Financial support has been acquired for the construction of a new Midtown development, putting verticality one step closer to reality. 611 West 56th Street will rise 35 floors above the far end of Midtown’s Billionaire’s Row. Just a block away from West 57th Street, the project is another step in the redevelopment of the long-forlorn area. It will join new buildings like Via at 625 West 57th Street, the rising towers of Waterline Square, and The Max, a nearly complete mega-development on the same block. Sumaida + Khurana and LENY are responsible for the development.
Progress on the 64-story 19 Dutch is moving quickly toward completion, with the development gearing up for the start of leasing in the next few months.

Our last coverage of the skyscraper included birds-eye images from 3WTC’s rooftop. Today, we have a sneak peek look at the building’s newest rendering.
Construction is moving along quickly for two new towers on City Hall Park. The park is one of just three major public outdoor areas in the Financial District, making any development around it particularly important.

Last week, YIMBY was taken on a tour of 175 Greenwich Street, aka 3 World Trade Center, visiting the rooftop, the terrace, and the lobby.

Interior work is also approaching the finish line.
