Pace Gallery’s new building at 540 West 25th Street, located between 10th and 11th Avenue, has structurally topped out, and installation of the curtain wall is now well underway. The existing gallery is located next to the High Line at 508 & 510 West 25th Street, standing one story tall, and uses four large skylights that flood the interior with natural daylight. The new 60,000 square foot building will stand eight stories and be designed by Bonetti/Kozerski Studio, and developed by Weinberg Properties.

Permits have been filed for a fourteen-story mixed-use building at 2760 West 33rd Street in Brooklyn’s Coney Island.

The Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue subway station is the closest train station, located just over a mile away and serviced by the D and Q trains. DVL Inc is listed as behind the applications.

Renderings are out for a 74-story tower at 42-50 24th Street, in downtown Long Island City, Queens. If built, the structure would be a major addition to the borough’s vertical profile, with a speculative minimum height of 750 feet, based on double-height retail at the base. If it ends up being any higher, the structure would become the tallest structure in Queens. Its current competitor is 23-15 44th Drive, a condominium tower expected to rise 752 feet, and is located three blocks to the south. The tallest proposed building for the borough was formerly 29-37 41st Avenue, though developer Durst downsized the project to just 710 feet.
