The steel superstructure is continuing to rise skyward at 50 Hudson Yards, the number-nine project on YIMBY’s countdown of the tallest buildings under construction in New York City. Workers have made a significant amount of progress since we checked in one year ago, when foundations were just beginning to make their way toward street level. Now, a mass of steel beams, columns, and trusses for the wide floor plates are ascending around the reinforced concrete core. Designed by Norman Foster of Foster + Partners, the 1,011-foot-tall commercial office supertall is the final segment of the first phase of Related Companies‘ Hudson Yards complex. Oxford Properties and Mitsui Fudosan are developing the 2.9-million-square-foot structure, the largest component in the 28-acre master plan by volume.
Installation of the curtain wall has begun on the lower podium floors of 145 West 47th Street, as the reinforced concrete superstructure continues to rise above the streets of Times Square. Designed by Berg + Moss Architects and developed by Tribeach Holdings, the 27-story building that will eventually house a 343-room RIU Hotel. 145 West 47th Street is expected to yield 141,500 square feet of newly built space.
An updated batch of renderings from developer The Collective offer a new glimpse of 292 North 8th Street, a forthcoming student housing development in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Designed by architects Stonehill Taylor, the building will top out at 11 stories and comprise approximately 100,000 square feet.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 2097 Davidson Avenue in University Heights, The Bronx. Located between West 180th Street and West 181st Street, the lot is one block north of the Burnside Avenue subway station, serviced by the 4 train. Vincent Massari under the 2097 Davidson LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Work is wrapping up on 220 Central Park South, number ten on YIMBY’s countdown of the tallest skyscrapers rising in the city. The 950-foot-tall, 67-story tower is designed by Robert A. M. Stern Architects and contains 593,000 square feet of residential space that overlooks Central Park and Columbus Circle. Vornado Realty Trust is the developer of the $1.4-billion-dollar project and expects a $3.4 billion sellout. SLCE Architects is the executive architect, while Thierry W. Despont is designing the building’s interiors.
