Last week, the New York City Council approved a Flushing waterfront development set to cost $2 billion. The massive mixed-use project, which includes housing, commercial retail and office space, and hotel lodging, is being developed by a joint partnership between United Construction & Development Group, F&T Group, and Young Nian Group. The master plan, designed by Hill West Architects, will develop 29 acres of land bound by Flushing Creek, Northern Boulevard, College Point Boulevard, and Roosevelt Avenue, as well as upgrade the neighborhood’s public waterfront access.
Construction has passed the halfway mark at 601 West 29th Street, a 695-foot-tall residential skyscraper in Hudson Yards and number 20 on our countdown of the tallest buildings under construction in New York. Referred to as “Tower A” in a two-building development along with the adjacent 606 West 30th Street, the 58-story structure is designed by FXCollaborative for Douglaston Development and sits along Eleventh Avenue on the border of West Chelsea.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission has approved proposals to construct a glass-clad rooftop addition at 13 Harrison Street in Manhattan. The property is located within the TriBeCa West Historic District and thus required certificate of appropriateness from the voting commissioners.
