Demolition permits were filed last week for 5 East 51st Street, part of the assemblage that could give rise to New York City’s future tallest building by roof height. The future 1,556-foot-tall and 96-story Tower Fifth, is located in Midtown East, between Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue. Permits were previously filed for this lot in April, but later withdrawn. Filings for the remaining structures within the footprint have also been trickling in over the past few months, hopefully indicating that excavation for the prospective supertall is imminent.
Renderings have been released of a new mixed-use condominium building designed by Isaac & Stern Architects that is currently rising at 165 Lexington Avenue in Kips Bay, Manhattan. The 11-story building will comprise a modest 58,630 square feet.
A teaser site has launched for 76 Schermerhorn Street, aka The Symon, a 12-story building that is currently under construction in Brooklyn Heights. The structure will yield 59 residences spanning one- to four-bedrooms apiece. Several units, including three penthouses, will have their own private outdoor space. Eugene Colberg is the architect of record, while Studio DB is the interior designer for the residences, amenity spaces, and the curtain wall. Lonicera Partners, Orange Management, and The Davis Companies are the three developers for the property. Sales are being led by Stribling Marketing Associates. Pricing for the units has not been revealed yet.
The brick façade is rising at 292 Fifth Avenue, a new Midtown mixed-use hotel designed by Gene Kaufman Architect. Located along the border of Koreatown and NoMad, the reinforced concrete structure topped out earlier this year. Sam Chang is the developer of the project.
YIMBY recently went on a hard-hat tour of 5 River Park, aka 347 Henry Street. The reinforced concrete structure stands 15 stories to its roof, atop the Brooklyn neighborhood of Cobble Hill. The building is being designed by Romines Architecture with Fortis Property Group serving as the developer. There will be 25 condominiums ranging from one- to four-bedroom units. D S L V Studio, a Brooklyn-based design and decor company, is in charge of the interior decor and styling while exclusive sales and marketing is being handled by the Eklund Gomes and Maroni teams from Douglas Elliman. The sales gallery is located at 97 Amity Street.
