Installation of the glass and brick curtain wall of 460 Main Street, aka Riverwalk 8, is nearing completion on Roosevelt Island. The 21-story, 341-unit building is designed by Handel Architects and is being developed as a joint venture between Related Companies and Hudson Companies. This will be the eighth component in the nine-building Riverwalk rental complex.
Construction on Rose Hill, aka 30 East 29th Street, has passed the halfway mark. Designed by CetraRuddy Architecture, the 45-story NoMad skyscraper will stand out from the growing number of residential towers in the neighborhood with its dark-colored, Art Deco-inspired façade made of tall glass panels, terraces, and etched metal panels. Developed by Rockefeller Group, Rose Hill will eventually top out at 639 feet tall and have 123 condominiums marketed by CORE Real Estate.
Construction at 202 Broome Street is now topped out, marking a significant milestone for the Essex Crossing mega-development. Designed by CetraRuddy, the 14-story building will eventually contain 175,000 square feet of Class-A office space, 83 condominiums, and 34,500 square feet of retail.
Architectural photographer Tectonic recently checked in on the progress at 80 Flatbush Avenue in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. Demolition is underway to clear the site for the construction of a multi-structure development that will include one of the borough’s tallest skyscrapers. A large assembly of scaffolding and black netting shrouds what remains of the original brick structure that is being dismantled floor by floor. Last year the City Council approved the project, which had a reduction in size and scale and a redesign of the largest tower. Alloy Development is the developer of the complex, which is located on a triangular plot bound by Flatbush Avenue, State Street, Third Avenue, and a small sliver of Schermerhorn Street.
The installation of new glass curtain walls on the lower levels of 388 Greenwich Street and its annex at 390 Greenwich Street is almost complete. The taller, 39-story office building rises above the Tribeca waterfront across from Pier 25 and Pier 26. Skidmore, Owings & Merrill designed the 14-story-high glass envelope, while Gensler is leading the interior renovations in both structures.
