The curtain wall of SHoP Architects‘ dramatic supertall at 111 West 57th Street is nearing completion as condominium sales have begun to close. Developed by JDS Development, Property Markets Group, and Spruce Capital Partners, the world’s most slender building stands topped out 1,428 feet above Billionaires’ Row in Midtown, and is currently the second-tallest building in the city by roof height. Meanwhile, the first closings have been recently finalized for the Landmark Residences, a collection of 14 homes located inside the attached pre-war structure that are designed by Studio Sofield and marketed by Douglas Elliman.
Curtain wall installation is progressing at 145 West 47th Street as the reinforced concrete superstructure rises in Times Square. Designed by Berg + Moss Architects and developed by Tribeach Holdings, the 48-story building will span 141,500 square feet and house a 630-room RIU Hotel.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) will again review proposals to construct a 20,000-square-foot private residence at 11 Hubert Street in Manhattan’s TriBeCa West Historic District. Designed by E. Cobb Architects, this iteration of proposals includes updates to the structure’s glass facade, ground-floor privacy paneling, and cornice materials.
Permits have been filed for a 20-story mixed-use building at 72 East 120th Street in Harlem, Manhattan. Located at the intersection of Park Avenue and East 120th Street, the corner lot is a short walk to the 125th Street subway station, serviced by the 4, 5, and 6 trains. BFC Partners is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Exterior work is progressing on 232 East 54th Street, a topped-out 420-foot-tall residential tower in Midtown East. Designed by Ismael Leyva Architects, the 40-story structure is located between Second and Third Avenues near a number of notable buildings such as the Lipstick Building at 885 Third Avenue and the 915-foot-tall Citigroup Center, aka 610 Lexington Avenue. YIMBY last reported that Elk Investors was listed as the exclusive developer of the building, though ownership may have fully transferred to Mossanen Group and an LLC known as East 54th St. Properties.
