As the 13th-tallest skyscraper under construction in New York City, Robert A. M. Stern’s 220 Central Park South was the third new major residential tower to rise along Billionaire’s Row, just after One57 and 432 Park Avenue. Enclosed in Alabama Silver Shadow limestone, the upcoming 950-foot building yields 70 floors of some of the most prime real estate in New York City, overlooking Central Park and Midtown. Vornado Realty Trust is in charge of the development, while SLCE Architects is the architect of record. The project sellout is expected to be around $3.4 billion.
Construction has kicked-off on Pendry Hotels’ premier New York City location, at 4 Manhattan West. The 21-story hotel is officially named Pendry Manhattan West, and will offer 164 guest rooms and a selection of condominiums positioned on the tower’s upper levels.
Full demolition permits have been filed for the four-story building at 2000 2nd Avenue, in East Harlem, Manhattan. The 6,516-square-foot structure built in 1910 has been used as mixed commercial and residential building since, with 6 residential units and 3 commercial units. It is unclear what plans are in store for the 1,896 square foot lot, as no new construction permits have been filed yet. George Cambourakis of Structural Engineering Technologies PC is listed as the applicant of record.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story residential building at 8800 Bay Parkway, in Bath Beach, Brooklyn. Located between Cropsey Avenue and Bath Avenue, the development is situated two avenues from the Bay Parkway subway station on 86th Street, serviced by the D train. The site is also close to the Bensonhurst Park and Belt Parkway. Billy Xiao of B & J Bay Property Inc. is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Situated immediately to the north of Hudson Yards’ first phase, 3 Hudson Boulevard sits at the corner of West 34th Street and Eleventh Avenue. Seen through the crowded perimeter of trailers, trucks, and mechanical equipment, one can get a small glimpse at the amount of progress the site has made since excavation officially began about one year ago. The tower is currently the 14th-tallest skyscraper under construction in New York City, and will rise 53 floors and 940 feet to its rooftop when complete. FXCollaborative is the designer, while the Moinian Group is the developer of the two million square foot project.
