Permits have been filed for a nine-story mixed-use building at 540 Waverly Avenue in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn.

The Daten Group is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Taking the number-one spot in our annual construction countdown is the 1,550-foot-tall Central Park Tower, aka 217 West 57th Street, the tallest building by roof level in New York City and the entire western hemisphere, as well as the tallest residential building in the world. Work on the glass curtain wall is approaching the parapet of the slender reinforced concrete superstructure, which rises 99 stories above 57th Street, aka Billionaires’ Row. The project is designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill and developed by Extell, which is expecting a $4 billion sellout on the tower’s 179 residences. A 320,000-square-foot Nordstrom flagship occupies the base of the building.
Construction is nearing the halfway mark at 533 Mercer Street, aka 289 Jordan, in Jersey City. The superstructure has been steadily rising and will eventually top out as one of the tallest buildings to the west of the main downtown district. The 16-story structure is designed by Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects and developed by Mercer Jordan LLC, an affiliate of New York-based company Sequoia Development Group, GRID Real Estate, and Dresdner Robin. The mixed-use project is expected to contain 300 apartments.
Developer Promont NYC has gained approvals to construct a new eight-story apartment building near Prospect Park in Flatbush, Brooklyn. The structure will rise from an interior lot at 150 Lenox Road and will eventually contain 42 apartments and a small ground-floor community facility. At 688 square feet apiece, the homes will most likely be rentals.
