pushelberg. The Ritz Carlton will top out at 40 stories tall and reach 580 feet above street level.
Above the Financial District, 125 Greenwich Street rises as a slender 88-story residential skyscraper. Designed by Rafael Vinoly and developed by Bizzi & Partners and Vector Group, the 912-foot tall glass and concrete structure has topped out. The 273 residential units are being marketed by Douglas Elliman, while the interiors are being designed by March & White. YIMBY recently got to go on a tour of the upcoming construction, capturing views from the very top.
Standing nine stories tall directly across from Chelsea Market, 61 Ninth Avenue sits in the heart of the Meatpacking District. Designed by Rafael Vinoly Architects, the new 170,000 square foot commercial structure rises 135 feet tall. Vornado Realty Trust and Aurora Capital are the developers of the project.
The Georgetown Company has announced a new $410 million financing package for their recently completed office building at 787 Eleventh Avenue. According to the company, the investment from Societe Generale (SocGen) replaces a $350 million construction loan from the Blackstone Group, Goldman Sachs, and ICBC.
With the elevator coming down from 277 Fifth Avenue‘s western frontage over the past several weeks, the final form of the building’s exterior, comprised of dark panels, vertical window strips, and open-air terraces, is almost fully visible. Designed by Rafael Vinoly, developed by Victor Group and Lendlease, and marketed by Corcoran, the 52-story residential tower stands 728 feet atop NoMad, and is one of the tallest skyscrapers in the area.
