Excavation has progressed significantly at 555 West 38th Street since YIMBY last checked in on the Hudson Yards site in late August. Construction workers have ripped up all of the asphalt from the parking lot that formerly occupied the property and have unearthed a substantial amount of dirt. The plot will eventually give rise to a 52-story residential skyscraper designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects and developed by Rockrose. Located directly across Eleventh Avenue from the Jacob K. Javits Center, the 570-foot-tall tower will contain 598 rental units. SLCE is the architect of record.
Construction is approaching the halfway mark on the Hotel Indigo at 120 Water Street in the Financial District. Designed by Gene Kaufman Architects and developed by Atlas Development, the slim reinforced concrete building will rise with a total of 28 stories and yield 52,000 square feet with 128 hotel rooms, a cellar-level fitness center for guests, a ground-floor restaurant, and a 25th-floor venue space. Fortuna Realty Group will serve as hotel management.
Construction has begun on 351 Marin Boulevard, a 38-story mixed-use development in Downtown Jersey City. Located between 1st Street and Bay Street, the tower will bring 507 residential units, 8,000 square feet of commercial space, 203 parking spaces, and a 4,500-square-foot public plaza to the area. Designed by Hollwich Kushner in collaboration with HLW International, 351 Marin is a joint venture between developer KRE Group and Northwestern Mutual.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 537 Brooklyn Avenue in East Flatbush, Brooklyn. Located between Maple Street and East New York Avenue, the lot is near the Sterling Street subway station, serviced by the 2 train. Lev Kheyfets under the 537 Brooklyn Avenue LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Work on the expansion of the Jacob K. Javits Center continues to progress in Hudson Yards. The massive expanse of steelwork is in place and offers a sense of the scale of the 1.2-million-square-foot addition. Tvsdesign is the designer and Empire State Development Corporation is the developer of the new northern wing, which is expected to cost $1.5 billion. Once completed, the project will bring the convention center’s combined square footage to 3.3 million and add an extra 22,000 square feet to the largest green roof in New York City. The construction and design build is being overseen by Lendlease in a joint venture with Turner Construction Company.
