Back in July, YIMBY provided you a construction update on 15 Hudson Yards, Related Companies’ 70-story, 960,000 square-foot mixed-use tower planned at Hudson Yards, in Midtown West. Foundation work is now well underway, and rebar as well as the first steel columns can been seen protruding from concrete. The building will include 365 residential units, which will be a mix of rentals and condominiums. The Culture Shed will extend horizontally east from the tower’s base. Diller Scofidio + Renfro and the Rockwell Group are designing, and completion is slated for 2018.
SL Green’s planned tower next to Grand Central is making significant headway, and demolition for the site’s former buildings is already ongoing. And while we had previously revealed several prospective views of the 1,500-foot supertall, which was approved by the City Council this past May, a tipster has sent along a few more renderings, giving a more comprehensive overview of the tower within the context of its Midtown surrounds.
Most of the new buildings planned for Ravenswood—a little industrial neighborhood on the East River between Astoria and Long Island City—are hotels. But on Friday, a new building application was filed for an unusual 10-story commercial project at 37-24 10th Street, between 37th and 38th Avenues.
There aren’t many big development sites left in the heart of Bedford-Stuyvesant, but one developer managed to snag a block-through site at 270 Nostrand Avenue, right around the corner from the Bedford-Nostrand G train stop. Aaron Lebovits’ Park Developers and Builders filed new building applications on Friday for a 241-unit apartment building on the lot between Dekalb Avenue and Koscuiszko Street.
Earlier this year, YIMBY revealed new renderings of World Wide Group’s and Rose Associates’ 65-story residential tower underway at 252 East 57th Street, in Midtown East, and now the tower has topped-out. The building will include 268 units, split between 93 condominiums and 175 apartments, and amenities include a porte cochére, a 34th-floor terrace and a 75-foot-long pool and spa. Retail will be included on the ground and second floors. SOM is the design architect, while SLCE Architects is serving as architect of record. Occupancy is expected in late 2016.
