Excavation and pilings are progressing for Strata Tower, Bjarke Ingels Group‘s 34-story commercial office skyscraper at 3 West 29th Street in NoMad. Formerly known as 29th & 5th, the project is being developed by HFZ Capital Group and is slated to top out at 551 feet, making it one of the tallest structures in Midtown below the Empire State Building. Pavarini McGovern, LLC is the general contractor for the nearly 300,000-square-foot development.
The wavy glass curtain wall is now fully installed on the northern and southern elevations of the 281-foot-tall Pendry Manhattan West Hotel, aka Four Manhattan West. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill and developed by Brookfield Properties, the topped-out, 21-story building is part of Midtown’s Manhattan West master plan, which sits directly across Tenth Avenue from Hudson Yards. The Pendry will eventually yield a total of 164 guest rooms and a selection of condominiums on the upper floors.
Developers have filed permits with the Department of Buildings to construct a residential building near the southern tip of Long Island City, Queens. Located at 10-27 Jackson Avenue, the structure will top out 11 stories above ground and comprise a total of 46,000 square feet.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 35-01 Beach Channel Drive in Far Rockaway, Queens. Located at the intersection of Beach 35 Street and Beach Channel Drive, the corner lot is one block from the Beach 36 Street-Edgemere subway station, serviced by the A train. The NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The steel superstructure of Two Manhattan West is beginning to rise in Midtown West. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill and developed by Brookfield, the 935-foot-tall office skyscraper will ascend directly to the south of the completed One Manhattan West and feature an identical architectural design. The 58-story building will contain two million square feet of office space and is projected to cost $2 billion.
