Construction has topped out on the two-story addition on the Textile Building, a 16-story commercial building at 295 Fifth Avenue in Midtown South, Manhattan. Designed by Studios Architecture and developed by Tribeca Investment Group, PGIM Real Estate, and Meadow Partners, the $350 million project involves the expansion and gut renovation of the 100-year-old structure, which is located between East 30th and East 31st Streets, a short walk to the Empire State Building. CBRE is handling marketing of the 700,000 square feet of updated office space.
Construction has resumed on H Hotel W39, a 29-story hotel at 58 West 39th Street in Midtown. Designed by Peter F. Poon Architects and developed by Wei Hong Hu of H Hotel LLC, the 447-foot-tall project had been stalled since the early months of 2020. City Cross Construction Corp. is the general contractor for the structure, whose design features a radical cantilever that gives way to a tapered glass dome. The footprint of the tower rests on a relatively narrow plot between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, just south of Bryant Park.
Construction is now underway on the final tower of Journal Squared, a three-skyscraper development in Jersey City. Designed by HWKN Architecture and Handel Architects and developed by Kushner Real Estate Group and National Real Estate Advisors, the 60-story building will yield 600 rental apartments with interiors designed by Major and Handel Architects.
