Following years of dispute and litigation, the Jersey City Planning Board has officially granted Kushner Companies necessary approvals to begin construction on One Journal Square, a two-skyscraper complex in downtown Jersey City. Designed by Woods Bagot, the buildings will comprise 2 million square feet and stand 710 feet tall.
Demolition work is continuing at 1568 Broadway in Times Square, where the 46-story, 470-foot-tall building now stands less than 20 stories high. Designed by PBDW Architects, Mancini Duffy, and Perkins Eastman and developed by L&L Holding Company, Maefield Development, and Fortress Investment Group, the project involves the partial demolition of the former DoubleTree Suites by Hilton and construction of a new 46-story, 550,000-square-foot hotel tower dubbed TSX Broadway, on its foundations. This also includes the preservation of the 108-year-old Palace Theater, which will be raised 30 feet to make room for ground-floor retail space. The site is located at the corner of Seventh Avenue and West 47th Street, directly across from the TKTS stairs.
Construction is nearing completion on 305 West 48th Street, a 303-foot-tall hotel in Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan. Designed by Gene Kaufman and developed by Bright Management with Rockwell Group as the interior designer, the 27-story building will yield 211 hotel rooms. The site is located at the corner of West 48th Street and Eighth Avenue, a short walk from Times Square and the Theater District.
Permits have been filed for a six-story residential building at 3377 Sedgwick Avenue in Jerome Park, The Bronx. Located between Giles Place and Fort Independence Street, the interior lot is closest to the 238th Street subway station, serviced by the 1 train. Anton Tinaj under the Park View Bay, LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Updated renderings from J. Frankl Associates and Studio C Architecture reveal new plans for a nine-story residential building in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. From developer Naresh Mahangu of NY Building Associates Inc., the property will take shape at 1010 Pacific Street on a large interior lot between Grand and Classon Avenues.
