Excavation has begun at the site of 450 Eleventh Avenue to clear the way for a new 531-room hotel from Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide. The 487-foot-tall building will be designed by DSM Design Group and developed by Marx Development Groups. The property is located across from the Jacob K. Javits Center between West 36th Street and West 37th Street.
Design firm Z Architecture has unveiled new renderings of its mixed-use residential development underway at 420 Gates Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. From developer Igal Reihanian of Tower Real Estate Investments, the property will eventually yield 44 apartment units, 7,000 square feet of lower-level community facilities, and a 22-vehicle parking garage.
Permits have been filed for a five-story mixed-use building at 450 Warren Street in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. Located between Bond Street and Nevins Street, the lot is two blocks east of the Bergen Street subway station, serviced by the F and G trains. Tankhouse, a New York-based design-development firm, is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The bubbling and bulging sculptural windows of 515 West 18th Street in Chelsea are making their way toward the tops of the new pair of residential buildings. The reinforced concrete structures, which straddle the High Line, are designed by Thomas Heatherwick of Heatherwick Studio and developed by Related Companies. The entire site takes up the eastern half of the parcel of land along Tenth Avenue between West 18th Street and West 19th Street. The taller, 22-story sibling on the western end of the property recently topped out across from the shorter, ten-story component. Both will eventually be enclosed with the same architectural curtain wall of gray-colored bricks and bulbous bay windows. SLCE Architects is the executive architect of the project.
The reinforced concrete structure of the 203-room Aloft Hotel at 132 West 28th Street has risen to the tenth floor above Chelsea. YIMBY last reported on the project in late March, when foundations were just about to reach street level. Peter Poon Architects is the designer and while Frank Ng is the developer of the 326-foot-tall, 32-story tower. Now three months of construction work has made the reinforced concrete structure rise to the tenth floor.
