Construction is now occurring above ground level on the 63-story, 483-unit mixed-use tower under development at 118 Fulton Street, located on the corner of Dutch Street in the Financial District. The progress can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the tower, dubbed 19 Dutch, will encompass 595,140 square feet and rise 758 feet above street level. That’s a significant height increase from the summer, when a 49-story tower was planned.

Construction is wrapping up on an expansion project at 68 West 126th Street, in Harlem, as seen in a picture by Harlem+Bespoke. A formerly dilabidated four-story, 11-unit brownstone SRO building has been redeveloped into a six-story, six-unit residential structure, per the latest building permits. The building now has 5,578 square feet of residential space, which means the apartments should average 930 square feet apiece. Many of the units will occupy an entire floor, although it’s unknown if they will be rentals or condominiums. An anonymous Harlem-based LLC is the property owner and Barry Goldsmith’s Brooklyn-based firm is the architect of record.
