Exterior work is moving along at 12 East 48th Street, a 367-foot-tall Hilton Grand Vacation Hotel in Midtown East. The 125,000-square-foot tower is designed by Handel Architects and developed by Hidrock Realty and will contain 161 guest rooms. Desimone Consulting Engineers is the structural engineer, The Rinaldi Group is the general contractor, and IBA Consulting & Engineering, PLLC is the envelope consultant for the edifice.
Leasing has launched at The Arches, a dual-tower residential project at 224-228 East 135th Street in Mott Haven, The Bronx. The development comprises a pair of 25-story buildings and is located just a couple blocks from the Harlem River waterfront.
Permits have been filed for a three-story mixed-use building at 1265 Myrtle Avenue in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Located between Evergreen Avenue and Hart Street, the interior lot is steps from the Central Avenue subway station, serviced by the M train and a short walk west to the Myrtle Avenue-Broadway station, serviced by the J, M, and Z trains. Jaime J. Jimenez is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Construction is set to resume at 50 West 66th Street, the soon-to-be tallest skyscraper on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Progress had been stalled on the 775-foot-tall residential tower until recently, when a joint venture was formed between Extell Development Company and global investment entity Tennor Holding B.V. to complete the project. Snøhetta is the designer of the 69-story structure, which will eventually eclipse the parapet of the neighborhood’s current title-holding skyscraper, 200 Amsterdam Avenue.
Demolition is continuing at 1841 and 1845 Broadway on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, where a 24-story mixed-use building is planned to rise. Scaffolding and black netting completely shroud 1841 Broadway, and it appears that the neighboring structure at 1845 Broadway has been partially razed. Both properties are owned by Global Holdings Management Group and Ancora Engineering is listed as the applicant of record on demolition permits, which were filed late last year.
