Designed by Studio Gang, the stunning glass facade at 40 Tenth Avenue is now complete. Described as a “solar carve,” the 12-story office building features a chiseled, gem-like curtain wall that was engineered to eliminate shadows.
Located to the south of the New York Stock Exchange on a narrow rectangular strip of land along Broad Street, the Financial District’s first residential supertall will soon rise at 45 Broad Street. The tower will eventually soar 1,115 feet above the crowded streets of Lower Manhattan, and should make a very dramatic impact on the skyline in the coming years. Clad with bronze-colored aluminum panels and an intricate mix of sleek vertical and curved lines, it is the 5th-tallest skyscraper currently under construction in New York City. CetraRuddy is the architect, while the developers are Madison Equities and Pizzarotti LLC.
Demolition permits have been filed for the one-story building at 151 Broome Street, on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Located between Clinton Street and Pitt Street, the mid-block structure has been home to Little Star of Broome Street, an early childhood center servicing the neighborhood. Kevin Cronin of the non-profit organization Grand Street Guild is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Earlier this month, the City Planning Commission approved proposals for four new skyscrapers coming to the Two Bridges section of the Lower East Side. The tallest of the bunch will be 247 Cherry Street, adjacent to the site of Extell’s One Manhattan Square. The upcoming 1,008-foot-tall residential skyscraper will be designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS Development, and is the 11th tallest tower underway in the Five Boroughs. This supertall is the only project on YIMBY’s end-of-year list where site work has not yet begun, although with City Planning approval now secured, that is hopefully a matter of imminency.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 111 Mulberry Street, in Little Italy, Manhattan. The site is two blocks east from the Canal Street subway station at Centre Street, serviced by the J and Z trains. Wing Cheung of One Eleven Property LLC is listed as behind the applications.
