The Foster + Parters design for 425 Park Avenue’s revamp is making major progress. The Midtown office building will be aesthetically divided into three sections, with proportions defined by the remains of the formerly extant structure, which comprise its lowest floors. Thanks to Tectonic, we can confirm that the new tower is now making the transition from its second section into the final, vertical rise. Construction has 22 floors left until topping-out, or just over half of the 41 total floors that will result.
Just up the street from the Ace Hotel at 266 Schermerhorn, in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Boerum Hill, the Morris Adjmi-designed 211 Schermerhorn Street is now halfway up to its future height of 14 floors. The project is being developed by Oestreicher Properties and GPB Capital Holdings, LLC, who purchased the site for $30 million last year, and it will contain 48 units ranging from one- to three-bedrooms.
