The amenity list for 220 Central Park South just landed a compelling addition. Jean Georges Vongerichten will manage a 54-seat, residents-only restaurant on the second floor of the Midtown residential skyscraper. The 67-story tower is designed by Robert A. M. Stern Architects and contains 593,000 square feet of interior space. Vornado Realty Trust is the developer of the $1.4-billion-dollar project and expects a $3.4 billion sellout.
Construction at 251 West 14th Street has risen even with the parapets of the adjacent buildings in Chelsea, and work will soon begin on the cantilevering floors that jut out over its western neighbor. Meanwhile, the structure’s central reinforced concrete core is climbing closer toward the top of the 11-story structure. Isay Weinfield collaborated with FORM4 Design Studio PLLC to design the residential property. Pizzarotti is in charge of the build, which is expected to yield a total of 25 condominiums.
The Jackson Group recently began leasing on a modest collection of “tough-luxe” apartments at 200 West 11th Street in Manhattan. Residential interiors by Ovadia Design Group embrace both grit and glamor, marrying polished, contemporary materials with exposed concrete ceilings and structural beams within each unit.
Permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use building at 4572 Manhattan College Parkway in Kingsbridge, The Bronx. Located near the intersection of West 242nd Street and Manhattan College Parkway, the lot is one block from the Van Cortlandt Park-242 Street subway station, serviced by the 1 train. Naser Ghorchian under the Roya 329 LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Installation of The Fitzroy’s Art Deco-inspired exterior recently wrapped up at 514 West 24th Street in Chelsea. The residential building’s sidewalk scaffolding has been dismantled and the final remaining touches on the ground floor are almost complete. The large canopy that hangs over the front door is installed, while several marble slabs at the base of the structure remain covered in a protective cardboard. This should be imminently removed, fully revealing the richly textured and dark-colored façade. The L’Observatoire International-designed spotlight fixtures, which will illuminate the glazed terra cotta panels and copper-framed windows, are all in place. The 65,300-square-foot project is being designed by Roman and Williams and developed by JDS Development and Largo Investments. Residences start at $5.6 million and are being marketed by CORE.
