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.
The Walt Disney Company’s chairman and CEO Robert A. Iger has announced the company’s future New York headquarters will encompass a full city block bounded by Hudson Street, Varick Street, Vandam and Spring Street, in Hudson Square. Rev. Dr. Willaim Lupher of Trinity Church sold the air rights, with the help of CBRE, allowing Disney to develop and take ownership of 4 Hudson Square for 99 years, at a cost of $650 million.
