Permits have been filed for a 24-story mixed-use building at 10 West 55th Street in Midtown, Manhattan. Located between 5th and 6th Avenues, the through lot is close to the 5th Avenue-53 Street subway station, serviced by the E and M trains, and 57th Street station, serviced by the F train. Leonard Wilf of Garden Homes under the 18 West 55th Street, LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications. The family behind Garden Homes and Skyline Developers purchased the abutting 9 West 54th Street and 10 West 55th Street lots, a combined 22,500 square feet, for $75 million last year.
Construction is now several floors above street level at 50 Trinity Place, a forthcoming Aloft Hotel in the Financial District. The project is designed by Peter Poon Architects and is being developed by FIT Investment Corporation, which purchased the property for $15 million eight years ago. Located at the intersection of Trinity Place and Rector Street, the site is located just to the north of 77 Greenwich Street.
Exterior work is getting close to completion at 125 Greenwich Street, the tallest residential skyscraper currently under construction in the Financial District. The 912-foot-tall, 88-story structure is designed by Rafael Vinoly and developed by Bizzi & Partners and Vector Group. Douglas Elliman is leading the sales and marketing for the building’s 273 residential units, which feature interiors designed by March & White. Plaza Construction is the general contractor for the project, which is located between Greenwich Street and Thames Street.
Work is now complete at 200 West 11th Street, a five-story residential building at the five-way intersection of West 11th Street, Seventh Avenue, and Greenwich Avenue in the West Village. The project is designed by SRA Architecture + Engineering and developed by The Jackson Group, which began leasing late last summer. Interior design was led by Ovadia Design Group and features contemporary material finishes, exposed concrete ceilings and structural beams, and large floor-to-ceiling windows. Jason Haber of Warburg Realty handled the property’s three rentals.
Earlier this year, the Landmarks Preservation Commission reviewed proposals from BKSK Architects to renovate and convert the historic Margaret Louisa Home in Union Square into a hotel. The design team returned to the LPC with updated proposals following feedback and criticism of the original designs. Located at 16 East 16th Street, the six-story Margaret Louisa Home was completed in 1891 and included 78 bedrooms, parlor and reception rooms, private and public dining spaces, and laundry facilities for over 100 women who lived in the building.
