Number 30 on our countdown of the tallest projects under construction in New York is the Turkevi Center, a 563-foot-tall mixed-use skyscraper at 821 First Avenue in the Midtown East neighborhood of Turtle Bay. Designed by Perkins Eastman, the 35-story tower will serve as the consulate for the Republic of Turkey.
Construction has topped out on the Radio Tower & Hotel, a 22-story building at 2420 Amsterdam Avenue in Washington Heights. Designed by MVRDV with executive architect Stonehill & Taylor and developed by Youngwoo & Associates, the building features a ceramic brick façade that breaks away into eight boxy volumes, each with its own distinct color. From top to bottom this includes a vibrant lime green and yellow that transition into subdued blue, red, orange, teal, and magenta materials. Overall, the building’s design draws inspiration from the diversity and vibrancy of the existing neighborhood and is described by MVRDV as a colorful welcome sign to upper Manhattan.

Located at the intersection of East 193rd Street and Bainbridge Avenue, the corner lot is within walking distance of the Kingsbridge Road subway station, serviced by the B and D trains. Bernard Bauer under the Bridgemarion LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 11 Lewis Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.

Goldberger under the 11 Lewis LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
