Speculations for the topping out of the 73-story 30 Hudson Yards have been swirling for the last couple months, and now the fateful day has finally arrived. Yesterday morning, YIMBY received confirmation that the tallest building of the Hudson Yards mega-development has finally reached its pinnacle, with an American flag rising above the building’s parapet. While some steel remains to be installed before the crown is fully complete, the significance of this is akin to the topping of the spire of a cathedral. In this case, it is a monument to the capitalistic ideals that fuel the contemporary American economy.
Today YIMBY has the first look at new renderings of The Oakman Phase II, as the condominium project prepares to take rise in Jersey City. Designed by Fogarty Finger Architects for Shuster Development, both the first and second phases are products of a local initiative to enrich and invigorate the surrounding Powerhouse Arts District.
World renowned architecture firm Robert A.M. Stern Architects is working on yet another project on the Upper West Side, and this time it’s the restoration and interior design for 225 West 86th Street, aka The Belnord. The building is just off of the 1 subway line between 86th Street and 87th Streets, and Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 86 Starr Street in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The site is half a block away from the Maria Hernandez Park, and six blocks from the Central Avenue subway station, serviced by the M train. Ioan Sita is responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed for am eight-story community facility building at 3005 Grand Concourse in the Bedford Park neighborhood of the Bronx. The site is on the same block as Bedford Park Boulevard station, serviced by the D trains. Three blocks away is an identically named subway station, serviced by the 4 trains. Tracy Towers Medical PC is listed as behind the applications.
