Work is moving along at One Wall Street, the largest office-to-condominium conversion project in New York City real estate history. The Financial District building has been steadily making progress with its interior makeovers, including the soaring oxblood and orange-colored walls and ceilings of the historic Red Room. Meanwhile, the glass curtain wall for the retail addition on the lower levels, as well as the multi-story addition atop the mid-century annex are becoming more prominent. SLCE Architects is the architect of record, and Macklowe Properties is the developer of the $1.5 billion project. CORE is handling sales and marketing of the planned 566 residential units.
The reinforced concrete foundation walls for 25 Columbus Drive have reached street level in downtown Jersey City. Additional rebar is sticking out and pointing upward, indicating the location of the columns and walls for the ground-up, 626-foot-high mixed-use project. Handel Architects is designing and Mack Cali is developing the proposed 57-story skyscraper, while Fogarty Finger is the interior architect.
Following approvals from the New York City Department of Buildings, Mortar Arch + Dev will soon begin construction on a new residential property at 206 Powers Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. In lieu of demolishing the location’s existing three-story building, Mortar will instead renovate and expand the property by one story to capitalize on the site’s allowable building area.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 710 Hart Street in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Located between Central Avenue and Wilson Avenue, the site is two blocks north of the Central Avenue subway station, serviced by the M train. Yehuda Cohen under the 710 Hart Street Realty LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Façade work is nearing completion at 125 Greenwich Street. Installation of the thin glass panels on the podium of the slender 88-story residential skyscraper is underway. This is the final portion of the curtain wall awaiting completion, apart from the sections behind the construction hoist, which should be disassembled soon. The 912-foot-tall glass and concrete skyscraper is designed by Rafael Vinoly and developed by Bizzi & Partners and Vector Group. The 273 residential units are being marketed by Douglas Elliman, while the interiors are being designed by March & White.
