Developer RXR Realty and construction partner BCG recently celebrated their first temporary certificate of occupancy (TCO) at 475 Clermont, a 12-story development in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. The 363-unit, 400,000-square-foot structure contains a mix of residential homes and retail space. The TCO comes one month ahead of schedule and will allow occupancy to occur two months earlier than originally planned. Aufgang Architects is behind the design for the mixed-use rental building, which will contain 73 units for affordable housing and below-market rates.

A new rendering from 3D architectural visualization studio NoTriangle depicts an updated design for Three Hudson Boulevard. The featured image shows a tall glass skyscraper that rises at nearly as high as the 1,009-foot 35 Hudson Yards. Several setbacks on the eastern and southern elevation of the future commercial office tower can be spotted. It is still being designed by FXCollaborative and developed by the Moinian Group.
Progress on the steel superstructure is moving quickly on the first of the Diller Scofidio + Renfro-designed pair of buildings on Columbia University’s new Manhattanville campus. These will be formally named the Henry R. Kravis Building and the Ronald O. Perelman Center for Business Innovation, and construction can easily seen from the nearby 125th Street subway station. The project will yield over 450,000 square feet of classrooms, faculty offices, lounge areas, and double-height spaces that will overlook outdoor green spaces.
