Yesterday, YIMBY revealed the exteriors for 1 Park Lane, which has an actual address of 36 Central Park South, the site of the current Helmsley Park Lane. While we speculated that Vinoly was behind the renderings, we have now learned that Handel Architects is in fact behind the design, which is unsurprising considering the supertall does resemble a vertically extruded take on the Trump Soho (another Handel project). The 1,210-foot tall building will have 88 condominiums, and completion is expected by 2020.
Back in September, YIMBY reported on the first permits for 239 Tenth Avenue, a new building which is being developed by Victor Homes and Michael Shvo. Renderings were glimpsed previously, but we now have the full reveal for the 12-story building, which will have only eight condominiums.
A landmarked five-story, turn-of-the-century office building at 250 Fifth Avenue, on the corner of 28th Street in NoMad, may become a hotel and grow a 23-story tower behind it. Alteration applications were filed yesterday to expand the building to 23 stories, but the developer tells us that the single-story storefronts on 28th Street, behind the hotel, will support the new tower.
The pricey Oosten condo development has topped out with seven stories at 429 Kent Avenue in South Williamsburg, and workers have begun installing glassy facades on the building’s north side, along South 8th Street.
In January, the foundation was being poured at 333 Schermerhorn Street, the site of Steiner Studios’ 53-story, 581-unit mixed-use tower in Downtown Brooklyn; Brownstoner has the latest update, and it appears the tower portion is now rising and is already a few floors above the base podium. Dattner Architects and Goldstein Hill & West Architects are designing, and completion is expected in 2017.
