The six-story reinforced concrete structure for 200 Kent Avenue is now topped-out, and window frames are now beginning to be installed for the curtain wall on the upper floors of the eastern elevation. ME Architect P.C. is responsible for the design of the commercial building, while Isaac Hager of Cornell Realty Management is the developer. The development now stands 83 feet tall above the northern section of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and can easily be seen when traveling on the East River ferries. The lot measures 22,640 square feet, and was purchased by two anonymous entities back in the summer of 2016 for $33 million.
Permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use building at 183 Columbia Street in the Columbia Street Waterfront District, Brooklyn.

Cheung of 183-185 Columbia St. LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
On Friday, May 31, 2019, a new section of the 9/11 Memorial called the 9/11 Memorial Glade opened to the public in the Financial District. Designed by the original architects of the eight-acre memorial site, Michael Arad and Peter Walker, the dedicated space is located on the corner of West Street and Liberty Street, next to the Survivor Tree by the South Tower reflecting pool. Six large, upward-sloping monolithic stones are arranged on the edges of a newly-created, diagonally-oriented walkway. The Memorial Glade is to honor the men and women who have contributed to the recovery, rescue, and relief efforts during and after the 9/11 attacks and are sick, injured, or have passed away.
The first stages of excavation at 25 Columbus Drive are apparent as the asphalt from the former parking lot is now being ripped up. This will become the future site of a new mixed-use complex that will rise 626 feet tall and 57 floors high. Handel Architects is designing the proposed structure, while Mack Cali is the developer of the downtown Jersey City project. A total of 750 rental apartments, a 35,000-square-foot privately-funded public school for levels pre-K through first grade, four storefronts covering 16,485 square feet of retail space, and a public plaza will soon be built.
Developers Landsea Homes and Leyton Properties will soon begin construction on a contentious synagogue-condominium development on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.

When complete the structure will contain a new worship space for the Shaare Zedek congregation at the building’s lower levels with high-end condos positioned above.
