Located to the south of the New York Stock Exchange on a narrow rectangular strip of land along Broad Street, the Financial District’s first residential supertall will soon rise at 45 Broad Street. The tower will eventually soar 1,115 feet above the crowded streets of Lower Manhattan, and should make a very dramatic impact on the skyline in the coming years. Clad with bronze-colored aluminum panels and an intricate mix of sleek vertical and curved lines, it is the 5th-tallest skyscraper currently under construction in New York City. CetraRuddy is the architect, while the developers are Madison Equities and Pizzarotti LLC.
Construction for the Hilton Grand Vacation Hotel at 12 East 48th Street is making substantial headway, as the facade and window systems begin to take shape. The 31-story hotel is being designed by Handel Architects and will eventually contain 161 rooms, an outdoor terrace, and ground floor retail.
Two weeks ago, YIMBY reported on the filing of permits for 761 East 233rd Street. Designed by Badaly Architect PLLC, the seven-story residential building will be located in The Bronx’s Wakefield neighborhood. A look at the newly released rendering of the project reveals a red brick and white cement block facade. The ground floor of this corner lot development appears to house the 52-car parking garage.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 2321 Belmont Avenue, in Belmont, The Bronx. Located between East 183rd Street and Crescent Avenue, the interior site is five blocks west of the Bronx Zoo. Less than a mile north is the Fordham train stop on the MetroNorth, and the 182nd-183rd Streets Station is less than one mile to the west, serviced by the B and D trains. Golan Darvish of Belmont Ave 2321 Corporation is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Major progress has been made for Brooklyn’s first supertall over the past several weeks. Excavation has continued apace, and more materials have also been delivered to 9 DeKalb Avenue as the year wraps up. The tower is the 6th-tallest building under construction in YIMBY’s end-of-year countdown, and will dramatically change the skyline of Brooklyn in the coming years. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS Development and the Chetrit Group, the 1,066-foot-tall residential and mixed-use project will house approximately 500 housing units atop its rejuvenation of an historic retail podium.
