The 54-story, 33-unit luxury residential tower under development at 520 Park Avenue (the tower is technically at 45 East 60th Street), on the southern end of the Upper East Side, is now roughly 30 stories tall. Limestone and windows are also now beginning to encapsulate all sides of the tower. The latest update comes as new photos of the project were posted to the YIMBY Forums. The building will eventually encompass 251,892 square feet and stand 780 feet above street level, per the latest permits.

A Whole Foods Market will take up 44,000-square feet across the ground and second floors of 1 Wall Street, in the Financial District, Commercial Observer reported. The 50-story, 654-foot-tall office building – part of which is an individual landmark – is currently being converted into 155,000 square feet of commercial-retail space and 524 residential units. YIMBY reported on the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s approval of the planned alterations back in January and April. A rendering of the new store reveals that the Whole Foods will be located in the annex portion of 1 Wall Street. The annex portion is also being expanded at the top. Macklowe Properties is the developer. Robert A.M. Stern Architects and SLCE Architects are behind the architecture. The retailer is expected to open its doors in late 2018.
When we last checked in on the Robert A.M. Stern Architects-designed condominium building under construction at 20 East End Avenue, between East 80th and 81st streets in the Yorkville section of the Upper East Side, it had just topped out. That was back in November. Since then, as we can see in photos from our friend Tectonic, the façade is nearly finished.
Last month, YIMBY brought you new renderings of the 54-story, 33-unit ultra-luxury residential tower under construction at 520 Park Avenue, located on East 60th Street in Lenox Hill. The building is now between 15 and 20 stories above street level, as seen in photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by Robert Walpole and ILNY, and can be seen for the first time from Central Park. Crews are also installing limestone to the structure’s western façade. The 781-foot-tall tower will encompass 251,892 square feet, and its condominium units should average an opulent 5,394 square feet apiece. The building’s amenities are all listed in our previous update. Zeckendorf Development is the developer and Robert A.M. Stern Architects is behind the design. SLCE Architects is serving as the architect of record. Completion is expected in 2017.
It’s been nearly a year since we checked in on Related’s rental development at 261 Hudson Street, and a lot has happened since then. Thanks to photos from our friend Tectonic, we can see that façade work on the 12-story project is nearly complete.
