Construction on the new expansion of the Jacob K. Javits Center is taking shape very quickly. Steel columns, beams, and large diagonal trusses can easily be seen rising above the original building from the street and from across the Hudson River, with multiple yellow construction cranes swinging and lifting the structural components into place.
Construction has kicked off on a new mixed-use residential development in Flushing, Queens. The building is located at 146-17 Northern Boulevard and is developed in collaboration by One Portfolio and two unnamed partners.
Permits have been filed for a 39-story high-rise at 1 Eagle Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Located between West Street and Franklin Street, the corner lot is eight city blocks north of the Greenpoint Avenue subway station, serviced by the G train. Dan Berger of Brookfield Property Partners is listed as the owner behind the applications for this tower along with an adjacent seven-story development at 15 Eagle Street.
Permits have been filed for a six-story apartment building at 535 East 12th Street in the East Village, Manhattan. Located between Avenues A and B, the interior lot is three city blocks from the 1st Avenue subway station, serviced by the L train. New York City’s Housing Preservation and Development is listed as the owner behind the applications. In December 2018, the site sought status as an Urban Development Action Area Project. Previous tenants had to vacate their residences in 2008 due to deteriorating structural conditions and have been displaced since.
The exterior curtain wall at 180 East 88th Street is making substantial progress as it swiftly encloses the 31-story reinforced concrete structure. The tower is now the tallest skyscraper on the Upper East Side above 72nd Street, with design by DDG. HTO Architects is serving as the architect of record, and Petersen Tegl, a Denmark-based firm, is in charge of the Kolumba masonry brick facade. The property will yield around 130,000 square feet of residential space when complete, averaging over 2,700 square feet per unit. There will be 52,000 square feet of communal facilities on the lower floors, and the remaining 1,100 square feet will be dedicated to commercial use.
