YIMBY is kicking off its annual countdown of the 31 tallest buildings being built in New York City, starting with 606 West 30th Street, a 545-foot-tall residential skyscraper in Hudson Yards that recently resumed construction after a period of inactivity. Designed by Ismael Leyva Architects and developed by Lalezarian Properties, the 42-story mixed-use skyscraper will yield a total 312,350 square feet, of which 192,780 will be dedicated to residential space and 14,240 for commercial use. The Midtown, Manhattan property is located between Eleventh Avenue and West Street, near the border with West Chelsea. 606 West 30th Street is also known as Tower B in a two-tower development along with the adjacent 601 West 29th Street, an already topped-out 695-foot-tall skyscraper by FXCollaborative for Douglaston Development.
Richard Bienenfeld Architects has revealed a collection of new renderings for 840 Lorimer Street, a ten-story development in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, now under review by the Department of City Planning. From local developer Shabsi Parnes, the proposed building would comprise a lower-level retail component, office space, 74 rental apartments, and a parking garage designed to accommodate 30 vehicles.
Permits have been filed for a 20-story mixed-use building at 4650 Broadway in Inwood, Manhattan. Located between Sherman Avenue and Dongan Place, the lot is within walking distance of the two Dyckman Street subway stations, serviced by the 1 and A trains.
