Last month, YIMBY toured the sales gallery for 125 Greenwich Street as the first in a series of skyline updates going live this week. Construction is moving quickly, and last we saw, the tower had risen over two-dozen floors, and nearly 300 feet, above ground. That leaves plenty of height left to grow before it makes an impact on the Lower Manhattan skyline. Famed architect Rafael Viñoly is responsible for the design.
Located among TriBeCa’s southern-most blocks, 30 Warren Street has officially topped-out. The mixed-use condominium project has peaked at 12 stories above street level, and work is expected to fully wrap by the close of 2019.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story residential building at 484 Sterling Place in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. The site is four blocks away from the Brooklyn Museum on Prospect Park. Next to the museum are subway stations for the 2, 3, 4, 5, and S trains. William Caleo of Brooklyn Home Company is listed as behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for a three-story commercial building at 559 Park Avenue, in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, near the neighborhood’s border with Williamsburg. The site is four blocks away from the Flushing Avenue subway station, serviced by the G train. The NYC Department of Sanitation is responsible for the development.
For the second day of 2018’s Skyline Week, YIMBY has photos from the top of 53 West 53rd Street, aka 53W53, which has been talked about for longer than any other skyscraper currently under construction in New York City. The supertall has been eleven years and a controversial 200-foot height reduction in the making. The tower will yield condominiums, galleries, and a restaurant, and its kinetic dark façade matches the vibrant energy of the Midtown streets below, with crisscrossing diagrid lines careening from the base up toward the spearheaded peak. The structure is on its way to a 1,050-foot pinnacle, which will handily pierce the surrounding plateau of 700 to 800-foot rooftops.
