Permits have been filed for a 46-story mixed-use high rise along Queens’ East River waterfront, overlooking Manhattan. The structure will rise at 52-41 Center Boulevard, in the Hunters Point neighborhood. The project is part of TF Cornerstone’s Hunters Point South Towers, and will be the shorter of two new skyscrapers.
The West Side’s building boom has been nothing short of transformative over the past few years, resulting in two new residential buildings of over 1,000 units apiece. While The Moinian Group’s Sky opened in 2016, TF Cornerstone’s 606 West 57th Street is also closing in on the finish line. With leasing expected to begin in a few months, YIMBY has word that the tower has officially been named The Max, in honor of Max Elghanayan.
TF Cornerstone’s new Hunters Point South Towers are finally getting ready to rise. The developer acquired the site back in 2013, and there have been major alterations to initial plans, including a substantial height increase for the two towers, designed by ODA Architecture.
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.
Façade installation is now up to the 17th floor on the 25-story, 714-unit mixed-use building, which topped out in October, at 300 Livingston Street, located on the corner of Bond Street in Downtown Brooklyn. The structure can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the project will encompass 734,312 square feet and rise 250 feet to its main roof, or 271 feet to the top of the bulkhead.
