YIMBY spotted a series of new exterior renderings for 45 Broad Street, a long-stalled site located in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan. Originally designed by CetraRuddy and developed by Madison Equities and Gemdale Properties, the formerly planned 1,115-foot supertall residential skyscraper appears to have a new and shorter undisclosed architectural height with a completely new design by Handel Architects. Lendlease will be the general contractor and take over from Pizzarotti LLC for the ground-up development, which will have 221,000 square feet of rentable space, 302 units most likely being condominiums, and 52 floors built atop a narrow interior lot between Exchange Place and Beaver Street.
Construction is nearing completion on 155-165 West 29th Street, a 17-story self-storage facility in Chelsea, Manhattan. Designed by Mancini Duffy and developed by Highland Development Ventures and The Davis Companies, the 223-foot-tall reinforced concrete structure will yield 180,000 square feet and 6,300 storage units. The developers acquired the interior rectangular in early 2021 for $62.5 million, and construction costs are estimated around $84 million. Div West 29th Street LLC is the owner, Cauldwell Wingate is the contractor, and McNamara Salvia is the structural engineer for the property, which is located between Sixth and Seventh Avenues.
The City of Bayonne in New Jersey has approved proposals to construct the first phase of NY Vue, a 26-story residential tower set to become the city’s tallest structure. The tower is planned to take shape on a 155,000-square-foot parcel at the intersection of Chosin Few Way and 40th Street near the Hudson River waterfront.
Permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use building at 140-66 34th Avenue in Flushing, Queens. Located between Union Street and Parsons Boulevard, the interior lot is near the Main Street subway station, serviced by the 7 train. Xing Zheng of Din Fung Flushing Estate 1406 LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Work is closing in on completion on the East Midtown Greenway, a 1.8-acre public promenade along the East River waterfront in Turtle Bay. Designed by Stantec, the 2,000-foot-long plaza runs from East 53rd to 61st Streets and is the second phase of the three-segment East Midtown Waterfront Esplanade, which will eventually stretch down to East 38th Street with recreation space for pedestrians and bicyclists. The $100 million project is located to the east of the FDR Drive and will also include a new park entrance at East 60th Street, a pedestrian bridge, and the revamping of Andrew Haswell Green Park and the Alice Aycock Pavilion.
