The Pendry Hotel at 4 Manhattan West is rising fast in Midtown West. The 21-story development will offer 164 guest rooms and a selection of condominiums on the tower’s upper floors. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill and developed by Brookfield Properties, the building features a distinctive wavy façade on the northern and southern elevations, which is now visible in the reinforced concrete structure. The glass curtain wall will be installed later this year.

Construction has officially wrapped for 91 Leonard Street in Tribeca. The 19-story, 210-foot-high residential building is designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill and Hill West Architects, and developed by Toll Brothers City Living. Designed to architecturally reflect the iconic characteristic of traditional cast iron warehouses and lofts, the residential building’s dark-colored bronze and glass curtain wall makes it a handsome addition to the neighborhood. Whitehall Interiors is responsible for the building’s interiors.
Construction has topped out at 315 East 46th Street in the Midtown East neighborhood of Turtle Bay. The site was once planned as 25-story condominium tower, but the project was scrapped due to financial issues during the early years of the Great Recession. Now, nearly ten years later, the property is heading toward completion as the nine-story home of the consulate of the United Arab Emirates. The reinforced concrete structure is being designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill and developed by Fisher Brothers. Plaza Construction is building the 145-foot tall tower and will soon begin to install the curtain wall.
Permits have been filed for a 12-story class A office building at 322 Seventh Avenue in Chelsea, Manhattan. Located on the northwest corner of 28th Street and Seventh avenue, the lot is steps away from the 28th Street subway station, serviced by the 1 train. It is also directly opposite the Fashion Institute of Technology. Michael Kirchmann and Alan Rudikoff of GDSNY is developing the boutique office tower.
Demolition has begun on the building that currently stands at 10-14 West 57th Street to clear the way for a 52-story mixed-use skyscraper, according to permits filed in early February. Scaffolding has been assembled and black construction netting now shrouds the entire low-rise structure.
