Façade work is nearing completion on the Virgin Hotel at 1225 Broadway in NoMad. Designed by Stantec and developed by Lam Group, the 38-story, 476-foot-tall structure will yield 300,000 square feet with 460 hotel rooms. Sir Richard Branson of Virgin Group will be in charge of managing the property, which is the first Virgin Hotel in New York City.
Construction has reached street level at 7-9 East 30th Street, a 227-foot-tall residential building from SWA Architecture in NoMad. Developed by Castellan Real Estate Partners, the 23-story structure will span 41,992 square feet, yielding 54 residences and 2,142 square feet of ground-level retail.
Work is several floors above street level and rising at 9 DeKalb Avenue, a 1,066-foot-tall residential skyscraper in Downtown Brooklyn. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS, 73-story structure will become the first supertall in Brooklyn and the outer boroughs.
Work has yet to begin at 75 West Broadway, aka 61 Warren Street, a ten-story, 120-foot-tall residential building in Tribeca. The property has sat relatively quiet since YIMBY checked in last summer. Located along West Broadway between Warren Street and Murray Street, the forthcoming project is designed by BKSK Architects and developed by Cape Advisors and Forum Absolute Capital Partners and is set to yield 55,000 square feet.
Developers have launched leasing at The Dime, a 177-unit rental building in South Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Perched above the historic Dime Savings Bank at 275 South 5th Street, the property includes retail space, office suites, and an array of amenities. The building is alternately addressed as 209 Havemeyer Street.
