With The High Line’s residential development boom entering its twilight, construction is just about complete on Related’s new condominium building at 520 West 28th Street, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects. The building, in the Western blocks of Chelsea, offers a truly refreshing take on residential architecture, and its sleek, futuristic design makes for an exciting new addition to the streetscape.
Just over a year ago, renderings were unveiled for a public art piece in one of the most anticipated developments in New York City, Hudson Yards. The images revealed “Vessel,” an enormous, intricate structure that many believe is guaranteed to become a new city landmark, designed by Thomas Heatherwick.
A development site in Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood saw permits filed back in 2015 for a vertical and horizontal addition, at 523 Willoughby Avenue. Since then, the neighboring building has also met the wrecking ball, and the latest new building applications show a “major alteration” will result in a completely new structure, which YIMBY can reveal today.
On the eastern side of Lexington Avenue between 33rd and 34th Streets, in the heart of Midtown, a new residential rental tower has topped-out. YIMBY revealed the design back in 2014 before permits were pulled in early 2015. C3D Architecture is behind the project’s design, which currently looks markedly different from what’s rendered, though that may not be the case for much longer.
Permits have been filed for a new four-story school within walking distance of Yankee Stadium. The lot, at 316 East 165th Street, is currently used for parking. The project is being developed by Bronx-based CG Educational Holding Corporation, and the school will be twelve blocks away from the 167th street stop on the B and D subway lines.
