Work is progressing on the steel superstructure of 270 Park Avenue, JP Morgan Chase‘s new 1,425-foot supertall headquarters in Midtown, Manhattan. The 2.5-million-square-foot skyscraper is located between Park and Madison Avenues and 47th and 48th Streets and replaces the Union Carbide Building, which is now fully demolished.
Construction is now complete on The Symon, a 13-story condominium building at 76 Schermerhorn Street in Brooklyn Heights. Designed by Colberg Architecture and developed by Lonicera Partners, Orange Management, and The Davis Companies, the property features 59 units with interiors by Studio DB, which also led the design of the façade. The project is located between Boerum Place and Court Street, along the border with Boerum Hill.
Renderings from Steven Harris Architects reveal a ground-up façade and window replacement project at 19 East 74th Street on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The property’s location in the Upper East Side Historic District will require the project team to obtain a Certificate of Appropriateness from the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC).
The affordable housing lottery has launched for 150 Lenox Road, an eight-story residential building in Flatbush, Brooklyn. Designed by BDF Design with interiors by BEAM Architects and developed by Promont NYC, the structure yields 42 residences, ground-floor community facility space, and parking for seven vehicles. Available on NYC Housing Connect are 13 units for residents at 130 percent of the area median income (AMI), ranging in eligible income from $76,286 to $167,570.
Construction has topped out on the ten-story addition atop 685 Fifth Avenue, a 100,000-square-foot office-to-condominium conversion in Midtown, Manhattan. Designed by Marin Architects and developed SHVO in partnership with Deutsche Finance, the $135 million project will yield 69 condominium units designed by March and White Design and managed by Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, as well as retail space with Fifth Avenue frontage marketed by Brookfield Properties. Coach, Stuart Weitzman, and TAG Heuer currently operate their stores on the lower floors of the edifice while work progresses above.
