Coming in at number 23 on our countdown of the tallest construction projects underway in New York City is 520 West 41st Street. YIMBY previously reported an exclusive rendering reveal for a possible two-tower mixed-use development at the Midtown West site, with the taller structure potentially rising 758 feet tall. Owner and developer Silverstein Properties called on CetraRuddy Architecture to create a pair of offset glass skyscrapers on the property near the edge of the Manhattan waterfront, and there have been a number of design changes over the past several years. Leeding Builders Group will be the general contractor.
The latest phase of Silverstein Properties’ extensive restoration of the Equitable Building at 120 Broadway includes a series of street art inspired murals within the landmarked tower. Located on the third floor, the installations bring new life to the century-old office building.
As we look back today in remembrance of September 11, 2001, it’s affirming to appreciate the progress that has been made on the new World Trade Center Complex, especially over the last handful of years. The development has restored a vertical prowess to the Financial District and the Lower Manhattan skyline, given rise to a stunning new transit center topped by by Santiago Calatrava‘s Oculus, and will soon become a cultural destination as well. Construction has resumed for the Ronald O. Perelman Performing Arts Center, tenants are steadily filling the 2.5 million square feet of office space at Three World Trade Center, and tourists and locals are experiencing Memorial Glade, the newest section of the 9/11 Memorial. YIMBY also checks in on the current state of Two World Trade Center and Five World Trade Center.
YIMBY has an exclusive new rendering, which is possibly the final design, for 520 West 41st Street, located in Midtown between Eleventh Avenue and Galvin Avenue. Silverstein Properties, the owner, has hired CetraRuddy Architecture to design the estimated one million square foot mixed-use project consisting of two glass towers atop a substantial retail podium. Leeding Builders Group will be the general contractor.
YIMBY recently sat down with Larry Silverstein to discuss his firm’s upcoming projects, as well as the status of the World Trade Center’s last remaining office supertall-to-be, at 200 Greenwich Street. With 3,000 new rental units in the works and Norman Foster’s design still on the table for Two World Trade Center, the scope of work Mr. Silverstein is undertaking is also now expanding into Journal Square and Queens.
