YIMBY recently went on a hard hat tour to take in the views from 200 Amsterdam Avenue, the Upper West Side‘s tallest building. Designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects and developed by SJP Properties, the 668-foot-tall residential skyscraper is topped out and is awaiting the completion of its distinctive crown. CetraRuddy is the lead interior designer for the 283,000-square-foot project.
The Related Companies has released new renderings and a new name for Thomas Heatherwick’s High Line project at 515 West 18th Street: Lantern House. The pair of residential structures is located along Tenth Avenue between West 18th Street and West 19th Street and flanks both sides of the High Line, which has seen a dramatic transformation from new construction over the past decade. The development is Heatherwick’s first residential project in New York City and in the United States. SLCE Architects is the architect of record.
Newark city officials have revealed plans for the next phase of redevelopment that will surround the New Jersey Performing Arts Center and aim to transform the city’s entire downtown area. The initiative is formally known as the New Jersey Performing Arts Center Waterfront Masterplan and calls for the creation of a mixed-use urban center and rejuvenation of the blighted Passaic Riverfront.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 449 Chester Street in Brownsville, Brooklyn. Located between Riverdale Avenue and Newport Street, the lot is one block south of the Rockaway Avenue subway station, serviced by the 2 and 3 trains. L + M Development Partners is listed as the owner behind the applications.
This past September saw concrete reach the rooftop of Extell‘s record-setting Central Park Tower at 217 West 57th Street, and shortly thereafter One Vanderbilt‘s spire quickly come together at the top of SL Green‘s new commercial jewel. October has also commenced with a bang, and last week, workers installed the first steel for the crowning level of SHoP Architects‘ 111 West 57th Street, reaching the parapet 1,428 feet above the streets below. That makes the building the second-tallest in New York City by its parapet, ranking below the 1,550-foot Central Park Tower, and above the 1,396-foot 432 Park Avenue. Work has indeed reached the last section of the crown, but is important to note that the supertall has not officially topped out yet.
