Demolition is almost complete at 80 Flatbush Avenue in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, the site of an 840-foot-tall skyscraper, the 17th tallest project underway in New York City. A large amount of debris and rubble is scattered across the narrow, triangular property and awaiting removal. The steel frame of a previous structure is still standing but will soon be knocked down to make way for the new multi-structure, mixed-use complex developed by Alloy Development.
Foundation work has partially reached street level at 50 Trinity Place in the Financial District, the site of a new Aloft Hotel. The first half of the ground-floor slab has been formed, while the eastern half has yet to catch up. Bundles of steel rebar for the columns can also be spotted standing vertically on the property. Located diagonally across from Trinity Church at the corner of Trinity Place and Rector Street, the project is designed by Peter Poon Architects and is being developed by FIT Investment Corporation, which purchased the Lower Manhattan site for $15 million in 2012.
Construction has started on Park Haven Apartments, a new mixed-income apartment complex in Mott Haven, The Bronx. Located at the corner of East 142nd Street and St. Ann’s Avenue, the ten-story building includes 178 residential units, a ground-level grocery store, and community facilities.
Developer Two Trees has revealed plans for a mixed-used development with a beach on the Williamsburg waterfront in Brooklyn. Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group and landscape architecture firm James Corner Field Operations, the River Street Waterfront Master Plan proposal calls for two mixed-use towers and the redeveloping of land adjacent to the six-acre Domino Park, also a Two Trees project.
Work is nearing completion on Madison House, aka 126 Madison Avenue, number 18 on YIMBY’s countdown of the tallest projects under construction in New York City. Designed by Handel Architects, the 805-foot-tall, 62-story residential skyscraper topped out over NoMad with its façade almost entirely completed. Fosun Group and JD Carlisle are developing the nearly 300,000-square-foot project, while Douglas Elliman is handling sales and marketing of its 199 condominiums.
