The demolition of 270 Park Avenue is progressing in Midtown East, as new scaffolding and netting have been installed on the exterior of the Modernist-style skyscraper. These join the construction elevator and sidewalk scaffolding that were assembled several months ago on the 1.5-million-square-foot, 52-story tower. JPMorgan Chase is the developer and Foster + Partners Architects is the design firm for the upcoming 57-story supertall that will rise in its place. Adamson Associates is listed as the architect of record.
Scaffolding and black netting shroud the façades of 110 and 112 Liberty Street in preparation for the demolition of the Financial District structures. The site is located across the street from Four World Trade Center, aka 150 Greenwich Street, and sits adjacent to the intersection of Liberty Street and Church Street. The pair of buildings will soon make way for a ground-up 30-story hotel designed by Stonehill & Taylor Architects and developed by Eddie Hidary of 112 Liberty Associates LLC, which filed demolition permits in March.
The Durst Organization has provided a first look inside of 10 Halletts Point, a dual-tower residential complex in Astoria, Queens. The property, which was designed and constructed in accordance to LEED Gold requirements, features a total of 2.4 million square feet and includes a 22-story tower, a 19-story tower, and a shared central podium. The development contains more than 400 apartments.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 169 Livonia Avenue in Brownsville, Brooklyn. Located at the corner of Thomas S. Boyland Street and Livonia Avenue, the lot is three blocks west of the Rockaway Avenue subway station, serviced by the 3 train. LM Development Partners is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Exterior work at 30 East 31st Street is making steady progress in NoMad. Located between Park Avenue South and Madison Avenue, the 479-foot-tall residential tower is designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and developed by Ekstein Development and Pinnacle Real Estate. The distinctive pattern of crossed beams at the top of the building will soon be enclosed with floor-to-ceiling glass. Douglas Elliman Development is marketing the 88,000-square-foot project, with prices ranging from $1.65 to $12 million. The 40-story structure will contain a total of 42 units spread across 70,070 square feet of space, for an average of 1,700 square feet apiece.
