Sales recently kicked off for Tangram House West as the mixed-use development nears completion in Downtown Flushing, Queens. Developed in a joint partnership between F&T Group and SCG America and designed by Margulies Hoelzli Architecture, Tangram yields 1.2 million square feet with retail, residential, office, and hotel components. Bound by College Point Boulevard, Prince Street, and 37th and 39th Avenues, the 13-story building at 133-27 39th Avenue has 132 residential units. Inventory mix breaks down to 105 studio and one-to-two-bedroom residences, plus 27 penthouses ranging from one- to four-bedrooms layouts.
Construction has topped out on 410 West 126th Street, a 20-story mixed-use building in Harlem, Manhattan. Designed by Peter Poon Architects and developed by Columbia International, the 169-foot-tall structure will yield 128,542 square feet with 92 apartments spread across 68,496 square feet, as well as 59,460 square feet of commercial space and 586 square feet for a community facility. The property will also include 47 enclosed parking spaces. The project site is located along West 126th Street between Amsterdam Avenue to the west and Morningside Avenue to the east.
The new glass curtain wall has begun installation on 660 Fifth Avenue, a 39-story commercial building in Midtown, Manhattan. Formerly addressed as 666 Fifth Avenue, the office tower is in the process of having its mid-century façade replaced with a modern envelope in a project designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and developed by Brookfield Properties. The 1.5-million-square-foot property is located between West 52nd and 53rd Streets.
The final pieces of the glass curtain wall and gray paneling are being installed on 425 Park Avenue, a 897-foot-tall commercial skyscraper in Midtown East. Designed by Norman Foster of Foster + Partners for L&L Holding Company, Tokyu Land Corporation, and co-managing partner BentallGreenOak, the 47-story building will yield around 667,000 square feet largely dedicated to offices, as well as a ground-floor restaurant run by Chef Daniel Humm, proprietor of the Three Michelin-starred Eleven Madison Park. The property is bound by Park Avenue to the west, East 55th Street to the south, and East 56th Street to the north, and is expected to achieve LEED-Gold certification and debut as the city’s first WELL-certified building.
Exterior work is taking another step toward completion on 111 West 57th Street, a 1,428-foot residential supertall on Midtown, Manhattan’s Billionaires’ Row, as the construction elevator has been disassembled from the northern elevation. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS Development, Property Markets Group, and Spruce Capital Partners, 111 West 57th Street is the world’s most slender building with a height-to-width ratio of 24:1, and features 60 units designed by Studio Sofield and marketed by Douglas Elliman Development Marketing.
