SHoP Architects‘ 111 West 57th Street has begun the next phase of construction. Work on the steel crown is now underway, and the soaring metallic component has begun to rise atop the recently completed reinforced concrete superstructure. The 1,428-foot-tall, super-slender skyscraper sits almost perfectly in the middle of Billionaire’s Row, and is being developed by JDS Development, Property Markets Group, and Spruce Capital Partners. Douglas Elliman is handling sales and marketing for the 46 condominiums. The building will eventually become the second-tallest tower in New York City by roof height, and the skinniest in the world. It will encompass a width to height ratio of 1:24, indicating a very narrow width that measures just under 60 feet.
The site of 7 West 57th Street sits directly adjacent to the SOM-designed Solow Building, aka 9 West 57th Street. Construction on the 19-story reinforced concrete structure has now topped-out, and glass panels on the main southern elevation are nearing completion. The 237-foot-tall tower is being designed by Hill West Architects and developed by Sheldon Solow, the chairman of Solow Realty & Development Group. 7 West 57th Street is located between Fifth and Sixth Avenue along Billionaire’s Row. Upper units will clear the roof heights of the surrounding urbanity, and will obtain north-facing views of Central Park.
The Beth Rivka School for girls will soon begin construction on a new 12-story building, designed by ODA Architecture. In a recent reveal, the New York-based architecture firm unveiled renderings of the forthcoming development that will incorporate a series of cantilevered floors, a playful mixed-material façade, and an unusual pair of spherical structures on the top levels of the building.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story residential building at 2010 Walton Avenue in Tremont, The Bronx. Located between East 179th Street and East Burnside Avenue, the lot is one block from the Burnside Avenue subway station, serviced by the 4 train. E & G Walton Developers LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
After several years of legal battles between developers involved with the project, and NIMBYs who were not, construction on 430 East 58th Street, aka 3 Sutton Place, is finally now rising above street level. The first set of reinforced concrete floors have already been poured, and formwork is now above the adjacent buildings. A slight cantilever on the eastern elevation is beginning to form and protrude outwards. The future residential skyscraper was formerly being designed by Foster + Partners, but is now being overseen by Thomas Juul-Hansen, and is set to rise 800 feet over the Midtown East neighborhood of Sutton Place. Gamma Real Estate is the developer, and the lot is located between Sutton Place South and First Avenue.
