Last week, YIMBY featured a terrible new hotel coming to 525 Eighth Avenue, off the northwest corner of 34th Street and Eighth Avenue. A few blocks to the north and west, on the southwest corner of Ninth Avenue and 42nd Street, another architectural atrocity is getting ready to open its doors, at 577 Ninth Avenue, and Tectonic has the latest photos of progress.
Last week, the first full renderings appeared for the Alvaro Siza-designed 823 Eleventh Avenue, but that isn’t the biggest change underway on the block. Immediately to its northwest, TF Cornerstone’s new rental building at 606 West 57th Street is almost ready for its opening day, with construction nearly complete on the 1,028-unit project.
As construction begins to make headway on new residential towers at 15 East 30th Street and 277 Fifth Avenue, just to the south, an actual supertall is in the works at 262 Fifth Avenue. Applications for the site were filed back in September of 2016, before it got a slight height boost to 1,001 feet. Now, demolition is complete on the site’s old occupant.
118 Fulton Street has been making swift progress over the past few months, and now, the 752-foot-tall tower has officially topped-out. Foundation work was still ongoing just over one year ago, with the 66-story building’s rise since then clocking in at an impressive pace of over one floor per week. SLCE Architects is behind the design for the project, which is being developed by Carmel Partners.
Back in March of 2014, YIMBY first reported on new building applications for a site bound by Houston Street, Avenue C, and East 2nd Street, at 11 Avenue C. Now, we have the reveal for the project, which is being developed by BLDG.
