Metals in Construction is launching a competition to reclad 200 Park Avenue, a.k.a the MetLife Building, which is situated directly behind Grand Central Terminal.

Submissions are due February 1st, 2016, and $15,000 will be awarded to the team with the most innovative design.
After revealing the first rendering for the building, YIMBY reported on the summer ground-breaking of 472 Atlantic Avenue/465 Pacific Street, in Boerum Hill, and now The New York Times has a day-time image of the project, along with new details. Condominiums will come in one- to five-bedroom configurations, though the majority will be family-sized with three bedrooms, measuring roughly 1,400 square feet apiece. Stribling Marketing Associates is the broker, Avery Hall Investments and ARIA Development Group are developing, and Morris Adjmi Architects is designing, with completion currently anticipated for the winter of 2017.
