A recent split 2-2 vote by the Board of Standards and Appeals upheld the city’s Department of Buildings’ approval for 50 West 66th Street, which will become the Upper West Side’s tallest building. Local NIMBY group Landmark West was defeated in its assertion that developer Extell wrongly used mechanical space to bump up the 775-foot-tall height of the project without taking into consideration floor area restrictions.
Construction has topped out on Maverick, a two-building, 210-foot-tall residential project at 215 West 28th Street in Chelsea. Located between Seventh Avenue and Eighth Avenue, the 20-story development is designed by DXA Architects and being developed by HAP Investments, and consists of abutting buildings spanning over 300,000 square feet. The structurally identical reinforced concrete superstructures are addressed as 215-219 West 28th Street and 221-229 West 28th Street.

Permits have been filed for a seven-story residential building at 680 Lorimer Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
