Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s (MSKCC) 22-story, 779,832-square-foot portion of the David H. Koch Center for Cancer Care, under construction at 530 East 74th Street on the Upper East Side, is now four stories above street level. Work was solely underway on the foundation when YIMBY reported on the project in January. The latest construction progress can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by Tectonic. Work appears to still be below grade on City University of New York’s (CUNY)/Hunter College School of Nursing’s 16-story, 750,000-square-foot portion at 524 East 74th Street. MSKCC’s portion will focus on the treatment of various forms of cancer, while CUNY’s portion will focus on research and physical therapy. Perkins Eastman and Ennead Architects are designing the project, and a recent rendering is below. Completion is expected by 2018, with opening scheduled for 2019.

Last week, the Jersey City Planning Board approved plans for a five-story, 308-unit mixed-use project at 100 Monitor Street, located on the corner of Johnson Avenue in the city’s Communipaw section. The building will include 2,980 square feet of ground-floor retail space and 8,000 square feet of office space, the latter of which will be leased to the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency, Jersey Digs reported. The residential units will be rentals and amenities will include an 85-car parking garage, a fitness center, a pool, and a landscaped garden. Ironstate Development and Landmark Developers are developing the building. The site is an assemblage of six vacant lots and groundbreaking is scheduled for early 2017.
