A new rendering has been revealed for 555 West 22nd Street, owned by Related Companies, confirming YIMBY’s last report on its future as a residential building. The West Chelsea lot is currently occupied by low-rise commercial and residential structures as well as a U-Haul lot, however demolition permits were filed in February of last year. Related acquired these properties and adjacent air rights for a total of $234 million.
Two new renderings have been revealed for 511-515 West 18th Street, in West Chelsea, which is being developed by Related Companies. The images show two towers with pod-like bowed glass facades, and brick exteriors, running along Tenth Avenue, and positioned on either side of the High Line between 18th and 19th streets. Thomas Heatherwick will be the design architect.
The Greenpoint waterfront is looking to get yet another major development. Permits have been filed for a 33-story building at 65 Private Drive, in Brooklyn, New York. The nearest subway station, seven blocks away, is the Greenpoint Avenue station, serviced by the G train. M&H Realty Partners will be responsible for development.
It’s no longer just a rendering; the 54-story Eagle Electric Factory’s redevelopment at 43-22 Queens Street almost has its full façade, as construction nears the finish line. YIMBY last reported on the project one year ago, when construction had reached the 18th floor. Now, the tower isn’t far off from releasing its 790 new rental apartments, which average 763 square feet apiece. Rockrose Development is responsible for development.
The last time YIMBY checked in on Ceruzzi Properties’ 138 East 50th Street in late August, the residential tower had just climbed past its 40th floor. Now, construction appears to have reached the parapet, 800 feet and 63 floors above the Midtown streets below, as seen in the latest update from Tectonic.
