Extell’s assemblage between East 79th and East 80th Streets in Yorkville, Manhattan, is inching closer to reality, with demolition permits now pulled for the bulk of the extant structures. The mixed-use, residential buildings set to meet the wrecking ball include addresses 1514 though 1528 First Avenue.
Permits have been filed for a four-story school at 1846 West 1846 West 13th Street, in Gravesend, Brooklyn. The facility will be an addition to the existing space at P.S. 97, known as The Highlawn. The site is six blocks away from the 25th Avenue subway station, serviced by the D and F trains, and two stops away from Coney Island. The NYC School Construction Authority will be responsible for the development.
Construction is well underway for what will eventually become the Financial District’s tallest residential tower, a 64-story supertall at 45 Broad Street. Thanks to a reader providing an overview photograph, we can see that trucks are currently removing debris from the site, and reports indicate that concrete trucks are also moving in and out, indicating that excavation is now in full swing. Drilling for the foundational piers has already started. Pizzarotti LLC is responsible for building and developing the tower, along with Madison Equities and AMS Acquisitions.
Construction is moving along at 685 First Avenue, as it nears completion in Murray Hill, Manhattan. The 42-story tower has officially launched sales ahead of its anticipated opening later this year, or early next.
New renderings have been revealed for a 14-story mixed-use building proposed at 21-12 30th Road, in Astoria, Queens. The site is currently under environmental review by the City. Variety Boys and Girls Club is responsible for the development.
