Developers Cape Advisors and Pioneer Group announced this week that Astoria West has topped out in Astoria, Queens. Located at 30-77 Vernon Boulevard, the massive three-building development will comprise 2.5 acres of waterfront land with views of the Manhattan skyline over the East River. Fogarty Finger Architects is responsible for the architecture and design, which includes 522,000 square feet across the three structures with 534 rental residences and a vast range of amenities.
Full demolition permits have been filed for 327 Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village, Manhattan. According to the filing, the site is owned by William Gottlieb Real Estate. Located at the intersection of Christopher Street and Bleecker Street, the site currently houses a four-story mixed-use building with two residential units and three commercial units. The 53-foot-tall structure was built as a two-story house between 1832 and 1833.
Construction is continuing to rise on Two Manhattan West, a 935-foot-tall commercial skyscraper in Midtown West. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill and developed by Brookfield, the 58-story office tower stands at the corner of West 31st Street and Ninth Avenue, directly to the south of One Manhattan West, its 996-foot-tall architecturally identical sibling. The building will yield 2 million square feet and is expected to cost $2 billion.
A teaser site with new renderings is now live for 208 Delancey Street, a 12-story residential development on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Designed by ODA and developed by New Empire Real Estate, the property will yield 85 units with sales launching this spring, led by Compass Development Marketing Group.
Exterior work is progressing on Park House, an eight-story residential building at 500 West 22nd Street in West Chelsea. Alternately addressed as 197 Tenth Avenue, the 33,662-square-foot structure is designed by Annabelle Selldorf of Selldorf Architects and developed by Brantwood Capital, and will yield ten units and 1,959 square feet of ground-floor retail space.
