Permits have been filed for an eight-story residential building at 183 Avenue B in the East Village, Manhattan.

YIMBY recently went on a tour of Jeanne Gang’s 620-foot-tall, 57-story skyscraper at 11 Hoyt Street, which has topped out in Downtown Brooklyn. Tishman Speyer is the developer of the Studio Gang-designed project that will give a bold and unique focal point to the neighborhood’s rapidly transforming skyline. The wavy, bright glass and precast façade is rising fast and will soon form a curtain wall with a distinctive rippling appearance. Edmund Hollander of Hollander Design is in charge of the landscaping for the outdoor green space above the motor courtyard and podium section. Interiors are being designed by Michaelis Boyd Associates and Hill West is the architect of record.
Construction on a 19-story residential building at 157-161 East 28th Street in the Manhattan neighborhood of Kips Bay is about to surpass several adjacent low-rise structures. Now clearing the sixth floor, the reinforced concrete structure will eventually be 191 feet tall. C3D Architecture is the project architect while Alex Forkosh of Forkosh Development is the developer of the 43-unit, 66,125-square-foot project. The company purchased the lot back in January 2018 for $43 million, and three low-rise apartment buildings were demolished to clear the way for the new structure.

Downtown New Rochelle may soon have an interesting addition to its skyline as plans were recently filed for a 48-story skyscraper at 11 Lawton Street.
