Yesterday, construction topped-out on the TWA Hotel, which flanks the famous TWA Flight Center designed by Eero Saarinen at JFK Airport. This news comes almost exactly a year after the groundbreaking ceremony, held with Governor Andrew Cuomo on December 15th, 2016. The hotel creates 50,000 square feet of meeting and event space, as well as eight restaurants and six bars. 10,000 square feet of observation space will be made available to the public.
Permits have been filed for a three-story residential building at 22-10 47th Street, in Ditmars Steinway, Queens. Tenants will be fourteen blocks away from the Ditmars Boulevard Station, end of the line in Queens for the N and W trains. The site has been empty for over a decade and has been used intermittently for parking.
Permits have been filed for two conjoined mixed-use projects, both three stories, in Prince’s Bay, Staten Island. 29 and 31 Herbert Street will replace a parking lot two blocks away from the Prince’s Bay station, serviced by the Staten Island Railway. The SI-based Masucci Real Estate Trust will be responsible for the development.
Harry Macklowe’s most prominent project to date is certainly 432 Park Avenue, on the corner of 57th Street. But two blocks to the northeast, the developer’s CetraRuddy-designed tower at 200 East 59th Street is making a mark of its own, and is now almost complete. While the 35-story and 490-foot-tall tower may not be quite as tall as its sibling to the south, the concrete design has become another attractive addition to the Manhattan skyline, and today we have a look thanks to photos by DBOX.
