Set to rise at the northern corner of Fifth Avenue and West 43rd Street, 520 Fifth Avenue is likely to be the first skyscraper along Fifth Avenue to top the 900-foot mark. The project will rise in the heart of Midtown, one street away from the eastern end of Bryant Park. The glass-enclosed tower will have 76 floors and stand 920 feet to its pinnacle. Handel Architects is the architect, and Arthur Hooper of Ceruzzi Properties will be developing in conjunction with SMI USA.
Demolition permits have been filed for the existing structures at 1297 and 1299 3rd Avenue on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, between 74th and 75th Street.

Continental Ventures is listed as responsible for the demolition.
Premier Equities and Thor Equities are partnering to develop a 31-story, 100,000-square-foot residential tower at 1297-1299 Third Avenue, located between East 74th and 75th streets on the Upper East Side.
In the spring of 2015, Thor Equities entered into contract for the development site at 176 Bedford Avenue, located on the corner of North 7th Street in North Williamsburg. The developer has since closed on the property for $30 million. The developer plans to build a two-story, 14,500-square-foot commercial-retail building.
A copper-colored, terra cotta and glass facade has emerged at 529 Broadway, on the corner of Spring Street in Soho. Tectonic has the latest look at the construction.
