Exterior work is nearing completion on 200 Amsterdam Avenue, the Upper West Side’s current tallest skyscraper and number 22 on our countdown of the tallest projects underway in the city. Designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects and developed by SJP Properties and Mitsui Fudosan America, the 668-foot-tall, 52-story structure will yield 283,000 square feet with interior design by CetraRuddy. The tower was the subject of intense NIMBY opposition earlier this year, culminating in a State Supreme Court ruling calling for a possible height reduction of 20 or more floors. However, the developers appealed the decision and construction continued as planned.
This week LCOR announced plans to construct a 461-unit rental building near the Coney Island waterfront in Brooklyn. The property is located at 1515 Surf Avenue and will include a mix of market-rate and affordable housing units, residential amenities, and 11,000 square feet of ground-floor retail.
Permits have been filed for a 12-story residential building at 1245 Edward L. Grant Highway in Highbridge, The Bronx. Located between Jerome Avenue and West 168th Street, the interior lot is five blocks west of the 167th Street subway station, serviced by the B and D trains. Stagg Group is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Façade work is getting closer to completion on Rose Hill, a 639-foot-tall residential skyscraper at 30 East 29th Street in NoMad and number 23 on YIMBY’s 2020 construction countdown. Designed by CetraRuddy Architecture and developed by Rockefeller Group, the 45-story reinforced concrete superstructure will yield 123 condominiums marketed by CORE Real Estate. The earth-tone envelope features a number of Art Deco-inspired motifs and architectural forms that aim to both blend with the Manhattan skyline while distinguishing it from other new nearby developments in the neighborhood. Sales have already launched for the homes ranging from one- to four-bedroom units and start at $1.385 million.
Construction is nearing topping out on Hunters Point South’s ‘Parcel G,’ a 33-story mixed-use tower at the southern tip of the Queens waterfront. Developed by Gotham Organization and designed by Handel Architects with SLCE Architects as the architect of record, the property will include 450 residential units, of which a portion will be designated for affordable housing, as well as a lower-level community facility. The site is located by the intersection of 2nd Street and 56th Avenue.
