A proposed “boutique” office tower at 106 West 56th Street has begun excavation, where private equity firm Savanna Fund, along with Hong Kong based developer Atom Assets, plan to construct a 26-story tower. The site is located between 6th and 7th Avenues, just south of Billionaire’s Row.
Excavation has officially wrapped and a rendering has been revealed for Long Island City’s “Triangle” residential building, located at 43-12 Hunter Street. When complete, the project will stand 18 stories over Long Island City and will introduce 123 rental units to the expanding community. The Court Square Blog first reported on the progress.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 66 Linden Street in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The site is two blocks away from Gates Avenue, serviced by the J and Z trains. Gaborone Properties Corp will be responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed for a five-story private school at 3801 Fort Hamilton Parkway in Borough Park, Brooklyn. The site is by the southern corner of the Greenwood Cemetery grounds. Five blocks away is the 9th Avenue subway station, serviced by D trains. 12 blocks away is the Church Avenue subway station, serviced by F and G trains. Yehuda Deutsch is listed as behind the applications.
The Foster + Parters design for 425 Park Avenue’s revamp is making major progress. The Midtown office building will be aesthetically divided into three sections, with proportions defined by the remains of the formerly extant structure, which comprise its lowest floors. Thanks to Tectonic, we can confirm that the new tower is now making the transition from its second section into the final, vertical rise. Construction has 22 floors left until topping-out, or just over half of the 41 total floors that will result.
