Over the past two months, 66 Hudson Boulevard, aka The Spiral, has made swift progress. The first steel beam for the 65-story skyscraper was dedicated in mid-April and erected at a time when the core foundation walls hadn’t yet reached street level. Now, the steel superstructure for the Bjarke Ingels Group-designed commercial office tower is three floors above the Midtown neighborhood of Hudson Yards.
Following approvals from New York City’s Department of Buildings, Epos Development will soon begin demolition at 347 Lexington Avenue in Murray Hill, Manhattan, to clear the way for the construction of a 20-story hotel. The new building will include 65 short-stay guest rooms, a communal lounge, and a multipurpose room on the ground level.
Permits have been filed for a five-story residential building at 276 20th Street in Greenwood, Brooklyn. Located between Fifth Avenue and Sixth Avenue, the lot is four blocks from the Prospect Avenue subway station, serviced by the R train. Daniel Greenberg of Green Street Group is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for a six-story hotel at 3294 Atlantic Avenue in East New York, Brooklyn. Located on the corner of Atlantic Avenue and Logan Street, the lot is one city block south of the Norwood Avenue subway station, serviced by the J and Z trains. Michael Gendin of Titan Equity Group is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Renown architect Norman Foster’s office skyscraper at 50 Hudson Yards is beginning to rise above street level. With 2.9 million square feet of floor space, it will be the largest commercial office building by square footage in the first phase of Hudson Yards, as well as the final structure in part one of Related Companies’ master plan. The site is bound by West 33rd Street, West 34th Street, Tenth Avenue, and Eleventh Avenue. The future 1,011-foot-tall tower sits across the street from 30 Hudson Yards, while construction on 66 Hudson Boulevard, aka The Spiral by Bjarke Ingels Group is also underway to the north. Oxford Properties and Mitsui Fudosan are the other two developers for the Foster + Partners-designed project.
